Richard Seamark circa 1725-1735
« on: Sunday 22 November 20 07:05 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to trace a record for his baptism.
It is thought they he MAY have been born it the Stepney Area in Middlesex (now in London) or the Westminster Area Middlesex (Also now in London), but this is uncertain!
He married Sarah Storer 16 Oct 1755 @ Saint James, Westminster.
As far as I can tell they had only two children.
Sarah Seamark Born 1 Nov 1757 and baptised 13 Nov 1757 @ Saint James, Westminster.
Lydia Seamark Born 27 July 1760 and baptised 10 Aug 1760 @ Saint James, Westminster.
Any assistance will be appreciated.

I've found one baptism for a Richard Seamark:-

Birth date -10th March 1727/28
Baptised - 17th March 1727/28
Church - St. Etheldreda, Guilsborough, Northamptonshire
Parents - Richard and Prudence

If this is your Richard he certainly travelled some distance for his marriage.

I used to live in Northamptonshire and remember there were Seamarks in the same place.

The child Lydia died in 1762 and was buried at St James Westminster.

I can only see the transcribed version of the marriage which seems strange as the births, marriages and burials at St James are supposedly on Ancestry. Have you got the actual marriage entry from the parish register? Sometimes the actual entry is more informative than a transcript.

Found the actual marriage entry and no more information given beyond the fact they both signed their names.

Do you know Richardís occupation?

Thereís a Jane Seamark marrying at the same church as Richard in 1760 and also aSarah Seamark in 1762. I wonder if they are siblings - all marrying in the same church?

Hello Girl Guide and Gibel
Girl Guide
Their daughter Sarah Seamark married my 4 x great-grandfather Thomas Fitzgerald, one son was named John Storer Fitzgerald and a daughter named Sarah Seamark Fitzgerald they were all also baptised @ Saint James, Westminster.

Gibel
I have seen these baptisms, but to the best of my knowledge I am not aware of any links to Northamptonshire, needless to say it is not impossible!
I am aware of Lydia death in 1762, and I do not know what his occupation was.
I do have a Jane Seamark on my ever increasing to do list. I will research her details as soon as I can.
Thank you both or your replies.
