Leicestershire / Re: Henry Taylors parents?
« on: Saturday 16 March 19 19:37 GMT (UK)  »
This is the problem, A few Thomas and Ann Taylors were around at the same time.
I have Henry as bapt 3 Sep 1786 St Margarets, Leicester and marries Ann Clarke Jun 1805 St Margarets aged 18.

Leicestershire / John Wood of Hinckley?
« on: Saturday 16 March 19 19:35 GMT (UK)  »
I'm having trouble pinpointing a set of parents for a John Wood.
He marries Martha Bilson 24 Jan 1793 St Mary de Castro, Leicester
They have the following children -
William Wood 1793
John Wood 1795
Thomas Wood 1797
Ann Wood 1800
James Wood 1802
Mary Wood 1804
Timothy Wood 1810
All are baptised at St Mary de Castro.

Martha dies 1827 St Nicholas, Leicester aged 63 with a birthdate of 1764 but I think she is the Martha Bilson bapt 1768 Whetstone.

I cant find John on the 1841 census but in 1851 he is living with his son James and is listed as -
John Wood aged 82 born 1769 a Framework Knitter born Hinckley, Leic.
I have his burial as 1852 Leicester aged 85, so a birthdate of 1767.

So I have a rough birth date of 1767-1769 but I cant find a John Wood of Hinckley.
A John Wood is bapt 1773 Hinckley son of John and Mary but I think this is the 'John Wood, Infant' who is buried 1779 Hinckley?
There is a John Wood bapt in Sapcote 1767 but there is a subsequent marriage and death for this John.
There is a John Wood bapt 1765 Stole Golding to a Thoams and Mary but once again a subsequent infant burial is found.
A John Wood is bapt 1764 in Nuneaton, Warw 4.4 miles from Hinckley but there appears to be a marriage for this John.

There is a John Wood bapt 1767 Bulkington, Warw 7 miles from Hinckley baseborn son of Catherine Wood?

A William Wood marries an Ann Haddon in Hinckley 1768. There are no baptisms for this pair as far as I cound see but this William dies in 1784 and leaves a Will listing his wife Ann and gives her property for the use of her and her Heirs. Would this imply there is children? In the Will of Anns father Joseph Haddon 1781 he mentions money and interest to be paid to the child or children of his daughter Ann Wood after her decease for their maintenance and education. Is this implying that there is indeed children?
I can see that William Wood was baptised a non conformist in the 1740s so maybe the they baptised as such?

Any help appreciated

Leicestershire / Re: Richard Dudley Royalist.

I'm not certain if Lawrence did indeed only have 1 son. The Dudley family of swepstone in the mid/late 1500s also use the names Lawrence, William and Robert. The same names used by the Clopton family.

It is Richard Dudley who tops this pedigree that Dean Dudley quotes as 'Richard Dudley of Clopton, who held land at Swepstone' whether this is true or not I don't know.

The pedigree Thomas gives, states to refer to Leicester and Northampton, which I assume means the visitation pedigree of Northamptonshire 1564 or 1619 of the Dudley family of Clopton Manor.

The 1564 pedigree is topped by -
Richard Dudley, Esq of Barnwell who marries Agnes or Joan Hotoft daughter of Sir Robert Hotoft of Clopton and had 3 sons, William, Thomas and John Dudley.
Succeeded by -
William Dudley, Esq of Clopton who married Christian Darrell daughter of UNK Darrell, Esq of Lillington Darrell and had 2 sons, Lawrence and Robert Dudley.
Succeeded by -
Lawrence Dudley, Esq of Clopton who married Frances Lesham daughter of Thomas Lesham, Esq of Lexham Burnham and had William, his only son and heir.
Succeeded by -
William Dudley, Esq of Clopton who married Elizabeth Porter daughter of Augustine Porter, Gent of Belton and had Thomas, Gilbert and William Dudley.
Suceeded by -
Thomas Dudley Esq of Clopton who married Mary Watsone daughter of Edward Watsone, Gent of Liddington and had Edward, Jeremy, John and Kenelm Dudley.

I'm not sure from whom, Richard Dudley of Swepstone descends. Thomas's Grandfather would be born c1530 and I think he is the Richard who dies 1605 listed as by will
'Richard Dudley the Elder of Swepstone, Yeoman'
Given the time period, Richard could be a grandson of William Dudley Esq and Darrell but im not sure.
The pedigree misses out a generation. Between Richard of Barnwell and William of Clopton, numerous sites and stirnet put this generation in -
Sir Richard Dudley of Clopton who married Elizabeth de Beauchamp daughter of Sir William de Beauchamp.

Cambridgeshire / Jerson or Isaacson?
« on: Sunday 24 February 19 11:17 GMT (UK)  »
I have a brickwall here -
Elizabeth Jerson marries Robert Webb 1776 Fulbourn, Cambs. I have not been able to find a baptism for her or any other Jerson family baptisms or burials.
The only other person is a Stephen Jerson who marries Martha Fordham in 1773 Great Wilbraham which is only 3 miles away from Fulbourn, Cambs. He has been transcribed on marriage as 'Stephen Jerson or Isaacson'
This Stephen then uses the name of Isaacson to baptise his children.
Could Stephen and Elizabeth be illegitimate? I know there is an Isaacson family 8 miles away at Burwell and another 7.5 miles away at Dullingham.
Any help appreciated.

The email comprises the pedigree which I'm fairly certain is correct, based on wills, locations and church records

Leicestershire / Parents of Sarah Brewin/Bruin/Bryan?
« on: Thursday 14 February 19 18:20 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking for the parents of Sarah Brewin/Bruin.
She married John Tookey/Tooke 14 May 1785 Kibworth Beauchamp, Leic. On the license she is stated to be 25 years old with a birth date of 1760. She dies 1792 and buried Leicester St Margarets.
All of the baptisms for a Sarah Brewin/Bruin/Bryan appear around 1760 appear to have subsequent marriages or infant burials.
There is however a baptism for a Sarah Bryan in 1768 Kibworth Beauchamp. Daughter of George Bryan and Sarah. Their children appear to be transcribed with the name Brian/Bryan. I cant see an infant burial or marriage for a Sarah Bryan of Kibworth.
Any help appreciated
