WILLIAM WOOSNAM of CERI 1780-82
« on: Thursday 04 October 07 21:01 BST (UK) »
I am looking for further information about the origins of my 4xgt grandfather William Woosnam who farmed in the Welsh/Shropshire borders.

William Woosnam married Sarah Chilmick in Shrewsbury St. Chads in 1805 (Pallots).  I have found William in the 1841 and 51 censuses: Sarah died in 1826.

I would like to know if any more experienced Woosnam researcher has come across a William Woosnam, originally born in Ceri around 1780-82, about whom nothing else is known.  I suspect William was a junior son, possibly from a farming family, whose parents may have been called Robert and/or Mary.

Any hints as to possible leads would be most gratefully received.

Thank you.

Rachel

Hi Rachel,
I was scanning through the forum listing yesterday and the name Woosnam stuck with me. Today whilst looking through an online list of Powys Family History 'strays' from for Hugheses I came across a William Woosnam witness to a Hughes wedding:
Name: Sarah Jenkins
Location: Mochdre Montgomeryshire
Record Type: Marriage
Date: 1832
Information: Thomas Jenkins of Kerry Bach married Sarah Hughes, Spinster, Of this Parish, On 29 Sept 1832, with Witness William Woosnam.
Ref: [None given].
On searching the list contains 26 Woosnam strays - Hope it's of interest.
Regards
Jonathan

Thank you, Alberbury - I'll have a close look at that.  :)

Hi Rachel,
I am only new to RootsChat and given the age of you post, you may have additional information you were after, to which I am probably not able to add any more. I am not a descendant of William WOOSNAM but I am a descendant of Evan WOOSNAM (b1796-1800 d 1864). Evan WOOSNAM married Anne CHILMICK in 1823. I have noticed that spelling changes between CHILMICK and CHELMICK. Somehwere along the line I think there must be links between William and Evan WOOSNAM and Sarah and Anne CHILMICK? To date I haven't been able to find such links. Have you been able to confirm William's parents?
Cheers Deb

Hi, Although I am not related to William Woosnam of Ceri 1780-82, I am related to Evan Woosnam who was born 1800 in Mainstone, and married Anne Chelmick.  I see that you are also and would be interested to know which of Evan's children is your ancestor.

Hi Wales Girl,
Sorry to disappoint but I am not descended from one of Evan & Annes children but rather from Cecil Clarence WOOSNAM who is a child of Evan's from his second mariage to Elizabeth WILLIAMS. But have included all Evan's children in my research which has led me off on many tangents and my initial question on the chat line.
