William and Lydia Baker in 1841

Location
Cardigan
From
Wales
Can someone help me please to find William Baker and his wife Lydia Calloway? I don't know their birth dates. They married in Halesowen, Worcestershire in 1799. Their son Joseph was born in 1801 Sedgley, Staffordshire.

Thank you,
Lizzy
 
Did they have any other children? They may have died before 1841. Lydia prob has as I can't find her and there are too many Wm Bakers.

Thank you again Amanda,

You've certainly given me much more to work on. I appreciate all the information you have sent me with this thread and others; thank you for your time.

This may be useful for cross-referencing at some point [occ.]

Spouse: Lydia Wilson
Marriage or Bann Date: 21 Feb 1802
Event Type: Bann
Parish: Nuneaton
[William B OTP and Lydia W of Cottisbrooke, Northamptonshire]

I wonder if there are minor errors, the image has Lydia, widow of William Baker. Abode = Church Street.

Yeah, wasn't sure about those baptisms, but if Mary was their daughter, there is certainly a big gap between siblings, and of course their's seem to be non conformist registers, so I'm not surprised :)

Yep, needs a bit of sorting :rolleyes:

This doesn't help either..

So this couple married in the spouse' parish..

William Baker

Parish as it Appears: Cottesbrook

That's unusual. if her name had been Mary, Sarah or Elizabeth, I wouldn't have been at all surprised, but Lydia is much less common, but not on this occasion :eek:

Would tend to agree, that said there is also a 4th William Baker and Lydia that married around that time, but I wont complicate matters :)

Geoff
 
It looks as though the Nuneaton connection can be eliminated, the only issues are that Lydia says she is BiC and age, though would be rounded down..

1841
Civil Parish: Nuneaton
Hundred: Hemlingford (Atherstone Division)
County: Warwickshire
RD: Nuneaton
Sub-RD: Nuneaton
ED: 17; Piece: 1127; Book: 18; Folio: 7; Page: 7

William Baker 63 [Shoe m]
Lydia Baker 58
John Baker 21 [Shoe m]
[All BiC. Abode = Church Street, matches Lydia's death]

Geoff

EDIT: William d. 1846 and buried at same church as Lydia..
