View Full Version : Richard and Elizabeth Taylor

I am needing help on establishing this couple whose daughter Rosetta married my ggggrandfather William Pond Masters.
Rosetta was born in 1808 at St. Peters, Shaftsbury, Dorset and christened on March 13th, 1808. They had at least four children:
Sam born 1835 Donhead
Eliza born August 14th, 1837 Donhead
Eli born June 8th, 1841 Donhead
Sarah born 1846 Donhead
Any help would be appreciated. Bishops transcripts online? 1801 census??

perhaps you already have this marriage from the Dorset opc site; Shaftesbury, St Peters; 1805, 21 April Richard Taylor and Elizabeth King.
I could find only one other child, besides Rosetta, christened at St Peters; 1815, 28 Jul William Taylor, son of Richard and Elizabeth.
There is a possible birth for Elizabeth, same parish; 1776, 28 April, Betty King, daughter of John King. Two sons, John and William King were christened on the same day. Then Hannah, Rachael and Mary King christened together six years later; 1782 26 Dec,daughters of John King.

I just came across that information on the marriage last night after I posted.
It is strange when one bangs his head on a wall again and again and run out of ideas, then allof a sudden out of nowhere you stumble across information that is bang on or so tantilizing you want it to be true or cannot confirm and need help to think it thru!
I had looked for more siblings but did not find any, thanks.
That information coming from the same church on John Kings children is tantilizing. I did not see that yesterday when I was going over the transcripts. I am sure glad someone was generous of heart to volunteer this information onto the internet!
Thanks for so much help everybody!

Hi, I came across this information at St. Peters, Shaftsbury Church in Dorset and am curious as to the last name 'Pond'.
My ancestor is Williiam has a middle name of 'Pond'. I have not found his birth parents yet (maybe William and Ann). I am trying to find a connection.
Can anybody shed some light on this?
