William Drewery b. 1826 Boston.
« on: Friday 13 November 09 15:01 GMT (UK) »
Hi, this is my first venture onto RootsChat.   
I was amazed to see William Drewery b. 1826 Boston and his wife Reservoir [nee Smith] b. 1823 on your Gypsy and Travellers Site.    They were my great great grandparents.   
A kind person had actually found their marriage date and their eldest son Robert's birth in Wymondham in 1841.
Reservoir died in 1859 in Melton Mowbray.
I have researched from 1861 but have never been able to find anything out prior to that date.   I also noticed on one your sites that the census records for Wymondham in 1841 are missing.
Another puzzle is if Robert Drewery's birth is on bmd why not their marriage?
Is there anyone who can help to fill in more details/background please.

Nieve,

Welcome to Rootschat.

I'm sorry I can't help you with your request. However, it looks to me as if you have posted your query on the "completed requests" board - so a lot of people won't look at it as they will think your questions have been answered.

A moderator may spot this and move the message for you or you could try posting again on the general Leicestershire board.

It took me ages to get my head around the different boards - I had to ask for them to be moved to the correct board several times.  :)

Hi Nieve and Brie

Thanks for your message - I've moved the topic to where the experts live!

I see you have a similar post on the Travellers' board, so helpers should check there too, in order to avoid duplication of effort.

Kind regards, Arranroots ;)

Here's the earlier thread http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,362531.0.html

I have my own DRURY/DREWRY ancestor from the Boston area.  His will (1797) suggests that he was of fixed abode-

Last Will and Testament of Robert DRURY of Algarkirk, Grazier...

First I give to my daughter Mary EVERITT wife of Ely EVERITT the sum of 10. I also give to her the feather bed and beding of the new chamber Bed.

I also give to my granddaughter Esther EVERITT the sum of 10 to be paid when she attains the age of 21 years.

To my daughter Elizabeth DRURY the sum of 20. I also give to my daughter Elizabeth the bed that she sleeps in, a chest her cloaths is in and half a dozen silver spoons marked "E FAND", her mother's gold rings and one year's board allowed to my executrix.

And lastly all my ready money etc to my daughter Esther PHILIPS wife of Robert PHILIPS who now lives with me and appoint her sole executrix.

Here's the marriage
Marriages Sep 1841 
DREWEY    William        Melton Mowbray    15   261   
SMITH    Resovoir         Melton Mowbray    15   261

If he was the WD that Catone found in 1841 http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,362531.msg2403502.html#msg2403502

Perhaps he was bap 8 April 1822 Boston, son of William and Mary
Their children included
1815 Susannah
1819 Hannah
1822 William
1825 Anne Selina

They were possibly William DRURY and Mary WYAN who married at Boston 26 Dec 1815.

Many thanks to Brie, Arranroots and Geoff-E for your speedy help and interest.   
Geoff-E  -  I don't think that your Drewery's are the same family - they seem too wealthy!!!.    I will do further investigation into the William/Mary marriage [Will's parents]   especially as Will the younger also had a daughter called Selina.   That could have been coincidence.   Nieve.

...  son of William and Mary

They were possibly William DRURY and Mary WYAN who married at Boston 26 Dec 1815.

Possible burial
1 May 1835, William DRURY (44)

The bad news is that Mary appears in 1851 as Owner of houses born Horbling

so would seem to have been Mary WYAN 1781 Horbling.

To Geoff-E.   Thanks for your interest.   I have sent for the marriage cert and will have to be patient.   I feel such a fool as I tried every possible spelling of the name Drewery but didn't try Drewey.   Life is a learning process!   Nieve
