Thanks Allen it was the second marriage that threw me its Esther FROUD(Belcher ) who is causing the problems she had a child  Walter in 1855 who was brought up by her parents she  married shortly after and on the 1861 census has a Daughter older than Walter so it looks like she married a widower  she really is a mystery woman
Thanks for the help

Hi Trees,

I don't have an Esther Belcher born/bapt. in the Hanney PRs . I did just check again on the fiche from 1800-1812 but drew a blank.

On the IGI there are about three Esther's recorded  from 1797 to 1804. The entry for 1798 I checked with the
PRs (ex OFHS) that I have and it clearly states;
Esther BELSHER bapt. 14-9-1798 (b.6-9) dau of Thomas & Mary whereas the IGI entry lists Martha as the mother.
Some of the IGI entries are "submitted" but I noticed there were about two that are "extracted"

Does this help?

In 1861 she had a niece Elizabeth Belcher b 1837 W. Hanney with her. Could the niece give a lead to Esther? I wonder if Esther was a widow as she married about 35 ???

Hi Trees,

I can't help any more regarding the Hanney PRs as they only go up to 1812 for both baptisms & marriages,
and only to 1783 for burials.

I understand later records up to about 1836 are held by the Wilts & Swindon Records Office, in Swindon.

The only Elizabeth BELCHER baptised at Hanney at the right time to be the above is a daughter of James BELCHER and Caroline (nee FROUDE).  Elizabeth was baptised on 22 May 1836.

How many Belcher families are in the area at the time? Are you sure you have checked them all?

Hi Orpheus that is the only one I can see too, but James had neither sister nor sister in law Esther ???

However this  Elizabeth had a brother Henry whose first wife was Katherine Dore daughter of George Dore and Esther Belcher  so would the sister of a son in law be known as a Niece in those days?

That however still leaves me wondering who Esther's parents were or if she was widow when she married George Dore whose widow was she

My connection with this puzzle is through the FROUDs

Trees quite puzzled still

Seems like the answer will be the marriage certificate of George DORE and Esther BELCHER Wantage Reg. Dist. 6 493 Dec Qtr 1843
