In Reply to: Re: Mary DU PRE married Abraham MURCOTT, Birmingham, England 1761 by William Murcott of 406

Hi William

This is information from one branch of the Murcott family line - the Tilmouths. Their information is that Abraham married Mary Du Pre, whose family were Huguenot refugees - and there is even an anecdote which says that Abraham glimpsed her ankle as she alighted from a carriage and fell in love with her!

However, it is true that most of the ancestral lines show him marrying a Mary Izon. Elizabeth McIntyre, who has done lots of research on this line (you may have been in contact with her) has been unable to find Mary du Pre in her researches. She suggests that she could be the same woman .... that Mary du Pre was married before and became Mary Izon, and that Abraham was her second husband. Whatever the case, it is a bit of a puzzle!

Which branch of the line are you from? Do contact me direct on katy@dsl.pipex.com, as I would be happy to share my researches.

Katy
