Thank you for posting this. I have been wondering about these Becks for quite some time, but I didn't really know where to look for them. Thomas Beck, born 1845, son of Henry and Dinah, was married to Mary Wiley Giles. She was born on Sound Island, 11 Dec 1844, eighth of James Giles and Mary Ann Wiley's 11 children. Mary Wiley Giles married Thomas Beck 24 November 1865, and they had six kids, all born on Sound Island:

William Henry Beck, b Aug 1866 married his cousin Tryphena Eliza Giles (daughter of Thomas & Elizabeth Giles. Tryphnena's father was the older brother of William's mother). William and Tryphena had three children that I know of: Minnie, b Jan 1888 (probably died very young); Ernest, b Feb 1890; and Minnie Evelyn, b Nov 1891.

James Giles Beck, b Jun 1868, (named for his mother's father) married Martha Hannah Collins, daughter of Samuel Collins and Ann Whittle. James and Martha had at least two children: John Wilfred, 1889; and Jessie, 1891.

Jesse Beck, born May 1870, married Evangeline Bailey 28 November 1891 Sound Island. I don't know if they had any children.

Archibald Beck, born February 1872.

There were two more children whose names I don't know, but who were born between the end of 1873 and the start of 1877. Some of the register pages for the years 1874-1876 are lost, so that there are some children listed whose parents are not known, and some parents whose children were baptised, but the children's names are lost. The Beck children are in this latter group.

If Thomas Beck (b 1845) was married to an Elizabeth who died in 1907, possibly Mary Giles died quite young? Or maybe I have the wrong Thomas Beck. I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts. Tryphena Giles (m. Wm Henry Beck) was the older sister of John Joseph Giles, who was my husband's g-g-grandfather.
