Brick Wall - Churchill

Postby madducks23 » Thu Oct 04, 2018 1:49 pm

Hi everyone. I am descended from Charles Churchill (c1771 - c1855) and Elizabeth Molton Holloway (c1771 - c1858) through their daughter Elizabeth (Betsy) Samsom (nee Churchill) I believe that Charles parents were Charles (c1739-c1790) and Johanna (Ann) Shitler (c1733-c1822). All these poeple in Dorset. I would like to get further back from Charles but have hit a dead end. Any help appreciated

There's a baptism for Elizabeth Molton Holloway in Winterborne-Whitchurch, 16.8.1772, parents James and Joan Holloway. And a marriage for Elizabeth Molton Holloway to a Charles Churchill on 25.12.1794, in the same place.
As to a baptism for Charles, there's a Charles Churchill baptised in Lady St Mary, Wareham, 16/1/1771, parents Charles and Joan. It seems to be the only Charles Churchill baptism around the year you've estimated.
If you're right about Charles' father (also Charles) being born abt 1739, there's a baptism for a Charles Churchill in Lady St Mary, Wareham, 7/3/1740, parents George Churchill and Jane.

Is it your Charles Churchill on the 1841 census for Wareham? Aged 70 (born c1771), a baker, living with Betty Churchill, also aged 70.
