Hugh Boundy was baptised on 6 May 1727 in Henfield and buried there
on 6 May 1727.
Ann Boundy, my possible 6x Great Grandmother, was born on 30
September 1729 and baptised on 22 October 1729 in Henfield. As
I believe she married
Parsons in 1751. (They have their own page.) Ann was
mentioned in her father's will.
managed to trace a line back to a possible 6x Great Grandmother, Ann
Bound who married in 1751 and settled in Woodmancote, Sussex, and
there I was stuck for a while. She hadn't be baptised in
Woodmancote, and when she married she said she was of Boxgrove, Sussex
and she wasn't baptised there either.
February 2008 I took another look at Ann and using the Sussex marriage
index, tried to work out some possible parents. My first thoughts
were that she might have been the daughter of William Bound and
Mary Richards who had married in Pagham in 1722, but then I found
an entry which mentioned Boundy, and I got to wondering if Ann was a
Boundy rather than a Bound. This led me to consider Richard
Boundy and Elizabeth Cook who had married in Henfield in
1722. A quick check of the IGI didn't reveal anything, but I have
a transcript of the Henfield parish registers at home and was able to
find the 4 children of Richard and Elizabeth. Henfield and
Woodmancote adjoin one another and it seemed reasonable to me that Ann
met her husband whilst a child or young woman, then went away to work,
perhaps in service, in Boxgrove.
I then did a
search of the internet and found the website of
Robert Morris and Linda Catt, and WOW it was all
there, although minus a marriage for Ann born in 1729, whom I now
believe married John Parsons.
I then set
too and typed up the above page, pinching much from Robert and Linda -
thank you. Robert descends down from Ann Zillah Bound,
daughter of Thomas Bound and Eliza.
I can't be
sure that Ann Bound was my ancestor. My Great
Grandfather, William Stillaway was born illegitimate in 1866 to
Eliza Stillaway. She married Henry Silverson in 1872
and I think one of Henry's elder brothers was William's father, but I
have no proof. Henry was the 2x Great Grandson of Ann Bound,
so she is at least my step-6x Great Grandmother
