Yes, would also think the 1758 one...

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

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!

Thanks Chris! Good spotting on that 1805 burial. Makes him born c1740.

It looks like the one who died in 1838 is the one born Germany c1758 so might need to get the 1805 will to work out who was the one with the daughters!

Just to clarify, did Joseph Beloudy die in 1805 (date of will) or 1838?

Awesome! :) thanks Quoy and Kucinta.

Looks like the other children may be correct then.

No idea if this is relevant, but Joseph was an organ builder and the marriage bond was for £200 . Ann was a minor, and her father Cornelius Gylfoy was a salesman:

Thanks Christina, Londonbelle and Kucinta! :-) :-) :-)

This adds some credence to my dates for TW snr and Mary Ann.

The confusing part is that TW jnr married a Marianne!

It does seem he and his eldest 2 children (Ellen, I had her in my tree b. c1851, estimated from her age at death, and Wallace, ditto for c1854) were baptised on the same day.

I guess this means it is likely his siblings were not baptised either :-(

So we only have eldest Robert chr. 1813, and then a BIG gap to Thomas in 1828!

It does appear Anna Margaret may be a sister; would be good to find her baptism but it may not exist!

I have just found a tree that gives the following children between Robert & Thos:
Maria b/chr 1816
Sarah b 1818, chr 1821
John b/chr 1819
Emma b/chr 1820
George b/chr 1825
Helen Henrietta b/chr 1827

Can anyone see them in the records please, to verify them? I guess Anna Margaret might fit in the gap between Emma & George...

Odd that TW jnr is shown as a plasterer, later he was a 'Master Music Printer' on certs! But it does all add up. Thanks again.
