I see that you are related to the Blakesley Drinkwaters. My wife descends from Drinkwaters of Cold Higham, which is very nearby. I recently went to Cold Higham and Blakesley to see the areas and find any relevant records. In Blakesley at the parish cemetery I found a booklet full of Blakesley burials. There were many Drinkwaters. I took digital pictures of each page and will soon transcribe them.

I am hoping that the Blakesley Drinkwaters are related to those in Cold Higham, but as of yet have found no confirming evidence other than proximity. I am stuck at William Drinkwater who married Mary Hopley. Mary was born in Cold Higham on 23 Jul 1774. I have no birth date or place for William nor a marriage date.

Does your line have any connection to Drinkwaters of Cold Higham? Either way, I'd be happy to exchange any info on the Blakesley and Cold Higham Drinkwaters.
