Family of James Dennis of Wicken
« on: Sunday 15 May 16 08:40 BST (UK) »
Hi, I believe that James was a Congregationalist (dissenter) and that he married Hannah (possibly Pechey).
 I have no dates for either of the above, but have come across a record for a James Dennis, born 29 Sep 1784, son of Thomas and Lydia.
I know that James had a daughter Lydia born 19 Sep 1819 and that she married Charles Cockrill 6 Nov 1849 at Wicken. I believe she had 2 brothers named Thomas and James but I have no further details.
Any help with the Dennis family including occupations if that's possible or if it matches, the Pechey family also. I have seen a thread from 2005, DENNIS family - WICKEN but that covers the family further back than I have been able to trace. Thanks in anticipation.
