I've recently discovered that a branch of my family came from North Moreton and I wondered if anyone had any information at all? I guess it's unlikely that there are still relatives there now but you never know. Failing that can anyone tell me where the Parish Records are now held please?
My trail starts/ends (depending on how you view it) with Steven Davis who was married at All Saints in North Moreton on 1st October 1727, to Jane Floid. I don’t know yet when he was born or died. All I know of them is that they were married there and had at least one son, Edward Davis who was christened at All Saints but I'm not entirely sure when.
Edward was born in 1741 and died in 1827. He married a lady called Sarah Low in St Bartholomew’s in Basildon and moved to Ashampstead where he died in 1827. The Davis’s seem to have stayed at Ashampstead for a long while before migrating to Hampstead Norris.
Any information on Steven, his wife or the Davis family would be very gratefully received.
Hello hope this is of use. I have the registers for both North and South Moreton on CD. Edward Davis was baptised in All Saints on 23 April 1743, parents Stephen and Jane. Others to the same parents were: Stephen was baptised on 14 Feb 1735 Thomas on 17 July 1734 Ann on 8 Feb 1729 Jane on 4 Feb 1727 John on 17 March 1744 Stephen 17 April 1747 (no record of the other Stephen's death although I would have assumed that to be the case)
Hi Keith, I am also tracing the Davis family history, and if you are using ancestry.co.uk, you find all the information I have so far gathered. My tree also ends in North Moreton, with Stephen and Jane. My grandfather was Edward C S Davis, who's father was Charles Stephen Davis who was born in 1874 in Hampstead Norris.
