Not sure that any of these dates are right, but here's what I've collected from various sources:

Daniel Beard (b.1645) and Mary Lawrence (b.1643) had four sons: Samuel (b. 1665), Daniel (b.1667), Stephen (b.1668), and Nathanial (b.1670).

Daniel married Mary ____ and had five sons and five daughters: Samuel (1684), Samuel (b.1685), Sarah (b.1693), Beata (b.1694), John (b.1697), William (b.1701),  Judith (b.1701), Hannah (1702), Ursula (1703), and Samuel (b.1708, d.1747). Iím not sure if there were three Samuels, or if there was only one and the dates have been mixed up, but the source I got it from listed three separate Samuels.

Samuel (either b.1684 or b,1685) married Elizabeth ____ (b.1684) and had a daughter and two sons: Elizabeth(b.1720), John (b.1723), and Henry (b.1726).

John Beard married Mary Blizzard (b.1722) and had a son and two daughters: William(b.1736, d.1799), Sarah (b.1751), and Anne (b.1753)

William Beard married Mary Dicks (b.1736, d.1754) and had four sons and five daughters: William (b.1762, d.1793), George (b.1763), Nancy (b.1765), Betty (b.1766), Jane (b.1769), Mary (b.1773), Joseph (b.1775), Benjamin (b.1776), and Hannah (b.1778).

William married Alice Witts (b.1762) and had one son and one daughter: Stephen (b.1791, d.1875), and Eleanor (b.??)

Stephen married Rebecca Sharp (b.1791, d.1860)

Eleanor married Isaac Mann (b.??)

Stephen/Rebecca and Eleanor/Isaac both had large families so if anyone would like further information, let me know. I've only got names and dates, but I'm happy to share with anyone who would like them.

Hi all.
I have no Beard connections, as far as I know, but randomly spotted a gravestone for Samuel Beard, a policeman killed in the line of duty aged 37 in 1861, while ancestor-hunting in Littledean church graveyard. The story was interesting so I photographed it. Maybe it is of interest to someone. PM me and I can e-mail the photo (too big to attach to this post).

Hi,

Just read about the BEARD's. I have a Vera Gwendolen BEARD born 1895 Colchester, Essex who married Fred D. BARKER, 1921 in Colchester. They settled in Bristol and had 3 children 1]. Cyril b.1924. 2]. James, b.1927. 3]. Philip Reginald b.1928.
Does anyone have any further info about this family?

Regards,

Margaret103

Hello all,

New to RootsChat and read about Constable SAMUEL BEARD (born 1824 in Arlingham), whose memorial is in Little Dean churchyard. He is my wife's gggfather and we have seen and photographed the grave. I have all the details of his death from newspaper reports. Samuel married JANE MORTON in Cheltenham on 7 Dec 1844. His father's name was THOMAS, but I have no more details. Does this tie into any existing Beard tree, please?

Regards,

Peter

Hi Helina,
I have taken a fresh look at your original post, ignoring all subsequent posts.
Source: Gloucestershire Family History Society (GFHS) Gloucestershire Baptisms 1813-1837.
I have trawled through all the BEARD baptisms, and there are many, and have extracted all the St Mary, Arlingham baptisms.
Children of William & Ann BEARD, a Labourer of Arlingham:-
03/04/1825, Ann BEARD
13/05/1827, William BEARD
27/12/1829, Elizabeth BEARD
30/01/1833, Thomas Probyn BEARD
There are NO other BEARD baptisms in Arlingham 1813-1837.
Source: GFHS, Gloucestershire Marriage Index 1800-1837.
There is NO trace of a marriage between William BEARD & Ann that fits the baptism of their first child, Ann, 3rd April 1825.
Hope that helps?
Victor

I don't know if anyone can help me with our ancestors whose name was Beard.  The Beardís entered our family history when Mary Beard born in Donnington Shropshire 22.06.1800 married Richard Titley at Wrockwardine Shropshire on 23.04.1820.

The only marriage I was able to find was at Stockport St Mary's of Thomas Beard (1775)    to Jemima Pickering (1776) (Dickring/Pickring) on 03.06.1799.  Thomas at the time was a soldier.

Mary was the eldest of twelve children all born in Shropshire to Thomas and Jemima Beard.  The children were named
Mary 22.06.1800 Donnington
Jane 27.02.1803 Donnington
Elizabeth 02.06.1805 Albrighton
Sarah 15.02.1807 Albrighton
Thomas 12.03.1809 Albrighton
William 30.06.1811 Albrighton
Charles 05.02.1814 Albrighton
Frances 17.03.1816 Albrighton
George 01.03.1818 Albrighton
Joseph 30.05.1820 Albrighton
Henry 30.05.1820 Albrighton
John 22.04.1822 Albrighton


This is were our dilemma starts when we found an 1841 census for 1841 HO107/909/1 33 page 4 for Albrighton Shropshire for Thomas Beard and his wife Jemima. Thomas is an Ag Lab aged 65 and recorded as born in the county.  Jemima is aged 66 and also recorded as born in the county.

However at the same address of Clocks Hills Albrighton the 1851 census HO107 1987 127 page 18 Thomas Beard is recorded as widowed aged 75 an Ag Lab from Gloucestershire with what looks like Long Oaks.  I have had this checked by Gloucester history society who advises there is no such area in Gloucestershire and it must be Longhope.

The only baptism I could find was 22.10.1775 of a Thomas Beard at Longhope son of Thomas and Betty Beard.  Again one of 12 children so I got in touch with Longhope History Society and they gave me all the children of Thomas and his wife Betty

Joseph s. Thomas and Betty c. 3/1/1771 (born prior to marriage?)
Sarah d. Thomas and Betty c. 17/7/1774
Thomas s. Thomas and Betty c. 22/10/1775
Nancy d. Thomas and Betty c. 6/4/1777
James s. Thomas and Elizabeth c. 22/8/1779
Job s. Thomas and Elizabeth c. 10/12/1781 (d. 8/12/1781)
Charles s. Thomas and Elizabeth c. 20/4/1783
Lucy d. Thomas and Elizabeth c. 18/12/1785
William s. Thomas and Elizabeth c. 23/4/1789
George s. Thomas and Elizabeth c. 11/12/1791
Joel s. Thomas and Elizabeth c. 25/12/1793
Richard s. Thomas and Elizabeth c. 3/7/1796

From information given Longhope advised It is interesting to note at this point in the Register of Burials: Elizabeth Beard d. 3/7/1796 died it is the same day as her last child was born?

According to Longhope Thomas Beard (1754) married Betty Thackwell (1752) on 28/2/1774

Thomas Beard s. William and Mary c. 30/6/1754 - Betty Thackwell d Thomas and Winifred c 07.06.1752

There were no marriages at Longhope of William and Mary.Beard

Longhope also gave me Burials of a Mary Beard d. 20/4/1827: 85 (born abt. 1742)
Thomas Beard d. 12/10/1830: 90 (born abt. 1740) Could these have been our Thomas parentís who moved to Longhope?  Can't find a marriage or any children.

The problem is there seems to only be one Thomas baptised in Longhope and according to the history society I quote

ďIt would seem a fair assumption that after the death of Betty in 1796,
Thomas later remarried Mary Attwood (she does not appear in the Register
of Baptisms) in 1801 given their approximate ages. This leaves Thomas
(1775) who seems to have married Sarah Bowcut in 1809 and later Betty in
1814. He eventually died on 18/4/1842 aged 67. He is located in grave
32G of All Saints' ChurchĒ There is also a census 1841 for a Thomas Beard at Upper Longhope age 65

Anyone out there searching the same Beard family who can point me in the right direction or give me a clue as to were I go from here. ???
