Thank you for your posting, regarding the name Eseyleth. |
I have looked at Welsh names and see, as you suggested, that there are similarities. Someone has also suggested looking at Irish names too.
Though baptised Ursula and this is the name entered on her marriage certificate (1808 in Chudleigh), she actually signed her name as Eseyleth.
I wonder how she became aware of it or heard it- perhaps she read it?
