Hi again, as you do not state at what age John Biddle died, I can see a Richard Biddle marrying in the same church an Eleanor Price 14th August 1815, she possibly died as again I can see baptiisms of children in same church Richard/Charlotte and in 1851 census:-

Richard Biddle 52 b Wooten under Edge
Charlotte 60 b London
Ann Cooper/Cowper Biddle 23 b Cardiff
Richard Biddle 18 b Ireland
Charles H Biddle 16 b Ireland
Tyrell Edward Biddle 5 b London
Plus Swinhoe visitors b India
Census ref HO107/1680/77/15

EDIT mmm unsure of marriage to Eleanor Price, as going on census 1841/51 he would have been 15/16?!

Pre 1837 marriages would not show his father, possibly where he was residing at marriage, not always his pob?!

Hi All

Thanks for the very interesting information, Keyboard, where were the family staying as on the 1851 Census in London, Widow Sarah and children are staying with Swinhoe family from India so that at least proves a link between John her late husband and Richard and would indicate that John was also born in Wootton.

Many thanks

David :D

Details of wedding as above but also provides John's address at the time.

You say he "died young" - do you have an idea of age at death?
