Hi Lesley,

I didn't see a baptism for Sophia but I can tell you that when Sophia married her father was recorded as William Rowles and his occupation was Dyer, so it looks like she was William and Mary Ann's daughter.

Kind regards

Chris

Hi Chris

Thanks for the info. I'm still working through the previous details you sent. 

I did find a BMD marriage record on Ancestry for John Adams Rowles and Esther Hopson for the 3rd quarter of 1841 in Newbury District.  That ties up with your idea that he married in the same year as Joseph & Maria.

The 1861 census you mentioned for John and his family which shows Maria Noakes. The transcript has Maria as his mother in law, but on the previous census in 1851 she is listed as Maria Willis, mother of Sarah Moulding (widow).  Not sure where the name Noakes came from, perhaps that was her maiden name.

Ayway it is interesting trying to sort things out.

Kind Regards
Lesley
