Hi amondg:

May I ask please if St Nicholas might be a church in Fyfield, or a district?  I don't believe I know where Martha was buried, but I will have to check my records, I could be incorrect.

Thank you very much for your interest and help.  Lisa

Children of James and Martha Mumford all born Hatfield Broad Oak

James Mumford married Martha Grange by license 21 May 1822 St Mary the Virgin Church Hatfield Broad Oak, both were single and of the parish.
Witness ? E Mumford, William Patmore, John Porter.

Matilda Ann baptized 6 April 1823
Martha bap 26 September 1824
Mary Ann bap 30 October 1825
James bap 16 January 1827
Thomas bap 15 April 1828 (born 4 December 1827)
Sarah bap 2 May 1830 (born 27 November 1829)

ADDED on all baptism of above children James Mumford is a butcher

So Martha who married James Mumford is the daughter of Joseph and Sarah Grange.

Further proof.
Wills at Essex Record Office Ref D/ABW 129/2/81

Hi Lisajj:  My direct ancestor (James Mumford, born 1826) left England in 1857.  I haven't spent too much time researching his relatives so it is possible "your" James could be my James' distant relative.  My Mumfords were in the Great Dunmow/Hatfield Broad Oak and then Fyfield areas from c1740s to ??.  I believe my Mumfords were millers and butchers.  Of course James is a common name, but James is a name that was handed down several generations in the Mumford family.  Do you have a Mumford thread on RootsChat?  If so, I could have a look and see if I can be of any help with your research.

amondg:  Thank you so much for all of your research!  Some of the details I had already found (through ordering records), but I don't believe I knew where James and Martha were buried - it means a lot to me to know their final resting place.

I've been researching on and off since I was in college, which literally was decades ago.  It is time to make sure that everything that I've found and has been found by others is accurately recorded on my generation chart.

A few years ago I did stumble upon the Queen's Head photos and information, which I found fascinating.  I feel that part of the joy in researching is learning about the neighbourhoods, the structures and every day life that my ancestors experienced.

I actually do have a copy of James Mumford's (born 1800) and Joseph Grange's wills, but while I am thrilled to have the wills, nothing was mentioned about my James who left England (I was hoping that he would be included in his father's will).

I didn't realize that butcher was noted in all of the baptism records for James and Martha Mumford - that is very helpful to know.  I didn't know Joseph Grange's "abode" was Hatfield Mill - again, that's wonderful to find out.  There are probably other things that I didn't know prior to your findings, but the above were items that clearly stood out.  Note:  Over the years we have found other bits of information about the Mumfords and a bit about Joseph Grange and his wife Sarah Knight and two of the Grange daughters - I'm mentioning this so that it is known that we have found some facts in the past.  ;)  :)

amondg, thank you so much for your time, trouble and finding facts; it is really appreciated.  Lisa
