The marriage of William Ashley and Mary Tines at Berkley (Somerset, I guess) sounds interesting. I have been unable to find the source. Can you help? It might provide us with the bridegroom's home parish.
There seems to be no other reference to Ashleys at Keynsham apart from Elizabeth's baptism in 1734/5. They may have moved temporarily across the parish boundary from Burnett. Of course, that is surmise!
I have been plotting the glebe fields which William farmed on the manorial map of 1736 and adding the additional 94 acres which he or his son farmed in conjunction with William Willand by 1755, including Elm (Tree) Farm. As it hangs on the wall, I can see one possible site for the cottage on the void.

Hi Ruffer,

I got the marriage of William Ashley and Mary Tines from FreeReg.  There is no other information that will tell us the Bridegrooms parish, just the date 29th March 1730. 

There are a few other entries which I have taken provisionally as being the same family until such time as I can verify that they do belong together.
