John Merry born Approx 1822/24 Newland Gloucestershire
« on: Sunday 18 February 18 22:27 GMT (UK) »
Please could someone help
I am researching the parents and siblings of John Merry  born Newland Gloucestershire
Resided at Clearwell  Occupations    MIner and Engine Driver
His first marriage was in 1845 the second 1858
He Died  1884 
 I have his marriage certificate but there is blank space for his fathers name and occupation
So have hit a brick wall.

Many thanks

Is he this 1841 entry?  The absence of a fathers name on his marriage cert would suggest he was illegit whereas this entry appears to have a father

The Forest of Dean site has a baptism in Welsh Bicknor (about 6 miles from Newland) for a John Merry on 23 February 1823, the illegitimate son of Ann, a spinster.

1841 for Arlingham Gloucester - all surname Merry although originally transcribed as Marry.  All born in county

John 65
John 20
Thomas 11
Mary 50

The Forest of Dean transcript has the first marriage down as John THERRY bachelor, Miner and Mary Ann GOULDEN - at Newland - 25 October 1845.

Witnesses: John BUFFEY and Mark of HARPER.

Marriage on Ancestry - the second witness  Rhoda HARPER

1841 Census, Newland

Clearwell

William HARPER - 50
Mary HARPER - 80
Emily HARPER - 24
Arena?: HARPER - 16
Rhoda HARPER - 12

Had a look at Ancestry - and think possibly this is John MERRY aged 15 - and a Miner, : Dean Forest, Ross, District 3 - Page 7 of 8  (Clay Lane)  : Resigration District: COLEFORD
John MERRY says on the 1861, census he was born Coleford


---
?
Possible death of his mother: Ann MERRY - 14 July 1832, aged 45, Welsh Bicknor
