Note N1478 Index
I found him travelling from Bermuda to NYC on November 4, 1941. He is in several city directories for Taunton up to 1949. Like his father, he was a mason.
Note N1479 Index
I have only recetnly doscovered that he married just before he was shipped off.
Note N1480 Index
To start with, I am not convinved that I have correctly assigned this Edward Timms to the right father. I only know of his existence due to letters of administration granted on May 4, 1723, to Edward Timms, lawful son of Edward Timms of Stourton.
Note N1481 Index
I say that he died before November 1839 as he is described as her "late father" in her will of November 9, 1839.
Note N1482 Index
Her will is quite fascinating. It involves a lot of money to be left to her brother Henry Watson, sister Mary Roberts,and her sister's daughter Mary Anne Roberts. There is a lot to do with one thousand pounds sterling owed to her as a result of a instrument from 1832 which also involved an Edward Timms of Cherington: William's brother?
Note N1483 Index
I only know of him because of the will oh his nephew, Henry Timms of Whichford.
Note N1484 Index
It is strictly a guess that he was the John Timms buried on January 22, 1826. I think that it is more likely that he died in 1877 as the math is better.
