I can't thank you enough Nigel!

Yes I think 1712 does seem unlikely, especially if she's still having children in 1779 ... maybe she was baptised as Elizabeth? :-\ "Elizabeth Ann" or "Ann Elizabeth"?

Don't know anything about dating, but it looks like Cales to me, not Coles. And possibly Caherconlish on the front? so maybe an Irish connection?

Thank you so much again. What a wealth of information!

It is weird that the 3 births in the middle should be of Elizabeth. It does seem a strange mistake to make. Although I do have a family in Cambridgeshire I'm puzzling over where the mother changes from Elizabeth to Ann (nice coincidence), but in that case I can't find any marriage records, so am quite stumped.

You've been so helpful, would it be possible to let me know who the witnesses were for John Messenger and Hannah Barnes marriage in 1810 and for Robert Barnes and Anne Daws in 1767?

Thanks so much once again :) I'm going to check now for some wills, great to find some transcriptions on the OFHS website.

Thank you again NDRIFT! I have had a quick look at the OFHS site (didn't quite get the name map graphic, but it was fun to watch), will definitely go back and have another look. As it seems I have a few Oxfordshire ancestors, it might be worthwhile investing in some cds.

If you don't mind, could you check the Cuddesdon records for me? I have Rebecca's siblings as James (1 Jun 1817) and Dinah (24 Oct 1819). I'm wondering if there were any more? Her parents were John MESSENGER and Hannah BARNES who were married at Cuddesdon 3 Nov 1810. I'm pretty sure Hannah was from Cuddesdon (I think bap 13 April 1789 of Robert and Hannah), though John may have been from Holton.

Thank you again, it's much appreciated.

Oh thank you so much! Was that available on line somewhere? I've been hunting for a while with no luck. Now I wonder what they were doing there? John was a butcher and I always assumed he came from a family of butchers, but I suppose he may have been learning at St Aldates.

I know who Rebecca (Rebekah)'s family are, but still can't find John's. I'll keep hunting, but might start another thread if I can't find anything.

Thanks again! :D

I'm trying to find a marriage for John FREEMAN (b 1812 Chilworth, Oxon) and Rebecca MESSENGER (b 1813 Denton, baptised at Cuddesdon, which I think were part of the same parish at the time?). They have their first child in 1834 in Ickford, but haven't had any luck finding a marriage for them.

Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I think knowing that it is St Paul's, the writing at the top "Marriage solemnised at St Paul's Church in the parish of Daybrook ..." seems reasonable. :)
