Roydon near Diss
« on: Thursday 19 January 17 20:55 GMT (UK) »
Hello again!
Now I have an ancester that was married in Roydon, near Diss in 1759.  His children are all born there, but I cannot find either him or his wifes birth.  It does not appear that the records are on line.

His name is Thomas Baldery and his wife is Elizabeth Wicks.  I am guessing that they would be born around 1730, but I can find nothing on Ancestry at all.

Any thoughts please?
Terri

There is a Thomas Baldry  who witnessed the marriage of Samuel Wicks to Mary Dixon 11 July 1774 at Bressingham.
Is Samuel Wicks a nephew?

Thomas was not born Diss there is a John Balderow and Ann nee West who married at Bressingham 12 October 1726, having children at Diss 1727-1746 as John Baldery and Ann.
John 1727-1731
Sarah 1730
Ann 1733
Mary 1735
John 1736
Lydia 1739
Fanny 1742
Edward 1744
Edward 1745
John 1746-1748

Thomas Baldery left a will its at the Norfolk Record Office Ref NCC Will 1809 ref Bone 36.
When he died he was recorded as age 76 making DOB about 1733

**So how about Thomas Balderow bap 24 April 1734 of Richard and Susan at Bressingham.
Its close to Roydon near Diss

Thomas Baldrey came from Bressingham and Samuel Wicks/Wix was a witness to his marriage to Elizabeth Wicks.

The following may be useful, Norfolk Records Office
Will of Samuel Wix of Bressingham died 1788, Ref: ANF 1774-1778 folio 418 no 113.

Also Deeds of property of Samuel Wix  in Roydon and Diss dated 1778  ref: BRA 641/70, 734x1
Index states it also contains a copy of the will of Samuel Wix.

You could get some clues on the family tree.
