Family of William Odgers


William Odgers was the fifth child of Mary Jewell and Allen Odgers, and was baptised on the 19th May 1779, in the Parish of Wendron.

After studying the I.G.I., I discovered that William followed his older sister Christian to the Parish of Constantine. They may nave even travelled their together, I am not sure. On the 28th May 1814, in the Parish of Constantine, William married Mary Bath. At this stage I have no discovered when Mary was born, or who her parents were.

A further search discovered that William and Mary had 6 children, all shown as being baptised in the Parish of St Ithians. The Parish of St Ithians is the north of the Parish of Constantine, and borders the Parish of Wendron. The deatils of their children are;

Jane Odgers - baptised 13th December 1815
Betsey Odgers - baptised 15th September 1817
Thomas Odgers - baptised 15th October 1820
Mary Ann Odgers - baptised 25th March 1822
John Odgers - baptised 11th July 1825
Emma Odgers - born approximately 1831

At this stage I have not been able to determine whether any of the above children married, whether they had any children of their own, or what became of them. If anyone has anymore information about them, or you feel you may be one of their descendants, please contact me at bruce@jewell.asn.au
