Hello - my paternal grandmother was a Stokes. I have traced back to the birth of Joseph Stokes b.1744 who married Mary Baker in 1771 in Walsall Staffordshire England. Would be very keen to connect with anyone who has Stokes in the Bloxwich area of Staffordshire.
My wife's ancestry includes many Stokes ancestors. Her line in the US begins with Thomas Stokes (1640 Lower Shadwell, Near Stepney, Middlesex, England - 1720 Waterford, Gloucester, New Jersey) & Mary Barnard.
Hi, I've just joined. I've researched my STOKES line back to William STOKES, born 1802 in Derby, Derbyshire and christened in the parish of St Alkmund. His father was Charles and mother was Mary, but I have no further info on either parent as yet. Wm married Mary SUDBURY in 1821, and they had children: (years given are approx) John (1822), Charles (1824), Frances (1826), William (1829), James (1832), Thomas (1835), Alfred (1837) and Mary (known to be 4 Sep 1839). Wm's first wife, Mary, died some time after 1851, and he married Elizabeth MAYER in 1863. They appear in the 1871 census (aged 68 and 38, respectively) in Derby. After that, I lose track of them. I am assuming that Wm died before the 1881 census -- I just haven't found his death yet.
I haven't visited the 'side-shoots' yet, just my main branches. I am descended from Charles (1824), who m Elizabeth HARDY 09 Apr 1843 at St Werburgh, Derby, their son, William, being born that same year in the September, then a son, Charles, in 1845 (who I have not been able to find, subsequently; I assume he died in infancy); then Henry (my direct ancestor) in Manchester in 1860. William had a rather interesting and complicated life: he was aka William Stokes HARDY, comedian/actor/theatrical touring manager, and he appears to have taken part in a wife-swap! Henry, I gather was "red haired and with a temper to match"! He and his parents wound up in Sculcoates, Kingston-upon-Hull, where he married Alice BURTON. They had children: Charles (1885-1848), Clarence (c. 1889) and Dorothy (c.1892). Charles was my grandfather. He married Winifred Ada TURNER in 1907.
I'd be very interested in hearing from anyone who might be a distant cousin, and am more than happy to share the information I have managed to gather to date!
Just joined - my Stokes line starts with Sarah Stokes who married Absolom HURT. Their daughter Nancy Mary Stokes HURT married Samuel USSERY, Jr.
Would like to other STOKES researchers that might be connected to this line.
