Hello Penelope,

I don't know if you got to the library to look at the IGI, but the marriage of
William TIMSON and Sarah FELPTS on 8 Mar 1849 is in there.

Other Harrold entries are:

Rachel TIMSON d. of Edward and Mary TIMSON bapt. 1 Jun 1746
Susan TIMSON d. of Edward and Mary TIMSON bapt 1 Jun 1746
William TIMSON s. of Edward and Mary TIMSON bapt 25 Dec 1747
Mary TIMSON d. of Edward and Mary TIMSON bapt. 29 Oct 1749
Martha TIMSON d. of Sarah TIMSON bapt. 1 Jul 1770

Edward TIMSON m. Mary MOOR13 Oct 1745
Mary TIMSON m. John GOODMAN16 Apr 1772
Mary TIMSON m. Thomas GOODMAN30 Apr 1772
Catherine TIMSON m John ROBINSON17 Oct 1782
Jane TIMSON m. Henry CROUCH13 Dec 1850

There were no Harrold born TIM(P)SONs in the 1881 census for Bedfordshire.

The Bedfordshire Poor Law Papers show a Susannah TIMSON of Harrold who was
removed from Newton Blossomville in Buckinghamshire back to Harrold in 1783

I hope this helps,

I have just joined the Bedfordshire Mailing List. I have checked the
surname list for any TIMPSON researchers but without luck.

I am interested in the name TIMPSON anywhere/anytime but at the moment am
concentrating on TIMPSONs originating in Bedfordshire.

I have two TIMPSONs - William b. abt 1823 and John b. abt 1850 at Harrold,
Bedfordshire. Does anyone have either of these in their family? Does
anyone have access to parish registers/IGI which might show them or their
families - if I can get to the library tomorrow I shall look at the
Bedfordshire IGI to see if I can find them.

William TIMPSON's wife, Sarah, (bn abt 1828) was also born in Harrold, Beds
and Matilda, wife of John TIMPSON, was born in Poddington, Beds.

The other TIMPSON I would like to find is Betsy (or Betsey or Elizabeth)
born about 1814.

Keeping my fingers crossed,
