Dorset / Re: John Loder of Long Critchel
« on: Tuesday 10 August 21 15:36 BST (UK)  »
Several online trees claim that his father was Ambrose Loder from Broad Chalke, just across the border into Wiltshire, but I can't see any evidence for this apart from the fact that are only about twelve miles apart.

Presumably you have seen the interesting settlement papers from 1831 giving quite a detailed account of James's (b1797) life; as well as his prison papers from 1817-9.

Patrick (b 15 Sep 1867) was still living in Wales as a miner in 1939 but was buried in Portland on 7 Dec 1949. He had been living at 66 Chiswell, Portland.

There are 38 trees on Ancestry listing his children but I don't know how accurate they are.

You'll need to give us a bit more detail re dates and names; Welsh surnames are too common otherwise. There are people living on Portland who were born in Merthyr T but none matching the surnames you gave. The closest is probably a Ball in 1901 who came from Cardiff.

Examples include:
1861 - Brooks
1881 - Hughes, Kayes
1891 - Holland
1901- Cagney, Williams, Ralph, Edwards

That James was a carpenter might prove useful as a James Hibberd, wheelwright of Witchampton, left a will in 1779. Might he be the father of the James in the first post? His will only mentions his wife Mary.

A James Hibberd married Jane Scott in Horton in 1804 (he may have married Betty Budden in 1802 in Horton although the signatures are slightly different). In 1810 he, Jane and their children John and Amelia (b 1808) were removed to Fisherton Anger nr Salisbury, Wiltshire. A Jane H died there in 1811 aged 36.

Thanks for replying. That seems the logical position, although he clearly changed what he thought to be his major occupation.

Thanks very much for the replies and translations.

As I suspected there is very little there that didn't appear in the will, although I didn't know that Mary was older than seven or that William Wild lived in Twickenham at the time. It's possible that may turn out to be useful. It's all grist to the mill.

As to why a farmer should become a schoolmaster is beyond me.

If it helps, this was also attached; but I think it only refers to Mary Wild (the minor), her father and the testator.
