 Hi
Wanting to know more about - Aaron FLOOK born abt. 1744, and died abt. 1815 in Oldland, Gloucestershire, England. He married Hannah PRATTEN Dec 31, 1769 in St. George, Bristol, England, daughter of Joseph PRATTEN. She was born Abt. 1750 in Bitton, Gloucester, England, and died Oct 05, 1827 in St. George, Bristol, England.

Aron made a Will in 1814 where a daughter, Hannah was named but I have no details about her!

As Aaron had a Son called Joseph born 1774

??  assume you have (or can download, from the National Archives) the

Will of Joseph FLOOK Coalminer, Bitton - dated 8 May 1797

(Wills probated at The Prerogative Court of Canterbury) - listed on the Fluck Family of Gloucestershire Probate Records, on the 'net'.

Thanks Capetown and have now checked the site "The Fluck Family of Northern Gloucestershire" but found no new information that I could add to my information

Question: Daniel born 1778/80, son of Aaron FLOOK & Hannah PRATTEN but yet to find a christening for him? Most of his siblings were christened at Hanham, St George? He died in 1855.

Thanks 'amondg' for correction regarding Hannah (Aaron's wife) that she died on the 2nd, bur. 5, 1827.
I have the Hannah's information you have stated and death time but must had being another Hannah born between 1794 - 1814. Aaron died in 1815. Apparently 20 children in the marriage but I have only 18.

Yet to find Aaron Flook's christening information and his wife, Hannah. Can't help wondering about living condition back in those days but I get the impression that they did ok for themselves.

Daniel Flook born about 1777 to 1780 is my GG Grandfather via his first marriage to Hester Flook and their daughter Hester who married Robert Henry Cox. There does not seem to be a baptism for Daniel but we know Aaron & Hannah has a son Daniel as he is listed in Aaron's Will.

From the B&AFHS data I have baptisms for 14 children for Aaron & Hannah Flook plus one the mother is listed as Ann but looks correct as there is no other Aaron Flook and plus Daniel which makes 16. The LDS data on Family Search which is what Ancestry use has several discrepancies in the dates which could be transcription errors. In one Susanna was baptise 13 Dec 1772 and the other 13 Dec 1777 and Martha was baptised 17 Mar 1773 and the other 13 Mar 1793.

I have Susanna bapt. 13 Dec. 1772 but not sure where I got that information from. I know nothing about Martha! Was she born before Joseph  FLOOK?

The only information I have regarding your ancestors is that Hester is the 4th child of Daniel FLOOK and Hester FLOOK.
Census of 1851 - George COX, 12 yrs. was with his grandparents. . 
Children of Daniel FLOOK and Hester FLOOK are:
i.   George FLOOK, born 1803. Christening: Feb 12, 1803, St. George Bristol, England
ii.    Mark FLOOK, born 1804 in St. George, Gloucester, England.  Christening: Jul 01, 1804, St. George Bristol, England. He married Diana DAVIES Dec 23, 1826 in St. George, Bristol, England; born 1809 in Bitton, Gloucestershire, England. Occupation: 1851, Currier - (leather tanner) Diana DAVIES: Occupation: 1851, Dressmaker
iii.   Martha FLOOK, born 1808. Christening: Mar 05, 1808, St. George Bristol, England
iv.   Hester FLOOK, born 1809 in Kingswood, Oldland, Glouscestershire, England.

What does B&AFHS data stands for?
