ALDIS Woodton and Stoke Holy Cross
« on: Monday 03 April 17 01:55 BST (UK) »
Good morning. I have 2 lines of ALDIS connected to Stoke Holy Cross c 1750. I am hoping to join these together, or find evidence they are NOT linked.

(1) My ancestors.  First event on record in SHC is the marriage between Sarah ALDIS and Anthony EVERETT. Free reg has

County   Norfolk
Place (link for place information)   Stoke Holy Cross
Church name   Holy Cross
Register type   Transcript
Marriage date   1758
Groom forename   Anthony
Groom surname   EVERETT
Groom condition   Single Man
Groom parish   Otp
Bride forename   Sarah
Bride surname   ALDES
Bride condition   Single Woman
Bride parish   Otp

I have looked for, and failed to find, this entry in the AT's. The Parish records are not on the browsable Parish records on Family Search and the registers do not appear in Find My Past original registers for Norfolk. Therefore this event is ONLY from 1 transcript, and has never been proved by me - no original record sighted so far.

Sarah nee ALDIS was born in Woodton 1734. d of William and Elizabeth nee CURTIS.

(2) A couple named James ALDIS and Sarah SUTTON married in Woodton 15th October 1781.  All their children were Chr in Stoke Holy Cross 1782 through to 1792.  Sarah nee SUTTON is buried there, as are many of her offspring, but no sign of husband James' burial.

James birth and death not yet found. Sarah nee SUTTON (I think) is the d of Martin and Elizabeth SUTTON Chr in Woodton

Stoke Holy Cross churchyard is NOT among the many which had headstones transcribed by the Women's Institute.

Thanks for reading - SHIRLEY

Witnesses to the 15 October 1781 marriage at Woodton are William Holmes and Westgate Copping, in case that helps.
