Until you get some idea of when he was born.......and where.......it will be a futile exercise, I'm afraid.

Who is the IDIOT who is referring perfectly OK posts?

Unless this one is a duplicate, there can be no possible reason for referring it

thanks to those who have replied but think i will look elsewhere.why has it been reviewed?

Flick Report 27 Jun 2011 21:51

Only the perpetrator can answer that question...................

I assume you are confident that you haven't duplicated your request...................which would be the only possible reason for it to be reviewed

....and even if it was a duplicate then it would be nicer if the 'reporter' would ask/advise first, that Fran deletes

Sigh......use some common sense 'thread reporter'

As the marriage was 1718, you will need to be looking at births in the late 1600's, but , even to look at the Records Office, you'd have to have an idea of where.........................
