John and Hannah Hall of Gorsley, Parish of Newent (General)

by sidtoomey01 @, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, Thursday, January 24, 2019, 05:45 (55 days ago)

I am researching the above family and am interested in any information on them . Apart from a period living in Linton (taken from 1871 & 1861 Census they appear to have lived in Newent Parish and more specifically Gorsley.
I believe they had at least the following children :-
Ann....Baptised 6th Jan. 1808.
Oliver....Baptised 26th Dec.1810.
Elizabeth....Baptised 3rd June 1814.
Caroline....Baptised 21st Feb. 1817
Johnathan Wood.....Baptised 29th Dec.1819.
Elizabeth....Baptised 24th August. 1824..

I tried to look at previous posts but am not very experienced in searching them accurately. When i Tried John Hall I came up with more than 1000 posts.
There must be a more accurate method to looking at previous posts. Can anyone give me suggestions on how to search previous posts ?

Thank you in advance

If you enclose John Hall in quotation marks, so "John Hall", then the search engine will only search for that specific phrase. You then get just 32 results.

I can track only one Hannah HALL with a daughter, Elizabeth, who was born c1824.

GR 1851 Census, Linton, Upper Gorsley,

Hannah HALL. Head, Wid, 66, Labourer, born Gloster, Newent
Elizabeth, Daur, Un, 26, Pauper, Gloster, Newent
George OWENS, Lodger, Un, 40, Clock Cleaner, Somerset, North Petherton

These entries, from places in the immediate neighbourhood, are possibly related :-

Ancestry,

Baptised August 24, 1824 at Newent
Elizabeth, daughter of John and Hannah HALL
Privately baptised.

Married December 26, 1800 at Oxenhall
John HALL and Hannah PODLINGHAM
Witnesses John PEDLINGHAM and Mary WILLIAMS

Baptised September 23, 1781 at Newent
Hannah, daughter of John and Elizabeth PEDLINGHAM

Buried August 30, 1832 at Oxenhall
John HALL aged 57. Abode, Newent (=1775)

Baptised November 8, 1775 at Dymock
John, Son of Philip and Ann HALL

John HALL is a fairly common name and there are others in the 1851 census and later. The principal one is John HALL, schoolteacher and Baptist Minister of Gorsley, who was born in Shropshire c1806 and came to Gorsley in January 1831. He was responsible for the building of three Baptist Chapels in the area.

I've had similar problems to you Mike, altho I've been using FamilySearch to search the census'.
I also think the Oxenhall marriage is relevant, the PR for that and some of the other events Sid listed are within this FoD site's database.

It doesn't help us that there were a lot ! of John Halls in the general Gorsley/Newent/Kempley area, as shown by the PRs etc.

Sid,
I searched the forum's prior threads for "John Hall" Gorsley, this seems relevant ? (Also did this for Newent, Kempley, etc, but no more luck there).

Searching the BNA for "Kempley Chapel" gave more articles suggesting another Chapel might be added to the list;

"Anniversary Services of the Baptist Chapel, Kempley on Sunday.... Sermon by Mr Thos Nicholson of Gloucester..... On Monday addresses by Rev John Hall of Gorsley(who presided), Rev George Howe of Ross, Rev H. Phillips, of Longhope, Mr Nicholson and Mr W Pontiflex."

I've also had a quick look at the Glos Archives Genealogical aka "non conformers" database in the hope of finding the elusive Hall family, but no luck, sorry Sid.
