Dorset Lookup Requests / Re: Sweetland, Diodis b c 1664
« on: Wednesday 22 August 18 11:19 BST (UK)  »
Hello
That baptism for Diodis seems to be Diodis-----Charles Swetland was baptised 31 July 1664.
So looks like father Charles.
Dionis was buried at Dalwood 13.10.1731
Thomasine at Dalwood  7.12.1735

There is a marriage at Bridport Charles Sweetland and Rebecca Akarman of Dalwood and after of  Walldech were married 26.11.1655

That is fantastic, thank you so much for looking and for the additional information, I really appreciate it. I have some good leads to work on my previous brick wall.
Many thanks to you.

There is a Joane d of Charles bapt at Dalwood 10.7.1642

So may not have been his first marriage.

The only Simon I can see is at Exter to William and Rebecca 27.10.1695 at Holy Trinity

Emma,
I have looked at the baptism image (Diodis Swettland) on FindMyPast and his father's name is not given, this might indicate he was not baptised as a child.
There certainly is a burial of a Dionis Sweatland at Dalwood on 13th Oct 1731 but no age given. I can't see any other candidates.
I can't see the baptism of Simon.
Regards
Peter

Thank you ever so much for having a look, much appreciated :)

Dorset Lookup Requests / Sweetland, Diodis b c 1664
« on: Monday 20 August 18 21:05 BST (UK)  »
Hello,

I wondered if it might be possible to do a look up request please for 2 relatives of mine (hopefully)?

I have posted this in the Devon group too as Dalwood is in Devon now but prior to 1844 was in Dorset.

I have a Simon Sweetland who died in Kilmington in 1762, I think he was born around 1699-1705. I can't find his baptism at Kilmington (the record book is lost) so his parents and siblings may be lost to me, but a possibility I am investigating that his parents were:

Diodis Sweetland baptisted 24 Jul 1664 Widworthy,Devon,England ( I think he was born in Dalwood as his marriage in 1693 is listed as Dionysie Swetland of Dalwood and Thomasin Board of Whitworthy). If Diodis and Dionysie are the same person.

I wondered if someone might be able to look up his baptism so that I can find out his father's name please?

Also would it be possible to look for his death please? Some say it maybe at St Peter's in Dalwood in 1731.

Finally would somebody mind looking for the birth of a Simon Sweetland b 1699 to see if his father is Diodis/Dionysie?

I know this is alot of asks but I have drawn a blank, I am not sure if Diodis was a traditional name or a nick name and I also can't prove that my Simon was his son.

I know alot about Simon but don't have his baptism to prove his parents - what I do know: apprenticed (carpentry) in 1714 Membury, Devon, England (settled in Kilmington), baptised aged 16 in 1715 Membury, Devon, England, married to Mary Lidon 9 May 1725 Kilmington, Devon, England, had his children in Kilmington, gave apprenticeship for carpentry 9 Oct 1730 Kilmington, Devon, England to Timothy son of Mary Liddon and died there Burial 22 Jan 1762 Kilmington, Devon, England.

Dalwood, Membury, Widworthy and Kilmington are all really close to one another.

I am grateful to you for your time in reading this. Best wishes,
Emma

Oh no what a shame, thank you very much for letting me know, and for the link :)

Hello there,

I just wondered if some one could help me with a possible look up please?

I am trying to find the parents and siblings of Simon Sweetland b 1705 at Kilmington in Devon. I also wondered if there was a record of his marriage to the Mary below please?

I think I might have asked before and was told the register for around this time was lost but wondered if it might have appeared since my last writing please. There are so many little clusters of Sweetlands born in the surrounding villages and I really want to find out how my family are linked!

Thanks in advance for reading this

Emma

Hello,

I got a result for a will on ancestry but there is no attached photo to actually read the will, do you happen to know where I need to go in order to read this please? I am at a brick wall with Simon Sweetland b 1705 Kilmington and I am hoping it might give me some family info/clues as I can't find his parents or siblings (the parish registers have been lost!!!).

Best wishes,
Emma
