Hi, I am descended from the same line and I am wondering if you have got any farther back than Josiah Ockendon (b 1725) and his wife Dorothy Green ( b 1732)? I am really stuck. I am also looking for the parents of Alice Chapman (1758-1824) and William Garpin (1785-1812)
Any information???
THhanks

Just refreshing my memory as I haven't done much more family tree for a while, sorry I came to a dead end with Josiah Ockendon and Dorothy Green, hoping to get back to it so will let you know if I can get any further back.
The Garpins are very elusive too, I have William Garpin b1780 as Ruth Garpin's father but  I don't even have Alice Chapman, so you have a bit more than me there. He was my great great great grandfather.
I've some copies of old documents about  Ruth's brother Robert , who died in the workhouse, quite interesting. Will PM you my eaddress.

Thanks I would love to see that. I have Lucy Hart ( 1787-1864) as Ruth Garpin's mother and Alice Chapman (1758-1824) as Joseph Ockendon's mother ( b. 1796) but that is second hand information and I would have to confirm. I will let you know if I have an luck further back.

Alice Chapman was a widow when she married Joseph Ockendon and I've so far been unable to find her first marriage to find her maiden name and then her parents.
I've quite a few copies of old Ockendon documents I can share with you if you email me your eaddress

Essex archives are now online, google Essex Records Office, go to right hand side click on Essex ancestors, the charge is 5-00 for 24 hours and for that you get as many views as you like of original documents. There are other higher prices for week/month/6 months/year and they are   always continuous viewing of original documents.
