Hi Craig
This would certainly be wonderful to find out. :)
Can you get back further than Isabella & George? I checked my names and while I do have several of each none are your Isabella or George.
Any further info would be helpful in trying to link them. fingers crossed

Hi Aikmans
Thank you for adding details to the family :)

James's sister Mary is my 6xg-grandmother.

I have a note to myself that, as it ties-in with the birth date for Esther Scott you found, is likely a great match:
christened: 7 Nov 1725 Greystoke
father: John Scott

Hopefully this may help us get back further :)

Warwickshire / BROOKS, John - Sutton Coldfield
« on: Wednesday 18 January 12 23:09 GMT (UK)  »
I am undertaking some research for a friend, and am stuck on some conflicting information regarding John BROOKS's parents, and I am hoping someone may be able to help with some definitive evidence.

John BROOKS married Dorothy FAULKNER, 10 Nov 1794 Sutton Coldfield. This information is fine, and I have all their children too, no problem.
BUT there is conflicting information regarding just which John BROOKS it was that married Dorothy and had all the children with her.
John no. 1 - born 5 May 1774 Sutton Coldfield, christened 6 May 1774 Sutton Coldfield.
(regardless of which John it is, he died 2 Nov 1828 Sutton Coldfield)
father: Francis BROOKS born 1737 Sutton Coldfield
mother: Anne MALLABAR
siblings: Ann, Fan, William, Amelia, George, James, Bessy

John no. 2 - born 5 Apr 1771 Sutton Coldfield
father: Charles BROOKS born 1740 Sutton Coldfield
mother: Ann BAKER born 1753 Tamworth in Arden
(married in Wootton Wawen)
siblings: Elizabeth, Mary

It is easy to see why there is some confusion. I have been hunting and hunting on ancestry for a tie-in document listing both Dorothy the wife and whichever parents this John has, but no luck. Nothing through google either. On ancestry, published trees have matched either John & parents with Dorothy and the children. And as far as I could read on their marriage banns, no parents were listed - and although there is a Brooks witness, I cannot make out the whole name.

Children of John and Dorothy are:
William, John, Elizabeth, Jarvis (Jervis), Jane, James, Mary, Ann, Hannah, Amelia, Henry, Emma.
While a match with the grandmothers name is found (they are the same for each possibility), neither possible grandfather's name has been used. Although, looking at possible sibling's names being repeated in their children, the information is leaning towards Francis/Ann as the parents.

I have names of John's possible grandparents from either match, and a bit further back, and it doesn't look like they are even related, as one line veers away from Sutton Coldfield into Nuneaton.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Hi Tyrrian and welcome.
I personally have quite a few names in the Westgarth line (including Joseph and wife Mary Blackett), and am happy to exchange more details. The Blacketts are an interesting line of people too.
I will private message you with my email addy and you can contact me directly if you wish.

Hi there light9uk  :)
John Edmondson & Esther Hodgson are my 8th great-grandparents.
I have found that Esther's father is called John, and sometimes she is known as Hester; and I have a few 'possible matches' for family relating to John Edmondson but nothing concrete.
I would love to be able to compare notes, and I will try and private message you my email address.

Thanks, clearly.
I did go to the website and found that I could only go on further to links suggested for research, which I have bookmarked for looking at more closely.
Phoning the office is unfortunately out, being from overseas, but I can try emailing once I have enough confident data for them to look up, thanks.

I have just been watching some episodes of Who Do You Think You Are? and envying the celebrities their place-hopping abilities... :)
