The Large Family from Prescot
« on: Saturday 19 May 12 16:34 BST (UK) »
Hi

Doing some research on the Large family from Prescot ( a weeks wait for the maiden name of the Great Grandfathers's mother before I could research this line, confirmed as Large so excited), managed using the Lancashire Online Parish Clerks to get back to Joshua Large who married Martha Booth 4 May 1731 Prescot but although the records are stated as being on line I can find no baptism of a Joshua Large. There is a Gabriel Large having children baptised in the 1690s but I can not see anything in the 1700s though my next step is a painful scroll line by line to see if anything resembles Joshua (early ones not searchable as with a name index). I would imagine as its Gabriel son of Joshua who is my next ancestor up that it is likely that Joshua was the son of Gabriel but either I can not see for looking the records or he was never baptised, or that years records are in an unreadable state.

Is anyone else researching this line, I have got so far Joshua Large > Gabriel Large >Esther Large>Thomas Large (illeg. 1 of three baptised children of Esther)> Mary Large all born at Prescot. Mary Large married George Taylor in 1871 Lancashire.

Kind Regards

Debs

Thanks

I found these two, from the date of marriage 1730 and death of Joshua 1770 I am guessing he may have been born between 1700-1710.  Thomas and Jonathan appear to be the first registered children to Gabriel they were born 1689 so there is no reason along as Gabriel and wife were not old when married that they could still be having children into the 1710s.

Thanks again

Joshua calls his first born son John,
I am in no doubt that Gabriel comes in as a family name
traditional naming patterns,I cant remember which way it goes but someone will explain it I am sure,

John 1732
Mary 1735
Joshua 1737
Daniell 1740
Gabriell 1742
possibly two more if they moved to Eccleston

Turns out that this entry is a 'best guess' - no proof.
