Mark/Marker Mace in Southwark 1720
« on: Thursday 08 November 18 22:28 GMT (UK) »
Marker Mace married 12 August 1712 to Mary Wingfield in Norwich Norfolk, three children born there 1713-1718, then I found a John Mace son of Marker Mace baptized March 1719/20 St Mary Newington Southwark Surrey.
EDIT corrected typo on bap date.

I cannot find that he and his family returned to Norwich.
He was a barber by trade and the name Marker was his mothers maiden name.

Can anyone find any more details on the family please.

Marker Mace, barber, voted in the polls to elect a parliamentary representative for the City of Norwich in 1714 and 1716.

Have been trying to find a record of his voting after that date (any region) - unsuccessful to date.
S. Wales, Somerset, Devon - Oxenham

Aberavon - Hopkin/s, Jenkins, Thomas
St. Brides/Wick - Jenkins
Llanblethian -  Price
Abergwynfi -  Han(d)ford
Pontardawe -  Lewis.

There's a curious apprenticeship tax record in IR 1/42 dated April 1712 which has the master's name as Jno Vant of Blickling and the apprentice as Marker Mace of Norwich, barber, if I'm reading it right.

It's page 42 of the ledger which is image 93 or thereabouts in the free download from TNA

Thankyou for your searches, it looks like he stayed in Surrey, must have moved there after daughter Mary was born.
