Mary Anne Britton nee Maillard circa 1792-1857

I am researching the Maillard family. I have come to a brick wall in England with Mary Anne Maillard born circa 1792 in Ashley Hill, Bristol and married to Daniel Britton born 1784 in Caer Britto, Ashley Hill, Bristol – marriage date 12 Oct 1811. Mary Anne died in 1857 and she was the daughter of William Maillard of Bristol (of a French family). I found this information in Burke’s Family Records (Indexed) and supported to a degree in “Visitation of England and Wales”.

Daniel Britton is in my family tree as a 1st cousin 8x removed to my daughter-in-law.

I have an extensive line of Maillards born in France and migrated to Nova Scotia in Canada and I need to connect this line to a Maillard in England. The expression “of a French family” suggests to me that Mary Anne’s father William was either born in France and moved to England or his parents are French.

I am fairly confident that I am on track with Mary Anne but haven’t proved it as yet. If any one can assist, I would be very grateful.
