red mail John and Hannah Cornock
John and Hannah Cornock lived in Bodicote from about 1817 until John's death in 1869. He was a dyer and later was also the village's sub-postmaster and a shopkeeper. I wonder if anyone can help with one or two questions that I have about these family members of mine. There were six children: Hannah (b. 1818), Elizabeth (b.1820), Martha (b.1826), John Capel (b.1832), Mary (b.1834 d.1836) and William Burden (b. 1838). 1. Can anyone find Hannah in 1861 or 1871; Elizabeth in 1881; Martha in 1861, 1871 or 1901; John Capel in 1851, 1861 or 1881. 2. John Cornock is listed on the electoral roll as a copyholder of his house and malt-house. Does anyone know where the malt-house was in Bodicote? 3. I am fascinated by the baptism records for the children. All five surviving were baptised in 1845; the boys in May and the girls in August. John Cornock had been brought up as a Dissenter - did the family join the Church of England? Why might this be - given that the 'children' were mostly adults? Was Hannah Cornock also from a Dissenting background - her maiden name was Capel and she was born in Banbury in 1795. I'm sorry there are so many questions - but if there are any answers I would love to have them! Chris
