This is a very complicated story - and bear in mind that only 3 of the children in my previous posting are related to me. However, I usually research siblings and parents of spouses and sometimes get carried away.

William Briscoe 1825 son of William Briscoe 1795 Kilkenny, Ireland and Johanna Aylward 1803 Newmarket, Ireland. William had 8 siblings - but I am not going to list them. William Briscoe 1825's first marriage was on 4 Nov 1846 to Sophia Mountjoy 1823 (baptised age 4)they had 8 children. Sophia died 30 Jun 1861. He then married her older sister Mary Ann Mountjoy 1817 on 21 Oct 1861 (Grass Growing & Feet springs to mind). No children, but she had previously been married to John Thomas 1827 on 7 Jun 1853, 2 children Mirah 1858 and Elizabeth Sophia Mountjoy 1855. I don't know what happened to Mirah.

William Briscoe 1795 was the son of Henry Briscoe 1763 Kilkenny, Ireland and Jayne Hayes. As we are now a very long and convoluted way away from the 3 illegitimate children of Elizabeth Sophia Mountjoy 1855, you may not be surprised to learn that I have not researched further back.
