Hmm so that is the Clerkenwell one... I am thinking the one born c1740 might have been too old to be Mary's father and perhaps he is more likely the other one b. c1758...very confusing!

Yes, would also think the 1758 one...

(wonder if the Will would give the odd answer. lol)

From Bob

Hope these facts help.

When Joseph Beloudy (1740 - 1805) married Anna Gilfoy on 11th or 16th Sept 1770 he had to pay a £200 bond, a considerable amount even in those days!! This was probably because Anna was a minor - he was 29/30 at the time - and he had to pay to show good faith and testify that he wasn't already married. In other words she must have been at least 10 maybe 12 years younger than him at marriage.

Therefore it is entirely probable that Mary Ann Beloudy b.1795 (married Thomas Wallace Prosser in 1812) was the daughter of Joseph and Anna, who would have been 43/45 in 1795 and still of child-bearing age.

Also Joseph had another daughter Elizabeth b.1786 who married Edward Ryan on 6th July 1800. She was pregnant by Ryan, who had been taken on by Beloudy in 1796 - indentured 15th April 1796 - as an apprentice. In February 1800 Beloudy legally rescinded the apprenticeship because of Ryan's infidelity with his 14 year old daughter and tried to end their relationship believing Ryan incapable of maintaining Elizabeth financially. Despite his opposition Elizabeth and Edward still married 5 months later.
