Surname Saturday – Muncy

My first ancestor with this surname was Mary Muncy.

My line is:

 1 Lois Whimpey

2 Ivon Walter Whimpey (1923-2009)
3 Edith Jean Marr (1922-1990)

6 Wilfred Palmer Marr (1892-1955)
7 Edith Meriden Docwra (1904-1948)

14 Harry Docwra (1866-1934)
15 Emily Alice Oliver (1877-1925)

28 Alfred Docwra (1824-1903)
29 Mary Scott (1830-1885)

58 Joseph Scott (1797-1846)
59 Mary Muncy (1806-1836)

Mary Muncy was born about 1806. There is a Mary Ann Muncy who was christened 19 May 1806 at Guilden Morden.  This baptism appears to be for our Mary. Her parents were William and Ann Muncy.  I have not been able to find a marriage for William and Ann, so I don’t yet know Ann’s maiden name, or where William may have been from, so I haven’t traced this line any further back at this stage.

Mary married Joseph Scott on 4 March 1826 at Guilden Morden. They had 4 children:

  • Ann was christened 9 July 1826 at Guilden Morden. She died in 1837 at Bassingbourn
  • Mary was born about 1830 at Steeple Morden
  • David was christened 10 November 1833 at Steeple Morden
  • Joel was christened 13 November 1836 at Steeple Morden

Mary died in 1836 at the age of 30 years.  She was buried 4 December 1836 at Steeple Morden.
