Looking for Sarah Bull/Ball?
« on: Wednesday 18 July 18 06:25 BST (UK) »
Hi
Iím trying to find parents for my 5th grt grandmother Sarah Bull.

She marries Edward Hawkins 10 Apr 1803 All Saints Leicester. Listed of the Parish.

In 1841 her birthdate is rounded to 1782 Leicestershire. I believe she is the Sarah Hawkins living in St Margaretís 1851 with the Philips family and birthdate given is 1785 Hinckley.

Sarah dies 1860 aged 75, which gives her a birthdate of around 1785.

I canít seem to find a baptism for her fitting Hinckley. I think Bull might also be Ball given the close pronunciation.

I did have her as bapt 1786 Leicester, daughter of Robert and Margaret Bull but I have found a burial shortly after for Sarah daughter of Robert Bull so that rules that out.
The only other one is a Sarah Ball bapt Dec 1786 Leicester all saints. Daughter of John Ball and Catherine Cotes I think.

Bradbury (Sedgeley, Bilston, Warrington)

I wonder if she may be a child of Joseph Bull from Hinckley and Ann Spires of Burbage who married in Burbage in 1780,as I cannot see a child of theirs until John Bull born in Hinckley in 1787....
