Who was the mother of Elizabeth Hughes?
« on: Wednesday 18 October 17 01:11 BST (UK) »
My 2xgr.grandmother Elizabeth Hughes was Baptised 27th Feb. 1814 Vernham Dean, Hampshire.
Elizabeth emigrated to South Australia after her marriage.  Her father was John Hughes and mother
Elizabeth.  I am trying to find the maiden name of Elizabeth snr.  So far have been unable to locate
a marriage for John Hughes and Elizabeth.  Help needed please.

Regards,
Jen.

I wonder if the clergy got the mothers name wrong  :-\

Other baptisms Vernham Dean with father John Hughes - mother Susanna
Charles  26 March 1811
Henry 23 November 1817
Hannah    25 March 1821

Elizabeth would 'fit'  in with that family

Thankyou for your reply Rosie.  I have found a marriage of John Hughes & Susanna Smith who was the daughter of Isaac Smith & Elizabeth Ching.  The marriage was 1808 Tidcombe, Wiltshire.
This John Hughes was from Vernham Dean Hampshire.  I had not considered an error by the clergy
in the baptism entry.  I have noted from other researchers that my 2xgr.grandmother's name may have been Elizabeth Susanna Hughes, this could certainly suggest a connection with the John Hughes
Susanna Smith marriage.

After Rosie's response (reply 1) I would like to have the full baptism details for Elizabeth Hughes.
I only have an extracted record.  Perhaps there are sponsor names which could be linked to family.
Would I have to post on the Hampshire look-up board for this help?

Thanks,
Jen.

I think that you are on the right board for this look up.  I would not normally suggest starting a new post but it might be worthwhile with heading of Vernham Dean PR look up - make sure you link to this post

Rosie, Thankyou for your suggestion - my computer skills are limited, in spite of reading the 'how to' page on RootsChat linking to the original post is beyond me.  Maybe if I just mention my first post
on the Hampshire board it would be ok?

Elizabeth Hughes married Thomas Gibbs 1st. September, 1832, Vernham Dean.  Would the marriage certificates in Hampshire at this time record the names of both parents of the bride and groom?
