John SOUTHAM born circa 1779 in Northants

Journal by southam

Looking for the parents of John Southam who was born in 1779/1781 who married Sarah Garratt at Bow Brickhill in 1811. They lived there and had the first two children and then the remaining children were born in Syresham. The child i am descended from was called Emmanuel Southam which was quite a different name in our family.

If anyone can help I would be really grateful as we are going round in circles trying to find his parents.

Hi Lindsay

Yes it is the same family. John Southam is causing problems for a lot of people, we have struggled to find him. I have got the marriage lines where he married Sarah Garratt in Bow Brickhill which a lady in Bucks kindly got for me. I visited Evenly recently, what a fabulous place.

Which son of Emmanuel are you descended from then I can perhaps fill in gaps for you.

Hi Lindsay

Apologies, i have not done anything on my family tree since i last emailed, last year was a bit hectic with new grandchild, weddings, new job etc. My aunt and i usually try and come down to buck/northants looking at family places but she was unwell so didnt manage to get down. Hope to come over this year.

Did yuo have any luck with John Southam? I am beginning to wonder if he existed!!!
Have a great new year.
