So That's Where I Get It From

Blog Chart 002: William READ (1736 – 1803) & Mary POLLARD (1742 – 1821)

William Read (1736 – 1803) & Mary Pollard (1742 – 1821)

This is the line of Cozens Read’s eldest son, William and his wife. There is a slight problem with this couple!! You will see from my notes below that I am not entirely sure this is the correct marriage for William. I am actually thinking that this Mary Pollard is a second wife or even William’s son’s wife. I haven’t yet checked this further and really need to sort it out!!

Descendants of William READ (1736 – 1803)

Generation No. 1

1. WILLIAM4 READ (COZENS3, WILLIAM2, JOHN1) was born 1736 in Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire, and died 1803 in Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire. He married MARY POLLARD 07 Feb 1782 in Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire. She was born 1742 in Oakley, Buckinghamshire, and died 1821 in Lower Winchendon, Buckinghamshire.

Notes for WILLIAM READ:
I am not entirely sure that Mary Pollard is the wife of William or is maybe his second wife!! For this marriage he would have been about 46 years old. His son William born in 1761 means that he was born 21 years before William senr. married Mary Pollard.

From details given to me by others, it would seem that it is the William Read (William senr.’s son) born in 1761 who married Mary Pollard in 1782 and that William junr. and his wife Mary had the two children, Mary born 1783 and William born 1784. I really need to check this and if this is correct, then who did William senr. marry?

Children of WILLIAM READ and MARY POLLARD are:
2. i. MARY5 READ, b. 1783, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire; d. 1850, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire.
ii. WILLIAM READ, b. 1784, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire1; d. 1785, Lower Winchendon, Buckinghamshire2.
Generation No. 2

2. MARY5 READ (WILLIAM4, COZENS3, WILLIAM2, JOHN1) was born 1783 in Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire, and died 1850 in Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire. She married JOHN MOORES 08 Aug 1804 in St. Mary Magdalene, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire. He was born 1783, and died 1855.

  1. Interested in your research as I have a 6xg grandfather Cozins Read born 24 May 1706 Caversham whose daughter Catherine born 3 May 1745 Lower Winchendon ID 1028137 married Jeremiah Pollard born 1745 Forest Hill Oxfordshire. Marriage took place on 19 Oct 1775 St. Nicholas Lower Winchendon. I have always understood that it was this marriage that joined the Reads and Pollards.

    • Hallo again Enid, Yes, it was this marriage that joined the Reads with the Pollard family. Jeremiah and Katherine were the first of three such marriages between each of their siblings. You will see the details in my other comment to your other post. Did you know of the other two Pollard/Read marriages? Do you have any Pollard Wills? I have one Pollard Will, not to hand at the moment, so cannot say which one, but I will dig it out.

      Let’s keep in touch more, it would be nice. ;-)

      Kind regards,

      Christine (rootsresearcher)

      • Hallo Hazel, I’m not sure if you are writing to Enid, or me but using her name in error for mine? If you are writing to Enid, hopefully if she is following the comments she will see what you have said. As Enid is a cousin to me through her links with the Pollards, then she will also be a cousin to you too. If it is Enid you are writing this comment to, and she does not get in touch, let me know and I will put you in touch with each other.

        This is so exciting, I have found several new cousins for me and my man Paul through this blog. It’s wonderful! ;-)

        Kind regards,

        Christine

  2. Hello Christine,
    I must say, I love this site. Everyone seems to have such enthusiasm. Enid has not contacted me as yet, so, yes I would like to get in contact with her. At the moment I am trying to research Barbara Foxs’ parents. It seems they came from Ireland between 1834 and 1836 which is about 9 years before the potato famine. But not knowing what part of Ireland they came from is proving a stumbling block.They had two children born in Ireland too! I will keep trying.
    I found a will on this sight that someone bequeathed something to a female Pollard. I thought I had printed it,but did’nt. I don’t seem to be able to find it!!!! Perhaps another senior moment!

    kind Regards

    • Hallo Hazel, Thanks for popping back and for your compliments about the blog. :-) Much appreciated! I will see if I can put you in touch with Enid. I haven’t needed to do any research in Ireland but from things I have read, I think many records for Ireland have been lost/damaged over time so there is not quite so much available to try to check. With regard to the Will on this blog that you saw mentioning a bequest to female Pollard I would think it was probably the Will of Rachel Read or the Will of Ann Cozens or the Will of Michael Read. You will find these by clicking on the Amanuensis Monday link in the menu on the right. I have so many Wills I can’t remember offhand who received what from whom so sorry I can’t be more specific than that at the moment. (This is another thing on my To Do list, itemising what bequests were made by whom to who)!!

      I hope you continue to find things of interest here. You can copy and save to your hard disc any docs, photos etc., that particularly interest you.

      Kind regards,

      Christine
