Shropshire Lookup Requests / Re: LYSONS Westbury (Horsebridge)
« on: Thursday 21 July 11 15:16 BST (UK)  »
The IGI has a marriage of Francis Lysons and Jane Thomas 20th July 1803 in Westbury. It looks promising. We are off to Shrewsbury RO next month to try to verify this and dig further but if you can help again it will be much appreciated. If only they could make their mind up about whether they are Lysons or Lycett !

Thank you Claire. I believe that the Lysons in Eaton Constantine are a separate (though probably related) group. There are census records of an Edward in Westbury and one in EC simultaneously.   ::)

Thank you Keyboard 86. I cannot believe that we missed the widowed mother in 1851; the very next entry on the page.    :-[   It all fits well, with a death of Francis Lycett registered in Atcham in 1848.    :)

Best wishes


Shropshire Lookup Requests / LYSONS Westbury (Horsebridge)

Can anyone provide me with information about the birth of Edward Lysons. Working on census data he was born in Westbury in 1813 +/-
He married (in 1842) Mary Ann Price who was born in either Buttington (Montgomeryshire) (1851 census) or Alberbury (1881 census)

Many of their family moved to Manchester including my g-grandmother (their daughter) Emma (b 1861, Westbury) and we have info about them there, but we have nothing about Edward's birth, his parents or anything further back. Any info will be gratefully received.

Thank you

Susan  :)

I have a Mary Ann Price apparently born in two different places in 1822  !  :'(

1851 census gives birthplace as Buttington, Montgomeryshire
1881 census gives birthplace as Alberbury, Shropshire
Strange that these two places figure in your query. Could it be due to boundary changes?

Mary Ann married Edward Lysons of Westbury in 1842 but I cannot find the marriage record; just the registration at Atcham.

Best wishes

John & Susan  :)
