Where's Richard (Philpot)?
« on: Tuesday 13 April 10 17:04 BST (UK) »
Posted a similar thing on Philpot(t) elsewhere but I am not sure if we are still in Shropshire.
I have an ancestor Benjamin Philpot b. 27 May 1792 in Pontesbury to Richard and Catherine and that is about as far as I can get.
I can find no further info on Richard or Catherine. I emailed Shropshire reg office who could find no record for Pontesbury but said it would be too involved to search all the Shropshire parishes with a 10 min freebie. I can not find him or her on IGI (as a marriage) and I haven't found a Richard that lived in Pontesbury or a Catherine. Can't find them on freeREG or on An-----y. All pointers welcome.

I'm  afraid I don't have any info on your Richard. I have a later Philpot, Charles born between 1819and 1825 presumably in Shropshire. He was a grocer in Shrewsbury in 1850s/60s and a tobbaconist in Worcester in 1870s. His wife (Charlotte Powell) was recorded as a widow in 1891. Interestingly  there appears to have been another Charles Philpot, grocer, who died in Pontesford in 1895 just to confuse matters. Pontesford is near Pontesbury. Perhaps your Richard is from there?

While you're waiting for someone to come up with a better idea you might like to think about this. In each case the father's name is Richard.

Sarah 6 Sept 1789. Pontesbury. Mother Christabella
William 10 April 1791. Pontesbury. Mother Christabella
Benjamin 27 May 1792. Pontesbury. Mother Catherine
William 1 April 1795. Westbury. Mother Catherina
John 12 Nov 1797. Westbury. Mother Christabella
Elizabeth 11April 1800. Pontesbury. Mother Christabella

Were Christabella and Catherine one and the same?

Marriage. Richard Philpot/Christabella Plimmer. 11 Dec 1788 Holy Cross and St Giles, Shrewsbury
