Hey- Went on to find out about Wagers of
Gloucester and found your message. An
ancestor of mine, William Moreton of Cherington,
Glouc. (b. 6/8/1709) married a Hannah Wager
(b. 3/10/1711/12) of Stroud, Glouc. on 10/12/1732.
I believe her parents were William Wager and
Sarah Naish. I got this info fromone of the
Mormon church's centers, where I discovered they
had done quite a bit of work in parish churches
in Gloucestershire. Hope this helps. Would love to
hear if you're able to trace any further ancestry
of Hannah Wager, if it falls within your research.
Thanks- Dave Hall

Thanks, Dave, for responding. We are sure to be related but I don't know how much good we can do each other. Eliza Wager, b: 1807, married Joseph Tranter of Stroud and became my g-g-granparents. Eliza's parents were Richard, b: 1779, in Paineswick and Sarah Selwin. Richard's parents were Samuel and Mary? who married in 1776. Samuel's parents were Jeremiah and Elizabeth? (No dates)
Jeremiah's father was Thomas (no other info).
Most of this is undocumented. I sent a copy of this page off to my cousin Marcia in British Columbia. She may have more info and I know would love to hear from you. She's a first class researcher. (
Your material goes back farther than mine but
if you have any history more recent Marcia
would love to hear it.

Thanks again. Come back to me if want. I have a few more details you might want if you think there is a connection.

Classification: Query
Surnames: Wager, Apperly
Looking for family of a Mary Wager who seems to have married John Apperly in 1783, I believe in Woodchester, Gloucestershire, England; as you all say, though, the Wagers appear to be in Painswick. I think these people were the parents of George Apperly, born in Woodchester about 1789. Mary may have been John's second wife. I guess Mary to have been born about 1760, but it may have been 10-15 years earlier. George ended up in Stroud/Rodborough and belonged to the Rodborough Tabernacle.
