Marriage from 1722
« on: Sunday 29 July 18 11:53 BST (UK) »
Hello,

Can anyone give me details of the parishes of William Witts and Isabella Hall, who married in Chipping Sodbury in 1722?

I'd appreciate any help!

Adam

The tree on Ancestry gives Isabella's father as William HALL of Hawkesbury  1705 (wife Mary and daughter Isabella + Mary ) - his occupation : COPPER assume COOPER


Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire Marriage Allegations

9 March 1722 - by Licence

William WITTS - Groom's residence: Hawksbury's Upton

Isabella HALL - residence - not stated


Submitted by Mr Shellard : 2 May 1722



---

I think all the marriage at Chipping Sodbury including William WITTS in 1722 - have a LIC after the names, so far I've checked the next name to them ie. Simon SMITH and his Licence has been transcribed on the Forest of Dean Records.

Gloucestershire Marriage Allegations have a number of WITTS - assume this is relevant =


Again by Licence:

19 October 1757

William BALY aged 22, Batchelor, Clock maker, Hawksbury

Isabella WITTS - over 21, Spinster, residence Hawsbury

Sworn before P COLE  to marry at Hawsbury



It is best just to search by surname, as place names are spelt differently and sometimes incomplete

Mary WITTS was christened in Hawkesbury - in 1702 - father Edward


There is also on the Forest of Dean website marriage by Licence
 11 May 1719 at Hawkesbury the marriage of John STINCHCOMBE to Mary HALL


Just reading the Will on Ancestry of Mary STINCHCOMB of Hawkesbury Upton 1759 - well written and talks about her grand-daughter - Elizabeth WITTS - Grandson William WITTS and daughter Mary SMITH...

Can you see any details of the marriage of John Witts and Sarah Marsh in Hawkesbury in 1689? I have the date but I can't find a christening for John in that parish.

Edit: nor one for Sarah Marsh :(

I'll have a look. 

Mary HALL (sister of Isabella, married Benjamin SMITH 31 January 1730) - but doesn't appear to have any children.  Just reading her Will 1765 and talks about her mother, Mary STINCHCOMBE and grandchildren of Mary STINCHOMBE, i.e..  Robert, William, Thomas etc etc WITTS
