|Pickett - (Chiddingfold - Surrey)
I am searching for information about the Pickett, aka Piggott, families who were living in the Haslemere, Chiddingfold and possibly even Hambledon areas from before 1700 through to the mid 1800's at least. My interest concerns the ancestors of Jane Pickett b 1813 Haslemere who "married" William Collins and settled in Chelsea. I think her parents were John Pickett b 1785 Haslemere and Jane Ellis b 1780 Chiddingfold. I believe his parents were John Pickett b 1760 Chiddingfold and Ann ?. I believe her parents were Thomas Ellis b 1840 Charlwood and Jane? John's parents were probably Abraham Pickett and Elizabeth Matthew. I am looking for any input from anyone - I have several dead ends here - I have lots of stuff but much of it mainly conjecture. I will share anything I have with anyone interested. Thank you.
Family Surnames: Pickett, Piggott, Ellis, Mathews

|Seeking details John Rhodes Wilson and family (b abt 1854) - (Clapham - Surrey)
Would like to find out about John Rhodes Wilson. I can only say his wife was Mary MONNERY of the Monnerys of Southwark (b Lambeth 02/03/1854) and they had a daughter Irene M(ary?) WILSON, born Brixton abt 1879 and a son Frank H WILSON, born abt 1882,Clapham.
They were apparently married 22 Dec 1877 in St Barnabas, South Kennington, Surrey but I cannot confirm this.
He must have died sometime between 1881-2 and 1891 as Mary is a widow in the latter census. I cannot find his birth nor a definite entry in the 1881 census (Mary is in her father's house with children both in 1881 and 1891).
Daughter Irene Mary married Frederick William SMITH(a book keeper born in Stratford/Avon abt 1879)possibly in Brentford district Dec qtr 1898 and had ason Victor A SMITH.
Son Frank H was an estate agent in 1901.
