Nathaniel Jenner (born 1796)

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Hello - I wonder if anyone has any information please on Nathaniel Jenner. My maternal grandfather Henry George Ractliffe's wife was Clara Jenner (b 1859). Her father was Henry Jenner b.1825 and in turn his father was Nathaniel Jenner. They all came from Gloucestershire. Many years ago I was told that our family were distant relatives of Edward Jenner but as yet I can find no direct link with him - perhaps through one of his siblings. Any help/information anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Some dates and marriage info for Edward Jenner

You could try contacting the Jenner Museum in Berkeley to see if they could help.



Sandra Report 30 Jan 2013 15:05

Thank you safc - another source of material for me to check out.
Thanks again too to Maddie.


Sandra Report 30 Jan 2013 15:20

Andy - Tkx - I shall certainly get in touch with the Jenner Museum. There is a great deal of information around about Edward Jenner himself but I'm not having much luck in finding out more about his siblings which is the route I think I must take as I don't think Nathaniel was directly related to Edward Jenner.

'Scribe's Alcove' lists the baptisms of Edward Jenner's siblings.

Christine - I've just had a look at Scribes Alcove - what an interesting website. I'd never have found that. Thank you very much.
