5 illegitimate children

Postby Tempest » Thu Jul 23, 2020 9:29 am

As just mentioned in my intro, I have quite a brick wall in my ancestry which I can’t see a way around and will have to live with her decision.

My ancestor Ann ELLIOTT was born in Sowe (Walsgrave-on Sowe) in 1815 the daughter of Thomas ELLIOTT and Ann PERREY.

Ann had 5 children, sadly for me all illegitimate, I have no idea whether it was the same father for all 5 or 5 different!

But they are Mary b1833, Ann b1839, George b1843 (my line in the tree, he married and moved to Hucknall, Nottingham when the Coventry silk industry went into decline), Jane b1852 and Martha b1955

Ann ELLIOTT eventually married a Thomas WINDLEBORROW in 1872 aged 57, but again I have no idea whether he eventually did the right thing and was the father of all 5, from what I can find (not a lot) it was his 1st marriage too.

I rate myself just above a novice at this so don’t be afraid of insulting my intelligence with any thoughts.thanks for looking anyway.

have you a DNA test done on ancestry does that not give a clue ?
A person should have an opinion on everything, It becomes tact whether you reveal that opinion or not.

Hi Petard, to be honest never given it a thought didn’t realise it could resolve an issue like this? What can DNA give to sort this? If I get a DNA test done on me are you saying It can resolve the male line of my tree? That is impressive!
