Thomas Parry Heighway of Clun
« on: Thursday 20 February 14 04:32 GMT (UK) »
Hi there,

I am curious to find out if anyone is able to tell me anything about Thomas Parry Heighway b. 1811 in Clun, Shropshire, England. I have been able to locate him in 1851, 1871, and 1881 census and he lived at Cockford Hall for a number of those censuses.

I have been able to located children: Thomas F. Heighway, William Henry Heighway, Mary Heighway, Elizabeth Heighway, and Richard Heighway but have not been able to find reference to a wife anywhere or any parents for that matter.

My connection is through his son William who married a Mary, last name unknown, and had children: Thomas Parry, Elizabeth Mary, and Martha Sophia. They eventually wound up in the Aymestry, Herefordshire area before Elizabeth married Richard Neighbour and immigrated to Canada. Not having a lot of luck going forward on those left in ENG either.

Would appreciate meeting up with any family or interested parties as I have lots of info to share on all the family here in Canada!

Hi it is interesting therefore re no wife, that not only on the 1851 census, but also on the 1841 HO107/919/ 1/28 / 16 he has in the household as housekeeper a Martha Francis!

PS in the case of the 1851, I note all the children have a middle initial "F" I think all the births re Freebmd will be surname Frances/Francis possibly?

Hi again, Thomas Parry Heighway was not born in Clun, he resided there, here is his baptism:-

Thomas Parry Heighway baptised 1st October 1810 Llandinam, Montgomeryshire Father Thomas Heighway of Clunn and wife Mary

His parents married 23rd September 1808 Llandinam Mary was a Mary Tilsley ( she had a middle name which could possibly be something like Tobias)??
I have found a possibe baptism for Mary as Mary Sobieski or Tobieski Tilsley 15th April 1789 Aberhafesp, Montgomeryshire Father John occ Reverend Mother Mary (John I believe was the Vicar of Lllandinam)

Also how/where the Parry middle name originated:-

Baptism John Parry Tilsley 28th July 1791 St Llonio. Llandinam Father John occ Reverend Mother Mary
