George Gray was born about 1779 died 1845 at Bradford on Avon his wife Priscilla born about 1781 Seend Cleeve Wilts
died 1854 Bradford On Avon
Their eldest daughter Rebecca Gray born 1798 Winterborn (e
their other children all born at Murhill Winsley
Isaac born 1805 married Charlotte Munday
Eliza born 1807
Virtue born 1809 married Isaac Bullock
Harriet born 1817
George born 1819
If any one can help me find out anything about this family or if they are related I would love to hear from them.
Kind regards Christine

The marriage of George GRAY and Priscilla BURTON can be found via FreeREG or the Bath Hundred Yahoo group.

They were married 30th April 1798 at St Swithin's Walcot, Bath.

In fact, she was christened Priscilla BOURTON/BORTON in Clyffe Pypard on 20th November 1778, parents Edward BOURTON and Ann ("Nanny" TEAGLE according to Nimrod).

The BOURTON/BORTON's go back several generations before that in the Winterbourne Bassett PRs.

Hence the references in the 1851 census to Priscilla (Gray) being born in "Cleeve" (an ancient name for Clyffe Pypard) and her daughter Rebecca being born in "Winterbourne" (she was christened in Winterbourne Bassett in 1798).

By the way, I am looking at the 1841 census page for George, Priscilla and Rebecca just now and there is no reference to "Waterhouse" on that page.
Is it on another page?

The 1841 tithe list for Limpley Stoke gives George (and presumably Priscilla and Rebecca)'s address as "Stoke Gate House and Bridge" while the 1851 census shows Priscilla and Rebecca living at Bridge Tollhouse, Limpley Stoke.  Priscilla's occupation is given as Toll Gate Keeper.

I visited the Limpley Stoke bridge last year and saw the house.  It's tiny!
