View Full Version : Thomas Smith of Ashley

29-12-2004, 1:25 PM
My knowledge of the geography of Wiltshire is nil. A recently discovered forbear of my late husband is Thomas Smith, born c1821 in Ashley. I have found it on a road map as a tiny dot on the A4 between Bath and Chippenham, but was it a parish in its own right or part of a larger parish, if so, which ??

Thomas Smith is in DBY Alfreton in 1881 as a General Dealer, with a wife Elizabeth born in Northamptonshire. His daughter Harriet, born in Alfreton, married as her third husband one Willie Joseph Angelo Wisternoff - they were my husband's grandparents.

Any help most gratefully accepted.
