I cant seem to find a baptism for my 6th grt grandfather William Oliver Measom.

On the 41/51/61 census records he is living in Burton Overy, Leicestershire and gives his birthdate as C.1770 and birthplace as Spratton, Northamptonshire.
He marries Sarah Jane Simpson 21 Apr 1794 Burton Overy, Leic.

I can see a Hannah Measom was buried 3 May 1802 Spratton but that's all.

There is a William Masom bapt 1768 16miles away from Spratton in Irthlingborough. Parents John and Mary?

Leicestershire / Sutton Cheney Church Swynfen monument?
« on: Friday 20 July 18 18:48 BST (UK)  »
According to sources, the Swynfen family of Sutton Cheney who were Gentry and Armigers were buried in the Chapel of Sutton Cheney and a Will denotes a Monument to be made dedicated to Richard Swynfen Esq of Sutton Cheney 1560-1633. Richard's wife states this in her will ''a gravestone to be laid in the usual burying place of my husband aforesaid in the chapel of Sutton Cheney aforesaid to remain a monument for my said husband & me with both our names thereonĒ.
Their son John Swynfen also states this on his will - ďmy body to be buried in the Chapel of Sutton aforesaid in the upper end of the north isle there it being the burying ground belonging to my house & the place wherein my late dear wife & many of my ancestors have been interredĒ.

Although I cant seem to find anything much relating to inside the church.
Has anyone been to the Church or knows if there is any monuments or gravestones relating to the Swynfens as listed on the Will?
I know there is an Effigy dedicated to Sir William Roberts but I cant see anything dedicated to the Swynfens.

Leicestershire / Looking for Sarah Bull/Ball?
« on: Wednesday 18 July 18 06:25 BST (UK)  »
Iím trying to find parents for my 5th grt grandmother Sarah Bull.

She marries Edward Hawkins 10 Apr 1803 All Saints Leicester. Listed of the Parish.

In 1841 her birthdate is rounded to 1782 Leicestershire. I believe she is the Sarah Hawkins living in St Margaretís 1851 with the Philips family and birthdate given is 1785 Hinckley.

Sarah dies 1860 aged 75, which gives her a birthdate of around 1785.

I canít seem to find a baptism for her fitting Hinckley. I think Bull might also be Ball given the close pronunciation.

I did have her as bapt 1786 Leicester, daughter of Robert and Margaret Bull but I have found a burial shortly after for Sarah daughter of Robert Bull so that rules that out.
The only other one is a Sarah Ball bapt Dec 1786 Leicester all saints. Daughter of John Ball and Catherine Cotes I think.

Leicestershire / Re: James Crossley of Mountsorrel?

Thank you very much.
I had the glenfirld burial linked so good to know I have the correct one.
I should be able to view the newspapers on FindMyPast, thank you for the offer though  :)

Iíll have to check again but he isnít with his wife and family in 1861, I wonder where he got to.

Leicestershire / James Crossley of Mountsorrel?
« on: Tuesday 10 July 18 16:08 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for the parents of James Crossley.
On census records 1841-1851 he is listed as born abt 1810/11 and from Mountsorrel.
Occupation - Blacksmith.
He marries Sophia Holyoak 17 May 1831 Leicester.
I think he dies 1869 aged 59 in Blaby which fits his age but on the 1861 Census he is not present with his wife and family, Sophia's occupation is 'Wife' so I assume he is still alive in 1861? A James Crossley dies 1859 Leicester aged 43.

The only baptism which comes up for a James Crossley is -
James Crossley bapt 23 Sep 1810 Rothley, Leicestershire. Son of John.
Rothley is on 1.1 miles away from Mountsorrel, so this looks to be my James.
Although I'm having trouble identifying his parents.

There is a Jeremiah and Rosamund also baptised in Rothley 1812 & 1814 to a John Crossley then an Elizabeth is baptised in Mountsorrel to a John and Elizabeth Crossley 1817, This time as Wesleyan non conformist so I'm not sure if these are the same parents but seems likely as James says he is from Mountsorrel.

A John Crossley is buried in Rothley 1835 aged 70 which gives him a birthdate of 1765 and an Elizabeth Crossley is also buried in Rothley 1830 aged 53 which gives her a birthdate of 1777.

I couldn't see any marriage for a John to Elizabeth on FindMyPast except this one -
John Crossley marries Elizabeth Lockwood 17 Jan 1796 Kinoulton, Nottinghamshire.
Although one record gives this marriage as John Crossland not Crossley.
Kinoulton is 17 miles from Rothley.
Co-Incidentally an Elizabeth Lockwood is baptised in 1777 Kinoulton. Although that would make Elizabeth 18 and John 31 at the time of wedding if these are the same pair?
I havent had much luck on John Crossley c.1765 though.
Could these pair be James's parents?

Warwickshire / William Taylor of Nuneaton.
« on: Friday 06 July 18 21:07 BST (UK)  »
I'm researching my 6th grt grandfather and trying to determine who his parents are, It seems he also has a previous marriage but I'm not quite sure if it is my William of 2 William Taylors.

William Taylor marries Joanna Large 25 May 1797 Nuneaton.
William is a Soldier and Batchelor aged 40 born around 1757 and Joanna is a Spinster and is 40 born around 1757.
On William's military record he says his occupation was a Ribbon Weaver and he is from Nuneaton.

I have his baptism as Jun 1756 Nuneaton son of William Taylor and Ann Walker.

But there seems to be a previous marriage which looks to be my William aswell but he is listed as a Batchelor on his marriage to Joanna?

William Taylor marries Sarah Jellife 10 Dec 1775 Nuneaton.
William is listed as a Ribbon Weaver.
This William and Sarah seem to have the Following children -
Ann Taylor bapt 1778 Nuneaton
William Taylor bapt 1783 Nuneaton
There a no more children to William and Sarah after 1783.
According to Williams military record he served 30 Years which means he must have enlisted aged 16.
Did my William marry Sarah and have this 2 Children whilst away on leave then went away for over 10 years and came back and marry Joanna?
Sarah doesnt seem to die before 1798?

He only has one Child with Joanna, My 5th grt grandfather John Large Taylor bapt Aug 1798 Nuneaton.

The Job and Hannah is interesting.
I can see Job is born abt 1816 Ratby/Enderby going by census but I cant see a baptism. His marriage to Hannah Jelley/Gelley states that his father is Joseph Sutton.
Interestingly he marries a Hannah and has a son called Edwin.
My Sarah and Henry have 2 children called Hannah and Edwin.
Perhaps the Job Sutton is a cousin? and Selena was a cousin or sister to Sarah?
