Looking for any information on Robert Stock who married Lydia Arms at St John's Church, May 9, 1815 in Bedford. I am aware of four children and have some data on them, but nothing on Robert and Lydia.

Welcome To RootsChat

Any further information would be useful.  When were Robert and Lydia born ? When did they immigrate to Canada ? Where did they live in Canada ?

I do not know when they were born or died. They did not come to Canada but their son William and his family did move to Lincoln and lived on Spital Street. William's son James Alfred Stock came to Winnipeg, Canada in May of 1887.

Perhaps ask a moderator to move the thread to Bedford, Bedfordshire England.  This is the Canada board.

Its always best to give as much information as you can so the RootsChatters don't waste there time duplicating what you already have.  I put that small piece together as back ground info and hopefully someone can come up with further information for you - probably needs to come from parish records. The Bedfordshire board was a better option for trying to get that info. Fingers crossed.

Regards
Sandra  ;)

Another thought - You could list "Stock" in the surnames Interest Table on RootsChat ?

Scroll down to the bottom of any RootsChat) page.

In the dark box, under "Your Tools" you will see "Surname Interests".

Click on that -  then "Quick Search"  - then select the initial letter ( " S " ).
Scroll down to find " S " click on that and a list of " S " researchers will pop up.
You should be able to add your own as well.

Sandra
