Swain family in Leicestershire and Lincolnshire
« on: Wednesday 03 January 18 15:44 GMT (UK) »
Hi people,

I have been stuck on this topic for a while now and still no closer to finding out the answers.

I have got to a marriage in Branston, Leicesterhshire in 1816 between William Swain and Eleanor Johnson, it is with consent of guardians.

They have 9 Children all born in Branston:
Mary 1816 - 1818
Ann 1818 - 1818
Elizabeth 1819 - 1888 - married Samuel Keal
John 1820 - 1821
William 1822 - 1883 - married Ann Judson
Mary 1824
Ann 1827
John 1829
Richard 1831.

Now I have found stuff out about two of them and I descend from William Swain 1822.

I can not find nothing about them upto 1850 when William Gets married to Ann.

There are deaths for Eleanor Swain in Lincolnshire and Leicestershire but they are not her.

There is another Swain family in Branston , Leicestershire and I have tried to research them but got stuck too.

Any hints, tips or guidance would be great as I have been stuck on this for some time now.

Chris

What is it you want to know? Is it why they had to have consent to marry from their guardians ?

Hi Ellenmai,

I want to find them before the marriage in 1816, I know Eleanor's parents are Richard Johnson and Alice Burden.

Also with the consent, Eleanor was born in 1874 in Branston.

I can't find anything to do with her parents either haha.

This has had me scratching my head for years

Just to confuse things even more.

Attached is the pallots marriage for William and Eleanor, which when you search for it it comes up in Barnstaple, Devon but clearly says Branston, Leicestershire on it

Just checking - how do you know this?

The Pallot's issue must have been a typo when being transcribed.

Hi Josey,

I have got Baptism and Marriage records for Branston, I could be wrong and have read to much into the information.

This is what it says on the marriage:

6   03   Jun   1816   William   Swain   Bat   OTP   Elizabeth   Johnson   Spin   OTP   Banns

This is what it says on baptism
321   Eleanor   Johnson   Richard   Alice   26-Oct   1784G258   
305   Elizabeth   Johnson   Richard   Alice   09-Dec   1781   
52   Mary   Johnson   Richard   Alice   11-Sep   1774

Thank you for that Rosie99, I knew they got married but thought it was after 1851
