Earliest record I have found is for the Baptisms of the children of James and Ann Jakeman of Shutford.They are Ann, Rebecca and William Jakeman.They lived in the Shutford area until they died but probably came from another locality.
William married Sarah Handcock, August 3, 1848 at the Parrish Church Shutford. They raised 7 children, George, John, Susanna, Mary Ann, Elizabeth, William and Adelaide.George emigrated to Woodstock, ON, Canada with his wife Betsy Ann Clifton in 1875.This is my family line.
Another line is from William Jakeman, George's youngest brother, who married Keziah Elizabeth Hicks, March 3, 1894.
If anyone has information that might shed light on the other Jakeman children of William and Sarah please contact me.
I know that Susanna married her neighbour, George White, Feb. 4, 1891 and had a son, Owen born out of wedlock Oct. 27, 1880.
Elizabeth married Joseph Lydiatt iin 1875.I have no other information about these family members
