Suffolk Lookup Requests / Re: LAVENHAM marriage HOWE-DIXON
« on: Monday 22 October 18 10:28 BST (UK)  »
Yes, that's the christening, but I think it's a mis-transcription. Her parents are Thomas Howe and Mary nee Sparke. It may be that the marriage is also mistranscribed or that it was incorrectly written down in the first place. The name 'Sparke' is commonly written down as 'Smart', though it's a family name which goes back centuries as 'Sparke' in Lavenham and Great Waldingfield.

Suffolk Lookup Requests / LAVENHAM marriage HOWE-DIXON
« on: Sunday 21 October 18 22:43 BST (UK)  »
If anyone has a spare moment in the Suffolk Record Office, I'd be grateful if they could check for a marriage in Lavenham in 1794. I have a Sarah Howe, baptised in Lavenham in 1778, who is married with a child and living in Whitechapel by May 1794. Her husband is one John Dixon, who does not appear to have been liked by the Howe family, if Sarah's brother's will is anything to go by! They could have got married anywhere, but I can't find the marriage anywhere else and I'd like to check Lavenham. Thanks.

More births follow after William George.
Here is the family in Lambeth in 1851. George Pike born in Wiltshire

Yes, the Pike family were from Ramsbury in Wiltshire and I've been able to trace them back some generations there. It's the Lingard side that's defeated me!

PIKE, CHARLES  EDWIN     LINGARD

Yes, and he was christened in Norwood on 11 April 1841.

Are the witnesses to the marriage any help John Plummer and Susan Harvey?

No, they're not familiar - but that's a good idea. I could pursue these to see if there's a connection.

Yes, thanks. I have that. I'm trying to push Elizabeth's line back a bit and was hoping to find her and her baby, perhaps, with her parents. But I can't find any sign of George Lingard, grocer, in the 1841 census either.

Charles Edwin Pike, the son of George and his second wife Elizabeth, was born in Norwood, Surrey, Oct-Dec 1840 and christened there on 11 April 1841. He and his mother are missing from the 1841 census, where we find only George and the two children from his first marriage, Caroline and John. Charles Edwin died in 1844 and I'm using him to try to track down his mother and, perhaps, his grandparents (all I know is that his maternal grandfather was a grocer called George Lingard). If it's any use, Elizabeth was born in Aldgate Minories.

Yes, John Jones was indeed a papermaker. It's good to know where he was based. I wonder whether there was a paper making industry in or around Chichester.
