Thanks for that.

I thought the gap between Elizabeth and Margaret was rather long; Jane fits in there nicely, albeit, sadly, only briefly.

With all those daughters, Israel must have felt like another Henry VIII !

Thanks again.

Great, thanks.

I'd have put money on one of Israel's daughters having been given her mother's name.

I still can't find the marriage of Israel and Mary or the baptism of Israel. I've also had a look for the incidence of O.T. names in the STEVENS family to see if I can find any siblings for Israel, but nothing stands out - no Abraham or Isaac etc.

Many thanks.

Do you think they were trying to raise their own netball team?

I believe that Martha qualifies as an O.T. name, but I'm afraid that she's in the wrong generation to lead us to Israel's origins.
