Catherine Hopley
« on: Sunday 13 December 20 13:58 GMT (UK) »
Hi Folks

I am, and have been for some time, trying to find out the parents of Catherine Hopley or Hobley.
She married Richard Wilson in Nantwich by banns on 23rd January, 1712.  They had ten children born although not all survived.  Richard died in 1740 in Nantwich.  I cannot find a death for her or a baptism anywhere. 
Is she on anyone else's tree?

The marriage for this couple on Family Search states 1711 not 1712. The only baptism I could find, although not in Cheshire was for a Katherine Hopley baptised 13/6/1686 Middlesex. Father Thomas, Mother Elizabeth. This would have made her 25 when she married if it was her.
Regards.

Hi
Thank you for the information. I suppose because she was born in Middlesex doesn't mean she stayed there for long.
I have searched the surrounding area for her and the entry in the marriages for Nantwich definitely says Hopley although I could have been persuaded it might have been Hobley (accents do vary things a bit).
Thank you very much for taking the time to look for me.

Hi
I am afraid the child Catherine Hopley died and was buried 25th March 1694.
So I'll have to rethink this one. 
Thank you for trying

Richard died in 1740 in Nantwich.

Possibly adding to your problems (sorry!), going back a few pages of the register  (image 282)

Mothers names are not given at that time on the Nantwich baptisms
We have
Sarah, bap 12 Sep 1703, dau: of Richard Wilson, Shoemaker
Langham, 8 July 1705, son of Richard Wilson, Shoemaker
Thomas, 19 Oct 1707, ditto
Mary, 15 Nov 1710, dau of Richard Wilson
Thomas, 9 Feb 1713/14, son of Richard Wilson

A burial, 9 April 1709, Thomas, son of Richard Wilson, Cobler
BT
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-DTY3-X6T

This very long run of baptisms of children of Richard Wilson at Nantwich goes on to 13 Dec 1727
Hannah, dau: of Richard Wilson, Cobler
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-67M7-SMZ

Perhaps replacing the Hannah who was baptized in 1725 and died.
It is quite a long way back to the Mary Held marriage, but there seems to be no burial of a Mary before 1739, other than a daughter of a John Wilson in 1706.

No daughter Catherine baptized to Richard in Nantwich
No burial of Catherine, or even a possible widow Wilson, in Nantwich

There were some other Hopley marriages in Nantwich. Perhaps Catherine married a Richard Wilson who was from elsewhere? :-\
Lot's to think about.

A double baptism at Marbury, not far away, 20 January 1715/16
Alice & Mary twinns ye first born of Richard Wilson of Cross ? Hill junior
& of Catherine his wife
BT
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-DT5Q-K51

Could the twins parents be the couple who married at Nantwich a few years earlier? And thus the Hopley marriage is unconnected to the Richard Wilson baptisms in Nantwich?

Possible for Mary?
Baptism at Nantwich, 1 March 1782/3
Mary, Dau: of Edward Held
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-67M7-WBG

Would make her about 19 on marriage to Richard Wilson, and 44 when the second Hannah was baptized in 1727.

Any thoughts from doolittle?
