Seasonal Greeting’s…….. Sarah. ……. Quote “ What advice would you give me now to do on my tree?” Apart from a large jar of PROZAC …..lol :0)))) NO……….I think if you want to go back. Then you will have to trawl through Parish Registers looking for Baptisms, Marriages, Deaths & Wills etc Very time consuming…… And in the end…. Because of the popular Christian & Surnames you will not be certain for sure. Un lest the same Occupations and family 1st.names run through out. Sorry…..? I must have missed your ref to the Families:- Howkins & Pickering Can you refresh my memory again please ? MIKE. o<] 8-) >

Your very Welcome again Sarah. I can confirm that that marriage did NOT take place in the Parishes of Queniborough or in the Village of Barrow Upon Soar . I tried to find it this afternoon at the Records Office but drew a blank for both Parishes ... Barrow Upon Soar Parish was a very Big Parish covering most of the Villages from Loughborough in the West to the Villages which Lay to the East of the Main Melton Mowbray Road. To the North of the City of Leicester. MIKE.

Greeting’s Again Sarah….. The only Sarah Atkins Marriage found 1850 ~ 52. July Qrt. 1851. Sarah Atkins. ~ DAVID GOODMAN. Billesdon District. Cert No. XV. 65. Sarah was born in Goadby.( Billesdon District ) They went on to rise a Family in Tur Langton. I have tracked both Harriett & Henry through the 1841. ~ 51. Censuses. On the 1851. Census. Henry (20) was working on a Farm in BARKBY THORPE. Harriett (19) was a servant working in BARKBY. These villages are only 1.2. miles apart. And both villages come under Barrow Upon Soar District. So…..Next time I’m at the Records Office I’ll have a look at the Registers for both Parishes for that Marriage in 1852. MIKE. xx
