Descendants of John Muckleston

Generation No. 1

1.JOHN1 MUCKLESTON died 29 Sep 1762 in St Andrew, Holborn, London (bur).


I have assumed this to be the name of Johns father as John, Ann and children were living at Grays Inn Lane and shortly after this gentleman dies they move to Tash Street Holborn where this John had died!



Generation No. 2

2.JOHN2 MUCKLESTON (JOHN1)He married ANN/[--?--]/.


Could this be the same John and Ann who had a daughter in Congerstone Leicestershire?

Could Rowland born 1763/4 also be one of their children?

Is this the John and Ann who died in Harlington in 1814 and 1815 - if so they were born circa 1728 and 1730 respectively.

or John who died in Aveley Essexon 5 dec 1779?

Notes for JANE/[--?--]/:

did she remarry in 1824 to Thomas Parker?

Interestingly Banns were read for the marriage of Jane Muckleston and Thomas Parker on 7th, 14th, and 21st January 1821 they were both widows. However, it was more than 3 years later on 4th April 1824 that the marriage took place at St Lukes Church, Old Street, Islington, London. The witnesses were Thomas Roberts and John Goodey.

Need to check marriage is correctly allocated - event took place but is this the correct John Muckleston

A sussanah muckleston was a witness to this wedding so need to check if there is another family to whom this marriage belongs

If the wedding is correct the following information is appropriate

Bachelor and spinster. Married by Banns.

Witnesses Sussanah Mucklestone and Charles Atlee

On 1st May 1791at St Mary Ealing Ann Mucklestone married John Pierce and their witnesses were Richard Pierce and William Atlee. 43 years later in the same church John Mucklestone married Elizabeth Ann Elizabeth Brice their witnesses were Susannah Mucklestone and Charles Atlee. Is this an aunt and nephew who have close connections to the Atlee family?

Think this is incorrectly allocated as there was a 5 year old John Muckleston buried at Spa Fields City of London on 1st Feb 1818.


Baptism: 02 May 1813, St Luke, Islington

xi.ELIZABETH ANN MUCKLESTON, m. EDWARD SAUNDERS, 25 Jun 1825, St Luke Old street Finsbury London.


need to confirm she is his daughter. (Chiswick connection)

In Pallots marriage index she is given as of Chiswick - a spinster. They were married by licence and the witness was John Muckleston. She may be the daughter of Jonathon William Muckleston!
