red mail Duncombe/King
I am searching for anything about the Duncombes, especially William Duncombe, born around 1783, who was the father of my great, great grandfather, Joseph who married Sarah King in 1851. I think William's wife was Ann, but am not sure.
red mail Turney/Seer(Sear)
I am trying to find any relatives of Richard Turney (b 1789) who married Catherine Seer/Sear (b1793)- they married on 12.10.1814 in Leighton Buzzard, but appear to have lived in Heath and Reach. I cannot find any death records for either. Their children were Sarah, James, George, William, Thomas and Catherine. Thomas married Ann Woolhead and lived in Heath and Reach. George was born blind and lived in the Blind Asylum in Liverpool until Thomas married and then lived with his family.
red mail Thomas and Katherine Bates of Heath
Before Heath was separate from Leighton Buzzard, my ancestor Thomas Bates was married in 1748 to a widow, Katherine Munday, whose husband John had died in 1746. Both of these families in the Leighton Buzzard parish records were "of Heath". Thomas and Katherine had a daughter Elizabeth in 1750 and Thomas died in 1755. Then Katherine married Joseph Pemington or Pennington in 1758. Her daughter Elizabeth Bates married Richard Tavener in Eaton Bray in 1770 and Katherine died in Eaton Bray in 1773 and was buried as Catherine Pemberton. Would like to find Katherine's first marriage for her maiden name and identify Thomas Bates. I suspect he is from Ivinghoe, but it is just a guess. Katherine had at least two Munday children in 1740 & 1742.
Hedges and Sear/ Hedges and Durrant
I am looking for descendants of George Hedges (B1862 at H&R)and Louisa Sear (B1863 at H&R). Their children were William (B1882) Lillian (B1884) Sarah (B1886) Arthur (B1885) George (B1892) Ernest (B1894) Effie (B1898) Alvin (B1900). William married Ethel Maud Durrant in 1907 in Leighton Buzzard. Their children were Leslie (B1908) Stanley (B1909) Ethel, Reginald and I think Albert. No death dates known for any other than Arthur and Leslie who both died in Australia. All others died in UK.
red mail James H Lune at Carlton Lodge
James H Lune was my great great grandfather. Born in Erdington, B'ham in 1855, he later moved to Heath and Reach in the early 1900's (I don't know the exact date) and lived at Carlton Lodge with his wife Elizabeth (also with I think son Charles and daughter Charlotte) until his death there in November 1919. Would like to hear from anyone with information relating to the Lune family or Carlton Lodge itself.
Hedges Or Bull Families
Looking for any info on HEDGES or BULL families in Heath and Reach. My family emigrated to Australia in 1860's but I am interested in any relations who stayed.
