Hannah Stockham
« on: Wednesday 24 January 18 18:14 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for ancestors of Hannah Stockham (1792?) who married 1 December 1813 in Corsham,Wiltshire to John Law. His parents are George Law and Sarah Alsop. I have no data for her on my tree.

I have found information online which leads from a father named Stockham with wife Sophia apparently marrying 1784. It has extensive ancestry leading from the unamed Stockham to grand parents Richard Stockham and Sarah Ball.

Note: I had Stockman from another source.

I have the marriage banns but cannot see fathers name.

Going through my research I have found and these match to online:

1851:

Chippenham

John Law    60
Hannah Law    59
Sarah Law    24
Benjamin Law    20

1841:

Chippenham

John Law    50
Hannah Law    45
George Law    20
Sarah Law    15
Benjn Law    12
Ann Chard    10

Making her birth year around 1792 or 1796? As it varied. Maybe it is 1782 baptism you found? Could they of made such a large difference in year on census? Maybe the family found had another Ann closer to 1792 or 1796?

My ancestry for this in Corsham starts at:

James Eli Law / Eli James Lawes
23 February 1840 Age: 0
Corsham, Wiltshire, England.

Son of James Law / Lawes (1816 Corsham, Wiltshire, England) and Sophia Shepherd (1814 Corsham, Wiltshire, England).

James Law (1816) was son of the original posted couple (John Law and Hannah Stockman).

(Sophia Shepherd was daughter of Henry Shepherd/Sheppard and Sarah? I saw a tree with different parents.)

Posting this to make sure it is correct. I will add siblings later today to this post if that helps.
