Please can any one help me track down a birth or baptism for my elusive gggrandmother Anna Maria ACRES?
Anna was born about 1815, but I have no idea where!
She married gggranddad John SMART (who was a groom) in 1842 in Bloomsbury, Middlesex. Shortly after the birth of great-grannie Jane, a month later, they moved to Leicester where 3 more children were born; John, Sophia and Maria Sophia.
Anna Maria died in Oadby Leicester in 1846, aged 31 according to her death certificate. The marriage certificate states her father's name was William ACRES and that he was a wheelwright.
Since John SMART came from Wiltshire originally Anna Maria ACRES may also have been born there. She was a cook in Bedford Square at the time of her marriage to John.
I have no idea whether Anna Maria had any siblings, but I would hazzard a guess her mother was named Jane as Sophia was the name of John's mother and there were no Jane's in the SMART family.
Finally, the witnesses to the marriage were Heneage PATTERNS and Henrietta HEDGES. I have no idea whether they were related in any way.
