I seem to have hit a big brick wall with my Perkins.
They don't seem to fit in with any of the Hillmorton families and I can't get back furthur with Henry.
Any help would be much appreciated. I have:
Henry Perkins & Elizabeth
I Have not found a baptism for Henry or a marriage record for them.
- Thomas Perkins b. 1671/2 Hillmorton
- Henry perkins b. 1675 Hillmorton
- Frauncis b. 1678 Hillmorton
They may have had more children I guess.
Thomas married Susannah
Again I have not located a marriage record, the only suitable one on the IGI is for a Susannah Gude in leicestershire. But I have no way of knowing if this is correct.
Thomas & Susanah had:
- Alice b. 1695/6 Hillmorton
- William b. 1698 Hillmorton
- Isaac b. 1700 Hillmorton
- Sarah b. 1702 Hillmorton
Again they may possibly have had more.
Isaac appears to have moved to Rugby at some point
He married Ursola Robinson 1731 in Rugby. Ursola was b. 1709 Rugby St Andrews. Her parents were Henry Robinson b. ? ; died 1730/31 Rugby and Elizabeth ? born? died 1745 Rugby.
isaac and Ursola had:
- Horokins b? d. 1733 Rugby
- William b. 1732 Rugby d. 1733 Rugby
- Mary b. 1734 Rugby d. 1734/5 Rugby
- Thomas b. 1735 Rugby. d. 1805 Coventry
- Alice b. 1742 Rugby. d. aft 1805
- Elizabeth b. 1745 Rugby. d. 1825 Bilton
- Isaac b. 1747/8 Rugby d. 1747/8 Rugby
- Francis b. 1747/8 Rugby. d. 1747/8 Rugby
- William b. 1748/9 Rugby
Elizabeth 1745 - 1825 is my direct ancestor. She married John Flavel (1755 - 1834). They had 5 children together. John was the founder of the Flavel company which he set up in Bilton and then moved to larger premises in Coventry. His son William invented the famous Kitchener stove and took over the buisness, expanding it. Under his management the buisness moved to Leamington Priors.
Alice b. 1742 is mentiond in her brother Thomas's will so she is still alive in 1805. thats all I know of her.
Thomas Perkins (1735 - 1805) had apparantly one of the largest wholesale Ironmonger buisness's in the midland counties, he was also a general hardware merchant. This was located in Coventry.
He took his sister Elizabeth's son, William Flavel as an apprentice and left him much in his will. There is also a nephew, Henry, mentioned although I have yet to work out his parents.
I know no more of William b. 1748/9
If any one has any info regarding the above esp. the earlier Perkins's I would love to hear from you.
Any help at this point would be much appreciated!!
