Carolus (Charles) Cheshire

Note:  His parents names are recorded as Edwardi Chesheere and Margaretae
Died: probably pre-1681
Note: we must remember that the mortality rate in this era was significantly higher for children so when they did have children, they often gave them the same names, hoping one would live long enough to pass on the father's surname.

*John Cheshire
Born abt 1684 England
Note: did not find him in Pontesbury or Wellington. I have been unable to find a real connection between John and these parents - so far. His birthdate seems to fit nicely between Charles and Margaret, but that doesn't mean it's true. I found all the other children's christening dates but his and that is suspicious. I will keep looking and, for now, take the information as is from Ancestral File. Another reason I have trouble with is the fact he didn't name any children after either parent. Though not completely unheard of, it is unusual for this era.
Occupation: Malster
Possibly Married Elizabeth Wingate 1 Oct 1710 St Nicholas, Gloucester, Gloucester, England
Children: Elizabeth, Mary, John, Sarah
Marriage: IGI Film 0855634 Batch M036112 dated 1558-1754
Ancestral File
Margaret Cheshire
Christened 8 Jun 1690 Pontesbury, Shrop, England
Note:  her name is spelled Margret in the record
Christening: IGI Film 0166168 Batch P019051 dated 1538-1812
William Cheshire
Christened 12 Aug 1694 St Chad, Shrewsbury, Shrop, England
Note:  This boy was not on the Family Group Sheet I saw.  I stumbled across him and began to wonder if he is their son - there was no mother listed, only the father being Edward.  If we had a death date for Edward, it may make it easier.
