Wiltshire / Re: Cullis family of Calne - Who was Walter's father?
« on: Monday 19 October 20 22:32 BST (UK)  »
Thanks for your thoughts, Capetown. I didn’t know about the 1712 Browne will so that’s really useful.

I noticed quite a few entries in the Calne parish registers are unreadable so I suspect Walter’s baptism was in there at some point! I agree, I do think Thomas was more likely. Would you say the 1655 marriage for Thomas Cullis and Mary Barnes is perhaps too early for a couple baptising children in 1663 and 1672?

I think I can rule out Richard as his father... I’ve found a 1705 will for Richard in which he mentions his wife Elizabeth and his children, Edmund, Katherine and Elizabeth. No Walter.

The burial doesn’t give him an age unfortunately but his wife was baptised in 1679, it may have been a similar time for Walter.

Wiltshire / Cullis family of Calne - Who was Walter's father?
« on: Sunday 18 October 20 14:30 BST (UK)  »
The Cullis family don't appear in my tree until the 1760s when Sarah Cullis married Adam Williams at Bremhill. There are certain families in my tree who interest me more than others and the Cullis' are an interesting bunch (to me anyway  ;D).

I've managed to trace Sarah's line back to her grandfather Walter Cullis of Calne. He married Mary Browne (b.1679) on 19 June 1706 at Devizes and I believe he was the same Walter Cullis who was buried at Calne on 4 January 1737. There is no record (so far) of Walter's baptism in the Calne parish registers, I've browsed the original images from 1674 to 1690 and there's no trace.

I suspect he may have been the son of either Richard, John or Thomas Cullis who married the following women:

Thomas m. Mary Barnes 1655 at Calne
Richard m. Elizabeth Ball at Calne on 29 June 1664
John Cullis m. Magdalene Audry? in June 1684 at Calne

I've also found a list of Wiltshire soldiers wounded in the English Civil War from GenFair that reads: "Richard Cullis of Studley, Calne, served under Lord General Ruthen in company of Captain Roger Banninge. Lost both of his eyes with a shot. 40s per year plus 10s".

I'm leaning towards either Thomas or John as Walter's father as he had sons by those names. Any suggestions about where to look next?  ???

What about Elizabeth's parents? Could the children be with maternal grandparents?

I saw that but it implies Elizabeth's maiden name is Mitchell as she is sister to unmarried Mary Mitchell & Henry Mitchell.

SAMUEL DAVIS, 1850 D QUARTER, BURY Lancashire, Mother's Maiden Surname: MITCHELL

Yes, looks like it's the wrong family  ::)

The children in the 1733 will are:

“George Moore of London, Cutler”

“Mary Moore”

“Hannah Biddle”

“Katherine Phillips”

“Samuel Moore”

So if Catherine and Hannah were under married names, I’m assuming Mary wasn’t married by this point.

Thanks jimnix, I’ve asked around and others think it could be “Daphne Moore” too.

I got your message about searching for a marriage between Hannah Moore and a Mr Biddle but no luck so far.
