Help re William Robinson and daughter Mary Ann in Cambridge
« on: Saturday 14 October 17 10:33 BST (UK) »
I am trying to trace my GGG grandfather and hit a dead end. What I know...
My GG grandfather was born in 1822 to GGG Grand father  William Robinson and Sarah White. They both then dissapear off the records.
However I've just found a William a widower with father named William also marrying a Mary Ann Sheldrick in 1837. The have daughter Mary Ann in 1838' then William dies and his wife remarries a Henry Littlechild. Mary Ann 1838 with family until 1851 then????
The thing that caught my eye was the name Sheldrick as William and 1st wife had daughter Edith who married a Robert Sheldrick (I haven't been able to link the two Sheldrick's as yet)
My unanswered questions are:-
* When was GGG grandfather William born
* Who were his parents (other than William named) in 2nd marriage
* What happened to Mary Ann after 1851

I just find a 1822 birth a bit late for an 1837 marriage, and youve no death record or age at death to corroborate the 1822 birth year.

There is a newspaper article Cambridge Chronicle and Journal 28 March 1840 about the estate of William Robinson the elder of Great Shelford which mentions a David Robinson so that is probably the one age 68.

Are you sure that the 1822 marriage to Sarah White wasn't the same William who married Mary Ann Sheldrick  :-\
