Hi

Should have said "Biddiscombe" is correct

Glad you added that, John, was just about to post a pic of part of the actual census image which clearly shows it!
FreeCen volunteers are doing a great job

Thank you all so much, very useful information. Guess I need to brush up my old handwriting techniques a little. Glad you thought it was Mason too. Not sure what a journey man Mason was but can figure it out. All my Biddiscombes were Masons and this was a little bit of a tenous link, so a little less now. Wanted it to read mason, and then convinced myself it wasn't. Thanks heaps once again

Hi Sarah,

Journeyman:  A tradesman who has served his trade apprenticeship and mastered his craft, not bound to serve a master, but originally hired by the day. The name derives from the French for day - jour.

Marriages - all at East Knoyle.  Hindon was not licensed to conduct marriages until April 1847 so East Knoyle was the parish church for marriages for HIndon dwellers.

2 Jan 1797    William BIDDISCOMBE m Sarah NISBETT  (Wm of Hindon, transcribed from Phillimore's)
May 1832      JOhn BIDDISCOMBE m Eliza SNOOK,  (both of Hindon)
27 Apr 1812  William BIDDICOMB m Mary YETMAN   (both of Hindon, transcribed from Phillimore's)
4 Feb 1819    Henry BIDDISCOMB m Elizabeth WHELLER  (both of Hindon)

Cannot see any possibles for 1837 - 1908

You may already have this  :)

I don't have access to any births or deaths - hope this helps!

Judith,
Thank you, I had got those, but from a different source so always good to get these things confirmed again.
Thank you for your trouble, much appreciated
