Re: Richard Fox born 1875

John, I have looked for a burial of Ann Woodcock, 1784-5, not found.

CORRECTION: Sheffield Archives ref for bap. of Mary Hobson should be PR-73-2-1

I forgot to give you the marriage of John W. and Mary Ann Selwood:
FMP Yorkshire marriages:
John Woodcock (X), Ba, otp
Mary Ann Selwood (X), Sp, otp
6 May 1825, banns, Sheffield, St Peter

FMP Yorkshire baptisms:
Mary Ann Sellwood 10 Apr 1796 Willm Hanh Blacksmith Sheffield, St Peter
ref: PR-138-2-2

Sellwood/Addy marriage at Mexborough 28 Mar 1785, 3 baptisms there, then 7 at Sheffield.
After Mary Ann, William changed from Blacksmith to Edge Tool Maker, which is what James became.
(Some confusion over the transcription of the correct baptism dates at Mexborough, the clerk appears to have headed one page incorrectly.)
William & Hannah Selwood appear to have been buried at Tinsley in 1845 & 1846.

Hope you've finished dusting!
Regards, Sally

Re: Richard Fox born 1875

John, No sorry I haven't, only JunQ 1855. I have not found baptisms for any of this family so assume church(s) or dates not yet indexed. In that decade they moved from Jericho to Eyre Street but I haven't checked the parish boundaries. Sally
