John Blackow/Blacow/Blacoe/Blakey born near Garstang born c1793
« on: Sunday 19 October 14 15:17 BST (UK) »
Good afternoon all

I am needing some help regarding my husbands 3rd great grandfather John Blacow born near Garstang c1793.

He moved to live in Halifax in 1841 and I have followed his family from there onwards and have all his children (I think!)

He married Mary Wharton (born Lower Wiresdale, Nr Garstang) on 19 June 1813 at Garstang

His son Thomas I know was born in Ellel c1831
His daughter Margaret (our main line link) was born 30th March 1821 at Nateby Hall, Garstang, Lancashire

There are several other children all down as born Garstang

I am wanting to find John's father and mother - I have found Richard Blackow (b1765) and his wife Margaret (b1770) who had a John but I cannot prove this is the correct John,

Up to now all the family have been Catholics

Hoping someone else is maybe researching this same line - I am really hoping I can link this to Henry Blacow (born 1 December 1729) line in Broughton as then I can go back several generations

Looking forward to anyone that can help

many thanks

It could also be the John who was born Ellel around the same time.  :-\

I assume you have a birth certificate to back up Johns wife as Mary Wharton - I know there was another John who married Mary Sturzacker around the same time in Garstang

I am positive it is not Mary Sturzacker as i have gone down that path and realised I was on the wrong John

Thank you for your interest

What a wonderful frustrating hobby this is

Hi just hoping GrannyGreen that you are still doing family history. John Blacoe is also my 3Xgt grandfather. I am related through his 2nd son John. I still live in Halifax. I am just getting back into research after a couple of years off and afraid I don't have much more than you and as your post is a few years old you may well have made good progress in the meantime. I am starting to find more people with our Blacoe/Blakey's in their trees so hopefully progess can be made.

Hello, Garth. Welcome to RootsChat.
Grannygreen last posted 2 years ago. That post was also in connection with the Blacoe family of Garstang.
Click on grannygreen's profile. You can read her other posts. You may find relevant information among them.
Providing granygreen hasn't changed her email address she should receive an alert that there has been a reply to this thread.
When you have made a few more posts you can use the private message option if you wish.
Have you added Blacoe to Surname Interest and searched for other Blacoe listings there? Click on "Surname Interests" in brown section at foot of this page.
I have a distant connection with a Blacoe/Blacow family who were in Kirkham parish 18th-19th centuries.

Thanks for the tips. I have been looking through Blakey/Blacoe etc posts, as time permits.
I have to check my surname interests as its awhile since I joined and used Rootschat.
My Blacoes were from Garstang area but if I remember correctly from a few years back the parishes around there are fairly small in area and distance, so we maybe related. The family moved to Halifax in the 1830's and all but 1 son changed there name to Blakey by 1851. One of my early "brick walls" when working back was no Blakeys in 1841 census for Halifax and 6 hours at Preston PRO dint find any either. THEN in the last 15 minutes I was browsing the Catholic registers transcription books (published c1930's) I noticed lots of Blaco(w)e's right dates right forenames. Check 1841 census the following day and they were all there under their original surname. So maybe we are related way back.

Thanks again,

Richard Blakey
