Ann Belcher - m - John Saunders 1845 Henley Regis Dist.
« on: Friday 17 September 21 23:49 BST (UK) »
I have an Ann Belcher  bapt. 11-8-1821 in Blewbury, Berks (d/o James & Dinah) - and am looking for her marriage please.
Originally I had, what I thought was her,  married to a William Webb  (widower) 1856 in Chipping Norton but have since found some trees on Anc..y  saying she was married to a John Saunders in 1845 in the Henley District.

Is anyone able to come up with a definite place and date please? I have looked at FreeReg, FreeBMD, Ancy, & F/Search all without finding a location.

I have to admit  Ann appears in the  Cuxham, Oxon censuses for 1851-1891 and in each census she is shown as being born in Blewbury which makes a convincing case that I may have got her marriage to W.Webb wrong albeit she is shown as the d/o James Belcher.

I have looked at the original Cuxham registers on Anc..y but sadly they only go up to 1840.


Can anyone help please?

Did your Ann Belcher have a younger brother named Adam? If so, he is a "visitor" (age 13) in the 1851 census at the residence of John & Ann Saunders in Cuxham. In the absence of an online 1845 marriage record, Adam may be the Belcher family link you need.

Hello Hillhurst,

Yes you correct - Adam Belcher was her brother (one of 10 children born to James & Dinah) bapt. in 1837 in Blewbury.
Using the GRO birth regis - I have found 10 "Saunders" births with mmn = Belcher all in the Henley dist. starting in 1846 which again goes to support a marriage in about 1845 but where?

Unfortunately I can't see any baptismal registers for Cuxham on Ancy but did find one in Watlington where Ann was bapt. in 1847 but no more.

Thanks for your help.

Perhaps you need to order the 1845 marriage cert to confirm the location ?? Is that what you want to know - the 1845 marriage location?

I have an ancestor John Nairne (Captain - master mariner) who married one Sarah Belcher on 7th March 1785. If I don't have much on her Belcher Branch but an send it to you if you wish.

Hi,

I do have several Sarah Belchers in my tree but none of an age who would have married in 1785. They were nearly all  born Berks.
