I'm searching for information on John/James LILLY, born Bishopsgate, London, England who moved to Hereford and married Priscilla EARL at Hereford Catherdral Church in 1721. He later married Ann LAUGHARNE in Pembrokeshire and his son, William LILLY, my gggg grandfather, born 1735, emigrated to Newfoundland in 1763. I am particularly interested in making contact with Mac Mercer who, I believe, may have knowledge of this branch of the LILLY family.

Hello - this is probably way too late to help you, as my Lenhert family are not the closest people.....
Ethel Alvina Lilly Lenhert probably was my grandmother. The way the story goes, Harvey went from Abilene to Penn. around 1915 for school, and fell in love with Ethel while she was working from/at/staying at an orphanage. Moved back to Kansas. I know almost nothing of my grandmother's family, or why she was in an "orphanage". We do have the Hunsberger geneology book. Harvey and Ethel didn't talk about their pasts to kids or grandkids, ergo, we're in the dark. Good Luck!

I have just viewed post by John Anstey who wishes to make contact. I have some info on William Lilly who moved to Nfld and am descended from him. What is source of info that his emigration date was 1763? Do you have any further info on origins of his father James? ( I do have the story of his murder).

Malcolm, I've just come across your 2010 reply to my 2003 post. I've been taking a break but am back on the trail of my Lilly ancestors. I have a copy of William Lilly's will dated 1815 which said he had come to Harbour Grace 54 Years earlier but I now suspect it may have been later than that and from Salem, Mas. rather than direct from Wales. Susan Gentleman has told me that some of his children, including George, were born in Salem. I believe that his father, James (John) came from Bishopsgate in London but I have been unable to find him there. I would love to hear what you know about these Lilly's.

John Anstey, I have a William Lilly in my tree who married Eunice Holbrook in 1842 who I think is connected to your William Lilly in Harbour Grace. Would you please email me a copy of the William Lilly's will to lkasn36@yahoo.com

I have found a deposition given by your William Lilly which mentions his moving from Salem to Harbour Grace with his family shortly after the Battle of Lexington. He was a loyalist it appears.

I've almost finished writing a book on William Owen the smuggler who killed James Lilly at a place named Cae Lilly a few miles from where I live. There was no John - a putative brother - just James and he is variously described as a fencing master, dancing master and teacher of drawing. He married at Llanreithan Church and had 7 children. I can send details if you email me at breverton@hotmail.co.uk. Lilly was quite a rogue, by the way... PS do you have a baptism date for Lilly and was he an only child? And how do you know he moved to Hereford? There is another James Lilly born a few miles away from Priscilla Earl[e] born in 1695 who I thought may have married her. I also cannot find a death date for Priscilla - Lilly was accused of bigamy by his new father-in-law John Laugharne when he married Anne Laugharn[e] but managed to prove that his wife was dead, but records do not exist of the case. His first child William was baptised a couple of months before he married Anne Laugharne. Cheers, T
