BECHER, LOWE & SHERBROOKE Families, of Oxton Hall, Southwell, Notts
« on: Wednesday 27 October 04 11:06 BST (UK) »
Hi

Does anyone have any connections, or references to these families:

BECHER, LOWE & SHERBROOKE

The SHERBROOKEs occupied OXTON HALL, Southwell, Nottingham from approx 1566 - 1900.

There was considerable inter-marriage between the families, and also a connection, by marriage, to a HANSON family, of Besthorpe, Notts.

Regards
Simon

I would be very interested to know what Church Sherbrook Lowe Becher was baptised in, as I have been hunting for his baptism for quite a while! His siblings Susanna 1823, Eliza Wright 1823 Elizabeth Lowe 1824, Mary Georgiana 1826, Caroline Bridget 1828, Richard Turner Michael 1830 & Edward William Henry Becher 1832 are also on my wish list. I know their names from a will, & approximate ages from various Census.

Hi

It was St.Marys (Minster)

There are 54 baptisms for Bechers at Southwell & a lot of Gentlemen &
Esquires so perhaps part of the same family.

Hi Sunflower, thanks for the Church name. They are all part of the same family [that of my mother] , but I had thought another member of my family had looked at the register & not found the children of Elizabeth & Henry Becher.
If it is possible, I would love the Baptism dates of the Becher children listed; [Especially the first two, as they seem to be about the same age & I have wondered if they are twins] ;

Susanna Wright Becher approx 1823,
Eliza Wright approx 1823
Elizabeth Lowe approx 1824,
Mary Georgiana approx 1826,
Caroline Bridget  approx 1828,
Richard Turner Michael approx 1830 &
Edward William Henry Becher approx 1832

Thank you,
From Jenny, Sydney, Australia

P.S. I have 28 Baptisms at St Mary, so I am missing quite a few it seems...

Thank you Carol very much! I have sent you a message.

Thanks to you too Larkspur; I do have most of that, but it is much appreciated. The Michael Becher with John Thomas Becher in the 1841 Census is my Great Great Grandfather. John Thomas Becher was his Uncle. Michael also became a Reverend, [as did both his brothers] & he emigrated to Australia & had 16 children, although sadly quite a few died [including John Thomas Becher named after his Uncle]. Michael's youngest brother Richard Savage French Fane Becher named one of his sons Sherard Becher.

Do you want a photo of the tablet in the church? I could also look for a grave not sure if there is one though..
