This is great to hear!!!I was going to write directly to you but your e-address is "hidden"/not posted.
I am the host of this site, but we have not had any new "hits"/posts/info in some time. Many of us on this site are descended from Richard and Sarah who were married in 1779. Do you have their marriage page from the parish book? We have that as well as that Richard's father's marriage page - he was Wm Darwood, he and Margaret Cooper married July 25, 1745, in Doddington. (I will ask soem of the others if they have John b c 1814/15 on the parish records - they were soemtimes baptized yrs later, though.)
Richard was b c 1754 - was age one yr whne baptized Sept 21, 1755 in Doddington.
Sarah was daughter of John/Jonathon? (Jno. Darwood, Jun.) in Doddington in Sept. 28, 1759. So they were cousins - she is listed on the marriage record as Sarah "Darwood" when all other females have their maiden names listed on that page.
I do not know if we had the Wm b 1787 before you wrote - do you have that parish record page?My David appears to be born c 1780/82 but was not baptized until 1792(in Doddington in Jan) with brother Thomas Darwood who was much younger, according to later info on the census of U K 1841 andDavid's entry in 1850 (U S census) where he states he is 70 yrs of age (?).
We have your John and Ann Cordell's marriage page so knew that a Wm Darwood existed but until now did not have proof he was related directly to this family. It would/did seem likely that Richard would have/name a son Wm as that was his father's name
Your Wm., my David and their younger brother, Thomas had a brother John (b c 1790 - age 9 at baptism) baptized with brothers, Richard (infant? might have died young) and Jacob (age one), in 1799 - on the parish reocrds of Doddington.
Was your Wm the one living in Cahtteris in 1841 on the U K census? Do you have his line mapped out?
I write to two Eng descendants of John Darwood (b c 1790, son of Richard and Sarah). One of them has a brother who is still a Darwood (surname). I live in TX in the US - where do you live, and do you have access to the microfilmed/original Cambs/Hunts parish records?
I have linked that John (b c 1790/listed above) with the Hunts. Darwoods in Ramsey, Upton, etc., some of whom are the ancestors of the ones who came to Washington state in the US c early 1900s.
Please write back at your earliest convenineceto my e-adress below as I am looking forward to corresponding with you - we have no info on the descendants of the other brothers, Jacob and Thomas - as I said Richard (b c 1799) seems to have died young.
