So That's Where I Get It From

Blog Chart 009: Elizabeth READ (1749 – 1829) & William WOOD (1751 – 1815)

Elizabeth Read (1749 -1829) & William Wood (1751 – 1815)

This is the line of descent from Cozens Read’s daughter Elizabeth. I find I have a soft spot for her husband William, since I discovered that he was riding home on his horse from Ashendon to Chearsley and they found him dead in a ditch!! Poor chap, all alone. Did he fall from his horse? Have a heart attack? He was something like a special constable so was he set about by robbers? It’s all very intriguing!!
