Bostock of Cascob Radnorshire
« on: Tuesday 06 July 10 21:06 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to find any information about the parents of my 3xGt Grandfather John Bostock born in Cascob, Radnorshire, Wales circa 1818.
On the FamilySearch website (IGI) it shows he was baptised in Cascob on 03/01/1819 and states his mothers name as Elizabeth Bostock.
On his marriage cert to Jane Morris in Kington, Hereford on 01/05/1848 it shows his father as ? Eckley(surname) ???
In 1841 John was living at Maestieloe Grove, Presteigne, Discoyd, Radnorshire as a Farm Labourer.
Between 1841 and 1848 he moved to Kington, Herefordshire where he lived with his wife and children until his death in 1891.
I cannot find anything about his mother Elizabeth Bostock and even less about his father ? Eckley as it looks like he was born out of wedlock.    :-[
Any information would be gratefully appreciated

Hi Shirl

Thankyou for that information, which I had not seen before. It looks like my 4xGt Grandma Elizabeth was a bit of a girl (if she is one and the same).
Not quite sure where to go now with this search as I appear to have hit a brick wall.
Thanks again
John
