BUTLEIGH WIVES

All the following gave their birthplace at some time as Butleigh but so far the marriages not traced and the maiden names remain unknown. Some of them may have been widows at marriage and therefore a prior name may be sought in order to find a marriage that gives their maiden name. The date in Bold indicates the year of the census on which they occur. I have put the wives in order of their reported birth years. These birth dates are not always accurate as I have found for the many wives already identified.
