Milliepede,
                  Well you have now supplied me with Daniel's birth-year...1810; however, I have long been given Jane's birth as 21/3/1802, not 1811.  But you have supplied me with a death date, of 1867.  Do you know where the 1811 birth date came from ?

Milliepede,
                  On checking an earlier post from "aginger" to me on 27/9/2011, I was told of a Daniel Ackling (1812-71) was married to Jane Lea (1811-67).
 Therefore, unless otherwise proven, I shall revert to belief that my Daniel, although did die 1871, was married to Jane Wakefield b. 21/3/1802.

Interested to read this as the Elizabeth Ackling that married Benjamin Lay - they were my great great grandparents.

I have Daniel as her father born 1810 died 1871 wife Jane 1811 - 1867 but do not have a surname for her.

Hi
The 1867 death for Jane Ackling in Highworth gives her age as 56 so I guess that is where the birth date of 1811 came from.

Hi

Daniel Ackling and his wife Jane were 'Dissenters' being members of the Highworth Congregational Church, later to be known as the United Reformed Church.

Daniel is listed as being in attendance on 28 Jun 1866 in extracts from the church minutes. (2)

Roll of Members dated 17 Aug 1868... (2)
ACKLING Daniel, ropemaker 1863-blank
ACKLING Jane, 1858-blank, withdrew

On the 29 Sep 1868, it was decided that the church would be dissolved by mutual consent because of a long running rift - Daniel Ackling was 1 of the 15 members who signed their names and constituted the new church. (1)

Roll of Members...
ACKLING Daniel, died Nov 4 1871 (2)

Burial Record...
1871 Nov 4 ACKLING Daniel, matmaker, Inflamation, bur. in Cemetery (2)

Sources:
1.  "Highworth United Reformed Church: A Short History by R A Beck
2.  "Records of Highworth Congregational Church Wiltshire" transcribed by Alfreda Shackleton and indexed by Rosemary Church


Hope this helps.

Regards

Thank you that's most informative.

I'm going to Highworth library later today so will see if they have those two books  ;D
