Family History Beginners Board / surviving court records, Bristol.
« on: Friday 14 April 17 12:41 BST (UK)  »
 Can anyone tell me what sort of records might exist that would perhaps yield more information of the Thomas Larkham mentioned below : or where any such might be held.

According to the Gloucestershire Prison Records  Thomas LARKHAM
aged 20 of St Augustines was released from prison (having been acquitted) on
5 April 1825. He had been charged (jointly with George COLE aged 18 of St
Augustines) “with having feloniously stolen taken and carried away one
linen pinafore the property of Charles Vaughan Esq." The record includes this
description of him:
“Dark brown hair dark grey eyes brown complexion long face wide mouth long
nose several moles on his right arm scars on the back of left hand two small
moles left side his neck Blacksmith Height 5  5 1/4.”
 Im looking for the parents of a fellow of this name and wonder if any such detail may be found in records relative to the case.

Somerset / Thomas and Ellen Larkken ( and innumerable variations of same)
« on: Tuesday 11 April 17 15:33 BST (UK)  »
 First I must say I've also posted seeking this pair on Gloucestershire Board and apologise for any confusion arising from dual posting..

I have DoB for Ellen ?  1760 spouse of Thomas Larkenn DoB 1755. Somerset ?
I cant find any record of them, although the age should exclude the likelihood of it I have them as parents of a son Thomas Larkkon(sic) born 1804. dead 1854. He married in Bristol .
Ive records enough to be sure of the younger Thomas but cant find a lead to his true parents and as I say Thom Lar**** and Ellen ? seem too old to fit the bill, none the less Id like to find them.

Gloucestershire / the elusive Larkoms !

Can anyone help with this fellow Thomas?

Im trying to find family in Gloucestershire/Somerset. Ive tried many variations of the name and come up empty.
Surname is  Larkken/Larkkon etc. I have Robert Joseph Larkkon born 1836; his dad Thomas Larkon born 1804 Somerset ? and name only formy Target his father, Thomas LARKENN born 1755 Bristol and wed to Ellen born 1760.
 I cant cite sources for this data and am having devilish trouble picking up  anything per IGI,BDM, or familytree .
