DEAR TOM

Explore the serious, sublime and the ridiculous facets of family history in this genealogical miscellany. This issue, Tom Wood considers a wonderful array of same-named children through successive generations of different readers’ families

The name game Little did I realise what a huge response there would be to my request in July Dear Tom to hear about families who repeated Christian names through the generations. Emails flew into Family Tree and the postmen were kept busy with your letters, so it seems many of your families did share sometimes unusual Christian names for generation after generation. This has been a most enjoyable revelation for me and my only disappointment is that I cannot promise to feature the stories of everyone who has written in, often with wonderfully detailed contributions. However, I will do my best to include what I can in this column and from time to time in the coming months.

Gill Moody starts us off this issue with her 7x grandfather Daniel Garwood, who was born around 1674 in Brockley in Stafford. It seems he married twice, and had four children with his first wife Christian Pain, including a son called Daniel in 1696 who appears to have died in infancy as Gill’s 6x great-grandfather, also called Daniel, was christened in 1707 at Hartest in Suffolk.

This Daniel married Elizabeth (possibly an Elizabeth Root) in 1735 and they produced a family of nine children, the eldest being our writer Gill’s 5x great-grandfather, yet another Daniel Garwood, in 1735 in Hartest. In 1738 he married Catherine Pawsey and together they produced six children, the second of which was yet another Daniel Garwood, born in 1761, although sadly he died as a young boy and was buried in 1766.
