My sister has in her possesion a bible which belonged to my Great grandfather Thomas James Willson.He recieved this bible in 1902. In the front of the bible there are several names listed,they read:-Charlotte Allen departed this life December 18th 1885 age 55 years, born 3rd march 1830 Thomas Allen b 4th june 1808, baptised In the Parish of St Margarets, Leicester, 9th june 1808, Died aged 92 Years 8 months on February 14th 1901,
In the 1881 Charlotte is listed as Thomas's wife and they are still living in Leicester.
Also listed is William Boddingtons died on 3rd January 1854 in the 25th year of life.
Hannah Spencer,Died on 25th September 1854 in 53 year.
John Spencer, Died 28th April 1858, age 70 at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
Ann Swingler Died on 10th January 1855, age 44.
As yet I have not been able to make a connection between theese people, but they could possible be relatives of either Thomas Willson's mother or his mother in laws family.
i have been told that my great grandmothers (thomas's Wife) were of swiss origin and that there name was Swingler or Svingler? or something along those lines which would connect, Also one of Thomas siblings had a child who had married an 'Allen'
if anyone has a connection, in any way, I'd love to hear from you
