Culham Parish Registers - PALMER COMPLETE Thank you
« on: Sunday 13 May 07 10:04 BST (UK) »
This is my first use of Rootschat, so I hope I am doing this right!

I am looking for the PALMER  family in Culham.  I have found the following:-

Mary Palmer  (b. abt 1781 from 1841 Census)
Hannah Palmer, her dau, christened 11th May 1806 Culham from IGI.
Eliza Palmer, Hannah's dau, christened 29 th April 1827 Culham from IGI.

As there were no fathers names on the IGI, I am presuming that Hannah was illegitimate, as was her dau Eliza.

Mary went on to marry Joseph HARPER in Horsepath, Oxs in 1808 and Joseph seems to have taken on the whole family, as in 1841 Census Hannah has taken the name Harper as has another child of Hannah, William b.1832 Culham.

Any information would be gratefully received.  Thank you.

Dear KN,

What can I say!  I never thought I would get a reply so soon.  This has helped me such a lot and I will make a start this afternoon.

Thank you very much for taking the time to look this up for me.
