This elusive pair I now think were born in, or at least baptised in, Yattendon Berks. George birth Yattendon in 1780? William Birth possibly in Lambourn in 1780. Maybe there was a late baptism for one of them. Can anyone help? I thinke their father is Thomas born
1753 and Sarah Bedmead (Bidmead?)1757 both of Lambourn.
George - I have spent many hours looking for him and am hoping I now have something a little more concrete! And maybe someone out there can help.

Mother/Father or George: Thomas Wise and Sarah

ALSO FOUND:

Thomas Wise born 1749 Wickham with Parents John Wise and Elizabeth - you would have to chase this up to prove a connection.

Firstly my apologies for calling you Dave - I don't know where that came from!

This is where my interest lies:

Thomas Wise b. 1759 Yattendon
Sarah Bedmead b. 1757 Yattendon
Married 27 Jul. 1778 Yattendon

Their children:

Sarah b.1778 Yattendon
GEORGE b.1780 do
John b.1781 do
WILLIAM b.1783 do

It appears that GEORGE and WILLIAM could have married sisters ELIZABETH and MARTHA Kentfield.
ELIZABETH b.1776 Bap. Bray
MARTHA b.1780 Bap. Bray

BUT:
Martha and William married 19 Oct. 1801 in Bray Berkshire
and
Elizabeth and George married 20 Oct. 1801 in Winkfield Berkshire

This seems a little strange to me. And so to my real interest GEORGE who I believe is my Great Grandfather. I can follow George and Elizabeth's children down to me. So any help will be much appreciated, DON,
Thank you for your interest.

That's as far as I can go with this. Suggest your next step is to examine Parish records for the appropriate geography.
