    Thanks Lesley,I came across this site by accident. I’m doing my family history on my mother’s side, have managed to get as far back as 1816 my g grandfather x3 called Joseph Beevis was a tailor and lived in Glemsford suffolk. I’ve noticed tailoring appears a lot in that family line . Would appreciate any information on the beevis family.

    As a point from which to work this is your Joseph in the 1841 census? Name mistranscibed.

    Joseph Beaves 25 Tailor born in county? Yes
    Mary Ann Beaves 20 yes
    Elizebeth Beaves 3 yes
    Joseph Beaves 2 yes

    So if this is your Joseph's birth age 2 above Joseph snr's wife is Mary nee Allen.

    JOSEPH ALLEN BEAVIS, mother's maiden name Allen
    GRO Reference - June 1/4 1839 Quarter registration district SUDBURY Vol 12 Page 444

    From Joseph Beavis and Mary Allen were married 1 March 1837 at Glemsford, Suffolk. Unfortunately just a few months too early to be on the official marriage register which started in September that year and would have named his father.

    I am going to move (and do a small edit) on your last post and my reply post, to the Suffolk forum as it has become a research post. I will leave your original post in the Introduce Yourself forum.
