William Thomas of Wotton under Edge. Gloucestershire. England

Journal by eileen1973

My 2x Great Grandfather WILLIAM THOMAS was born in Wotton under Edge,
Gloucestershire, England in 1792 or thereabouts. He was a Wheelwright by trade, he married HANNAH[Anna Witchel] ROWLES [born 1798 and baptised in 1806 at W-u-E] in Gloucestershire.
William's parents were JOSEPH THOMAS and SARAH LACEY who married on 25th November 1788, again at Wotton.
William and Hannah had 9 children [that I have so far found]-ELIZA born 1820, MELICENT 1822,MARY 1823, LLEWELLIN about 1826- ALFRED about 1828- FREDERIC 1831- [another] ELIZA 1836- MILLICENT 1839.
LLEWELLIN moved to Bristol and set up a Building/decorating/glaizer company there between the 1850's and the 1880's, when he died his sons WILLIAM KINGDON THOMAS and CHARLES THOMAS took over.
ALFRED married HARRIET JAMES and moved his family to London where he also set up business as a builder etc.
I think ELIZA also moved to Bristol, married a man called CHARLES PHILLIPS and they ran a Green Grocers in the Stokes Croft area for many years.
MILLICENT never married but made her way up to London doing various domestic servant jobs on her way, ending up as Housekeeper to a Jacob Monteflorie in Grovenor? Square London.
FREDERIC was my Great Grandfather, he remained in Wotton all his life, he married MARY JENKINS born in North Nibley, Gloucestershire.

If any of these name/dates come up in your family history I would be glad to hear from you.
