Oxfordshire / Sarah Pratt
« on: Friday 02 November 07 20:36 GMT (UK)  »
I believe that Sarah Pratt was born in the Chacombe Banbury area of Oxfordshire around 1805, she married John Heritage in 1825 in Chacombe, and was buried there in 1888.
The Heritage family came from Chacombe right back to before 1690.
I have been looking for this woman's family for the last 10 years, but I can find nothing out about Sarah Pratt. Can any one help? :'(

Devon / looking for Newspaper article
« on: Sunday 21 October 07 20:41 BST (UK)  »
Hi everyone,
I am hoping that someone could do a look up for me in a Devonshire Newspaper.
My Husbands Grandfather John Henry Clarke was born Aug 1891 in Marldon near Paignton. His mother Mary Clarke was suppose to have been engaged at the time of conception to someone from a noted family.
This chap the father of John Henry was killed following the fall from a horse, before he could marry Mary.
So this is what I would like looking up to see if there are any details of someone dying following the fall from a horse.
The time span for this event would be Nov 1890 - Aug 1891
Many Thanks

Hi everyone
I have Jessima Prick who married Thomas Hazelwood 29 May 1792, I can find no other mention of her anywhere!
With an unusual christian name I would have thought she would have been easy to find but no such luck any help needed

Cornwall Completed Lookup Requests / DAVIES / REYNOLDS look up needed
« on: Thursday 18 October 07 12:57 BST (UK)  »
I have the Davies  & Reynolds line in Probus Cornwall.
Mary Ann Davies was born in 1837 daughter of Thomas Davies and Elizabeth Reynolds. I found the marriage of Thomas Davies to Elizabeth Reynolds in 1837 in St Agnes nr Truro.

On the 1841 census I found this family of Reynolds:

HO107/149/3 Folio 11 Page 15
Banns Vain
St. Agnes

REYNOLDS Jaspard M 50 Tin Miner Cornwall
REYNOLDS Mary F 50 Cornwall
REYNOLDS Richard M 25 Tin Miner Cornwall
REYNOLDS John M 20 Copper Miner Cornwall
REYNOLDS James M 15 Copper Miner Cornwall
REYNOLDS Mary F 15 Cornwall
REYNOLDS Susan F 13 Cornwall
REYNOLDS Julia F 7 Cornwall
 by searching the IGI I found the following baptisms of children to the couple: 

1. MARY REYNOLDS Gender: Female Christening: 03 JUN 1827 Saint Agnes Near Truro, Cornwall, England
2. ELIZABETH REYNOLDS Gender: Female Christening: 22 OCT 1815 Saint Agnes Near Truro, Cornwall, England
3. RICHARD REYNOLDS Gender: Male Christening: 26 MAY 1817 Saint Agnes Near Truro, Cornwall, England
4. JAMES REYNOLDS Gender: Male Christening: FEB 1823 Saint Agnes Near Truro, Cornwall, England
5. SUSAN REYNOLDS Gender: Female Christening: 11 APR 1836 Saint Agnes Near Truro, Cornwall, England
6. JOHN REYNOLDS Gender: Male Christening: 10 OCT 1819 Saint Agnes Near Truro, Cornwall, England
7. JULIA REYNOLDSGender: Female Christening: 11 APR 1836 Saint Agnes Near Truro, Cornwall, England
So I think I have the correct family for Elizabeth,
However my problem comes with Thomas Davies - The 1851 census states he was born St Agnes the only baptism I have found for anyone around this time is the son of John and Mary in 1813. I cant find a John and Mary in the 1841 census in Cornwall.
Can anyone do a lookup for me of the marriage of Thomas Davies and Mary Reynolds to see if his fathers name is stated and where he came from.
Thanks for a great site
