Holcombe rogus parish registers
« on: Monday 20 November 17 20:15 GMT (UK) »
Hi all, I wondered if anyone has access to the holcombe rogus parish registers?

I'm after a marriage for George Wood to an Elizabeth around 1800, maybe a birth for George before that. I'm not certain he was born there as I can't find him in the censuses. But I have two sons there for him, John Wood c1800 and Joseph c1806.

Any help would be great thanks,

Kev

Find My Past have a marriage at Holcombe Rogus 21 Mar 1800 George Wood to Elizabeth Collard. Both were 'of this parish'.

Witnesses look like John Wood and Samuel 'Tooze'?

If you go to the relevant parish page on GenUKI, there is a contact for Holcombe Rogus OPC (Online Parish Clerk):

Scroll down to "Genealogy".

I don't know if this is your George and Elizabeth- but a George Wood, aged 75 was buried at Holcombe Rogus on 29 Oct 1848 - 'of Hockworthy'.

An Elizabeth Wood aged 37 of Holcombe on 19 Dec 1813.

Thanks, Ages would both be about right, I can't find 'that' George in the 1841 census either though
