Title: Stephen Whitehill, Worfield
Post by: Barbara F on Wednesday 05 February 14 14:53 GMT (UK)
I wonder if anyone has access to the Worfield parish registers who can check a baptism for me please?

Family search has Stephen Whitehill son of Charles and Sarah baptised Worfield 10 June 1752 born 8 June.

Hi Noreen

How interesting to find a Whitehill researcher. :)

I did manage to get copies of PR entries for Worfield. I will have a look and see what I have for the family.

My husband is connected through Louisa Whitehill (Stephens' daughter) who married James Stevens.  Their daughter married Malcolm Lewin from another East India Company family.  What is your connection?

I have also found a marriage for Louisa to George Bartley in 1823 Bombay india so she must have married twice ???

That marriage doesn't sound right. 

I have Louisa bap in Bombay on 25 November 1781.  I haven't found her marriage to James Stevens as yet.

Will be in touch.

Best to remove your email from your post.

I have the orig image of find my past on the date I gave you but her name is louisa maria whitehill & she puts her mark to the marriage which I find strange  what is a bit difficult is that Charles white had some slaves that took the whitehill name Ii wonder if it could be one of them
 ???

I have just been working out why I cocluded that Louisa who married James Stevens was the daughter of Stephen Whitehill.

When Louisa died her executors were William Warden Bell nephew and Charles Forbes Shephered grandson. I believe William Warden Bell was the son of Sarah Whitehill and Alexander Bell?

Do you have Stephen Whitehill's will?  That mentions that his 2 older daughters Mrs Bell and Mrs Torin have his younger daughter Louisa under their care.

I wish I could find the marriage of Louisa to James Stevens. It is very frustrating! Their youngest son had the middle name Whitehill and the name was used again for a grandson, Malcolm Whitehill Lewin.

Hi Barbara

Not sure if you've resolved this already.

I'm researching this family for a friend and this thread came up on a Google search.

On FIBIS there is a reference to an entry in the Asiatic Annual Register recording the marriage of J Stevens to Louisa Whitehill, 3rd June 1800 in Mahe:

Thanks Gaie.

It is a long while since I looked at this family so will check and get back to you.  Looks very promising!

What is your friend's link with the Whitehills?

Well Gaie, I don't know how I missed that on FIBIS as it is a site I use often. I am sure it is the right marriage. I can't find it in the British India Ecclesiastical records on FindMyPast although I have all the baptisms of James' and Louisa's  children.

Do let me know if there is anything I can help you with.

I am researching a brief biography of John Whitehill Stevens for the local historical society. He was born in 1811 in Tellicherry, India, son of James Stevens and Louisa Whitehill. He was in Australia in the 1840s and early 1850s before moving to London. He died there in 1891.
I have constructed a tree of several generations for John and his siblings and would be happy to swap information.

Hi

Very happy to share information.  Have just returned from holiday so it may be a few days before I can check what I have.

My recollection is that John W Stevens was the brother of Louisa Stevens who married into the Lewin family. I think John had 2 sons one was a vicar and one was an Army Officer.

Hi again.

Brief details of what I have.

James Stevens m Louisa Whitehill 3 June 1800 and they had 7 children: Joanna Maria, Louisa, Ann, Fanny, Stephen James, Charlotte and John Whitehill.  I have further information on Joanna who married Malcolm Lewin and on Stephen James.  Fanny died in 1816.  I have no more information on the other 3 girls and very little on John Whitehill.

I have not tracked down a copy of the marriage of James to Louisa but it was reported in the Asiatic Annual Register.

Louisa was the daughter of Stephen Whitehill and Juliana Ringrose who married 6 July 1778.  I have 7 children for them.

Stephen was the son of Charles Whitehill and his second wife Sarah Law.

James Stevens was the son of John Stevens and Joanna surname unknown as yet.  he had one brother and one sister as far as I know.

Happy to expand.  Please let me know what you have.

Barbara

Edit: Sorry - James Stevens was the son James and Joanna.
