I have traced my Salisbury/solesbury relatives back to a Dan Solesbury who married Hannah Peet in Milton Ernest in 1765. If anyone has any further information on that family I would love to hear from them.

Kim,
I am recently following up hand written notes made by my wife's cousin made during a visit she made to Bedford a good few years ago to follow her family roots from Sheffield , England to Milton Ernest. She notes a Dan Salisbury and Hanna Peet with a marriage in 17-02-1765. I have a clear paper trails to Andrew Solesbury of Milton Ernest born c1830 who married charlotte Bird of Stagsden, Beds.
Currently trying to locate Andrew's father,William Solesbury b around 1800 who married Hannah Hinch.
How far do we overlap?
Regards.......David McCallum, St-Bruno PQ, Canada

Thanks for getting back to me. Dan Salisbury and Hannah Peet are my great,great,great,great grandparents. When I was in Milton Ernest in 2009 I checked the parish registers back to him. Unfortunately there are no Salisburys mentioned in the registers before the marriage of Dan and Hannah. There was a Dan Solesbury born in North Crawley, Buckinghamshire, in 1749, the son of a Daniel Solesbury and Elizabeth Amos. There was another Daniel Salisberry baptised on 27 April 1746 in Moulsoe, Buckinghamshire, the son of Peter and Keziah Salisberry. So, not sure which of these ended up marrying Hannah Peet in Milton Ernest. There are no earlier records of Salisburys in Buckinghamshire, so I'm not sure where the family came from before this. That would be an interesting thing to find out. Any help there would be appreciated. Check out my Salisbury Family Tree on Ancestry to see more about my line back to Dan and Hannah in Milton Ernest. Hope this helps.
Regards, Kim
