Hi anyone able to give me some pointers in researching my Baskeville family tree. This is the first branch of my tree that I have managed to get back to someone into the 18th century so no longer have the luxury of census records.

I have managed to get back to Thomas Baskerville (ABT 1796) from sandbach according to his 1961 census who would be my 5th great grandfather.

The 1961 census is as follows.

Name: Thomas Baskerville
Age: 67
Estimated Birth Year: 1794
Relation: Father:
Birth Place: Sandbach, Cheshire

Name: George Baskerville
Age: 28
Estimated Birth Year: 1833
Relation: Head
Birth Place: Sandbach, Cheshire

Name: Alice Baskerville
Age: 28
Estimated Birth Year: 1833
Relation: Wife
Birth Place: Widnes, Lancashire

Name: Maria Baskerville
Age: 6
Estimated Birth Year: 1855
Relation: Daughter
Birth Place: Widnes, Lancashire

Name: Benjamin Baskerbille
Age: 2
Estimated Birth Year: 1859
Relation: Son
Birth Place: Widnes, Lancashire


I think I have found the 1951 census for thomas in a place called Betchton which is in sandbach according to google maps.

Name: Thomas Baskerville
Age: 55
Estimated Birth Year: 1796
Relation: Head
Birth Place: Betchton, Cheshire, England

Name: John Baskerville
Age: 21
Estimated Birth Year: 1830
Relation: Son
Birth Place: Betchton, Cheshire, England

Name: Elizabeth Baskerville
Age: 19
Estimated Birth Year: 1832
Relation: Daughter In Law
Birth Place: Burslem, Staffordshire, England

Name: George Baskerville
Age: 1 Mo
Estimated Birth Year: 1851
Relation: Grandson
Birth Place: Betchton, Cheshire, England

I cannot find him on the 1941 census.

The problem I have is that I am unsure who Thomas's wife, mother and father are. On Ancestry their are a couple of trees that have names for his parents but no references to back it up so don't want to take it on face value at this stage. I have messaged these users but no response as yet and they do not look like they have logged in for a while.

Thomas is the father of George Baskerville 1832 who would be my 4th great grandfather.

One of the trees has Thomas married to a Sarah Austin and father as Benjamin Baskerville 1740.

The public tree's I have been looking at are as follows for those of you who have access to ancestry;

Thanks

To clarify the typos above its "Baskerville" :)

Is the earliest I can search for a marriage in england/wales 1837? Ancestry has a function called onetree which suggests Thomas married a Sarah Austin on June 3 1816 in Sandbach?

Alison,

Thankyou for your assistance, It would appear that familysearch.org yields more information for older ancestors than ancestry does.

Many Thanks
