Zebulon connection
Son of Richard B & (Mary Dixon)b 5/11/1788, Aldbourn
The above Zebulon was only about seven when Zebulon married Elizabeth Goodchild. It is tempting to think that both probably had a common ancestor.

Dear Mr Brind

herewith your requests

1> Elijah Brind b & Sarah Martin sp
1836 Jul 4 Beedon

2 John Brind widower of Aston Gifford Wilts & Mary Hanslow 1828 Jan 1 Fyfield by licence

The first marriage is straight forward. The second however is from the BTs (Bishops Transcripts) since the registers for Fyfield are not available (or in a parlous state). Please note the name Hanslow. It could be Hewlett, but its the way you read the register.- the writing was probably unreadable. You could check on this to make sure. Remember that the age of these people can only be based on their baptisms-- not birth year. Often children were not registered in the baptismal register until 4 or 5 years old. SA point o keep in mind.-- Even the census returns are of little help.

I do have a large number of transcripts at home and I went thro the one for Beedon
1813 Sp 4 Elijah son of Zabulon and Elzab Brind bapt
1796 Feb 22 Zebulon Brind and Elzab Goodchild at Catmore mnarried
This couple had a large family beginning with
1797 Dec 17 Zebulon and Elzab Brind bapt
born Nov 20
1815 Oct 22 Enock s/o Zeb and Elzab Brind bapt

(See work done by Eustace.)
I could find no bapt of John Brind.- so I don't think he was the brother of Elijah.

I do not have a computer. My indices are on card which were done 15 years ago.

best wishes JB
