If this is them in 1851 yes Geoff E is correct

1851 Census
Saxilby, Lincs
Thomas Bell, 52
Lucy Bell, 45
Elizabeth Bell, 14
Norris Bell, 10
Myra Bell, 8
Mary Bell, 5
Charles Bell, 3

Something strange;
BELL, MYRA, Mothers mn   HOLMES***
GRO Reference: 1844  J Quarter in GAINSBURGH UNION  Volume 14  Page 351

FANNY 1851 has Mother as GOULDING
Cant find Norris's Birth Reg.
Charles 1847 has Mother as Goulding

Looks to me that Thomas a Widower at 1824 Marriage.

There are earlier Baptisms Saxilby to THOS/ELIZA
Ann 1817
Rebecca 1819
1st Marriage was to Elizabeth DENMAN 19 May 1817
Elizabeth was buried 19 Feb 1822 age 24, Wife of Thomas

Great find Trish...I was put off by the fact that in Thomas's second marriage it didn't say he was a widower  ::) The witnesses to his first marriage where Thomas Capes and John Dickinson...on his second marriage the witnesses were George and John but both surnames are illegible.

That Myra BELL was born at Fillingham, apparently dau of Elijah and Ann (in Fillingham in 1851).

Not to be confused with

Births Dec 1842
BELL    Mira        Lincoln    14   432 (mmn GOULDINGS)

;)

Yes Geoff E & trish1120, that is my Thomas Bell and his family. It is his parents I would like to find.
 A first marriage is a surprise, thanks Treetotal, but still no father's name.

Norris Bell ( Sargent Major ) is my link b.1840, baptised 3/1/1841 Saxilby. d. 1890 wellington NZ

Far too many Bells in Lincolnshire !!!!

Many thanks to you all,

Levley

Thanks chempat. I had found all of the Baptisms of Thomas/Lucys Children on FreeREG but coud not find a birth reg for Norris.
Also missed the Myra birth rego, Mother Gouldings Geoff E.

How common would Myra/Mira be as a christian name in that time frame?
I have not come across it very often.


FreeREG has Bishop Norton Baptisms in the right time frame c 1796 but no Thomas.

His Death Reg 1854 has him age 56

Levley,
 
I am also a descendant of William1756 and Jane1762.

Norris1841 (who ended up in Wellington NZ) was my Great Grandfather, and has colonial descendants in Africa and Australia as well as NZ.

As far as I can tell, the parents of William1756 were Jonathan and Anne (Parker) who married in Westborough in 1755 and lived in Doddington parish.

I have only just joined rootschat  (after seeing your messages). Like to make contact?
