Hi Diana.

Thank you, this helps a lot. This has helped me to take the family back another generation to John and Grace Tossel.

Kind Regards Tony.

PS I have made a note Mary the daughter of Richard and Mary Tossel 1797 for future reference.

Does anyone have any information on Mary Whiteway born about 1766 Devon She married William Bickford in 1787 in Broadhempston Devon.
Any and all help would be much appreciated.
Thanks, Tony.

That’s brilliant thank you for looking up that for me.

I think that Hannah Quenby was Elizabeth Qunby’s sister.

Hannah Quenby married Thomas Smith Elstob Dryden Elstob’s brother in 1821 at St Dunstan’s Stepney, she is my 3X great grandmother.

Elizabeth Quenby was one of the witnesses to  Hannah Quenby’s marriage to Thomas Smith Elstob.

Elizabeth Quenby married Dryden Elstob in 1821 and died in 1825 not long after her daughter Elizabeth was born.

Dryden Elstob married his second wife Betsy Young 14th Aug 1830 at Romsey Abbey Hampshire.

Thank You once again for your help.

Could some kind person please look up the parish records for Alresfold for the baptism and the parents of Hannah Quenby born about 1801.

In the 1851 census for St Marylebone Middlesex HO107 P1488 F552 Page 2 she is listed as Hannah Elstob aged 50 born Alresfold Hampshire.

She married Thomas Smith Elstob 5th March 1821 St Dunstan’s Stepney Middlesex and died 1874 at Southwalk Surrey.


Hi, Thank you for your reply, I have just sent you a personal message.

Kind Regards.

If some kind person can please look up the parish records for Laverstock and Ford for birth / baptism of Charles Blake, born about 1818.

Charles Blake a Solicitor of 22 College Hill City of London married Mary Ann Elstob in 1842 at St Giles Camberwell, they lived at Blue House Merton Surrey, Fathers name Chas Blake. In the census for 1851 and 1861 it gives his birth place as Ford Wiltshire.
He is also listed in a collection of family papers in The National Archives under the heading Blake Family of Winterbourne Earls and Laverstock Ref number 1214/6.

I am particularly interested in his father's full name and if possible his mother's name / maiden name and any information in general on the Blake Family of Winterbourne Earls and Laverstock.

Thank your for any help you can supply.

Thank you very much David for all your help, it is greatly appreciated.

Going back to your offer re family of Dryden Elstob and Betsey Young. I have the baptisms of two of there children Mary 1822 and Dryden 1824 but not Elizabeth Ann 1825. I would be grateful if you could let me have Elizabeth Ann Elstob 1825 baptism details when you have the time.

I do have some information Dryden Elstob’s escapades but I don’t have any thing on his son’s brushes with the law. I would be grateful if you could let me have the details when you get time.
