    WALKER family East London

    Brilliant, Thank you sooooooo Much!!!! I was not certain as there were so many Walkers and I just kept going round in circles, I had one for an Edward Thomas Walker who married a Frances Harriet Knight, but the area seemed wrong to me, based on my (sadly short) line of Walkers so far, all...

    WALKER family East London

    Marriage Certifcate of 1820 HERSTMONCEAUX, SUSSEX

    A second cousin of mine has been researching the family tree and she gave me the information, she got it directly from the Parish archives, I just wanted some reference to it... and I have it !!! Edward Clark is listed as Edward Fox on a Christening record on IGI (19th June 1796)...

    Marriage Certifcate of 1820 HERSTMONCEAUX, SUSSEX

    Thank you for these links, will try them :) It would be a help to have something, The marriage shows on IGI and Ancestry, but no image, information is very slight, has the names of brides Father, nothing for Groom. The Grooms Father's name may not be on there, but I will give it a go :) All Best

    Marriage Certifcate of 1820 HERSTMONCEAUX, SUSSEX

    Hi, is it possible to order a marriage certificate from 1820 ? To Edward Clark and Anne Burchett I have looked online but they seem to only be available from 1837. I have also looked at the parish records online but am unable to find anything. I believe the Father may be listed on there. (At...

    Ballantyne

    Thank you Barbara, I thought it might be a difficult task tracing back so far,my distant relation did say she was unable to concrete it, and she has done a fabulous job on all her collating, I may have been jumping the hurdles here too fast. The will was there, but the facts weren't adding up...

    Ballantyne

    Thank you Barabra, I have been very off track, I want to solve the mystery, if I am able to, not just put any old thing down, I would rather leave a name blank than put the wrong information in. It is quite hard with such limited information to work with, I will carry on using the IGI as you...

    Ballantyne

    Oh gawd, I'm really off track... a distant relation was sure it was John, she has done years of research, also she thought they might come from Paisley area, but it wasn't concrete, I've been looking and looking and I can't find anything. All I know is Peter hailed from Scotland, Agnes was his...

    Ballantyne

    Well I never did! Doh!!! There it was, I have been going round in circles for hours today, I tried earlier but sfor some reason I just couldn't work it out (IGI). I think I understand now :) Thank you At least I think I am on the right track, looking at the dates of the census in Scotland and...

    Ballantyne

    Re: Mary CATT in Sussex

    Re: Mary CATT in Sussex Hi David, good news, the Ore Catt's are definitely our relations via Charlotte Catt. Mum recalls visiting an Aunt Amelia and Uncle Will, they lived together in a cottage in Guestling, nr Hastings. She also recalls an Aunt Alice on the Clarke side, so it has all...

    Re: Mary CATT in Sussex

    Re: Mary CATT in Sussex Hi Dave, I don't think Catt is a particularly common name, although I have looked and seen otherwise, I still think there could be a possible connection, via a relation of mine. My Mum sometimes gets things slightly out of kilt, due to the turbulence of the War years (...

    Re: Mary CATT in Sussex

    Re: Mary CATT in Sussex Hi Dave, Wow!! They certainly did for those days, real travellers :) Agnes could well be Scottish apparently, that mixes it up a bit more :) Perhaps the other girls did not survive, this could well explain not finding them, they were very harsh times after all. I'm...

    Re: Mary CATT in Sussex

    Re: Mary CATT in Sussex Hi Dave, have been looking at various links tonight (am hopeless at maths, which is why my dates are all wrong) :) Ore is within the vicinity I am looking at, so yes could well be her. Looking at my grandfather William James Clarke (thought with the male line it is...
