Lookup Moll of Ely COMPLETED
« on: Saturday 19 April 08 03:08 BST (UK) »
I dont know quite how to proceed with the indexed info I have found.
I presume it requires a lookup to gain anything further.
I am actually trying to trace back the Moll family but after tracking them all the way from post WW2 Dover to Ely, they seem to be disappearing into the mists of time.

The family were in the Ely Holy Trinity parish.

Abraham Moll (D. Ely 1833 aged 35  - CFHS Burial Index)
Susanna   ?    (D. Ely 1880 )
I cannot find any marriage or birth record anywhere for them.
I have no idea what Abraham died of at the age of 35.

Their 3 children were all baptised in Ely HT - presumably they were all born there.
I found them all in the CFHS Baptism Index and the 2 younger ones in LDS IGI as follows:-

  ?        1825  Edward  Moll
5   Mar 1827  Susanna Moll
30 Dec 1828  Abraham Moll

Later I found Susanna and the children, after a long hunt, in the 1841 Census listed as "MOTT" , again in the CFHS site.
An Elizabeth Moll aged 15 was also in the census, but there seems to be no connection.

With the trend being to name the eldest son after his GF, I thought I may have found a link for Abraham senior in Blofield Norfolk but on further investigation its seems not. So I have no idea where he originated.
I have no idea about his wife Susanna's maiden name either,other than a later census recording her birthplace as Ely so I am guessing that she was a local who never really left the place.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Tizme. New Zealand.

Thanks for that Sue - I have never seen Boyds or know anything about it.

That certainly looks like the couple though.

Cheers,
Tizme.

Perhaps the following questions should have been asked in the General forum rather than here but does that mean that a copy of their marriage certificate would be available from a local Council Registry Office or Church?
 
Or is it merely an indication that the event took place and was noted at the time of Boyds compilation, but not necessarily still on file today?

Secondly,  does anyone know how complete the IGI database is for the Ely area?
I can find a Susanna Cornwell of about the right age but the family is in Bottisham which seems to be pretty close by.
Abraham could have arrived in Ely from anywhere I guess - would the marriage records of that era show such detail?

As far as I know Boyds is fairly accurate.
You would have to get a printout of the marriage from the parish registers. These are usually on film or fiche. Availability would be Cambridgeshire Record Office, or probably your local LDS centre.

Marriages from this era would tell you the parish the bride or groom were from at time of marriage (not necessarily birth parish), whether single or widowed, and with a couple of witnesses names. Also whether by banns or licence.

Maybe anyone else looking in could advise further.

Well if the Susannah Cornwall on the IGI is your one, this looks like the marriage of the parents.


1786 / CORNWALL  HOLMES/  DAY  ELZ / BOTTISHAM 

and if by a stroke of luck Holmes had his mothers maiden name as his christian name, then the following marriage appears.


1754 / CORNWELL  WM / HOLMES  ELZ / FULBOURN ST VIGOR

This might give you some idea of the availability of records on the IGI.
