Joseph Elcock and Rachel Sims


There is an entry in the IGI indices for the marriage og a Joseph Elcock and a Rachel Sims on the 14th Novemeber 1777 in Hursley.

Husband:   Joseph Elcock

Born: 1738


Wife:   Rachel Sims

Born: 1740


Male  Child 1:   Jacob Elcock

Born: 1787
Died: 1833
Spouse: Hannah Jacobs
Children: John Elcock

Occupation: Baker
Records kept by Tylee Mortimer and Attlee of Romsey, solicitors, seem to suggest that Jacob Elcock died in 1833.

I have a copy of the will now, which despite being very hard to read, does seem to suggest Jacob was a baker as well.

The will records that Jacob was a baker from Hursley, Hampshire. His wife Hannah and son John are both mentioned as benefactors in the will.
