There is a christening in Bromsgrove, Worcester on 11 June 1775, father William and mother, Jane.  How sure are you of his year of birth? as there is also one in 1773 in Upton Warren, father William and mother, Mary. No sign of a James Walker Taylor.

yes that is the date given by a relation, that has done to him, on his marriage records it stated that James Walker Taylor married on the 9 April 1811 at St Phillips Sydney to Mary Ann Drake, this information is listed on the familysearch site, also that I check on there for this one you mention and it states that he died some time later, so, I thought that you guys mike know more as you have been always  been helpful to me in the past. thank you

Hi
There is this
James Walker Taylor baptised 10 Sep 1775 s of William and Nancy Taylor at Martley Worcestershire.
Also brother William 16.1.1774

Looks like parents married at Clifton on Teme
William Taylor and Nancy Walker 28 Jan 1772
Sister Elizabeth bapt 14 4 1781 at Pershore Holy Cross and brother Edmond 7th Jan 1784 ,Nancy 20.8.1786,George 25.5.1788 ,Henry 16.5.1790,William 9.11.1792,Mary Ann 22.3.1795,Josiah 2.3.1798  and Jane 7.9.1800 possibly .

Looks like Nancy Taylor buried Pershore 1.7.1822 St Andrews age 64 and perhaps William 30.9.1821 age 77 years although there are a lot of William Taylors.

ps there is an apprenticeship for a James Stephens 1796 to William Taylor wheelwright of Pershore.

Hi
I'll have a go .
William Taylor born 1774 must have died by 1792.
Elizabeth Taylor 1781-18.2.1786 Pershore St Andrews
Edmund Taylor 1784-28.10.1804 Pershore St Andrews
George Taylor 1788-20.12.1788 Pershore St Andrews.
Nancy Taylor 1786-17.6.1787 Pershore St Andrews
Henry Taylor 1789-9.5.1792 Pershore St Andrew
So not having a lot of luck with their children.

William Taylor born 1792 a wheelwright stayed at Pershore living on the High st (probably taking over the family business) and marrying Jane born 1797 Pershore.
They have grandchildren living with them but I can't see a marriage or children.It's possible they had a daughter Jane c 1815 who married a Mr Hawkes.
William  died June 1864 age 71 years.

Mary Ann Taylor married George Till butcher of the Shambles Worcester 16.1.1814-George 26.4.1815 St Swithin ,Henry 21.2.1817,Elizabeth 10.5.1818,and Ellen born 10.9.1820 Shambles Worcester baptised at St Swithin. Mary died Dec 1867 age 72 in Worcester.


Josiah Taylor born 1798 buried st Clements Worcester 23.2.1854 butcher who  lived at High St Pershore  and latter at Hallow little Eastbury Farm farmer 1851 census married Eliza born 1797 Pershore- children Nancy Pershore baptism 2nd Jan 1825,Mary and Eliza 14.10.1827 Hylton St Worcester St Clements,Ellen 23.8.1829 same also a butcher,Amelia 27.2.1831,Josiah 16.12.1832, and Edmund 28,8,1834.
After Josiah's death Eliza and the children moved to Birmingham and set up as a butcher there.

It looks like Jane also died as a baby 1800-4.6.1802 St Andrews Pershore.

Sorry it's such a grim tale

Hello
For Nancy Walker ,you could also look for Anne as Nancy is a pet name for Anne and there's one at Eastham that would fit that death age  born c 1758.

Anne Walker d of William and Pheobe Walker 27.9.1759.
brother William 13.12.1756.

I realize it is pushing it for a marriage in 1772 and there is an earlier baptism Ann  Walker d of Joseph Walker 27.9.1750 which would be more realistic also at Eastham .
There is also a Thomas s of Joseph and Elizabeth at Eastham 7.7.1746  and a marriage at Broadway 13.10.1743 to Elizabeth Mills.
I'd be tempted to go with the 1750 one.

For William again there are two possibilities but at Stanford on Teme
William Taylor s of Edward and Jane 5.4.1743
Siblings Susanna 10.2.1741 ,Elizabeth 19.5.1746,Mary 2.10.1748,Anne 15.3.1752,and Jane 8.12.1754.
Perhaps married at Ribbesford  2.2.1737 Edward  to Jane Sprags

William Taylor s of William and Mary Taylor 4.2.1755 with a older brother William 18.3.1754.Other siblings John July 1747, Anne 12.1.1751,Mary 16.10.1757,and Susanna 15.1.1760.
This time the younger man 1755 would fit with the death.
