John Keeley - Starston, Norfolk. B. 1811
« on: Sunday 29 January 12 16:27 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help please. I am researching John Keeley b. 1811 Starston, Norfolk married to Susannah ? Together they had 10 children starting with Maria in 1835 and ending with Ellen in 1857. I cannot locate a marriage for them or Susannah's maiden name. Appears they remained in Norfolk looking at the census. John Keeley died in Depwade, Norfolk in 1867. I am also strruggling with John's parents. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you

Hi Kessy1

Can't see anything obvious on the Norfolk Marriage Index

There is a John Kelly married Susan Oakes 7 Jan 1834 in Rushall (which is near Starston)

here's the marriage

The baptism of Maria in Starston has the mothers name as Susan Oakes

This looks like John's baptism

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-266-12446-28131-15?cc=1416598&wc=13674624

you might also want to look at the images for 1804 (37 of 58) and 1812 (46 of 58)

and here's a baptism for a Susanna Oakes

I won't spoil all your fun, Susanna's parents were also married in Starston then went on to have more children in Rushall, you can find the PR's here

Thank you once again Yokel. I get frustrated at how easily others can find things. The links are very useful thank you but how would I look up other areas on Family Search, I cannot see how to use it properly? I would like to look up people in Holywell, Flintshire.

Hi

This link will take you to the main Family Search page for the British Isles, unfortunately not all Counties have images of the records like Norfolk (those that do have Browse Images beside them)

This site might also be useful

happy hunting  :)
