Probert
« on: Friday 22 February 08 14:16 GMT (UK) »
I have Meredith Probert, married Ann Flook/Flock in 1846 in Crickhowell, . Censuses have his place of birth as Radnor and I have a record of his parents being Thomas Probert and Sarah (?), probably taken from the 1841 census but for some reason I haven't made a note of where I found this information and nor have I entered dates or places of birth for Thomas and Sarah. How dim of me!

Can anyone shed any more light on this family please? Or, better still, does anyone else have them in their family?

Thanks,

Jen

Thank you, that was very speedy. Now to find out Sarah's maiden name! I have just realised that I have posted this in the wrong section, so may put a new querey up in the general Radnor section.

Cheers,

Jen

There doesn't seem to be an IGI birth entry for him. Some of Meredith's siblings are listed but others not. And no marriage record for Samuel to Sarah. How frustrating.

Yes, I was considering this and only hesitating because it is such a long time since she started the thread and hasn't posted anything else since. But it is certainly worth a try.
Regards,

Jen
