Parker Family Connections to Bedingfield, Suffolk ?

 

While researching my possible 19th century relatives of the Parker family living in Bradford, West Yorkshire I was surprised to find that the earliest actually may have come from Bedingfield in Suffolk.

Even though the 1881 Census clearly stated that Isaac Parker was from Bradford, the previous one (1871) gave his birth place as Bedingfield, Suffolk. According to the marriage certificate for Isaac Parker and Catherine Cosgrove (Nov 1861), Isaac was aged 35 (so born 1826) and the son of David Parker.

Checking further it became clear that there were many families that had moved from Suffolk to West Yorkshire by 1881.

Even just amongst the Parker families in 1881 we have - Benjamin (b 1839 Bedingfield), Isaac (b 1821 Little Stonham), David (b 1846 Eyre), Alfred (b 1849 Bangay), Joseph (b 1849 Capel), Richard A (b 1855 Whickhom Skeith) and Daniel (b 1856 Washbrook) - all living in the industrial centres of Yorkshire.

Not knowing anything of the Suffolk families the first approach was to get copies of the census entries covering the apparent birth place of Isaac -

Update: All of the census details have since been put online - but I have left the records here for the benefit of those that do not have access. I have, however, removed the list of BMD entries since these are now available online without subscription.

Trying to find a suitable Parker family (containing David or Isaac) in Bedingfield from 1841 onwards has had no success. Another but less reliable method is to try to find a Parker family where the names David / Isaac are found. This idea relies on the habit of some families of repeating the same names over many generations.

One possibility is the family of Isaac Parker linked to Debenham, Suffolk and West Yorkshire -

So despite various approaches to the problem - and the much increased volume of family history material online - there is still no sign yet of any likely David Parker or Isaac in the Bedingfield area of Suffolk. Perhaps it was all a “wild goose chase” and Isaac was from Bradford after all?

Any clues anybody? Also there are many gaps in the 20th Century records that someone could have links to. Send me an e-mail if you think you do.
