On 1 July

Hope all Canadians reading this had an enjoyable Canada Day. It was a busy day at Wimbledon, but quiet again in ancestor land.

1 July 1782
Baptism at Worsbrough, Yorkshire of Samuel Cox, son of Joshua Cox with mother not named. I suspect he was the brother of Ann Cox, who married by gggg grandfather Joseph Green. Nothing further found, except there is a Samuel Cox living in Leeds in 1851 with wife Phoebe (no marriage found), with stated birthplace Darfield – which is the next parish to Worsbrough. They are at Back Nile Street, which is now a car park, and he is a pensioner: someone has added what looks like the word Chelsea after that. However, I couldn’t find anything that was obviously him in the army records on FindMyPast. It might not be the right Samuel, though.

1 July 1817
Baptism at Tankersley, Yorkshire of Martha Fisher, daughter of my ggggg uncle Timothy Fisher and his wife Mary Kaye. Nothing else found for her. Her father’s sister, Hannah Fisher, married Joseph Firth whose daughter Sarah married William Green.
