Where was Martha GRANT born? published by Pat Hase on Sun, 22/09/2019 - 0:34
When William ELLY and Martha GRANT, my 3 x great grand parents were married on the 6th Dec 1803 at Swainswick near Bath they were both described as Sojourners. I took this to mean that neither had been born in Swainswick.
However there is a baptism of a William ELLY in Swainswick in 1782 s/o Isaac & Susannah ELLY. As William & Martha's first child was a Susannah and they also had an Isaac I am inclined to believe that this is my Wiliam ELLY.
William was buried in Swainswick in 1832 but Martha lived until 1865. On the 1851 and 1861 censuses her birth place is also given as Swainswick. I can find no suitable baptism for Martha GRANT - Can anyone help me find her birth?
