Tracing family members
« on: Friday 08 February 19 16:07 GMT (UK) »
Hi there

I have been tracing my family members but have hit a brick wall so any help is much needed thanks .

I have found a Thomas Fookes who married a Mary Trite on 15th Feb 1779 in Kimmeridge Dorset & I have got stuck finding both there mums & dads. I have found all there children they was all born in a place called Church Knowle in Dorset. But I just cant seem to find a birth for Thomas Fookes & Mary Trite.

Once again thanks for any help  :)

There is a baptism for a Thomas Fook on 5 January 1756 at Church-Knowle, Dorset.  Parents are Robert and Mary.

A possibility perhaps?
