    Mary Anne Britton nee Maillard circa 1792-1857

    It looks like my last reply went astray – or maybe I’m tired – it’s late evening here in Australia – for me anyway! So here goes again – I think the FS record showing Mary Anne Maillard born in 1761 is wrong – I always thought she was born in either 1788 or 1792. Your record re her christening...

    Mary Anne Britton nee Maillard circa 1792-1857

    I think the FS record showing Mary Anne born 1761 is wrong. I was fairly certain that her birth year was 1788 or 1792 but I now think it is most likely to be 1788 – your record showing her baptism probably confirms this – thank you very much. And I like the marriage record for William &...

    Mary Anne Britton nee Maillard circa 1792-1857

    Thank you Ellie7 for your prompt responses. Much appreciated. I had seen the “Visitations of England and Wales” document – in fact – I found another site for “Visitations etc” but have forgotten the web address – it actually displayed photos of both Daniel and Mary Anne – fortunately I did...

    Mary Anne Britton nee Maillard circa 1792-1857

    I am researching the Maillard family. I have come to a brick wall in England with Mary Anne Maillard born circa 1792 in Ashley Hill, Bristol and married to Daniel Britton born 1784 in Caer Britto, Ashley Hill, Bristol – marriage date 12 Oct 1811. Mary Anne died in 1857 and she was the daughter...

    Yorkshire Holmes

    In a search on Scotlandspeople, I found a marriage record in the Old Parish registers titled “Homes James Jean McMinn/FR185) 28/04/1814 879/ 10-176 Rerrick”. I think Rerrick is the name of a church in Dundrennan, Kirkcudbright. I purchased the record which states: “Homes – James Homes and Jean...

    Yorkshire Holmes

    Thanks for that Dave - I have a copy of the 1841 census extract and I have temporarily placed these Holmes in my tree - I have done so because I am convinced that there is a connection between them and my Joseph Holmes (1811) Anwoth and his father Thomas. But still haven't made the connection. JC

    Hi Barbara – I replied to your private message but obviously that didn’t work – you have asked me to click on the wee blue box – what wee blue box? I am elderly and sometimes struggle but I am also a 50-year IT veteran. I find this site very difficult to navigate – no doubt in time, it will...

    Jane Holms

    Thanks Dave - not sure how to paste an IMG image as I am new to this site and this format. I do have a copy of Jane Holms death cert 1860 on one of my web sites at http://www.jcancestry.com.au/holmes/ - will this suffice? Cheers JC

    Jane Holms

    I have a copy of the death certificate for Jane Holms. Still not sure if she is related to my Joseph Holmes (1811) Anwoth but still need to either prove or disprove. I am having real trouble deciphering her parent's names - can anyone assist please? Cheers John Cummings Anglesea, Australia

    Yorkshire Holmes

    Barbara – my mistake – you are quite right that Joseph’s father is Thomas the Forrester. Senior moment yet again. I responded to your private message but didn’t hear from you – was the info you wanted to give me in your last post? So I have Joseph’s father as Thomas – no birth date or place –...

    Yorkshire Holmes

    I currently have Jane HOLMS (1786-1860) – MNU – married to James HOLMS (1786-1859) as the likely parents of Joseph (1811-1887). I have bought Jane’s death record from Scotlandspeople and it states that she is the widow of “ships carpenter” – Joseph was a ships carpenter – died 1860 in Anwoth...

    Barbara – many thanks for your assistance. I bought the death record for Joseph died 1887 in Irongray. Joseph Holmes – Forrester – widower of Ann McMinnies – died 23 Aug 1887 at Peartree – age 82 – probably should be 72 as he was born in 1811 – father listed as Thomas Holmes – Forrester –...

    Yorkshire Holmes

    Thanks for your assistance. Ann McMINNIES’ parents were John McMINNIES (1775-1855) and Janet THOMSON. John McMINNIES’ parents were James McMUNNIES (1750) and Janet Isabel McWHELAN. Would be interested, if possible, to have further info on the grave in Troqueer. I did try and find a marriage...

    Yorkshire Holmes

    Hi - Thanks for letting me join this group. I am researching the family history for a Melbourne (Australia) lady called Anne – her father was a JEFFERY and her mother was a HOLMES. Her Jefferys are from Sussex and I have the JEFFERY pedigree back to William JEFFERY born 1685. But the HOLMES...
