Wiltshire Lookup Requests / Re: John PALMER b:1819 Bratton, Wiltshire, England
« on: Tuesday 23 June 09 17:50 BST (UK)  »
Hello Alan, well I have spent a very pleasant afternoon wandering around St James's Church and the Baptist Chapel; I'm afraid it wasn't very fruitfull, no Palmer gravestones at all ! I have spoken with the church wardens for both the church and the chapel.  It's not a local name they recognise ( whilst they cut the grass)  The older records for St James's are now in Chippenham, however all the records for the Baptist Chapel are still in place and they have agreed to let me ( next week) trawl through the boxes - exciting!  On a more positive.. I found an 1841 census for John Palmer it reads:
Palmer, John   M 25 b. 1816 England
Palmer, Samuel M 60 b. 1781 England
Palmer, Christiana F 20 b. 1821 England
Palmer, Jane F 19 b. 1822 England.
The address is Union Road, Great, St Helier, Jersey.  Which seemed to fit in with your John Palmer getting married the following year.

I also found a marriage for Samuel Palmer to Ann Godwin 2 June 1816 In Cricklade.  Samuel's occupation is listed as 'yeo'.  Witnesses Thomas Godwin, yeo Cricklade.  It is the only marriage I can find listed for Wiltshire at this time?

I hope this fits in with your search.  I will let you know if any Palmer's come up in the Baptist Chapel records.

Good luck.. Angie

Hi Alan,  give me a couple of days and I'll have a scout around the church yard(s).  Do you have any idea of addresses? The oldest part of Bratton is known as Luccombe, Stradbrooke and Lower Road.  Bratton 200 years ago was quite an industries village.  There was an iron works ( founded 1806 ) and Mill  with bakery and shops, although it's rural it is only a few miles from Westbury which had the railway. There was also a huge ( and still is) farming community.  I'll get back to you when I have the info.  Bye for now.  Angie

Hi, just read your post.  I don't know if it would be useful to you ( you may have all the info you need) but I live in Bratton, Wiltshire.  The parish registers are no longer held in St James's Church, they were moved to the new Chippenham offices.  If John Palmer came from Bratton his family may be in church yard and I would be happy to look for you.  We also have a Baptist Chapel in the village. Any info you need about the village, if I can help, I would be happy to.

Thank you very much for the help.  Your advice is great, I should be looking for a baptism rounded to 5 years either way which will certainly give me more scope.  I shall reinvestigate the details of Edwin's death.  Many thanks again :)

Hi, I'm trying to trace the baptism of Edwin Norris - Wiltshire - 1811 ?  I have traced his marriage to Martha Pinnell in Brinkworth, Wiltshire on 24 Dec 1834.  It states in the marriage registration that both Edwin and Martha were "of this parish" ? and  I can trace Martha Pinnell and her family through Brinkworth but have had no luck with Edwin.  1841 Census for Edwin & Martha and their children has their residence in the Cricklade & Wootton Bassett Workhouse, with Edwin's birth listed as 1811 Wiltshire.  Edwin died in the Workhouse in April 1854 and Martha went on to marry a few years later.  Perhaps someone is researching the Norris/Pinnell families from Wiltshire and may be able to help?   Many thanks

Hi, new to the site and hoping that someone may be able to guide me in the right direction.  Mary Mogridge married George Adams 3 Jan 1819, Taunton St James, Somerset.  I cannot trace a birth registration for Mary.  On various census she gives her birth place as either Taunton or Kings Brompton ( Brompton Regis now) with her birth date between 1799-1801;  so far  I have been unable to trace her; nor can I find any other Mogridge in these areas?  I'm looking for any info on Mogridge family's from Taunton and surrounding areas which may establish that Mary did indeed come from Somerset.  Hopefully someone else is researching the Adams/Mogridge family.  Many Thanks  :) COMPLETED
