I've just found my Castlemartin Hundred pre-1813 marriage
index....unfortunately this does not match up husbands and wives...however,
if you haven't already received this information...............
At. St. Florence, George Shears married in 1804 and a William Shears
married in 1811. I can supply the names of 4 Shears girls who married at
St. Florence in this period if you need them.
In the expectation that William Ferrier Williams took his middle name from
his mother, I looked for possible connections. At St. Florence, a James
Williams married in 1804 and an Ann Ferrier married in 1804.....also James
Williams in 1810 married and a Margaret Ferrier also married in 1810.
Whether they married each other, you'd have to get the parish register
marriage entry to find out.....however Rose may already have this in her
Bettye Kirkwood, Australia.

Subject: [Dyfed] William Ferrier Williams update and thanks
My thanks to all who responded and have given me such a wealth of
Bettye, I have emailed H'west RO, no response yet, I will look into
obtaining copies of the Wills which you found in my last 2 searches.
Owen, the source of my information that WFW m'd Jane Shears 1st Qtr 1838
Pembroke, is from GRO via FreeBMD. He was married to Jane in 1841 census.
The burial record you found, would correspond with the time of the birth
of her daughter Jane. I will try to obtain a copy to verify this
Sylvia, I will look into the 1815 Carew birth connection, age sounds
Owen, you have checked further into WFW's life, and found his 2nd
marriage to Sarah Morris nee Eastlake. Thanks for the details.
In 1841 Sarah was married to John Morris, a blacksmith, living on
Pembroke St, Pem St. Mary. The burial entry #231 matches his age and
location. So thanks for that too. I guess that the James Eastlake witness
at the marriage, as well as Thomas Eastlake, also a butcher at 9 Pembroke
St, are probably her brothers. So Sarah would be her widowed mother. Good
enough for me.
Once again, the list members have come through, many thanks.
