    Unhappy HILLIER brickwall - Again ......

    Hello,

    Not been on here for a long time just couldn't find anything at all so had a break. Hope someone will be able to help me with this though...

    Trying to find the birth or baptism of GEORGE HILLIER - lived in WOODBOROUGH - wife KEZIAH died 1841 after giving birth to Thomas ( my GG grandad) - GEORGE then ended up in Devizes workhouse with his 2 young sons WILLIAM & THOMAS but he died with affirmation of the chest in 1847/8 I have the cert from the Wiltshire history centre. I cannot find where or when GEORGE was actually born or who his parents were. I did contact NIMROD who were very helpful and gave me 1791 birth in WILCOT with parents WILLIAM & MARY of WEST STOWELL but I just don't want to take this as definate and end up following the wrong family down the line. GEORGE's death cert states he was approx 52/3 when he died but that would make his birth round about 1796...

    I just can't seem to find any birth/baptism for GEORGE or where WILLIAM & MARY came from - their births or marriage info. NIMROD did say however the WILLIAM & MARY they found were living in WILCOT but I'm just not sure.

    Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.

    Thankyou

    If a birth cert. states approx. & there
    was no-one there to be definite. You have several years to play with. He may have not looked his age at death. Children probably wouldn't know.

    Thanks for that Jan, having read past posts, now eyes very tired. did you see william in 1861 a Royal Marine visiting the Topp Family in Colerne?

    Perhaps you can look up his Army history & find a contact in his Family to assist?

    Maybe the threads could be joined to help in follow through.
