Hi Brownie

Welcome to Rootschat!

I don't see your Charles in Bedminster, but there is a Charles Brookes baptised at Westerleigh 29/7/1804 son of Henry and Mary. Could this be him?

Thanks Anne.  I will keep this in mind but I don't think this is him.  In 1851 census he declared his birthplace to be Bedminster, and in 1861 he said Bristol, Somerset.  I think Westerleigh is Gloucestershire.  Thanks for looking.  Brownie.

Westerleigh is about 10 miles from Bedminster, to the east of Bristol. There are some Brookes baptised in Bedminster. Might be worth looking into Henry and Mary. Sometimes children were baptised in the mother's place of origin.

Thanks again, Anne.  Do you happen to have details of any of the Brooks baptisms in Bedminster.  I will look into Henry and Mary but I do not see them on the 1841 census so not sure which way to progress. 

Many thanks, Brownie

Hello Brownie

Only two Brooks baptisms in Bedminster in your time period, surprising as there look to be quite a few marriages. Might be an indication that they were non-conformist?

5 Aug 1791 William of William and Mary Brooks
6 May 1798 Sarah of James and Sarah Brooks

Thanks again, Anne.  All information is gratefully received as I have no access to Bedminster parish records.  Incidentally the Charles Brooks I am researching moved to Monmouth before 1841 and is therefore shown on 3 censuses before he died.  May I ask how you are able to access the Bedminster records? 

Regards from Brownie.

Yes, I spotted your Charles in Monmouthshire. Very annoying that the baptism seems to be missing, do you get any clues from his children's names? I seem to remember only the younger ones were born in Monmouthshire though, so you might not have the names of all the older ones.

I've sent you a PM.

Have no marriage for Charles Brooks and his wife Honour (Fanny) but she came from Upton Bishop, Herefords, but have no maiden name for her.  Also have their daughter Hannah Berrow (or Barrow) Brooks reputedly born Gloucester City about 1822, then Ann (1828) Eliza (1830) and Charles junior (1833) all born in Monmouth for whom I have the baptisms.  Don't know if there were any in between, but no-one else on 1841 census.

Have looked in Mon and Hereford marriages but cannot find them.  Also cannot find baptism for this elder daughter Hannah.  In another census it says she was born in Herefordshire, never mind Gloucester! It's all good stuff though, keeps me busy!

Thanks for your help, Ann.  Regards, Brownie.
