    Default Ralph Sands

    My 3xgreat grandfather Ralph Sands was married to an Elizabeth Twells at St. Mary Nottingham in 1792. However I can find no trace of his birth and cannot therefore get any further back. Can any body offer any ideas? I'm ever hopeful!

    Was Ralph was born abt 1771 in Nottinghamshire? In the 1841 census here -> HO107/870 b.3, f.29, p.6

    As a possibility, there is this baptism...
    Ralph Sands on 29 May 1772 at St Werburgh, Derby. Parents Ralph and Mary.
    (Source Family Search)

    A possible marriage for these parents...
    • Ralph Sands to Mary Carver on 29 Sep 1760 at Saint Mary,Nottingham
    Other children of Ralph SANDS and Mary ...
    • John on 17 Jun 1761 at St Mary Nottingham
    • Mary on 26 Jan 1763 at St Mary Nottingham
    • Mary on 06 Mar 1765 at St Mary Nottingham
    • Sarah on 19 Feb 1770 at St Mary Nottingham

    Derby is not so far from Nottingham (about 15 miles) so it could be that Ralph and Mary moved to Derby for a while and had Ralph jnr baptised there.

    Thank you very much for that. I obviously clicked on the wrong one!

    Thank you so much for that. I think it looks very hopeful. I had already looked at the other children of Ralph and Mary but despaired when I could find no Ralph. Now I have renewed enthusiasm!
