If I have got the correct children for Richard and Ann, they were in order of birth,

Richard, Anne, Thomas & Elizabeth. If the couple followed the normal naming

pattern but not all did, I would take a look at the Richard Hill baptised Ledbury

1 Feb 1784, parents Richard & Elizabeth, but there are several others. For Ann there

are two, maybe three possible births in the county parents Thomas & Anne.

Sadly they are both common names but you may be able to find a link.

Colin
Clarke, Trickett, Orton, Lawless, Norton, Detheridge, Kirby, Goodfellow, Wagstaff, Lowe, etc.

Much closer to Brampton abbotts is the Richard christened to Richard  and Elizabeth in Ross 1687, but there are many possibilities, also we are very close to the border with Gloucestershire.

Thanks Mike & ColC

Whereís the best source of info to continue this research?
Am I right that all the records are parish held prior to the 1870s

Sorry for newbie questions, Iím based in Australia and donít have access to physical UK archives

Civil registration of births, marriages and deaths began in England in sept. 1837, although registration of births was not compulsory till the 1870s

The first census was in 1841, and then every ten years after that, again a bit later than you are looking at, so before 1837 parish records are a primary source, but information can be brief, and may just say Richard, son of richard hill was baptised, other clerics my be a bit more informative.

Transcripts are available online, some from the actual parish records, others are from the bishops transcripts, (the quarterly returns supposed to have been made by each parish), the is sometimes more info available from the images of the parish records, but for Herefordshire very few images are available,

I have had a look at the index of Herefordshire wills available at Hereford archives website, there are some Hill wills but none that stand out.

I wish I could be more positive  :) :)

Others on rootschat are much more knowledgeable than me, so donít give up :)
