Topping

Recommended Posts

Any Topping researchers out there? My own line goes back to the marriage of a Joseph Topping and a Dorothy Williams who married in November 1798. They produced  10 children . The fifth eldest was another Joseph born in 1807 who married an Alice Roughley in 1831.They had 3 boys (plus 4 girls)my great grandfather  John Topping born 1842 being the middle son- the other two were Joseph 1839 and James born 1845.My maternal grandmother Annie Mary Topping born in 1881 was one of the children born to John Topping and Ann Birch.    Tony Beaman

Have you got a tree on Ancestry Tony (public)? There seems to be confusion amongst some tree owners where they have Joseph (1907, son of Joseph T and Dorothy W) as marrying a Mary Fillingham. Most have Alice Roughley though, so that's probably right, but there was a Joseph T who married a Mary F, and it looks as though people are adopting ancestors willy nilly.

Another interesting thing while looking at marriage records for Joseph Topping and Alice Roughley is that there were two marriages with people of the same names in the same month of Feb in 1831. One marriage on the 6th at Portico Our Lady's RC and the other at Prescot St Mary's on the 14th. The Joseph and Mary F that I mentioned married that same year, but on 5th December. It can all be such a quagmire sometimes.

Only just received your message David. I  have trees for Beamans/Blanshards on Ancestry UK- my Topping connection is through the Blanshard line. They should be available to see, I will check. I noticed that there were two marriage   ceremonies for JOseph and Alice . I'm sure its the same couple and thought this happened occasionally.
