  • Notes 
    • Daughter of Franics Meriwether and Grace Axford??

      Market Lavington:
      Mr John Axford parish of All Saints Bristol, and Mrs. Jane Merewether of Easterton, by licence 24.04.1746.

      Is this John from Devizes??

      Warren,
      Notice you are researching the Wise Family from West Lavington in Wiltshire and I have an ancestor John Axford (known as John the Elder) who married an Elizabeth Wise in Feb 1759. It was a 2nd marriage for John, his 1st wife was Jane Merewether of Market Lavington (Easterton) in 1746 (she was b 1715 dau of Grace Axford & Francis Merewether). Jane died 1758 and John then married Elizabeth Wise.

      Elizabeth Wise on the Sarum Marriage Licence Bond is described as a widow of Chitterne St Mary Wiltshire, John Axford is described as "gent" residing at Urchfont (Eastcott) Wiltshire. The bondsman was Francis Merewether, gent, Allington Wilts.

      My question to you is, do you have any idea what Elizabeth's maiden name was and who was her first husband?
      John Axford was born 1722 and one would assume Elizabeth and her first husband would have been born around that time also.

      John & Elizabeth's grandson, Thomas Axford b in Urchfont 1788, arrived in Australia 1822 and he is my ggg grandfather.

      Hope you can help, thanks, Pat
