Davies Family from Eaton Bishop
« on: Monday 08 June 15 10:48 BST (UK) »
Hi,
As I'm new to posting here I hope I have the right place.  I am researching the Davies family, namely Hezekiah Joseph Davies. He married Anne Baker and had 11 children. One of those children, Caleb Absolom, born about 1880 came to New Zealand and married Edith Ethel Brungar and had a family  before dying in the flu epidemic in 1918. Caleb is/was my husbands Grandfather and I am trying to work out his family tree. We believe Hezekiah was known in the area of Eaton Bishop as Donkey Davies. I have the family sorted from Caleb down but I would like to find out more about his siblings, and if posible go further back from Hezekiah.  I hope this makes sense and any information on this Davies family would be great. It would be also great to find out if there are any descendants still living in the area.
Many thanks in advance.
Researching, Titcombe, Davies, Galloway, Craig, Shailer, Richardson, Lee, Rand, Hazell. All roots mainly from England, Scotland, New Zealand.

Hi
1881 Census  Herefordshire     Eaton Bishop   Area 14   Page 10       
Some of the names difficult to make out, so I've used the transcription:
Hezejiah Davies   34    Eaton Bishop
Anne        32    Preston on Wye, Herefordshire
George Ed  9
Arthur? W   7
Hezekiah    5
Emily L   3
Caleb A   1
Zellah    2 mo.
+ Servant.
Children all born Eaton Bishop
Address Ruckhall Common.

1871 same address, married, no children  - 1 visitor.

1891 same address, 5 children after Zellah.

Hi
Probably Anne's brother. Didn't spot that !

Marriage Hezekiah Joseph Davies to Anne Baker last quarter of 1870, Hereford Registration District. Don't have access to Parish records.

Baker family easily traceable on Ancestry.

Should this topic be transferred to Herefordshire board ?

The marriage was in St. Peter's Hereford,  grooms father was Hesekiah Joseph Davies.

Hi again,  I think in 1851/61 Hezekiah and his father possibly go by their middle name, Joseph, living once again at Ruckhall Common,  Eaton Bishop
Census ref 1861 RG09/1818/163/6 and 1851 HO107/1977/576/1

Fortunately there is a William Baker Christ. 1844 in Preston on Wye otherwise I would wonder why the marriage was in Hereford city.

There is a very local community magazine for that area, if I can find an email for the editor they may include a request for descendants, but it may not be soon
