Very good thank you all. HOW far can we go back?

greyghost Report 13 Jan 2020 18:26

You haven't said where you've looked, whether the marriage is the correct one (even if not where you say), whether you mean Stapleford or Staplegrove.

How far you can go back depends on whether you can find the correct links to take you back, which we haven't done as yet.

If that is the correct census in 1841 then Richard could have been born 1797-1801 and Elizabeth 1792-1796 as ages were rounded down in that census to the nearest 5 for anyone over 15

Where have you found dates and places?

The more info you can give us, the more help we can give you.

??? the Charles in the 1841 register if North Petherton does come into it - relationships aren't shown on the 1841 census but possibly a brother to Elizabeth?

I think it's Staplegrove. Found info on Family tree search.

I think the Gardiner's go way back, I Have a rough note of Valentine Gardiner 1723-1799 and a Valentine Gardener 1698 and a brother Thomas 1695 and John 1693. .

You need to be accurate John.

Is the marriage correct - not where you said in your OP

Is the 1841 census the correct family

Where were they after that?

Use this free site - various Valentine Gardner baptisms. also Thomas', (amongst others), but we haven't determined Elizabeth's parents yet
