Hi Groom and Rosie

I have now traced back to a Richard Meek born in East Dean c1824. Any ideas where I can find him.

Many thanks

David

Hi Skoosh

According to the 1911 census John was born in 1848/9 in Stapleton Glos. the  Freebmd site shows a John Meek born 1852 son of Richard Meek & Hannah  Harrison who married in 1848. The 1851 Census shows Richard born c1824 in EastnDean. Any ideas where I can look beyond that please.

Many thanks

David

The marriage of John Meek to Frances Ellen Cleverly gives his father as Samuel Meek occ Railway signalman

Hi Groom

Good point, so I should be looking for a John Meek born 1852 in Stepleton son of a Samuel Meek. You mentioned a family tree on Ancestry, would this possibly have this information on it ?

many thanks

Hi Groom

I found a birth of John Meek in 1852 in Stapleton, son of Samuel Meek and Elvira, but I cannot find a marriage anywhere for these two ?

many thanks
