Note N1257 Index
He is described as being from Whichford in the marriage register.
Note N1258 Index
He mentions no wife or children in his will. Therefore I presume he had none. He does speak of his mother Mary, and his brothers Nicholas, Thomas, and Henry and his sisters Mary Timmes and Margaret Thornet, wife of Ambrose Thornett.
Note N1259 Index
In his attestation record when he signed up for WW1, dated February 16, 1916, he was still single and living with his parents at 1219. 13th Avenue, West, in Calgary. He gives his birth place as Wellburn, Ontario. He was a mail clerk.
Note N1261 Index
His will was dated September 21, 1843, and proven March 28, 1848. It was proven by his daugher Kezia, wife of William Timms. So which William did she marry? I think that I have that right.
He also speaks of his "dear wife Kezia" and and his son "Edward Timms, the younger". From that I conclude that they were the only surviving children in 1843. But I have never found a son Edward, only John who died in 1839.
Note N1262 Index
As per his will, he did not marry his housekeeper but she bore him two children: Anthony and John.
Note N1263 Index
He was baptised Anthony Barlett, on December 25, 1818. His twin, Henry was baptised on the same day I cannot find his brother John's baptism.
Note N1264 Index
I appear to have his will done on December 31, 1711. He speaks of his wife Elizabeth and his children William and Anne. Anne is clearly under 21 years of age because the will speaks of receiving her legacy when and if she attains that age. All of the property bequeathed by him is in Hook Norton. The will was witnessed by Edward Timmes among others. Since I know that Anne married Anthony Dickins, then she obviously survived to age 21.
Note N1265 Index
In his will of March 19, 1764, he speaks of his brother-in-law Nicholas Timms of Burryfield in Hook Norton. He speaks of his two friends, Thomas Brain of Long Compton and Thomas Snow of Tidmington, Gloucestershire. If I am right, then Thomas Snow was actually his brother-in-law. At the date of his will he had not children but he speaks of possible heirs to be born.
He also speaks of his sister-in-law Margaret Thornett, wife of Ambrose Thornett of Sutton under Brailes and his sister-in-law Mary Slatter, wife of William Slatter of Ascot. He also speaks of Thomas Timmes, brother of Nicholas.
He also speaks of his nephews William Timmes and John Timmes, sons of his late brother William Timmes. But most puzzlingly, he speaks of his mother-in-law, Mary Timmes and his brothres-in-law Nicholas and Thomas Timmes. I am forced ot believe, subject to the sloopy language, that he married his cousin Margaret Timmes, but then why the refence to Amrose Thornett of Sutton under Brailes, and his sister-in-law, Margaret Timms, wife of Ambrose?
It is actually quite a complicated will dealing with mortgages and the forgiving thereof. I need to read it again more carefully.
Note N1266 Index
I have found his will dated August 10, 1819. He give everything to Thomas Sheldon of Birmingham and Stephen Jarrett of Cherington upon various trusts for his wife and children: Anne, Elizabeth, Sarah, Amelis, William, Joseph, and John. He does not say which ones are under the age of 21, but does say that they have to have that age to get the bequest. The will was proven by the executors and the widow on July 10, 1820. His burial record said that he was age 79 when buried.
Note N1267 Index
I have used Williams as her family name only because Joseph Jarrett and Hannah Williams witnessed a marriage in Cherington in 1792.
