Hemmings children - Bell Inn Alveley
« on: Saturday 30 August 08 22:52 BST (UK) »
Hi there,
Just a quick note wondering if anyone can help piece together this mystery ?

William Hemmings married Mary Ann Tolley
They begin married life on the outskirts of Alveley at Cookscross and later move to the Bell Inn.

They had seven children -

EDITH EMILY, born 1881
ETHEL JANE bapt 1882
PHOEBE CHRISTINE, bapt 1885
LAURA LOUISA, bapt  1886
FRANCES MARION, bapt  January 1889
(Frances died aged 3 yrs)
ALICE, bapt 1890
AGNES, born 1893


William (husband of Mary Jane Hemmings) died 26th  September 1893 aged 34.
Mary Jane stays on at the Bell Inn and marries a William Bill.

After Mary Jane remarries her children from her first marriage seem to disperse !
The only info I can find is-
Edith married a local man named William Link in 1900
and according to the 1901 census Phoebe Hemmings is employed at the Moor House Alveley

I think Agnes may have later married a William Gould, but I'm not sure

Any help or info on piecing things together would be much appreciated
 :) :) :)

Jane

No, not yet, any help much appreciated
Poor Mary, I feel so sorry for her.........she has several children by William Bill, only one survives. She then dies herself in 1905 aged just 45.
William Bill leaves The Bell..........so far I haven't found out why ???
