Hi Elaine

Neal is the correct spelling. So if you have more details of that christening, that would be super. Mind you I will have no way of knowing if it is the correct one, but it may help me on 'Family Search' etc.

Thanks again everyone is so helpful to us newbies.

William and Sarah Limbert children baptisms from the year of 1772 in Wymeswold, Walton on The Wold and Burrow Upon Soar.

Thank you

Hi Mike,

You had been trying to find a marriage for a Henry Harley and Ann (maybe Street) in or around Buckminster or Melton Mowbray , c 1780's ......

I had been doing some "google" searches and found a marriage for a Henry Harley ( as requested in my previous thread. It reads...
Henry Harley ,p, Buckminster and Ann Bunney marriage at Saxby 24 Dec 1787.. volume 3.. found this on Ancestry Parish and Probate records . Everythings fits perfectly with my info so far.. I did a further search on the IGI and found Ann Bunny and a 'Hen Havley' for the above marriage date, no wonder I could never find the thing, with a misspelling like that and no surname for the bride, so my info gathering is progressing slowly.

I know you are busy, but when you get a chance...

If possible would you be able to find any info on Ann Bunney of maybe Saxby, c 1767... there is nothing on the IGI that I could even start with.

Many thanks as always for your great work, I love reading all the messages on this thread..

Karen of Brisbane
