I've got a Joseph Wilks who married Ann Reeves 4 Dec. 1794 at Winchcombe in Gloucestershire. They had a son Richard born 1800 at Hallow (baptised Dec 1802) – the only child I could find. Richard married Maria Severn and they had Thomas, Ann, Mary Ann, Caroline, Charlotte, William, Hannah, John (bap. April 1843) and Sarah.

There could be a connection with your John born in 1790 … I'd like to find siblings for my Richard. It seems odd that he appears to have been an only child.

Good evening all, just came across this thread via a google search for Richard Wilks and Maria Severn as I am trying to extend my tree...



Is anyone still active?

I think St Johns, Bedwardine used to be the main parish of the City of Worcester.
