ERNLE, EARNLY etc Richard Carruthers-Zurowski all instances in Dilton and surrounding parts of Westbury Leigh parish and as relating to the family at Purton and Cricklade and elsewhere in Wiltshire This family was supposedly founded by Thomas Ernle (bur. 1595 at Westbury Leigh) who is reported in Burke's Landed Gentry as the founder of the Bremeridge in Dilton line of the Ernle family. Among other children baptised at WL from 1578-1589 was a son Banister Ernle baptised 1587/8 as a son of Thomas Ernle, the son or grandson of Thomas bur. 1595. Later in Purton, my ancestor was Thomas Ernle, gent., of Purton, died 1694 will same who named his grandson Banister Ernle, as well as his son-in-law, Robert Major (Major alias Phillips), gent., of Purton as his executor. This man was married to Cisalia Ernle, gentlewoman, by licence at Malmesbury Abbey on 18 Aug. 1672. Their first child was my ancestress Cis (1672/3-1757), who married first a Mr Holliday and second to William Large, of Purton (1679-1747). These are my ancestors. The Ernle family of Bremeridge in Dilton was probably allied by marriage to that of Lambe of (East) Coulston, Wilts. as a Thomas Ernle married Praxeda Lambe, daughter of John Lambe of Coulston, gent., by his wife Cicely, daughter of Robert Brown of Walcot, Northants. They had issue at least one child Thomas Ernle. The Thomas Ernle of Purton, gent., mentions his daughter Practsey (variant of Praxeda) in his 1694 will (Archdeaconry of Wiltshire). Interesting the will of the founder of the Bremerigde line of the Ernle family, Thomas Ernle, appears to have been proved with him described as Thomas Ernelye of Brunbridge, Westbery, Cricklade, Wilts. 1595. Brunbridge, Westbery is likely to be identical with Bremeridge in Dilton in the parish of Westbury (Leigh), Wilts., while Cricklade lies next to Purton, Wilts., which makes a nice link between the two lines from the point of view of a narrower geographical focus. The onomastic similarities in the two families are also highly suggestive. I would welcome additional information.
EYERS / EYRES Dave Carter 1750 - 1880
FERRIS Robert Wilkinson 1750 - 1841 My direct ancestor John Ferris was born in the Westbury district (most probably Dilton Marsh) about 1791. He married Hesther Pearce of Corsley on 24 April 1812 at Dilton Marsh. They eventualy moved to Warminster and raised a family there. I would like to know more about John and in particular his parents and siblings.
FERRIS Marj Hawkins 1800-1900 Looking for links with Scotts family to Baileys and Witheys.Piety Scott 1836-1878 married John Ferris. Her parents were Samuel and Mary Scott.
