Samuel Simkins or Simpkins born c.1780
« on: Tuesday 26 February 19 11:29 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I am sorry to ask for another look up but am having little luck with Ancestry and Family Search with my family, their records don't seem to be on there but some lovely people on here have been able to help me with finding records and I wondered if I might prevail on your kindness again please?

Mary and Samuel Simpkins/Simkins seem to have had 4 children in the Brewood area (Mary 1807, Elizabeth 1811, Thomas 1814 and John 1817).
I think (but am still investigating) that Mary married William Austin as a widow in 1825 at Brewood and I think he dies in 1827 and is buried in Bilsdon. She then married as a widow to James Purchase 4 May 1827 and is with him in the 1841 (with John Whittingham grandson - son of her daughter Mary).

Samuel is elusive though as is Mary's marriage to him.
Mary was born around 1874 from the 1841 census and I think she dies in 1851 (PURCHASE, MARY       66  GRO Reference: 1851  S Quarter in PENKRIDGE  Volume 17  Page 69). From this I am guessing Samuel was born around 1780 and married around 1806 assuming Mary was their first child. If Mary who married William Austin is relevant to me then I am guessing Simon died around 1817 to 1825.

Please could someone look to see if there is a birth, marriage and death relevant to Simon (I am trying to find evidence of him and Mary's maiden name).

Thanks for reading through this slightly lengthy post.

Best wishes,
Emma
