Thanks for your details. I actually live on the Isle of Wight and worship at St Marys Carisbrooke where John and Mary were married. (If you want a photo and details of the church let me know)Pittis is an old island name and there are still many generations here. I have a photocopy of part of the history of the Pittis family. Which child of Robert Jewell are you descended from ?
I have looked in my records and see that the following baptisms took place at Portsea
Children of William and Sarah Charles baptised20th Feb 1791 Robertbaptised 20th March 1792 Ann baptised25th August1797 Sarahbaptised4th September 1785 Sarahbaptised 17th August 1788 (presumably the first Sarah must have died )
There is no mention of Sarah's maiden name there but l think that this must have been the family. When l am next over in Portsmouth l will investigate further and see ifl can find any other details about the Edneys or the Jewells.
