Which Elizabeth Suckling is it?

I have 2 Elizabeth Suckling's born in Finchingfield, Essex. 1 in 1763 to Thos and Jane and one in June 1766 to Francis and Mary. Both had sisters called Susan Suckling. One Susan born 1768 (to Thos and Jane) and one Susan in 1770 (to Francis and Mary). I am writing up notes on any other siblings to see which one of the 2 Elizabeth's is mine.

An Elizabeth Suckling, infant was buried in January 1766. No info on parents. But I would hazard a guess as to her being the one born in 1763. Infant can mean under 1 but I have seen many exceptions. If so, then the one baptised in June 1766 should be mine. I have never come across a 3rd Eliz Suckling baptised 1755-1766 in the parish.

Only 1 Elizabeth Suckling married in Finchingfield years later, that is my ancestor, she wed Samuel Stock in 1791. A Susan Suckling wed in 1793 to Robert Sneesham and Samuel Stock was a witness. Susan Sneesham died in August 1815, age given as 47 so born c1768. This means it could be the Susan Suckling born in 1768 to Thos and Jane but ages at death are not always accurate. The Susan born 1770 was baptised May 1770.

My Elizabeth Stock died in August 1825. Age given as 70 so born c1765.

Re: Which Elizabeth Suckling is it?

Just to confuse things even more there is a marriage on FreeReg for a Susannah Suckling to a Robert Tresom 7 May 1793 and Samuel Stock was a Witness.

Do you have names of any children born to either Elizabeth or Susannah? Just thinking they may have named them after their parents.

That is the same marriage. The original says Snesham, which is a slight variant of Sneesham. Only one Susan Suckling married in Finchingfield. They had a daughter Marianne Sneesham but the other 3 was Thomas, John and Samuel.

Samuel and Elizabeth Stock had 3 children called Samuel, Sarah and John. No Francis or Mary or Thomas or Jane. John was born in 1806. If Elizabeth was born in 1763 she'd be 42/43 but if she was born in 1766 she'd have been 40 when she had John.

Re: Which Elizabeth Suckling is it?

Have you seen the image of the original entry for the burial of Elizabeth in January 1766? I only ask because the Church Calendar ran from March to March and on many transcriptions Jan/Feb/Mar can sometimes be put in with the previous year.

If it is definitely Jan 1766 for the burial then it has to be the Elizabeth born 1763 so the 1766 baptism has to be yours. Can't help with Susan though.

The Gregorian Calendar 1 Jan to 31 Dec was first used in 1752 so 14 years before 1766. Elizabeth Suckling was buried 26th January 1766 and was the 3rd burial of 1766. The 1766 burials started in Jan and ended in Dec 1766.

Re: Which Elizabeth Suckling is it?

Just looked at the baptisms and one was baptises Susan and one as Susannah. Don't know if that makes a difference or not as Susan is short for Susannah.

The 1768 one was baptised Susan and the 1770 one Susannah. It was a Susannah Suckling who wed Robert Snesham. She signed the mark of Susannah Suckling. But to add to the confusion, when she died in 1815 she was said to be just Susan Sneesham.

Re: Which Elizabeth Suckling is it?

Do you ever get the feeling that your ancestors are ganging up on you?

I would go with the 1766 one as being my ancestor. The 1763 one is probably the one who died in January 1766 and buried there. The 1766 one baptised was baptised 5 months later.
