Hi,

David & Venuta Walker come up as Maria Agnes Rebecca Walker's parents on IGI parent search (bpt 4 Nov 1818, St Andrew, Jamaica) so I'm guessing that Benvenuta Walker, aged 45 in the 1841 Windywalls census is the same person (Maria's mother).

Mary Walker, aged 35, Independant, looks like the wife, soon to be the widow, of Capt. Robert Walker RN of Windywalls, whose will (23 pages) & testament (3 pages) is listed on SP, dated August 1841.

It also looks as if Benbennta EJ Scott who appears in the 1851 English census is a mis-transcription of her grandmother's name: Benvenuta

There is also a baptism for William Scott, 19 Sep 1802, Lillieslief, parents: David Scott & Agnes Oliver.  Their other children include James 1804, David 1806 & Margaret 1811.  Given the text of the biography, William Scott & Elizabeth Henderson seem the best fit parents for your particular William.

Regards,

Richard, William Scott's wife Maria Agnese Rebecca Walker is a distant relative of mine (2nd cousin 4 x removed). I was wondering how you are related?

Maria Agnes Walker and William Scott are my GGG grandparents. Does anyone have any further information, especially Marias parents David & Benvenuta (my grandpas middle name is Walker and his sisters middle name is Benvenita, always wondered where those names came from, now I know)
