red mail Berry Jordan & Cherrill Families
I have now confirmed my family details as far as I can in Dorchester. Berry - Edward berry bn 1761 died 6 Jun 1822 - Joseph Berry bn 9 Aug 1795 died 27 Aug 1873 - John Berry bn 3 Feb 1833 died 4 Sept 1892. John Berry married Hannah Jordan - Parents Thomas Jordan bn 3 Sept 1806 Margaret Cherrill bn 3 Feb 1811. I hold further details on the Cherrills and Jordans but if anybody knows any details of the origins of Edward Berry as I have drawn a blank it would be appreciated. The Berry DNA project points towards connections in Hanborough Oxfordhsire, but I cant find Edward in the records there.
JORDAN/BALLING look-up plse
If anyone has access to the Berkshire marriage index, would it be possible to look up whether an Ann Jordan born November 1789 in Dorchester Oxon married some on called Balling or Balting. There is an Ann Balling or Balting of Beaconsfield shown as witness to Rose Jordan's death in February 1842. Rose would have been Ann's mother. Very many thanks.
My paternal ancestors are the JORDAN family from DORCHESTER. Later one branch of the family moved to ABINGDON and others moved to ESHER, Surrey and TWICKENHAM, Middx, ending up in BATTERSEA, London. The Cherrills and Hills were linked to the Jordans by marriage. Many of the Jordans were wheelwrights although 2 were landlords of the Dorchester 'George Inn'. Any information on the Jordans greatfully received but in particular, were there Jordan's in Dorchester after 1933? and Thomas Jordan born abt 1756 died in 1842 married to Rose Strange of Long Whittenham. Thomas seem to be the first Jordan in Dorchester. He's there in 1781 when he married - 1841 census shows him as born 'out of county'. Any ideas as to an event or anything that may give a clue to where he came from or why he ended up in Dorchester? Many thanks.
