I am searching for birth date around 1709 of Robert Church . The Clare records ds seem unreadable at around that time. Has anyone any ideas about how to proceed or to find out anything before Robert left Clare to marry in London? His father was David Church of little Saxham who married Elizabeth Chaplin in Pakenham.

Hello! My name is Michael Rushing. My mother-in-law did an extensive genealogy study on my paternal family lineage. She provided me an 60+ page document which traces my ancestry to a William Rushing, born in 1505 in the Town of Clare, Suffolk, England. I would love to find out if there are any Rushing's that still reside in Clare and maybe start a pen-pal relationship. Of course, I am assuming the genealogy results are relatively accurate. I was really exciting to learn about and trace my family's past. My step-daughter is currently studying at Sheffield University in Sheffield, England so I do plan to make a trip to Clare in the future. Any information or feedback is appreciated. Best regards, Mike Rushing

My GG Grandfather was William Peacock, baptised in Clare on Jul 13 1815.Father John Peacock , mother Elizabeth Potter. I believe that he lived in Chilton St. There was a survey done in Chilton in the very early 1800s, but I have lost the details. If anyone can assist with details of the family I would be grateful. John & Elizabeth are buried in Clare Churchyard

Hello I have just found this site. I have traced one of my lines back to Clare. My 5th Gt grandmother was born here. She is Martha Webb of Thomas Webb and she married William Crick of Cockfield in 1775. I cannot trace her baptism, but Ipswich Record Office found the reference to her baptism for me. I love to write a story of each of my family members and would love to find out more about the Webb family of Clare. Anyone who could help??

Looking for info on the Wallett family my 5 times great Grandmother was Elizabeth Wallett of Long Sutton the daughter of Vicar Abraham Wallett of Clare and Mary Mumby/Momby. Elizabeth married a Thomas Garner and had many children I descend from Mary Garner b1801 Long Sutton. I have just downloaded the will of James Wallett the father of Abraham Wallett but is very hard to understand old calligraphy writings. I know there is a Hilary also searching the same family but I can't seem to find her.

I only just noticed that someone called Steve posted on here last year in relation to the Hickford family. He talked about my grandmother (my father's mother) Geraldine Grace Wickham who married my grandad who was Walter Edward Hickford. I did not know my grandfather as he died one year after I was born in 1954 and I don't remember him. I wonder if Steve could get in touch as he seemed to have been able to trace the family back a bit further than me.

Jay Family in Stoke by Clare
I am interested in finding living Jay surnamed males to participate in an ongoing Jay Family DNA project. It will be 1) free of cost to the participants 2) painless and 3) advance the understanding of Jay family ancestry in both the UK an the US.
I am a past President of the Jay Family Association in the US. Our organization consists of approximately 120 Jay family researchers and family enthusiasts. We also have an active JAY DNA project that has tested about 40 Jay surnamed males in the US. Between research and DNA testing....we have identified about 14 distinct colonial US Jay family lines...i.e. Jay lines that migrated to America between 1650-1776. Unfortunately, none of the immigrant ancestors of any of those 14 lines (save that of the famous 1st Chief Justice of the US, John Jay) have been identified.
It seems that most of these lines emanate out of England...but we have no connection (or family links) for members to follow into the UK. However, there are undoubtedly current living JAYs in England that descend from some of the same ancestors as these US colonial lines. i.e. Jay ancestors from the 1500-1700 timeframe produced descendants that currently live in both the US and England....different branches of the same line. In those cases, the DNA of those males will match.
Background of an example I posted to another Suffolk board.....
John Jay, born in England about 1630, aligned himself with the Society of Friends (Quakers) and migrated to Barbados circa 1655. He died about 1674 on the island. His descendants migrated to New Jersey in the US about 1700. In his Barbados will...he gives monies to relatives and the poor in Stoke by Clare, Suffolk and Ballington, Essex. I can see from further research there were numerous Jay families (perhaps all connected) in the River Stour valley between Stoke by Clare and Ballington, Essex just SW of Sudbury in Suffolk. Perhaps many of these Jays have a common ancestor to John Jay of Barbados who willed monies to the poor in these very specific areas.
I am working under the assumption (perhaps incorrect but to be tested) that the Jay families in this close-knit area, all descend from a common group. As such, the likely-hood of there being a DNA match will be high. I will also surmise that John Jay of Barbados, based on the name places in his will, came from this area also.
With that said, I would like to 1) identify living Jay males in the area 2) contact them and explain why I would like to fund having them participate in a Jay Family DNA project. This would be paid for by our association/third parties and the information could be very valuable in tying families together.
Please email me if you have questions, are interested in working with us on this project or know of a Jay surnamed male who might be interested in donating a sample (simple cheek swab).

I'm trying to trace members of my extended family who we have lost contact with, and have traced a great aunt - Georgina Mary Hughes (nee Cree,) - who lived in Clare during the 1950s. Probate records show that she died a widow in August 1954 and that her address at the time was listed as the Bell Hotel, Clare. I don't know how long she lived there, but family legend has it that there was a fire at the Hotel during which family portraits were destroyed. However, I have not been able to verify this. The probate records (granted in September 1954,) refer to 2 married daughters: - Josette Ina Wallis and Elizabeth Mabel Maclean. Any information would be most welcome - my e-mail address is email@example.com

I'm researching the family of my 8th Great Grandfather John Martin who married Mary Barker in Clare 1671. They had two children, John & Mary. John married [1st] Mary Perry on 3rd May 1693 and [2nd] Elizabeth Jay on 27th Jan 1706. Between them they had ten children, many of whom survived in adulthood and had families of their own in Clare. I'm particularly interested in Thomas Martin [1718 -1782] who was born in Clare and married Elizabeth Deeks of Belchamp St Paul on 15th Feb 1743.

Hi everyone, message for Jivexx (and anyone else who may be able to help or is interested) I'm researching family name Hickford and am fairly confident that I've traced back to William Hickford 1801 - 1872 from Chapel Road / Chapel Street Clare who married Mary ? born about 1802, my GGGG grandfather. Son Benjamin (died young) (1827-1855) who married Emma Woolard (1827 - 1880), son Walter 1851 - ? who married Emma, had a son Walter (1878-1910) who married Janet Mary Beck (b 1876 - ?) to my grandfather Edward Walter (1898 - 1955) who married Georgina Grace Wickham (1900 - 1976). I've yet to visit Clare to check parish records but from census returns it seems that in the early 19th century Clare was a hot spot for Hickfords who were invariably agricultural labourers with huge families. If anyone can shed any detail on the Hickford tribe and especially if you can help me go back any earlier than 1800 I'd be very grateful. I will make a point of visiting the village and surrounds soon especially as the 19th century houses all seem to still be there (from a virtual drive through on Google Earth). I'm happy to share what I have with anyone who needs it
