My pleasure.

This has just come through in the normal way from Sue ...

Settlement Examination.
William Fewell the elder, From Great Dunmow to Easton Parva  Year 1777   ref 11/13/4


This is what I was trying to remember Glyn sending.  With what we now know it could be really important.  The phrase 'William the elder' is very interesting.  Could this explain what happened to William and Hannah I wonder ?

Anybody know what records the ref refers to and if anybody has it ??

Fewell, MacDougall, Stevens, Rainbird

Thanks for that piece of info Sue & M E, I knew that it was connected with the Resettlement Act, also the reference is that which you use to order the original document for viewing at the ERO and that's about the sum of my knowledge.  I have never used them myself but I think for a few troublesome ancestors I may have to start.
So it looks like William Fewell the elder was baptised in Great Easton (I think Parva is eqivalent to great) perhaps it is the clue we need.  "William the elder" certainly looks like a good candidate for the William who married Hannah and produced the William baptised 1744 at Felsted.  also if no other children of William & Hannah are found in Felsted, Gt Dunmow might be worth a look.  
Concentrating currently on:
Essex: Card, Harris, Stowell, Theobald/Tibbles & Turner.
Norfolk: Beale, Cork & Dalton.
Yorkshire: Oswald Sturdy birth/baptism c1708, Oswald where the devil are you?

Thanks Susie and Findem ...

As soon as I saw your note, Sue, the penny dropped.  It is of course the SEAX document reference.  I've used ERO - because of the density of information on fiche you get a tremendous amount of information for a very modest price ..... the only trouble is the wait (about 6 weeks).

So, the question is where from here ?   I think I'll mail Glyn to see if there was any more backgound.  Maybe a member of this forum has access to a copy already.

The Dunmow link has got to be worth following - according to my reasearches and databases such as Boyds, there seems to have been a slow migration of the Fewells eastwards and southwards from around Thaxted and Takeley starting in the 1600s - so Dunmow looks bang on track.

Anybody got copies of the Dunmow registers ?

Sorry ladies - I missed your messages about Samuel and Elizabeth.

Samuel Fewel (one 'l' again) married Elizabeth Johnson on 31st October 1835 at Chignall St James.  Witnesses were Thos Farmer and John*than Childs.  

I think it's fair to assume that Samuel was son of Samuel Fewel and Sophia Childs and was born 1816.

Hope this helps

Trevor

Hi All

Firstly Thanx Trevor for the info on above post  ;D much appreciated.

I have found another of James Fewell and Elizabeth Turner's children
 
below is an extract from a post by Jaq

RG9/1080/100
same household **
james fewell head age 38 agr lab
elizabeth wife age 40
william son agr lab
george son age 13
henry son age 11
charlotte dau age 8
lucy dau age 5

**apologies, i couldnt find the exact adress- is between OAK HALL/CHIGNALL Hall, enumerator [william barker]only gives names of public houses, halls & other larger buildings.but is in line with several buildings named Brick so it could be Brick road?

An earlier find,Thomas Fewell age 51 incidently,was a shoemaker RG9/1080/99 and his son Thomas G.Fewell was agr lab

hope this helps
