Parents of Elizabeth James about 1798 (General)

by Gill @, Friday, August 18, 2017, 06:34 (404 days ago)

Elizabeth married James Wintle 14 Sept.1823 in Newlands unfortunately parents names were not on the marriage records . I have found two baptisms for an Elizabeth James in Newlands May 20 1799 Jepha and Mary living - Forest and Nov 25 1799 with parents Richard and Sarah living Bream.
In the census she has her place of birth as West Dean and Whitecroft.

Does anyone have any suggestions of ways to move on.

Many thanks Gill

List your census information to help other forum members and children's names.

? on the 1861 census, there appears to be a Joseph JAMES aged 22 lodging with them from Llanover, Monmouthshire

On the 1841 census, Glos, Whitecroft, Dean Forest

There appears to be a Son George aged 19 - assume born before Elizabeth JAMES/James WINTLE's marriage in 1823

Hi Thanks very good suggestions. So easy to get stuck in one way of thinking. I will approach from other directions as I am sure the answer is there somewhere. So many Adams around the area plus intermarriages between my families. Yeovil had not come onto my radar but I will pursue the witness to marriages as baptisms have become a brick wall at present.
If and when I sort out information or answers I will post them with more background information.

Many thanks

Elizabeth born to Jeptha and Mary has grandparents Richard James born 1727, Shop house, near Sling FOD and Sarah and they are great grandparents to Elizabeth born to Richard and Sarah. I know that is not much help in deciding which one she belongs to though sorry

Thanks any information helps to solve the puzzle plus I has not come across Sling before and see it is very close to where the Wintle, Adam and Price family lived in the 1700/1800's.

Thank you Gill
