Huntingdonshire / Bernard's of Brampton Park, Huntingdon
« on: Friday 01 January 21 23:28 GMT (UK)  »
Wonder if someone can help.
I'm researching the Bernard family who lived in Brampton Park House and Huntingdon.
Specifically I'm looking for birth, burial and marriage details of the family of Sir John Bernard, 5th Baronet of Brampton and his wife Mary St John. From the earlier peerages they seem to have had at least 10 children (below), but I can't find any specific dates (baptism, burials, etc) for them.

The details I have to date are:
Sons -
1. Sir Robert Bernard, 4 Bart., “of Brampton Park and Huntingdon, co. Hunts.” only son & 2nd child, born Brampton Park, Huntingdonshire early 1740, died 2 January 1789
2. John Bernard, born October 1741 ??, died an infant
3. Richard Bernard, died an infant
4. Richard Bernard, died an infant
5. Francis Bernard, born 1738, died aged 12 years in 1750 or 1751 at Bishop-Stortford where he was at school.
6. William Bernard, born 1750, died at Thorpe 8 February 1766 in 15th year

Daughters -
1. Mary Bernard, married at St.Mary-le-Bone, London 8 July 1771, Robert Sparrow, esq., “of Worlingham Hall, nr Beccles, co. Suffolk”
2. Ann Bernard, died an infant
3. Elizabeth Bernard, died aged 7 years
4. Frances Bernard, died unm. in her 19th year

If anyone has access to the Brampton parish records, archives or any other sources, and can add more dates, etc to the above, I'd be very grateful.

Many thanks, Craig

Nottinghamshire / Hacker of East Bridgeford
« on: Sunday 04 October 20 20:37 BST (UK)  »
I'm trying to find out info on Robert Hacker, of East Bridgeford, a son of Rev Charles Hacker and his wife Anne Hartopp. I've been able to get some sketchy info from the internet and IGI but unable to access Ancestry or Notts. records at present.

What I have is.....

Robert Hacker, esq., “of East Bridgeford, co. Notts.”,
bap. Widmerpool, Nottingham 8 October 1713, bur. All Saints, Loughborough, co. Leics. 17 February 1738-39
marr. I think but not sure of his wife's name at all, Mary, bur. All Saints, Loughborough, co. Leics. 21 January 1737, They had issue (again I think?) 1 son and 4 daughters:
1. Robert Hacker,
bap. All Saints, Loughborough, co. Leics. 9 January 1731-32, bur. All Saints, Loughborough, co. Leics. 9 January 1735-36
2. Anne Hacker,
bap. All Saints, Loughborough, co. Leics. 9 October 1734
marr. at All Saints, Loughborough, co. Leics. 15 June 1756, Rev. Thomas Parkinson
3. Catherine Hacker,
bap. All Saints, Loughborough, co. Leics. 15 June 1735, died East Bridgeford, co. Notts. 3 December 1818
marr. Loughborough, co. Leics. 7 December 1752, Rev. Edward Heathcote, born 1733, died 1803,

4. I know there was another daughter called Mary, but I can't unearth any details of her.
There is a Mary Hacker, bap. All Saints, Loughborough, co. Leics. 17 April 1740, but she is born well after Robert's death. So I don't know where she fits in.

Any details or other info would be gratefully received.

Many thanks.

Renfrewshire / William Tait & Margaret Haldane
« on: Sunday 04 October 20 18:43 BST (UK)  »
Trying to find some more details on William Tait, merchant, Tron, Glasgow who died about 1817 and his wife Margaret Haldane who was born about 1738 and died Mound Place, Edinburgh 27 December 1818. Margaret was a daughter of Alexander Duncan, esq., 3rd “of Lundie”, Lord Provost of Dundee.

I have their marriage on Glasgow 13 July 1760 but sketchy details of their children.
They apparently had at least 6 sons. I only have knowledge of 4 ...
John, born Glasgow 22 March 1764 and Adam, born Glasgow 16 September 1765 from the IGI, and there was a Rev. Walter Tait and the better known Admiral James Haldane Tait, R.N, both born about 1769-1771.

If anyone has more details on the father and also the 6 sons I'd be grateful.

Many thanks

Berkshire / Mr Knight, Berkshire, husband of Elizabeth Masham
« on: Saturday 11 July 20 23:29 BST (UK)  »

Looking for the identity and family of a Mr Knight, of county Berkshire who married Elizabeth, one of the daughters of William Masham, esq., of High Laver, co. Essex, a politician (c. 1615 - 1654-55) and his wife Elizabeth Trevor (born c.1620). This would be during the mid to late 17th century.

Can't find any leads online.

Thanks, Craig

Essex / Masham family in High Laver, Essex
« on: Saturday 11 July 20 23:24 BST (UK)  »

I'm doing some research on the Masham Family who lived at Oates Hall or Manor, High Laver, Essex during the 17th and 18th centuries, but can't find many details on line.

If anyone has access to the High Laver (All Saints) parish records I would appreciate if they could extract any births, marriages and burials during that period.

The main family members were Sir William Masham, 1st Baronet & Elizabeth Altham, née BarrIngton; their son William Masham & wife Elizabeth Trevor; their son Sir Francis Masham, 3rd Baronet and 2 wives Mary Scott and Damaris Chudworth; his son Sir Samuel Masham, Lord Masham and wife Abigail Hill (she became the famous favourite of Queen Anne).

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks, Craig

Suffolk / children of Francis Vernon, Earl of Shipbrook
« on: Wednesday 10 June 20 09:49 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if someone could help be search the Nacton, co. Suffolk baptism and burial records from between about 1747 (marriage) and 1783

I'm trying to find out some information about the family of Francis Vernon, 1 Earl of Shipbrook and his wife Alice Ibbotson. They were both buried at Nacton in 1783 and 1808 respectively.

However I believe they had at least 3 sons, Edward, George and Francis. The last was buried at Nacton in 1760. As the Earl seemed to have no heirs in 1783 I presume his children all died before him.

I would be much obliged if someone could help me look for any Vernon baptisms and burials between the above dates in Nacton.

Many thanks.

Other Countries / Bryant Mason, Bengal, India
« on: Tuesday 26 May 20 10:43 BST (UK)  »

I wondered if anyone can help source the marriage of a Bryant Mason, esq., (who joined the East India Company in 1780 at the age of 18, arrived in India 1781, a civil servant in the East Indies Company, Senior merchant Bengal CS, and he remained in India for the rest of his life, eventually becoming Salt Agent in Hidgellee near Calcutta) and Elizabeth Browne who was apparently a daughter of a Colonel Samuel Browne. I think they married in India in 1785, but I can find no record.

Bryant drowned with his son Frank on the way back to England on 1809, but there is a burial  in Calcutta 21 January 1802 of another Bryant Mason who I presume might be another son. Can anyone source his birth/baptism or any other details of this Bryan junior?

Many thanks, Craig

« on: Monday 25 May 20 17:09 BST (UK)  »

I'm researching the Mostyn family in Flintshire and would appreciate some help if anyone has access to the Whitford parish registers - baptisms and burials.
These are the families of 1) Sir Roger Mostyn, 3rd Baronet and his wife Essex Finch; 2) Sir Thomas Mostyn, 4th Baronet and his wife Sarah Western.
I would appreciate any baptism and burial details from these registers on this family.

Many thanks, Craig
