Is anyone else researching the family of George Wilkinson baptised in Stocking Pelham on 21 April 1793, son of William Wilkinson and his wife Elizabeth (Bradford?)
In 1812 George was named in a Maintenance Order as the father of a son George born to Mary Knightley of Furneux Pelham. The couple married in S. Pelham on 15 Aug 1814 and went on to have 10 more children, but there is a gap between James c1817 and Jane in 1823 who unlike her siblings was christened in Furneux Pelham (the rest were in S Pelham). George was named as licensee of the Cock in 1817 but someone else is listed in 1822. Census records and her Spring 1873 death certificate consistently point to the birth of Mary Knightley in Berden c1790, which fits with the baptism of Mary daughter of John Knightley and Hannah Chipperfield in Berden, Essex in Nov 1789.
My interest is an elusive ancestor John Wilkinson who might be the 1817 James but might also be an additional child born between 1817 and 1823
