"Hello Kim Smith, Re: your post concerning Susanna, I am a bit confused by your dates. If she was supposed to be born 1748 that is a possibility. My cousin Linda has combed the PRs for me and this is not recorded there (or at Chacombe where Elizabeth…"

"Cara, this almost certainly refers to Daniel Bateman Douglas, born CW 1786 F= William, a baker M= Sarah Douglas nee Bateman. Daniel farmed 200  acres in CW and owned the Griffin Inn in 1851. He died in 1855."

"Sorry Cara, recent research reveals that Susannah Douglas b.1741 CW, married in 1770 John Jarvis of Greatworth. They had 2 children, James and Mary."

"I think this article refers to Daniel Bateman Douglas, b.1786 of The Griffin Inn, Chipping Warden. He was coincidentally married to an Elizabeth. In 1851 He farmed 200 acres and had sons John b 1826 and William b,1828, plus a servant Mary…"

"Hi Nigel Sorry for my late reply. I agree there are variants of the surname, but thats what happened - they spelt it how it sounded.  I havent really got much further, but Joseph Douglas born c1804 married Mary Martin in 1823, Wootton, though I…"

Nigel Douglas replied to Susan Morrell's discussion Northamptonshire Douglas(s)
"Gary, in your earlier post you say you have a trail back to George d.1801, so presume you are looking to go back further. My search in Ch. W ends in 1763. George & Ann had a son George, bapt. 24.12.1727, who could have moved to Culworth, but I…"

Gary Douglas replied to Susan Morrell's discussion Northamptonshire Douglas(s)
"Hi Nigel. As you can see from my post 'my' Douglas's trail goes cold with George in Culworth. The family that yourself and Cara are discussing (the one including Susanna) also have a George listed as third son, born 1827 in CW. Just…"

"Cara, This is a rather tenuous link, but I have found Susannah Douglas, born 1741, Chipping Warden. She was the daughter of George (1751 - 1758?) a grazier and Ann. She was one of 8 children, although she does not appear in marriage or burial…"

Susan,   I've found a court case involving an assault on Joseph, naming brother John of Northampton,  and son Neal.   John and wife Sarah are in the census for 1841,51,61, then  only John in  71.  Please write me at bhhdesigns@yahoo.com for details.  Betsey

Susan, I think I have found the birth for the first Joseph you have record of in Wootton.  He was buried Jan 31 1841 in Wootton at age 37.   That means he was probably born  bit later than 1800 - perhaps 1803/4.  The 1841 census gives Hardingstone as the enumeration district and Mary, b 1801 (presumably his widow)has children Samuel, Neale, Frances, George, John, Ephraim and Elizabeth.  I haven't been able to connect him to earlier Douglases yet.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
