I am seeking details of the wife of George Stock. George was born and died in Purleigh Essex and was married to a Mary. I think that Mary may have been a Challis as this name has been used in several generations of the Stock family.

Elizabeth Bewton c1807
I believe that one of my ancestors was an Elizabeth Bewton c1807 from the Purleigh region. She married Edward Tilbrook c1800 and they lived and brought their family up in Runwell, Essex. Can anyone help me with any info on this unusual surname.
My g/g grandparents, William Raven PLAYLE and Susannah his wife whose maiden name was PERRY, lived at Purleigh from at least the late 1830s to the 1870s. William was a wheelwright, and was christened at Roxwell on 9 Feb 1811, the son of Thomas and Martha Playle. Susannah was christened at Margaret Roding on 19 March 1809, the daughter of John and Ann Perry. There is no trace of their marriage in the post 1837 BMD indeces so I assume it was pre 1 July 1837. However I can't find their marriage at Purleigh or either of their home parishes, or any of the obvious adjoining ones, nor is it in Boyd or Pallot's indeces, so I'd be delighted if anyone could point me to it . Their daughter Ann Eliza Playle who was my great grandmother, was born in July 1838 and I can't find any older children so I'm guessing that they were married in the mid-1830s.
red mail Edward Barker c1785-1859?
I am looking for the parents and siblings of my 3rd great-grandfather Edward Barker, born c1785 in Purleigh. He married Mary, and had 5 children (that I know of) including Sarah Ann Barker c1834 (my 2nd great-grandmother). Edward was living at Chelmsford Rd in the 1841 & 1851 Census and probably died in 1859.
