I read a post a while ago about Eliza Oliver/Barratt/Paramore her mother Mary Ann Sellers is an interesting subject the topic said that she married 3 Paramore brothers - I found marriages to William 1859 and George 1864 but to not Henry. She probably just lived with widowed mother Grace Paramore and her younger son Henry in 1871 census. She then married widower Joseph Barratt in 1889. George Paramore died 1868. There was a son George born 1870 and Eliza came along in 1880. Was George Henry's child and was Eliza Joseph Barratt's???

I am researching France/Barratt/Howson/Housman/Gallimore ancestors. I look forward to hearing from anyone who may help. I am a Yorshire woman living in Cornwall now.

Sheffield indexers is a wonderful site and I thank all of you who have added to this resource
Can I offer any help - I am an experienced indexer (family search and free bmd).

Re: France/Barratt/Paramore/Housman

Hi Heather,
One of my ggg grandmothers was Nancy Clarissa France, married Charles Wharton in 1836. I can go back a bit further on her line too if this is the line you're after.

Re: France/Barratt/Paramore/Housman

Nancy Clarissa France - I have tried to find her in parish registers and burials so can you give me a clue who her parents are and I will see if they are in my tree?

Re: France/Barratt/Paramore/Housman

re paramore
From wh at i can see is that george paramore 1870 and elizabeth paramore 1880/81 are
both henrys children
joseph barret and mary an sellers having 1 child harry barret
not sure of the timescale but there is a hellen barret born 1882 died 1882 could be joseph barret and mary ann sellers/parmores first child
not quite sure

Re: France/Barratt/Paramore/Housman

On elizabeth paramores birth certificate b1881 it does not state her father as henry paramore it is left blank
so we are not to sure as to when henry died so was mary ann sellars/paramore pregnant befor then married joseph barratt,
also did not find a marriage for henry and mary ann, maybe they did not bother with her having the paramore name from previous 2 marriages.
