Missing Marriage for Joseph Moulds

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Julie Report 11 Aug 2019 15:09

Joseph Moulds born 1750, baptised Little Ponton Lincolnshire. Buried Great Ponton Lincolnshire 1794. Baptisms for 3 sons found at Great Ponton with mother's name Sarah. She married again in 1803 to Richard Green, I have that marriage, but have been unable to establish where and when she married Joseph Moulds. The baptism of the oldest child was in 1778. Can anyone locate the missing marriage and thus identify her maiden name?

Just for the record -

Sarah's second marriage actually 1802;

Richard Green
in the England, Select Marriages, 1538–1973
Name: Richard Green
Gender: Male
Marital status: Single
Marriage Date: 13 Dec 1802
Marriage Place: Great Ponton, Lincoln, England
Spouse: Sarah Moulds
FHL Film Number: 1450484

But I don't see her marriage to Joseph.

Sorry, slip of the finger on my part re marriage year for Sarah's second marriage. This is one of the few Lincolnshire marriages within my tree I haven't found so far.

???? a thought

Only 10 miles away from each other

Joseph Moldes
England, Leicestershire Parish Registers, 1533-1991
Event Type: Marriage
Event Date: 20 Jan 1778
Event Place: Wymondham, Leics
Event Place:
Residence Place: Wymondham
Religion: Anglican
Spouse's Name: Sarah Huddlestone
Spouse's Residence Place: Wymondham
Page Number: 14

Would perhaps go with this baptism -

Sarah Huddlestone
England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
Name: Sarah Huddlestone
Residence Place: Wymondham, Leics
Christening Date: 2 Dec 1751
Christening Date (Original):
Christening Place: Wymondham
Father's Name: Chris. Huddlestone
Mother's Name: Sar

Quick look shows there are Joseph Mould baptisms Leicestershire, but not Wymondham or as close as Ponton.
Residence place not necessarily meaning he came from there, just resident when married

FMP has 1771 (Sept. 18th) for one Baptism...Thomas Moulds, Great Ponton, Joseph, Sarah.

Thanks greyghost, I've perhaps been a bit blinkered here and not thought of looking across the border into Leicestershire. Slap on wrist to self as I do have other marriages that are Linc/Leics. I think your suggestion warrants further investigation.

Chris Ho - I think you have the wrong year, I have this bapt on FMP as 1781.

No worries, I do the same thing!

Have done a bit more digging. First child I have for Joseph & Sarah was bapt Dec 1778, the marriage found by greyghost is Jan 1778. I can find no trace of any baptisms for Joseph & Sarah anywhere nearer to Wymondham than Great Ponton. There is a batch south of Leicester. I have a burial for Sarah in May 1838 that has an age at death of 85, which is quite close. Now looking for anything else that might add weight to this being the right marriage.
