William Mycock

aft 1690 - 1763

Father James Mycock
Mother Elizabeth
Wife Ellen Sellars
Children Elizabeth, Jane, William , Ellen, Isaac, Ellen, James


William was born in Flagg around the early to mid 1690s (1), the youngest son of James and Elizabeth Mycock. He had six older brothers - Adam, Solomon, Matthew, James, John & Robert; and an older sister Sara. Two other older siblings, Samuel & Ruth, died somewhere around the same time, so its unclear whether or not they were still alive when he was born (2).

His father died in 1710 (3), and William was left 10 to be paid on the death of his mother. His mother wrote her will in 1821, making William and his next elder brother her main beneficiaries and executors (4) - however she still had some life left in her!

William married Ellen Sellars, also from Flagg, at All Saints, Bakewell on 7th April 1724 (5), and their first child, Elizabeth, was born about 5 months later (6). Another daughter, Jane, followed in 1728 (7), and then a son, William in 1731 (8). His mother died later the same year (9). His next daughter, Ellen, was born in 1735 (10), followed by a son Isaac in 1738 (11). His youngest daughter, another Ellen (12), came along in 1742, and finally, his youngest son James was born in 1746 (13).

William died in 1763 and was buried in Chelmorton on 22nd May (14).


Brief details of his children:



Sources:

  1. William was described as being in his minority (i.e. under 21, or possibly under 18) at his father's estate's administration in July 1711 (2), hence he must have been born after 1690. However it was probably not long after 1690 because his next eldest sibling (or at least the next eldest that survived to the date of his fathers will) was born in 1682.
  2. See his father's page for details.
