Not sure if you misunderstood my original query. My question was not concerning Samuel Luke's children, but his aunts and uncles!
Mary Fildes (formally Pritchard) who was Samuel Luke's grandmother was very involved in politics.Her husband was William Fildes.These facts are all over the internet and in history books - Peterloo, etc.
She named at least two of her sons after political figures - this too is documented in historical books.Henry Hunt Fildes and John Cartwright Fildes. I know that Samuel's father was called James Fildes and that Samuel himself had a son called James Washington Fildes so it could be that Mary's son was also called James Washington Fildes? I have got back to a point in my tree and can get no further.
My earliest Fildes is Thomas Paine Fildes b c 1817 (from census information).I have his marriage certificate and other evidence and know I can prove I am descended from him.His father is listed as William Fildes (Reedmaker) on his marriage certificate. My query was - does anyone know what the names of other children of Mary and William Fildes were? We already have James Fildes (Samuel Luke's father), John Cartwright Fildes and Henry Hunt Fildes.Other trees posted on the internet also add a Sarah and a Robert.I was wondering if anyone knew any others and if Thomas Paine Fildes could be her son too - this would make him Samuel Luke's uncle, not one of his children. I realise many people want to link themselves to his family but I came across this by accident.My great uncle before he died mentionned a "Sir" in the family but we only recently came across the notes I made when we met with him before he died. If you did have any information to help me it would be appreciated.
