Notes for Matthew TIMBERS
Matthew Timbers was born on 23rd September 1801 in Whitwell and was the son of Matthew Timbers (1760) and Esther Dewing. He was a labourer when he married Mary Peacock (1806) in Sco Ruston on 26th March 1824 but became a shoemaker. He was living in Coltishall between 1824 and 1829. Mary died and he either married or lived with Dinah May. In 1841 he was living in Binham. In 1844 he was mistakenly given as "William Timbers" on his son's marriage certificate.
