Some helpers do not look on the Find Living Relatives board, and the people you are now looking for are dead.
I suggest you start a new thread on the Find Ancestors board.
Could you also confirm that James Douglas born 1775 married in 1821 (at age 46) to Elizabeth - had he been married before?
Also, where did you find that Robert was born in Salisbury, and have you found any of the family on the censuses?

If you have found names in someone's tree.....send a message to that person.

No-one on the boards can answer your question

You are jumping around from one century to should try being methodical


ErikaH Report 26 Mar 2013 11:14

You must work backwards......then you'll know who the children were


ErikaH Report 26 Mar 2013 11:19

Plus one other with no replies


patchem Report 26 Mar 2013 22:09

You have put that Mary England was born in 1782, and married in 1774 to William May.
She cannot get married before she was born.
Can you explain, please.
How did you find your connection to these people?


ErikaH Report 26 Mar 2013 23:09


Will you PLEASE stop jumping around.

Get some method into your research.......for your OWN sake.............

Your posts on here simply do not make any kind of sense, I'm really sorry to say...........we'd love to help, but .....................

If you got the info about the children from the IGI, we can only do the same

No-one can say categorically that they are the 'right' ones.........

You must work backwards.............and find out for yourself whether they are


patchem Report 14 Apr 2013 21:38

None of the helpers can see your family tree.
We just help with what information you give us.

Have you got the certificates for all the births and marriages of your ancestors to confirm your facts?

To copy over from your posting:
'thomas brazier married twice 1, mary allen who had a son thomas born thomas, i have william,'

Thomas Brazier (born when and where?) married twice. 1st to Mary Allen (when?)
Had a son Thomas born Thomas (??)

How did you get back to Thomas Brazier?



Yvonne Report 15 Apr 2013 14:58

thomas brazier born 1757/26.12, flitton with silsoe, beds married mary allen 21/12/1772, barton-le-clay, he married 2 beatricein 6/03/1783 barton= le- clay. beds, the child to thomas and mary i have william, not thomas, and i do not know how to get over that, and i think i may have some name twice, would you please check that, regards yvonne,


patchem Report 15 Apr 2013 19:27

Presumably you believe this is your Thomas
Thomas Brasier
parents:Luke Brasier
NameThomas Brasier GenderMale
Christening Date26 Dec 1757
Father's NameLuke Brasier
Indexing Project (Batch) NumberP00370-1 System OriginEngland-ODM
GS Film number845459 Reference ID

but there is also this one, who may have been in one of the marriages that you quote as it is in Barton-le-Clay.

Name: Thomas Brazier Family Tree
Gender: Male Christening Date: 03 Nov 1754
Father's Name: Luke Brazier Mother's Name: Anne
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: P00392-1 System Origin: England-ODM
GS Film number: 599351

If he married Mary Allen in 1772 he was only 14 (whilst the other Thomas Brazier would be 18) This does not seem likely.

How did you work back to your Thomas?

hi ,i may have gone wrong in the brazie family . when i click on a mane thinking it has gone anther mane ,i may have done it twice, now i am looking for john stringer born 1588 in shilling beds, married ann bennett abt 1611 novvember, died abt 1616. and john stringer born 1564 in shillington beds, had abt five chl. can you help please as the name john stringer comes up ziro. the chl are richard born 1593, d abt 1650. elizabeth born 1698.ellen born1585. richard born 1625 shillington ,beds marr a mary, thanks again, yvonne,


patchem Report 21 Apr 2013 00:16

You have put that the children are:
' richard born 1593, d abt 1650.
elizabeth born 1698.
ellen born1585.
richard born 1625 shillington ,beds marr a mary'

Please can you correct what you have written as the children cannot be born more than 100 years apart.
Is Elizabeth born 1598 not 1698?
Is Richard not a child but a granchild, or related in some other way?

HI sorry abt this, i can not get any where with john stringer born abt 1679, in shillington, beds, did he marry twice to a mary impey, and ann hawley. i have found two family trees but i do not know if they are right, one say he marry mary impeyabt 1704 shillington, beds, one say he married ann hawley, born abt 1679beds. married in 1692 july hogsthorpe, chl john born 1698 hogsthorne. died in aug 1743 in burgh la marsh, married saline good, in 1725died 1769 marsh surry ,north caroline u s a ,any help please, thank you so much for any help you give me, yvonne,


patchem Report 21 Apr 2013 16:33

How did you get to John Stringer?
Which of his descendants are you related to - or what connection to get to him?

If Ann Hawley was born about 1679 it is unlikely that she married in 1692 at age 13.

Who died in Burgh la marsh and who died in marsh surry, north carolina?
I think someone has been making incorrect assumptions to get the marsh near Skegness mixed up with the marsh in America.


patchem Report 23 Apr 2013 17:58

I do not understand what you mean by 'no reply' and 'comes up zero'.

How did you get back to John Stringer - who was his son or grandson or great-grandson or other relative that you know you are related to?
