Hulver (nr Beccles)
« on: Friday 10 March 06 07:58 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to search for the christening of my husbands GT GT GT Grandmother.  I have had conflicting accounts concerning where she was born either Beccles or Hulver, through the hard work of others I can confirm she was not christened in Beccles. 

Can anybody help me as I cannot find Hulver on any parish record search lists, would it have been a parish in its own right or would it have come under another one as I know it was very tiny (only a handful of houses apparently). 

The year I am looking at is around 1812 and my husbands GGG Grandmother was called Jemima Smith.  I have found her birth place details from the various census' some say Beccles and some say Hulver, presumably as Hulver was so tiny and Beccles was the nearest town it was easier to put down Beccles.

I would be very grateful if anyone could help by letting me know the name of the parish Hulver was under so I can continue in my search.

Hi,

Don't know if this will help but this page talks of a marriage. Both bride and groom from Hulver => marriage in Henstead

Hi

Tanja is quite right.  Hulver Street is a small hamlet within the parish of Henstead.

The LDS only have film for 1539 -1753 for this parish in their film library, but the SRO sells the PR's for Henstead 1539 -1900 on fiche.

There is a village called Hulver in Suffolk. It is near to Shadingfield/ Sotterley area. I was grave yard hunting a few weeks ago and remember the road signs. I have confirmed this with the other half who was born in that area. For reserach purpose you will probably need to search under Blything or Wangford registration areas.
  Happy hunting
Angie

Welcome Jellyrang! :)

Hulver is a place, but it was not a parish in its own right but was part of the parish of Henstead.  Henstead is in Blything RD.

Best Wishes
Rick :)

Thanks everyone, I will have to try and sort out getting hold of the correct microfiche as I think that may be only way to find out Jemima's parents.

Hi Suffolkboyswife

Taken from Henstead PR:

Jemima Smith
Natural daughter of Mary Smith (late Butcher)
Privately baptised at Henstead 15th December 1811

Not sure what "natural daughter" means, I don't think she's illegitimate because other entries referred to base born, and this definitely said natural daughter.  Also, she appears to be married to a Smith as her maiden name is listed although no father's first name is mentioned.

I did have a quick look at Henstead marriages for a possible Smith/Butcher but couldn't find anything.

Seem to have answered one mystery but turned up another  :-\

Kind regards
Anne

Hi annes,

Thank you so much for looking all that info up for me, I can't believe you were able to find her :o.

As you say it has thrown up another mystery, but wouldn't family research be boring if there wasn't a mystery or 2..... or 3, or 4........... ;).

At least I have another name to go on not just Smith now ;D

thanks again

hi,

It looks like Jemima was illegitimate, is it possible that Mary had a husband that died but Jemima was born more than 9 months after his death and that Butcher was Mary's married name and Smith her Maiden name-that is one scenario that has been put to me.

Any help/opinions would be gratefully received as this Smith family is causing me so much grief  ;)
