Hi Mike,
Thanks for the information had not seen the Dunster branck before. As you say early dates but unfortunately they don't seem to link into my Shentons but may do at an earlier date.
Still looking for Thomas Shenton b ca 1635. Married 1657 East Pennard.
Regards
Derek

Somerset / Re: Hester OLDFIELD
« on: Monday 19 July 10 17:20 BST (UK)  »
Hi Ardy,
Being now fairly certain that I am descended from Hester's second marriage I have not taken the Oldfield line any further back.
Hester's second marriage was probably bigamous as it looks like her first husband James Oldfield (father of John) was also transported to Australia. It is all very murky.
We have obtained as much as possible regarding the trials and transportation.
Jeff in Australia who is descended from John Oldfield has been continuing the research and if you wish I can put you in touch with him, you may well have much info to share. Can you reply off board here?
Regards
Derek

Berkshire / Re: Hains/Haines family in West Berks

Hi Ian,
Many thanks, so there is at least one Hains family inthe area so hopefully there are more nearby. If Edmund is a 'family' name then these are likely to be related.
Best wishes

Hi Alan,
Thanks for the reply, I had not realised that some of the parishes on the Wilts Berks border are now in Oxfordshire. Parloc shows them in Berks which I suppose is historically correct.
Thanks for eliminating some of the parishes. I'll check into the remaining Oxfordshire ones and the Berks FHS.
Best wishes

Berkshire / Hains/Haines family in West Berks
« on: Wednesday 28 April 10 10:26 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone please help me I am looking for the baptism of Edmund HAINS/HAINES ca 1805 in west Berkshire probably near the Wiltshire border.

The person I am looking for claims in the census 1851 to 1871 to have been born in Bishopstone, Wilts but there is no record of him in either of the Bishopstones in Wilts or surrounding Wilts parishes.
Bishopstone is right on the Berks border and it is possible that they moved to Bishopstone when Edmund was young, hence his claim to have been born there.
He married in Chelsham, Surrey in 1824 to Ann from Wroughton, Wiltshire.

A lot of the nearby Berks villages are in the IGI and while there are Haines there is no Edmund, however Watchfield, Wolstone, Baulking, Shellingford,  Great Farringdon, Letcombe Bassett, Goosey, Hatford, Fawley, Chilton are not on the IGI. Does anyone know if there are any transcriptions of these parishes that I could purchase or are they on a Genealogy web site somewhere?

The IGI does list an Edmand Hains baptised Coleshill on 20 OCT 1811 but unless this is a late baptism he would have been 13 when he married, with Ann being 20.
If anyone has access to the Coleshill records it would be much appreciated if you could check the record and see if there is any note regarding his birth date or age .

Many thanks
Derek

Hi H,
Is that the Hugh Wallis with the index to the IGI or does he have his own transcriptions web site?

Hi,
Thanks. It may be them but Braunton is a long way from Hennock and with there being so many untranscribed parishes in Devon other possibilities may exist.
The info has been filed.
Best wishes
