Hi Marcelle,

This is so good of you and I'm going to take a real liberty if you dont mind as I have never seen another thread offering lookups for Bristol, and many of my rellies came from/were born there.

The following ALL have the surname BRANDON..........

Mary Baptised St Philip & St Jacob 12/9/1824.
Can you confirm please?

Charlotte baptised 30/4/1826 ?

Samuel Cornish baptsied 27/4/1828 ?

Charles Born 1833 ?

Maria Born 1836 ?

John William Born 1841 ?
Died June qtr. 1855 ?

Sarah Ann Louise/a? Born 1843
Died June qtr. 1851 ?


marks mean I dont know where they were baptised and if you have access to the deaths Marcelle could you check those too please?

All the above names were the children of Charles & Martha Brandon.

The following were the children of Samuel Cornish & Frances Brandon....................

Sarah Louise Born 1850 ?
Died at 9 months of age, so may not have been baptised??

Frances Brandon Born 1852 ?

Samuel Brandon Born 1859 ?

Charles Brandon Born 1860 ?

Maria Brandon Born 1855 ?

All of the above were born in Bristol Marcelle..............I have taken liberty with this and am sorry but, anything you find for me will be most useful and appreciated. Thank you very much.

It is with great excitement I come across your Look up offer for Bristol baptisms 1754-1812! Would you be able to look for STOCK baptisms in Bristol for that period? (Any and every if possible - or is that too cheeky?)

My STOCKs appear in the Mangotsfield area c.1808 onwards and there are burials too for STOCKs born c.1740-1750s.

My ancestor William Stock married Ann Monks in 1808 and was born in the 1780s I think - he had a brother Thomas Stock (who married Ann's sister), Thomas was born similar sort of time.

Looking forward very much to hearing from you!!

Kind regards


Marcelle Report 5 Nov 2007 11:39

Hi Nathanael

I have to go to work now but will look into detail later this evening.
Here are the William's I found:

William Stock baptised 11/08/1773 @ St Mary Redcliffe, Father Edward Mother Elizabeth

William Stock baptised 07/04/1795 @ Mangotsfield, he was baptised at the age of 10 years. Father Mark Mother Ann(this would match yours)

William Stock baptised 11/03/1804 @ St Augustine Father Thomas Mother Ann

William Stock baptised 25/12/1812 at 3 weeks @ St Paul Father George Mother Mary

William Spry Stock baptised 27/07/1809, corn 04/03/1809 Father William Mother Harriet Bromfield



Nathanael Report 5 Nov 2007 12:49


That's brilliant - yes there were a couple of boys named Mark born to William and Ann - including the eldest son (from memory..) so that name is definitely in the Stock family! I really appreciate your quick response - looking forward to hearing from you later! Could you find other children of Mark and Ann and any others for the area around Mangotsfield going back to 1754?

Michelle Report 5 Nov 2007 21:43

Hello Marcelle,

I am looking for the baptism of Charles Burge, b.c. 1786 in Bedminster.

Also of his daughters, Mary Ann (b.c.1816), Caroline (b.c.1821), Ellen (b.c.1827) all in Bedminster I think, and his son another Charles Burge born around 1836, possibly in St.Augustine rather than Bedminster.

Any info would be a big help.
Many thanks,


Nathanael Report 5 Nov 2007 23:08


Thank you ever so much, it's amazing to have come across your look up offer! Mark and Ann Stock from Mangotsfield are my ancestors, and their five children all born on the same day, William, Thomas, Charles, Susannah and Mary. I think the family of Thomas and Mary Stock, with children christened in the 1750s, are also linked, but Mark I guess might be an older child of theirs born before 1754?
It would be great if there was a marriage recorded for Mark and Ann, and any others in Mangotsfield or St James, Bristol would be very interesting too!

Kind regards


Marcelle Report 6 Nov 2007 08:45

Hi Michelle

I checked for Charles Burge and found 2 possibles:

Charles Burge baptised 03/11/1783 @ St Peter Father John Mother Ann

Charles Burge baptised 29/12/1784 @ St Peter Father John Mother Ann

Just a thought but maybe it is the same John & Ann and the first Charles died?

I then searched for any children with the surname Burge and a father Charles.
All the children below had a father Charles and Mother Mary, this was the only Charles Burge.

Caroline baptised 10/06/1821 @ St Paul, family living at Newfoundland Street
Charles 13/04/1828 @ St Augustine, Family living at Hanover Street
Elizabeth baptised 05/07/1829 @ St Augustine, born 21/03/1829, family lving at Hanover Street
Helen baptised 05/07/1829 @ St Augustine born 25/02/1824, family living at Hanover Street
Jane baptised 24/08/1817 @ St Paul born 24/03/1817, family living at Newfoundland Street
Mary Ann baptised 23/10/1814 @ St Paul, family living at Newfoundland Street
Robert baptised 05/09/1813 @ St Paul, family living at Newfoundland Street
Sarah baptised 07/09/1823 @ SS Philip & Jacob, family living at St Philip
Susannah baptised 25/03/1819 @ St Paul, family living at Newfoundland street.

For all the baptisms Charles is noted as a cooper



Michelle Report 6 Nov 2007 15:57

Hi Marcelle,

Thanks so much for finding my Burges. That's definitely who I was looking for as his wife is Mary and he was a cooper! I thought Mary was his second wife but looks as though they'd been married far longer than I thought (unless he had two wives called Mary).
Thanks again,
