Martha EDWARDS was baptized on 11 October 1723 at Stourton, Wiltshire, England.
11 July 1748

Martha EDWARDS was baptized on 23 January 1721 at Stourton, Wiltshire, England.
She died in 1818 at Stourton, Wiltshire, England.
15 April 1818
She was buried on 15 April 1818 at Stourton, Wiltshire, England; Aged 96 yrs [Attributed to this Martha, rather than the wife of William EDWARDS #1692, due to closeness of age, and the fact that it appears that the other Martha must have died about 1760.].

Mary EDWARDS died in 1820 at Stourton, Wiltshire, England.
7 October 1820
She was buried on 7 October 1820 at St Peter's, Stourton, Wiltshire, England; Aged 74 yrs.3
Other information; She is allocated as the d/o William & Mary more-or-less by a process of elimination. This one most closely matches the stated age at burial. The 1743 baptism was "of West Knoyle", so is considered less likely. She did *NOT* name a daughter Jane, which would be expected if her parents were John & Jane EDWARDS. The Maiden Bradley candidate is allocated elsewhere on the basis of children's names. Not strong evidence, but enough for attribution at this stage.
The same woman is allocated as the mother of two illegitimate sons, one born in Stourton and one in Kilmington. Again, there is flimsy evidence. She had two boys then presumably married their father. There is illegitimacy in the family. It's all a bit speculative.
Mary EDWARDS was baptized on 19 October 1806 at St Mary's, Kilmington, Somerset, England.1
She was aged 10-15 in the 1821 census and lived at Stourton, Wiltshire, England.
She lived at Stourton.

Other information; It is a "best guess" that this is the Mary EDWARDS who married Peter NEWBURY in Kilmington. There is no explicit link to Kilmington, but then there are no other candidates, and EDWARDS was not a common name in Kilmington.
Mary EDWARDS lived at Stourton and presumably Mere, then Kilmington.
Mary EDWARDS died in 1777 at Brewham, Somerset, England.
10 August 1777
She was buried on 10 August 1777 at St Peter's, Stourton, Wiltshire, England; Aged 47 yrs. From Brewham.2
She lived at Stourton.
Other information; It is a 'best guess' that this Mary EDWARDS (dau of Edw & Basil) was the Mary EDWARDS who married John Jefferies in 1762. The calculated age of birth would be 1730, based on the age at death, so it's close but not perfect.

Mary EDWARDS was baptized on 26 October 1746 at Maiden Bradley, Wiltshire, England.
6 May 1771
She married William LAPHAM, son of John LAPHAM and Ann CLEMENTS, on 6 May 1771 at St Mary's, Kilmington, Somerset, England. By banns. Wit: Robert EDWARDS, Thomas ROLES (clerk). Banns has them botp.1
Mary EDWARDS lived at Maiden Bradley and Kilmington.
Other information; Mary EDWARDS who married William LAPHAM in 1771 is allocated as the dau of Thomas & Mary EDWARDS of Maiden Bradley because she had a son named Thomas. There is no other connection to Maiden Bradley. It is possible that she is a different woman. It is possible that Mary EDWARDS #17 who married William FELTHAM was the dau of Thomas & Mary EDWARDS of Maiden Bradley. Mary #17 had sons named John, William and Thomas, among others. There is a closer connection between Maiden Bradley and Kilmington, than MB and Stourton. Flimsy evidence, to be sure.
This allocation is supported by the fact that a witness at the marriage to William LAPHAM was Robert EDWARDS, and the MB Mary had a brother named Robert.
Mary EDWARDS was baptised on 30 April 1797 at Gillingham, Dorset, England.1
31 May 1819
She married John PIKE on 31 May 1819 at Gillingham, Dorset, England. 1819 31-May John PIKE of Stour Provost & Mary EDWARDS otp NB. FHOL has groom "otp". Additional information: by banns, witnesses: George PIKE, John HUNT.2
