    These two are also a bit suspicious.....
    Thos Osborne 13/1/1744 Uffington Lincoln to Jarvis and Mary
    Anne Osborne 28/11/1742 ditto.
    As Gervase and Mary Forster married in 1739 seems these might also be theirs. Uffington within about 10 miles or so of Nassington.
    Jarvis Osborn May 1716 Uffington. Parents Thomas and Elizabeth.

    Ooh, that's a good spot, Sue, because there are no baptisms for any children of Jervis (or variants) & Mary OSBORN (or variants) at Nassington that I could find. Nor could I find a baptism for any Jervis on either the Northamptonshire Index or the Rutland cd's I have. Another county to add to your list, Eve.

    Bit more information about the Jervis OSBORN in Market Overton via Ancestry:

    7 May 1754 an Apprenticeship Indenture wherein Thos BALL of Market Overton, Rutland, Butcher, took as an apprentice Jervas OSBORNE.

    Burial on 4 June 1789 at Market Overton of Jervas OSBORNE, aged 48, therefore he was born c1741 which fits in beautifully with the marriage at Nassington in 1739 doesn't it. All we have to do is find his baptism!

    Revisiting my original post including the above - I am reminded that Gervace's (spell it how you like!) son Robert my decendant (via a couple of lines and marriages) was baptised in 1758 in Essendine, as @Archie's Mum and @janetbooth have also found So maybe the marriage to Mary Fuller/Forster in 1739 in Nassington could be what I'm looking for? We don't know when she died yet. or unless he married Miss Mantle 3 years "late" 0r could he have squeezed in another Mary in between......

    We may be looking at 2 different Gervase/Jervis here. Mary Mantell/Mantel born 29/4/1735 to Thomas and Elizabeth. (Sorry another Thomas and Elizabeth pairing) Market Overton. If what Janet has surmised is correct then our Gervase/Jervis was born around 1741 and married Mary in 1761. Mary being about 5-6 years his senior.
    Jervis Osborn + Mary Forster/Fuller 1739
    Gervase/Jervis Osborn + Mary Mantle 1761.......is this the son of Jervis and Mary Forster/Fuller?
    So Robert may be the son of Jervis and Mary Forster. :confused:

    OK might be back to the drawing board on this one. I think you are right Sue quite possibly two different families. Market Overton Bishops Transcripts throws up a burial for a Robert Osborn son of Jervas and Mary on 6th Feb 1776.....so not mine as my Robert's son Jarvis was born in 1801 (in Nassington)

    Market Overton Robert was seemingly baptised on the 26th March 1775 parents consistent as Jervas & Mary although surname Osbourne with a "e"

    Also, a Robert OsbournE was buried in Nassington 4th Sepr 1809 - think he could be mine. Also Ancestry have an entry in Death Duty Registers for a Robert OSBORN farmer, Nassington c1810 maybe that might throw up something more.

    Yay 8(:-) happy dance - thanks to the pointers given in the UK Death Duty Registers Index forum on here, I have downloaded the Robert Osborn will and it is indeed him. Also lots of info and lots to read.
    OK, so it doesn't help a lot with the Gervace conundrum but........

    I'm with Sis, woo hoo hoo!! One step at a time, Eve, or some such other platitude. I want it all at once, but then as other half always says, I have no patience whatsoever.
