Hi,
Can anyone help with info. regarding children of DANIEL MILLARD and ELIZA SHERWOOD, married 2/5/1862 Flitton. The only child I have is GEORGE MILLARD b. 15/2/1865. I'd also appreciate help tracing the marriage of Daniel's father, SAMUEL MILLARD, and any other children. I've been told he was born 1811 Flitton and married Sarah Clarke.

Many thanks, Angela

I can't find your Daniel Millard in the 1841 and 1851 census, only another one born in 1831 in Stotfold, Bedfordshire, son of George and Mary Millard. In 1861 your Daniel does appear at last:
Greenfield, Flitton [RG9/1000 page 16]
Lodger: Daniel MILLARD, 21, Miller's man, Ware Hedges, Flitton

In 1871 he is married with children:
Greenfield, Flitton [RG10/1555 page 27]
Head: Daniel MILLARD, 32, AG Lab, Greenfield
Wife: Eliza MILLARD, 27, Plaiter, Greenfield
Son: William MILLARD, 7, Scholar, Greenfield
Son: George MILLARD, 6, Scholar, Greenfield
Son: Alfred MILLARD, 4, Scholar, Greenfield

In 1881 there are more children but Daniel is a widower:
Greenfield, Flitton [RG11/1635 page 25]
Head: Daniel MILLARD, 22, Ag Lab, Flitton
Son: William MILLARD, 17, Ag Lab, Flitton
Son: George MILLARD, 16, Ag Lab, Flitton
Son: Alfred MILLARD, 15, Ag Lab, Flitton
Son: Arthur Harry MILLARD, 6, Scholar, Flitton
Daughter: Annie MILLARD, 4, Scholar, Flitton
Niece: Elizabeth Taylor, 16, Straw Plaiter, Flitton

In 1891 he is remarried:
Flitton [RG12/1260 page 16]
Head: Daniel MILLARD, 51, Gardener, Flitton
Wife: Sarah MILLARD, 46, Pulloxhill
Son: Arthur Harry MILLARD, 16, Gen Lab, Flitton
Daughter: Annie MILLARD, 14, Scholar, Flitton

By 1901 he is dead and Sarah is alone, a widow of 56 [RG13/1502 page 8]

In 1841 there is a Samuel Millard in Flitton, who seems to have remarried a woman called Elizabeth and her children aged from 11 to 2 are with them. Their surname is transcribed as Aide but to me looks more like Hide. I have followed through with the IGI on this as one of the children is called, unusually, Sinfield. Sure enough, there is a Sinfield Hyde of the right age born to a Sinfield and Elizabeth Hyde in Flitton.

Samuel seems to have died later that year - OND 1841 Biggleswade 6 40.

Hope some of this is new to you.
Pat

Hi Pat,
Thanks for the message, quite a lot of it is new to me. I hope it will link together a few more strands. It helps to see it all in one place as the story so far has been constructed from second hand family research (that doesn't give sources) and probability.

Thanks again,
Angela

Hi Birdlip,
Thanks for your help. Do you have the rest of the dates for Samuel and Elizabeth Hyde's children please?

Thanks,

Hi Angela,

Emma is the only child I could find listed for Samuel and Elizabeth Hyde.

I might have confused you by writing 'continued' under her name, sorry, I just meant I had more info in the next post.

Hi Birdlip,
Angela again, I was wondering if you came across any later entries for Samuel And Sarah Clark's children as the Daniel I'm following (b. 1839) wasn't on the list. Also I'm trying to work out whether any of these Samuels is a possible sibling. If you find any other children let me know.

Thanks again,
Angela

Hi Angela,

there were no other children listed for these parents. I couldn't find Daniel, I've just had another look to double check.
