Abraham Hurst


BIRTH ABT 1735  Houghton, Hampshire, England

DEATH 1794  Broughton, Hampshire, England

Starting Ancestry Synopsis;

Abraham Hurst was born in 1735 in Houghton, Hampshire. He was married three times and had two sons and one daughter. He died in 1794 in Broughton, Hampshire, at the age of 59.

The three marriages are questionable with one being "First Wife" due to him being a widower when he married Martha May. Another wife is Catharine Edward as there are a number of Ancestry Trees suggesting her as a wife.

It is entirely feasible that there are two Abraham Hurst in the same area, and the one that married Martha May had a first wife other than Catharine Edward. Another option, is that he deserted Catharine Edward, lied about being a Widower, and then married Martha May illegally. There is a Last Will and Testament which refers to three children, Matha, Elizabeth, and Abraham.

This will attempt to add some clarity.

 Surname : Hurst

 Introduction - Explanation 

Discovery

I have decided to split the information about this person into two main sections. The first is discovery. Generally the first discovery is from Ancestry Trees and Hints. For the avoidance of repetition, I will not repeat that in the Discovery section for each person. Sometimes the lead maybe from MyHeritage, or other similar genealogy sites. Where that is the case, I will state so. Another lead could be DNA, including Ancestry's ThroughLines, again to be stated.

However, the main point of the discovery section is to create something of a story for the person and his or her life. A  brief synopsis, sometimes over and above that created by Ancestry's AI.

Data Sheet

The next part is the Data Sheet. Designed to be the collection of all the records, and information found about the person. It can include records already shown in the Discovery Section, for completeness of the Data Sheet. However, although the template is structured for lots of possible information, I am sure that there will be times when there will be many gaps, which will be left so, just in case more information comes to light at a later time.

Structure

The structure of the family website is multifaceted. It depends of where you come into the site as to how transparent this is. The most simple page is that of a single person. More complicated is a single family, where there is a father and the articles within for associated people such as wife and children. The next level is multi-generation built around a hub, Articles within articles, generation after generation. With time it slowly grows. Each person within the growing mass, has a single focused article with a similar structure. This method, I think, gives structure to the reader, and to me.

This itself is a snippet which is frequently repeated, and not therefore specific.
