DNA Research Notes

Research note Re DNA test(s): Email sent to April BECKETT - You and I have a DNA match. You have BECKETT from Woodton in your tree, as do I. I have researched most people named BACKETT in and around the area, so I have records that are yet to be connected into my actual ancestors named BECKETT.

On your ancestry tree you have John BECKETT and Lydia ROBERTS as the father of Selim, with no ancestor details for John.

I believe your John was Chr in Shotesham 17th Aug 1784, son of John BECKETT (1755-1835) and Sarah BUCK.

John left a Will, copy on Norfolk Sources.
Beneficiaries are : Sarah, his wife. She was also the sole executor
Property and Goods mentioned: Cottages etc in Topcroft and elsewhere, working implements
Witnesses are: William READ, Alice READ and William REDGRAVE

I have parents for John, even though I have not found his Chr record. There is a great Uncles Will.

SO - John b c1755 was the s of John BECKETT born 1724, died before 1799. This death again
proven by an entry in his brother Thomas' Will.

John who was Chr 26th Fen 1724 in Hedenham was the s on Edward BECKETT and Esther LEGATT.

Edward was born before 1690 and died 1735 or 1736 in Hedenham.

There is nothing in what follows that leads me to believe this is where our connection lies. I am including this info just in case you recognize anything. I will continue to compare out trees after I send this off, and will contact you again if I spot anything likely.

My Norfolk BECKETT connections (found so far) are -

(1) Frederick George BECKETT who married into my ancestral line in 1891 in Great Yarmouth. His ancestors are in great Yarmouth by 1785

(2) Harry A BECKETT similar to above, date of marriage was 1915. I have no details of his family before his marriage.

(3) Frederick Sylvester BECKETT similar to above. Marriage was in Great Yarmouth 1910. He is from the same family as (1).

(4) Leslie Herbert BECKET similar to above. Marriage was 1940 in Norwich. I have no further details of Leslie's ancestors
proven' by an entry in his borther Thomas' Will.

John who was Chr 26th Fen 1724 in Hedenham was the s on Edward BECKETT and Esther LEGATT.

Edward was born before 1690 and died 1735 or 1736 in Hedenham.

There is nothing in what follows that leads me to believe this is where our connect lies. I am including this info just in case you recogise anything. I will continue to compare out trees after I send this off, and will contact you again if I spot anything likely.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: Diana's children before they married have 'Beckett' as middle names, so I have assumed they are Salem's, even though he is not named in the PR.
