I'm now ruling out Joseph Roadknight if Linslade, Buckinghamshire being the one from Southam, I've found a will in the 1840's of a William Roadknight of Linslade who names his son Joseph in the will. My Joseph was the s/o Thomas. Back to the drawing board.....

Thanks for your help ShaunJ,

Yes, it is the same Joseph. I'm wondering however if he is "my" Joseph born 1807 in Southam, Warwickshire. I know he gave his place of birth as Linslade on the 1851 and 1861 census but on the 1841 he was born "out of county".  I think what I need to check now is whether there was a Joseph baptised around 1807 in Linslade.



Bedfordshire Lookup Requests / Roadnight marriage in Leighton Buzzard in 1829

I'm looking for the details of the marriage entry of Joseph ROADNIGHT who married Sarah RICHARDSON on 5th November 1829 in Leighton Buzzard. I can only find the marriage on Familysearch, I would like to know whether the marriage entry states where Joseph Roadknight was from. I have an inkling he was from Warwickshire but as yet can't find any proof.

Many thanks,

The COL number is the order number given to a certificate application from the GRO, I would think your person has ordered the certificate.

Roscommon / Re: Michael Coyne and Rose McGovern and family 1825 - 1850

Hi Anna,
Sorry for the late reply, I thought I'd already answered (but obviously hadn't). Have we been in touch before as I'm sure I've emailed one of Barbara's children before? My late mother in law (Nellie Evans nee Coyne) spoke fondly of Barbara and her brother Stan. Nellie passed away in February aged 90, her sister Jean passed away last year aged 91.
Where does your Mom say the Coyne's come from in Ireland? Nellie and her brother Horace thought Cork but Jean just remembered "land of the bogs" (Roscommon?). Michael (1842) and brother Peter both put Roscommon on the 1911 census. Do you have a marriage for their brother John Coyne as no one seems able to find a marriage for him to Elizabeth McGuire/ Maguire?

Hi Anna,
We have the same Michael Coyne and Ellen Tracey, they are my husband's Gg Grandparents.  As you know Michael's parents were Michael Coyne born c1808 (Roscommon?) and Rosa McGovern born c1811 - I'm completely stuck with these two as I can't find a marriage or their births. I can see from the Walsall censuses and Walsall catholic records who their children were but I can't find their births in Ireland. Michael (who married Ellen Tracey) and his brother Peter gave their place of birth as Roscommon. My line is Michael (1842) - Cornelius (1875) - Bernard Charles (1896).

I know Ellen Tracey's father Cornelius was born somewhere on 4 Apr 1799 (Gibraltar, Last Port of Call or Ireland depending on which census) and his wife was Susanna Ansell (I'm ok with the Ansell line as I'm back to mid 1700's).

If you have anything further back on the Coyne/ McGovern/ Tracey I would be delighted to know.

Lancashire / Re: Help needed on Ellen Coupe/ Cope possibly born Balderstone

Hi Mark,
My husband's grandmother is Ellen Elizabeth, Eveline's slightly older sister. My late mother in law spoke about Aunt Eveline (it was such a big family that she couldn't remember all her aunts and uncles). I've been doing family history for years and you're the first Wilcox cousin I've come into contact with! I'll private message you later so we can compare notes, at the moment I can't open my family history programme but as soon as I can I'll let you know what I have.

Hi Adrian,
You must be related to my husband (James & Ellen are his 2x G Grandparents), which Wilcox are you connected to? I can't find a marriage for James Wilcox to Ellen Cope/ Coupe at all and I haven't found a first marriage for him (might be worth checking St. Matthew's, Walsall records?). After Ellen's death he married Charlotte in Pelsall but in 1881 she's in the workhouse and he is living with Henry & Elizabeth (he died not long after so presumably he was being nursed).
I've found Ellen's baptism in Balderstone but like Ellen the rest of the family apart from her brother George seem to have left the area in the 1840's.


Staffordshire / Re: Cannock Parish Records on CD from BMSGH
« on: Saturday 22 April 17 13:19 BST (UK)  »
I've just come across your question about Cannock. The transcript you mention is the SPRS transcript and it only has what you list from your excel files.  Lichfield Record Office (unless they have already transferred the BTs to Stafford) have the BT's for Cannock and they do cover the records that were destroyed by fire but I can't tell you what they have for 1720, 1725 & 1726 etc. I have looked at the Cannock BT's on film via an LDS library which is why I know they exist and can warn you they are hard to read. I'm not aware of any transcripts unless they have one at Lichfield Record Office.
