Ken created the topic: Re John Herbert born 1798 Oakridge, Bisley
Hello, I am trying to trace my husbands Herbert relatives. John Herber was my husbands Gt Grandfather x 4, t born 1798/99 in Oakridge/Bisley. Married Elizabeth Bucknell on 26th January 1818 Bisley.
I have him as a Woolllen Cloth Weaver in the 1841 census at Chalford Lynch bisley. On the 1851 census he was a Hand Loom Weaver - Wool in Bisley. It is also the Bucknell line I will be tracing as well, this is my husbands descendant. not Priscilla Peacey below who was the 2nd wife.
He remarried in 1858 aged 59 to Priscilla Peacey (from Oakridge I believe) at Bisley.
In 1861 he was at Chalford Hill Bisley as a cloth weaver. In 1871 he was at Chalford Road as a weaver. The same in 1881. He died in 1882 aged 83. I am unclear who John Herberts parents were. I had thought it may have been Daniel Herbert, but having read one of your other emails I see that the John Herbert on that line went ot the States, I know this one certainly did not as we can see. He died in Bisley.
John Herbert and Elizabeth Bucknells children were : Daniel Herbert born 1816 in Swindon (there is a christening record for this but it is dated June1810 which must be a typing error or the wrong person - I was wondering about Swindon!! Or John would have only been 11 or 12 when his son was born!)
Mary Herbert born 1819 in Bisley. Eliza born 1830 in Bisley. Alfred born either 1832 in Oakridge or 1834 in bisley.
I am hoping there is someone out there who recognies this John Herbert. Look forward to hearing from anyone who can help.
