    Hello,

    Can anyone provide me with any information on Jesse Thorogood, married 1777 to Sarah Trigg in Shalford? He died there in 1826, if I remember correctly. Primarily interested in birth details, as he was probably from another village.

    Thanks,

    Adam

    Hello Adam,

    Have you investigated the marriage Banns at all? They might give a clue as to which parish the groom came from. :)

    Hello,

    Unfortunately I don't have any access to the record other than knowing when it was.

    Thought I'd mention my Thoro(w)good line, in two generations of my lot the name was spelled Thorogood, Thorowgood, Thirgood and Thurgood in the Parish Registers.

    My ancestors are:-

    John Thorowgood born about 1709, parish unknown but no doubt in the county of Essex.
    John Thorowgood born 1737 Stebbing, baptised Thorowgood married as Thurgood, he married Sarah Parish in 1759 at Felsted, Essex.
    Their daughter Sarah Thurgood (married into my Willis line) was born 1762 in Stebbing, I haven't found any siblings of Sarah's but since Sarah Parish was a widow and 17 years older than John when they married perhaps there were no siblings.

    I recall when researching the Thorowgoods there were plenty in Stebbing so perhaps that Parish would be worth a look, assuming you didn't find Jesse in Shalford.

    Thanks. That at least confirms that he did live in Shalford.

    Burial record at Shalford on 18 June 1826 of Jesse THOROGOOD, aged 75, giving a birthdate of c1751, which could narrow down a search for his baptism (source Ancestry's Select Essex records). However, I cannot find a baptism for Jesse either.
