My ancestor is the late Peter Heiley a Whittaker of Broad Wier, marriage unknown the year 1633 Bristol Joane Yeomans 29/5/1623 died 21/12/1687 Bristol Castle Precinets. Peter died 12/7/1675 Bristol. Their daughter a twin Joane Heiley bap.1649 could be wrong married a Thomas Pearce (varied name) Grocer on the 5/2/1670 Bristol Quaker he changed to this Religion to marry Joane Heiley date of his death unknown. Joane Pearce died 19/8/1702 Bristol. Some of this family came from Poole Dorset, Upton House Dorset.

Good Morning Solidrock2 thanks for your help, I have found several dates for Peter Heiley and Joane Yeomans marriage 1633 Bristol Glos. but I haven't found this record. So many other researchers post different dates online. Peter Heiley is also listed as a Widower before Joane Yeomans marriage I wonder if he married her twice as I came across that she was only 10 years old when she married Peter Heiley.:cautious:
