I'm researching these names, all from Bisley. Jeremiah Workman born c1683 was my 7x great grandfather. If anyone has any information about these families, I'd love to hear from you.

My husbands family all came from the Bisley area. He traces his ancestry back in Bisley to Sarah Restal-Baker, the daughter of Matthias Baker who lived at Frampton Place. Sarah was the illegitimate daughter of Matthias Baker and Beata Restal.
Sarah married Richard Blanch in Bisley in 1788. My husband is descended through them.
I would love to know what interest you have in the Blanch family.

Hi Chris, thanks for replying!
My 3xgreat grandmother was Maria Workman. Whilst researching my tree, I made contact with a second cousin whose research shows that Maria was the daughter of Richard Workman b1777 and Sarah Blanch b1774. I've had a look at the LDS site and can see that they married in 1804 and had a daughter - Maria - born in 1811 which ties in with my research so I'm fairly happy with this. My cousin's research also shows that Sarah's parents were Richard Ireland and Betty Blanch who married in 1775, Sarah having been born a year earlier in 1774. I haven't been able to corroborate this part so any help would be gratefully appreciated!
Regards, Judy

Hello Judy

Nice to hear from you.

Yes, I think Sarah must have been illegitimate as only her mothers
name, Betty is shown in the parish register. Presumably Betty married
Richard Ireland after this in 1775.

Betty Blanch was the daughter of Thomas Blanch and Hester King and was
born in 1748. She and Hugh, my husband are descended from the great
granparents of Betty, Thomas Blanch and Elizabeth Veysey who were
married in 1662.
There is a will for Thomas who was a broadweaver, dated 1710.

I have lots of information on the Blanch's if you need it.

Where did the Workmans come from originally?

Best Wishes

Chris

Hi Chris,

Apologies for the delay in replying.

That fits in with the information that I have - Thomas Blanch b1706 and Hester King b1721 (married in 1736) were Betty's parents. I only have Thomas' father, also Thomas, and Hester's father, Daniel King b1694 but as I say, I haven't verified this.

As far as I'm aware, the Workman family were also from Bisley although I haven't gone much further than Richard's father, James Workman b1745, again unverified.

I'd love to have further information on the Blanch family. My email address is jayaydeeathotmail.co.uk (replace at with @).

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Judy
