I need to find out the parents of Samuel Hudd, born c. 1798, Melksham (possibly Lacock), Wiltshire.

He married Harriet Parker and died in 1867.

According to the IGI there were 2 Samuel Hudds born in 1798 in that area, one with parents Charles Hudd and Millicent (Mellicent) Veltum, and the other parents could be James Hudd and Martha King.

Viewing the 1841 and 1851 Censuses as ...

I'm looking for any information on my thames barge ancestors. The surnames are Saunders, Coker and Paine and they sailed and owned thames barges throughout the 1800's.

Henry Morley 1757 - where do I go now?

I'm hoping that someone could help me!
After years of researching my Morley history, i'm now at a complete standstill :(
