Mary Plant widow of James Plant


From on Friday, 25 September, 2009

I am a member of the Plant family, and I wish to publish our history, for circulation amongst family, interested others and societies. Consequently I hope you will provide me with the opportunity to follow up this possibility by putting me in contact with any cousins who have a connection with the Plant family and may find this page
I look forward to receiving from you the necessary details to enable me to make the desired contact.
My research and family knowledge suggests that your record should be amended as follows:
Also aboard the "Golconda" were three further members of the Plant family namely Mary Knight nee Plant, her husband William Knight and their infant daughter Lucy Ann Knight.
James Plant (christened 5.8.1792 at Sibsey, son of Richard Plant/Sarah Waltham, d. 22.5.1880 at Sibsey) and Mary (King) Plant had 10 children
John Christian/Emma Turner had 8 children
You have the wrong wife for William Field son of number 4. Maria Plant, correct details provided.

Thankyou for your help, Marie. It is most appreciated.
