Demaine.
« on: Sunday 13 May 18 13:08 BST (UK) »
Hello  :)

I'm looking for a william demaine born 1679 in pateley bridge, but i'm not 100% certain whether he was born here. His christned name is gulielmi demaine. I'm not sure who he married but he had children. Hellena, issabella, anthonius, margreta and william. They all have latin names, which i'm not sure why? I know my surname is french orgin. I would love to know any information about gulielmi and who his parents were, i've hit a dead end.

Thank you.
Demaine, Yates, Fletcher, Grant, Williams, Dennell, Marsden, Bowling, Sole, Taylor,r

Welcome :)

Itís unlikely that they actually had Latin names, but names were Latinised in some church records.  Were they Roman Catholic?

Welcome to RootsChat!

At that period many parish registers were written in Latin, so it's not unusual to find the Latin version of ordinary English names. Some online databases are clever enough to realise that Gulielmus and William are the same name, but with others you might need to search for both.

I'm not aware of having any Demaine ancestors myself, but I have come across the name in the Skipton area, so that might be worth a look. There was also a vicar of Kildwick called Demaine, though about 100 years later than you're currently looking.

Sorry I can't help any more, but good luck.

Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

And a warm welcome to Rootschat from me.  :)

Could you let us know where the information about the birthplace and year comes from?  (Is it a transcript, an online tree, a deduction based on other sources?)

As arthurk says, there are several Demaines (with spelling variants) in the Skipton area (based on transcriptions on FreeREG) around the mid 1600s, but I haven't spotted a baptism for William c1679 yet - although not all parish registers have been transcribed.

Depending on when the children were baptised, there is a possible marriage (on FreeREG)  27 Sep 1715 Fewston (which is near Harrogate, about 10 miles from Pately Bridge) - William DEMAYNE and Margat BUTTERY.  (This might be the same person as William DUMAINE, son of John, baptised 19 Nov 1693 in Fewston).

No definitive solutions yet, but Rootschatters are on the case!

(p.s. - if you could cite sources for your information it would be very helpful - as you have traced the line back well over 300 years you probably already know that parish registers are far more reliable than some online trees!)

Thank you all for your replies.

I see. I know my surname demaine isnt english origin, it's french.
I was just confused as to why william was known as gulielmi and his children were christened with latin names, now i know.
Most of my demaine ancestors were born in pateley bridge, fewston, thurscross and leeds. I know there were other demaines living in the yorkshire area but i don't think they are my ancestors. I've researched back to william demaine (gulielmi) born 1679, but i can't find his parents. All it says is FNU which could mean fathers name uknown.

Thank you.
