April A-Z Challenge – W for Thomas Waters Snr

April 29, 2017

The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is a challenge put out to bloggers to publish a post from A-Z every day in April, except for Sundays. April 1 is A, and so on throughout the month. Bloggers can post randomly or on a theme. The theme I have chosen is ‘My Ancestors’. I used this same theme for the Blogging from A-Z April Challenge in 2015. This time the ancestors posted about will mostly be more distant members of the family. Hopefully, when combined this will form a full picture of my family history.

THOMAS WATERS Snr is my great great great grandfather, born in 1793 at Eyeworth, Bedfordshire, England.

In 1824, he married  ANN IZZARD  of  Cambridgeshire, England. They married at Dunton Bedfordshire and went on to live in Dunton as market gardeners. Their property was a moated farm called Newton Bury farm.  The property doesn’t exist today, but satellite photos  show where the moat was.

They had nine children:

WILLIAM  born 1824
EDITH born 1825
ELIZABETH born 1828
THOMAS born 1829
DAVID born 1832
JOHN born 1835
GEORGE born 1838
MARY born 1840
ANNIE born 1843

Fourth child Thomas was my great great grandfather

Thomas Waters died on 01 December 1863 at Dunton and is buried at Dunton.
