Family of William Jewell


William Jewell was the first child of William Jewell and Grace Tonkin, and was baptised on the 26th November 1799, in the Parish of Crowan.

According to the I.G.I., William married Blanche Caple on the 12th August 1821, also in the Parish of Crowan. Blanche was the daughter of John and Elizabeth Caple, and was baptised on the 6th November 1791.

A subsequent search of the I.G.I., has found that William and Blanche had 5 children. They were;

Elizabeth Jewell - baptised 6th July 1823
William Jewell - baptised 25th September 1825
William Jewell - baptised 12th November 1828
John Jewell - baptised 22nd February 1834
Jane Jewell - baptised 14th March 1838

At this stage I have not attempted to locate any of the above children married or had children of their own. If anyone has anymore information or if you feel you may be a descendant of theirs, please contact me at bruce@jewell.asn.au.
