Smith family in Scarcliffe, Belper and Heage
« on: Monday 12 October 20 14:48 BST (UK) »
I am looking for any information about a George Smith who married Ann, surname unknown

They had 2 sons baptised in Scarcliffe, Matthew 17 January 1786 and Joseph 10 January 1790.

Joseph married Elizabeth Litchfield in Belper 24 September 1817.
 
When Joseph and Elizabeth's first son George was baptised in Heage on September 8th 1822, there was also an Elizabeth Smith aged 29 a daughter of George Smith (deceased) baptised on the same day.

Hoping someone may be able to help me to find details of George Smith senior and his wife.

Thank you for reading this.

The only child born there parents George & Ann below.

Hi

Details from the 1783 marriage licence per FindMyPast

George Smith the younger of Heage, bachelor aged 21 years and upwards.  A Farmer
Anne Spencer. Of Parish of Duffield, spinster aged 21 years and upwards

One of the bondsmen was William Spencer  of Belper, Nailer.    This could be her Father.

To ColC and Spendlove

Thank you both so much for your response.  I had looked at the George Smith and Ann Spencer marriage in the past but wasn't sure if I could be sure that it was the correct one so thought it was worth asking if anyone could find any alternatives.

I have copies of the wills of George Smith 1722 -1813 and George Smith the younger 1755 -1822 and think that they may be the Georges that I am looking for. 

I have found a baptism for an Ann Spencer 6 June 1756 and she has a brother William baptised 9 August 1761.  Both children of John Spencer and Elizabeth /Elza.

I think that I will have to accept the findings with a query mark next to them!

Now I just have to find a burial of George Smith baptised 1822 in Heage and not found after the 1891 census.

Thanks again for the help. It is very much appreciated.
