Hi Margaret,

If you don't mind me asking again about some of the Reynolds family, i was just wondering if you wouldn't mind seeing if William Reynolds who married Elizabeth Chappell in 1718 had a 2nd marriage to a Susannah Bathe?

Kind Regards


Margaret Report 30 Sep 2008 13:41


There are children being baptised at the same time to William Reynolds and Elizabeth and also to William Reynolds and Susannah, so probably not the same William Reynolds... Do you want the baptisms of the children from Piddington? it would make things more clear for you, if I did both sets of parents. Margaret.

Thomas Franklin of Westbury Buckinghamshire who made his mark, a servant, married in Mixbury Mary Gibbs who made her mark, a spinster, of this parish. by Banns
16/8/1789 witnesses John Fenemore Ann Bellam

They had

Thomas Franklin baptised 10/1/1802 Mixbury.

Who married in Mixbury

Thomas Franklin who made his mark, of Westbury Buckinghamshire married Catharine Blinco who made her mark of this parish 26/12/1814 witnesses Thomas Morris and Henry Blinco they married by Banns.
Catharine was baptised 21/4/1793 Mixbury daughter of William and Elizabeth Blinco.

So it appears that the Thomas Franklin you are looking for that appears on the 1841 census married to Catharine was baptised 101/1802 Mixbury but his parish of settlement through his father who was a servant was Westbury Buckinghamshire.

Hope this is of interest Margaret.
