SEYMOUR/SEYMORE Canal Boat family
« on: Wednesday 11 September 13 17:12 BST (UK) »
Hi
Trying to find if there are links between the Seymour/Seymore canal boat families plying their trade on the canals in the early 19th century.
From Wolverhampton I have Richard Seymour b c 1803 - this is my direct line.
From Worcester, Jacob Seymour and his children.  IGI has Jacob born in Redditch in 1801, son of John and Mary Seymour.  There do not appear to be any other Seymour baptisms in Redditch.
From Oxford I have John Seymour b c 1837.
If anyone could find a birth record for John Seymour of Oxford, I would be very grateful.  I believe he may also have had a brother called Richard, but cannot at present confirm this.
I have also found a burial in Worcester, date 1839 for a Mary Seymour and wonder if anyone has access to the parish records there and could tell me Mary's age at death - could she have been Jacob's mother?
Any help - or, for that matter, anyone with links to the Seymours - appreciated.


Canal families on my tree:
Hinman/Inman, Seymour/Seymore, Compton/Crompton, Musson, Fradley, Wood, Harrison, Salt, Statham, Lunt, Clegg, Wood, Turton, Swift, Willington, Northwood, Webberley
