Charlotte MARSHALL nee WOODBURN 1811-1887
published by Pat Hase on Fri, 03/05/2019 - 18:55

Although this is a little outside of this area I need some help to sort out the WOODBURN (and variants) who lived in Wells, Somerset. 

Charlotte WOODBURN married John MARSHALL on Christmas Eve in 1835 in Shepton Mallet.  The marriage was witnessed by a Charles MARSHALL who I believe was John's brother. Their father, Jesse MARSHALL, was born in Winscombe.

John & Charlotte MARSHALL were my husband's gg grandparents and when their son Frederick was born in 1838 the informant was a Ann CARDWELL who was described as "aunt of the child, present at the birth"

There is a marriage in 1828 at St Cuthbert's Church in Wells of an Ann WOODBURN to a Joseph CARDWELL, which suggests that Ann and Charlotte WOODBURN might be sisters.  Later census entries give birth dates of  Ann about 1807, and Charlotte about 1811.  I haven't found a christening of an Ann WOODBURN but a Charlotte WOODBURN was christened at St Cuthbert's Church in June 1811, the daughter of Mary WOODBURN of East Wells. 

There are three more christenings of daughters of a Mary WOODBURN at St Cuthbert's - Jane in 1813, Caroline in 1814 and Mary Anne in 1816.  Is this the same Mary WOODBURN who married William CLARK in St Cuthbert's in 1819 and was he the father of her children?

I look forward to your suggestions
