This blog is about the Wise or Wiseman family from Aylesbury Buckinghamshire.
One of My 5x Great Grandmothers was Elizabeth Wiseman and she was born on the 28 January 1741. She was baptised at St Mary’s Aylesbury on the 5th April 1741.
Elizabeth’s parents were Richard & Mary WISEMAN, Labourer.
Elizabeth married George Shouler on 7 Feb 1762 at St Mary’s Aylesbury 1762. The witness to their marriage was George Vickers and Isaac Wheeler.
From looking at the Aylesbury St Mary Parish registers, the only marriage that fits for Richard and Mary is:
Richard WISE of Aylesbury, Labourer & Mary WALTON of Aylesbury and they were married on the 13 Jan 1729. My guess is these are Mary’s parents.
A Richard Wise, alias Wiseman, labourer was buried on the 18 May 1753
A Mary Wise, widow was buried on the 2 July 1782
The other children of Richard and Mary Wise were:
- Hester Wise born 18 Jan 1730 baptised 25 Jan 1730
- Ann Wise born 19 Jan 1732 baptised 23 Jan 1732
- Mary Wise born 21 Aug 1735 baptised 22 Aug 1735
- William Wise born 15 Dec 1743 baptised 25 Dec 1743
