Hello Marcelle,
Thank you for your kind offer. Please could you search the Bristol Marriage Index for William HICKS / HICKES / HICK marrying an Eliza in about 1827. They later lived in Bath and my search for the marriage is widening outwards!
Best wishes, Jeff

Hi Marcelle

Im looking for a marriage between Abraham Bryant and Martha - - (thanks to a previous lookup of yours I can now confirm that these are my relatives parents)



Marcelle Report 26 Feb 2008 10:40

Hi Maggi

The marriage disc covers 1813 - 1837 so cant check the witnesses for you.

Took a look for John abt 1775 but nothing

Did find:

John Fenner 18/03/1810 @ Henbury Father John Mother Mary

Elizabeth 15/12/1811 @ Henbury Father John Mother Mary


Checkec marriages for John Fenner and nothing. Nothing for an Elizabeth.

The only Fenner marriage was for a Mary Fenner to Isaac Hutton on thr 30/05/1836 @ St Mary Le Port

Hi Marcelle - I am interested in any Barlett entries you can find.

My partner has an offshoot of his tree where there was a Mary Ann Rodda who married a Charles Bartlett. I have been unable to find their marriage or the baptisms of their children - possibly one called Mary Ann, then there was Charles Dryall Bartlett, Daniel Rodda Bartlett and there was a James and a Richard. I have found Charles Dryall's marriage and his death and his brother Daniel's death and their mother's death - have their father's will and their mother's will and Daniel's will but wondering if you could find anything else for them! Long shot I know!

They were from the Bristol area - Charles died in Easton.

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi Alexandra

Found the following:

I could only find 2 marriages for Charles Bartlett

Charles & Emma Page 17/07/1831 @ SS Philp & Jacob

Charles & Elizabeth Appleby 13/10/1834 @ SS Philip & Jacob

Found these baptisms:

James 19/12/1797

Elizabeth 25/11/1796

Daniel Rodd (no a on the end) 02/10/1801 at 2 months

Daniel 10/04/1800 Born March

Charles Dryall 02/07/1795 born 02 June

Richard 16/02/1803 born 17/01/1803

All were children of Charles & Mary Ann, baptised at St James

Then found these children of Charles Dryall & Elizabeth

Charles Bartlett 10/01/1836 born 07/03/1831

Daniel Bartlett 10/01/1836 born 04/10/1835

Children baptised at St James. The family were living at St Pauls and Charles Dryall was an iron monger

There were other children born to a Charles and Elizabeth but couldn't be 100% sure they were yours as doesn't say Charles Dryall as father

Hope this helps

If so I would be grateful for some help.
I'm looking for the baptism of Charles Bennett between 1818 - 1821 around Bristol.Horfield?I am uncertain exactly as censuses say 1821 but his death cert age works out to 1818/19.
I believe his parents were Henry & Charlotte.
Thanks for any help

Hi Maggi

I searched baptisms 1813 - 1837 and found these:

Charles Harford Bennett baptised 6/1/1822 @ ST James father Henry Mother Charlotte. Henry was a labourer living @ St James

I then searched for all children with father Henry Mother Charlotte and found these, they may ring a bell to you or fit in some where:

George Bennett baptised 16/04/1837 @ Westbury On Trym Father Henry a labourer living @ Westbury

Amelia Bennet (one t) baptised 12/7/1835 @ Northwick & Redwick Father Henry a farmer living at Marsh Common

Jane Bennet baptised 25/08/1833 father Henry a labourer living @ Marsh Common

Sarah Bennet baptised 26.09.1824 father Henry a labourer living @ Marsh Common

All baptised @ Northwick & Redwick (never heard of it)

Hope this helps and if you need anything else let me know.


Found these marriages, are they yours?

Henry Bennett & Helen or Ellen Daniel OTP 28/06/1830 @ SS Philip & Jacob
