red mail John Del(a)force (1710 - 1785) Married with Elizabeth
Hi there, have received great help already by a user on this particular genealogy, and was just hoping to reach out to any people who may have more details on this line- already know that the Del(a)forces are well researched, so with any luck someone knows how these ones slot in to the overall picture. John Del(a)force (1710 - 1785) Married with Elizabeth (although possibly Elisabeth, depending upon the record). John died May 1785 in Spit. London. Buried May 22, 1785. His son was James Delaforce (May 5, 1734-October 12, 1788). He married Elizabeth Harris on April 22, 1753. Their children were: James Delforce 17531835 Ann Delforce 17551756 Mary Delaforce 17581861 Elizabeth Delaforce 17601823 Jonathan Delforce 17611825 Charles Delforce 1765 Unknown Not sure whether the sudden Delforce/ Delaforce name change is through mistranscription, relatives turning against eachother, or wanting to keep businesses separate (in one branch some went into wine whilst others went into markets selling meats and things like that). Nevertheless, does anyone know anything more about these people, Elizabeth who married Johns maiden name, and anything more historical in the genealogy? Thankyou!
red mail Hubbard, Samuel married with Delaforce, Eliz. had child Maria
Hi Samuel possibly married Delaforce, Elizabeth, although this is uncertain currently; he had a child Maria who was 1792-1865, and who died at the institution in Hanwell, seemingly. The name Maria is quite interesting as you would expect either Mary or Marie so wondering now whether Delaforce is correct, given that a Hubbard, Samuel, did marry a Manteca in London around the correct time. Any details on who Samuel's parents were, whether Delaforce was accurate, or why Maria was admitted to Hanwell would be great thankyou.
red mail Hubbard, Maria married with Marlow, William.
Hi there, was hoping you could help with these people. Maria and William lived in Spit. London, England, and their daughter Elizabeth Maria Marlow married a hatter, Louis Lecand Harwood. Louis' parents were Harwood, Joseph and Le Cand, Charlotte. Can anyone assist with Maria and William, please? Maria's dad was possibly Samuel and the mother a woman with the surname Icke but this is not certain as the only matching person grew up in Leicestershire which doesn't make sense, as why a woman would relocate in that era is uncertain as only men would have been able ti have a career which would require relocation.
red mail Isard/ Izzard/ Yzat/ Easard, Sara married with Le Cand, Daniel 17451809.
Hello! Sara and Daniel were in Spitalfields where they had 11 children baptised at Artillery, which seems to have been a Huguenot chapel near the artillery lane in London. Sara's surname has various spellings in the baptismal records, which can be Yzat, Izzard, Isard, Easard, etc the most likely of which is Isard and the least likely to be correct is Yzat. Despite having located all the baptism records, marriage doesn't come up in 'search' so does anyone have any advice as to where to look to get the marriage details please? Daniel was buried in January 1809.
red mail LE CAND, Charlotte, the dau of Daniel Le Cand and Sara- married HARWOOD Joseph.
Hi guys, actually managed to break through the wall of my great great grandmother, Sarah, with the assistance of people here. Now looking for her ancestor Charlotte Le Cand who's Baptism was 06 Apr 1777  The Artillery-French Huguenot,Spitalfields,London,England 1 Source Charlotte's baptismal records list Daniel Le Cand and Sara as her parents. Charlotte married Mr Joseph Harwood, and their son Louis LeCand Harwood would marry Elizabeth Maria Marlow, the dau of Mr William Marlow/e and they would have a son John Henry Lecan Harwood who would marry Sarah Ann Ditzpatrick and then after her death in December 1886 (or that quarter) would marry again to Alice Emily Hopping. With Sarah, John would have a daughter Sarah 1880-1953 who would marry Louis John Carter September 1903 in St Luke's Hackney. They would have a daughter Violet Dora Carter 16 DECEMBER 1905 - 31 December 1985. That was my great grandmother Any help with Charlotte Le Cand, especially with identifying her mother 'Sara' would rather obviously be much appreciated thank you.
red mail Waldron/Brown

red mail Family of Louis (Lewis) Harris & Esther Cohen
I'm researching the family history of Louis or Lewis Harris, who was born in Spitalfields in 1812. His father was Lazarus (Eliezer) Harris, a watch maker and privileged member of the Great Synagogue. He married Esther Cohen, daughter of Benjamin Woolf Cohen of Aldgate in 1833. The family lived in Spitalfields and St. Mary's Whitechapel until 1851. After emigrating to New York City in 1852/3, Lewis and several of his sons went into the cigar making business. I'd love to hear from anyone who might be related to these members of the Harris (or Cohen) families.
red mail Dubock
Looking for Dubock descendants. Spitalfields, Tower Hamlets. My great great great grandmother Susannah Dubock was born 1792 to Edward Dubock and his wife Sarah Briggs, married 1792. Children baptised: 1792 Susanna 1797 Edward 1799 Sarah 1801 Thomas 1802 Ann 1804 James 1806 Elizabeth 1809 Sarah 1811 Louisa 1813 William Francis 1815 Angela (f) 1817 Sophia IN 1815 Susannah married William Horatio Brown and ended up in Van Dieman's Land where she had 8 children. Married John Stenner 1844, died aged 80 At her parents wedding in 1892 a George Dubock was a witness in the register. It is assumed he was related- possibly father, or brother or half brother. Edward Dubock died 1840 aged 67 (ie born 1773) Other parish register entries, the "hard" evidence" are: 1. the marriage register entry for George Dubock to Jane Jones in 1771 shows George as a "widower" and his wife as a "widow" 2. the marriage register entry for George Dubock to Sarah Chippen in 1774 shows that George to be a bachelor. Other register entries are: 1. 1719 Daniel Du Boc and Marie De La Mare baptised a George Du Boc. (Threadneedle St) 2. 1746 a George Dubock married at Lydia Tin in a non conformist church. 3. 1753 George and Lydia baptised a George Dubock; 4. 1763 Lydia Dubock was baptised to George and Lydia Dubock 5. 1764 Lydia Dubock died. Departing from the hard evidence, the rest is reconstruction/ conjecture/ and at times guesswork. One such postulate is that Edward Dubock, born 1772, was a son of the second marriage of his father George Dubock to Jane Jones in 1771, and that the George Dubock who married Sarah Chippen in 1774 as a "bachelor" was born 1753 to his father and his first wife Lydia. If anyone has any more hard evidence to add, it would be much appreciated. The surname "Tin" appears, in the context of the 18th century to be of French Hugeonot origin, and originating mainly from Burgundy. Daniel Du Boc who married Marie Delamere (De La mere) in 1715 at Threadneedle St, and baptised son George in 1719, looks to be the son of Daniel Du Boc and Marie Couille. This Daniel Du Boc could well be the Daniel Du Bosc born 1668 to Daniel Du Bosc and his wife Judith Letellier in Gruchet St Simeon, Haute Normandie. The father Daniel Du Bosc may be the son of Daniel Du Bosc and Esther Pulain, born 1638 at Le Bucquet. Delameres also came from this area, attended the same Huguenot temple in Luneray, from which there appeared to have been a mass migration of the congregation close to 1680, as persecution worsened.
red mail Mary Hill

red mail John Hill
I am searching for John and Mary Hill, parents of Mary Hill born in Spitalfieds on 2 October 1825. John is listed as a Dyer on the marriage certificate of Mary Hill and William Hensher in 1846. The address on the marriage certificate for Mary was 14 Fullerton Street, Bethnal Green. William's address was 3 Busby Street, Bethnal Green. William's father was a Cook. The witnesses of the marriage were S Manchee and Henrietta Amelia 'Gee'? There are so many Johns and Marys in the records that it is hard to decide who are the parents! Any information would be appreciated.

Hello, 1861 census family: Danial R. Ward 51, son William 17, Son Frederick 14, dauther Sarah, 12, daughter Eliza 10, Spitalfields, Christ Church, London.

red mail eliza Ward born Bunhill Fields circa 1851-53
I am searching for relatives of Eliza Ward who was my grandfather's mother born in Saint Luke's parish Bunhill fields, London circa 1851-53. Grandfather's name was Edward Bingham, born Feb 4, 1876 in Clerkenwell workhouse. His father's name was James Bingham. I can find no evidence of any marriage. I was able to discover Eliza (using the name Elizabeth Bingham on the 1901 census living on Rupert Rd in Upper Holloway). I know this to be his mother because of military records when Edward joined the army and listed her as Elizabeth Bingham living at that address on Rupert Rd in Uooer Holloway. Could Eliza'a Mother have been Sarah? Helo anyone. Thanks Shirley

red mail Are there 2 Rev. Nathaniel Salters?!
My husbands ancestor Sarah Salter was born on 25 Jul 1806 and baptised at ChristChurch,Spitalfields. On that baptism record it lists her parents as Nathaniel Salter and Elizabeth Adams. The only record of these people I can find is a marriage between the Rev. Nathaniel Salter and Elizabeth Adams on 16 Oct 1787 at St.Dionis,Backchurch,London. After asking for some help on the background of the Rev.Nataniel Salter I received lots of information that suggested he went to Cambridge and was a curate in East Donyland,Essex and then Suffolk. Except this person seems to have died in 1801.SO..are there possibly 2 Rev.Nathaniel Salters and one of them dies later than 1806 or are there 2 sets of Nathaniel Salter and Elizabeth Adams- both seem unlikely but if the records state he died in 1801 then he can't be the father of Sarah Salter. Can anybody shed any light on this discrepency??

I believe John was an apothecary/surgeon. A couple of generations later an Eliza Macord married someone called *Walford*, first name unknown, a surgeon, possibly the grandchild of John and Margaret, in about 1835; they were therefore probably at least second cousins.

The certificate shows them both living at 53 Gun Street Spitalfields. Prior to this marriage John and Hannah had a daughter. Her birth certificate (Registration District: Whitechapel 1847 birth in the Sub-district of Spitalfields in the County of Middlesex) shows she was born on Thirteenth October 1847 at 9 Fashion Street Christ Church.
