Somerset / CHICK Milverton
« on: Friday 21 May 10 14:07 BST (UK)  »
Hi all

Trying to find out more about my Somerset roots. 2nd Great Grandfather Chales Chick apparently born in Milverton in 1828 married Mary Smyth of Sallins, County Kildare and moved to Edgebaston Warwickshire in 1862. His parents are eluding me at the moment. There seem to be a couple of Charles Chicks about, none of which fit all that well. Got the 51,61 and 71 census.

Any help would be appreciated

In 1861my 2nd Great Grand Uncle John A Overton was living at St Pancras Barracks where he was a Corporal. I was wanting some details about his service if possible but not sure where to look. Any suggestions? His brother Arnold was reputed to be a fine horseman and was in the Worcester Yeomanry Cav (Captain) before immigrating to New South Wales Australia to join the mounted police in the outback.
His nephew Francis C Overton was also a trooper in the 1st Life Guards at Combemere Barracks in 1901. Would love detail about that as well.
All are from Astley Worcestershire where the family were millers and its is believed the Earl of Warwick facilitated their recruitment.

Any help or suggestions appreciated

Hi all

Stuck finding my 3rd GGrandmother born 1812 in Whiteparish Wilts and died in Astley Worcestershire in 1875. I have her married to William Henry Overton in 1834 in Lower Mitton Worcs but before that no idea.

Cany clues? Amors seem popular in Wiltshire



Worcestershire / Overtons in Astley

Hi all

I am stuck in Astley with my 4th GGrandfather John Overton. He died in Astley in 1840 but was born in Lower Sapey (Sapey Pritchard) in 1775. Does anyone have any ideas about how to go from here? I have the whole line in Astley at Priors Mill and through to me but no idea about how to find John's parents. There are no more obviouos Overton's on Family Search as most seem to be based in Salop.

Any ideas?

Much appreciated
