As you belong to Ancestry, which has the Will of Benjamin MOORE - dated 1845 - listing his children, their wifes and grandchildren.... it would be useful to check this information against the baptisms, marriages on the Forest of Dean website.

For example,

Benjamin, mentions his Elder Son, John - and his wife Maria - who are on the 1841 Census with Benjamin

MOORE

Benjamin - 85
John - 45 - quarryman
Mary - 35 Ind
Benjamin - 15
Mary - 13
Timothy - 10
Jane - 9
William - 6
George - 3
James - 4months

?

Marriage of Samuel MOORE - 4 June 1827 to Maria HATTON

However,

Baptism at Abenhjall - 1 June 1828

John MOORE (parents: Samuel (John) in brackets and Maria


? Do they go by the name of Samuel or John


---

Talks about SIMMONDS and Betty his wife (his daughter) - christened 1789

etc etc


---

There will be family names, which pass through each generation.

---

Benjamin's first Wife Jane - appears to have been buried at Abenhall - 26 March 1802

and in 1805, Benjamine MOORE & Sarah PRIDE - have a daughter Ann - christened at Abenhall - 1805 - transript says by Sarah PRIDE

Thomas TEAGUE otherwise JONES - married to his daughter Mary

So cross checking the Will against the Forest of Dean records would be useful.
