Previous:     Section 32 Chapter xx: Mary Ann Wallis & family
Hester GURNETT was the wife of James WALLIS, the mother of George Gurnett WALLIS and the grandmother of Mary Ann WALLIS who married John Thomas BRUSH - my great great grandfather. Which makes Hester my G4-grandmother.
James WALLIS and Hester GURNETT who married in 1803 at St George in the Borough - Southwark
There is no 1841 census entry for Hester WALLIS and the two most likely James entries in Surrey would both involve him being (a) younger than Hester and (b) having remarried. Both are possible but it is equally likely that both James and Hester had died before reaching age 70.
There is a burial of an Esther Wallis in Southwark in 1820, age 45 with, interestingly, her abode being recorded as St John's Westminster. But this age is a few years out from what is believed to be the birth of Hester GURNETT at Dorking in 1772 to George and Susanna.
