James Rawes Parker - 1788-1843

Postby rfitzgerald1963 » Wed Aug 24, 2016 12:46 pm

Now this is likely to sound like a daft question but, I have found my 4x Great Grandfather and he died in 1843 in the City of London I have found a probate record on Findmypast for a probate which says Consistory Court Of London, where can I get this probate and is it likely to tell me anything? I am hoping it will tell me about his wife Mary Ann... ??? as i cannot find her maiden name or any record of their marriage.


As Always many thanks :D

Hello
The will is on Ancestry.
It gives his address 18 Old Fish St ,his occupation as pocket book maker and he leaves everything to his widow Mary Ann.This comes to £100.
Sorry but nothing about her.
His burial at St Nicholas Cole 8.10.1843 says he is from Little Bishop Lane but that could just be the main road Old Fish St runs onto.
The 1841 census says they are 53 and 45 and neither from the cty.

Could this Warwickshire marriage be connected?
George Parker + Elizabeth Rawes
6th February 1786, Saint Michael, Coventry

Hereford Journal, Wednesday, November 10, 1819
City of Hereford
Splendid Library of Books, and Books of Prints
To be sold by Auction by Mr Hodgson
Green Dragon Inn, Broad street, Hereford, November the Tenth 1819
the genuine Property of James Rawes Parker, Esq.
Sold in consequence of Mr. Parker's intention of quitting England.

Earlier in the same year, 1819, it was announced that James Rawes Parker and Robert Robertson, Fancy Cabinet Makers of No. 5 Grove lane, Lower Marsh, Lambeth, had dissolved their partnership.

Again, is there any connection here, or none?

Thanks thats great, the will is correct but i was really hoping that it would help me find the maiden name of his wife.... one piece solved but still can't get to the next generation i was hoping if i found the maiden name that would help me with the marriage and that would lead me the the fathers of the bride and groom... James was a londoner so do not think the hereford lead is valid, sadly :cry:

Not bad based on inflation by today's standard he would have left his wife £11,500 not a huge amount but not bad.

Hi Richard.
Don't dismiss the Hereford lead as it says the partnership was in Lambeth.
You can't get more London than that. Jim

my apologies Ianbee, it looks like there is a connection. the earlier piece on the desolving the partnership was that in the same paper or was that somewhere else? ---- Sorry Got it, in the Gazette


Thanks
