Marriage Joseph Bonner to Abigail

Postby katebenn » Wed Jan 09, 2019 12:19 pm

I'm searching for the marriage of Joseph Bonner b1702 & died 1787 in Nuneaton, Warks to a Abigail b c1700 who died in 1769 in Nuneaton; bur 24 Dec 1769 in Nuneaton Parish Church w/o Joseph Bonner.

Any ideas?

From records on familysearch.org, it looks as if Joseph, born c1702, and Abigail, whose birth you put at about 1700, had children from 1747 (Daniel) to 1761 (William). But that doesn't seem very likely. It would mean that Abigail was already in her forties when having her first child, and 60-odd when she had William. Either Abigail's birth year is wrong, or - outside possibility - Joseph married more than one Abigail.

Hi,
This is exactly what I thought & the info I have at present. More searching required!

Hi,
I've done some further thinking & Abigail must have been born c1725 - 30 to have had hildren in 1750s & 1760s.
Have not found any suitable birth as yet - Nuneaton, Coventry, Warwickshire or perhaps Hinckley Leics?
Any thoughts?
Kate

It's all very frustrating. Joseph's age isn't really a factor, but in theory, if the youngest child, who seems to be Daniel, was born the same year he was baptised - 1747 - his mother is likely to have been born 1720's/30's. Unfortunately, there are several Abigail births in the midlands during those years, but so far, I haven't found a marriage for an Abigail to Joseph Bonner. Will widen the search - unless you have any other Bonner family info that might help?

This explains why register just says 'children of Joseph Bonner' as mother is dead!
As said, Abigail must have been born in 1720s or 1730s - but as yet not found any likely matches
Bonner surname for Joseph of course can be spelt various ways - Bonna; Bunner etc
