The info re his children more or less all comes from Len Sturch. More recently, I was sent a copy of his will by Cliff Ilton. It was dated March 2, 1742 and was proven in London on December 12, 1749. I also downloaded the will from the National Archives. Deborah was alive at the time of the making of the will. Therefore she died after that. Indeed, she was the one who proved the will in 1749. I have never been able to find a burial for her though. I cannot makeout the names of the witnesses except for John Jones.

The parish register says he was buried March 30, 1704. That must be 1070 as per the MI.

In the 1900 census, she is shown as being born in New York. Her parents were born in Ireland and Ireland. His (Nevin's) mother-in-law also lives there and her name seems to be Blane or Blair.

I am making a guess re her last name and their marriage. There is a John Timms who married an Elizabeth Watkins on December 30, 1852, by banns. He was a 22 year old bachelor, son of Edward Timms, farmer, deceased. She was a 23 year old spinster, daughter of William Watkins, farmer. The witnesses were William Timms and Sarah Timms.

There are entries in the burial records for Whichford and the MI's referring to other Timms from Dorn and Moreton-in-the Marsh. I expect that they are related. The last on was from 1977 Are there still some there?

He and Margaret are in Batsford, Gloucester, in the 1891 census. Only Elizabeth Gertrude is with them.

This William and his wife appear to be in Ditchford (Blockley parish) in the 1901 census. He was 45 years old and born in Whichford. His wife Margaret was 43 and was born in Green Hill Lane, Derbyshire. The children were William E. 8, born in Batsford, Gloucester and John G., born in Ditchford. Where was Elizabeth?

June Timms Thornton advised me that he was a bachelor.

I believe that I have found him in the 1901 census for England. He is listed as a single person working as a farm bailiff in Alderminster. He has a house servant, Margaret Jones, 29, living with him.

His MI says that he died at age 50, which is accurate because he was just about to turn age 51 when he died.
