I'd like a look up for the family in 1861 please.



This is a different Isaac (different father) so ruling him out in 1881 living at Hotwell rd, Clifton, Gloucester with spouse Elizabeth and family.

If the couple from post #1 can't be found in 1861 any sign of them in 1871? There is no sign in 1881.

The one in 1852 marriage looks very much like my Mary Ann with age, place and father Aaron all fitting.

Hoped I'd struck lucky Dave but if you're sure of parentage this is just another Isaac to rule out - no mention of his wife, the Day family are next door, the wife being, presumably, Isaac's sister Jane.

Don't know if you want Aaron Peacock in 1861, he's widowed age 53 and listed as a visitor with the family of Thomas Bedlow in Bristol

Sorry it's not much use, I'll keep looking. :)
Hello Woodlander,

Thank you very much for looking.

I have Aaron in 1861 thanks and that's my starting point. There are very few Aaron so I'm reasonably sure his daughter is the one who married Isaac in 1852. I only have that marriage record to tell me Isaac's father was Joseph.

It looks very much as though Mary Ann died before 1861 but there are too many to try pot luck with one certificate.

Looks as though they are cousins not siblings:

Hello Woodlander,

Looks like three Isaac JONES born in Gloucester with parents:

Joseph & ?
William & Mary
John & Ann

That's another Isaac ruled out.
