George was probably a brother of my 2x great-grandmother Mary HUGILL, who had married John PEACOCK in the same church in 1836. George HUGILL, a joiner of Stockton-on-Tees, was the executor for John's will, but unfortunately that document doesn't specify their relationship.
In census returns, the birthplace of Mary PEACOCK nee HUGILL (born c.1813) and George HUGILL (c.1816-1817) is shown as Hull, Yorkshire.
Today I ordered the certificate for George and Jane's marriage in 1844. I want to know whether George gave the same details then as he did when he married again (as a widower) in 1858, to Helen WRIGHT. According to the 1858 certificate, George was a son of Joseph HUGILL, a joiner.
George HUGILL and Jane BLACKBURN had three children:
* John George HUGILL died from burns at the age of 9 (see Carlisle Patriot, 14 Jan 1854).
* Frederick HUGILL (1846-1926) was a watchmaker and jeweller. He and his wife Elizabeth ROBINSON moved to Bangor in North Wales, but their five children were born in the Stockton area - Jane (she married George William EWART), George Frederick, Helen, Elizabeth and Florence.
* William HUGILL, born 1849. I have not yet researched him.

This is my Week 5 post for 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. Amy Johnson Crow has challenged us to do something with the family history information that we've gathered. Even if I don't always stick to the suggested themes, I'll try to post something here each week.
