Suffolk / John BRETT of Bardwell Suffolk
« on: Sunday 17 April 16 15:13 BST (UK)  »
Hi, am looking for details on the above.   John Brett Junior married my 6th Great Aunt (Maternal) in 22nd September1756.  I have no other details about him.  My 6th great aunt is Dille Marata Jeffes, as is my 4 x great grandmother whom I suspect was named after her.  I have no details about  my aunt.  If anyone can supply some info on both of them, I would be so grateful.  I have looked on other sites but to no avail. 

Kind Regards

Hello one and all

I need your much valued help once again.  My 3 x Great Grandmother Eliza Lockwood was born in  Oakley Essex in about 1802.  She married my 3 x Great Grandfather Thomas Fellingham in Mendlesham Suffolk in 1822.  (Thomas was from there) I have great great grandfathers in the Lockwood line and most of them were born in Suffolk.  I cannot find Eliza's parents at all, having looked through the usual channels known to me.  I do feel there is a connection.  I would be so grateful if you could help.

Kind Regards


Suffolk / Rosa Christine JEFFRIES
« on: Tuesday 22 July 14 21:48 BST (UK)  »
Hello, I have a big brick wall. my 2 x great aunt Rosa married a John Briscoe (of whom I can find nothing).   They had a daughter Emily born 27 Oct 1856 in Denbigh Street London SW1.  She died in an asylum in 1925 (Canterbury, Kent).  A shot in the dark but I think John and Rosa would have married around 1856.  I can find nothing in the 1861 census.  However in the 1871 census onwards she is the Head of the House, in the 1911C she is living in Hampstead through her own means.

I have scrolled through the IGI and can only find Emily's christening details (she was christened on 31 Oct 1858 (sic) - possibly a typing error, at St Anne's Soho, Westminster England.  Rosa left about 6000 when she died in 1918 in Hampstead so it certainly looks as if she married into money.

If anyone can help I would be grateful.  You have helped me so much in the past when I have got stuck.

Kind Regards

Hi all, hope the bad wind on Monday did not affect you too much.

I am trying to find a link between Thomas Marshall born 1771 in Rayleigh Essex and Thomas Marshall born 1801 in Billericay.     Thomas Marshall Jnr died in 1875.    I have a gut feeling that Thomas Jnr was the son of Thomas Snr. 

Caroline Marshall was my Dad's grandmother.  Her husband being Richard Fryatt. 

My Dad and and his brother Geoff was taken in by Edgar Marshall and hi wife Flo.  Their father was the son of Richard and Caroline, Ernest. 

Edgar comes from Thomas Snr's line and Caroline from Thomas Jnr's line. 

I would be so grateful if anyone could help me marry the two lines up.

Warm Regards

John Brett Jun was married to Dille Marata Jeffes in 1756 in Bardwell.  His father is John Brett.  This is all the info I have.   John Jun was born in Bardwell.   Would be interested to hear from anyone who has any info on the two Johns and their offspring and spouses.

Many thanks

Suffolk / Dille Marata JEFFES

I am yet again turning to your wonderful site as I have a few  ??? lol

My 4 x Great Grandmother Dille was born abt 1765 in Bardwell Suffolk.  Her father was John Jeffes born in Sapiston.  Unfortunately I do not have any more information on him.  I am looking for more info on John and his wife and any siblings that Dille may have.I see with great interest in "Suffolk Stray Marriages" that a Susan Jeffes of Sapiston married a Henry Norton Palmer of Old Buckenham on 29th Sept 1836 and I wonder if Susan is a relation somewhere down the line.

I am trying to trace the Spanish background of my 4 x Great Grandmother.  Family lore has always maintained that there was a "Spanish Woman" on the tree.   There was an oil painting of her but unfortunately the relative I tried to contact about this had moved.

I would be so grateful if you could help me once again.

Dille died on 29th August 1842 at Sapiston.

Warm Regards

Hello all, hope you are enjoying the Easter Bank Holiday even if the temperatures are rather low.  I wonder if anyone can help with this one.

My 5 times Great Grandfather William Mills b. 1732 in Blickling Norfolk, died 1807 and buried at Horsham, St Faith, Norfolk, married Mary Hoogan Drake who is my 5 x Gt Grandmother.  You would think with a name like "Hoogan" in the equation, she would be easy to find.  I have searched all my known resources and am coming up with a blank.  The marriage took place 22nd Nov, 1758 at St Michael's Aysham, Norfolk.

Here is what I know about her (which is very little)

Mary Hoogan Drake b. abt 1736 and that is the sum total of my knowledge.   ::)

I am wondering if there are any Irish connections.   Can anyone shed some light???

Many thanks, Sparham

Devon / Philip Henry MILLS
« on: Tuesday 12 February 13 13:32 GMT (UK)  »
I have had so much help with Philip on the Norfolk forum but now he brings me to Devon.

Philip Henry Mills is my 3 x Great Uncle.   He was born in Pulham St Mary in 1797 and died in 1876 in Newton Abbott.  Philip was married to Susannah Mllls nee Rodway.  They had 2 daughters (mentioned in my 4 x Great Grandfather, Dr Ebenezer Mills also born in Norfolk). 

I can only find one census that mentions him and that is the 1871 census which has him down as Philip Henry Miles.  His daughters, Susanna and Julia seemed to have been farmed out so to speak.  Susana appears in the 1841C as living with her father Charles Andre Mills.  Charles never married and had no children.   In all of the censuses mentioned Susanna, the information is the same.

Julia appears in the 1841C as living with her grandmother Susanna (aka Sarah) and I can find nothing of Julia anywhere after that. 

A helpful researcher on Roots found a marriage for Fridericus Mills and Anna Maria Hauswald in 1859 in Germany, it has Philip and Susannah as parents.  I can find nothing more of Fred.

They had 2 servants in the 1871C in Devon, Elizabeth Smith  b 1851 in Cheriton and Mary Hone b. 1851 in Moortown Devon.   

If anyone knows of Philip and Susannah when they were in Devon, I would love to hear from you.


Norfolk / Charles Andre Mills
« on: Sunday 10 February 13 12:51 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All

Can anyone help with this sticky problem.  My 3 x Gt Uncle Charles Andre Mills was born in 1796 in St Mary Pulham Norfolk.   His parents were my 4th x Gt Grandparents, Ebenezer Mills and Marie Julienne Phillipine Andre.   Charles and Ebenezer were doctors.

The problem I am having is finding Charles' wife.  I have no maiden name but her name was Anna born c1806 in Mildenhall Suffolk.  They had a daughter Susanna born 1835 in the City of Norfolk, the same year that Charles and Anna married.

Have looked at Pallett's and Family Search.   I have found the christening details in family search but only Susanna's father is listed.  No mention of Anna in any of the census, perhaps she died in childbirth.   I find it odd that there is no reference to her anywhere. 

Any suggestions?

Many thanks
