Ashley family
« on: Saturday 27 August 16 18:03 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to compile a family tree for the Ashley family.  I've used FreeBDM to try and piece it together, however I'm not sure whether this is correct?  Some places I've also gone further than normal.  Any help would be appreciated.

1.   John Ashley (farmer) born 1781 at Ramsbury, Wiltshire, married on 8 November 1804 at Farringdon, Berkshire to Sarah Newman, born 1777 and baptised 18 April 1777.
They had ? children, John Ashley born 1807.

2.   John Ashley born 1807 at Faringdon, Berkshire (think he spent his later years with Priscilla Clark, born 1808 at Farringdon, Berkshire).  He married Ann.  They married December 1837 at Faringdon.
They had ? children, John Ashley born 1841.

3.   John Ashley born 1841 at Ramsbury, Wiltshire.  He was a farrier, currier and farmer.  Married Martha Ann Phelps (gloveress) at St Luke’s, Finsbury, London on 29 August 1863.  She died 1879, Hungerford, aged 49.  Born 1831 at Yeoville.  (Her Father’s name was Thomas Phelps, born 10 November 1807 and baptized 25 December 1807 at Yeovil Independent Church, Office Clerk / glove maker / book publisher / commercial traveler.  His Father was Thomas Phelps who married Ann Ellis at Yeovil St John on 4 September 1803.  Wife Ann Phelps (née Herring), gloveress born Bradford Abbas, Dorsetshire.  They married Yeovil St John 24 December 1827).  Children Elizabeth Sherring Phelps born 18 March 1828; Martha Ann Phelps born 1831, Mary Phelps (gloveress) born 1833; Thomas Phelps, born 1836 (solicitor’s general clerk); Ann Phelps 1843).
They had six children; John Ashley born 1865 at London, Middlesex; William Ashley born 1867 at London, Middlesex; Ann Ashley, born 1869 at Islington, Middlesex; Martha Phelps Ashley, born 1871 at Islington, Middlesex; Priscilla Ashley, born 1873 at Ramsbury; George P Ashley, born 1878 at Ramsbury.

4.   Martha Phelps Ashley was born in London in 1871 and christened 31/03/1871 at Ramsbury, Wiltshire.  She was a housekeeper.  She died unmarried at St Joseph’s Nursing Home, Boars Hill, Sunningwell, Berkshire on 07/08/1956
She had one daughter, Florence Mary Hill Ashley, born 13/02/1907.  She was supposedly a Foundling?  Obviously not possible, as the mother was known.  However she was given up, but no information available as to how.

5.   Florence Mary Hill Ashley (Father unknown) was born 13/02/1907.  Died ?/09/1989 at Gravesend, Kent, England.  Married Charles George Henry Behm / Benn 1930.  He was born 29/07/1903.  They divorced and both of them re-married.

Thanks Crisane.  That was also part of my "research".

Is there perhaps anyone that could confirm the family tree?  Was the correct path taken?

Thanks
