red mail Martha Dudley married Isaac Timmins July 24, 1781, in Tipton, Staffordshire
They were my 6 great grandparents. Their daughter Rosanna Timmins was born in 1794 and married Walter Williams on September 11, 1814, in Dudley, Staffordshire. Walter was a military man and they moved around a lot. They moved to Wales on his retirement where she died 1875. I cant find a baptism of Martha or Isaac only their marriage in Tipton. Various genealogies have Martha as the daughter of JOSEPH ECCLESHALL DUDLEY and MARY DARBEY and trace these back to various aristocrats and lords; however daughter Rosanna married a lowly private and died in a small terraced house in Monmouthshire shared with numerous boarders. Its hard to reconcile them together. Any help would be greatly appreciated thankyou!

red mail Jonathan Adderley with unknown spouse in Shareshill,Stafford.
Hi there, he had the following children Sarah Adderley 1736, Esther Adderley 1738, Rebecka Adderley 1740, Richard Adderley 1741. All children were baptised in Shareshill and the mother isnt listed. Esther was my 8 great grandmother and married William Sanders on November 10, 1760, in Cannock. Their daughter Ann Sanders (1767) married James Richard Clewley in 1789. Unfortunately there dont seem to be any marriages for him so if anyone could find his marriage that would be great thank you as it doesnt have anything.

red mail James Richard Cluley married Ann Sanders on October 11, 1789, in Cannock, Staffordshire.
Their son was Richard Cluley born in 1801 in Willenhall Staffordshire and who married Sarah Wicks on November 20, 1829, in Bethnal Green, Middlesex. Cant locate a baptism for James Richard Clewley or Cluley or Cluly although have located a James Clewley 17 Jan 1762 Christening Place: Penkridge, Staffordshire, parent listed as John. This town is right next to Cannock, Staffordshire where James Richard married Ann Sanders in 1789. Im just hesitant to add this to my tree because he doesnt have the Richard in his name then and his father isnt called Richard which would make it more convincing.
