Essex Lookup Requests / Re: marriage lookup please Chrishall

Thanks Olleym, I guess the fathers weren't recorded. Susan Cane may be Hannah's uncles' wife - if it's the family I'm researching.

Many thanks again

I've seen a reference in Boyd's to marriage of William ELCOCK and Hannah CANE in 1820 at Chrishall. Would it be possible to find out any more details on the record, particularly fathers' names and parishes?

Many thanks

Thank you again Ros for going to so much effort photographing the probate packages for me - much appreciated!

Suffolk Lookup Requests / Re: ELCOCK marriage lookup in Barrow please
« on: Tuesday 19 August 14 02:51 BST (UK)  »
Thanks Annes, it may well be the William Elcock I'm looking for, just didn't know about Thomas in 1731, as I have Ann 1734 and Mary 1738(?) plus a few later children. I have seen a couple of public trees with William Elcock married to Elizabeth Grimwood which fit with my tree, but don't want to believe it until I can find some proof myself, I'm sure you know what I mean!

Thanks again

Suffolk Lookup Requests / ELCOCK marriage lookup in Barrow please

I'm trying to find a marriage for William ELCOCK and Elizabeth probably in Barrow around 1733 (their first child was baptised at Barrow 26 Dec 1734). I have seen on IGI a marriage in Suffolk for "William ... Ock and Elizabeth ...Ke" on 13 Oct 1733, not sure why the names aren't transcribed properly - maybe they are unreadable? I don't know if it's possible, but could it be possible for someone to check, or to find a marriage at Barrow for me?

Thanks in advance

Cambridgeshire / Re: 1841, 1851 census look up please Thomas SYKES

Just looked at the marriage of Ann Sykes (Catton) and Philip Papworth on Free reg and noticed one of the witnesses Elizabeth Hitch - Thomas and Elizabeth's daughter Lucy married Mark Hitch (mother Elizabeth), so more evidence that Ann Catton married my Thomas Sykes. Wish I knew where Elizabeth and Ann married Thomas ...

Thanks again for everyone's help  :)

Thanks Anneb and David, although I think I'm getting more confused again! I was starting to wonder if "Elizabeth" was the same person as "Ann", although it would be hard to establish unless I can find any marriage records.

Unfortunately (for me), I think the Thomas Sykes who married Ann Cann at Willingham in 1816 was born in Elsworth and appears to be still living in 1851 at Huntingtonshire, so not my Thomas.

I guess my Thomas whilst born in Cambridgeshire around 1795 (according to 1841 census) wasn't necessarily married there - Elizabeth could have been from anywhere and married there? Or maybe he and Elizabeth weren't married, there is a death of Elizabeth Atkin (age 27) at Witcham in 1826? (Thanks David for the link to the Cambridgeshire Index) But where's the marriage for Thomas and Ann (Catton - thanks Anneb) around this time? Oh I'm going round in circles again!

You're right David, there must be another explanation ???

Oh that's great, thanks again Claire! Everyone on this forum is so helpful! I don't suppose you can see a death for Elizabeth Sykes around 1824-1826? (Hope it's not too rude to ask?)

Thank you so much Clare and Suz! That certainly seems the right family in 1841, and sounds very like Thomas must have died before 1851 when Ann remarries - I'll try to check the 1846 death of Thomas Sykes, sounds like him.

Shame though I was really hoping to find out where Thomas was born - haven't been able to find any birth records for him, only the one born in Elsworth which doesn't seem likely now. Also haven't found any death records for Elizabeth, although she must have died sometime between 1824 and 1826 around Witcham, at least the census shows I'm on the right track. Thanks again  :)
