Hi Christine,

The Taylor family originated from Leicestershire - James [the optician] was born in Leicestershire and his father was a Malster journeyman.

I will see if Ancestry will let me have another 'trial' - I have tried a couple of times but it would not let me. Failing that I can access at the Archives.

The links were for Nottingham which was the home of the Taylor family at that time. The Woods were still in Geddington.

You could take out the Ancestry free trial even if you have done it before.

Hi Ladykira,

I am obviously being a bit stupid - but cannot see anything that links to the Wood family in the two directory links you have posted. Please can you point me in the right direction?

Also - I dont have access to Ancestry at home - so cannot access the link for the tree you have posted!

No mention of Isaiah - or anyone else - except his wife!!! :-(

Hi Christine,

Will [excuse me for the pun!!] let you know what, if anything, I find out!!



LadyKira Report 12 Jan 2010 14:46

Go for it.


lainie39 Report 12 Jan 2010 13:23

I have searched 'family search' under Moore and nothing came up!!

I have found a Will made by Enos - I think I may obtain a copy - it could answer all my questions!?

Got to be worth a try.


LadyKira Report 12 Jan 2010 10:20

I wonder if isaiah was baptised under the name Moore?


LadyKira Report 11 Jan 2010 23:25

In 1841 John and Elizabeth at 50 are the oldest Woods in Geddington


LadyKira Report 11 Jan 2010 22:57

If John and Elizabeth were Isaiah's parents then he was likely to be the eldest as they wer married in 1812 too.

It is possible that John and or Elizabeth were fom Cranford or elsewhere but Settled in Geddington as newley weds.

Hi Ladykira,

I could ASSUME that they are both related - but that could be leading me down the wrong path! I totally agree that the coincidences of place and name are too good to ignore - but I can find no evidence of a connection between them. I always thought that the basis of good research was fact.

I can find no document with both their names on i.e. by the 1841 census Isaiah had married and had a family of his own - so the 1841 census shows only Enos and siblings. I dont know how or where to access a birth record [if there is one for 1809-1811] and I can find no record of Isaiah's baptism.

The only proven connection is that they both had a father called John. Isaiah's father was, I know, a tailor [as it is stated on his marriage cert] I have no idea what the occupation of Enos' father was, as it doesnt state on any of the census returns.

This is John and Elizabeth still with their younger chidren in 1841

I have just reread something you said earlier

You thought the 1812 marriage was too early for Alfredis father

I was posting it as the marriage for Isaiah's father. I am convinced that Isaiah and John were brothers. Got to fly now but will spwak tonight
