Still searching for William and Elizabeth Hutchins/Hutchings
Posted by Karina Bailey on 18/4/2021, 2:20 pm
The only proof positive I have is the Baptism record of my 3x Grt Grandfather John Hutchins/Hutchings. He was baptised in Combe Raleigh on the 11th Nov 1811 - parents names William Hutchins and Elizabeth. William is shown as a sojourner - John states he was born in Combe Raleigh on the census returns. |
I also believe that William was still alive in Feb 1839 as he is shown as Father (Labourer) on John's marriage certificate to Mary Ann Ireland in the parish church of St Thomas... am I right in thinking that if he were deceased it would say so?
I've been searching since 2009, so I maybe need a fresh pair of eyes.
The only possible I've found s a marriage between William Hutchins and Elizabeth Hurwood in Burlescombe - 23/10/1803 - The notes on the parish entry state William Sojourner.
