Earlier Wilkinson

Much of this info. originally came from Susan Andrews, whose husband,John , shares Joseph Wilkinson & Anne Perrey as common ggggggrandparents with me.[ John also related through the Turners]. Much now verified through Seax records . Names in bold are my direct ancestors. I have only found the parish entries for the children underlined .



Joseph Wilkinson, c.1737-1810, married Anne Perry on 1/11/1767 in Lindsell. D/P 110/1/2. image 5. He is given as a plowman, she as joined??? servant, both of Lindsell parish, he presumably working there. Neither could seemingly write.


Ann Perrey was baptised 25/01/1747 in Lindsell to Jonah & Susannah Perrey. Jonah Perrey married Susannah Pavitt 30 Sep 1746 at St Mary the Virgin, Lindsell.[they went on to have 5 more children].

No baptism found c1736-47 for Joseph Wilkinson in Lindsell, so he was probably born in a different parish. Also no obvious baptisms found for Jonah Perrey or Susannah Pavitt in Lindsell 1716-1728: Jonah ~1720 from his age at death in 1791. No death found in Lindsell for Susannah Perrey.

They had the following 10 children, all baptised in Lindsell:

Sarah 1768, Rhoda 1769 - 1794, Mary 1771, Joseph 1773, Elizabeth1775, John 1777, William 12/03/1780, Susan 1782, Ann 1785, Samuel 1788..

Joseph Wilkinson was buried 1/7/1810, age given as 74, Lindsell. Anne Wilkinson/Perrey was buried 6/05/1791, aged 44- this not on burial record- , Lindsell. Fiche D/P 110/1/1 now digitised and available on Seax. All Lindsell records 1576-1812 meant to be on the 80 images of this : also have list of everything found in my "Pooh book" at present, & hopefully anything relevant to Wilkinsons is now on these web pages .


Have left more on this entry of Joseph's 1810 death, as the Prances were the family at Simpkins farm, where Ezekiel Turner worked in 1841. And, Susannah Turner, 62, , was Susannah Smith/Turner who was my 5xggrandmother


Jonas Perry buried 5 days after Anne is probably her father, aged ~71, so born~1720

William Wilkinson 1780-1842, was bapt. in Lindsell 12/3/1780, & married Rebecca Chatters [1783 ] on 14/11/1803, Rayne. Both given as of Rayne parish. .D/P 126/1/4 - image 23. Rayne just 2/3 miles from Lindsell.
