Re: William Chisholm & Sarah Cook mar. 1821 Bristol
I have just read your posting.Like you, William and Sarah are my x3 great grandparents and I am a descendant of his son William who married twice - firstly to Ann Wright and then after her death to Mary Ann Pike. William and Ann had a daughter Sarah Ann who married Robert Young.My grandfather was Albert Edward Young who in turn had a daughter Rose who was my mother.When she married my father Victor Lovering, she moved to Devon, thus breaking the link with Bristol.
I hope this hasn't bored you, but I wanted to share my frustration at not being able to trace our ancestor.I know that Chisholm is a common Sottish name, but I have come across Chisholms scattered across Gloucestershire so my gut feeling is that he remains embedded somewhere in the Glos. archives. I live in Devon so it is difficult for me to get up to the Bristol Record Office, but if I glean anything I'll get back to you. Best Wishes - Sheila Molland
