Quaker Records
« on: Sunday 24 May 15 16:02 BST (UK) »
Have been fighting a brick wall for ages with my Essex Marriage line.

Try putting 'Marriage' into a search engine.  ;D

A recent discovery of a will, Francis Marriage 1702 shows the family were Quakers. I've never researched them before, so does anyone know how I can go about it, please?

 Visit to TNA would not be easy for me.

Thanks

Quaker records are on Ancestry - should be available from your local reference library. There are a lot of Marriages in Essex there

Thanks Steve and Stan,

Just found a few on Ancestry and will also contact the Quaker FHS.

Ancestry never gave me results before, but using Card Index - Quaker records has.

Thanks for all the replies, which have helped to solve my puzzle and given me plenty of material to continue with.

I will be busy for ages now.

I am looking for Puplet family sometimes recorded as Puffett
They lived primarily at Essex. I have located some births  on ancestry however I cannot find the births for two ancestors Robert Puplet/ Pufflet
First Robert born about 1746 and then his born about 1786.

Regards
Jennifer

Hello Jennifer

I have a large 606 page (small type) book about British Quakers in Commerce covering 1775 - 1920. Information back as far as 1720 to 1740 can sometimes be found.

It is in Alphabetical order, so no index and all (or virtually all) are men in business. There is nothing for your surname Puplet, Puffett or Pufflet, under Pu ...

It is a long shot, but can you provide the name and especially surname of the Mother for the one born about 1786?

Mark
"George HOOD of Selby" Before 1812?

Born about 1785 (Yorkshire per 1841 Census)

Married Sarah RUSSELL at Selby 1815 newspaper - "both of that place".

Buried in the Quaker Burial Ground at Selby as "Not in Membership" in 1845, aged 60 years.

George HOOD of Selby was refused Membership of the Quakers in 1836.

Elected Overseer of the Poor of Selby in 1838.

Had both known (Selby) and unknown (some not stated 1846) property interests.

Possible (but unknown) links to COOK and/or PEARSON names.
