Research Notes

Michael Marshall
Two christening entries in LDS
(1) abt 1792 South Newton - no parents
(2) 15 Feb 1795 Winterbourne Gunner, parents George and Rebecca
    - agrees accurately with his census entry, and his next door neighbour, so this is it
Winterbourne Gunner is six miles east of South Newton
Originally I had  Michael Marshall as a son of George Marshall and Rebecca Folland. However Lynne Brereton in May 2007  pointed out "... several siblings with parents George and Rebecca Marshall, covering a period between 1792 and 1809 in Winterbourne Gunner, Wilts. However, the last child would make Rebecca around 54 at its birth. So I back-tracked and found a marriage for George Marshall to Rebecca Harris in Winterbourne Earls in 1791"
She is obviously right. George fits nicely with Michael's next door neighbour in the 1841 census.
George Marshall
LDS has two tries for George's christeming which fit nicely with the 1841 census
(a) Wilton 1771, parents George and Susannah -  (six miles from Winterbourne)
(c) Berwick Saint James 1771, parents William and Jane) (nine miles from Winterbourne).
When we look at casse (a), their other children were christened in Winterbourne, and they were married in Winterbourne. Christenings give Susan and Susannah. Case (a) is it
