Not sure this makes it any clearer?

Staffordshire / Re: Benjamin Biddulph/Biddle 1665 bap Hanbury - please can anyone help?

Thanks for finding those baptisms, the variety of surname spellings make it really tricky to find people especially as you say the variety increases further back you get!!!.


I find familysearch are better at picking up variations of spelling of names, although I think I had to do 'Biddulph' and 'Biddle' on different searches - didn't pick up those might have been variations of the same thing.
They certainly picked up the 'Bydulp' as a variation of 'Biddulph'.

Scotland / Handloom weavers photo and tongue twister
« on: Tuesday 29 September 20 06:35 BST (UK)  »
Just found this tongue twister on a postcard showing old hand-loom weavers in Strathaven, Avondale, Lanarkshire  on the Strathaven website.
http://www.geocities.ws/currie642002/index.htm

At the bottom of the photo it says:
ĎWhen a twister, a-twisitng, will twist him a twist
For the twisting his twist he three twines doth intwist;
But if one of the twines of the twist doth untwist,
The twine that untwisteth, untwisteth the twist.Ē

A), Fabulous picture if you have hand-loom weaving ancestors, and B) I wonder if they could reel off that tongue-twister at speed?!

Nope, looks as if Humphrey was from Hanbury. His baptism 12th March 1641 - under 'Humfridus Biddle' on familysearch.org. Father John (Johannis). Looks as if image should be on findmypast.

John (Johannes) Biddle baptised 4 Oct 1640 father John.
Also a baptism of a Margreta Bydulp at Hanbury 1632 father Johanni.

Looks like ever more creative spellings of the name the further back you go!

familysearch.org have the registers of Hanbury from 1574, which they also say are available on findmypast. The actual film on familysearch is only viewable at one of their libraries unfortunately, which I'm guessing are not open yet.
Have you looked through the film on findmypast to see if the years you can't find are missing? (not unheard of).
If your Biddulph family are not in them prior to the ones you've found, perhaps they came to Hanbury from somewhere else? I have families who moved to new places in the 1600s.
I see Humphrey Biddulph's marriage to Grace Clarke in 1682 was some 45 miles (see below) or so away in Yoxall. 
Have you searched neighbouring counties to Staffordshire? Took me years to find one of mine who I thought was from Cheshire, and turned out to come from just over the border in Staffordshire! (to be fair, I had to find other pieces of evidence to make sure he was the correct person, as it was a fairly common name).

Added:
There would also seem to be a Humfrey from Yoxall. I have been flipping through searching on familysearch, and not written everything down, but I would be double checking everything. I seem to think I saw a burial for the Humfrey at Yoxall before your Humfrey in 1700 and another marriage?
Also added:Realised there are two Hanburys. The other one is just a few miles from Yoxall. Google threw me a red herring! But I should have checked better.

The entry for Richard Biddle of Stubberland, Hanbury 21st June 1695 says there is no will, just an administration and Inventory.
He is a cooper.
So it may not be as helpful as you might wish.
Thatís not to say itís not worth seeing - you will at least get the executor(s), and you never know what turns up in an Inventory - sometimes a list of debts, owing and/or owed, which can be helpful.

https://www.staffsnameindexes.org.uk/default.aspx?RecordID=5671&Index=C&LastName=biddle&Place=&YearFrom=1640&YearTo=1720&Part=0&County=0&Gender=0&Occupation=&PageIndex=3

I see it is in the Lichfield Consistory Court. This entry on findmypast just gives a transcription on this Consistory court one.
There is also an entry on findmypast for Richard Biddle under the Diocese of Lichfield and Coventry wills, (different data base), which gives you both a transcription and the images, supposedly - Iím trying to do this on my phone, and although it goes to an image, it wonít quite download it! Are you saying you just get an image of the index on this one?
In which case you may have to contact Staffordshire Record Office, where all these wills are held, and get them to copy it for you. (not terribly expensive when Iíve done it in the past.)

The same goes for Graceís will of 1703.
There are 2 entries for this. Iíve found in the past that one of the entries gives you an image of the index, and the other is images of the actual will. Did you look at both entries for both of them?

From The Staffordshire Names Index just in case you missed any.
