Leicestershire / Re: need to find 'bastardy records'
« on: Sunday 16 September 18 20:00 BST (UK)  »
I'v got a copy of the Leics FHS CD of criminal, prison and bastardy records for Leicestershire; it contains details of the "bastardy book" 1844-1874 and seems to cover most, if not all, the county. It also cover bastardy indictments between 1681-1838.

Of course, not all instances of illegitimate birth ended up in the court; so the number on the disc doesn't reflect the number of illegitimate births.

Xin, I'm PMing separately re your query.

I think I have a cd of bastardy records at home, although I canít check until this evening. Would you feel able to pm me any details, Xinia, because I canít look without them!

Maybe the way around sharing info for others benefit yet also keeping it private it to say that yes, resource x contains relevant information for various places between these dates - or not, as the case may be.

Nottinghamshire / Re: Elizabeth Fox - death/burial and mystery

More -- Any baptisms sightings for the children?

Can you be sure (i suppose not, actually!) that Joseph's second marriage wasn't bigamous? Or indeed that this was the same man?

You've given Joseph's parents and POB as in Long Whatton, but the Willm Cook in Lowdham in 1851 gives POB as Nottingham  --  ??

I see that Joseph's parents baptised another younger brother William (1811) - it seems odd that Joseph should call himself by a name already in use in his family - but maybe William didn't survive, although I can't see a burial (though it does state in the records that the church became "destitute of a regular Pator"!)

You say that "Elizabeth Fox" is in Long Whatton in 1841 with her parents -- do you mean with Joseph's parents? Are any children with her? I can't find her on first skin through the 1841 census. -- Found her - with William and Selener Garner? and Frances? The census is very faded!

My rather old notts FHS CD only has burials up to 1830 for Lowdham, which is no use for you.

But I'm rather confused - just a few questions:

1. The obvious - how do you know that Joseph/William/Fox/Cook were all the same person?

2. Have you found a marriage for Joseph and Elizabeth?
- EDITED TO ADD -- Yes, I've found one now in Long Whatton, 17 Nov 1828; although both parties were OTP on the marriage register, the banns state that Joseph was from Shepshed --

It doesnít look too hard to read. Are there specific words that are eluding you, or are you struggling with the writing generally?

"Yorks, Sheffield". This might not sound terribly useful but in fact it means you can rule out large swathes on the south and west of what is now Sheffield, as they used to be in Derbyshire.

Don't know where this might lead but

Entry No.189,  SEP 11, 1841, after Banns
JOHN LANGTON, full age, bach. FWK, of WHEAT St, s. of JOSEPH LANGTON, FWK

You may wish you hadn't asked!
John Langton's sister, Elizabeth, is another of my direct line ancestors. She married John Jeayes (other spellings are available!) and their daughter, Sarah Ann, married Thomas Kilner and Mary Ann nee Hudson's son, Thomas.
And when Mary Ann died, Thomas snr set up with one of John and Elizabeth's sisters, Eliza, who was widowed.
The families, including Eliza's daughter Maria, share grave plots in Welford.

Thomas Kilner was born in Enderby, and there were a lot of Jayes and plenty of Langtons also in Enderby so I suspect that the families may have known each other before moving into the town.

Nottinghamshire Lookup Requests / Greasley PRs
« on: Friday 10 August 18 17:17 BST (UK)  »
If anyone is going to the archive office, please could I ask for a lookup if they have time?

On my CD, Elizabeth COLLIE married Job KENNESON at Greasley on 15 Jan 1698. However, FindMyPast lists both this and a different name for the groom - Job ROWSON.

Is there anything on the PRs to explain this? Was he "also known as"? or is it just very difficult to read?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, both.

I agree that the image of the baptismal record looks like Margaret, not Mary Ann.
