In 1798 a George Shipley was a witness to a marriage at Burton Latimer between Benjamin Elwood, a papermaker of Isham and Elizabeth Coles of Burton Latimer. In November 1802 banns of his forthcoming marriage to Ann Smith were published at Burton Latimer by Rev S. Barwick and they married on 8th December 1802 in the church at Isham, Northants. Together they had six children, all born at Burton Latimer. Two died at birth , the other four were all baptised at the Parish Church there. In 1813 his daughter, Fanny's record of baptism gives her father's occupation as baker.

By 1815 George was in prison in Northampton for debt. The London Gazette has an entry as follows:

18 May 1815 p958

"By order of the Court for the Relief of Insolvent Debtors - the Petition of George SHIPLEY, late of Burton Latimer in the County of Northampton, Baker, but now a prisoner for debt confined in His Majesty's Gaol of Northampton in the County of Northampton, will be heard."

In 1837 a petition for clemency re. his son George junior (qv) states that Anne, George Junior's mother, was a widow, therefore George senior must have died before that year. In 1868, on his widow's death certificate, his occupation was given as baker I have no further information about him at present. See notes re. Anne (Smith).

RS - He was in prison in 1815 so his death should be later than 1815, earlier than 1837.
