Mahala NEWBOLD - (Abt. 1811 - 1883)
Various records show that Mahala NEWBOLD was born in Exton, Rutland between 1811 and 1814.
She was in fact, baptized in the parish church of Exton on 28th July 1811, the records stating that she was the daughter of Geo. and Ann
Pudding Bag Lane, Exton

of Exton can be seen in the 'Photos' section of this web site.
It is believed that Mahala married Amos HIBBITT in
Exton in 1830. They appear to have had one child, Charles Newbold
HIBBITT, who was born in 1839.

and also her parents, George and Ann
NEWBOLD, and other family members. Below is a list of those living in the household at that time.
