Re. John Barber Field = Sophia Crockford. Before subscribing to this FH site I was glad to find the above information by accident (starting from Google ! ). I was glad to dutifully thank 'jojo21again' per-to-per for her input, and now with help from friends I have found John's baptism and his parents marriage. i.e. bap. 19 April 1778 (Easter Sunday); parents' Thomas Field = Mary Barber, their marriage 21 Jan 1771 at Woodkirk, Ardsley Yorkshire.

Amendments by date.
29 July 2014 My family "Field" thread traced 1525-to-1883 www.g4fas.net/JohnField.html . This is mainly about Woodkirk/Ardsley, West-Yorkshire and includes the award of a coat of arms (1558, Queen Mary) which was made obsolete c.1660.
06 Sept 2014 Regarding the JohnField.html page mentioned above I have now burnt my boats and happy to claim something really far fetched, namely that to the best of my knowledge I am a descendant of the astrologer of Princess Elizabeth Tudor who became Elizabeth the 1st. John Field was that astrologer, and his colleague John Dee was astrologer of Queen Mary. As may be seen, I began this quest in Jun 2008. Now looking forward to comments, cynical or otherwise :)

You may have this bapitism or not.Though it dosnt answer the double barrelling name.

Field Louisa 28 Nov 1809 St. Andrews Canterbury "John Barber" "Sophia Field"
Many thanks Julie, I hadn't seen the Louisa bap. The Barber mystery more recently extends to her 1905-sister-Sophia's husband, probably a cousin, named James Barber.

Hello every one-----------glad to be back after running along with very good supporters in search of the John Barber Field I mentioned earlier. He was from Ardsley, W.Yorks and so in the meantime I have discovered a potential dynasty of ancestors there---including a terrace of family graves at Woodkirk.
In the mid-1500s Rev. John Field minister and astronomer of East Ardsley was arrested for "conjuring" the King and Queen, whatever that was :). Probably because he was regarded as a heretic for publishing an almanac based on the new fangled Sun centred motion of the planets.
So would anyone like to discuss this.

FIELD Family again
I have found an ancestor's gravestone at St. Mary's, Woodkirk, W. Yorks.
The inscription is "Here lieth the body of Joshua Field who departed this life 31st day of May 1755 aged 74". That gives his birth year c.1681. There is nothing to be seen at Ancestry.co.uk & FamilySearch.org . I have placed him in my Tree at GenesReunited but have had no feedback. The Borthwick Institute at York have told me that Bishops' Transcripts are missing for 1679-80-81 (how about that for bad luck). See also this webpage of mine for more http://www.g4fas.net/SirJohnField.html. Please help me knock down this wall.
