Hello,
I have just seen your webpage re the above - such a wealth of information! Thanks so much for all the effort to put it together.
I can add one more little shred of information re the Wintersons of Tetbury. Frances Winterson (base child of of Elizabeth) eventually wed 12 Apr 1812 my Gx3 Grandfather George Hinton who was a builder and carpenter in Cirencester. She was known as Fanny. They kept the Barley Mow pub on Castle Street. It would have been interesting to know who Frances' father was.
Thanks again for the gold mine.
Best regards, Mike Hawkridge


Frances Winterson was baptised 1 March 1793, base child of Elizabeth Winterson a pauper
Elizabeth Winterson baptised Harriet 27 Jul 1796, and buried her base child Elizabeth 12 May 1797, who died without being baptised. On 26 July 1796 she declared that Thomas Blake was the father of her female bastard child. This is the only surviving Certificate for Bastardy sworn by Elizabeth Winterson
Joseph White wed 11 Aug 1800 to Elizabeth Winterson (but he is not made Guardian of Frances, in grand father William's Will)
Equally curious - Esther Winterson baptised her base child William, on 10 Sep 1799, and he is ignored in the Will, too.

William Winterson's 7 children wed
John Winterson wed 18 Sept 1792 to Martha White
Robert Crook, a minor, wed 9 May 1793 to Sarah Winterson
James Long wed 12 Sept 1793 to Anne Winterson
James Mann wed 6 Nov 1799 to Hester Winterson
Joseph White wed 11 Aug 1800 to Elizabeth Winterson
John Chambers wed 15 Dec 1800 to Jane Winterson
John Gradlistone wed 8 July 1802 to Hannah Winterson
