Suffolk / Re: Sarah Sturman Suffolk
« on: Today at 13:13 »
She married a George A Hemsley in the June quarter 1911 Cuckfield, Sussex as Elizabeth F. Sturman (which was her legal name).

Elizabeth Florence Hemsley b.2/7/1886, died Mar. 1971 Cuckfield, Sussex.

She and George appear to have had 2 children:

Edith F. Hemsley mmn Sturman  Sept.1912 Brighton, Sussex
Stanley C. Hemsley mmn Sturman Sept.1918     ditto


Beat me to it trish1120

Only Polly (Mary Ann) and Emma were Sarah's children. (looks like there was a son Benjamin born June qtr.1872 - think he could be the Benjamin whose death recorded Dec.1877 Ashton under Lyne and mistakenly shown as age 1??)

All the other Saville children are from Joseph's first marriage to Martha Brier/Brear, the last being John whose birth registered Mar.qtr.1869, the same time as when mother Martha died.

So after Joseph's death she took her own 2 daughters to the US and all her step-children remained here.

As I mentioned on your other thread (to which you didn't respond) you seem to be making things over complicated for yourself by ordering from the local register offices.   It's far simpler ordering direct from the GRO and all you need to quote is the details from the relevant index.


Warwickshire Lookup Requests / Re: Marriage John Kirk
« on: Yesterday at 10:42 »
A John Kirk married Rebecca Penn 3/7/1770 Uttoxeter St. Mary, Staffordshire (both shown of that parish) and one child baptised in Uttoxeter - Mary bp.18/12/1771.

I think this must be the couple who then move to Birmingham.   There is certainly no further trace of these 3 in Uttoxeter after 1771.

Rebecca Penn appears to have baptised in Birmingham 11/2/1743 so couple moved on to her birthplace.

You seem to be assuming that John Kirk was the one bp'd Birmingham 1745, son of George, but he could equally be the John Kirk bp.4/12/1743 Uttoxeter, son of Francis and Elizabeth.   Rebecca could have gone to work in Uttoxeter where she met the John Kirk born there in 1743, married him there 1770, a daughter born 1771 and then they move on to Birmingham, Rebecca's birthplace.


Family History Beginners Board / Re: Clamp
« on: Sunday 14 January 18 21:19 GMT (UK)  »
I note from some trees on ancestry that none seem to have Farring Clamp's baptism or parents, plus in 1851 he states born Canterbury City, 61 and 71 in Ipswich, Suffolk and 1881 Bury St. Edmunds so obviously not sure himself.   However, I believe Canterbury was indeed correct and that his parents later went to Ipswich.

Ferren/Ferrin Clamp bp.23/4/1797 Canterbury, Kent, son of Richard and Ann.

Found marriage of a Richard Clamp to Ann Simons 16/2/1789 Saxstead, Suffolk

Two daughters born Ipswich:

Jane Clamp bp.31/7/1802 St. Clement, Ipswich, dau. of Richard and Ann
Susannah Clamp b.11/10/1804, bp.21/7/1805 St. Peter, Ipswich, dau. of Richard and Ann late Simonds.   (Richard is shown as being in Westminster Militia).

So with son born in Canterbury (Farring's 1851 pob), and 2 daughters born in Ipswich (Farring's 1861/1871 pob) surely Richard Clamp and wife Ann Simons must be his parents?   Clearly they were not long in Canterbury and swiftly moved to Ipswich but where they were between 1789 and 1796 have no idea, likewise after 1805.


Gloucestershire Lookup Requests / Re: Bristol Help Needed

With his fathers name being Patrick I suspect he was of Irish origin and suspect that your answer may be in catholic records for Bristol which don't appear to be available online as far as I can see.


Nottinghamshire Lookup Requests / Re: William Caunt marriage
« on: Sunday 14 January 18 02:18 GMT (UK)  »
William Caunt born Garthorpe was not the son of the possible couple you mentioned (who were in Nottinghamshire).

William's parents were William and Charlotte and this is their marriage:

William Caunt and Charlotte Geeson married 29/10/1821 Garthorpe, Leicestershire.

Census shows he was bc.1794 Foston, Lincolnshire.

William's wife in 1861 is Elizabeth, not Eliza and as birth entries on GRO index show her maiden name was Griffin or Griffen (also in 1851).

As already mentioned, William Caunt and Elizabeth Griffin married 1846 Shillington.

His age is wrong on 1861 census - shows him as 27 but 1851 census also shows him (with Elizabeth) as 27.

His baptism is actually 3/12/1822 Garthorpe, son of William and Charlotte.


Norfolk Lookup Requests / Re: Runcton Holme original parish register
« on: Sunday 14 January 18 01:04 GMT (UK)  »
Ages weren't generally shown on burials (aside from infants) before 1813.  The fact that the record shows she was a widow would indicate that if an age had been given this would have been included too.
