Charles Cotterell is possibly one of my 4x great grandfathers (I decided to do this next set of seven "ancestors" just because it appears to fit into the father's line for my paternal grandmother (her mother is known but the father can only be guessed at). Kimpton is a very small village in Hampshire not far from Upper Clatford and Andover.
Charles married Mary Bartlett 31 Dec 1786 at Woodborough, Wiltshire. Charles was baptized 19 Jul 1767 at Beechingstoke son of William Cotterell and Elizabeth Kempton who were themselves married 3 May 1760 at Wilsford near Pewsey. Elizabeth was baptized 27 Jun 1731 at Wilcot daughter of Stephen and Elizabeth Kempton. William father of Charles was buried 5 Jan 1770 at Beechingstoke.
William and Elizabeth baptized three children at Beechingstoke:
William was baptized 24 May 1761
Charles was baptized 19 Jul 1767
Elizabeth was baptized 13 May 1770 and buried 6 Sep 1770 at Beechingstoke
Elizabeth Kempton married a second time to Robert Chandler 12 Jan 1773 at Beechingstoke. Charles would have been just six years old when his mother remarried and this family then appears at Woodborough where Elizabeth's second husband lives).
Charles Coterill married Mary Bartlett 31 Dec 1786 at Woodborough (location for Robert Chandler on the marriage registration). Charles their son was born 1786 at Woodborough according to the 1851 census. Charles, the father, is likely the Charles Cotterell buried at Fittleton 23 Sep 1810. The son Charles married Hannah Alderman 23 Oct 1824 at Kimpton and they baptized two children at Kimpton:
William baptized 12 Jun 1825; married Jane Sherwood 21 Feb 1852 at Kimpton
Mary baptized 2 Jun 1829; married Henry Chandler June quarter 1854 at Kimpton
William Cotterill married Jane Sherwood 21 Feb 1852 at Kimpton and they had four children at Kimpton:
Jane born circa 1854, married Francis Ford mar quarter 1879 at Mere
Ann born circa 1855, married William Henry Fisher dec quarter 1878 Pewsey RD
George baptized 6 Mar 1859; married twice, first Ann Matthews 28 Jun 1879 at Kimpton and Fanny Somner Dec quarter 1887 at Thanet, Kent.
Ellen was born circa 1869
I did try to find a baptism for William Cotterell married to Elizabeth Kempton/Kimpton but will work on that again as well as the baptism for their grandson Charles. Interestingly the Cotterel family appears earlier in the Rawlings family as the eldest daughter of William Rawlins and Mary Ford married Stephen Cotterel 28 Jan 1764 at Enford. Woodford is only ten miles from Enford where the Rawlins family lived. Stephen was perhaps the son of William Cotterel and baptized 8 Jan 1738 at Wilsford near Pewsey (2.5 miles from Woodford and 8 miles from Enford).I did consider that this could have been significant in the naming of my grandmother but I think 100 years later that is unlikely especially given that the Lywood surname of her maternal grandmother would have likely been chosen. More on the Lywood family in a couple of months.
