Meanwhile -

CHARLES SHAPLEY OLIVER 1862

Charles worked in the Tannery in Bedminster.
He married Ellen Bennett  in Bristol in 1883

These are their children:
Charles Bennett Oliver  Q4. 1884
Ernest Bennett Oliver  Q1. 1887
Elizabeth Eliza Oliver  Q2. 1890
Hannah Rose Oliver  Q3. 1891
Ellen Oliver  Q4. 1892
Florence Beatrice Oliver  Q2. 1895
George Emmanuel Oliver Q1. 1898
Albert William Oliver Q3. 1900

There is a registration in 1888 in Bedminster for a George Bennett Oliver.
He's not at home in 1891 and I can't see a death reg;  the naming of a younger George suggests he might have died  :-\    Or maybe the name George Bennett Oliver is just a huge co-incidence  ???


Robert - his father - was still living in Bedminster in 1901, by then he was Foreman at the Tannery.
Robert died Q2. 1908 Bristol  Vo. 6a. Pg. 6
Elizabeth died Q3. 1904  Bristol  Vol. 6a  Pg. 7

I'm not sure what you need on William b. 1770.  I presume you have seen the IGI listings for the Oliver family in the 1700's in Silverton?  There are extracted baptisms and marriages which take you back to 1690 -ish.
