Hi Paul

Just trying to narrow it down. I hope to go to the archives on Tuesday after work but it does give me much time so I have to know what I am looking for. If I run out of time it will be 2-3 weeks before I can go again.

I will look for:

Babworth Baptisms Henry Townrow B. 1811  Lookup  1808 - 1815

Edwinstowe Marriage Henry Townrow & Hannah Warsop 10 May 1832 (doesn't give parents until 1837 but witnesses may be parents or siblings, may give occupation)

I'll do this for a start and let you know.

I would appricaite it but like I said ive wrote a letter to NA so hopfully they will get back to me.

Failing that I could always go down myself. I live in Barnsley which, although is over an hours drive isn't a million miles away.

Sorry to disagree but, as said previously, the censuses suggest Henry was not born Babworth  ???


1851 HO107 2121 510 8
Ranby, Babworth
Henry Townrow head 42 shepherd Notts Graves Lane

1861 RG9 2416 114 13
Eaton Street, Eaton, Notts
Henry Townrow head 52 ag lab Notts Headenly

Just don't want Jane to go off on a wild goose chase....

I think it would be more useful to check the Edingley baptisms. Also burials to see whether the Henry baptised there in 1805 could have been "replaced" by a later Henry. Just my humble opinion  ;D

Hi Heather

Thanks for the word of caution

I will check Edingley baptisms 1808-1815 as well

What burials should I check? Place and dates

Hi Paul

I pop into the archives quite often after work on a Tuesday so it's OK to do quick look ups. I don't advertise the fact as I would get inundated. I've done loads of looks ups over the past 18months. Its when it gets complicated or very time consuming that I would say that I can't do it.

Hi Jane :)

If you scroll back there was a Henry Townrow baptised Edingley in 1805 on the IGI. We were wondering if this was a mistranscribed 1808, or maybe that first Henry had died.

So I would locate that baptism first ...and if the year is correct as 1805, then check burials 1805-1809-ish to see if he could have died and the name passed to a second son.

Not sure I'm being very clear here! Hope you get the gist.

I'm sure she is. If it was me that was going I would look at the marriage first. Henry Townrow to Hannah Warsop at Edwinstowe on 10 May 1832. I'm not sure what it would tell me but, as there is a date and area it should be easy enough to find.
