Planks in Wiltshire
« on: Sunday 08 August 21 10:58 BST (UK) »
John Stevens married Elsie Plank in Preshute in 1905.  She is aged 18, father Walter.
She appears as Elsie Rose Stevens in 1911.   Ernest George Plank is with them, possible birth in 1894 mmn Plank.

Elsie Plank and Walter John Plank are baptised in Manningford Bruce on March 12th 1890, both with parents Walter and Lydia.
Walter John Plank may have been born in Pewsey in 1889 with mmn Plank.

Lydia Plank married Walter Plank in Devizes in 1888, bachelor and spinster.

Elsie Rose Stevens (and husband) are on 1939 with her birth as 07/03/1887

I have just seen a birth for a Rose Plank in Devizes in Jun qr 1887 - which I cannot find on GRO.

In 1891 the family Plank appear to be under Sheppard - Walter and Lydia Sheppard both age 24 living in Manningford Bohun, Pewsey with Elsie and Walter John.

Walter, father and son, plus more children back to Plank in 1901. Lydia with another daughter with her mother in 1901 as Plank.  No Elsie.

I would really like a birth for Elsie (Rose).  Suggestions for why (?) Sheppard - but not really of interest for what I want.  Also Elsie in 1901 if possible, but I am finding I have been typing Plant half the time, so I have made things more difficult, not less.

I have sorted out some of my problems since I began typing this, but the background always helps.

Thank-you,  Pat

Thank-you.

Should have stuck to Plants, as that was how Ancestry had her.

Freebmd has birth q2 1887 of a Rose PLANK Devizes 5a 110 but I cannot locate the same in the GRO index so do not know the motherís maiden name.

1891 census has the family as SHEPPARD living in Manningford Bohun. daur Elsie is age 4 born in Market Lavington which is within the Devizes District.

Walter Plank married Lydia Plank on 14 Aug 1888 at Market Lavington. His father was Joseph Plank - blacksmith, her father was Christopher Plank labourer.  Sounds like walter and Lydia might be related

Joseph Plank - blacksmith - residence Upavon married Arabella Potter at Charlton near Rundall on 31 Oct 1863. Witnesses were Stephen and Maria Sheppard. Might have something to do with the Sheppard connection.

In 1861, Joseph Plank is the stepson of Jacob Sheppard, Stephen and Maria look like his half siblings. So it looks like he used his step father's surname sometimes
