Derbyshire / Re: Seeking Baptism for Ellen Mason!
« on: Friday 12 January 18 00:22 GMT (UK)  »
Have you considered that she may not have been baptised in that area, there is an ellen mayson, Stoke on Trent Staffordshire, and an eleanor mason Rearsby leicestershire in baptised in that time. Parents did move and sometimes children were baptised in the home parish.Try looking for other Masons in Stapenhill and comparing parents' names also deaths of possible parents.I looked over the border in Burton upon Trent as some of my ancestors were from Stapenhill and appeared in Burton upon Trent registers and vice versa.

Thank you ciderdrinker for your hard work, this lead does look promising.I had wondered about Thomas and Lucy being James parents, given the Lucy name, but had put it on the back burner because, of James's 11 children none had the name Thomas. Two James, one Samuel, the rest were girls. His 2nd wife's father was Thomas too.
I hate mysteries but I love following up clues, it has taken me 10 years to connect James first family to his second and it has only been recently that I have had any success.

Had an interesting time researching John and Angelique and their children, but Louise Frances did not marry Robert Crooks ,she married William Taylor.So back to the drawing board.

Thank you everyone for your input.
I thought there were too many differences, but I was hoping.

Thank you ciderdrinker.I think the John Minton on Molten St may be the right one, since he is a Wine merchant and Angeliques father was also a wine merchant.

Thank you ciderdrinker,I had found the baptism of Louise Frances, but was unable to find any other children. May I ask where you found them.
The gap between Marriage and the baptism of Thomas Harrington allows for another child and James could fit.
Now to find out what I can about the other children.

London and Middlesex / Minton family

Lucy Minton was christened in Newark Nottinghamshire,in 1798 the daughter Of James (1773-1817) and Mary Minton.At some time she moved to London and married Robert Crooks 6 Aug 1827 at St Peter le Poer. Robert was a widower and a likely first marriage was to Frances Minton on 20 May 1806 at St. Georges Hanover Square, there is a death for Frances Crooks Mar 1827 at St Peter le Poer. If this was the correct marriage and death I feel sure there must be some family connection, but I can't find it.I don't know where James and Mary were born,or how old Mary was when she died. Frances was 47 at her death so born about 1780.
Lucy also had an older sister Catherine Mary born about 1795 but I only know about her marriage and death.
Any help in connecting Frances and James would be appreciated.

The Common Room / Re: William Goodall, where did he go?Had he displeased his father?

Thank you for your suggestions as to why William received less than his siblings, they are food for thought.
I still wonder what happened to him,
