Elizabeth is down as Lidington at her marriage in 1830

Baptised in 1802 at Bincombe. I can't find any baptisms after that one, so I assume that's the starting date for the move to Bristol until Henry was born. abt 1811 ( unless we find more children of course.)

Nothing to do with your family, but noticed this on the page before Elizabeths baptism. An interesting article about the soldiers... https://www.weymouth-dorset.co.uk/bincombe.html

It always amazes me what you trip over when you have a rummage rather than just looking at what you went looking for.

Yes, it always pays to "have a look over the wall" and see what's happening at the neighbours...

Seems like a lot was going off around that time, a whole army camped around Bincombe and the King at Weymouth.

Probably not a bad reason to head North to the safety of Bristol ???

If they are camped on your fields, might even have been forced off... worth keeping a note and doing a bit of looking round. There's a lot in the newspapers.

One of my ancestors born 1804 went from Hanmer in Wales to Manchester around 1820, but he was a shoemaker so went for the trade I suppose. There was a lot of movement to towns and citys. Just that he's still a farmer, I wonder where the land was?

Henry was baptised at St John, Bedminster, 17 jun 1810 as Henry Lillegton, born 27 May.

So looks like moved between 1802 and 1810.


The Tithe map for Bedminster was 1841, so nothing there.

Just a note to keep in mind.

There is a Rachel baptised at Dorchester 22 jul 1804 to a Joseph and Mary Lillington and an Ann baptised at Long Burton 20 nov 1806 to a Joseph and Mary Lillington.

Rachel is Josephs mothers name. You already have an Elizabeth 1802 named after Marys mother.

Both places are on the road to Bristol..

There is a Rachel Lillington died age 23 buried at Winterbourne, just up from Bristol, born 1804.

Elizabeths husband John Lawrence is from Winterbourne, were they sisters and working there when Elizabeth met John?

Ann is a servant at Portishead 1841, 1851,1861 and 1871. to a Goolden family
