William Sedgwick of Wigan (born circa 1767)

William Sedgwick [William Sedgeweek / Ann Unknown]
bpt. 21 February 1767
m1. Margaret Litherland 1791
d July 1838

Son Peter's baptism states that he is the second son of William Sedgwick, weaver, and Margaret Ashurst the daughter of Emery. The IGI give different maiden names for Margaret - she was the base born daughter of Emery Litherland. Her mother married Peter Whittle in 1774 and assumedly an Ashurst after that.

The baptismal records have been corrected from William to Peter but the Bishops Transcripts haven't.

William junior is in the British Army in Canada in 1812.
