I think William also left a will, the probate of which is on ancestry but again my internet is going slow and won't let me see the image.

I have to say... as a newbie i did not expect that much help so quickly!!!  ;D

Thank you very very much!!! Here is my thing with the Wayhams.... my Great Great Granfather was born Sidney Hill Baker. His father and mother never married and listed themselves on many a census in Willenhall as husband and wife... but they were lying as they never got married (still don't know why). Sidney's mom and dad were called (according to the census's) 'Sidney Hill' and 'Jane Baker'. But i could never find Sidney Hill ever being born or passing away. After a lot of digging i believe Sidney was born Sidney Alexander Wayham and was the first child of William Wayham and Hannah Hill. So i am very excited to know where you got that possible Wolverhampton marriage from?? ???
I have ordered the birth certificate of Sidney Wayham... in the hope it will def prove his mother was Hannah Hill... if it is i hope to tie up that when his parents moved to Alcester... that he was left behind with his Grandparents... and as such took on the name 'Hill'.

Do you have any ideas of how to prove this theory... because although i know Sidney 'Hill' died between 1901 and 1911... as you say... Wayham (if it was his birth name) has a zillion different misspellings.. and its very difficult to know which one is correct.

Once again... even if you can't help anymore... thank you very very much  ;D

And yes... i would imagine 'Millenhall' is indeed 'Willenhall'. Its a village i guess between Wolverhampton and Walsall.

Possible marriage. On same page FreeBMD

Marriages Mar 1/4 1853   
 
Hannah Hill and William Weyham    Wolverhampton  vol 6b page 446

FreeBMD is where I got all the births and marriage for this family.
http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

If you want to order any of the certificates here is the GRO link. When ordering use the spelling as it appears on FreeBMD.
http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/default.asp

Let us know what the certificate says when you get it. It does sound hopeful with Hannah being a Hill

Brilliant on the certificate info!  ;D

I will go to Wolverhampton Archives and check the registers for St Giles church in Willenhall. I think being as Hannah's family all went there that there is a fair chance they will too.

and i will let you know because the help has been much appreicated. if the hill/wayham connection is what i think it is you have found out where the wayhams ended up... which is great.

Thanks so much.
