    Found what I assume to be the above on FS, however it comes up as William BLOXON and the date is 23rd September 1808. :rolleyes:

    I looked at as many of Rebecca's criminal records asI could find, but no mention of Mother or any other family. Forgot to press reply button yesterday.

    Hi all. My 3xgt grandmother's name is recorded as Rebecca Bloxam in two newspaper accounts of the trial. Her mother is recorded as Ann Bloxham in the petition for clemency. Ann marked her name with an x. The petition was written and the mark witnessed by a Rev. Beresford. The church rector, the curate and three wardens also attested to the mother Ann's good character. That leads me to believe that Ann was well known in the community as was Rebecca before she left for Leicester. Rebecca named her daughters Amelia, Eliza, Jane and Rebecca and her two sons Henry Samuel and William Halwood or William Taylor. They are perhaps named after siblings.

    Hi again. My 3xgt grandmother's name is recorded as Rebecca Bloxam in two newspaper accounts of the trial. Her mother is recorded as Ann Bloxham in the petition for clemency.

Rebecca named her daughters Amelia, Eliza, Jane and Rebecca and her two sons Henry Samuel and William Halwood or William Taylor. They are perhaps named after siblings. Halward and Taylor were both VERY unusual names for boys born in the 1850s in cedar getting camps.
