The MANCEYs of BASING

Postby SDV » Wed Oct 30, 2019 4:19 pm

I am trying to track down the off-spring of John and Sarah MANCEY/MANSEY/MANSY, who lived in Old Basing in Hampshire.

William was born in 1802 and was baptised 12 Dec 1802. He then disappears, until a general labourer named William MANCEY dies in December 1865 in Totterdown, Basingstoke. Assuming this is the same person, where was he for the rest of his life? Did he marry?

James was born in 1814 and was baptised 04 May 1814. He then totally disappears off the record.

Thomas was born in 1821 and was baptised 29 Jul 1821. He married Harriet ILSLEY on 19 Mar 18148 in Old Basing. The couple are together living in Old Basing in 1851. Thomas dies in May 1860. I would like to know where he was in 1841.

There's a William Mansey at Nately Scures, about 3 miles from Old Basing in 1841.
In 1851 a William Mansey of Nately is with Sarah and 3 children at Odiham.
Still there in 1861 and 1871.
Married a Sarah White in 1842 jan Q Hartley Winney district v7 p130
He's dead in Oct Q 1871

Templ4r - you could be right, but I don't think so. The man you found is slightly too young, which wouldn't necessarily be a problem by itself, but combined with him stating that he was born in Nately and Odiham rather than Whitchurch makes me doubtful. Still it is probably worth checking the wedding register to see if any of the witnesses tell a story.

That's what I was thinking, but at least it cancels him out.

I think the William Mansey you have found in the census records was prob born and baptised in 1805 at Up Nately. Baptised 26 May parents Thomas and Anne. He married 4 June 1834 in Odiham. Interestingly bride was Sarah Mancy. No Fathers mentioned.

Again transcript only but a James Mancy married a Deborah Reading at Rotherwick 26 Oct 1833 5 miles from Old Basibg . No Fathers mentioned.
I used FMP for all the research BUT there is a good little website for Hampshire www.knightroots.co.uk. It’s a but hit and miss but there are lots of transcriptions for Old Basing.

meekhcs - I found your James, husband of Deborah, in 1851 and 1861. In both, he is a gardener born in Winchfield. I suppose Winchfield could be a mistake for Whitchurch, but I am not convinced.

About to have a good look at the website you suggested.

Thanks

Yes looking at Familysearch he could well be James baptised 1807 Odiham.
It is very difficult because even looking at PR’s in the early 1800s it will often be one line entries of A married B or the banns entry with date of marriage attached and no extra info. Very often marriage witnesses have no connection to bride or groom but are parishioners if the church.
An email to Winchester Records Office May turn up something. They are very helpful especially if you are not local.
