Baldock Family
« on: Tuesday 13 January 09 14:23 GMT (UK) »
Just wondering whether any research into the Baldocks of Sussex.

My interest has been in the Rye and Mayfield areas however i have now found links to Wadhurst and it would be good to link the various areas of the family.

The connections i have are as follows:

Thomas Baldock C1677 Wadhurst and Elizabeth Loofe c1680 from Ticehurst, married 1702 Ticehurst.
Son Thomas 1705 Wadhurst and Ann Frie c1705 Mayfield, married 1727 Withyham lived in Rotherfield.
Son William 1741 Rotherfield married Agnes Holmes 1750 from Mayfield in 1773 in Mayfield.

Thanks,

Alan

Hi Alan,

I am also researching Baldocks in the Rotherfield / Mayfield area and have got back as far as Robert Baldock (1771-1840) and Susannah Brooker (1782-1840) both of whom died in Town Row, Rotherfield. I think Robert's parents were a Robert Baldock and Sarah Carrick, but whilst the Carricks are fairly well recorded, Robert has proved a brick wall.

Totally seperately I have also found the Wadhurst Baldocks marrying into a seperate line - a Sarah Baldock (b1815) of Wadhurst married a William Raynes of Horsmonden in Kent. Sarah's parents were a Daniel Baldock of Wadhurst (1783-1860) and an Elizabeth.

I have not been able to trace Daniel any further back, and as the Wadhurst Baldocks are a fairly distant twig of my main tree, my main interest was in seeing if I could join them up with my Rotherfield Baldocks - which I haven't remotely been able to as yet!

Thanks Mike,

My earliest Baldock, Thomas 1705 was one of the Wadhurst family however he married Anne Frie from Mayfield and they settled in Rotherfield having 7 children one of which was a Robert born 1734.

My line continues with their son William who also married a Mayfield woman, Agnes Holmes and settled there having 4 children. They were living at Huggetts Furnace Farm at one point.

Their son William married Ann Noakes and they settled in Rye where most future generations lived.

Hmmm, that's very interesting - your Robert could certainly be a candidate for my Robert - Sarah Carrick was born in 1737, making a birthdate of 1734 for her Husband Robert Baldock very plausible.

Would you mind sharing your data for Thomas and Ann Frie, as I haven't anything on these people at all.

Interestingly, my great-great-grandfather Alfred Baldock married an Ann Fry in Rotherfield in 1881 - her line goes back through Mayfield for at least two more generations too. Never checked the Frie spelling variant though - would make a lovely tangle if those families connected too!

Hi both

I have a tribe of Baldocks from Wadhurst, too numerous to mention. However I checked my tree and don't seem to have any names you mention at present. I have got back as far as Thomas Baldock 1732 -1788 who married Sarah Mabb. I only have one son noted for them for my line and that is John 1762 - 1834 who married Lydia Sales. After that of course there is an explosion of Baldocks ;D

Any others that you are interested in from Wadhurst?

Hi Evie,

I have seen a tree showing descendants from Thomas and Sarah, but they don't seem to match up with any of my lot so far...

However, there is a document reference in the Medway Archives that you may or may not have been aware of:

Result number 551 - Please quote Reference: S_MN_Medway_Navigation_Company_1627_to_1936/S_MN_FLf_01a on request slip.

Path: Statutory_Authorities_1627_1969/ S_MN_Medway_Navigation_Company_1627_to_1936/ 01_kcc_Accession_0085_1627_to_1912/ S_MN_02_F_Finance_1627_to_1912/ S_MN_12_FLf_Freight_Account_Ledgers_1759_to_1906/ S_MN_FLf_01a.html

Medway Navigation Company

Thank you Mike :)

That is very interesting, no I wasn't aware of that document. I will have to look into it. I must admit I haven't done much on the earlier Baldocks. Thanks once again.

Just realised I have another 'Floating Mary' Baldock - a Mary Baldock married a John Cooper in Dallington 1718, who shortly afterwards died, so she next married a Nicholas Carrick - father of the Sarah Carrick who married my Robert Baldock in Dallington n 1768.

A tree becomes a web becomes a scribble!
