Guernsey...RICHINGS Family
« on: Sunday 15 January 17 21:39 GMT (UK) »
Please can you help? ..I am looking for any descendants of Jacob Richings. He was a brewer in St.Peter Port. I think his son, Arthur had/worked on a fruit farm.

In 1871 Jacob. Elizabeth & Arthur are in Guernsey so looks like Arthur was an only child.  Jacob was a brewer

Jacob & Elizabeth are transcribed as Ritching in 1881 and still in Guernsey - he is a retired brewer

Elizabeth M     8 b Guernsey St Andrew

In 1901 Arthur & Emma have a son Reginald aged 8.  SArthur is still a fruit grower (employer)

Jacob aged 76 appears to have remarried to Fanny aged 45 b St Peter Port and is living next door to Arthur

Hello Carole W,

Thank you so much for getting back to me. although I have been 'doing' research for years I am absolutely 'deadly' when it comes to technology. Please bear with me while I unravel what I need to do next.

Are you related to the Richings family? I am hoping to find descendants of Jacob Richings. b.27. April 1824. Arthur was his son, as you mention. I didn't know about Reggie. Jacob left England mid 1860s?. If he has family, I would hope to share information with them.......

Hi

No connection to the family.

To find living descendants you would have to track Arthur's 3 children from 1901 onwards to determine marriages and what children they each had etc etc and then repeat the process with any children found

The daughter was Marguerite Elizabeth and she is still shown as Richings on the 1911 index so presumably unmarried.

There is a probate entry showing for Arthur snr who died 22.7.1916.  Administration was granted to his widow Emma

Jacob died 20.8.1905 and probate was granted to son Arthur

Thank you so much for this information. Much of what I have is from Find my Past. Census information for the Channel Islands comes through ok but I have yet to discover how to find Channel Islands BDMs, etc. Your information is magic because I do not have any of the non census stuff. I have really searched for Jacob's death certificate. I want to find out if there are any Richings related to Jacob on Guernsey or elsewhere who would like information about their family in Gloucestershire.
