George WALKER ad infinitum

#1 | Posted: 17 May 2013 20:44
I'm trying to find the correct George WALKER to link with my William WALKERS in Staffordshire in the late 1700s & early 1800s. Without any more clues from missing census data in FreeBMD England or more parish records, I'm stumped. Any clues appreciated. I know my two Williams are OK. Thanks all!

That's the end of this thread already- I have found the one I think is the correct George Walker! Hooray! He was born in 1812, had a son named William in 1844 who has George as his father on his marriage certificate. William's birth certificate has Hannah as his mother's name, so I discovered a Hannah While who was born the closest to George and to the church they married in, eliminating a Hannah Beach and a Hannah Malkin (which may be incorrect). If I could get some decent census data for Staffordshire, I could verify the names in each household but Staffordshire is barely covered in the FreeCen transcriptions. Fingers crossed someone can look up more Walkers for Census from 1841 to 1881. Thanks to Beverley for giving me the most feasible George!

Here I am again replying to my own post!

I'm now 99% sure I have found the correct George WALKER, b. 1822. Via the FreeReg transcriptions from Parish Registers and the Internet Archive's Open Books, I have located several generations of Walkers with the right dates, baptisms, marriages and locations, giving me a totally different George WALKER with a wife who truly belongs in Axholm because her name is Bella HULME! So I have George WALKER (with Bella his wife) producing my great grandfather William WALKER in 1843; then his son William producing another William in 1873, who produced my father Edward Alfred in 1902. Before George came his parents, Thomas WALKER and Elizabeth RODEN and before them came Fowler WALKER and Phebe who must have been born around the 1760s. Every generation of these WALKERs has been born in Staffordshire, making the task of tracking them down very intricate. Now to track the maternal sides of these families- both HULME and RODEN seem to derive from Old Norse names, so that should be interesting. I'd love to hear from others who are tracing ancestors in the same region of England where the Norsemen were said to have made an early settlement.
Cheers, Kay
