26-10-2004, 5:29 PM
Anyone out there tracing the Rose family? Im looking for a link for a Johannis (John) Rose somewhere around 1670 - 1690. I know he had 7 children of which Richardus (Richard) is my direct line. Richard was born in 1716 - the youngest of the known 7 children. The eldest being born 1692. I would appreciate any info anyone has.

I am afraid I cannot help with your Rose family, but do you by any chance know of any Payne connections in your family?
I am trying to establish the date and place of birth of Wliiam Payne, born c. 1700, who stated that he was 'of Wolford' when he married Mary Young in Tredington in 1734. All their children were baptised at Great Wolford.
There appear to be few records of the family name Payne in and around the Wolfords/Long Compton before 1700. I am therefore coming to the conclusion that William may well have been an 'incomer' to the village, possibly from Chipping Campden.

I do have Paynes in my tree but sadly they are from Norfolk not Warwichshire. Sorry.

My wife and I have just returned from a week's family history research at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust Record Office and Warwicks. RO. In the course of researching my Payne family in Gt. Wolford and Long Compton, and also in nearby parishes, we came across numerous mentions of the surname Rose going back to the early 1600s. Unfortunately, I did not have a record of the information you are seeking with me.
In fact we searched the transcripts of Warwicks. parish registers by the Rev. J. Harvey Bloom which he undertook in the early 1900s, rather than film and microfiches - much easier than the original records, even though the handwriting in the transcripts is somewhat indifferent at times.
If you live near enough to be able to visit SBPT RO. it would be well worth your while to spend some time there. I'm planning a further visit late Aug.-Sept., so will see what I can do for you next time I'm there.

I believe my line includes Richard Rose. I have been researching my 4 great- grandfather Henry [Harry] Rose was b. 1Apr1782, Long Compton. He was the s. of John Rose [b.16Nov1752] & [m.16Apr1781] Hannah Eden [b.12Oct1755]. John Rose was the s. of Richard Rose [b.24Jan1727] & [m.8Oct1745] to Mary Hyatt. I may have more. My line moved to South Littleton/Evesham area. Later 3 great grandfather George Rose emigrated in 1865 to New Jersey, America. Does any of this sound familiar?

yes what you say does sound familiar. My line is as follows:
Starting with John who is the father of Richard Rose (Great Wolford)
Richard married Mary Hyatt one of their sons was John (Long Compton)
John Married Hannah Eden giving birth to Henry (Long Compton)**
Henry married Ann Drinkwater giving birth to Henry (South Littleton)
Henry married Sarah Leicester giving birth to George (South Littleton)
Georrge married Louisa Illes giving birth to Maud (Birmingham)
Maud married Randolph George Evans giving birth to Violet (Birmingham)
Violet is my grandmother
Ive not included all the other siblings but there are quite a few of them. Your George is the son of the Henry I have marked ** I have his birth as 30 Jan 1820. He was a little younger than his brother Henry by some 5 years.
If you want I can give you my personal email so you can mail me direct.

I am a part of your line from Richard (1727) m. Mary Hyatt (1745). I am descended from their eldest son Richard (1746) in Long Compton, War. I believe I can get back another generation or so from Richard (1727). There is some interesting information to relate if you will contact me.
Regards, George F. Rose
