Hi Linda, Sorry about that. must have touched the wrong button!!! I have had another look at my notes on Richard, and now I'm not sure that I gave you the right one. As I said there were 4 brothers from Broseley who came to Bedworth/Foleshill in the mid 1700s. There was William who married Mary Williams in Broseley in 1739, and came to Bedworth between 1742 and 1745; Thomas who married Ann Banks in Broseley in 1741 and came to Bedworth about the same time. They had 2 sons baptised Richard, the first born in 1753 died in 1754, and the second baptised in Foleshill in 1759. Although most of their children were baptised in Bedworth, the register says that the parents were "of Foleshill". Then there was Richard who married? an Elizabeth, but I haven't found the marriage. They had children baptised in Bedworth and Foleshill starting in 1757. They had a son Richard baptised in 1763, and finally there was the Job I mentioned in the last e-mail.
Now, I have found 3 marriages of Richard Millerchips in that area, The Richard who married Elizabeth Barkbey in 1787, A Richard who married Catherine Moore also in Exhall in 1784 and the Richard who married Frances Williams in Bedworth 17 1793. I am now inclined to think that this latter was the Richard who was the son of Job and Elizabeth as Richard and Frances were the only ones of the three who had a son Job!!Confused!!! so am I !!!! If the birth date of 1756 on the IGI has any validity it would suggest that your Richard was the son of Thomas and Ann. I need to write up what I have on the Millerchips and may find something else, if so I'll let you know.
Yes John Millichap married? Newall Benbowe. There is no trace of the marriage. They may have married in Benthall which is adjacent to Broseley but the marriage register at that time is rather sparse. A fellow Millerchip descendant had a professional researcher search for the marriage but he couldn't come up with anything, and we cannot come up with John Millichap's origins. I have a copy of an "admonition " when Newalls's father died intestate. This mentions two John Millichaps. One is "the younger, yeoman of Benthall" who is her husband, the other "the elder" is said to be a "milner" of Clee St. Margaret. I assume that this is her father in law, but we can't find him in the registers. (this would be about the time of the civil war and registers weren't always kept.)
