Cambridgeshire Lookup Requests / Re: Lofts - 3 generations of missing marriages ??
« on: Tuesday 13 February 18 22:17 GMT (UK)  »
It's a bit of an insult to the folks on this board who have given you so much help with your numerous queries over the past few months when you cross post the same query on another board within two minutes of each other.

Are you not satisfied with us?

Living in Stanfield Norfolk in 1851 were John Jackson 51 born Littleport and his wife Mary A 49 born Ramsey Hunts, who if they the are couple who married in 1825 in Littleport  would not appear to be the couple you are seeking.

Cambridgeshire Lookup Requests / Re: Looking for a wedding near Pampisford c 1715

A long shot!

There's a marriage of a John Frost at Fleet, London, on 11 Nov 1716. The entry is on familysearch, but it appears to have been taken from an index of marriages so the other party isn't named. But searching the same database for Mabel there are marriages of Mabel (l) Harrington at Fleet  London on 12 /13 Nov 1716. Suspiciously close and the references are RG7-041/042/044.

Worth further investigation

I had missed the death of Grace in the Super Search


The super search merely shows an entry for Grace Frost in Pampisford parish register in 1716; It doesn't show that it was a burial. You need to check the parish register to  check whether it was a baptism, marriage or burial.

If you'd checked www.familysearch.org you'd have found a 1707 marriage to Grace Jepps. And the supersearch at the Cambs FHS site to which you've been directed before has an entry in 1716 in Pampisford for Grace Frost, which might be a burial.

Bedfordshire / Re: MUMFORDS in Pertenhall?

Does the marriage entry give parishes of residence other than Pertenhall? Do the witnesses provide any clues?

Virtually all Beds marriages pre 1813 are on familysearch

Cambridgeshire Lookup Requests / Re: Jemima Munsey looking for baptism
« on: Monday 01 January 18 12:06 GMT (UK)  »
You are only a couple of years older than me!

I gave you the name MUNCEY as that's what it's indexed as, not Munsey, which is doubtless why you're getting a nil result.

If you use https://www.cfhs.org.uk/searchsd.cfm it will take you direct to the baptism index. The index is good as it will search against the first three letters only, so picks up variations such as Muncey, Munsy, Muncy etc. But it can also throw up too many hits. For these numerous queries you're posting you should first check the super search in the CFHS Shop box on the welcome page

She's the Jemima Muncey that I mentioned as being on the Cambs FHS site. You should try that first before posting for look ups.
