Lilleshall - LILLIAS JONES
« on: Thursday 28 July 05 18:58 BST (UK) »
Hello,

Has anyone come across the first name LILLIAS in their research?  I'm sure it can't be that common a name :-)

I am trying to find a marriage entry for the parents of:

SAMUEL JONES    Christening:  27 MAR 1767   Lilleshall, Shropshire, England

  Father:  SAMUEL JONES    Mother:  LILLIAS    C032722

I thought with a name like LILLIAS it might be easy - but so far I can't find any marriage entries for a Samuel and Lillias...all help GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Fiona.

Hi Fiona

Have you seen the name written in the records yourself or just a transcription?  I wondered whether it could be Lillian which has been badly written.

Hi Fiona,

Thanks for the bit about my website - think that deserves a reward!! ;D ;D

Have you any idea where else besides Lilleshall they might have got married - or do I just look there for the marriage when I am at Shrewsbury!!  ;D

Sign my guestbook and you might even be entitled to another lookup  ;D ;D

Hi Fiona

Sorry, this doesn't help you find the marriage either but I've googled the name Lillias and found several women with the name.  One of the name meaning sites says it's a Scottish form of Lillian.

Hope Keith can help  you with the marriage.

Hi Fiona,

Hmmm....interesting.  No I hadn't noticed that entry.  It seems there were a couple of siblings:

LILLY LIAS JONES - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Christening: 31 JUL 1796 Lilleshall, Shropshire, England
ELANOR JONES - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Christening: 13 JAN 1799 Lilleshall, Shropshire, England 
SARAH JONES - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Christening: 29 MAR 1801 Lilleshall, Shropshire, England

I am going to add these to my family tree maker file - and one day a connection may well just appear :o

The spelling of Elanor is also interesting - that has also cropped up in with "my" Jones family and I thought it was perhaps a misspelling but now I'm not so sure. 8)

Hello Keith....an offer of a lookup.......for that I will make entries in your guest book every day ;D

For the marriage - I do think it will have been at Lilleshall as that was where Samuel was christened......but I don't know if he had and older siblings so the date for the marriage could be any time before 1767.

SAMUEL JONES    Male     
    Christening:  27 MAR 1767   Lilleshall, Shropshire, England
  Father:  SAMUEL JONES    Mother:  LILLIAS     
 C032722

Thanks,

Fiona.

Hi Fiona,

I couldn't find your marriage in Lilleshall.  :'( :'(

I looked from 1762 to 1770 - but couldn't SEE yours - although of course some were nearly blank and others unreadable - that's the problem with old Parish Records.

Strange as it my seem I only found 1 Jones in that period:

John Jones to Elizabeth Tebb in 1766

Sorry - did try

Cheers
