William Chivers of the Cox House Farm, Rowde
« on: Saturday 14 November 20 11:06 GMT (UK) »
I have a brickwall and hope that a Rootschatter can help break it down.

In 1841 William Chivers and his wife Elizabeth lived at the Cox House Farm, Rowde, Wiltshire. When William died 30 Dec 1866 they where still living there.

I am seeking their marriage ca 1825  and any children, I have a William born ca 1826, and Mary Ann born ca 1839 but have no evidence that this is correct.

William Chivers was baptized 20 Oct 1799, at St Mathew, Rowde.

What was Elizabeth's maiden name; she was born ca 1805 in Rowde?

Any help gratefully appreciated.
