Marriages 1560-1712

Holy Trinity Church Dorchester

This transcription was kindly donated to the OPC project prior to 2005 by Peter Collins (with a few early entries by Christine Crawford) which was taken from a copy of Phillimore's Marriage Registers, published in 1909. 

Images of the Parish register (PR) are now (Oct 2011) available on ancestry.com to members, but many of the names particularly for baptism and burials have been indexed differently by Ancestry. Some of these records are extreemly difficult to read so always check originals but bear in mind that you will need some experience of transcription from Secretary hand and 16th/17th century conventions. I have found the transcription done by Phillimore for the marriages to be remarkably accurate and because of the difficulty in getting an accurate transcription for baptisms etc I have cross referenced many (not all) of these marriages to baptisms and burials to build family groups and make proper sense of events rather than rely on straight transcription of entries.

Some records for 1634 and 1635 were transposed in error in the original transcription and these have now been corrected leaving the original year visible but with a line through it in case individuals have previously recorded entries from the original transcription in their family tree.

    [Note:- The Pouncey family were butchers and were always at odds with the reformers. See page 163 of David Underdown's book 'Fire from Heaven' where it states " The Pounceys had been in Dorchester at least since 1570, when a certain John POUNCEY married Margaret HAGGARD. They raised a large family of children including two sons, Thomas & Roger who survived throughout our period . The first named - Thomas the elder - lived a fairly quiet life: one absence from church and a couple of drinking offences are the only charges recorded against him between 1629 and 1637, and he was sufficiently responsible to serve on juries occastionally.

    Their children were:- (1) Roger bap HT 15th Oct 1571 (2) John bap 5th May 1575 (3) Mathew bap HT 28th Sep 1577 - Note:- I have not so far located the baptism of Thomas]

John MERSHE & Joane TALBOTT were married 28-Jan 1579

William READ & Elizabeth BISHOPPE were married 31-Jan 1579/80

    [Note:- William READ (d.1608) was a Yeoman farmer who marries here to Elizabeth BISHOP (d.1593). Elizabeth died and was buried at HT on 3rd Sep 1593 followed by William on 28th July 1608. He left a Will dated 13 May 1608
    which was proved on 30 September 1608. It refers to him owning 3 burgages on the east side of Colliton Row which appear to have been at the corner where Pease Lane intersects the Street with the burgage of John Banger being on the north side of his 3 properties. He left the first 2 to his eldest surviving son Nathaniel and the other to William. These proprties are referred to in charter 678 when Richard Vivian another yeoman of Dorchester sells his burgage for £9 which lies on the noth side of Pease lane between William Reads property on the west and Thomas Edwards on the east. This deed was actually witnessed, among others, by William READ himself. They raised a family in Holy Trinity parish but from his Will it is clear that they had more children than surviving parish records reveal:-

    (1) William Read (1580-1580/6)bap HT Church on 16th Oct 1580 & must have died pre 20th Nov 1586 when another son was named William
    (2) Thomasine Read (1581-1660) bap HT 10th Feb 1581/2 , she married John SPICER at HT on 13 Oct 1600 and was a beneficiary under her fathers Will in 1608 as were her 2 children.
    (3) George Read (1584-1584) bap HT 25th July 1584 & buried there 10th Mar 1584/5
    (4) William Read (1586-1586) bap HT 20 Nov 1586 & buried 4th Jan 1586/7
    (5) Nathaniel Read (1588-1638) bap HT 30th Jan 1588 referred to in his fathers Will of 1608 as his eldest [surviving] son. Nathaniel married Elizabeth TRIVETT at HT Church in Dorchester on 6th Nov 1609

    [Note:- some baptisms do not seem to have been recorded at this time. We have a comprehensive record up to 1586 which seems to recover to the same level in 1592. The Rector of Holy Trinity Rev. Edward Doughty MA.(c1550-1616) resigned his position on 15 Nov 1585; he was also Master of the Free School in Dorchester and seems to have kept maticulous records from the date of his appointment in 1580. The change in Rector may therefore account for the loss. Information about his replacement Rev Richardus JOHNSON MA is scant and his university records suggests he took over in 1585 but I doubt this as he was only ordained a priest on 25th March 1586 which is our last complete record. The year 1587 saw only 3 baptisms; the year 1588 only two one of which is William Read (9) below. 1589 saw 5 baptisms but 1590 has the latin inscription nihil inventus [meaning none found/discovered] suggesting that the baptism registers were compiledsome time later. It needs to be remembered that 1588 was the year of the Spanish Armada when attentions were focused elsewhere. The Will and burial register suggests they had 3 more children plus William who was baptised in 1592. Elizabeth nee Bishop died in Sep 1593.

    (6) Joane Read; a 'Joane the daughter of William READ' was buried at HT on 15th July 1598
    (7) Anne Read named as a beneficiary under Williams Will in 1608. Ann married John RASKER at HT Church in Dorchester on 13-Nov 1609
    (8) Elizabeth Read named as a beneficiary under Williams Will i9n 1608.
    (9) William bap HT 26th Mar 1592 -
    named as a beneficiary under Williams Will in 1608 where he is referred to as his second [surviving] son.

    Ralphe PERIN & Margret PURCHASE were married 10-May 1610 (PR)

      [Note:- Margaret PURCHASE was the daughter of Nicholas PURCHASE who was buried at Holy Trinity in 1620. Her marriage to Ralph and her daughter Jane are mentioned in Nicholas's Will. Ralph's surname was also spelt Perrin, Perryn or Peryn and the family, and Ralph, are briefly mentioned by David Underdown in his book 'Fire from Heaven'. There was undoubtedly several of that name as an earlier Ralph Peryn was a witness to municipal records from as early as 1538 and was bailiff of Dorchester from 1548 to 1550, and then a Constable 1550 -1551. He owned a burgage on the south side of High West street in 1549.

      This Ralphe Perin is mentioned briefly in the Will of Richard Barker (1542-1621) and was constable of Dorchester in 1629 [See MRD page 653 & WW Diary p.107]. There is an interesting document that survives in the Municipal Records [See MRD page 657] which is quoted below as it provides details of his business trading, dependants and the Corporations attempts to keep the price of basic foodstuffs within the reach of the poor:- "29th Nov 1630 - Raph [Ralph] PERRIN hath of Wheate in his barne 300 bushells, and of barley there in store 640 bushells, hath in his house and family 17 persons certaine, is allowed for his household eighty bushells of wheate, and of Barley to spend in his house 100 bushells; he hath sold unto Mr Ball . Bond for the pore [poor] of the Towne 100 bushells of wheate, and is ordered to bring into the market weekly, or to sell so much to the poor of the Towne and make it appeare to be so, two bushells of wheate; and of barley is allowed for sowing of 80 acres 320 bushells of barley, and for his household as before 100 bushells; and the remayneth 220 bushells of barley and is ordered to bring weekly into the market, or to swell unto the pore [poor] of the Towne, a sack of barley every fortnight, and the rest he is allowed to make into mault."

      Their children were:- (1) William bap HT 28th Feb 1610/11 & buried HT 28th Mar 1611 (2) Joane [Jaine] bap HT 12th March 1611/12 -- Margaret his wife then died and was buried at HT on 15th March 1611/12. Joane and Jaine appear to be interchangable names in the 16th century. The baptism is clear as Joane but Jane the daughter Margaret by Ralph was left forty shillings in her grandfathers Will in 1620. Margaret of course had already died by then.

      Ralph PERIN clearly had a large family by 1630 - He appears to have re-married after Margaret's death as the following additional baptisms also appear in the HT parish registers (3) Sarah bap 3rd Jan 1618/9 (4) Elizabeth bap 23 Dec 1621 (5) Deborah bap 4th Feb 1626/7. He also had a son (6) Ralph PERRIN 'the younger' whose baptism I have not located who appears to have married an Anne and produced a daughter Eleanor bap HT 30th July 1637. But Anne died and was buried 15th Oct 1645 followed by their daughter Eleanor on 30th October that year.

      died and was buried at HT on 11th March 1643/4]

    John LINZEY [LINSEY] & Joane PETVIN were married 29-Jun 1611 (PR)

      [Note:- To make life really difficult 'John LINSEY' also appears to had an alias of 'John PETTY'. The only evidence I have for this is the baptism of his son Thomas on 3rd May 1629 where he is shown as 'Thomas the sonne of John Petty als Linsey'. The baptism of their 4th child as John again however is explained but the death the previous John under the surname Petty and the sequence of children seems to fit one family so I have assumed he simply went by both names. Their children were:-:- (1) Katherine Linzey bap HT 11th June 1612 and buried as Catherine Linsey at HT on 14th Feb 1614/15 (2) Elizabeth Linsey bap HT 15th Sep 1614 (3) John Linsey was bap HT 1st June 1617 ,but appears to have died and been buried as John the son of John Petty at HT on 12th July 1617 (4) John Linsey bap HT 2nd Sep 1621 buried as John Linsey HT 6th Sep 1621 (5) Mary Linsey bap HT 15th May 1623 (6) Richard Petty bap HT 5th March 1625/6 (7) Thomas Petty bap HT 3rd May 1629]

Zachary then married in Dorchester as Holy Trinity was Anne HYATT's home parish but they returned to live at Frampton. Zachary was a beneficiary under the will of Edward Dashwood of Dorchester in 1667 and referred to as a Clerke [i.e. of holy orders]. There is reference in the Clergy of the Church of England database to a Zachary NELSON being rector of East Stoke when subscription was required under the Act of uniformity on 20th Aug 1662. His place seems to have been taken there by Rev Richard Wine BA in 1667 for a year. Richard Wine was rector of All Saints Church in Dorchester from 1662 to 1687. Revd RGB Bartlelott refers to Zachary Nelson as being a Cromwellian Preacher of Frampton.

He left his brother in law Matthew READ of Dorchester a Hellier by trade 1 shilling but made various bequests to his children by his sister Elizabeth as detailed below. John and Elizabeth appear to have been children of Henry & Mary CAKE [surname also spelt KAKE] who lived in the hamlet of Holworth within the parish of Owermoigne, John being baptised at St Michael's church on 13th Feb 1624/5. A younger sister Anne was baptised there on 29th Sep 1626, followed by Katherine on 20th Apr 1628 and Elizabeth on 8th Nov 1630. They moved to the nearby hamlet of Galton where their sister Anne died at the age of 10 being buried at St Michael's on 23rd Oct 1636 followed by their mother Mary on 21st Sep 1640. John Cake in his will (apart from bequests) left his estate to his wife Ursulah who was also joint executrix to his will. Unfortunately she was also ill and soon died being buried at Owermoigne on 14th March that year. John's estate was therefore proved by his nephew (and joint executor) Samuel READ on 23rd Jan 1709/10

    Note:- Thomas MEADER Senior (d.1691) was the son of Thomas MEADER the Elder a Millwright by trade who was buried at HT Church in Dorchester on 19th April 1675. His father left a nuncupative will registered 15th May 1675. His mother Jane had pre-deceased his father being buried at HT on 4th Sep 1670. I have not been able to locate his baptism which was probably during the Civil War (1642-1651) when there was much disruption and destruction of records. He was clearly the eldest surviving son in 1675 and could even have been by a previous marriage as he was already well provided for by the time of his fathers death as he and his children are effectively written out of the will. Thomas died intestate and was buried at HT on 25th Nov 1691. His widow Jane was granted Administration of his estate on 9th Dec 1691. Jane was also buried at HT on 15th June 1715 and left a Will dated 8th June that year which was proved on 17th Oct 1715. Thomas MEADER Senior and Jane had the following Children;-

      (1). John MEADER (1668-xxxx) bap HT 30th Aug 1668 and buried there on xxx

      (3). Jane (Jean) MEADER (1672-1754) bap HT 29th Sep 1672. She is referred to in her mothers will as 'her daughter Jean GUEST' when her mother only left her 1 shilling which is an indicator that she had already received her inheritance as her dowry on marriage. I have not located her marriage. Jane Guest was buried a widow at HT Church on 25th Feb 1754. She left a will dated 8th March 1748 which was proved on 2nd March 1754.

      (4). Charles MEADER (c1674-1721) Born circa 1674, not located a baptism.

He was also appointed executor of his sisters Jane's will in 1748 but died before she did so administration of her estate was carried out by his son Samuel.
