Burch of Plymouth and Monkton Sth Wales
« on: Thursday 04 October 12 07:49 BST (UK) »
I am in the process of voluntarily cataloguing, recording and researching the families of the few remaining headstones and internal memorials placed around the walls and inside of Monkton Parish Church Pembrokeshire Wales .

I have one headstone in excellent condition which reads ;

To the Memory of / ELEANOR BURCH / Daughter of Thomas & Ann Burch of Plymouth who departed this life April 3rd 1819 aged 4 yrs.

From my complete transcription of the Monkton and adjacent town of Pembroke Parish Registers for Bapt/Mrge/Burial from 1711 to the 1930s there is no mention of the surname Burch. Nor does the surname get a mention in L.T.A.s (see http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/PEM/Pemtax1.html)

Does anyone have any Family Tree from the Plymouth area which might include the baptism of Eleanor and if possible the mrge of Thomas and Ann. Although no mention is made it is lightly that Thomas is either R.N. or a mariner.

I seek no other later information on the Burch surname in Pembrokeshire.

Tks in advance

Eleanor's baptism looks good and fits, given the 1st Thomas the Caulker baptism is probably 1815 one would go with 1814 to An Page as the mrge.
Its lightly that Thomas was not too impressed with the new town of Pembroke Dock began in 1812 lived across the esturary in Monkton (like so many others).
Perhaps Thomas or Ann's mother was an Eleanor ??

Many thanks for your assistance in this matter it has been of great help to me.
