 I went through the fiche of the Blewbury register today while in the Berks FHS search room, looking for your Francis.  I was using the Oxford FHS fiche which is a transcription and so while Francis was missing he may be in the original register.  Around 1755 there were a number of children baptised with parents Richard and Elizabeth Butler.  She was called Betty for some of the earlier ones.

Baptism dates of children:

Betty 19 Jan 1752
Mary 9 Dec 1753
Richard 26 Sep 1756
John 5 Jun 1759
William 14 Mar 1762
James 24 Apr 1763
Sarah 2 Mar 1766

I went back a few years and there were no other Butlers and forward when there was another family in the 1770s after 1777 I think.

David,

Thank you very much for taking the time to look for Francis Butler for me. Unfortunately I think that there's a problem with his details.

I was searching familysearch.org for the parents of George Butler born abt.1782, Blewbury. In the IGI records I found the following,

George Butler, born 26 Oct,1783 Blewbury Berkshire.
Parents are Francis Butler born abt. 1755 and Lydia Westall, also of Blewbury Berkshire.

I have since subscribed to Ancestry.com, and  found this family in the  Durston, Somerset parish records. It would appear that someone has confused Upton, Somerset with Upton Berks.

If you are intending to visit the Berks FHS search room again, would you mind having a look for George Butler,born abt. 1782.

Many thanks,

Steve.

I can't find the reference but I have feeling that this Upton problem is with Ancestory and has been discussed before in this chatroom.

I had a feeling as I typed the original reply that I should have made notes on that later baptism.  I go into Reading about once a fortnight and will look next time.  If you find anything meanwhile can you post it on this thread please.

If you have any interations with Dew or Edlin in this area we can probably have a useful interchange.

Blewbury Parish Registers all for children from Upton.

Baptisms of children of Francis and Lydia Butler:

Mary 3 Oct 1780
George 26 Oct 1783 born 20 Oct 1783
Sarah 11 Feb 1787 born 4 Feb 1787
John Westall 13 Jun 1790 born 31 May 1790
William 14 Aug 1796 born  6 Aug 1796

Francis Butler of Upton married Lydia Westall of Upton 22 Aug 1780 by Banns wit: Thomas Butler William Frued.

William Frued must of been parish clerk or something similar because he witnessed most marriages in this period.

There was nothing else which obviously related to this family.

David,

Thanks for checking these details again for me.
I'll email Ancestry.com and make them aware of the error.

Steve - I am a Butler and I have traced my famly to Hampshire in the early 1700's, but then a brick wall. I tested my DNA and matched to a Butler family in Hampsted in the early 1800's that I think came from Chaddleworth, Berks., the problem is that we cannot connect the documentation trail.
I am now looking to confirm my 'guess'.
If you are a Butler, I was wondering if you had considered DNA testing as an aid to family history research.
regards

Hi Allen,

I tried to reply earlier, but I got an error message when I tried to post it.

I am not a BUTLER, I am related to them through my g-grandmother,
Annie Butler, so I doubt if I would be of much help to you for a DNA test.
