Hi my Great Great Grandfather Henry Brooks born 1826 his parents were Robert Lloyd and Elizabeth Bennet Brooks married 27th March 1826 St Johns Church, Bedminster, Bristol.  at present am obtaining a copy of their marriage record giving details of witnesses at wedding.  I believe that Charles Brooks and Elizabeth (surname unknown) was Elizabeth's Father and Mother.  Am keen to know more about the Brooks family of Bedminster area if anyone can shed any light on this family.  Thanks Karen.

An Elizabeth Bennett Brooks was baptized at Brislington in 1801. Not very likely that there would be two with exactly that name. Her parents were indeed Charles and Elizabeth.

There's only one Charles Brooks in the index of Bristol Diocese Marriages 1754-1812, and he married an Elizabeth in 1799, so it's very likely that's the right couple.

Many thanks DRH123  for Elizabeth's parents information and their marriage information which does look like the right parents for Elizabeth Bennett Brooks.  Much appreciated.

Thanks Karen

How can i view the index of Bristol Diocese Marriages 1754-1812 for Charles Brooks and Elizabeth Williams.

The index can be bought on a CD from the Bristol & Avon FHS.

http://www.bafhs.org.uk/bafhs-shop/cdroms

9 + pp. All marriages in the Bristol diocese for 60 years for much the same cost as a single marriage certificate from the GRO.  Or I see you can now download it for only 7.

However it is only an index, what I quoted is the entire entry for your marriage. Unless it's been transcribed elsewhere you can only see the full record at the Bristol RO, or I expect they would send you a photocopy for a small fee.  In most cases, the only information left out in the index is the names of the witnesses to the wedding. Sometimes they are relatives and give you a valuable clue, sometimes they're the church wardens and no help at all.

Hi,

Elizabeth Bennett Brooks now seems to be at

http://www.freereg.org.uk/cgi/SearchResults.pl?RecordType=Baptisms&RecordID=4427574

The FreeREG database is recompiled each month to incorporate new material and corrections. Presumably individual records can get new IDs in the process.

(You can search FreeREG yourself, as the name suggests it is completely free.  It is very fussy about the Christian name - it has to match exactly - so it's usually best to leave that blank. Just enter Brooks, Somerset, 1801 and choose baptisms: you'll get half a dozen matches, with Elizabeth as one of them.)
