Quaker Records
« on: Monday 17 July 17 12:50 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

I've been researching my 6 x Great Grandfather...Joseph Johnson from Great Houghton. Through finding a baptism and marriage for his daughter, Hannah, I discovered that he was a Quaker. Hannah was baptised the day before her wedding (presumably so that she could get married). Now I am stuck...I believe Joseph's wife's name was Elizabeth (From the birth record of Hannah and her siblings), but can't find a marriage for them or a birth record for Joseph. Hannah was born on 22 Nov 1749 at Great Houghton...Baptised on 23 May 1773...Married on 24 May 1773 to Thomas Pike. I would love to go further back, so any help would be most appreciated, please, thank you,

Mary  :)

I have a missing Quaker marriage too from the same period.
I have been transcribing some Quaker records, here are some of yours

John   JONSON   Austin & Hannah   Northampton St Giles   1719   20-Apr   RG6 502
Alice   JONSON   Austin & Hannah   Northampton St Giles   1720   12-Sep   RG6 502
Elizabeth   JONSON   Joseph & Elizabeth   Great Houghton   1733   05-Sep   RG6 502
Joseph   JONSON   Joseph & Elizabeth   Great Houghton   1734   13-Dec   RG6 502
Hannah   JONSON   Joseph & Elizabeth   Great Houghton   1737   26-Apr   RG6 502
Austin   JONSON   Joseph & Elizabeth   Great Houghton   1739   17-Sep   RG6 502
John   JONSON   Joseph & Elizabeth   Great Houghton   1743   19-Aug   RG6 502
Ann   JONSON   Joseph & Elizabeth   Great Houghton   1747   25-Jul   RG6 502
Hannah   JONSON   Joseph & Elizabeth   Great Houghton   1749.5   22-Jan   RG6 502

There is no marriage for Austin and Hannah either.
Austin and Joseph may be brothers

Two Quaker burials recorded in the Northampton All Saints burial register.

Austin   JOHNSON      son of Joseph from Great Houghton      recorded in All Saints Register    1766      04-Jun   Northampton
Elizabeth   JOHNSON      wife of Joseph from Great Houghton      recorded in All Saints Register    1766      23-Jun   Northampton

There are more Johnsons recorded, but not obviously connected to yours.

Thank you for the info...I have Joseph & Elizabeth's other children. Interesting to see another Austin Johnson there, would make sense if he were Joseph's brother I think. I have recently found a burial for an Austin Johnson in 1762...It says he was from Great Houghton. He died in London, but was buried in Northampton...Maybe this is the first Austin in your list, the one with Hannah?
