Re: Plews SPENNITHORNE/WENSLEY North yorkshire
My wife is also a direct descendant of Marmaduke Plews of Spennithorne but not "your" Marmaduke. "Ours" was married to an Elizabeth (possibly Elizabeth Hunter of Hipswell) and had seven children recorded in the Spennithorne parish registers:
Thomas bap February 9, 1772
Marmaduke bap July 17, 1774
Elizabeth bap January 22, 1775
Mary bap September 28, 1777
Peter bap July 8, 1781 (my wife's ancestor)
Frances bap May 27, 1787
Jane bap July 24, 1791
At the borth of Thomas, his parents were described as being "of Bellerby"; when their other children were born, there were "of Harmby".
Have you ever been able to link "your" Marmaduke with "ours"
