The above link should take you to the Wiltshire OPC site for Foxley baptisms. Aaron was born to Joseph and Jane not Mary. They had 9 children, none of them called Martha.

The only Martha Vizor baptism I can find is the one mentioned in the previous post in Luckington.

There was a Joseph and Mary having children baptised in Luckington, and a Joseph and Jane having children baptised in Foxley, but the dates overlap. In other words, it doesn't appear to be the same Joseph with different wives.

It seems quite possible that the two Josephs were related, but you'll need to go further back to find the connection.

The Vizors are very remotely connected to my wife's family from that area, and she briefly looked into them - about 25 years ago! (NB - the surname is also found as Vizard, Vizar etc.)

There is a possibility that the two Josephs were cousins, both being descended from Arthur and Hannah Vizor of Easton Grey. However, this is just a possibility, not an established fact. Arthur of Easton Grey left a will, proved 1700, Archdeaconry of Wiltshire.

Research is inevitably a bit speculative, as registers are missing for some years, BTs are also patchy, and there aren't many wills to fill the gaps.
