Parents of Thirza Austey (born around 1852 in Gloucestershire, England)

+5 votes
According to a wedding record, Thirza's father was William Austey. However, I am not able to find any accurate records that show his date of birth (and his wife). Also, some records of Thirza show a misspelling of her first name.

In addition, Thirza was widowed before marrying Guy Spencer. Her previous husband's surname was Hall.

A very interesting question that is difficult to give a finite answer, because of spelling variations.

However, a Thirza Anstee was a servant in Bitton in 1871.

A Thirza Anstee married an Austin Hall in 1872, Holy Trinity, Bristol. her father's name William Anstee. (

A Thirza & Austin Hall can be found living in Bitton, Gloucestershire in 1881, with their family (misspelt as Hale).

Austin Bush Hale    27 (born Bitton)
Thirza Hale    28 (born Doynton)
Kate Hale    9
Emily Hale    7
William Robert Hale   4

An Austin Hall age 30, died 1884. (Keynsham 5c/467 q March 1884).

There is no birth registered in Gloucestershire 1850-1855 of a Thirza A****.

There is a family tree that may be helpful which has Thirza as the daughter of a William Anstee (1816 Doynton) & Harriet Reynolds (1818 Doynton). They appear in Census, as Ansty, Anstie, Anstee, but the 1861 Census, has Thirza listed as Thirza Anstee.

Both Thirzas were born in 1852 to a William. They're likely to be the same Thirza.
