St. John's Chapel Baptism look up please
« on: Thursday 15 November 07 13:11 GMT (UK) »
Hello

I am trying to tie a relation into the Dent family from Stanhope (including St. John's Chapel). Some I know were baptised there, some may be in Stanhope

The people I am interested in are:

William Dent abt 1785 married to Martha Fairless abt 1784 (married 1802).

Their 3 children shown on IGI as baptised at St. John's Chapel:

John Dent 1802 married to Hannah Muschamp 1805 (married 1825).

Thomas Dent 1804 married to Francis Phillipson abt 1816 (married 1833 at St.Johns Chapel)

William Dent 1806 married to Jane Walston (married 1829)

The children of John Dent 1802 and Hannah
Martha 1826
George abt 1828
Mary Anne abt 1832
William abt abt 1834
Hannah abt 1836
Elizabeth abt 1838


Thanks a lot

Tony

I wasn't really sure what you wanted, but these are the baptisms of the children of William Dent and Martha:
1802
John Dent    b. 9 Oct    Christened 10 Oct   1st son of William Dent of Pinfoldhouse, miner, by his wife Martha Fairless
1804
Thomas Dent b. 21 Mar Christened 25 Mar 2nd son of William Dent of Pinfoldhouse, miner, by his wife Martha Fairless
1806
William Dent b. 17 Apr Christened 11 May 3rd son of William Dent of Pinfold house, miner, by his wife Martha Fairless

I have checked the baptisms for years 1813-1839 and the Baptisms of the children of John Dent and Hannah are (up to 1839):
date name of child father         mother
09.09.1826   Jane       John   Hannah   
16.06.1827   George                   John    Hannah
06.06.1829   Martha                    John   Hannah   
20.11.1831   Mary Anne   John   Hannah   
23.03.1834   William                   John   Hannah   
04.09.1836   Hannah                     John   Hannah   

(your Elizabeth does not appear in what I have so either her baptism was after 1839 or they had moved)

the children of Thomas & Frances are (up to 1839):
05.10.1834   Sarah      Thomas   Frances   
01.05.1836   John      Thomas   Frances   
29.04,1838   Thomas                   Thomas   Frances   

the children of William and Jane are (up to 1839):
04.09.1830   Thomas                   William   Jane   
21.10.1832   Jane       William   Jane   

hope this is of use

Thank you ever so much - it is just what I wanted. It is the first time I have had reference to a christening record for Martha Dent (my gg grand mother) and so confirms the link between her and this family. I thought it must be right, but it is great to get confirmaton.

If you don't mind would it be possible to check a couple of other things:

Are there any baptism records that would fit Wiliam Dent and Martha Fairless or evn their parents?

Also is there any evidence of children other than John, William and Thomas?


Again thanks for your help.

William DENT christened 01 Nov 1775 father John Dent
Siblings:
John Dent christened 09 Mar 1771
Jane Dent christened 13 Mar 1773
Sarah Dent christened 12 Apr 1778
Sarah Dent christened 22 Apr 1781

Nothing for Martha I suspect she may have been from a neighbouring parish.

No other children found - only the 3 already given

Hi !

I have in my possession a booklet entitled "The Dent Family From Durham To Downunder."

This document was produced by John Lionel Krempin & William Thomas Dent 4th. It has the history of the Dent Family back to John Dent in 1768 and the family's eventual arrival in Australia.

If you are not aware of this book, I can let you have relevant data, subject to copyright requirements, and/or put you in touch with the author's address.

Would this be of any use ?

Regards

Hi!
Thanks for the reply via pm. As I said in my Thursday 7 May posting, I have this book written on the Dent Family which starts on 28 March 1768 with the marriage of John Dent to Jane Thompson at Stanhope and follows the family through its Australian connections almost to the present day.
 The document is 116 pages long.
You may already have it. If you don't, I would be happy to answer any enquiry, providing the answer is in the book. Mainly, the book focuses on the history of Mark Dent who was married on 19 August 1839 to Sarah Hann and the families that resulted.
The families still prosper in the Hunter Region of NSW Australia.

Hello Alan

Thanks very much for the offer. I haven't a copy by the way.

I suppose I have two aims - one is to check that what is in my tree is correct and secondly to possibly fill some gaps.

Would it be OK for me to write a document setting out what I think I know so that you can check it against the book. At the same time I could through up a few questions.

It would take me a couple of days to write and I would need your e:mail.

What do you think?

Hi again Alan

Does the book deal with any of the siblings of Mark? If not, it would make the document shorter.
