Part 554tw – Smith Robertson Genealogy – 1769 Marriage – GGGGG-Grandparents John and Mary (née Whittaker) Tasker

12 August 2011


My work on my family genealogy and research continues.

Today I have the original source from the St. Leonard’s Church Parish Register of the 1769 Marriage Registration. It is the “Banns of Marriage between” John Tasker and Mary Whittaker. John and Mary (née Whittaker) Tasker are, I believe, the parents of gggg-grandmother Isabella (née Tasker) Kendal. In turn John and Mary Tasker would have been my 5-times great-grandparents.

The image is of the page from the Parish Registers for Downham, 1653-1900, Item 9 of the microfilm FHL [1278942].

Praise be for the Derivative source as presented in Part 551tw.

Here is my Kendalls, Parkers & Taskers… Ancestry Work Sheet to put everything into my perspective.

Stay tuned. Who knows who will appear next?
