James Freeman 1801 linstead suffolk
« on: Thursday 17 August 17 14:51 BST (UK) »
Hi
Ihave been researching James Freeman for a while he was married to Jane Roots
and iIhave lots of children for them .

I had been thinking his parents were
John freeman and Elizabeth ? (  not sure where i got that information from )
I had traced him through 1851,1871,1881  census

but I have on today  found him on the 1861 census.

 with his wife Jane, daughter  Tamar
and his Mum  Ann Kent widow aged 80  in Metfield

i looked a bit more and found ann kent on 1851 census Metfield

Ann Kent widow 70 proprieter of houses
with 2 grandsons
Charles kent, and Charles Aldous

i also found a marriage 1803 of ann freeman to thomas kent
and a death for ann kent aged 100

i could see that ann could be a widow in 1803  so could marry thomas kent
but who was the father for james freeman born 1801 in linstead or linstead magna

help who were his parents

andrea

Taken from Metfield parish register

Thomas Kent and Anne Freeman singleman and singlewoman both of this parish
Both signed X
Married 17th February 1803
Witnesses: Robert Kent and Geo. Barber

I couldn't find the baptism for James Freeman in Metfield or Linstead ~1801, but it looks as though he could be the illegitimate son of Anne Freeman?
