Halsey/elsey 1731
Richard and Mary Elsey, subsequently identified in the cathedral baptismal and burial registers as Halsey, parents at the baptism of their daughter Sarah at Canterbury Cathedral in July 1731. No firm evidence has, however, come to light giving the date and/or location of their marriage. I would welcome any advice or details which could assist in identifying their origins and their marriage. Richard was servant to Dr Wake, Canon of the Cathedral in the 1730s, and then became Greenkeeper and Watchman for the Cathedral Precincts until he died in 1761 when he was buried in "the Cloyster Yard". Descendants of Richard and Mary continued to live in Canterbury at least until the 1850s and probably later. I have of lot of information and detail about the Halsey family of Canterbury over these 120/130 years.
