Have you seen the Fortescues in Bradfield on the IGI?  Best to view via Hugh Wallis.

Thank you very much for checking the Longworth Cemerary inscriptions!

I was very hopefull that they would shed some light on this couple and where they came from.  I wonder why they wouldn't have had a grave stone in the cemetary?  Perhaps it was damaged / lost?
Many people never had an expensive gravestone, though the Fortesques seem to have the wherewithall for this puspose.

The average life of a gravestone inscription is probably around 100-150 years, 200 year old ones only survive if the stone is in a sheltered spot or the stone itself is more resiliant than most to weathering.

Sorry John, there are no Fortescue/Foscue/Forsten marriages in Longworth.

Hi KN,

Thanks for checking so quickly!!

Much appreciated.

Too bad they wernt married there . . .

Good idea re the gravestones - maybe they just slowly weathered away.

Thanks also for the tip re Bradfield - looks like there were a few Forescues there earlier on (1500's and early 1600's) - including a couple of Francis'!

Sounds like it could be a feasable connection - just need to find the missing generations?

Any ideas?

cheers,

John

John

I apologise in advance for being a bit vague - tiredness I'm afraid.

I haven't really got a clear picture of your problem but when I went to Tom Browns School Museum in Uffington today I checked the Uffington Parish registers.

From 1709 to 1763 - there are 6 possibly relevant baptisms (there are others)

From 1733-1782 - there are 6 possibly relevant marriages

From 1793 - 1836 there are 5 possible relevant burials.

In the Uffington Churchyard Survey carried out by the Friends of the Museum between 2002 and 2009 we transcribed 11 Fortescue headstones.

I'm not sure what you have from the Uffington registers but if you would like any of the above details please let me know.

Regards
Cello

Hi Cello,

Thanks for taking the time to add this info - I am (pleasantly) suprised that people are still taking an interest in this thread!

Yes -  I have all the info from the Uffington parish records - but unfoirtunately they dont seem to go back far enough for me to connect all the dots . . . .

Thanks to the help from everyone on this chat site I have managed to stretch the line back one more generation (as outlined below) - to Francis and Elizabeth Fortescue who were buried in Longworth but lived in Baulking for a while - they seem to be the origional Fortescues of Baulking? 

I am now stuck on working out where they came from??  One would naturally assume Longworth - but cant seem to find them on the records . . .

Just when you think you have have gotten back far enough to be able to graft them into the mother tree - it seems like there is always another generation needed to make the link!

As always - any help from anyomne out there greatly appreciated.

regards,

John

Hi All,

Me again!

I decided to pull out the Fortescue file again and have another look and see if any new info has popped up re the family in Baulking . . .

Cant seem to find much new on the Internet - however, I had another look at the family from Buckland, and it seems that the original Francis Fortescue from the Baulking line and the original John Fortescue from the Buckland line probably came form the same parents?

I spent some time piecing together the Buckland line (see attached - sorry in advance for the messy scribble) - and the original John Fortescue would have been born in the same period as Francis Fortescue - who we assume was buried in Longworth in 1755.

Longworth is quite close to Buckland - so it makes sense that the original family ties in together somewhere around that area?

Just wondering if someone out there has access to the memorial inscriptions from the local parish church in Buckland - just to see if any of them shed any more light on the family and where they may have come from?

Also - wondering if anyone has any access to any of the older wills of the Buckland Fortescues.  I already have one will - of William Fortescue (snr) who died 1759.

Thanks!

John

Have you looked at the list of wills on the National Archives website?  There seem to be many more on there than the last time I looked.  Quite a few Fortescue ones - maybe something interesting?

Thanks KN!

Yes - I noticed that there seems to be more Wills available now on the NA website.  Unfortunately I cant seem to find any related to the end of line Fortescues I am hunting for, however I did find some useful ones for another family line I am working on!  (Quick and easy way to spend money!)

Thanks again for the tip!

cheers,

John
