Ari’s 7x great-grandfather William Day was born in 1735 in Huddington, Worcestershire and christened on 30 September, the son of John Day and Alice Robinson. The little church at Huddington is in the grounds of a fifteenth-century manor house called Huddington Court, famous for its connection with the Gunpowder Plot. You can read the story in this interestingly named AA walking guide!

You have to walk through the garden to get to St James’ church.

On 14 Oct 1762 William married Margaret Hartland in this church, and they had six children: Ann, Sarah, Susannah, twins John and William, and Margaret. Margaret was born in 1772, so William must have died after this date but I have not found out when and where he was buried.

Ari, this is how you are related to William Day:
