John Parry (Parish Records)

by Jefff @, West London, Middlesex, Saturday, April 16, 2016, 19:51 (1334 days ago) @ goldenfox

John Parry was baptized at Longhope on 15 Jan. 1796 to Parents Thomas Parry (1773-1836) and Mary Morse. He was a WIDOWER and age 56 when he married Sarah Sterrey at Longhope on 11 Nov. 1851. In the 1841 Census he is listed age 40 and a Farmer at Longhope, also listed are John age 15, Thomas also age 15, Mary age 14,Nathaniel 12, Charlie 10, and Joseph age 8. Interestingly Sarah Sterrey is also listed age 25. I am having no success in tracing his first wife and any possible issue, I would appreciate any help or pointing me in the right direction.

Good evening G,

Searching Ancestry for Nathaniel (as it seems a rarer name than t'others) gave this result which seems a pretty good fit, could it be yours ?

---------------------------------

Searching the Glos Archives Genealogical Database appears to be worthwhile for the Parrys, eg they have a Will for a John Parry, Yeoman of Longhope, 1749.

Searching Lydia Harper's birth is proving difficult, cannot find in the FoD PRs.

Ancestry suggests this possible baptism which seems feasible, no alternatives offered;

I'm afraid I cannot offer anything at all re Nancy, having checked all the aforementioned resources, sorry.
