    Default PERKINS (PERKINGS) Ricd (Richard) born abt. 1771 & HORTON Ann born abt. 1775

    Your help is needed as I'm stuck atm.

    The Perkins side of my family tree goes back to Richard Perkins 2 July 1799 Saint Phillips, Birmingham, Warwick, England.

    He had a brother William Perkins 14 April 1800 Saint Phillips, Birmingham, Warwick, England.

    There are other children all at Saint Phillips, Birmingham, Warwick, England also with the parents of Richard Perkins and Ann, these are:

    Thomas Perkins 15 July 1796
    Ann Perkins 9 Jun 1797
    Elizabeth Perkins 10 May 1802
    Sarah Perkins 4 Nov 1805

    In my family line the name Thomas is given to the first born son and as the above Thomas is the eldest I say these are all the same family.

    I seached for a marriage on the IGI between a Richard Perkins and and Ann about 1796 in Warwick as Thomas was born then.

    I found 3 entries for the same marriage (2 were Banns) and this marriage was
    21 FEB 1796 Holy Trinity, Stratford On Avon, Warwick, England (about 5 months before Thomas was born)
    The other info of the Banns and Marriage entries are
    PERKINGS (PERKINS) RICD (Richard) born About 1771, Of Stratford,On-Avon, , Warwick, England
    HORTON Ann born About 1775, Of Stratford On Avon, Warwick, England

    Which means this Ann would have been about 21yo when she had Thomas and Richard would have been about 25yo (that is if the about dates are correct).

    Any help regarding this Richard PERKINGS (PERKINS) and HORTON Ann is greatly appreciated.

    I know it's a long shot because of when Richard and Ann were born about but can someone check and see if either of them appear in the first census (I figure they won't but anything is worth a try).

    Kind Regards,

    The marriage of Richard PERKINGS & Ann HORTON took place on 21 February 1796 at Holy Trinity as you say, but according to my parish register transcript CD it states that Richard was a bachelor and Ann a spinster, both of the parish, and the witnesses were an Edward EDKINS & M TAYLOR, so I don't know where Somerset comes into the equation.

    It looks as if son Thomas may have been buried at Birmingham St Mary on 10 February 1824 aged 28 years, of The Hospital. Therefore looking at the parish register images of Birmingham St Mary via Ancestry, there are a couple of burials that may be relevant to you, i.e. on 10 February 1828 Richard PERKINS of Charlotte Street, aged 66, and on 19 February 1832 Ann PERKINS, widow, Water Street, aged 67. So if these ages at death are correct, we are looking for the baptism of a Richard PERKINS c1762 and an Ann HORTON c1765.

    I think the dates given in post 4 are more likely than those Wayne cites in post 1. I would want to know where these last came from, as marriage records pre-1837 do not often give ages. I think the LDS church may use a standard age of 21 for brides when they calculate ages, but as we all know, people marry at different ages. In my family the women tend to marry at 30, so you get different ranges for baptisms. Somerset is a long way from Warwickshire so I would want a good solid clue to make links that distant. pwholt

    Richard and his siblings information quoted in the 1st post came from the IGI

    1851 census has Richard (son Richard and Ann)
    52 Pistol Maker, Place of Birth Birmingham (so was born 1799 as per my initial post of information I had found on the IGI) IGI info I printed years ago says Christened 2 July 1799 at St Phillips, Birmingham, Warwick, England.

    (These all say parents Richard and Ann Perkins)


    His brother William (not listed in post 1) was also on the IGI (plus a witness at Richards marriage to Harriet Kendrick plus Richard and Harriet were witnesses at his marriage)
    1851 Census has William Perkins (widower) 51 Packing Box Maker, Birth Place Birmingham (so born 1800). IGI info I printed years ago says, Christened 14 April 1800, Saint Phillips Birmingham, Warwick England

    IGI for their other siblings that I printed out years ago says

    Ann Pirkins Christened 9 July 1797 Saint Phillips Birmingham, Warwick, England
    Elizabeth Perkins Christened 10 May 1802 Saint Phillips, Birmingham, Warwick, England
    Thomas Perkins Christened 15 July 1796 Saint Phillips, Birmingham, Warwick, England
    Sarah Perkins Christened 4 Nov 1805 Saint Phillips, Birmingham, Warwick, England

    Stratford On Avon regarding the possible Marriage of their parents (under my understanding) is in Warwickshire and one entry for the possible Marriage I am looking at says Stratford On Avon, the other just says Stratford.

    Somerset was a possible birth for this Richard. Now I have a death and age I can do a better search for his birth

    Janet this Thomas Perkins who died 10 Feb 1824 aged 28 appears to match with my Richard's brother Thomas Christened 15 July 1796 as he would have turned 28 in 1824 (according to his Christening) Thomas was the first born. My Richard who married Harriet Kendrick, their first son was also named Thomas.

    I just searched freereg and the only christening for a Richard Perkins that came up between 1770-1773 is 1 in 1772 in Somerset (tried the spelling Perkings with no results). Soundex located a Richard Perking Christened Jan 1770 in Devon.
