It's ages since I last communicated, though
it is not for lack of activity on my side of the world. One
of the THURLBY side of the family has unearthed some good information regarding
the link between the I'ANSONS and THURLBYs in 1812:
MARGARET JANSON & THOMAS THURLBY in 1812 at Edmondthorpe, east
Leicestershire, right on the Rutland border.(Source: Leicestershire Marriage
This almost certainly identifies our THOMAS T. who has come across from
Swayfield in Lincolnshire. There is an old claim within our
family notes that THOMAS THURLBY's wife MARGARET JANSON was the younger
sisiter of SARAH MARGARET & JOHN SAMUEL's father, JOHN JANSON (b1774).
JOHN JANSON & MARGARET may have set out for the south
MARGARET meanwhile marries a THURLBY & JOHN JANSON continues on
to London where he marries MARGARET SARAH DAVIS on
10.9.1814 at St.Botolph's Algate. He is listed as a wool draper.
JOHN senior's father is FRANCIS and his mother ANN. Earlier you
discussed with me whether JOHN could have been form FRANCIS & ANN PALMER,
or the other ANN (who now looks like ANN MOUNCEY m.23.11.1773
E.Witten,Yks.) Their children.....
In the I.G.I. ANN has no surname [NB This marriage
needs checking in the Parish Register- -which village?].
JOHN JANSON c. 9.10.1774 Hauxwell
ISOBELLA JANSON c.6.6.1786, Spennithorne
ELIZABETH JANSON c. 24.1.1780 Spennithorne
ANN JANSON c. 19.5.1782 Spennithorne
MARGARET JANSON c.26.11.1788 Spennithorne
Were there any other children born
between JOHN & ELIZABETH? I'm aware that WILLIAM JANSON
& ISOBELLA (DENNISON) as well as MILES JANSON & MARY were in Spennithorne
at that time.
William's son JOHN's christening date would fit more appropriately,
being 3.2.1788 - though cannot be, logically. If the JOHN above is correct
he would have been
40 yrs old when he started his family in London. It just seems
such a coincidence that these dates fit and that they are all family
names.[NB They are also very common names in all
families!] THOMAS & MARGARET THURLBY's children were JOHN,
I hope you may have some thoughts on this or be able to direct me on
to someone who could shed more light on the connections.
Looking forward to hearing from you, Yours sincerely,
(nee Thurlby,grt grt granddaughter of Sarah margaret I'Anson)
