Good Evening one and all,

Hope you can help once again.
I am researching a Charles Chalke b1768 in Bower Chalke Wiltshire.
His father is William Chalke.
Then I have hit a wall.
On Genealogical sites,they only list a Christian name for the mother.
There are 2 William Chalkeís listed.
One married Sarah Downes and one married Sarah Joliffe.
Hopefully somebody can help me decipher my issue.
Many thanks as always
