It certainly does Roger, I have a brother and a nephew and a few cousins......I live in the village where my earliest ancestors (9th gt grandparents) are found in a marriage in 1608.

Fortunate indeed, my ancestors seem to have moved around quite a lot, perhaps they were run  out of town  or got out before the law caught up with them!

I have an ancestor Robert Wilcockson who was married at Saint Peters church Nottingham in 1666.  I would be most obliged if you could check if he appears in any of the Notts Hearth tax returns 1664:1674

Hi Bulwell,

I have checked both 1664 and 1674 returns and there are no Wilcocksons (or variants) recorded at all. It doesn't seem to be a Notts name.

So I checked the marriage you mention - I assume you mean Robert Wilcockson who married Grace Phepound. The marriage license states that both Robert and Grace were of Crich in the county of Derbyshire. Knowing that much of the 1670 hearth tax for Derbyshire is available online, I checked Crich parish, and there is a Rob. Wilcockson (1 hearth) recorded there - he might be the man you were searching for. In the 1664 returns there is a Robert Wilcockson who has 2 hearths, living at Crich.

You can see the entries at:
http://www.crichparish.co.uk/webpages/hearthtax1664.html
http://www.crichparish.co.uk/webpages/hearthtax1670.html

Hope this helps.

Alexander

Thanks for the quick response.  I know of the Crich connection and have traced the two Wilcockson families there back to the 1550's.  What I am trying to confirm is where Robert lived after his marriage and before he turned up in Greasley Notts some 20 years later.  Any further suggestions most welcome

Hi again.

When you have a moment would you be able to do a look up for PORTER & BUCK in the Hearth Tax & Protestation Returns?

Much appreciated

Hi Lisa, there are about 20 Bucks and 50 Porters in the hearth tax returns, similar numbers in the prot returns. Is there a particular area or name you are interested in?
