Transcript of the will of Hugh Sephton

Father (5)
My great grandfather, Hugh Sephton’s 4th great grandson, William Bibby

Hugh Sephton is my 7 times great grandfather, via his daughter, Ruth.  Hugh died in February 1793, and is buried at All Saints, Rainford, Lancashire, England.

Ruth Sephton was baptised at Rainford in 1756, and married William Glover (a husbandman) in 1773.

William and Ruth’s son, Hugh, is my line.  His daughter, Ruth Glover, born in Dalton, near Wigan in 1804 gave birth to my 3 times great grandfather, William Owen Bibby, on the 11 March 1845.

William Owen Bibby and Helen/Ellen Mousdel’s son, Francis Bibby, was born in York Street, St. Helens in 1874 and he married Ellen Cundliffe at St. Peter, Parr, in 1895.

Their son, my great grandfather, William Bibby, was born on the 26 April 1901 in Tickle Street, Parr.
