Being super-picky here, but it may be confusing that there are a couple of typos in the first post.  Marriage mentioned first two times has the date as 1733, rather than 1773.


Oooooooooooops!!   All fixed.     

Thanks for that.                 :D

Hi Lizzie

Please forgive my tardiness in answering your post, I've not been on RC for quite some time.

I've been trying to link my Wallworks with yours, as I remember a picture you have on your website where your rellies are the spitting image of mine!    There must be a connection somewhere      ;D

As there seems to be a couple of Scavenger Hunts missing.... or lost(!!) I'll have to post this weeks Scavenger Hunt on here.

Sorry about that.

Anyway, gralorn would love for somebody to break down this 11 year old brick wall.  I'm sure you can help him.

Good Luck and Good Hunting.

As usual, this Hunt will remain open for any further information which may come in.

Welcome to another Scavenger Hunt, it's been a while since we had one.  This week you would be helping gralorn to knock down a wall four other families are kicking away at, I'm sure you can help.

Good Luck and Good Hunting

The Allards / Allwoods/ Alyards

I have, and others also, been trying to break down a ‘Proverbial Brick Wall’ found in Wetheringsett, Suffolk in 1773 for the last eleven (11) years. Is anyone able to assist?

We are trying to establish the parents of James Allwood (variation of Allard) who was married to Mary Potter at the church of All Saints on the 17th May 1773.

The register states: James Allwood of this parish, single man and Mary Potter. of this parish, single woman, Married 17th of May 1773, by Rayner Bellman (Curate). In the presence of Thomas Quinton and John Sheppard.

Interestingly James and John Sheppard signed their names (educated) Mary and Thomas made their mark. Sheppard was the Parish Clerk. Their Banns were read out on 5th, 12th and 18th of May 1773. Is anyone able to assist in helping us break down this wall and identyfying James parents in order to go further back in the Family History of the Allards. After 11 years there is no rush.

Additional information

There are that I know of four families trying to break down this proverbial wall. We all start at the marriage on 17 May 1773.
James died in July 1808 and was buried at Wetheringsett, All Saints on 24 July 1808.
Mary died in 1810 and was buried on the 10 September 1810 at Wetheringsett, All Saints.
They had the following children:
James Allard born 2 December 1773 at Mickfield, Suffolk, died 1853 was a twin to John Allard born 2 December 1773 at Mickfield, Suffolk, died 17th December 1773 (other twin)
John Allard born 23 March 1777 died 1831
Edmund Allard born 2 November 1778 died 1851 buried Kenton, Suffolk
Sarah Allard born 1780
Joseph Allard born 22 December 1782
Elizabeth Allard born 23 April 1775
William Allard born 1778
Mary Allard born 12 February 1786 (died the same day – infancy death)
Henry Allard born 2 February 1794 (died the same day – another infancy death)
Jane Allard born 27 April 1806 (died the same day – third infancy death in a row)
Jeremiah Allard born 5 September 1790 died 16 March 1860 (My direct descendant) he marries Lydia nee Warner.

That is about all I have about James & Mary, as I say we have lots from the marriage forwards, but nothing prior. Any assistance would really be most welcome indeed as there are lots of Allards prior to 1773, its getting the right one as you well know. Thanks, looking forward to see what may be found. Regards Graham

Thick as two short planks

I could name a few, the thick, not the planks.  I'm quite unaware of any planks having names, but then again, I could be mistaken!

It's time for this weeks Scavenger Hunt and sillgen has a brick wall which has been 25 years in the building, she's hoping it can finally be knocked down.
