This week I was in London for a conference and took the opportunity to visit some of the churches in the area associated with my ancestors.
All Hallows Staining
Thomas and Mary’s son Thomas was baptised here and all three were buried here. (Embarrassingly, when I came to add these links I realised that I’d visited the wrong All Hallows church, so I’ve had to use a picture from Wikipedia!)
St Botolph Aldgate
Many of Mary Grisson’s descendants were baptised here. One of her daughters, Mary Buck, married Thomas Williams here in 1810 and their children were baptised here; it was the scene of the alleged abduction of one of them, Esther Harriett, in 1839. To bring things almost full circle to near the beginning of this post, Esther’s brother Thomas married Susannah Harriott Groom at St Botolph Bishopsgate in 1835.
