William's parents were Robert Ashley (1754-1824) and Sarah Nurse (1754-1822) Robert was born in Burnett, and died in Wrington, Somerset. They married 1773 in Compton Dando.
Robert's parents were William Ashley and Mary Bailey.

Hi jarlotte,

Christenings, St Mary, Compton Dando to WILLIAM/MARY Ashley;
SARAH 03 July 1808
BETSY 12 Aug 1810
ANN 13 May 1813, Buried 30 June 1816, age 3
JOSEPH 14 March 1816, Buried17 March 1816 age 8 weeks
ANN 03 June 1817
WILLIAM 14 May 1820
MARIA 02 Nov 1822
MATILDA 03 Feb 1825
JOSEPH 03 April 1828
MARY March 1831, private received 23 March 1831
ELIZA 03 Nov 1833
Most have Fathers Occp as Labourer.

So on 1841 Census Mary/Elisa are their Children not Grandchildren as one would think given their ages;
William ASHLY, 65, Ag Lab
Mary Ashly, 55
Mary Ashly, 10
Eliza Ashly, 7

Burials, same Church;
WILLIAM 27 April 1856, age 84
MATILDA 05 Nov 1858, age 23
MARY 22 May 1870, abode Publow, age 83

1841 Census MATILDA is away from Home under Watilda Ashley c 1825 and JOSEPH c 1828 is working in Publow in 1841.

SARAH Married John PIKE 11 Aug 1828, with Consent of Parents
MARY Married Frederick HUNT, 15 Jan 1855

1806 and 1773 Ashley Marriages are on FreeREG in Compton Dando also, with Witnesses names.

Your welcome Julie,
Have a look around on FreeREG www.freereg.org.uk as lots of Somerset Records on there.
Sometimes you may need to use the soundex option.

Hi,
Who do you have as the earliest Ashley in your tree?
I have got back as far as William born 1730 in Bath St. Michael and died 1784 in Burnett, Somerset. Wife Mary Bailey, married in 1753.
Would love to learn his parents names.
Thank you

I have the parents of William as Robert Ashley & Mary, I got this from somebody elses family tree, but as yet I have no proof that this is correct. His siblings are Sarah 1724, Betty 1726, Ruth 1727, Thomas 1730 and James 1730. Have tried to check this but can find no Bath records to verify it. Hope this helps.
Julie

I have the same data as you have. I think the Robert and Mary is just a guess and I can't find any proof of that at all, so I am not going to use it.
I guess we will just keep on sleuthing!
But we are definitely distantly related. I descend from William's son George(1760) while you follow Robert's (1754) tree.
Thanks again
