William Dancocks of Kempsey

One of Ari’s 6x great-grandfathers was William Dancocks. He was born in about 1756 in Kempsey, Worcestershire, the son of Elizabeth Dancocks, and baptised on 16 October 1761 at St Mary’s Church.

There are no records of William until his marriage in 1790 to Nancy Martin.

There is a record of a William Dancocks being sentenced to three months’ imprisonment for poaching, but the criminal register gives his age as 25, so maybe a grandson?

The 1841 census shows that William was still working as an agricultural labourer at the age of 85.

William died in December 1847, and was buried at St Mary’s. His death certificate and burial record gives his age as 96.
