John Walker

Post by Marcus Rush » Sat May 10, 2014 9:31 pm

The above mentioned John Walker was born in 1806 and is the eldest child of Francis Walker and Lois Fenby. What I am trying to establish is the following......

-John married a Botham in 1828.....On November 16, 1828 there is a marriage for John Walker to Elizabeth Botham in Huggate. On November 25, 1828 there is a marriage for John Walker to Ellen Botham in Kirkburn. As the Walkers moved within the area either one could be the correct one.

Hoping to find someone on this site that can confirm the same.

Thanks...Marcus

Hi Marcus.
I have 9 children recorded from the Parish records as being baptised in Watton to John & Eleanor Walker between 1831 and 1851 and another who's place of baptism I have not found. Watton is only 3 or 4 miles from Kirkburn, where they were married. You may see Tibthorpe mentioned, which is only a mile or 2 from Kirkburn. We cycle around the area regularly.
The Watton, Kirkburn and Tibthorpe families appear to be descended from John Walker (1750) and Ann Dorser and also Francis Walker (1760) and Ann Jefferson whereas many of the Hutton Cranswick families descended from Bryan (1757) and Mary Newbord, though some of their descendants did appear to go to Watton and even further, such as Hopkins, Allegan County, USA.
Hope that helps.
Judith

Hi Judith.....

Thanks for the clarification regarding the Botham marriage to John Walker and sorry for the delay in responding. We have been in the US and just returned.

Hi Marcus

In my tree I have Eleanor Botham ( 1809 ) married to John Walker ( 1806 ) on the 25 Nov 1828 in Kirkburn . At present I am unsure who the parents of John are . Penciled in below are two families I have narrowed him down to .

Francis Walker 1760 - 1842 born Hutton Cranswick , married Ann Jefferson 1766 - 1852 born Kirkburn and married 12 June 1787 at Kirkburn .

Francis Walker 1783 - 1854 born Watton , married Lois Fenby 1782 - 1864 christened at Burton Agnes and married 2 May 1805 at Huggate .

To add further confusion , also in the family is John,s brother William , who also married a Botham , Ann ( 1820 ) who is Eleanor,s cousin .

I don,t know if this helps you at all but it would help me if you could confirm who,s John,s parents are ,

Thanks

David Botham

Hi David
Taken from the parish records of Watton (PE66/3), I have a John Walker baptised on 13 April 1806 with parents Francis & Lois Walker.
I have John's brother William married to Ann of Tibthorpe, but have no surname for her.
Hope the above details of John helps with your research.
Regards, Judith
