Family History


Born: 1741 Wisborough Green

Married: 1772 Wisborough Green William Williams Jr

Died: 1800 Wisborough Green


Ann Luff was baptised 2nd February 1741 in Wisborough Green, the daughter of Richard Luff and Jane Wade. Ann married 28 June 1772 Wisborough Green William Williams Jr. She was buried 7 June 1800 in Wisborough Green aged 59.

I have only found two children born to Ann and William. Their son was named Richard after Annís father. Richard Williams married 10 February 1801 in Kirdford Elizabeth Champion. Six weeks later Elizabeth Williams from Kirdford was buried 23 March1801 aged 21, with a funeral sermon given. Had Elizabeth died in childbirth? I havenít found a record of any baptism. Richard seems to have stayed in Kirdford as he is given as from the parish when he remarried 12 April 1803 Bethiah Puttock. Their first child Elizabeth was baptised there the following year but two subsequent children were baptised in Wisborough Green; William in 1807 and another Elizabeth in 1815. This Elizabeth also died early, in 1821 After Richardís death Bethiah looked after her widowed father Jonathan Puttock in Strood, Kirdford. Her son William Williams was also living in Strood with his family. On the 1851 census she is recorded as Bethie, which Iím sure is how she was called.
