Parish Marriages help...
« on: Monday 30 April 18 14:28 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I am struggling to find the right Mary ???? Who married William Hillier in Wilts approx 1780-1799.
Iíve search and there are a lot of them but which one is mine Iíve no idea.
Iíve looked at marriage records and Banns to see if there is any more information on the bride like
Fathers name etc, where she came from but Iím not getting anywhere.
George Hillier b. 1791 was there son and Mary had a daughter in 1799 - baseborn so where William went Iím not sure.
There are so many Marys married to a William Hillier I donít know which one is mine and Iím really struggling.
I just wondered if anyone had any ideas how I can find the correct Mary.

Thanks. Wendy

Iím not sure sorry. Thereís 2/3 George Hilliers all born around July - Dec 1791. His birth entry is Wilcot but apart from that I donít know. Iím so confused with the limited details on different entries I donít know which one is the correct one. I don5 know anything about his fathers occupation I know Iíve seen a William who was a Collar maker and a William who was a carpenter but Iíve know idea which is the right one.

George is on the 1841 census in Honey Street Woodborough Wilts. He is with his young son William, a Mary Bishop and another man whoís name I canít recall at the moment. His younger son Thomas was a few doors down with the Carpal family - I think with a nursing mother as Georgeís wife (Kezia)  died 3 wks after Thomasís birth.
George died in 1847 aged 57yrs at the Devizes workhouse ( I have his death certificate) the two young boys were left there after his death.
George married Kezia Chandler in 1836 in Woodborough. He was also previously married to an Ann Pearce from Stanton St Bernard in 1824 but sadly she died in 1829. Canít find any children to Ann. There is another family within the same area with the same names etc so itís quite confusing and also trying not to confuse the two family members.

Thank you for your time and help.

Thank you for the explanation. 

Baptism 1 Aug 1791 at Wilcot
George Hillier
Father William
Mother Mary
Abode -West Stowel

The Mary that had baseborn child Sarah was 'single' according to the transcript.  Possibly the Mary Hillier who was baptised at Wilcot 17 Sep 1775 parents John & Mary of West Stowell  :-\

Thank you for that.

I did wonder if William had left or died thatís why Sarah was Ďbaseborní and Mary was single.

Sorry I donít know the areas but are Wilcot, Overton and West Stowell near each other or within each other if you know what I mean?

I really want to try and go back further on this family but with the information being so limited Iím really struggling. Iíve been trying for over 3 yrs to find Maryís surname before marriage and also where she and William were born. It doesnít help either with there being so many with the same names in the same area.  ::)
