HEADFORD'S Bridgwater Somerset
« on: Monday 14 November 05 22:06 GMT (UK) »
 Info of WILLIAM HEADFORD'S parents and siblings wanted. 
WILLIAM was born, Bridgwater 1793, and died St John, Bridgwater on 17th Dec 1852. He was a Master Mariner, and married KEZIAH WHITE in Bridgwater on 31st March 1822. Can any one look up the marriage record to see if WILLIAMS Father is recorded.   KEZIAH died in 1839 and WILLIAM then married AMELIA BRIDGE on 4th April 1840, in St Mary's Parish Church, Bridgwater.   I have a copy certificate for the 2nd marriage but it does not show Fathers name for WILLIAM.  There were 3 children to the first marriage and 6 to the second.

Hi Possum,
 Not certain,  but don't think so. Children I do have are,
JANE, b 1826.                JOSEPH, b 1829  *              FANNY MATILDA, b 1835
ELIZABETH, b 1841       CHARLOTTE, b 1842         WILLIAM,  b 1845
BENJAMIN BENOMI, b 1847      JOSEPH, b 1851    AMELIA, b 1851
* JOSEPH died 9th Aug 1850.
Do you have a Bridgwater branch of the "HEADFORD CLAN" in your tree?

Regard,
Ian Headford

Possibly into my husbands.  But the research didn't belong to me, so I am trying to confirm it from another source.

Did you find Hannah Headford's parents? I have a Hannah Maria Headford baptised 26 May 1833 in Bridgwater, Somerset, daughter of James Headford c1797-1860) and Maria Dingley (c1804-1885), and am trying to find more details of James Headford - possibly brother of William Headford born c1793 mentioned by "Nerja".

Any connection information would be appreciate.

Hi, I have been trying for some years to acquire information of my 3 x Gt Grandpa William Headford born 1793. I have suspected he was brother to James and John, all living close to each other in Bridgwater, but so far found no documented proof. Have you managed to make a positive link??

There is a copy of the marriage certificate on Ancestry.com but certificates that far back do not give Fathers name. Date the same as you have, married at St Marys Church, Bridgwater. In the presence of Elizabeth Knight and - Richards, possibly Mary.
