Diana Ainsley ELLIOTT birth about 1777
« on: Wednesday 12 January 05 04:13 GMT (UK) »
My 3GGrandmother Diana Ainsley ELLIOTT was born in Glamorgan, in about 1777. She married Francis William BOWZER 11 Jan 1803 in Bristol, but died back in Glamorgan, at Cadoxton Juxta Neath 5 March 1814.
Her father Philip ELLIOTT was a Burgess of Bristol at the time of her birth, but I have no information on his wife.
Any suggestions on how to track down her birth record would be welcome.

You mention "Philip ELLIOTT was a Burgess of Bristol at the time of her birth" Do you have any further information on him such as the address he lived in Bristol & properties he perhaps had in Glamorgan? His religion & place of worship?

This information on Philip could help you trace which parish records will hold information on Diana

Philip Elliott is a direct ancestor of mine, I have a certain amount of information about him including a miniature of him as a fairly mature man. He was certainly an interesting man and had a successful career as a merchant partly in London partly in Bristol. He was a tea merchant and not involved in the slave trade as far as I can see. He married an Elizabeth Munday on 3.7.1771 at Newcastle, Bridgend.
  I would be interested to hear what info you have about him.

Tucked away by the organ in Cadoxton Church, Neath, is a memorial to Diana AINSLEY, wife of Wiliam Ainsley.  I don't have full details at the moment but they are sure to be linked to your family.  I am trying to decipher the histories of some of the more obscure memorials in the church so, although not related, I would be delighted to get in touch.

I have also been writing an article recently about Francis William Bowzer and his time at Tynyrheol, Tonna, Neath - so again I'd love to hear from you.
