Diana Collins (1774 - 1834)

52 Ancestor Challenge - Challenge 33

Blake, King, Coleman, Pearce, Farmer, Mary (unknown), Lambden, Sarah (unknown), Knight, Ellis, Knight, Vincent, Butt, O'Ford, Arnold, Molton, Cotterell, Bartlett, Alderman, Shepherd, Sherwood, Elizabeth (unknown), Happerfield, Collins, Rawlings, Tanner, Dove, Morgan, Lywood, Lanham, unknown, Peck, Pincombe, Charley, Rowcliffe, Pearse, Rew, Moggridge, Siderfin, Kent, Gray, Hilton, Cobb, Sproxton, Routledge, Tweddle, Routledge, Routledge, (unknown) Buller, unknown, Beard, Hemsley, Welch, Brockhouse, Cheatle, Woodcock, unknown Taylor, unknown, Harborne, Lewis, Roberts, Croxall, Lawley, unknown

Diana Collins married John Happerfield 21 Nov 1793 at South Tidworth. Their daughter Sarah married  John Shearwood 10 Jul 1821 at South Tidworth. Their daughter Jane married William Cotterill 21 Feb 1852 at Kimpton.

She is likely the Dinah Collins baptized 6 Mar 1774 at Collingbourne Kingston daughter of John Collins. This John Collings married Sarah Potter 9 Oct 1769 at Collingbourne Kingston. Since Dinah was 60 years of age when she died 9 Nov 1834 at South Tidworth this baptism fits very well. Plus the eldest daughter was named Sarah.

Collingbourne Kingston is  4.2 miles from North Tidworth  and 5 miles from South Tidworth. It is 7 miles from Kimpton and 8 miles from Ham. It is also nine miles from Woodborough.

Children baptized to John and Sarah Collings at Collingbourne Kingston:

Hester baptized 12 Aug 1770
Sarah baptized 16 Feb 1772
Dinah baptized 6 Mar 1774
John baptized 26 Jan 1777
Charles baptized 6 Jun 1779
Daniel baptized 12 Aug 1781

Trying to find further information  on John Collings/Collins and Sarah Potter was not yet possible.This ends my seven weeks on the possible natural ancestors of my grandmother Blake. I was unable to determine the surname of the wife of John Shearwood/Sheerwood/Sherwood. At a later date I may be able to do that. The next 52 Ancestor Challenge will be one of my Routledges, the third and last 4x Routledge great grandparent.
