HILES, Moses (General)

by BDaviesVera @, Sunday, April 08, 2012, 22:54 (1056 days ago)

I am stuck on my research for the Hiles family. Sophia Hiles married Richard Gibbs in 1838 at Awre. Her father was Moses and in 1838 he was living at Blakeney, working as a sawyer. In 1841 he was living at High Street, Mitcheldean, his wife was Mary. I cannot seem to get further back than 1838 for information on Moses, can anyone help me please? Incidentally Richard Gibbs (my 3x gt grandfather)was a fossil collector for the 1851 Geological Survey and he named his house Fossil Cottage. The cottage, as he named it, still exists at The Plump, Mitcheldean. Thank you.

HILES, Moses

(when Sophia HILES married Richard GIBBS - 26 May 1838, one witness was Mary HILES)

-----

Looking at the 1841 census

Moses HILES is age 58, Sawyer, not born in County
Elizabeth HILES - 25 - born in County


using the Advance Search you will find

Children of Moses & Mary HILES at Ryford Baptist

Jane 1809
Elizabeth 1812
Mary 1815

These births are also on CLDS site (non-conformist register - Weston Under Penyard - Sophia GIBBS (nee HILES on the 1851 census, is age 33 and says she was born, Herefordshire, Weston)

FOD records do have a burial for a Mary HILES - Mitcheldean Congregational - age 56 - 19 May 1839 also Mary HILES age 24 on the 28 April 1839 (who could be Mary HILES c1815) - so the mother was probably the witness at Sophia's marriage in May 1838)

Thank you very much for your help. Is the Mitcheldean Congregational Church still there? I thought there was only St Michael's Church in the village?

Moses HILES 1783- 1849 ?

by slowhands @, proud of his ancient Dean Forest roots, Monday, April 09, 2012, 07:54 (1055 days ago) @ BDaviesVera

1841
Moses Hiles abt 1783 Mitchell Dean, Gloucestershire Sawyer
Elizabeth Hiles abt 1816 Gloucestershire, England Mitchell Dean, Gloucestershire
Benjmain Ball abt 1816 Gloucestershire, England Mitchell Dean, Gloucestershire

"next door"
Richard Gibbs abt 1816 Gloucestershire, England Mitchell Dean, Gloucestershire
Sophia Gibbs abt 1821 Gloucestershire, England Mitchell Dean, Gloucestershire
Mary Ann Gibbs abt 1839 Gloucestershire, England Mitchell Dean, Gloucestershire
George Gibbs abt 1841 Gloucestershire, England Mitchell Dean, Gloucestershire

No obvious candidate for him in 1851 - as HILES, ILES etc....

This might be his death, esp if he is a "wanderer"
