Did You Know?

  • Mary Benrose surname is spelled 'Benrose' in the marriage register entry but she spelled it 'Bemrose' in her signature.
  • According to the Haberdashers' Hall family tree Ann Yaxley was daughter of Mary Benrose and a Mr Yaxley, sister of Mary Yaxley who married Matthew Brannan, and niece to Eliz Bemrose who married Edward Hymas. I haven't been able to find baptisms for Ann or either of the Marys, although a Mary Yaxley was one of the witnesses at the weddings of Ann, Mary and Elizabeth.

Possibly the Same Person?

- Yaxley

The Haberdashers' Hall family tree says Mary died in 1817; the Elizabeth Bemrose who was sister to Mary Bemrose was a couple of years older than the unnamed Yaxley.
