Hi Just wondered if anyone can help me on my ancester Samuel Hunt Twissell born 1814, married to Elizabeth Morgan.

I cannot find his father -- but can find other links to Mary (Hunt) Twissell born c1730 - all from Bisley.

my link is Emma Twissell born 1849

Hi All,
I, too, am interested in locating Bisley/Oakridge/other Twissells. My direct line goes back to William Twissell b c1785 who married Beata Witts in 1821, and possibly previously, Betty (Elizabeth) King in 1804.

My difficulty is that I cannot find a baptism for William and, therefore, do not know who his parents are. When he married Beata Witts, Jacob Twissell was a witness. I should like to learn what relation this was, if possible.

For information, William is my G/G/G Grandfather.

Any information about any of the Twissell family would be gratetfully received because I may be able to resolve some queries by reference to other branches of the family. In return, I would be happy to share the information I have currently with anyone else.

Rebecca, may I e-mail you, please, to see if you have any information that would help me?
Liz

Thanks very much Rebecca

For the marriage details, Jan 1813, of my Bisley ancester Samuel Hunt Twissell b1781 & Eleanor Foreshaw b1786.

I believe he must be descended from Thomas Twissell b circa1726 and Mary Hunt b circa 1730 - thus keeping the Hunt name in the family.

Presumably Samuel is the grandson of Thomas & Eleanor. Unfotunately I do not have any connection confirming the relationship, i.e Samuel's father name and connection info. Facts get harder to find before 1800.

If you have any further connrction information,l I would be very interested.

There certainly seem to be an abundance of Twissells in Bisley in earlier years.

As an asside I have tracked only 3 currently in Stroud area.

My most recent Twissell was Emma Twissell b22/03/1849, my g grandmother. She moved & lived in the London area. My family lost touch withthe Twissell branch in recent generations.

thanks and regards,
Tony Rickard
