1813 Marriage St Michael Church, Bradford on Avon Chapel of Atworth. Marriage Register, 21 Jan 1813 John Underwood, Labourer Ann Stone, Servant Witness: Thomas Stone Witness: William Gibbs

Possible Confusion

This JOHN and ANN Underwood married at ATWORTH, Wiltshire in 1813, and had a son named George Underwood born in ATWORTH in 1819

This is NOT the JOHN and ANN Underwood who married at POTTERNE, Wiltshire in 1810, and had a son named George Underwood born at POTTERN

The two George Underwood's are listed at different places in both the 1841 and the 1851 census.

1841 UK Census George Underwood from ATWORTH is listed living with his wife. George Underwood from POTTERNE is listed still living with his parents.

1861 UK Census George Underwood from ATWORTH is listed with his wife and children. George Underwood from POTTERNE is still listed with his parents.

Possible Confusion

Atford, Wiltshire and Atworth, Wiltshire are the same place!

For clarity reasons, the word 'Atworth ' is prefered.

The following information is taken from the home page of the Atworth Village Website http://www.atworth.org.uk/

The famous mapmaker and cartographer John Speed (1552 - 1629) shows Atworth on his maps of Wiltshire, but it is named as "Atford". Later, in 1773, the mapmakers Andrews and Dury, published a map of Wiltshire in which Atworth appeared as both "Atford" and as "Attworth".

The "At" component of the name has been associated with the word "oat", which may imply a role in the service of grain markets of the time.

When or where there may have been a ford in the village is not known at present.

By the time the Ordnance Survey produced its first maps in the early 19th century, the village was almost exclusively referred to as "Atworth".

Future Research Needed

There is little else known about Ann Stone. At her marriage a witness is listed as Thomas Stone. This is probably her father but there is no direct proof of this so he may also have been a brother.
