  • Note:
    William was 22 years of age and Mary was 26 years of age at the time of their marriage . They had a family of ten children who were all born in Chinnor, Oxfordshire, England and baptised at St. Andrew's Church in Chinnor. However, at least three of their children did not survive infancy, as John died at one year of age in 1804, Ann (1814) and Martha aged 3 months (1822).

    One son, also named John migrated to Australia with his brother Edmund, our ancestor, where they both raised families. The only remaining male child, George, stayed in England and in 1881 at the age of 62 years his occupation was a 'Domestic Gardener' and he was residing at 'Farm Fold', Pownall Fee, Cheshire, England with his wife Mary, and their two daughters. Ellen aged 26 and Elizabeth, aged 19, who were both "Cotton Weavers" and were born in Styal, Cheshire.

    Their youngest child, Lucy married Francis CHOWN in 1846 at Sydenham, Oxfordshire, England when she was 21 years of age. Lucy gave birth to seven children in Sydenham, Mark (1850), Thomas (1853), Esther Elizabeth (1856), Alice (1858), Mary Ann Lucy (1860), George Francis (1863) and Leah Frances (1864). Lucy's husband Francis CHOWN, and therefore their children, are also direct descendants of our ancestors John and Joan CHOWN (ca.1700) of Aston, Rowant, Oxfordshire.

    William's father Richard was born at Blewbury and was "of Blewbury" when he married Mary in 1762, on the Brookes Marriage Index complied many years ago by John Brookes and now part of Berkshire Family History Society Marriage Index. Richard's parents are John WITNEY and Mary HUGGILL of Blewbury. I have no more on these two. There are HUGGILL's in Blewbury but no baptism for a Mary and no indication of John WITNEY. They married at Blewbury on 8 Oct 1727 and had all boys : John, Francis, William, Thomas, (then Richard) and James.
