Surnames: Partridge,
Hello,

I am trying to help a fellow researcher in New Zealand research her English ancestry.

Would it be possible for some one to look up a baptism of Richard Edwin PARTRIDGE in the Parish Registers for Buckenham. Not sure whether it is Old or New Buckenham, sorry!. His birth was registered Sept Qtr 1853 in Blofield RD and his parents were Robert Partridge and Elizabeth.

Any other sightings for siblings would also be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks - Jennifer

Hi Ell

I cannot thank you enough for all the trouble you have gone to on my behalf and also on behalf of my friend in New Zealand. This is terrific work so very well done from us both!

I had found the family on the census you mentioned, thank you. It is nice to have my late night surffing confirmed!

Richard Edwin b. 1853 consistently records he was born Buckenham, Norfolk so much so that his descendants in NZ new this at the start of their research. I wonder whether the baptism you found for a Richard Benjamin might conceivably refer to my Richard? Maybe the parish clerk made a mistake when recording the event? It wouldn't be the 1st time I have come across an error! An October baptism would appear to fit nicely with the GRO Index reference in Sept Qtr 1853. Unfortunately my friend cannot afford to buy the birth certificate so I cannot double check the father's occupation etc.

Please accept my best wishes for a very happy Easter.

Jennifer

You are most welcome.

Yes, errors abound on /all written documents - the earlier, the worse!! part of the chase/challange (LOL) - you could look this up at an LDS near you - you have to order 1st (a few pennies) and wait about 7 days - however - it still COULD be him.....

Wow Ell

I have woken up this morning to a whole shower of responses from you! Thank you so much. I hadn't even looked for the 1841 census in Derbyshire so that is a real find! I do have all the rest though!

Oh yes, I am very familiar with the LDS FH Centres and became a regular at my local for nearly 10 years out of the 20+ years I have been researching my own family names. A wonderful source for records! Now I am without transport of my own and public transport doesn't go where I want it, I am limited to online research.I am doing this as a favour to my friend in NZ who has a budget of nil but it keeps me busy over a long bank holiday weekend by myself.

Did you get the data from an LDS FHC or the FamilySearch website or their vital statistics CD? I don't like the new website much so I usually click to use the 'old' site. I had searched for Robert's baptism in the IGI for Buckenham without any luck before posting on this site!

Once again thank you so much for your diligence in tackling my query which is quite beyond the call of duty and very much appreciated.

Regards Jennifer

Really tried to find a marriage but, no luck - I looked all over England (like a dog with a bone!!) LOL!

The LDS reference's I have shown - yeah I don't like the Beta Search as 9 times out of 10, I get "connection lost" which I know it is not so I use the "Pilot" search instead and, the old one as the info is not necessarily on both - the baptism for Robert Arthur & his marriage are from Parish registers

Best wishes

Hi Ell,

I hope you are stilling watch this!! Do you by any chance have access to the LDS Vital Records Index on CD? If so can you look for a marriage for a Robert PARTRIDGE to a Mary in Barningham Norwood circa 1760 plus or minus? The IGI gives simply loads of children for a Robert & Mary in this parish but I think they may not all be one and the same family.

I have heard that another researcher found the family using the Vital Records rather than IGI. The annoying thing is I do have the CDs but they wont work with Vista!!!

I know from Census Returns that Francis Partridge s/o Robert & Mary was born in Barningham and the IGI has his baptism in 1777.

Hoping you can help as I am now well & truly stuck!!!

Regards and thanks Jennifer
