Beccles parish - FLINT
« on: Saturday 15 April 17 20:44 BST (UK) »
Hi

I am seeking the baptism of Mary FLINT believed to have been born/baptised in Beccles between 1804/7. I have no knowledge of her parents. I do know she married Jonathan GOLDSPINK in 1823.

Any help - greatly appreciated

Regards

Jim

Has her birthplace/birthyear been confirmed via any census entry?

There are 31 different trees on Ancestry - none of which show her as b Beccles - one shows her as b Holton 1807.  Beccles seems to have come from where she was living in 1841

One has her death before 1832 whilst others show her date of death as 4.12.1876 Ipswich having remarried to an Adam Beales.  No death in 1876 under either surname

The same tree is very inaccurate.  It shows Johnathon Goldspink b 1807 died 1876 suspect that should be 1832

It shows Mary married Adam Beales in 1833 Norfolk and he died 1856 - confirmed on freebmd

I think somebody has their wires crossed.   I think we have 2 Mary Beales here and there is some confusion about their birthplaces/deaths

1851 - Mary Beales b 1807 Holton is with husband Adam.  Visitor is Maria Goldspink aged 26 so I am happy this is the right Mary

However - also in 1851 - Mary Beales widow b 1807 Beccles is with her sister

1861 - no Mary b Holton but Mary b 1809 Beccles has niece & nephew John & Mary Underwood visiting her

1871 - Mary b 1805 Beccles
