Mary Arnot married to William Haxton of Scotland

Mary Arnot was married to William Haxton.
Their daughter Jean was born in Kinghorn, Fife and married in 1811, so I am estimating Mary's birth year to be anywhere from 1775 backwards.

I am looking specifically for info on Mary, but if anyone has any info on the Arnot name in Fife I would appreciate any help.

Many thanks,

Robert Withers, Cambridge early 1800's

I am looking for birth records for my ancestor Robert Withers.

He was married twice, his 2nd wife was my ancestor, Ann Hillam. They lived in Wimpole, Cambridge where he was the land agent for Wimpole Hall from 1815-1837. They had five children: Ann, Charles Robert, Henry Alfred, Edmund, and Arthur. Robert also had a daughter, Sarah Rebecca Withers from his first marriage, whose mother apparently died in childbirth.

He is listed on his marriage certificate as being from Orwell, Cambridgeshire, but I have been unable to find any record of his birth so far.

Any information on any Withers from this era would be greatly appreciated!

Tyler, Somerset 1600's

I am looking for any connections to the Tyler family in Somerset in the 1600's. My ancestor Elianor Tyler was born around 1645.

Eleanor (or Elianor) married Thomas Yendall in Clatworthy, SOM, in 1667. The marriage registry notes that Elianor was originally from Fitzhead, Somerset. Looking at the Fitzhead parish records online has so far not brought any new evidence to light as many entries are unreadable.

I don't have any more information about her family.

Anyone researching the Tyler family from this period?

Please get in touch if you are!

Yendall family, Clatworthy Somerset 1600's

My ancestor Elisabeth Yendall b. 1679 in Clatworthy, Somerset, married John Huish on Jun 10 1702.

Her parents were Thomas Yendall and Elianor Tyler.

Thomas Yendall was born 06 Dec 1645 in Clatworthy, SOM; married Elianor Tyler on May 12 1667 in Clatworthy, and died there in 1674.

His parents were John Yendall b. approx 1615 and Mary (surname unknown).

John`s exact birthdate is unknown, but I have presumed his death to be around 1665 from a burial entry in the St Mary Magdalene, Clatworthy Parish Records for 20 Aug 1665: John Yendall (a senior) Also, the only relevant marriage record I can find for John Yendall is to Agnes Way on 05 May 1637. I don`t know yet whether this is the same John and if this was his first wife or whether the name Mary was misread in Parish transcripts...

If anyone has any connections to this branch of the family or any more information please contact me. You can also see my family tree at

Many thanks and good luck with your research!

Croft family of Somerset 1700's

I am looking for birth information on Elizabeth Sarah Croft as well as info on her parents.

She married Robert Webber in Walworth, Somerset on Feb 25 1795 (it is possible that the date may have been Feb 26th), but as yet I have been unable to find any baptism information for her.

Eliza Cloak from Rame, Cornwall late 1700's

I am looking for any details about Eliza/Elizabeth Cloak, who married Richard White in Rame, Cornwall on July 29 1818. She is shown in the censuses to have had at least three children, Elizabeth (my ancestor), Grace, & Richard.

I contacted the online parish clerk for Rame who was extremely helpful, but unfortunately didn't have any baptism information for an Elizabeth Cloak in that parish. I have estimated her birth year to be somewhere around 1796.

Please do contact me if you know of any connection or information regarding this branch of the family.

Many thanks!

Birth details of Robert Hooper 1770's, Cornwall

I have been able to trace back now as far as Robert Hooper, who married Catherine Ley on Aug 20 1798, in St Cleer Cornwall.

In the parish marriage record he is listed as a blacksmith originally from Calstock, but as yet i am unsure whether that is his place of birth or just where he was living prior to marriage.

The parish records for St Cleer are available online for free at:
