red mail Elizabeth Knowel (Nowell, Newell, Noel?)
She is named as a sister in the 1754 will of John Moores, a Newfoundland Planter. The will is in the Wimborne Peculiar Court records. I am interested in any connections her family might have had with the Moores in Wimborne as there were later connections between the Moores and the Noel/Newells in Newfoundland. Pete

red mail HALL, Anna Maria- Wimborne, Bere Regis or where?
A bastardy bond was issued in Wimborne in 1822 with Anna Maria Hall shown as the mother. She appears in the 1841 census as Ann Hall aged 40 with two further illegitimate sons. The 1851 census shows Ann aged 57 born Wimborne but 1861 shows Ann 67 born Bere Regis. I have so far not found her baptism as Anna Maria but there are several Ann's as possibles. She died in 1869 and her death certificate shows her as Mary Hall aged 76. I would like to trace her baptism to follow the line back.
