In 1861 she is in the same place, with the same family, this time on FMP as Mary Lennington - RG09/1699/87/25

The wife, Eliza Lawrence, is her daughter. The youngest child is Louisa, and this is her birth:

She is in Mangotsfield with a family named Lawrence, and gives her PoB as Bincombe, Dorset.
Yes, I think it was TG that listed them as Sillington in 1841 as well, just a misread on the transcription. The Ancestry tree shows them coming from Bincombe. It is a fair distance away from the Bristol area but it might be worth me making contact to see if they have any reasons for the move. Just not quite able to reach the power button on the computer yet, too low for my back right now . Thank goodness for clever phones!!!

Good find.

The wife, Elizabeth Lawrence is from the same place, daughter perhaps?

EDIT ( just seen the above post...)

So it's a good chance it's Joseph and Mary Pashen's marriage in 1800 in Bincombe then?

He's on a militia list 1796 with a James as farmers sons and a William Lillington, Farmer.

Baptised 1772 at Osmington to William and Rachel Lillington.

Married 1771 Osmington William to Rachel Wilshere.

1773 Bincombe, Mary and Margeret twins to William and Elizabeth Pashen

As far as the marriage is concerned, my memory tells me that the "other" tree has the marriage banns in May 1800 down at Bincombe. Also Elizabeth married a John Lawrence but I am fairly certain that the marriage was in Bristol. Still seems a very long way away.

The 1800 register image is the Banns. The dates are all in April, the marriage is down as 9 May at Bincombe.

Nearly got it right with the Banns from memory.
I stopped using the matching Tree hints (separate thread about that !). But this tree came up from a photo that had been found rather than the tree itself. Will get in touch with the owner once I am back up and running as it is looking hopeful

I'm the same as you, use online trees as hints and find the proof yourself. There are so many just copied and if one is wrong, then they all are.
Plus it's more fun proving it yourself.

Some people take a lot of trouble and get it right, it must annoy them when someone just takes their work and posts it.

I keep my complete tree on my computer, mainly for privacy, but will share to anyone with a valid interest a relevent part.

Yep, couldn't agree more. I will always make "First Contact" and introduce myself but as you say, always check the source and provenance before adding it. I made too many mistakes early days and still regret what I ended up with.
