Descendents of William Harward Watts
« on: Monday 19 September 16 11:03 BST (UK) »
William Harward Watts was  born at Tysoe Warwickshire in 1747 and is understood to have had 5 children: Elizabeth born 1798; William 1801; Edmund 1803; Mary 1805; Fanny 1808.

I have information on the descendants  of Edmund (who was my ancestor) and have found William in the 1841-1861 censuses.  I would appreciate information on any  of the other offspring - such as whether or not they married and had children and when they died.

I am a bit surprised that he would be 51 when Elizabeth was born and 61 when Fanny was born.
Children of a 2nd or 3rd Marriage for him?

Or are you missing a generation?

Thanks Trish for the comment.  You may well be right - the information I had was in "jottings" prepared by my mother's cousin - since deceased.  She also indicated that "William Watts was a freeholder at Tysoe in 1774.  As I have  no idea where the information came from so I have no way  of checking. - It is quite possible there was more that one "William Watt" and the 1747 birthdate and 1774 freeholding relate  to William Harward Watts father - but that is just conjecture.

Thanks Lisa

That corrects the information I had which was "Elizabeth born 1798 at Milton Oxfordshire. Married John Hemmings of Warwick and died at Radway in 1819."  Obviously 1819 was the date of her marriage not her death.  The information i had was from "jottings" made by my mother's cousin - since deceased - and I had no way of checking as no sources were given.
