The 1702 christening for Henry Puttock/Puttick son of John can be seen here

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-DRJ9-6SY?i=717&cat=68648

This also gives his wife's name as Elizabeth.
At the bottom of that page there is also a marriage for Henry Puttick and Emma Randoll

The 1703 christening is again for Henry Puttock/Puttick son of John

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-DRJ9-H4M?i=719&cat=68648

At the bottom of this page there is a burial for Henry son of John Puttick so it looks like that Henry may have died. Oddly on the previous page there is a burial which seems to read "Henry son of Puttock" [see attachment]

So did that Henry christened in 1701 die? The 1702 christening looks like a potential candidate but that burial entry has puzzled me. Let me know if you have any ideas.

Very difficult since that burial record does not give a father's first name, but it should be considered.

The baptism on 12th September 1703 has the mother's name as Mary.

More questions to answer.

Definitely more questions to answer, and possibly a bigger puzzle. Given that the Henry I am investigating was married in 1723 it seems plausable that he was born around about this time, certainly not much later. Alternatively perhaps he was older?

The marriage between Henry and Emma may be worth following up, especially to see if they had a son who could fit the bill.

I'll see what else I can dig up. There are a number of post 1700 wills for Puttocks in Kirdford [indexed on Ancestry's UK Extracted Probate database] which should be viewable on Familysearch but I can't access them online at home [despite having an account]. Hopefully when I get to the National Archives next I can check them out there.

Many thanks again

Matt

There is possibly a Henry Puttick, son of John baptised at Kirdford  8 Jun 1701

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-6259-MKV?i=65&cc=1465706

You need to adjust the image to bring out the writing.

Possibly another Henry in July 1703, but the writing is very faded  :(

Thanks for those Nell. I've looked at both entries on both the parish registers and the bishops transcripts, which thankfully are clearer.

Just a quick update to my original post.

At the moment I don't know when/where Henry Puttock was born although I suspect it was around 1700 as he married Elizabeth Moon at Wisborough Green in 1723.

Elizabeth was the daughter of Henry Moon and Ann Duke who were married at Wisborough Green in 1691. Henry Moon may have been born in Fernhurst in 1662, the son of Richard Moon. So far this seems to be the only christening I can find within a reasonable distance from Wisborough Green.

So far I cannot find any sign of Ann though. I know there are Duke families in Wisborough Green and Billingshurst as I have found several wills for that name linked to those parishes but all bar one predates 1671.

So far the only christening I can find for a Henry Puttock is in Kirdford in 1713, but obviously at 10 he'd be too young to be marrying in 1723.

Many thanks everyone.

I am hoping someone here may be able to help me track down potential christenings for these  two people who were married at Wisborough Green in 1691.

I think Henry may have been born in Fernhurst, son of Richard Moon, in 1662 as so far this seems to be the only christening I can find within a reasonable distance from Wisborough Green.

So far I cannot find any sign of Ann though. I know there are Duke families in Wisborough Green and Billingshurst as I have found several wills for that name linked to those parishes but all bar one predates 1671.

Any suggestions for Ann would be welcomed as would any other ideas or thoughts/confirmations regarding Henry.

Many thanks everyone.

The CoL cemetery burial registers are images only, no searchable index. So you really need a rough idea of a death date (eg from the death register index, death certificate, newspaper report) and simply browse through the images for the period. If you're using a year and quarter from the death registration index, be sure to go beyond the end of the quarter as a burial could take place beyond the quarter.

I find it helps to enable the magnifier/loupe and the full screen mode, making it easier to read the entries (obviously, a larger screen helps too). And if you haven't noticed, you can use the left and right arrow keys to navigate through pages, which I find is quicker and simpler than using a mouse to click the page navigation areas.

Thanks for that Cuffie. I'll take a search through it to see if I can find my other London based burials. I presume it covers all of London?

Definitely a useful website for me to keep an eye on.

That website looks really useful. I haven't seen that site before so thanks for bring it to my attention. Can you do a surname search on it at all? I have a few more London people I'd like to look for if I can.

Many thanks for those Cuffie. I had planned to search for them tonight or tomorrow but haven't to it yet.

I've ordered Martha's death certificate and I'm ordering Robert's tomorrow. I am still trying  to find a marriage for Martha Murray [nee Dyke] and William Micklefield though.

Thanks again to you and everyone else for the help and extra info here.

Happy New Year to all

Good find cuffie!

This looks like Martha in 1901 at 4 Bridge St, MEOT

John KEMP   63   (Dock pensioner)
Martha           61

next door is Robert KEMP aged 40 and his wife. (most likely Robert George's son)
RG13/333 pg 45

This is the same address as on Robert and Martha's marriage in 1895. Robert's father's name is John, not sure why it has "John" on the 1901 census.

I would say that's definitely them. As for Robert's name being down as "John" I wonder if it was an error on the part of the enumerator who wrote it down. Robert appears in the 1897 and 1898 Electoral Registers as just "Robert Kemp". He is living at 4 Bridge Street, Stepney, and at the same address there is also "John Kemp". Unfortunately I can't find him in after that date.

John Kemp is at 4 Bridge Street on all Electoral Registers between 1894 and 1907.
