Hello again Tony,
I have not had much luck in tracking down the parents of Mary Parslow so far. There were a large number of Parslow's in the Kingston, Surrey area in the 19th century. However, my cousin has sent me a very poor copy of her marriage certificate and her father's name looks like William. There was a William Parslow who married a Maria who could possibly be the correct one, but I have to go to Richmond to get a copy of her birth certificate. Will do that soon and let you know the outcome. Please let me know if you find anymore clues.

Hello, Carole!
My paternal grandmother's maiden name was Parslow. She came to the United States from England, probably in the late 1800's.
She married Jonathan Beede Wiggin. One of his sons, Gilbert Henry Wiggin, was my dad.
I had a half-brother named Edwin Parslow Wiggin. He and his brother, John, called their grandmother "Gogie."
This sounds, I know, like looking for a needle in a haystack!
I am the only survivor of the above named. I have four daughters,
and would like to make some links for them, as well as for myself.
Thanks for any information you might be able to provide.
Alice

Dear Alice
I would love to help if I can in tracing your grandmother's family. There were quite a few Parslow's in Kingston, Surrey where my Gt Grandmother Mary lived. I am still trying to trace my branch of the family but will happily share any info I get with you, but I do at least need her Christian name and a rough idea of her age. Please let me have any further info you have.

Dear Carole,
In an account of my early childhood, a family friend wrote that Gogie's real name was Alice. It is further stated that she came to the United States at about the age of three and traveled with her parents in a covered wagon. No dates are specified in this account.
I have a family Bible that was printed in Liverpool in 1806. The only inscription reads:"William Lawrence Parslow Slymbridge, Gloucestershire, England"
Again, this is not much to go on, but I will keep looking.
Thanks so much,
Alice

Hello Carole, my family are the Parslows from Kingston. Mary was a popular name with all generations of Kingston Parslows.
I have about 6 Mary's dating from 1796.

Thanks for your message re the Kingston Parslows. The only information I have definitely is that my Gt Grandfather John White (born 1849, Clophill, Beds) married Mary Parslow on 5 Feb 1870 at Norbiton church, Norbiton, Surrey. She was born in 1850 at Hampton Wick (or Feltham) and her father is listed on the marriage certificate as William (a painter). I think he may have possibly been William born 1821 and married to Maria born 1823 but I have no proof of this yet. In the 1901 census they were both still alive and living at 11 Vicarage Road, Kingston. In the 1881 census John and Mary White (nee Parslow) were living in Camberwell and had one son Ernest (my grandfather). I think, following John's death or some form of separation, Mary returned to the Kingston area as there is a Mary White of the correct age living at 11 Kings Road, Kingston. If you have any info that would help I would be grateful.
Regards
Carole Helsen

Surnames: Parslow
Dear Norma
We were in touch some time ago but I recently sent for the birth certificate of my great grandmother Mary White (nee Parslow) I knew her father was William Parslow (Painter) but I was surprised to find that her mother was "Mary Parslow, late Fowler, formerly White". According to the 1871 census she was born around 1815 in Fletton in Silsoe, Beds. This is very strange because if her description on the birth certificate means that she was born Mary White and then married a Fowler who died, she could very well be related to John White (my great grandfather ) who married her daughter! John White's was born in Clophill, Beds and lots of his relatives were born in Fletton or Silsoe and surrounding areas. Can you throw any light on Mary Parslow senior? I think you are in contact with my cousin Ken. Sorry if I am duplicating his queries.

I hope you get this message so long after it was posted. I think I am related to one of those Mary's. She would be married to Francis Parslow who died in the Civil War. He was from Greene County though. I think Francis' mother may have been Mary, married to a John Parslow. Any connections?

Hello John, in reply to your message.
Not unless Mary originated from Surrey, England. But I will check my files to find out if there is a John Parslow b. 1835/6.
I know a lot of Parslows relocated to USA in 19th century.
Do you have any more info?
regards, Norma
