Marriage Notes for Edward KNIBBS\Ann TOWNSEND:

Ann and Edward both listed as from the Deddington parish.


Notes for Edward KNIBBS:

I'm not sure if Edward was buried on 9 Aug 1801 or 15 Oct 1801, as both appear in the burials register for Deddington. Jon Malings of the Deddington Online web site has researched a house currently named 'Winmour' in Philcote Street, Deddington. Deeds from those times often identified the house by stating the occupiers on either side. Jon has advised me of the following:

In 1774 and 1790 the house on the south side of Winmour was occupied by Francis Knibbs
In 1792 it was occupied by Edward Knibbs
In 1806 it was Ann Knibbs, widow of Edward.

We believe the house occupied by the Knibbs was No. 179 Philcot Street.

Francis would have been Francis Knibbs, husband of Avis Bates. Edward was most probably their son, married to Ann Townsend.
