Bruce Report 5 Dec 2017 22:16

On the 10th February, 1812, William franklin was baptised at St Gabriels church. Binbrook to parents Thomas and Addon Franklin. Can anyone find a marriage for Thomas and addon ?
I have checked the marriages on Lincs to the Past for both churchs at Binbrook without success.

I can't find anything on Findmypast. Sorry.

Thanks for trying


malyon Report 5 Dec 2017 22:48

could the name addon be a mistake not finding a birth or death with that name


malyon Report 5 Dec 2017 22:52

found the name addon but its a male born in Germany
and found name in mexico it seems to be a male name


Bruce Report 5 Dec 2017 22:56

The baptisms entry clearly says Addon. However it may still be misheard by the person makingthe entry. I have not found a marriage for Thomas Franklin with a wife of a similar name,


malyon Report 5 Dec 2017 23:05

there are surnames addon could that be the mothers surname could be they never married as I cant see any more births

That is a possibility and another is that they married at the Wesleyan Chapel at Binbrook. I have another relative who married there. I also have not been able to find any more births.

Greyghost, Austin and Chris, Many thanks for your help.
The marriages and relevant deaths are as follows
William married Hannah Backhouse on 9.6.1831. Hannah died in 1836 and was buried on 25.5.1836
William married Mary Cooling on 12.5.1841. Mary died in 1846 and was buried on 25.4.1846
William married Martha Twain on 21.4.1847. Martha died in 1894.

I do not think that the Thomas and Ann Franklin are any relation to my familied.
