Thread: Thomas Laycock (1788) and John Laycock (1815)

    Thomas Laycock (1788) and John Laycock (1815)

    Hi all,

    I have been trying to locate 2 of my ancestors Thomas Laycock (1788) and John Laycock (1815)

    Thomas Laycock born abt. 1788
    Married to Elizabeth
    Had 2 sons (that I know of) John Laycock (1815) and Henry Mortimer Laycock (1818)
    Thomas was also a fisherman

    John Laycock born abt. 1815 in Brighton, Sussex
    Married Mary Ann Burfield - 07 August 1845 in Brighton
    He to was a fisherman
    Had 7 children born between 1847 to 1863

    I have johns baptism record and have him on census 1861 onwards. Nothing before as am unable to find him so I wondered if he could possibly have been at sea when 1841/1851 census was taken.

    Thomas I can find no record of anywhere except John and Mary's marriage record and Johns baptism record.

    Would there be any fishing records about and if so how would I go about finding them.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Findmypast have Merchant Navy & Maritime records under Education & work. There's a chance they might be there. There are some Laycocks in the lists.

    We also have a page with maritime sources in our Reference Library: FTF Guide: Maritime History which might be useful.

    This couldn't be them in 1851 could it with all the ages out? John would have been 4, not 14 and the parents should be 38 and 31 hmmm - it's the only one I could find that was close ish!

    This looks like the daughter Mary Ann with grandparents in 1951 - https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...ing%3DMary%2BA

    Sorry, I see that the first John had died aged 0. So not them.

    its really strange that I cannot find them on either 1841 or 1851 census. on other census records and baptism it says john was born in brighton yet can find nothing until 1861

    There's a Thomas Laycock buried 22nd Nov 1831 at St Nicholas, Brighton of Duke's Court, age 50. The age is a bit out but it depends on the informant knowing the correct age.

    No, I found it on the Sussex Family History Group members only pages, but I think the parish record images can be found on familysearch, you just have to create a free account.
