Looking at the Will of John WITTS of Hawksbury - he was a Blacksmith.

From the Forest of Dean records

Mary MARSH married Daniel ALWAYS at Hawkesbury - 21 April 1690 - by Licence.


Will see what else turns up!

Wills are an invaluable way of looking for families (providing one exists) - Use the Gloucestershire Genelogical Database - to see what exists if you don't have access to Ancestry (which is usually free at your local library).

Ancestry has transcribed the Will of Giles JENKINS (Mason) 1743 of Hawkesbury - he talks about Robert JENKINS(ON) leasing.

Mentions his wife Sarah and two daughter: Jane & Sarah - talks about if these daughter's children die etc - but doesn't say these two girls are married.

There is also a Will of Giles JENKINS (Yeoman) of Hawkesbury - a couple of years after the 1743 Will.


Baptism at Hawksbury - 7 August 1701 - Sarah JONKINS (on Ancestry) - father Giles

and at Churchdown St Bartholmew St Andrew - GRLES - 12 October 1702 - parents Giles & Sarah

---

Sarah JENKINS married Robert COLINS - 30 November 1724, at Hawkesbury


---

As Giles was a Mason - he would have travelled around.

? this could possibly be Jane's father.
