Initially this blog was titled Sarah Woodcock the wife of William Cheatle and they married at Castle Donnington and all of their children (known to me) were baptized there. However, the apprenticeship records show that William continued as a Master Taylor at Castle Donnington past 1795 so this two are not the parents of my Sarah Cheatle. Hence the new title "Sarah, unknown wife of William Cheatle." I do know that my Sarah Cheatle (wife of William Welch, mother of Ann Welch married to Henry Christopher Buller and my 2x great grandparents) was likely the Sarah Cheatle baptized at Ashby de la Zouch in 1795 daughter of William and Sarah Cheatle. There the mystery begins as I am unable to locate further information on this couple (my 4x great grandparents).
That her name was Sarah is revealed by the baptismal record. Also Sarah (Cheatle) Welch names one of her daughters Sarah. Ann (Sarah's daughter) names one of her daughters Sarah. Edwin Denner Buller names one of his daughters Sarah. Coincidence, I have no idea really but Edwin is found on the 1861 census with his grandmother Sarah (Cheatle) Welch who was by then widowed. Occasionally my grandmother did speak about her father's family but not a great deal. Little items, her father served in the military and that record was finally found (he served in the socalled First Boer War). He had a leg injury and the records bear this out.
But what of Sarah wife of William Cheatle? That is still hidden from me and will probably remain that way until my access to the Leicestershire Parish Records improves. I have read through the Ashby de la Zouch records from the mid 1700s to the early 1800s. I think they must be from somewhere else coming to Ashby de la Zouch for whatever reason. Further access to records may help with placing William and Sarah Cheatle parents of Sarah Cheatle married to William Welch.
