Walter MEEK /John + Francis MEEK (Parish Records)

Thanks for this summary. It does help but is not definitive. I had seen the wills and it's interesting to establish this particular family line. I had been inclined to discount this descent for my Joseph because his sons were coal miners of limited means. The wills you mention would indicated that Joseph himself was a coal miner. Does this imply some kind of ownership or share in a coal mining venture? Or as I had originally assumed, just a coal mining labourer.

We do deal in probabilities for earlier events and on balance I'm inclined to accept the descent from Francis then John & Elizabeth down to my Joseph - at least for the time being. Perhaps further information will emerge to get rid of other candidates.

Thanks very much,
