John Linsdell - Linton - COMPLETED
« on: Monday 12 April 10 02:59 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find more about John LINSDELL born abt 1771 in Linton and his wife Elizabeth HELSDEN (or HELLSDEN) born abt 1773 in Haverhill Suffolk (according to censuses).

They married on 2 Jan 1798 in Linton and had (at least) 4 children, all born in Linton - Sarah (b. 21 May 1798), Rebeccah (b. 24 Oct 1799), Anne (b. 21 Dec 1801) and John (b. 14 Jun 1804 - my gg grandfather).

I have found 2 possible baptisms for John in Linton (5 Nov 1775 and 13 Apr 1777). Of course, neither of these might be right one!

Could anyone help with any parent information on the marriage record which would lead to his correct baptism record?

I would be grateful for any information on John and/or Elizabeth.

Anne

Welcome to Rootschat. Witnesses to the marriage were William Arnold and Jas Woodward-probably not much help, but it didn't give any parent info.
John was buried 13/4/1862 aged 90 years in Linton. St Mary's church.
regards.

Fathers only were named in marriages from 1837 onwards. Before that you just get the witnesses names

Hi Anne,
John and Elizabeth were my 4x gt grandparents. I am descended through their son William.
John and Elizabeth had the following children
Sarah Linsdell bn 21 May 1798 bap 10 Jun 1798
Rebecca bn 24 Oct 1799 bap 25 Dec 1799
Anne bn 21 Dec 1801 bap 19 Apr 1802
John, bn 14 Jun 1804 bap 24 Jul 1804
Elizabeth, bn 2 Jun 1806 bap 17 Aug 1806
James bn 19 Jun 1808 bap 7 Aug 1808
William bn 19 Aug 1810 bap 7 Oct 1810
Phoebe bn 26 Oct 1812 bap 29 Nov 1812
Mary bn 10 May 1817 bap 17 Aug 1817 bur 3 Jun 1821

I think Elizabeth's surname is possibly Elsden but she has been rather elusive!
John was baptised 5 Nov 1775 son of Maurice Linsdell and Mary Pamment, married 14 Sep 1769 in Linton.

Tempsford :)
