Aged 81. Cert No. 7 a 314. The only way to know for sure if this is your Mary Clarke born Woodhouse Eaves 1830. Is to get the Certificate.= £7.00. There is NO OTHER WAY other than that certificate.!!! And hope the informant know enough about Mary To state place of birth as Woodhouse Eaves MIKE.

*** F.A.O. *** Gemma O’ Canada. I had a look at the original Parish Registers To solve the multi Baptisms of James Fox’s which I posted. Below is a TRUE transcriptions of the Parish Registers Baptism with Parents James & Sarah FOX. ANNO DOMINI BAPTISMS :~ 1812. John. Son Of James & Sarah Fox. .. Bapt…. 18th. October. 1812. ( That’s all the information we get for this year.) Following the Rose Act 1813. to simplify Parish Registers We get :~ Entry. No. 54. 25th. December. 1814. Joseph. Son of James & Sarah Fox. Thurmaston South End. James Frame Work Knitter. Entry. No. 193. 28th. March. 1819. James. Son of James & Sarah Fox. Thurmaston South End. Frame Work Knitter. Entry. No. 249. 28th. December. 1820. Mary, Daughter of James & Sarah Fox. Thurmaston South End. Frame Work Knitter. ALL above conducted by H. Woodcock. Curate. Entry No. 343. 6th. September. 1824. William. Son of James & Sarah Fox. Thurmaston South End. Frame Work Knitter. Entry No. 421. 30th. July. 1826. CHARLES NOT James. Son of James & Sarah Fox. Thurmaston South End. Frame Work Knitter. Entry No. 526. 7th. June . 1829. THOMAS NOT James. Son of James & Sarah Fox. Thurmaston South End. Frame Work Knitter. Entry No. 609. 25th. March. 1832. Charles. Son of James & Sarah Fox. Thurmaston South End. Frame Work Knitter. The last four Baptisms conducted by J. Fell. Curate. So Hope that solves the problem with too many James’s…… BURIAL REGISTERS:~ Entry No. 201. 25th February 1823. Mary Fox. Thurmaston South End. Aged. 2. years old. Entry. No. 295. 30th. June. 1827. Charles Fox. Thurmaston South End. Age as = Infant. ( Under I year ) Both Burials conducted by :~ J. Fell. Curate. ANNO DOMINI MARRIAGES:~ 1811. Marriage Transcript reads thus :~ St. Michael & All Angel’s Parish Church. Thurmaston South End. Entry No. 4. James Fox.& Sarah Greasley. Both of this Township. Married in this Chapel By Banns This Twenty-second day of December. In the year One Thousand Eight Hundred and Eleven. By Me :~ H. Woodcock. Curate. James signed by his own signature Sarah by her own Mark = + Wit’s :~ George Sarson. William Bishop. The scan of this entry is winging it’s way to your home E- mail address. Re:~ The search for George Whitehead born / Baptised Loughborough c 1824. In the last two days I have trawled the Parish registers for Loughborough At the Records Office. But only to draw a blank …..Sorry. Plenty of Whites, Wrights, Whitesmiths, Whitehall’s …….. But NO Whitehead’s. So I have pre ordered the records ( Films & hard copies held in the strong room ) For ALL nonconformists & Methodists Baptisms… and around 1824. For the next time I’m at the Records Office Hoping for better results.. Hope this helps. MIKE. xx

Hi Sarah Like Mike said on page 6 it might prove hard to track down Johns death if he was living in Northants on 1891 Census. He could have died in Northants,Leicester or who knows where. Bev


Charles Report 20 Jul 2007 18:07

This is as near as i can get for 1841 - they are in Diseworth/. Goscot Catherine Gant 4 Christopher Gant 8 Sarah Gant 35 Here we are in 1851 in Sheepshed where Catherine is listed as 'granddaughter' Mary Allwood 76 Thomas Allwood 82 Catherine Gent 14 Sarah Gent 50 I don't see her in 1861 but there is a Catherine gent who marries in 1860 in Bsford, Notts. Edit ... actually Beeston according to parish records. Husband is Thomas Barnes, date 28/2/1860.


Charles Report 20 Jul 2007 18:11

Mike Saw your note about ordering non-conformist records. Looks like my Bentleys and Kirks (Sheepshed) were non-conformist which is why I am having difficulty working farther back. I have a bunch of disconnected events but cannot connect them. Do you think this is something those record might help with?

Hi Mike Thank you so much for sorting out the James Fox confusion!!! That is fantastic. As for George Whitehead...he is proving to be a tricky little bugger!!!! I really appreciate all the effort you have put in so far. I have been googleing the Whitehead surname, and have found that it was often mistaken for Whitchead...not sure if this helps at all??? I really am beginning to think that he was not born in Leicestershire at all!!!!! I did find something interesting on the 1871 census though. I found a George Whitchead (b. 1824, Loughborough) living in Nottingham with his parents,George Whitchead (b. 1804 Church Aston, Yorkshire) and Ann Whitchead (b.1796 East Leake, Nottingham). But on the same census I also found George Whitehead (b.1824, Loughborough) living with his wife Elizabeth in Nottingham!!!!! I am at a total loss!!!! This man is determined to confuse us!!!!
