Timberscombe - Robert WILLIAMS b Abt 1792
« on: Saturday 19 January 19 16:07 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
Looking for the maiden name of Elizabeth (b. abt 1791 Wootton Courtney) who married Robert WILLIAMS  (b. abt 1792 Exton) who appear in the 1851 and 1861 censuses for Timberscombe

I can find the marriage of Robert WILLIAMS to Elizabeth COURT in Timberscombe 7 April 1817 but the register says they were both from "this parish" so I am not sure if this is the correct pair.

There are also some other marriages in neighbouring parishes of Robert Williams to other Elizabeths

Many thanks
Jim Clark

Do they have any children born after 1837?
If they do, check on the Gro website for the motherís maiden name.

Welcome to rootschat

'Of this parish' only refers to them living there around the time of their marriage and is not necessarily where they were born.

Thank you for your welcomes and prompt responses.

Robert and Elizabeth WILLIAMS only have one child in the 1841, 1851 and 1861 censuses, also called Robert born 1835.  I cannot find any other children.

I did find the marriage of a Robert Williams to Elizabeth Court of Wootton Courtney but how can I be sure this is the correct couple when there were other marriages of Robert Williams to Elizabeths in nearby parishes at about the same time?
