Thank you Carol for Baptisms. My email provider server is down, so I can't reply, but I will as soon as the server decides to co-operate! I do have those marriages, but thank you for offering.

Larkspur, I would love a photograph of the church tablet. There are Becher tombs/graves in the churchyard, but I have no idea how legible they are. It would be great to see them anyway. Thank you.

Thanks for the burials too Carol. Most of my problems are solved, apart from "losing" a Sarah Becher, Richard T M Becher & their Chidren Sarah [b 1852] & Henry [b 1856] after 1858, no baptisms for Susanna Wright & Eliza Wright Becher both born abt 1823 to Henry & Elizabeth Becher, a death for Thomas Samuel Lowe Becher [apparently in  1753] & a pre 1710 baptism for Michael Becher [son of Edward & Bridget]...and a name for the Miss Becher who [according to the newspapers] married a Henry Walker in May 1737 in Nottingham.

ok, that is still a few loose ends! But most of them are all neatly tucked in, so thank you.

new to this site, wondering if there is any connection of these BECHER family members to my great grandmother Alice Ethel Fane Becher...the Fane is an unusual name so hoping there is a connection?

Hi Sagebrush,
There certainly is a connection; same family, although your ancestor belonged to a slightly different branch. Do you have a date of Birth & death from Alice Ethel Fane Becher? I have her birth as about 1857 in Ontario.
What would you like to know? I have her BECHER ancestors back to the 1500's.

I am interested in whatever I can get!  She was born Oct 23 1857 and died Dec 29 1949 in Vancouver BC.  I have her immediate siblings and know the generations after her, but very little before that.  you can pm me if you prefer!

Thanks for Alice's dates. I have Alice buried at Old St Pauls Cemetery, London, Ontario. Do you know if that is correct? I have 7 siblings for her.
Her father was Henry Corry Rowley Becher [born 5 June 1817 at Gower St, Bedford Square, London, England. Died 6 July 1885 at Falconhurst, Sidcup, Kent. England]. He married on the 27th October 1841 to Sarah Evanson Leonard.
Henry C. R. Becher was the 10th & youngest child of Captain Alexander Becher [born 6th April 1770 at Shutt End, Staffordshire, England & was buried 23 Feb 1827 at St John the Evangelist, Smiths Square, Middlesex, England]. Alexander Becher married on the 11th May 1793 at Port Royal Jamaica to Frances Scott. Frances was the daughter of Rev John Scott & she was born in 1778 at Kingston, Jamaica. She was buried on the 23rd August 1859 at Turnham Green, London, Middlesex, England.
I have lots more...

awesome, thanks so much J!  I had heard the name of her father and have some history on him but nothing more than his politics and career!  anything you care to share is of interest...still figuring out the process on this and how best to keep track of it all!

i just looked at the death certificate for Alice Becher and she was buried in Vancouver.  I did find her siblings listed but see 5 Bechers and 4 1/2 siblings with the last name Marklem...
