Sarah Glenister - Berkhampstead
« on: Wednesday 21 August 19 20:22 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

I am trying to trace a Sarah Butterfield born c.1803 in Berkhampstead, daughter of Joseph Glenister.

Sarah marries as a widow in 1853 and lists her father as Joseph Glenister, occupation: Sawyer. Her spouse then seems to disappear and she then uses her first husband's surname, Butterfield, from at least 1861-1872.

A marriage between William Butterfield and Sarah Glenister at Ivinghoe, Buckinghamshire in 1821 has a witness named Joseph Glenister who signs his name (likely her father).

Link to Sarah on my tree on Ancestry: https://www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/person/tree/8499087/person/-940510861/facts

I haven't been able to find a Sarah dau. of Joseph Glenister.

Any help appreciated.

Many thanks,

Richard

Sarah married Thomas Spencer born c.1796 in Marylebone in 1853. He was listed as a widower but he disappears by 1861 and then Sarah continues to use the Butterfield surname. No other records match Thomas... hes currently elusive.

When Sarah married in 1821, the witness, Joseph Glenister, signed his name. It would be interesting to see if this matches other documents which might have required the individuals to sign.
