Hi Mike Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find John's marriage either on familysearch. His first child was born in 1835 so there would be no certificate. I have already got the other information that you sent but thank you very much anyway. I will check the thread in a couple of weeks time. Thank you for going to so much trouble it will be brilliant if you could find John's parents. I now live near Newcastle upon Tyne so am unable to look up the parish records myself. Incidently, my home along Elmesthorpe Lane was one of the bungalows at the bottom opposite the old farm house. Lindsey

Greeting’s Again…….. Wendy Ummm..? Having looked at the 1841. Census returns for Duns Lane. (Thanks for the pointer as to where they were ) It's difficult to tell if Jane was the Wife That’s one of the downsides to early Censuses. It doesn’t include the relationship to Head of the Household. If I get time next time I’m at the Records Office at Wigston I’ll have a look at the Marriage Registers for those Marriages, and hope ages are given then that should clear up the question as to whether there was two marriages ? MIKE.

Fantastic Mike. That looks very much like mine. Thank you. I found Joseph at Dunns Lane, St. Mary's Parish, Leicester in 1841. Wendy

I would be grateful if you could possibly help me with my GG Grandfather Joseph Jacques. He appears on the 1841 census (born 1827 Leicester) with Joseph (c1771) and Jane Jacques (1799) who I assume are his parents. (I know his father is Joseph a FWK from his marriage certificate) However this Jane is a lot younger than Joseph and she is a widow in 1851. It is possible that Joseph married twice. Could you see if there is a marriage for Joseph Jacques and Jane about 1826 in Leicester, and perhaps a possible one about 1800. Hope you can help. Regards Wendy

So next time you manage to get back on here look for either Part Nine or TEN Or.. click on my name and send me a private message Have you thought of putting the find board on your favorites short cuts ? Elmesthorpe Lane…Know it well just round the corner from my Brother on Belmoral Road…..Daughters on Park Road next to what was the Old Folks Home. Do you have Johns marriage certificate or details.?

Hi Mike So sorry for the delay in replying. I've been to work all day and getting my daughter off the computer at night is - well impossible. You have the right John Haswell. He was married to Elizabeth who was born at St margarets, Leicester. It would be brilliant if you could get the information of his birth from the records for me thank you very very much. There's just a slight problem though. I am moving house on Tuesday and I won't be able to get broadband for three or four days. Then I am going on holiday on Friday so it may be a couple of weeks before I can look at your thread. I'm just hoping that I will be able to find it. Incidently, I used to live down Elmesthorpe Lane with my parents if you know that area. My home is in Newcastle upon Tyne now though. Thanks again Lindsey

Greeting’s & Welcome...... Lindsey…. Great Village Earl Shilton……. Elder Brother & my Daughter live there….. Due to the early birth date of your John (c1818.) I’ll have to look him up in the Parish Registers at the Records Office this week……. To get the answer you are looking for……… Is it the John Haswell who marries an Elizabeth ? She was born St. Margaret’s Parish Leicester. I have a John & Elizabeth Haswell found on 1841, Censuses ( 1851, Has Kasah) & 1861.Elizabeth as a Widow Within either Aston Flamville & Burbage Parishes. Just wonder if he is the son of John Haswell & Hannah née Croft Who were married 2nd Sept 1803. Claybrooke Magna By Licence. ( Claybrooke is only 7.9 miles from Burbage ) Haswell Burials found for Burbage:- Names. / Dates. / Ages.:- Haswell George 23 Oct 1857 16 Haswell JOHN 18 Nov 1860 48 Haswell Elizabeth 21 Nov 1867 11 Haswell Elizabeth 14 Jan 1868 Inf Haswell Betsy 4 Nov 1879 26 Haswell John 26 Mar 1883 43 Await your confirmation this could be the right John his birth date was not the same through out the Census returns went from 1814 ~ 16. Before I look at the parish Registers At Wigston Records Office. MIKE. ( Just a back room worker on Bev's :0))) )

Hi Mike Someone has directed me to your thread which I am finding very interesting as I come from Leicestershire, Earl Shilton in fact. I am hoping that you can help me. I am looking for the baptism of John Haswell, born in 1818 in Burbage and am hoping that this will give me the names of his parents. Lindsey
