Wiliam married Sarah BEECHY in 1858, John married Dorcas HAINES in 1854, Frederick married Maria JAMES in 1868 and Edwin married Jane COX, year unknown. All marriages were in the Shipston area (Blockley). Their parents were probably Joseph and Sarah (nee HALLOWAY) NOBES, and their paternal grandparents were just possibly Thomas and Catherine (nee WINTER) NOBES. I am in contact with descendants of a John NOBBS who married Sarah MASON in 1829 at Blockley, the surname spelling seems to have alternated between NOBES and NOBBS in the early 19th century.

Hilary Bracewell. Sarah from Blockley... born 1785ish... married William COTTERILL of Mollington Ox. They ran the Jug in Hand Radway Wks. Died Radway 1851. Looking for Sarah's maiden name
Anne Berresford. Researching the BALDWIN, LYNE, MACE & MASON families. James LYNE of Ilmington married and had 3 chilldren b Blockley or Shipston depending on which census. William about 1821, Jemima about 1824 and Mary about 1826. He also had 2 children born London: Eliza b1831 and James about 1833. Jemima married William MASON, Blockley 1844. Eliza married Henry MACE, Blockley 1851. I don't know who his wife was. I would be interested in any information. She must have died because in 1838, James LYNE (widower) married Jane BALL in Blockley (father John). James and Jane LYNE had a daughter Anne, born Blockley 1840. On the birth certificate Anne's mother was Jane BALDWIN. On 1841 census, Elizabeth BALDWIN 75yr was living with the family. Jane BALDWIN bap Blockley 1804, mother Elizabeth and father John. I think there may have been an error on the marriage entries.
