1736 Hitcham Marriage Lookup Please
« on: Saturday 04 November 17 21:25 GMT (UK) »
Boyd's has a marriage record of John Clover marrying Martha Peg in Hitcham 1736.

If anyone has access to the registers I would be very grateful for a look up. Especially interested in groom's parish and occupation if mentioned, but any info would be more than welcome.

Thank you

Hi solidrock

Thanks for that, it is possibly one of their children that I did not have.

I am researching my Clover line from Essex. John Clover was married to a Martha and was a Miller in Great Oakley. He died in 1783 and the earliest record I have is the baptism of their daughter Martha Clover 1739 in Great Oakley. I've never found their marriage or John's baptism.

Am wondering if the Hitcham marriage is them, as the Clovers were a Milling family in Suffolk at the time.

Hi emelton

They did indeed have 9 children although 2 died in infancy.

My problem is I have no marriage for John & Martha and the Hitcham one seems likely but I need to confirm it.

There are very few Clover records in the area prior to John & Martha, suggesting they were from another area.

As well as the marriage in the Boyds list there is also a marriage on family search for a John Clever to a Martha Peg.. in Hart... Suffolk. I presume the two marriages are the same. The fs entry gives a date of 30 December 1736. Have you considered e-mailing Suffolk Record Office and asking for the details from the entry. They may charge but sometimes, if you have all the details and they don't have to do a time consuming search, they will do it for free. Worth a try.

Thanks Emelton

That's a good idea. I'll give it a try.
