Death of Sense Drewry


The only birth or christening records for Edward Wilcockson between 1750 and 1770 are three which appear to be for the same person born and christened on 7th November 1754 in Newark Upon Trent, Nottingham, father: William, mother Ann.

According to IGI, Edward Drewry WILKINSON was christened on 1st May 1792, Father Edward, mother Sense in Saint Martin, Lincoln, the same church where Sense Drewry and Edward Wilcockson were married in 1786.
IGI have not transcribed the name correctly.


It is likely that Edward died before his mother since he is not mentioned in her will.

Similarly, her husband Edward is not mentioned in the will, and it is likely that he too predeceased his wife.

Another IGI record shows that an Edward WILKINSON died in Peterborough in 1799. This is probably Sense's husband Edward Wilcockson.
(Sense died in Peterborough also.)
