I am trying to trace my Gales family and have got back to a marriage of a Thomas Gales to a Mary Pepper in 1813 in March.  On 1851 census Thomas has given birth place of Haddenham, Cambs. and his age as 60.  Does anyone have access to Haddenham parish records, please, and could do a look up circa 1790 for a birth of Thomas Gales.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

With many thanks.

Hello Galium

Many many thanks for that information.  I do not subscribe to Ancestry so very much appreciate your time and effort in checking the parish records for me.  I had come to a standstill on this line - so again, thank you very much.

With grateful thanks.

No problem :)

Joshua Gale and Elisabeth also had John (bapt 27 Oct 1788, Haddenham); and Ann (bapt 4 July 1792, Haddenham).
Benjamin  son of Joshua Gale and Mary  was also baptised at Haddenham 22 Dec 1793.

Hello Galium

That is brilliant - thank you.  I have just been on the IGI and found marriage of Joshua Gale and Elizabeth Morris in 1787 which fits in with birth of John.   I have also found birth of Elizabeth and other details relating to her family but not unfortunately Joshua but at least I am now another generation back and can do some research on Thomas' siblings.

With grateful thanks again.

With warmest wishes.

Hello Galium

Sorry to be a nuisance but...  Is there any chance you could check Haddenham records for marriage of Joshua Gale and Mary.  I have had a look on IGI c1792/1793 but nothing came up.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Sorry, although Ancestry do have  marriages at Haddenham, they only seem to go up to 1754.

There are only two Gale marriages shown in Haddenham PRs between 1570 and 1850-one in 1729 and one in 1787.

I can't find Joshua's baptism either-there's an Elizabeth bpt in 1730 and Benjamin in 1731-then a big gap until the baptisms of Joshua's children.

No burials after 1735.
