Here lies the body of John Sands. He died the 8th September 1784 aged 94 and his wife Elizabeth who died 29th June 1795, aged 81. Buried here too is William, son of William and Anne Sands of this parish, the grandson of the aforementioned John and Elizabeth Sands, who died 28th December 1809 aged 36. Also the last mentioned William Sands who died 12th September 1827 aged 76 and also Catherine his wife who died January 3rd 1844, aged 72 years.
As I read it Dave I would say that Catherine was a second wife looking at the age differential. Anne may have been buried in another parish nearby. I know this area quite well and there are many small country churches names after early celtic saints. Hope this is what you wanted. :)

Hello Jay,

Thanks but that's not exactly what I was after. I don't understand the difference between 'last name' and 'last said' so I have come to this conclusion based on matching calculated birth dates.

John d. 8 Sep 1784 age 94 b. 1690
spouse Elizabeth d. 29 Jun 1795 age 81 b. 1714

they married ??


son William d. 12 Sep 1827 age 76 b. 1751
spouse Ann [THOMAS] d. ? age ? b.

they married ??


grandson of John - William d. 28 Dec 1809 age 36 b. 1773
spouse Catherine d. 3 Jan 1844 age 72 b. 1772

they married ??


Dave

I'm sure the trees have it all wrong. They have William b. 1773 with siblings born 1801 and 1804.

I can't find any of the three marriages.

" last name " = the father not the son and "last said " another reference to William the father. :confused:

Hi Dave

The trees have him married to Elizabeth Wilson b. 1714 - d.1795 in 1746.

This may or may or may not be some help...

Quote from story from Anc. trees.

"Transcript of the Will of John Sands
, Will proved at Llandaff 14 April 1785
In the name of God amen. I John Sands of the parish of Llandough near Cowbridge in the County of Glamorgan yeoman being well in body and of sound mind memory and understanding praise be to God Do make and ordain this my last will and Testament in manner following/ that is to say/ I give and bequeath to the Revd William Willis of Gileston in the said County the sum of Four Hundred Pounds to be paid him within one month next after my decease In trust nevertheless That he the said William Willis his Executors or administrators do and shall lay out the same at Interest on the best Security and Rate of Interest he can, and shall pay such Interest as the same shall be received to my beloved wife Elizabeth Sands for and during the term of her natural Life in case she continues unmarried and from and after her decease or marriage which shall first happen I give and bequeath the Interest of Two Hundred Pounds part of the said sum of Four Hundred Pounds to my son William Sands during the term of his natural life (it being my intention that the same shall be a provision for him for life) and from and after his decease I give and bequeath the said sum of Two Hundred Pounds to my Grandaughters Mary and Elizabeth Hooper the daughters of William Hooper deceased to be equally divided between them share and share alike when and as they respectively attain the age of twenty one years and in case either of them shall happen to dye before the attainment of that age then the said Two Hundred Pounds shall be paid to the Survivor of them on the attainment of the age aforesaid and I Do Direct that the Interest thereof shall be laid our in their maintenance and Education during their minority. I give and Bequeath all the rest and residue of my personal Estate that I shall Die possessed of or entitled unto to my said wife Elizabeth Sands for her sole use and Benefit for ever and I Do hereby nominate and appoint my said wife Elizabeth sole Executrix of this my last will and Testament hereby revoking all former wills by me made and declaring this to be my last In Witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and Seal this fifth day of July one Thousand and Seven Hundred and Eighty Three.

The mark of John x Sands"

Thanks Geoff.

That's a good bit to add to my tree.

One tree had Ann's name as THOMAS but I can't find any of the marriages apart from John to Ellen WILLIAMS in 1836.

Probably going to need the parish reg' for the marriages... plenty of info on offspring in FS & IGI. William's wife just says Ann, no surname.
