Bitton Families



by Josephine

My GREEN family in the neighbourhood is likely to have originated with Anthony GREEN who had a settlement examination in Bitton in 1759. He was born in Calne, Wiltshire c. 1722 and married Rebecca SWEET on 22nd. July 1747 at Bitton. Click on the sidebar link to read his settlement examination.

My 5x great-grandfather was Anthony GREEN. I don't yet have a baptism for him in Bitton, but his father may have been the Anthony GREEN who married Rebecca SWEET on 22nd. July 1747 at Bitton.

Mother's name was recorded as Betty. Anthony GREEN, Elizabeth, his wife, and Mary, their daughter, aged about one and a half, were removed from Heddington, Wiltshire to Bitton, Gloucestershire on 5th. May 1789.
