Sorry I haven't been on line for a week to see your replies.

Sloe Gin you are you could well be right. My better half said something similar

Bumbled - I haven't gone further forward with the name as the surname changed by marriage.  If anything comes up though I will get in touch - thanks

Thankyou for replying.

I have looked through the parish records for similar names but unable to find anything as yet. Thanks for your suggestion of the wills.  I'll have a look to see if it helps.

This is probably a silly question but here goes - One of my ancestors is Giles Dearlove who married Elizabeth Crockford in Sonning 1757. The parish records spelt her name in this way. When I have found her birth the spelling is Croxford and her parents spelt the same. The further back I go the spelling is still Croxford

Do you think I am following the wrong family now or would I be on the right track and would it depend on the literacy of the scribe who wrote the original entries

Thanks for any ideas

Have checked the Caversham parish records for a marriage but can only find a William Turner and an Elizabeth Stevens  marriage in 1763.

I did find these children for a William and Ann Turner. Baptised in Caversham St. Peter

Richard 11 Aug 1776

Thanks so much for all your replies and the information you have given me. I never thought about the Banns being read in both parishes. 

I am grateful for the information about the Parish of Sonning and which Family History Society I need to use for future reference

Harry, thank you for confirming their marriage, children and who Janes parents were, that was definitely an added bonus for me. Your a star.

I am more than happy to share any info I have in the Bradfield parish records - they also include the Tutts Clump Primitive Methodist Chapel records.

Thanks again


Berkshire / Dearlove and Adnams
« on: Saturday 01 May 10 18:43 BST (UK)  »
I have had the Bradfield parish records and found that Thomas Adnams had marriage banns read in 1813. Jane Dearlove was from Sonning and Thomas from the parish of Bradfield.

I am confused again as there are also banns for Thomas Adnams and an Ann Dearlove also in 1813 and the same months. Could this be correct?

My problem is that I can't find any reference to a Jane Dearlove being born in Sonning and after the Banns were read in Bradfield there wasn't a record of their marriage. Could they have married in Sonning? Is so could anyone help me as to which parish records Sonning comes under.

Their children Jane and Elizabeth were on the IGI as born Bradfield but the only child I could find in the records was William born in 1818

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Thank you both for your replies.

I agree that Jane seemed a bit old for a 1yr old. There seems to be a big gap between the first 3 children and the last 2. I never thought of grandchildren.

I will order the Bradfield parish records - thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

I have a Thomas Adnams married to Jane??? I have been trying to find a marriage for them without success. Have searched all parish records on line

On the 41 and 51 census they live in Liberty of Sonning, Berkshire. Janes name misspelt as Irva in the 51 census.

Their children were born in Bradfield, Berkshire and I thought I could order a childs birth cert as one child was born in 1840. I have searched for Charles Adnams  born 1840 but the only one I can find was born in Alverstoke - is this likely to be the one?

I would be happy to buy parish records but could someone advise me as to which ones I would need to purchase.

Thanks for any help and advice you can give me
