    Hello,
    There have been rumours of potential relation to the Russells.
    I see there was another thread about this too.
    Someone mentioned there were potentially 3 illegitimate children.
    One of them named Mary.
    I've traced Mary Russell in our family tree 1794 - 1874.
    Are you able to find any record of this?

    kind regards
    Janice

    Hi Janice and welcome to the Forum. We could probably do with a few more details on your Mary, such as do you have a baptismal record for her and if so where was she baptised, any marriage record, census records, etc. Looking for a Mary RUSSELL baptised c1794 in Bedfordshire, which may not of course be where your Mary originated but I have used as a parameter because the RUSSELL family seat was at Woburn, there is a William RUSSELL married to an Elizabeth who is having children at Ridgmont - very close to Woburn - in the relevant timescale including a Mary in 1796 and a John in 1799. Do post any details you have for your Mary and I am sure somebody on the Forum will be able to help.
