Gloucestershire Lookup Requests / Re: john lees and jane godwin
« on: Thursday 18 January 18 17:02 GMT (UK)  »
By 1861 census Robert Lees has a farm at Eyeford and Josephs sister Rebecca Godwin and her future husband William Biggs are both working there. Would be interested to find out if there is a connection to the Godwins of Little Farringdon and my Godwins.The earliest Godwin I have in my research is John Godwin born in 1752 supposedly in Whyck Rissington area.He married Elizabeth Clifford in Whyck Rissington 20/10/1776.Would be interested to hear from anyone who has connections to this line or any relations to this line Thanks

Joseph Godwin servant shown on the 1851 census aged 17 is my great Grandfather.He was born in Netherton Cottages in 1833 which is between Hatherop and Quenington.He is the son of George Godwin and Jane Davis who married at Hatherop in May 1833.By 1851 she had died and George was living in Coln St Aldwyns with his children Jane,Nicholas ,Emmanuel and Rebecca.

Thanks Rosie 99.Think you have got the jist of this saga.I get the feeling that Charles didn't want  anyone to find him ?None of the family seem to have known anything about him in his early life in Newcastle, hence the problem finding him. On his marriage cert to Eliza Lloyd 27th Feb 1915 at Failsworth(Prestwich 8d 423) he gives his name as Charles Trevor Bell. Where the Trevor came from nobody knows. He gives his fathers name as Charles but no leads with that .If my recent info is correct his father could be George Bell b1858 married to Annie Trotter b 1859 Jarrow and his Grandfather is called Charles Bell b 1836 in Newcastle married to Elizabeth Sutherland b1834.Scotland.Can't seem to find a Gloag connection ,suppose there may be a Bardsley connection back to Newcastle. Will keep going. Thanks for your interest.

After reaching a brick wall trying to find out more about Charles Bell in Newton Heath I decided to try the Newcastle upon Tyne area for any clues. I had him on the 1901 census living with Mary E Boyd as a lodger at 69 Harbottle st Byker. He was a carter, which falls in line with his later occupations as lorry driver ,Motor Mechanic(Army records) .Mary E Boyd was married to Christopher Boyd b 1873,he was living in the house of his brother John George Boyd in 1901 .From other postings regarding the Boyd family on this site I understand that this family had a cousin also called John George Boyd who was married to an Elizabeth Bell. At the 1901 census John George ,wife Elizabeth nee Bell and Elizabeth's brother Richard Bell were living at 48 Chapel St. With this information I think there is a definite connection between the two families and when I check back on the census' for the Bell family I find a George Bell b 1858 married to Annie Trotter with children Elizabeth b 1880,Charles b 1883,William b1886,Thomas b 1888,Robert b1891 and Richard b1893.Having contacted Newcastle On Tyne Register Office some years ago regarding a birth cert for Charles The only one they could suggest near enough to be viable was Charles Bell son of George and Annie Bell nee Trotter born 2/11/1883.Is this then the connection that I have been looking almost 50years for? Another similarity is that My husband remembers a family of Boyds living near to his Grandmother in Failsworth .How his Grandfather came to have moved from the Newcastle area to Newton Heath then Failsworth will I suppose remain a mystery unless we find otherwise.He was living with Harriet Bardsley in 1901 who according to his attestation papers for the army was his next of kin and an aunt.Her maiden name was Gloag so maybe she had connections to the Newcastle area? If anyone can help me further I would be so grateful.

Looking for Dorothy Marsh who married Obediah Oldfield of Old Brampton Chesterfield 18/12/1825 at Chesterfield Parish Church(Crooked Spire)Think she was the daughter of William Marsh and Reb ?Marsh maybe of Bolsover. Her bapt could be 15/08/1803 in Bolsover. Anybody got any info on this Marsh family. Know there are quite a few in Scarcliffe but don't know if it is the same family. Any help would be appreciated. I live in Chesterfield and have connections to Scarcliffe .

Hi Man U I don't have a birth cert for Mary Ann but her baptism is available on Family Search and she is baptised as Marrianne Richardson at Wentworth Feb 22nd 1846.Her birth is on FREE BMD as Mary Ann registered March 1846 under Rotherham vol 22 page 534.
John Richardson married Ann Heptinstall 18/8/1845 at Wath Upon Dearne Parish Church.(An area of Rotherham not far from Wentworth)This is shown again on FREE BMD Rotherham  Sept 1845 VOL 22 PAGE 394.I think confusion arises with the spelling of Ann's surname ,Heptinstall,Heptonstall Hepinstall etc.On the marriage cert it is shown as Hepelstone both for her and the father's name even though she signs Heptinstall.I do have a copy of the marriage cert if you would like this I can send to you.Best Wishes Skala
