|Recently, I received a copy of my gggg grandfather's will, Samuel Green.
It was found in the Index to the Consistory Court of Ely Probate
Records 1449-1858, dated September 23, 1839 and proven by the Lord
Bishop of Ely on the June 16, 1840.
Samuel was probably born in approx. 1780 because it is stated that he died
at the age of 60 on Feb. 1, 1840. He married Susanna BILLET
on August 5, 1806 in March in the Isle of Ely in the county of Cambridgeshire.
Samuel was a miller/farmer. I believe his father was a miller, also.
They had several children, all baptized in March. Their names as followed:
Samuel Billet, Frederic, Cornwell, Susanna, Catherine, Charles, Anthony Edward,
Caroline, Theodore Billet, Matilda Sarah Jane, and Mary Ann.
I know that Samuel Billet married Emma FOUNTAIN and had one child that died
at a very young age. However, I have no idea if they had any other children.
Frederic was my ggg grandfather. I know most of the history on him.
Cornwell was mentioned in Samuel's will. At the time she wasn't married.
She was baptized on May 26, 1811 in March. I'd like to find anything else about
her that is available.
Susanna was mentioned in Samuel's will. She was baptised June 19, 1814 in March.
At the time she wasn't married.
However, I do know that sometime later, she married William Golden. I
was reading something I got off the internet and saw a William Golden
listed as Governors of the March Consolidated charities. I have no other
information on her. I'd be interested in any further information on Susanna.
Catherine "Kate" was mentioned in Samuel's will. She was married to Orlando Horace
Cooper. She was baptised on May 22, 1817 in March. I have no other information on
her and would be interested in more if available.
Charles was either baptized on June 4, 1819 or August 10, 1824 in March. There were two
Charles listed to Samuel and Susanna. I'm assuming the second date was for the
Charles mentioned in Samuel's will. I have no other information on him.
Anthony Edward was mentioned in Samuel's will. He was baptized on Feb 27, 1823.
However, I have no other information on him.
Theodore Billet baptized on January 3, 1826 in March. He wasn't mentioned in Samuel's will.
I'm assuming he died at a young age. However, I don't have a date
Matilda Sarah Jane was baptized on March 21, 1829 in March. I have her as
being buried on Sept. 9. 1829.
Mary Ann was baptized on August 26, 1832 at the age of 19. She was buried
on Sept. 13, 1832.
I was hoping by acquiring a copy of Samuel's will, it might state who his
father or his siblings were or more about his children. However, it didn't mention
his father or siblings.
Therefore, I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions on where
to go from here to find out that information.
Would records of land mentioned in his will, give his father's name? If
so, a list of land mentioned is as followed:
- Dole in Creek in March aforesaid containing eight acres and two roods
of Land late Grounds Goodman
- New erected Messuages, or Tenements near the Bridge in March aforesaid
with the ground thereto belonging called part of the "Acre Estate" now
in the occupation of Burdell Phillips and Henry Richard Drew.
- Dole in Whitemoor in March aforesaid containing nine acres and two
roods Land late (Frushers??)
- And those my five acres and three roods in Creek late John Crowleys
- Lot or Dole in Whitemoor aforesaid containing Ten acres of Land late Barns's
- 27 acres of Freehold and Copyhold Land in Norwood in March aforesaid
which I purchased of Mess Edmund Barley and William Pratt the Trustees
for Sale under the will of Mary Barley deceased.
- All those my eight Cottages or Tenements in Whittle and Norwood side
and Outwell and in March
- 9 acres of Land in West Fenn called Impey's Piece
- Stock in Trade Cattle Corn Cropping Farming Utensils
Any help in finding my ggggg grandparents and their other children would be greatly appreciated.
I'll be looking forward to hearing from you!!
