Hi Marcelle

I am at breaking point I am trying to lookup My fathers side of the family.


Charles is my Grandfather
Ernest is his father he had brothers William and Richard and Sisters Alberta and Nora

I am sorry that I do not have any dates to go with them.

Anythink you can find will be a great help as I do not know were else to go from here.

Thanks again

Hi Marcelle

I am hoping that there will be a baptism for Jane Louisa Garrard/Gerard? born about 1836/37 Bristol. Father's name is James.

Thankyou for offering these lookups.

Hi Marcelle,

I wonder if you would please look for a George Fender born 1837 in Bristol. Father's name is also George.



Marcelle Report 17 Oct 2007 18:11

Hello Willow

Found this for William Pinket. I checked Pinkett and there was only one:
William Pinket baptised 06/05/1821 @ Yate
Father John Mother Elizabeth
John was a labourer

There were a couple of Maria Bryants around that time:

Maria Father George Mother Maria 25/01/1818 Wick & Abson

Maria Father Abraham Mother Martha 24/07/1825 Kingswood

Maria Father John Mother Hannah 27/05/1827 St George

Maria Father Joseph Mother Martha 07/09/1828 Clifton, St Andrew

Hope that helps

Sorry Sue
Been all through the discs and all I came up with under Orum is Moses.
Moses married Hannah Leyshon a widow in Bedminster, St John 24/12/1821

If you do get anything to go on in the future just pm me for a look up

Good Luck


Marcelle Report 17 Oct 2007 18:56

Hi Carol

Couldn't find any of the names except a James Gerrard baptised 02/01/1791 in Alveston. Father John Mother Sarah

If I can help in the future just let me know

7pm England time


Marcelle Report 17 Oct 2007 18:58

No luck I am afraid

I did find a Philip Fender who married an Elizabeth Fender 06/09/1820 @ S Pauls

Also a Mary Ann Fender who married James Nichols 27/07/1828 @ Bedminster St John

And a Sarah Fender married a William Hune 13/12/1824 : St Thomas

Sorry that was all I could find



Neil Report 17 Oct 2007 19:40

Thanks very much for looking. I'm not aware of any of those people in my tree but will keep the information just in case (you never know what you might find in the future!!).


Willow Report 17 Oct 2007 19:43

Hi marcelle

Thanks ever so much, what a gem!

I dont suppose I can be cheeky and ask if you can have a look to see if you have a marriage for Williams parents?


Carol Report 18 Oct 2007 02:47

Marcelle, thankyou for checking the baptisms. I will keep that record in case it connects in the future.

Were there any Gerrard marriages on the cd? Sorry if you have already checked.

Very much appreciated



Marcelle Report 18 Oct 2007 09:42

Hi Willow

Marcelle Report 18 Oct 2007 10:52

Hi Marcelle

Thank you for your kind offer.

Please could you check for a Baptism of a John Tapley c1811. Sorry I have no more details than this as this is one of my many brick walls.

Thanks in advance.

Best wishes


Marcelle Report 18 Oct 2007 21:34

Sorry Jo nothing came up at all in the baptismal registers. I also checked the marriage index but nothing except a Richard Taplay (TAPLAY) marrying a Maria TAPLEY (notice the spellings) 29/08/1822 @ Bedminster St John



Willow Report 18 Oct 2007 23:17

Hi Marcelle
