Note    N926         Index
Who was she? There is a Mary Timms, of Stourton, buried on 11th January, 1824, at 43 years of age. That would make her born in 1781, which would be the same year as her husband. But there is no baptism for her that year in Whichford. Was it elsewhere?

Notes


Note    N928         Index
The dates of death for her and her spouse come from the fact that they are both the "late" in will of Jane Timms of November 9, 1839.

Notes


Note    N930         Index
I take her death date from the fact that her will was proven on March 4, 1857, and from an entry in the parish records.

I am not certain who George Bailey mentioned in her will was, but in the 1851 census, he is shown as a widower.

Notes


Note    N933         Index
There is a discrepancy between his noted date of death in the MI and his burial date in the parish records.

It would seem that he never married. But, in his will dated May 28, 1855, he speaks of his two illegitimate sons Anthony Bartlett and John Bartlett, previously called Anthony Timms and John Timms. He names them as the children of his late housekeeper, Elizabeth Bartlett

In the 1851 census, he is listed as the head, age 72, along with his son John Timms, age 26, and his housekeeper, Elizabeth Bartlett, age 55. I am not sure where the son Anthony was.

I cannot find either son in 1861.

Note    N934         Index
Irene Connelly (Timms) says that he gained the middle name Middleton later in life. I wonder from where? The 1851 census shows him born in 1780 and his son Henery born in 1820. I have to wonder why those are so wrong.

I have his will which reads as follows:

Notes


Note    N937         Index
Irene Connelly says that none of their children ever married. She has Edwin's sketch book.

In the 1851 census, William and Kezia are together with the then two alive children, as well as Kezia's mother Kezia and Edward Timms, age 49, who is described as William's brother in law.. But Kezia had no brother named Edward. So who was he? There is also a visitor, Elizabeth Cowley, age 65, from Hook Norton, Oxfordshire. In the will of Hannah Timms of Hook Norton, from 1854, she speaks of her sister in law, Elizabeth Cowley, sister of her late husband.

In the 1881 census, he is still at home with his father.
