Thomas FREEMAN
« on: Saturday 24 April 10 11:13 BST (UK) »
Hi
I'm looking for any info on this fellow who was the father of Mary FREEMAN b c1749 in Ashwell.  Two possibles (at least) have been identified.

Thomas FREEMAN b c1722 Ashwell m Anne POPPLE at Edith Weston in 1845/46 (Anne was born 1720 Wing)

Thomas FREEMAN b c1712 Ashwell m Ann  ??  (Thomas' parents were Robert FREEMAN & Anne HERRING)

I'm trying to work out which one was Mary's father.

Any help appreciated thanks

Hi,

This might be a hint - although not proof. These are all the births of Mary and her siblings in Ashwell. As you can see they start at the right time for the marriage to Ann Popple to be the right one.

DAY   MTH   YEAR   FIRST NAMES   SURNAME   REL   PARENTS
31   AUG   1746   JOHN   FREEMAN   S/O   THOMAS/ANN
1   NOV   1747   WILLIAM   FREEMAN   S/O   THOMAS/ANN
29   MAR   1749   MARY   FREEMAN   D/O   THOMAS/ANN
3   JAN   1752   SARAH   FREEMAN   D/O   THOMAS/ANN
21   APR   1754   JOHN   FREEMAN   S/O   THOMAS/ANN
4   APR   1756   ANN   FREEMAN   D/O   THOMAS/ANN
21   SEP   1757   THOMAS   FREEMAN   S/O   THOMAS/ANN
20   FEB   1763   THOMAS   FREEMAN   S/O   THOMAS/ANN
7   APR   1765   ANN   FREEMAN   D/O   THOMAS/ANN

This is the marriage record for Thomas & Ann Popple.
4 FEB 1746/7  THOMAS FREEMAN OTP     ANN POPPLE OTP

I'm afraid I don't have the other Thomas Freeman marriage.

Hi Laura

Thanks for that, I certainly didn't have Mary's siblings and it does fit with marriage.  Food for thought.

Another question popped into my head, do you know if the other Thomas FREEMAN actually existed?

Hi Bob,

Yes he did - didn't think of that  :-[

5 OCT 1712  THOMAS FREEMAN  S/O ROBERT/ANNE ASHWELL

I couldn't find the c1722 baptism. The next Thomas Freeman baptised after 1712 was in 1757. Maybe there was only ever one Thomas? Unless the 1722 one was really baptised elsewhere of course.

Did you have the parent's marriage?:
30 JUN 1701  ROBERT FREEMAN  OTP  ANNE HERRING  OTP  ASHWELL

I found Anne Herring's baptism as well
25 DEC 1675  ANNE   HERRING   D/O  JOHN/ELIZABETH  ASHWELL


Let me know if you need more info.

Hi Laura

Thanks for that.

If there were two couples, Thomas & Ann, it would be fair to assume that they both had kids. So the list you gave me in your first post could be a mixture although the spread does look like one family.  I suppose it is possible that there was only one Thomas.

I'll think about that.

Cheers
