red mail Talboys of Dursley
Can anyone please help? William Charles (Smith) Talboys born 1856 Dursley. Does any one know where William's middle name of Smith comes from? I am a cousin to the Talboys family I am sure on my Smith side and now have a DNA match to confirm this. My connection is James and Ann Smith. James 1793-1866 was a Tailor who lived in Wooton Under Edge for most of his life. In James's later years up to his death he became a Rope Maker living in Parsonage Street Dursley. James and Ann had a daughter Jane born 1834 who married into a Dursley Rope making family George Jabez Harding. Their other children were Elizabeth born Wooton 1819, Ann born 1817 Gloucester William born 1820 Gloucester who also became a Tailor living in Cheltenham for most of his life and Sarah born Wooton in 1827. Any help would be most appreciated.
red mail James Smith (Tailor)
James Smith (Tailor/Ropemaker) and possibly a Corkcutter was born in Wooton Under Edge Gloucestershire in 1793 the son of James and Catherine Smith. James married Ann Lucas at St, Marys Wooton under edge on the 29th May 1814. There were possibly five children from this marriage. Elizabeth 1819 Sarah 1827 and Jane 1834. Jane married George Jabez Harding a Dursley Ropemaker in 1856 at St. Michaels Gloucester. Sarah possibly married Alfred Glover at Chedworth in 1852. My problem is that I have two other children who I feel are also the children of James and Ann, Ann bapt 1817 St. John the Baptist Gloucester and William bapt 1820 also at St. Johns. Their parents are described at James Smith (Corkcutter} and Ann mother.
