My surname interst, DOWSE/DOUST/DOUSE & STILEMAN
« on: Wednesday 23 May 07 15:27 BST (UK) »
Hello,

If anyone is searching the same surnames as above in the area of Keevil  I would love to hear from you and also not forgetting the surname Jefferies.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Carino,

I am researching the SMITH family from Bratton.  I have a possible marriage between John Smith [abt 1791] and Mary Doust [abt 1786]

Do you have any information that could confirm this?

Kind regards,

Adrian.

Hi Adrian,

Just before I answer your question, where is Bratton ?  the only places I have for my Doust's are Keevil,  I've just had a look and no, sorry,  I haven't got a Mary Doust or a John Smith.

Try this link below
http://www.doustgenealogy.co.uk

you may find something on there and it will give you some information as to where the Doust originated from.

Good Luck,  sorry I couldn't be of any help.

All the best

Carino,

Bratton is a short distance south of Keevil....

Strange  ???  Neither of those marriages features in Batch Number: M152351 for Bratton Marriages 1542-1837 on the Hugh Wallis site.

There is an LDS member submission in the IGI giving the 1811 date but, obviously, that is suspect.  It might be useful to check if a Bratton Banns Register is extant, because it might record an alternative parish for either of the parties.

Have you seen the actual entry in PHILLIMORE's for yourself or is it a reference shown elsewhere?

That's great, because the next question I was about to ask was whether there was any possibility it was a Quaker marriage.  I assume now that it was an error of omission on the LDS transcriber's part because a search for the actual dates in the LDS batch produced a nil result.  If I were you, I'd post a lookup request for the marriage in the Bratton PR, in order to get details of the witnesses etc.
