Essex / Re: Who is his father? I am STUCK!

Yes, many names are shortened in the same manner, depends who is the scribe.

Saml=Samuel, Nathl=Nathaniel, Michl=Michael are other examples, there are many more.

ps I can see Samuel Glasscock now its been mentioned  ;D

I think it is Ths (Thomas) Suckling rather than Jno
Can't read the second witness.

If you have quite a few ancestors in Essex, then yes it is worth subscribing.  You can get short subscriptions which is a little more reasonable. Make sure you have prepared your lookup list in advance to get your money's worth.

Donít necessarily dismiss the 1744 baptism, not all baptisms are within weeks of birth. The transcripts on Ancestry do not show adult births and you need to check if the parents baptised other children on the same day.

You also need to trace the other four possible Thomas Digbys

Durham / Re: The Brown Family

Yes I found that and it looks right.

I did find a Martin family with John and Ann but head of the family were not George and Elizabeth. Ages were a bit far out.

Just trying to think out of the box a little perhaps they were looking after Ann, who knows.

No but they were not always truthful on when stating when they arrived in America

From her marriage cert, it gives the impression she may have gone with her mother.

a very nice copy of the marriage certificate which confirms her mother as Ann Bulmer, no mention of her father though
