Parents of Henry Hendry
« on: Sunday 24 January 16 12:33 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help me please with the parents of Henry Hendry? He was born in New Houghton, Norfolk, in approximately 1826.  He then became a shepherd and married Martha Alflatt in 1858. Any help much appreciated!

Hi

Welcome to rootschat  :)

The GRO index for the marriage gives his name as Henry Thomas Hendry.  The certificate should give details of his father

Marriage Sep qtr 1858   
Alflatt    Martha       
Hendry    Henry Thomas       
Downham    4b   615

I think you are right about getting the marriage certificate to see what it says about the father as I found several baptisms in both New Houghton and Watton
James Stott c1775-1850. James was born in Yorkshire but where? He was a stonemason and married Elizabeth Archer (nee Nicholson) in 1794 at Ripon. They lived thereafter in Masham. If anyone has any suggestions or leads as to his birthplace I would be interested to know. I have searched for it for years without success. Thank you.

Many thanks for all your help.  I have applied for the marriage certificate which should provide at least his fathers name.

The first born child was Charlotte Elizabeth Hendry (11 Dec 1858 - baptism 17 July 1859 - Wimbotsham Parish, Norfolk - father Henry Thomas Hendry and Mother Martha Allflatt (as transcribed Norfolk Bishops Transcripts)  - perhaps that's a clue that these are the correct parents - names after her grandmother  ???
