Greeting’s Again…..

EYES DOWN !!!! …….

Edward Hall c1775 and Mary Hall c1777 are my 4x G Grandparents.
Their son Charles is my 3x G Grandfather.
I want to find out for sure who Charles’ siblings are. On familysearch they give siblings.

My Reply.....:~

Note any alterations to your original message.

Parish Registers Read thus :~

1798 Charles. Son of Edward & Mary Hall. Bapt.12. June. J. Glazebrook. Vicar.

1803, William. Son of Edward & Mary Hall. Bapt…15th.June.

1805, James. Son of Edward & Mary Hall. Bapt…10th. June…Jno. Dalley. Vicar.

1806, Mary. Daughter of Edward & Mary Hall. Bapt. 10th. June.
1808, Elizabeth ANN. Dau. of Edward & Mary Hall. .Bapt…22nd Jun.
John Eddowes. Minister…Elizabeth. … Dies 2nd. Aug. 1820.

1811 Sarah. Dau. of Edward & Mary Hall……..Bapt. 18th. June.
John Eddowes. Vicar.

Now we Get Edwards OCCUPATION……:~

Entry No’ 18. June 14th.1814..:~

George. Son of Edward & Mary Hall.
Stocking Maker.

John Eddowes. Vicar.


Baptism Registers ANNO DOMINI 1775.:~

EDWARD. Son of William Hall by his wife Mary.
Baptised…….9th. July. …Thomas Hastings. Vicar.
So....... you now have the next generation back

Also a signature for an Edward Hall Church Warden to Francis E. Gibbs
At the bottom of the registers A.D. 1795 ~ 6.

Also.. A Burial record that reads thus :~

Edward. Natural Son of Mary Hall. Buried ….May. 7th.

Not sure what to make of that one other than Edward was a Baseborn child.

So…. There we have it…….

Best delete the list I sent you within the marriage details of
John & Elisabeth Hoster…..A Senior moment on my behalf I think …Sorry.

Frazzled Report 27 Aug 2008 22:37

Hello Mike

Thank you so much for sorting out my mess!! I shall amend my tree at once and add the occupation of Edward.

Might be difficult to find out who Edward was who died 1809. His mother was Mary Hall who married Edward Hall so I have to sort out which branch of Hall's she came from!!

No it's too late and it's been another long day so I shall not add more confusion - I did enough yesterday!!

Thank you again for your never ending patience

Hi there
But I have been reading your replies, and none seen to contain Masters.
I really don't know if this is of any consequence.
But I lived in a village Lyddington, Rutland. for yrs.
When my parents and I first moved there. Two old ladies used to live in a house. although only 1 survived when we moved there,and lived as a hermit. The familys although only talk, thro the old village. That they had something to do with teachers at Uppingham & Lyddington school. Although I can't verify this info. It may lead your thoughts farther.
Good luck

I can not see a Marriage for Oliver & Ann within Leicester/shire
Also checked out Spondon. Derbyshire, But NO luck I’m afraid
Same goes for Robert……..

Just have this feeling that both might have married in St.George’s Parish Church. ……
Then if so……I’m afraid that ALL Marriage Registers before 1853.
were destroyed by the BIG fire at the Church in 1911.

But for the moment I’m exploring other avenues…….

Hi Mike

Just read your reply of 21st again, is it true of all tradesmen that if they worked for someone else they may not be included on the census. Surely they should have been included by the Head of the House
as lodgers.

Any luck with James Neal and Emily Foster marriage in 1828.

Thanks Sue
