red mail Charles Peacock born 1815
Searching for a Charles Peacock born circa 1815 in Thakeham. Got written down 2 spouses possible. Mary Ann Dilloway born 1818 in Fernhurst. They have one child, Thomas Peacock in 1849. Mary and Thomas then seem to disappear and Charles appears to be married to a Harriet E. They have William, Luke and Harry Peacock. I am fairly sure Mary Ann is correct as Thomas is a direct ancestor, but am trying to work out what happened to Mary Ann Dilloway/Peacock as not sure if she died in childbirth etc, and if she did, what happened to Thomas? Can anyone help me please?
red mail James Taylor, born Thakeham circa 1807.
I cannot find details of this James Taylor's early life other than his birthplace given as Thakeham, Sussex England on the 1851 and 1861 censuses of Coundon, Co. Durham and Spennymoor/Whitworth, Co. Durham respectively.On both these records his occupation is 'Innkeeper'. By 1861 he is innkeeper of the Bridge Inn, 1 High Street, Whitworth, Co. Durham, living with his wife, Catherine, daughters Mary and Emily, sons James and John, and three male lodgers. It seems he and his wife had an elder son, William, who was born at Dysart,Fifeshire, Scotland circa 1837/38. The daughters were born in Newcastle Upon Tyne and the two youngest sons at Coundon, Co. Durham. James Taylor's family continued occupying the Bridge Inn until some time after 1891 and moved before the 1901 census. Has anyone found any references to Taylor families at Thakeham or its surrounding area please? Particularly during the early/mid 1800's . Thank you
