In Reply to: Miles BIRKBECK by Deb Beban of 68

Deb, have you had any more luck with Miles? Here are three Miles. I wonder if and if so then how he may be related to a Thomas Birkbeck that I am searching.

There seem to a number of Miles Birkbecks and an even greater number of Thomas Birkbecks.

IN Batch# M107652 on the site.
There are 4 marriages:
Daniel Birkbeck m. 14 May 1826, Bradford, Yorkshire to Mary WADDINGTON
Miles Birkbeck m. 26 Feb 1829, Bradford, Yorkshire to Mary MILNER
Hannah Birkbeck m. 29 Sep 1834 Bradford, Yorkshire to John WADDINGTON
Thomas Birkbeck m. 10 Aug 1836 Bradford, Yorkshire to Margaret ACKROYD

Now I think that the Thomas with sp. Margaret could be the couple that I am searching but once you look at the age they are claiming to be in the Census that falls apart. If they are the same Thomas Birkbeck and Margaret as in the 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871 [Margaret only] then they were 10 or 11 years of age at marriage. Which does not work.

So lets just say that I am very confused.

Thomas was alive for the 1861 census but not alive for the 1871 census. According to the Death Index there was a Thomas Birkbeck who died in 1862, 1863, and 1864. It may be that I will need to purchase each of the death records to point a finger to the Thomas Birkbeck that I seek.

BTW: Thomas Birkbeck and Margaret the following children:
James b. 1838-d.1887
Hannah b. 8140-d. 1845
Joseph b.1845
Uriah b. 1850 d. 1853
Charlotte b. 1854 d. 1881

I was going over some old ground from years ago. This is to early for me to connect to but it is worth keeping tabs on and following up on.
I have from FHL# 1597063, Queensbury Register of Members of Baptism 1774-1864.
A Miles Birkbeck with Spouse Betty
note on pg. 213 of film "Bro. Miles Birkbeck died 8 July 1823" [I don't know that this is the same Miles]]

Here are the children for Miles Birkbeck and Betty from baptismal records

Martha b. 17 unkn 1769, North Owram
William, b. 5 Mar 1772, North Owram

William, b. 24 Jan 1776, North Owram
John, b. 2 Dec 1778, North Owram
Mary, b. 16 nov 1780, North Owram
Joseph, b. 1782, North Owram
Betty, b. 19 May 1785, North Owram

What do you think??
