Thanks for giving me the info about William. I feel that his parents were William and Ann (probably nee Maul) as they married in 1796. But I have looked on Family Search.org and cannot find a son William christened 1799. I am trying to get to the Oxford Record Office but it is never open when I am off work it is also a long way from where I live. I have also found that William 1799 had a daughter called Mary when he lived in Lighthorne Warwickshire, she had an illegitimate son called William but I cannot find any record of her after he was born in 1842 (his father was named as James Spicer on the birth cert). I don't know if you can help me any further or if you know of anyone else tracing this line of Shirleys. Thanks

I found the 1841 census confusing because of Mary's age, 60, but after a visit to the records office I found that she was actually Williams 2nd wife, his first wife was Elizabeth Gibbs (who was the mother of all of his children) he married her in Barford St Michael in 1822, then Mary Rodwell in 1837 after Elizabeth's death and just to make things more confusing he married another Elizabeth (Knight) in 1847 after Mary's death 1846.

The Mary who was Williams daughter was working as a servant (on a farm) in Chesterton Warwickshire on 1841 census, her baby (William b1842) was fathered by a James Spicer/Spier (I have a birth cert to confirm this) they were not married he was also a servant at Chesterton (Harwood House).

I have also found that Williams father was actually Edward Shirley b1773 of Barford St Michael who was married to Anne (they are both on 1841 census he as a pauper).

I have also traced that Edward's father was William Shirley m Ann Maule and that Edward was born in Barford St Michael. But I am stuck as how to get any further back.

Likely the William Shirley of the following family:

1841 Lighthorne Warw. Census

William Shirley age 40 [not b Warw.]
Mary Shirley age 60 [not b Warw.]
John Shirley age 15 b Warw.
George Shirley age 13 b Warw.
Hannah Shirley age 11 b Warw.
Maria Shirley age 6 b. Warw.

1851 Lighthorne Warw. Census

William Shirley age 52 b Gt Barford WARWICKSHIRE (says Oxon in 1871)
Elizabeth Shirley age 48 b Newton Ferrers, Devon
William Shirley  age 8 grandson b. Lighthorne Warw
