Hi all,

I have Eliza Smith who married John Winkles at St Martin's Church could anyone see if there is any other information available about who her parents were and witnesses.

Thank you for taking the time to read this kind regards Paula:)

i dont know if you have seen this paula, but on ancestry there are several family trees for your family.

they seem to have aaron smith b. 1775 b. bham and jane chambers b. 1771 b. b.ham as the parents of eliza smith. some have 1 or 2 further generations backwards. i cant tell you if these are correct though.

there is a christening of "elizabeth" smith on 30 sep 1800 at st. martins with parents aaron and jane smith.

also a marriage of aaron smith to jane chambers at st. phillips, bham on 21st march 1796

Hi Shera,

Thanks for the look up, I have not seen the tree on ancestry with Eliza's parents, I tend to want to find out and prove myself as I know some one took some details off my tree and they are following the wrong parent, I like to get the cert's etc to prove who they are.
I will follow up on the parent's though and check. Thanks for the marriage look-up I was hoping it would have the parent's but with the year I know it can be hit and miss.
I have a lot on the Winkles side as another researcher got in touch and he related to that side but then I am with the Clayton's where the Winkles married into the Clayton's so we managed to swap information and help each other out.

Anyway hope you are well and thanks again Paula

hi shera
many thanks for your look up i do beleive they was marrid in st martins around the 1939 to be a fact
and she had a brother named phillip hinton whom in 1955 lived in number 3 back of 132 ickneild square beleved to be a beatrice hinton
so i presume she was either a sister or wife and my mothers name inmcluded the beatrice name along with her or christian names so i wonder whether or not there is a connection and adding the berthavictoria saga to the wedding of her and ernest jelf could conclude any think
is it possible you may be get to access on that or may be some one out there is related to the phillip hinton today whom may be able to throw some light on it as to his the mother
sheramany thanks again for your valuable time best wishes astonion ps , this phillip hinton was born in 1909 and could be the half brother to my mother
joyce ivy beatrice jelf the one and only child to bertha victoria and ernest jelf thanks astonion

Hi Paula
You appear to be my distant cousin!
Ann Winkles born 1823, to John Winkles and Eliza, is my ancestor. She married Hubert Cornelius Jessop, a muffin and pikelet maker.
I'm from Handsworth and still have family there.
Best wishes
Lu

Lyn, I would have guessed at St Martins too. Can you read the name of the vicar/Clergy? If so it might be worth googling the names and hope something shows up.
I have just found on one site that 1924-1948 Cannon Guy Rogers was at St Martins - although I would have thought more than one person performed marriages.
