Recently I have become stuck with the main branch of my family research and so with the great help of a 4th cousin once removed I have investigated the Fulchers who lived mostly in Occold, Suffolk. The research carried out by my cousin was above and beyond the call of duty as the Fulchers are not even related to her!
If you have any comments please e-mail me - Valerie Stevenson - firstname.lastname@example.org
All births, christenings, burials took place in Occold unless otherwise stated. For the purpose of identifying the era of people I have taken a person's age as approximately 20 years before the birth of their first child. Also I have taken their date of birth as the month in which they were christened. This allows me to know at a glance whether a person was christened. If I have the information about a person's age from a census I have given their age as Abt.
The tree starts with Thomas Fulcher who married Mary. He was born before 1728. We have found four of their children:
|William||1748-1828||who married three times and I am descended from his third wife|
|Richard||September 1751||No further information|
|Mary||June 1752||No further information|
|Elizabeth||February 1755||Married John Runacres
October 1782 no further information
William's first marriage was to Elizabeth? who was born before 1754 and died July 1791. They had the following children
|Elizabeth||January 1774||No further information|
|Mary||February 1776||No further information|
|Sarah||December 1781||No further information.|
William's second marriage was to Isabella Cunningham who was born before 1758 in Syleham. They married 6 July 1792 and she died October 1793. A short marriage. They had one child James who was born February 1793 and died January 1876.
Isabella had previously been married to James Sevil on 17 November 1778 in Syleham. They had four children. James - January 1779, Lydia - November 1870, Susan - June 1782, Clemency - May 1785. Clemency had a child born in 1816 and then married John Everson in 15 June 1822. This will further complicate the family tree as a Mary Fulcher married an Edward Everson in October 1854 and are my great great grandparents.
William obviously liked to be married and married Elizabeth Perkins on 7 September 1794, 11 months after the death of wife number 2. She was born in 1763 and died in 1823, five years before the death of William.
Elizabeth had previously been married to Thomas Perkins who died in June 1790. They had two children, Mary May 1784 and Phoeby December 1786.
William and Elizabeth Perkins produced six children.
|Noah||1795-1879||Married Elizabeth Bolton|
|Eleanor||1797||No further information|
|Hannah||March 1799||No further information|
|John||March 1800||No further information|
|Charles||August 1802||No further information|
|John||January 1804||Married Sarah Crowe|
