Hi Angela There is a john perrett in brixham but definately no charity in devon at all. There is also a John Carlisle in the Eye infirmary in Devon but no sarahs in the Brixham area. Do you have any clues on their age?


Angela Report 4 Sep 2005 08:57

Thank you for looking. They are all on 1851 census as couples. John (1784) and Charity (1788) Perrett/Perrott were living at Overgang, Brixham. John Sharp is 1770 and his wife Sarah, according to 1851 census was about 1787 though most people have her down as 1780, I'm not sure if one or both of those dates are mistakes? She does seem to have been a lot younger than him though. Hope this is some help. Angela


Angela Report 4 Sep 2005 09:31

Robyn I'm really sorry I gave you the wrong surname initially for John and Sarah, their name on the census would be Sharp I gave you Sarah's maiden name, sorry again. Angela


Robyne Report 4 Sep 2005 14:42

There is definately no Charity in any of the areas, so she was either out of the county and in one not listed yet or perhaps they werent married by then? Sarah and John were living in Higher Stree, Brixham aged 60 and 65 respectively. John was a labourer

Hi Robyne Thank you so much for the look up on the Maisey family in Cheltenham Gloucester. Yes, I would like to see what you have found. I was told that in 1700's also called Richard born Painswick, does this help? Your help is indeed appreciated, thank you


Julia Report 9 Sep 2005 22:47

Robyne could I ask you to please look up John GILDING for me. Aged 10 in 1841 born in St Mary Church Devon. I'm hoping he'll be with the family below, but no one seems to have him there except me! James Gilding 40, St Mary Church, Devon Maria 36 Emma 15 Elizabeth 7 George 4 Ellen 1 I'm interested in them even if John isn't with them, but I'd love to know where John is too! Thank you, Julia


Lyn Report 10 Sep 2005 00:36

Hi Robyne Thank you for the kind offer. Please could you see if you can find George and Martha Kidd in Essex (Stratford area) by 1841 they had 2 children George and Charles born 1838 and 1840 but they were married in 1819 so am hoping there may have been other children. Lyn


Rita Report 10 Sep 2005 07:26

Hi Robyne, Don't know if you can help me with this one on the 1841: Thomas BLOUNT born 1822 Bewdley, Worcestershire with wife Mary Ann BLOUNT born c.1821 in Worcestershire. They should be living in Bewdley, but the census returns I have looked at have been unreadable. Thanks. Rita

Hi Robyne I see you are inundated with requests and so will understand if you can't get to my very late one- thanks for offering anyway - it is very generous of you! Sarah Munro born 1795 St George's in the East, with or without John Thomas Munro (Husband), Berry Rd, Clerkenwell , Middlesex. She may have RObert Hugh Munro with her (son)

Robyne,will you please look in Painswick Gloucestershire for King George b ?1786.I hope he has a wife Rebecca with him and a daughter Sarah. There may be other children.I hope the surname is George. On the 1851 census he was named George King which may have been a wrong transcription. Sheila

Apologies for the delay, i had no idea it had jumped up again! John Gilding I have one in the right age and right area John Gilding 50 Ag Lab Fanny 45 Maria 14 Harriett 10 john 7 Eliza 5 There could be other children younger, but the page ends there and you cant just look at the pages individually like you can on Ancestry St Mary Church Devon


Robyne Report 13 Sep 2005 20:03

Mary Ann Crocker Mary is living in Cherry Garden Street, Stoke Damerel but is only there on her own, aged 14 It looks like she is with Michael and Sarah Luin? Sorry image is really bad


Robyne Report 13 Sep 2005 20:07

Martha Kidd Sorry there isnt any Martha or George of a suitable age in Essex or any area that is available.
