Anecdote - Musings and Reasonings

Research note (complicated): A William ALDIS and Elizabeth FRANCES were the only couple named ALDIS in Bramfield who were having children Chr at this time. Marianne, William and John. John was said to be ALDIS or FRANCES, and was the first Chr (in 1789) so may have been a child born to Elizabeth before the couple married. And looking at his age (according to the dates aged 6 when Chr), could have been born well before the other 2. No marriage in IGI

Burials in Bramfield NBI reveal a William aged 86 buried in 29th May 1826, and an Elizabeth aged 74 buried in 1820. The 2 children listed above could be Mary Ann buried 1819 aged 27 and William buried 1795 aged 6. There are burials of people who could be William's parents but back them no ages were recorded, so impossible to even guess.

The 1826 burial of William was reported as occuring in May in Branfield, and he was a 'gent', aged 87. His Will confirms his children's names, places and occupations.

Commemoration

His death was commemorated by an obituary in the an unknown place newspapers in 1852 John aged 69, for 36 years the High Constable of the District.13
