Do you have any information for the Emily Watson who about 1850 married William Henry Grocock, born c1820 London ENG?

Sabra Ann Cockrillís maiden name was either Watson or Walton.

I mentioned that I have a new interest in the Grocock name since I found my relative Sabra Cockrill/Cockerill named in the will of an Elizabeth Grocock who died in March, 1826 in Finchley, England. The will is dated 15 November 1824.

Lawsuit is Cockerill v. Pitchforth 1845

My relative, Thomas Cockrill is contesting the will.

They wrote: Upon Mrs. Cockerillís death, her husband instituted this suit against the trustees and Tomlinson, requiring the transfer of the fund to himself, alleging that the clause in the will directing the share or proportion of his wife to be for her separate use, &c., was applicable to her share in the real estate only.

Here are some of the other names mentioned in her will:

Edward Machin, brother
Eleanor Anson, sister
Elizabeth Hankinson, niece
Truman Machin
Hector Tause
John Machin
Sabra, wife of Thomas Cockrill
Richard Cockrill (son of Sabra and Thomas Cockrill)
Elizabeth, wife of John Cockrill
Elizabeth, wife of David Bidmead
Maria, wife of Frederick Kercheval/Kerchevall
Jane Elizabeth Hankinson
Elizabeth Mary Wardell
Caroline, wife of Charles Pitchforth
Charlotte St. George
Elizabeth Eleanor St. George
Jonas Radford
John Radford
Elizabeth Radford
Thomas Radford, Trustee

Elizabeth Grocock had freehold messuages, tenements, and premises, situate and being in Burr-street, Wapping, in Angel and Sun Court, Nightingale-lane and Tower-Hill.


Mr. Tripp for Plaintiff, Thomas Cockrill
Mr. Shebbeare for trustees
Mr. Russell and Mr. Bagshawe for Defendant ??? Tomlinson

Trustees are: C. Pitchforth (Charles); F. Kercheval (Frederick) and T. Radford (Thomas)

Any of these names sound familiar???
