William Ellwood c1700. Dinton, Bucks.
« on: Wednesday 18 April 18 13:33 BST (UK) »
William Ellwood dies in Wendover, but is buried in Dinton, 22 Feb 1852.  'Gent of Wendover Dean'. (no age given at burial).

He married Ann Hitchcock in 1727 in Dinton. (William Ellwood otp of Wendover, Ann Hitchcock otp.)

Is there a baptism to be found in Dinton please.  Not found in Wendover.

Thanks.

Steve. :)

EDIT: The only death that makes sense, is one in Sculcoates. 1852. aged 71.  So a birth year of 1781.  But why Sculcoates.??

If he died Sculcoates 1852 he cannot have been born c1700 unless he's in the Guinness Book of Records!

I can't find a birth or a death, all I can find is the 1727 marriage.

Something is really wrong here.  This man is very elusive.

There is a possible sighting in a Criminal record in 1803, age is 24, a Baker.  Aquitted.  Birth Location, Buckinghamshire. Trial held in Middlesex.

There is also a possible sighting in Penrith Jail, in 1841. b.1781, n.b.i.c. as an Inmate.

His Will says, 'of Wendover Dean', and mentions his children, but not his wife.  Perhaps I need to find her death or burial.

I'm not sure where to go next, as this man cannot be found without any certainty, with what I already have.  ???

Gent is one thing, the reality could be another.

I can find the following baptisms fin Wendover for children with parents William and Ann
William 1728
Mary 1729*
Frances 1730
James 1733
Ann 1735-1735*
Edward 1738*
Edward 1740*

Those marked * give father's occupation as Husbandman.

Are these the children mentioned in the Will?

I am as daft as a bag of frogs. ::) :-[

Wrong Will,  and I misread the year by 100 years.   1752 not 1852.

He was bit old to have died in 1852.. ;D

I think this thread is a bit of pup.  Sorry about that.  I'll come back later, when I'm had a lay down. ;D

I can't see a baptism in Dinton.

Any idea from the will if this was his first marriage? Could he have been baptised as early as 8 June 1684 in nearby Chesham, son of Thomas & Martha? There appears to be a few Ellwoods being baptised there around that time.

If he died in 1752, this would still only have made him c 68 years old.

There's a baptism in Chesham for a Thomas Ellwood s/o William & Frances 28 Jan 1714. However, the only possible marriage I can find for these two is way up there in Carlisle in 1713!! Statistically possible as a first marriage, but is it likely? What did this man do for a living? Anything that would make him travel a lot - perhaps I'm just having one of my flights of fancy!!

HELP!!!

 BATHSHEBA BOOTHROYD bn c. 1802 W. Yorks.

Baptism nowhere to be found. Possibly in a nonconformist church near ALMONDBURY or HUDDERSFIELD.
