Trying to find John Leach from Brimpton
« on: Saturday 28 January 17 13:12 GMT (UK) »
I have his marriage record - 16 Jan 1768 in Midgham, Berks to Phoebe Marshall. It says his residence is Brimpton.
I've had a look on the IGI but can't find him in Brimpton. He was probably born about 1744.
Any help in finding him would be much appreciated
Thanks

There is a baptism for a John Louch on 11 Feb 1733, son of John and Elizabeth in Bradfield, which is only about 8 miles from Brimpton.

Have you found your John's burial, and does it give his age at death? This might help to narrow down his dob.

I found his burial date as Aug 1797 in Brimpton. It was from the Berkshire Burial Index but unfortunately there is no age

That's a shame. However, I see that Phoebe was buried in Brimpton on 4 Mar 1831 aged 87 giving her dob approx 1744 so perhaps it might fit that John was a few years older.

I could only find 2 children of theirs baptised in Brimpton (Charles and Elizabeth [? after his mother?]) - and then not until well into the 1770s. Then I noticed it looks as if they moved about a bit:  they had John (1770) and William (1772) in Rickmansworth, Herts ; Maria in Midgham in 1773; James in Thatcham in 1775.
