Hi Claire
Nothing on the marriage index for 1813 - 1837. Do you have anymore details for Joseph ie baptism date, Mother or father?

The only marriage on the index for Joseph Godwin was 04/07/1829 to Sarah Osborne @ SS Philip & Jacob



Marcelle Report 16 Nov 2007 09:45

Hi Alan

George Blacklock baptised 09/16/1833 Father John Mother Sarah, living at Love Street. Father John a blindmaker

Ann Blacklock baptised 09/06/1833, same as above. (usually it states age at baptism, but no age recorded so George & Ann may have been twins or may just not be recorded?)

Edwin Blacklock baptised 04/12/1836 Father John Mother Sarah living at Love Street, father a blindmaker.

James Blacklock baptised 12/10/1834 Father John Mother Sarah living at Hotwells. Father a blind maker

Hope this helps


disc covers 1813-1837 so Sarah Ann wont be on it

Hi Elizabeth

Sorry they are to far South and not covered on the discs

Thank you for your kind offer.

Please could you see if there is a baptism of a William Millett at Westbury on Trym probably c.1808 but could be between 1806 and 1812.

I'm also looking for a marriage of a George Millett to Mary c.1799 at Westbury on Trym.

Thanks Annette


Marcelle Report 10 Dec 2007 11:19

Hi Annette

2 possibles but I think the first one is yours:

William Millet baptised 10/03/1805 @ Henbury. Father George Mother Mary

William Page Millett baptised 27/02/1801 @ ST James @ 5 weeks old. Father John Mother Elizabeth

The marriage disc is from 1813 - 1837 so if the first one is yours the marriage won't be on there.

Would you like me to see if there are more children for George & Mary?



woodpecker Report 10 Dec 2007 11:30

Thank you so much Marcelle, you're a star!

It's very kind of you search for other children of George and Mary, the IGI has a gap between 1802 and 1813, so I'm sure there should be more.



Marcelle Report 10 Dec 2007 11:37

Annette, here they are:

Charles Millett baptised 03/08/1817

Robert Millet baptised 29/01/1815

Jane Millett baptised 03/01/1813

Mary Millett baptised 06/18/1820

Thomas Millett baptised 06/02/1823

All children of George & Mary. George is noted as a labourer and all the above baptised @ Westbury On Tryme.
Robert was the only one of the above baptised Millet and not Millett.

If you need any more just let me know. The disc may contain Elizabeth 1802, George 1806 and John 1810 marriages



woodpecker Report 10 Dec 2007 11:53

Thank you for helping, you've filled a gap for me and at last I have a more accurate date for William who never seemed to know how old he was!


Alan Report 10 Dec 2007 12:06

Hi Marcelle

Can you have a look for Marriage
John Blacklock to a Sarah ?
Children born all in 1830s in Bristol, so hopefully marriage in Bristol.
