John Harrison and wife Grace were baptising children in Sheen, Staffordshire in the 1600s. The earliest I can find so far is Abraham in 1663.

I'm trying to find a marriage for them, anywhere, not just in Sheen, but there's nothing coming up for me. Can anyone find anything. John would appear to have been born 1633 in Sheen, son of Edmund. I can't find Edmund's marriage either.

Yes, I saw that one too. However I can find a John Harrison baptising children at St John Ousebridge in the right time frame and one of them is a daughter called Grace. Therefore I think that marriage can be discounted.

Thanks anyway,

I think you may have cracked it, Amanda. I cannot find any baptisms for children of John and Grace in Hartington, and none elsewhere in Derbyshire. No burials for them either. Also, and much more of a clincher is the fact that, according to Genuki, Hartington is 1 mile from Sheen, just over the county border.

May thanks.
