Davies and Hill families, Wellington in Shropshire, 1700's
« on: Saturday 18 February 17 17:26 GMT (UK) »
Hello all,

I would really appreciate some help tracing these two lines in Shropshire.
Thomas DAVIES married Ann HILL at Wellington in Shropshire on 23rd August 1784.
They had many children, all baptized at Wellington.
- Martha bap 1785
- Thomas bap 1786
- Levi bap 1788
- Elisabeth bap 1792
- Evan bap 1796
- Richard bap 1798
- Robert bap 1801
- William bap 1802
- Henry bap 1803
- Sarah bap 1805
- Sarah bap 1806
- James bap 1807
- John bap 1808

I'm having a struggle however tracing Thomas Davies and Ann Hill's families - especially since they're such common names.
I hoped that the unusual names of some of their children (especially Evan and Levi) would help me finding their families (e.g. if relations had the same names), but I've had no luck so far.

Many thanks for any help and/or advice,
Holly

The marriage doesn't give anything away. The witnesses were George Sutton and John Plimer.

I can only find one baptism for Ann Hill - 2 March 1766 Wellington parents Thomas and Margaret

There are a few for Thomas Davies

All Wellington

1760 parents Richard and Martha
1761 parents Joseph and Mary
1765 parents Thomas and Sarah
1766 parents William and Catherine

Hope this may be of some help.
