Evening all - don't you just love it when Ancestry has had a free weekend?

Fordyce - Benjamin and Betty Jagger are not in Thornton in 1841, they are still in Clayton.  In fact I don't think they ever moved.

Hi guys

Thank you for your continued input.

Arthurk, if you look at the reply from Fordyce it doesn't look as if Benjamin remarried.

Pennines - I don't have an Ancestry subscription but will delve more the next time I'm at the library.

Arthurk - With regard to other siblings, I have Jonas, Mercy, one Henry, Harriet then, after a long gap, Jarvis and lastly Daniel.  Now I have the Ancestry tip I will take another look.

Good evening everyone and thank you to one and all for your input!

Viktoria - thank you so much for the background information

Arthurk - Jarvis's father, as noted on his marriage cert to Mary Bland, was Benjamin, a weaver of Clayton Heights.  I have a baptism for him in 1785 at Kipping.  I have a marriage for Benjamin in 1805 at Bradford to Betty Wood.

Trish - yes, see above

Fordyce - no, not the same Benjamin, see above

Bushinn1746 - thank you for the link to Clayton by Mr and Mrs Hirst.  I came across this the other day and this is what has re=awakened my interest in Jarvis's baptism.  Thank you so much for the newspaper clippings, are they available online?  I wonder what sort of game was being played in 1852?

Many thanks

Good afternoon all

I have just discovered my ancestor could not have been baptised in his local church/chapel as there wasn't one until approx. 10 years after he was born.  However, non-conformists were able to worship at "Old Dolphin" at Clayton from 1807 but I don't know if baptisms were allowed.

Therefore does anyone know if the records from circa 1820 to 1824 are available online for Birstall and Shelf please?

I am looking for Jarvis Jagger (sometimes noted as Gerves/Garves and Jaggar/Jaggars/Jaggers) born circa 1822.  The family lived at Clayton but as there was nowhere to worship, apart from "Old Dolphin", and people would travel as far away as Birstall and Shelf.

Good afternoon everyone

I wondered if anyone knows if the parish Marriage records for Thakeham, parish records are available online?  I have a civil registration of a marriage of Thomas Golds to Margaret Weston in the December quarter of 1929 but I'm having trouble getting the birth of Thomas.  Margaret hasn't been at all problematical!

Many thanks in anticipation

Thanks to all for the input but I am still drawing a blank.

I'm doing this on behalf of a friend and I think I can't progress now unless they want to purchase the birth/marriage/death certificates.

Happy hunting!

Monmouthshire / Abertillery

Good morning all  :)

Census records record the birthplace being as Abertillery which, I believe, is in Monmouthshire under the Registration of Bedwellty - feel free to correct me  ;D

I'm looking for Sarah Price whose birth was registered in the June quarter of 1876 or trying to find her on the 1881 Census.

Would anyone be able to help me out please?


Sussex / Deciphering an occupation
« on: Sunday 21 January 18 02:54 GMT (UK)  »
Would anyone be able to hazard a guess at what this man's occupation was?

He was aged 45 in the 1841 Census and living in a rural location.

There is one other the same on the page with a couple more just the initials F S
