Posnett and Mary Oilet c1802
« on: Wednesday 18 October 17 16:39 BST (UK) »
I have a birth cert of Eliza Posnett b1850 in London.  Her parents are William Posnett and Mary (formally Oilet).

I found Mary Oilet b 1802 in Wisbech and that ties up with a census of 1851

However I cant find a marriage of Posnett and Oilet.  William Posnett had other children , seems to be with Mary Ann Gallant.

Do you think Oilet was written incorrectly? Did she die and he married again?

Any help you can give is welcomed - this is doing my head in!

James Posnett b1839/40 was my 2 x gg father, born Newton (Manchester).

So his mum was Oilet too?

Then I dont think William Posnett is the correct one at all.
