Help figuring out a kinship

+2 votes
82 views

Richard Bury, a Quaker from Bristol, England left a will, written in 1730 in which he names my ancestor, Hannah Watson, the daughter of James Cullimore (her marriage record says her father's name was John). She was also a Quaker.

She is named as his "kinswoman".

Richard apparently had no children and named his nieces and nephew and their children in his will. All are named as either "kinsman" or "kinswoman" and all but two he names as the children of his siblings, Mark and Mary. One of those two others (John Moore) is easy to identify as the deceased child of his sister, Mary (Bury) Moore.  

The other is my ancestor, Hannah (Cullimore) Watson.  I am thinking that she may be a niece, daughter of another Bury sister who married James (or John) Cullimore.  She could be a great-niece, however, Richard only named nices and nephews as his kinfolk and named their children (his great-nieces and great-nephews just by name).

But I cannot seem to find anything to prove the kinship, whatever it may be.

I'm sorry I can't confirm the kinship. Instead here is a nice source for Richard Bury: https://www.bristol.ac.uk/Depts/History/bristolrecordsociety/publications/brs25.pdf

Page 182 has Richard Bury and his wife Hannah living in the Parish of St Phillip and St Jacob. The year is 1696. They have no children. They have five servants listed: Daniel James, Benjamin Bush, Grace Busby, Ann Hayes and Thomas Matthews.

I couldn't see a James Cullimore in 1696 but there are others. Page 80 has Thomas Cullimore and Thonas Cullimore junior with his wife Katherine and children Thomas, John, Edward, William and Ann.

Page 83 has a Mary Cullimore with children Elizabeth and John.
