About William Redfern

There are a number of trees online which sport conflicting information There is a suggestion that there were 2 Williams, both sons of George Redfern and Mary Wragg, one born in 1791, the other in 1795. There are 4 wives involved - Elizabeth Roberts, Mary Wild, Margaret Middleton and Ann Dakin.

I have tried to establish if there were 2 Williams and for the time being have decided that there was only one who married 3 times -

1st 29 Oct 1815 - Margaret Middleton

2nd 30 Dec 1822 - Elizabeth Roberts

3rd date not known - Ann Dakin

a son William was bapt. 12 Feb 1837 by William Redfern and Ann.

There was also a marriage on 6 Nov 1837 - Mary Wild to a William Redfern but as the bapt. of William in 1837 names his mother as Ann I have concluded that this William didn't marry Mary Wild.

Ann was the wife in 1841 and 1851
