I am a descendant of John Washbrooke and Ann Wiles:
Their daughter, Ann Washbrooke, married John Steward 3 August 1835.Their son, John Steward, married Emma Cook 13 January 1868.John Steward and Emma Cook Steward removed to Warkworth, Ontario, Canada ca 1870, and thence to Mason County, Michigan in 1880. Their son Albert Edward Stewart married Libbie Porter in 1 Jan 1896, having a son Archie Albert Stewart who married Edna Gowell.I am David Stewart, their son.
So, John Washbrooke and Ann Wiles Washbrooke are my gggrandparents.
Records from England show on the marriage certificate, that John Washbrooke was a widower.Was his first wife also named Ann?An Ann Washbrooke was buried 14 June 1797.I have the following children of John Washbrooke:
Elizabeth bp 25 December 1792 Hannah bp 6 April 1795 Ann buried 29 April 1797 (Did the first wife, Ann die of complications from childbirth of Ann?)
