red mail William Ellen and Dinah Bowles
William Ellen 1775-1808 married Dinah Bowles 1775-1804 in Shaftesbury in 1795. Dinah's father was called Henry and was from Fovant or Tisbury. I would appreciate any information on the Bowles family and any connection to those living in Gillingham. I have also found a Henry Bowles from Fovant getting married in 1744 to Elizabeth Marsham and again in 1755 to Ann Marshall (born 1720); is this Henry's father?
red mail Osman Martin
I have an ancestor Osman Martin who lived and died (d1740, SSG) in Stoke St Gregory, Somerset (SSG). He was married to Elizabeth (d1735, SSG). They had 3 children Osmond (1725-1840), John (b1731) and Mary (b1734). A link suggests that Osman senior hailed from Fovant, Wiltshire and was probably bord before 1707. There is no reference and I've been unable to verify this. Can anyone help to clarifiy Osman senior's DOB, parents, and/or his wife's surname. (No record of marriage at SSG). Any help/hints gratefully received.
