It's Treasure Chest Tuesday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1856 burial record of Ann (Marshman) Richman in the Hilperton, Wiltshire Church of England parish registers:

This is the burial record from the Hilperton, Wiltshire parish register for my 3rd great-grandmother, Ann (Marshman) Richman (1784-1856).  Ann's parents are as yet unknown, although I now have suspicions based on further study over the past three months.  She was born about 1784 in Devizes, Wiltshire.  She married John Richman (1789-1867) on 28 February 1811 in Hilperton.  They had 8 children between 1811 and 1825, including my 2nd great-grandfather, James Richman (1821-1913).
