I didnt even compute that one- it does look like 2 siblings married 2 siblings...interesting!!

Trish- I havnt been able to find a record of the marriage of Elizabeth to Rev Reginald Blyth. All I have to go on is what is stated in Thomas Hawkins Snr's will.

Maybe she was Mary Elizabeth??

Hi Kylie,
I think we need help from an EXPERT here on the Norfolk Board with access to Parish Registers :D

I can only go from what I find on the IGI/Freereg etc and a bit of logical deduction.

Re the Marriage of Reginald Bligh there are a few submitted records with him marrying Mary abt 1783!.

But I have found one extra piece re another family member;
Christenings extracted from  IGI;
MARY Hawkins, 26 October 1790, St Margarets, Kings Lynn
HANNAH Hawkins,30 May 1795, Kings Lynn, Norfolk
George and Marys marriage is on Freereg.

Sorry I cant help much more than this.

Cheers,
Trish :)

No worries Trish- hopefully someone out there with access to the PR's can help out!!

Just checking- the 2 baptisms you mentioned for Mary and Hannah- are they both children of George and Mary Hawkins?? Just wondering, as I only have record of Mary- so wondering if Hannah died in infancy or some such?? I have their marriage already- it was in Tilney in 1788.

Thanks again for your help- fingers crossed we can access the PR's and get to the bottom of this family properly!

Yes, they are both parents George/Mary. Sorry I was rushing to make dinner! They are on the same batch on the IGI.

Best of luck,
Trish

I have been reading this dialogue with great interest.
Although I can see the 1783 marriage between Reginald Bligh & Mary Hawkins on the beta version of the Family Search org, I failed to find it on freereg. Am I missing something?
I find it inconceivable that this is a coincidence perhaps the more so given that the 1785 London marriage to Elizabeth Hawkins is a member submitted record on Family Search which I can't substantiate.
This will of Thomas Hawkins......what does it say exactly wrt his children.
I'd love to nail this one.

Hi Phil,
Welcome to Rootschat :)

The Marriage is on FreeREG, just search Mary Hawkins, Marriage, Norfolk, and it will come up as no 3. Or you can put in 1783 also and it is the only one that will come up.

Thanks for that.
Funny, because I was putting Kings Lynn as the place name as well as Norfolk, and nothing showed. An interesting lesson learned. I wonder how many more I've missed because of that quirk.
