Joesy has been a Family Tree Circles member since Nov 2012.
Both James senior and Mary had been married before and were widowed. James was from the parish of Hempton.
I found this and may be of interest:
Will of Thomas Shirley, Felmonger of St Martin at Oak in the city of Norwich, Norfolk. Proved in the Court of Norfolk. January 19 1797 IR 26/388 [Death Duty] Executors: James Shirley of Chippenham Park, Cambridgeshire, gardiner (brother) and John Dyball of Upton in Norfolk, farmer. Residue of estate converted to money and reserved to daughter Judith Shirley (a minor). But in case she should not reeach age 21, then L100 part to my father James Shirley and the residue divided equally between brother and sister (Mary Shirley) and wife if they all be living.
