Wiltshire / EYLES from Atworth/Atford - A very big ask - BMD from the 1700s
« on: Tuesday 20 November 18 07:10 GMT (UK)  »

I am trying to untangle my EYLES ancestors.

I have an ancestor Thomas EYLES and his brother William. I know that William was born about 1739 and that their father was also named William.

Familysearch has some baptisms for EYLES children - Mary (1729), Martha (1732), mother Elisabeth. Then Betty (1743), John (1745) and Charles (1746), mother Anne. All born/baptised Atworth. I don't know if this is my family as neither William or Thomas' records are there. Did William snr marry twice? With the exception of Charles, these christian names are all names associated with my ancestors down the line

Thomas may have died about 1791 and I know that William died in 1818, probably in Melksham.

What I need is any BMD information that there is for the EYLES family in Atworth during the 1700s and into the 1800s.

Thomas' wife was Esther HUNT and a tree that I have been looking at has her burial in Atworth, 26 June 1804.

Your help will be much appreciated

I am trying to find the age and any other details related to the burial of Betty CROOME 2 June 1797. He husband was Charles who died 10 February 1809.

Betty was a widow in 1757 when she married Charles under the name Betty HUNT

Well that's great - perhaps explains the differing occupations. Fantastic thanks

Thanks for that. I had spotted bits of those items and had decided that the James mentioned in 1831 was the son (and I didn't know what the item referred to only that it mentioned James Chambers late or formerly of Redditch). So you think the father?? More investigating!

I also wondered about George the 'plumber' in 1851. He was a painter in 1841. But James was a plumber and glazier, he had another brother, Richard who was a painter and a third brother, John who was a plumber and glazier in 1851 after having been a painter in 1841.

Can you see Redditch burials at all?

If so could you look for any records for James senior and his wife Elizabeth or an earlier wife Elizabeth please.

Many thanks

Hi all

This is truly amazing. Thanks so much for finding George's death - it's just about done my head in!

Yes that is George in 1841 married to Susan Horton       

And thank you for the info on John Hemmings CHAMBERS as I hadn't discovered him at all so that opens up more possibilities.       

Fantastic work everyone and much appreciated  ;D

Yes, that's the one.

No I don't have James' occupation yet. The basic transcription is on FamilySearch but I need to get to the library to view the actual record. Witnesses could be useful as well.

I've found two brothers of George and tracked them but there are two sisters and I can't find what happened to them yet.

I'm pretty confident that George died sometime between 1852 and 1861 but his death does not seem to be registered - in Warwickshire anyway.  >:(

I am looking for help with George CHAMBERS, father James please

FamilySearch has a baptism for a George, 6 Aug 1815, to a James and Elizabeth. Two other siblings have the same baptism date. On the 1841 (unreliable I know) and 1851 census George's year of birth is abt 1811. Can anyone confirm that this George is my George please.

Also, can anyone give me the marriage details of James to Elizabeth Unk please

Many thanks
