Elizabeth Pope (b.abt. 1858 -1839) at Burford Parish Church, Oxfordshire, 1784. Known children:
The three eldest children were all baptised in Burford. The five youngest children were all baptised in Eynsham Parish Church, Oxfordshire. John was buried in Eynsham churchyard in 1814 aged 22 years. William died in 1833 and was recorded as being aged 73 years. It's possible he was actually a few years younger in age. Elizabeth died of old age in 1839, aged 82 years. Both were buried at Eynsham Parish Church.
Elizabeth and Ann are part of my direct female line (see link on left).
married (3) Thomas Bates (d. 1864) in an unknown year.
Ann married William Bennett in June of 1817, her daughter Ann was born in November 1817, so Ann must have been pregnant when she married William. The marriage didn't last long as William died in May 1818. William was noted as being a labourer. One of the witnesses at their marriage was Thomas Humphries (presumably Ann's brother).
Ann married Thomas Curtis the year after Williams death. One of the witnesses at their marriage was a Mary Riddle. Mary had also been a witness at Ann's first marriage. Thomas died in 1841.
Thomas Bates died in 1864, apparently aged 72 years but I think he was actually aged 62 years, Ann died in 1873 aged 75 years.
