William Wise b. 1810

Postby Cadman » Thu Sep 27, 2018 4:50 pm

Hello everyone,

This is my first post.

I am looking for some help finding the parents of a William Wise who was born 1810 in Saltford, Somerset. He married Elizabeth Phillipa Goulstone in 1835 in Bristol. William is my 3 x Great Grandfather. He worked as a Brass Battery worker in Keyston, Somerset.

His parents do not appear on any document associated with his marriage. I have lots of information about Phillipa Goulstone and with this appeared in the WDYTYA magazine in the Eureka article.

I'm really struggling with this, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Andy

That is from MF 1470971, which has Somerset BT's on it, and more specifically is from item 21, which is BT's for the parish of Elm.
Other sources have that Elm baptism as 16 June 1805, and the father's name as Thomas.
Marriage seems to be at Elm, 26 March 1805, Thomas Wise, of Frome, and Nancy Chivers.

Doesn't your man say in the census returns that he was born in Bath?
There was a baptism at Widcombe in February 1811 of a William Wise to James + Mary. But also a burial there of a William Wise in February 1812. No more info.
