William Taylor of Nuneaton.
« on: Friday 06 July 18 21:07 BST (UK) »
I'm researching my 6th grt grandfather and trying to determine who his parents are, It seems he also has a previous marriage but I'm not quite sure if it is my William of 2 William Taylors.

William Taylor marries Joanna Large 25 May 1797 Nuneaton.
William is a Soldier and Batchelor aged 40 born around 1757 and Joanna is a Spinster and is 40 born around 1757.
On William's military record he says his occupation was a Ribbon Weaver and he is from Nuneaton.

I have his baptism as Jun 1756 Nuneaton son of William Taylor and Ann Walker.

But there seems to be a previous marriage which looks to be my William aswell but he is listed as a Batchelor on his marriage to Joanna?

William Taylor marries Sarah Jellife 10 Dec 1775 Nuneaton.
William is listed as a Ribbon Weaver.
This William and Sarah seem to have the Following children -
Ann Taylor bapt 1778 Nuneaton
William Taylor bapt 1783 Nuneaton
There a no more children to William and Sarah after 1783.
According to Williams military record he served 30 Years which means he must have enlisted aged 16.
Did my William marry Sarah and have this 2 Children whilst away on leave then went away for over 10 years and came back and marry Joanna?
Sarah doesnt seem to die before 1798?

He only has one Child with Joanna, My 5th grt grandfather John Large Taylor bapt Aug 1798 Nuneaton.
