John Crees
« on: Sunday 28 April 13 19:05 BST (UK) »
I am having difficulty tracing my 3 x great grandfather, John Crees, born around 1784 (husband of Sidwell Doidge).  Does anyone have any information that might help?  Can anyone tell me if Morrice Street Weslian Chapel (Devonport) is still open and how can I contact anyone there about church records?[/font][/size][/size]

Hi
Welcome to Rootschat.
Do you have a tree on Ancestry? If not, it might be worth having a look at the one that is there. Be careful though, you need to check the information for yourself.

I've found him on the 1841 census with his wife and daughter Susannah born 1834.  The family are living in Church Street, Stoke Damerel.

His occupation is given as sawyer.  Birthplace Devon.

There is a website called www.bmdregisters.co.uk which has records of non-conformist and non-parochial BMDs.

You may like to have a look at it.  You can search for free but if you wish to see the records you will  need to register and then buy credits.
