Death of Tillotson Laycock


In Ann's Birth Record

Baptism Record

In 1765, "Appeared personally Ann Drewry Widow, the Relict of the deceased renounced the Administration as well for herself and as Guardian elected and assigned to Sense, John, Samuel, Robert, and William Drewry, Minors the children and next of kin of the deceased and William Fenton the Administrator within named was duly sworn before me..."


In 1770, five years after Robert's death, Ann married Tillotson Laycock in Broxholme, Lincoln.


One of the witnesses in the above marriage must be Tillotson's father, the other is probably Ann's brother.

Tillotson became stepfather to Anne's children.
Sense, the eldest was about 14 years old, and the youngest, William, only 7.

Ann and Tillotson had a son: John Tillotson Laycock.
Sense Drewry remembers her half-brother, John, in her will.

Tillotson Laycock must have been liked and respected as the name 'Tillotson' is used in the next two generations.

The Family Tree, below is incorrect in respect of the Drewry side but appears to be fine as regards Ann and her family.
Ann and Robert named their daughter for Ann's mother, Sense.


Note that we have discounted the Brant Broughton connection suggested for Robert in the tree above.

Ann's parents' marriage at St Mary le Wigford, 1730.
