Kay Fisher writes:
I have James who married Mary Wilson being descended from another James (b1747 d 1811). This James was married twice firstly to Mary Petit 1769 (d1769), secondly to Sarah Jeffery in 1771 (d 1793).
This James is in turn descended from Edward (b1715 d 1752). He seems to have been married twice- to Frances Jackson and to Ann?. I have one of his cousins being murdered by William Sutton yeoman of Withersfield, Cambs.
Edward is descended from Thomas b? d 1728. He was married to Anne who d 1729. They had 9 children: Thomas, John, William, William, Mathew, Edward, Mary, James and Anne. He was described in a Bishop's transcript on the register as a'pore man' and his wife as a 'por widow'. His brother John was mentioned in the will of John Bentley of Shudy Camps in 1715 as a tenant.
This Thomas is descended from another Thomas who d 1707 and Margaret who
died 1694/95. They lived at Horseheath and had 6 sons and 1 daughter baptised
at the church between 1677-94- the youngest two dying in infancy.
I am descended from Nathan- son of James and Mary Wilson, this being James 2nd marriage.One daughter survived from the first marriage and 7 from the second marriage- Sophia, Aaron,Amos Nathan,Milly, Elizabeth and Philip. The 1851 census has Mary, a pauper, living with Elizabeth, a needlewoman, and Philip a labourer.
Nathan born in 1812 in Shudy Camps married Betsy Cowell from Castle Camps 8 Dec 1833, and was an agricultural labourer like his forefathers. One of Nathan's sons was John b 1856 d 1895. At the time of his marriage to Catherine Eleanor Reed, the daughter of a soldier from Leake in Notts on 17 Sept 1882, he was a farm labourer. He became a general dealer in Cambridge and died from tetanus as a result of a fall from a cart, Mill Road, Cambridge. His horse shied at the railway crossing.
One of his sons was Alfred Arthur(b23 Dec 1891). He was my grandfather I never knew. He married my grandmother Dorothy Dorkings whose brother sailed on and survived the Titanic disaster.
