John CANNING circa 1756 (General)

by jmj9 @, Tuesday, April 02, 2013, 21:30 (2491 days ago)

I know that my ancestor John CANNING (b. 1757 approx) was married to Ann Hewlett (b. 1754 approx) and lived in Frampton on Severn, where he was buried on 25 Jan 1798 aged 41. ( I have details of their children and descendants.) However, I am trying to trace where John Canning (b. 1757) was born, his parents and more information about the marriage to Ann Hewlett. If anyone else in the group is investigating this surname or has come across any other information about this couple, I would be interested to hear from you. Many thanks. Julie Johns

Ann HEWLETT 1754 Frampton on Severn

by jmj9 @, Wednesday, April 03, 2013, 10:44 (2491 days ago) @ slowhands

Thanks slowhands.

The only other Canning that comes up connected with St.Mary de Lode Church (where John & Ann married under licence. Her name appeas as Nancy.) is Robert Canning (a widow from Hartpury) marrying Maria Cheston on 19 July 1826. I'm presuming he may be one of the Canning family from Hartpury/Foxcote - although I have never found any evidence to suggest my family are connected to them (other than sharing surname). However, I have found it difficult to locate a family tree for the Hartpury/Foxcote Cannings to verify this.

Also does anyone know about the the College Precincts to Gloucester Cathedral and who used to live there (i.e. would the Cathedral records contain any interesting information) please? ( I live outside the area.)

I've also now discovered there was a Charles Edward Canning who got married in Frampton on Severn in 1914, so will check his family back to see if it links up with mine.

"COLLEGE PRECINCTS, an extra-parochial place in the city of Gloucester, in the county of Gloucester." i.e. an area outside an specific Parish like areas of the FoD, although in this case is more likely to be very close to the Cathederal.


GLOUCESTER, a city, an inland port, the head of a union, and a county of itself, locally in the hundred of Dudstone and King's-Barton, E. division of the county of Gloucester, 34 miles (N. N. E.) from Bristol, and 107 (W. N. W.) from London, on the road to South Wales; containing, with the College Precincts, which are extraparochial, 14,152 inhabitants.

Robert CANNING circa 1775 living Hartpury

by jmj9 @, Wednesday, April 03, 2013, 13:42 (2491 days ago) @ slowhands

I'll take a browse throught that. Based on my John Canning (buried in Frampton on Severn), the only two births I've managed to find online that are roughly around correct date for him are:
John Canning baptised in Idlicote, Warks to John & Susan (Susannah?) Canning
John Canning baptised Clifford Chambers, Gloucestershire 3.8.1755 son of Jon Canning & Hannah Canning.

There is also one baptised around 1750 to Francis & Mary Canning in Ilmington - who I have a feeling are linked to Foxcote.

Think I'll have to see if I can make any other connections to get to the bottom of this.
Thanks for your help.

Ilmington / Foxcote

by slowhands, proud of his ancient Dean Forest roots, Wednesday, April 03, 2013, 13:52 (2491 days ago) @ jmj9

ILMINGTON


Acreage: 3,325.
Population: 1911, 576; 1921, 536; 1931, 531.
Until 1931 this parish formed the centre of a detached portion of the county of Warwick surrounded on the north and east by Worcestershire and on the west by Gloucestershire. In that year, however, the intervening Worcestershire parishes were annexed to Warwickshire. Ilmington is a long narrow parish, 4 miles from north to south with a breadth varying from less than a mile up to 2 miles. The ground is very hilly, rising from 225 ft. in the north where the road from Stratford-on-Avon to Chipping Campden enters the parish to 833 ft. where the same road crosses the southwestern boundary.

In this high ground of the Ilmington Downs are several quarries, formerly worked both for building stone and road metal. Between the Downs and the village Nebsworth Hill is crossed by a track, known as Pig Lane, which may have been used in Roman times to connect the Ricknield Street and the Fosse Way. A little north of, and below, this track is a small rectangular earthwork which has been considered a Roman camp but is more probably medieval. (fn. 1)

Half a mile due south of this is the hamlet of Foxcote, lying in a hollow with Windmill Hill to the east of it. A windmill belonging to the manor is mentioned as early as 1295 (fn. 2) and as late as 1697. (fn. 3) The southern extremity of the parish is occupied by the hamlet of Compton Scorpion.

From: 'Parishes: Ilmington', A History of the County of Warwick: Volume 5: Kington hundred (1949), pp. 98-103. URL: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=57050 Date accessed: 03 April 2013.

•"ILMINGTON, a parish comprising the small hamlet of Lark-Stoke in the upper division of the hundred of Kiftsgate, county of Gloucester, but chiefly in a detached part of the Kington division of the hundred of Kington, county of Warwick, 4 miles (N.W. by W.) from Shipston upon Stour".

Thanks. I also need to check out why they named their daughter Esther Verny Canning. I know that Daniel & Elizabeth Hewlett had a daughter called Esther, as well as Ann...but need to find out where the Verny name might fit in.

CANNING - married by Licence

by m p griffiths @, Wednesday, April 03, 2013, 15:08 (2491 days ago) @ jmj9

In the Miscellaneous downloads - Marriage Banns (sample 2) - is copy of my x Grandfather's Marriage Licence - 1777

As a Licence gives more information i.e. age, status, occupation, Parish where he came from - some of this information does not appear on his parish entry marriage (the next day). Perhaps John CANNING's licence would also give more information.

Thanks -I'll try locating the licence.

John CANNING circa 1756

by jmj9 @, Tuesday, September 22, 2015, 20:05 (1588 days ago) @ jmj9

During the summer someone kindly emailed me some suggestions to investigate about a Canning who was employed in the Forest of Dean. Unfortunately, I am unable to locate this email now, so would be grateful if the sender could re-contact me. My Canning relatives were based in Bristol post-1800, but I know that John Canning married in Gloucester & subsequently lived in Frampton-on-Severn - so mainly intrested in pre-1800 ancestors (or any descendants from to Canning/Hewlett marriage). Thanks.

Many thanks for this. This is the my ancestor & I have a copy of this document, however, I have been struggling to find a record of his birth in the area - or the John Canning (s) I have found in Gloucestershire/Warkwickshire/Forest of Dean have not been specific enough to make a conclusive connection.I think the person who contacted me in the summer was to inform me about some Canning(s) being employed on an estate somewhere - although it may have been in C19th rather than C18th. I have worked out the descendants of John and Nancy (also known as Ann) who lived in Frampton on Severn after their marriage, but at brick wall going further back. Anyone aware of any records relating to Yeoman that might provide leads please? I know John Canning and Ann Hewlett's son John was a cooper in Newent in 1799 and later moved to Bristol. Also have some good leads on Ann Hewlett's ancestors (Verney/Longney etc), but still struggling to confirm father of John Canning born in 1750s.
