My known information re. SAMUEL Wrixon is:- b 1786 (typing error in my original post). This date from records kept by earlier family members; earlier to me, that is. Have not been able to confirm it from Dorset Parish Records so far, so place of birth not identified, though thought to be Dorset. m 1st Aug 1811 to Elizabeth Mawson, Powerstock, Dorset. d 1815 - Age 29, result of an accident. (documented in literature) Children were:- Samuel Mawson Wrixon, b 1811, Powerstock, Dorset, plus possibly two other siblingss, names might be Alice and George, but at present have been unable to confirm this latter information.
That this branch of the family originally came from Ireland is infomation that has been passed down through the generations by word of mouth.
