This site gives some interesting history about Breedon... http://www.benefice*org*uk/breedon_church/the_breedon_story/index*php You will see that Breedon was originally in Derbyshire. Jan

Thanks Mike - that info is really helpful. I had some of their other childrens baptisms, but sometimes Ann is called Elizabeth. But I know they are all the same people because I have seen their grave stones (and Theresa is their daughter so thats really great.) Do you know if you have to be a member to buy the disks?

Hi Mike, I'm not sure how you are geting on with the WHELBANDS. As I said before I am trying to find the link between the Nottingham and Leicester Whelbands. The furthest back that the Nottingham Whelbands go on Ancestry is John Whelband b1789. His place of birth is given as Thurgarton in Nottingham. However, I'm wondering if maybe he said Thurmaston or Thurcaston, and the census man misheard him. When Johns daughters were christened, John and his wife Mary were entered as Welbourn! but his daughters are both Whelbands when they got married. Not sure whether this helps or confuses! Judith

Greeting's Again Sylvia..... I'm sorry to have confused you I was only giving a potted History for the other Jabez Tomlinson I had found who I had tracked up to 1861. in Lancashire But now i have found your Jabez from 41 through to the 1861 census which you posted Even if his names differed through out down as Taber and I see he's down as John on the 61. ..... and I could only get him through Rebbecca in 1851...... Sorry again for confusing you MIKE. xx.....Smacks wrist & grabs coat exit's sharp right >>>>>>

No worries Mike, my Tomlinsons have me confused most of the time. I am really looking for a George Tomlinson (occupation blacksmith) and his son John Tomlinson. John Tomlinson supposed to be born Belper Derbyshire 1842/44/50 on different census, i only have `61 upwards, in `61 he was a groom for the rector of Nobury. No trace of either of them before then. Cannot find his birth either. John married Mary Spencer in 1863( my gt grandparents), Little Chester in Derby. Sarah Calladine and John Tomlinson were witnesses. I have the cert. Sarah went on to marry Jabez Tomlinson in 1867 in Little Chester. Now the reason i`m looking at Jabez Tomlinsons family is, someone suggested to me that maybe John Tomlinson was not born in Belper. But the family moved there when he was a baby, so he put Belper on the census. So it got me wondering Could George (Johns father) and Jabez snr be brothers, therefore making John and Jabez jnr cousins. Could George also have come from Breedon and could John have been born there. I hope i havent confused you too. Sylvia

Hello Please can you help? I am trying to find the marriage of Joseph Silvester c 1813 and Priscilla Watts c1821, very likely in Loughborough. The 1851 census shows them in Loughborough with their son Joseph Watts Silvester. I have his birth certificate for 6/3/1849 and they appear to be married at this time.
