Research Notes

Two marriages found for a Thomas Gilkes in Moreton Pinkney:

"Northamptonshire Marriages", Moreton Pinkney Parish, Cold Higham, Thomas Gilkes and Elizabeth Davis, 8 Nov 1812: online database Find My Past. Website Accessed 2 Sept 2018

Provo, UT, USA: Operations, Inc., 2014.

Which leads to the question of whether there are two contemporaneous Thomas Gilkes in Moreton Pinkney, and if so, which passed away in 1841?

There are two wives Elizabeth Davies died 1814 and I haven’t found a birth certificates between her marriage of 1812 until her death two years later. The first child is born 1817 and Barbara Edmonds is the Mother of all the children that followed her marriage to him in 1815. I will need to get my records and cite them. Eventually I will have a link to this common ancestor. DNA results from my Father on Ancestry and several matches link him to this Thomas Gilkes. I find gathering the records and typing them manually painstaking.
