WOOLHOUSE Marriage C.1800 -1810
« on: Monday 25 August 08 12:54 BST (UK) »
Hello

I am trying to locate a parish record for a marriage between Richard Woolhouse  b.1783 ( died Eton 1817 age 34 )  and 'Avice'  ( don't know who she is or which parish she's from )

They had 3 chn. Avice b. 1810 Eton,  Richard, b.1811 Eton, and Ann ,b.1817 Eton.  These births are in Eton parish records.

Have searched all Eton parish records for a marriage with no result.  ???

I am in New Zealand making it difficult to search Bucks parish records. Would be immensely grateful if anyone could help me find this marriage .



Thanks

Dean

Hi
I haven't got any news really, just a few things for you to rule out.  I have checked Phillimore's Bucks marriages (I have cd), no Woolhouse or variations on that name.  I also checked my ancestry.com Parish Records cd for Bucks and again no luck.  I also looked at Berkshire Phillimore's but no luck here either.
Although they are not on Phillimores it doesn't rule them as being out of county as not all parish registers were included.
I have just checked batch records on IGI but they don't fit your Richard (http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers/CountyBuckingham.htm#PageTitle).
However, at Beaconsfield (only 18 miles away) there is a christening on the IGI (familysearch.org) for a Richard Woolhouse b. 7 Sept 1783 to Francis Woolhouse and Elizabeth.  Could this be your Richard?  My own family tended to move around Eton, Wooburn, Burnham and then find they came over the border from Berks.  I tend to use mapquest a lot to check my 'logic/assumptions'.  Unfortunately I could find no marriage details.

Hope this is of some use

Hello Steph

Thanks for taking the time to look anyway,  yes this is the same man, Richard Woolhouse , b. 1783 in Beaconsfield.  I suspect that they must have married outside the county , marriages often seem to take place in the bride's parish , in this case I don't know who Avice is or where she comes from so it's going to be a case of searching other surrounding counties, which will mean hundreds of parishes !  At least it's an uncommon surname , always a help.

Thanks anyway

Regards

Just to say that you are moving closer to my Thame Woolhouses not just in terms of distance but also with regard to names.

The name Francis figures in every generation and is not a very common name.

My earliest is Thomas Woolhouse who married Mary Walker in 1751/2.  They had a son Francis but he is not yours because he married Kitty West and they had a son Thomas in 1783. 

As I have said before these two families will eventually merge

Francis Woolhouse married Elizabeth Turner in 1761 , in Beaconsfield, and had a large family , ( including Francis b. 1776 , Richard b. 1783 )    from which I think most of the Bucks Woolhouses are descended,   a Francis Woolhouse died in Eton in 1818 aged 90 and I think this is the same man.  Perhaps your Thomas is related to the older Francis ?

These are the births I have found so far:

Edward 1764
Mary      1766
Elizabeth 1768
Anne      1770
Thomas   1772
Rebecca   1774
Francis     1776
William     1780 (1779 )
Richard    1783.



Francis Woolhouse who was born in 1776 married Phoebe Rankley in 1799 and they had a family in and around Upton cum Chalvey around 1800 - 1815
They had a son ( Richard ) born Upton cum Chalvey ) in 1811 , does anyone know what became of him?

Phoebe died in 1815     Francis died 1861

Perhaps you have already found the Richard Woolhouse marriage to Avice that you are looking for but just in case it helps:
Pallot's Marriage Index for England has an entry for Richard Woolhouse. b. married to Avis Rice. s. at St. Anne's, Limehouse, 1807.
