Wish I could afford an Ancestry world wide subscription so I could access them! Can only afford the Canadian edition
Comment by Irene Blackburn on October 3, 2009 at 2:50pm has London Metropolitan Archives marriages and baptisms on its site, they are partially indexed and are a wonderful source. You see the original marriage certificates from the parish registers with the original signatures!

Dennis is the fount of all knowledge when it comes to all matters Wakelin(g), he has an office in his home about 8' square stacked to the ceiling with archives - a visit is an education!

Hi Christopher, youre right, I should have said Essex.
I have Dennis's tree also, and several of the Wakelings from Essex, ended up in Hampshire, Daniel, for instance, b. 1829, son of Giles and Frances. Daniels daughter Mary Ann WAKELING married Reuben BELCHER, my GtGrandfather. James is a common name within the Family, so maybe we meet somewhere down the line......

I am in contact with a Dennis Wakeling @ Rustington who has his direct male line back to 1535 in Essex, which is where the name originates apparently, all other branches and variations in the name come from that area.
My male line going backwards is as follows:
Frank Lewis Wakeling, born 10/03/1927 @ Peckham, Camberwell
Frank Wakeling, born 20/11/1903 @ Nunhead, Southwark - had two brothers & two sisters, full details available - Died Newhaven, East Sussex 30/11/1979
Frederick William Wakeling, born 1867 @ Nunhead, Southwark (Christened 24/10/1867 @ St. Pancras Old Church) - had two brothers and six sisters, names and some details available [brothers emigrated to Canada] - Death Registered @ Camberwell, December 1/4 1942.
James Wakeling, born 15/10/1838 @ Clerkenwell, Middlesex - only one younger brother traced whose descendents lived in Shorditch - Death Registered @ Camberwell, December 1/4 1882
James Wakeling, born St. George in the East, London, 24/06/1793 - one sister and one brother traced - Death Registered @ Holborn, London, September 1/4 1876
Edward Wakeling, born c1771, place unknown. All I know is that his wife's name was Elizabeth (born 1771) and that she came from Cripplegate.
James Wakeling, born c1745, place unknown. Wife's name Jane, born c1747.

I have also traced several of the side shoots, i.e. decendents of various siblings at each generation, which is how I've mamaged so far to gather much of my information through contacts that have emerged as a result. None of them in Hampshire though!

Christopher, do you have any names for your Wakelings? I have lots of them in my tree. Wakelings originated from Hampshire, according to a one name study, but lots of mine ended up in London
Maybe we have some in common

Wakelin(G0 occurs lavishly in Bucks and adjacent Oxon. It is just over the border in the latter county that the beautifully named Mahershalalhashbaz Wakelin is found. I wonder what his friends called him? Ma, or Hash, or even Baz, probably.

Nearly ALL the Tulletts in the south of England originate from one French widow, Ales Toulett, who arrived in Horsham between 1650 and 1665 with her four children. If he/she is interested I could probably trace his/her ancestry back to that individual.
Comment by Lindsey Dedden on September 17, 2009 at 8:43am

I know a Tulllett who origianted from Sussex (Horsham) and now lives in Christchurch - could put you in touch ( I know him through the Royal Bournemouth Hospital. I too live in Dorset)
