Help to check my results
« on: Thursday 14 April 16 19:57 BST (UK) »
My GGGGF Joseph Davies was born 1796 St Martins Shropshire

He married a Sarah Knowles (b.1799 Cheshire)

They were married in 1821 at St Oswalds, Chester.

I think I have found Joseph's parents but want to check that I'm correct.

Can anyone check that I have this correct

Robert Davies born 1773, listed as The Rock, Shropshire? And
Sarah Davies.

As far as I know Davies was Sarah's maiden name too!
I don't have a date of birth or location for her though.

Thank you.

Yes I agree all those details. Took a while to work out what xtend was  ::) its christened  :)

Apparently The Rock is in or near Telford

When and where did they die ?

Joseph Dodd born 1847 Corbridge, Northumberland  and Isabella Dodd (nee Thirwell) born 1848 Allendale, Northumberland. In 1911  they were living at Leadgate, Durham.

(As well as there being several people of these names around the surname is sometimes given as Dodds)

Thanks.

I keep hitting a brick wall, I've now come to a halt as I'm completely confused going further back and finding Roberts parents.

I've never heard of the Rock before, think I will look into it a bit more.

It's not the Rock Telford, it's the Rock St Martins. Either way I've still never heard of it.

Robert's parents are Robert (a sawyer) and Mary

Did a search and there was a thread before that mentioned The Rock, well worth a look I think

Thank you, I'll have a read of that.

Yes, I found his parents were Robert and Mary, I have no maiden name for her and I have no dates of birth for either.

Then when I was searching I think Robert and Mary also had 2 other children, Ann (b.1770) and Rebecca (b.1775) but I'm not sure, but then I'm sure Robert was married previously to a woman named Ann and they had 1 daughter Mary! I'm really not sure on it all though.
