WILCOCK OF BRADDOCK

 

The Stephen Wilcock who married Elizabeth Bound at St Neot in 1725 seems to be the one baptised at Braddock in 1696 and there is good onomastic support for the identification. However, it should be noted that there were other Wilcocks in nearby parishes who used some of the same forenames.

 

A Stephen Wilcock married Elizabeth Hay in 1733 at St Veep. This could not be a remarriage of the Stephen who married Elizabeth Bound as Elizabeth (Bound) Wilcock was still living in 1735 when she was mentioned in the will of her aunt Martha Harris. The St Veep Stephen was probably the one whose monumental inscription at St Veep states that he died on 1 June 1762 aged 72.[1] He would therefore be born about 1689 or 1690 and so is unlikely to be the Stephen Wilcock baptised at Braddock in 1696.

 

A Nicholas Wilcock was baptised at St Veep in 1667 and was apparently the one of that name whose monumental inscription at St Winnow states he died on 9 February 1742 aged 75.[2] He evidently married a Sarah in 1704 at St Winnow so would not be the Nicholas Wilcock whose children were baptised at Braddock in the period 1691 to 1707 and whose wife throughout that period was named Ann.
