Here is a record of a marriage bond from Shrewsbury, Monmouth County NJ. I have several questions about this family.
#115; Lewis ELLISON of Shrewsbury in the County of Monmouth, and Robert MORRIS of the same town and county... [bound to]... William Franklin, Governor... 500 pounds... 27 Jan 1766. ... Lewis ELLISON... obtained license of marriage for himself and for Elizabeth PRICE of Shrewsbury... [w] blank **
Does someone connect to either of these here?
Who were Lewis ELLISON's parents?
Does someone know where they were married and where the children were baptized?
Also see below for marriage bond of a possible brother or cousin,
We have one Lewis ELLSION who died in Feb. 1789, whose wife was "Lydia." Is this the same man? Was he widowed and remarried? Or is "Lydia" an alternate name for 'Elizabeth' above?
Does someone have a burial for "Elizabeth ELLISON", nee PRICE --who had died between 1766 and 1789?
Probable son of Lewis ELLISON and "Lydia" is Lewis ELLISON (2) --per family bible records --born 10 Sept 1789, in Burlington County.
Recently received info suggests that his father, Lewis ELLISON (1, above) had died in 1789, intestate, in Shrewsbury, Monmouth Co.
Inventory of property (Â£199.9.1) had been made by Garret Longstreet and Abraham Osborn. Letters of Admin were not granted until 1793; Lydia was still a widow then (had same surname).
But if Lewis (2) is son of Lewis (1), then he was born 23 years after the marriage shown above. This does suggest that there might have been a second marriage for Lewis Ellison (1), which took place sometime before very early in 1789. Family info suggests that the wife's surname had been CURTIS. Does anyone connect with that surname?
Where can that marriage record be?
The amount of property left here (Â£199.9.1) suggests that Lewis Ellison would have made a will, so he might have died nexpectedly.
And if he is the father of my Lewis ELLISON said to be born in Burlington County, he left an expectant wife who soon moved.
Assuming that to be true --Does someone have an ELLISON (or ALLISON) family who had moved in the period between 1766 and 1789 from Shrewsbury to somewhere in Burlington County?
Did Lydia ___ Ellison, widow of Lewis, remarry someone who lived in Burlington County?
Does someone have an expectant Lydia who moved in with relatives in Fall 1789?
If someone connects or can comment on any of these questions, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it. I have more info down the line, including a connection to St George's and Pencader Hundreds, New Castle County, Delaware.
My ancestor of Lewis ELLISON the son, is Curttis Bennet ELLISON, (1809 - 1886) who married Mary Frances BELVILLE, d/o Dr Thomas BELVILLE and Sarah WOOD, of New Castle County, Delaware. C.B. ELLISON & Frances had 12 children; I have surnames of spouses for 8 of these & more info about some.
Thanks very much,
#102; Thomas ELLISON and Thomas THOMSON (TOMSON), both of the County of Monmouth... [bound to]... William FRANKLIN, Governor... 500 pounds... 15 May 1764. ... Thomas ELLISON... obtained license of marriage for himself and for Margrat MITCHELL of Shrewsbury... [w] Tho: LEONARD, Mary LEONARD **
