RE: BASSANO, Philip d.1846
Hi Gaye,

Nunhead Cemetery is one of the oldest and nicest cemeteries in London. What makes its charm is the overgrown vegetation which covers many of the graves (see

Also, without a plot number, it is generally difficult to locate a grave. I will contact the cemetery department for you but without great hope.

Gayle, I finally got my ancestry correct for Anthony Bassano. I get to him through the Lanier's. I am proud to be related to him. He is my 12th great grandfather. Have a nice day. Linda

You placed a picture on Ralph de Neville, memorial # 7604296, but I am afraid it is on the wrong Richard de Neville. Would you kindly remove it? Thank you!

RE: Thomas Sleap 1829-1904
Inherited names certainly make the sorting-out of family connections a touch easier. Interesting to hear that that the Parker name has survived so many generations(!); Daniel Parker S. (1838) inherited it from his uncle, who had it from his mother's family name. Then Daniel Parker D. inherited it from his great uncle, and so on down. FYI, while I was searching for Sleaps I noted that Parker appears as a forename in some other families too, but I suspect they have their own histories (in any case I didn't bother to try and find a link).

I'm not sure if 'my' Sleaps are related to your's - I suspect they must be somehow, yet to be established - I just had to sort them out to see if there was any connection.
regards, Barry

RE: Thomas Sleap 1829-1904
OK, I think I know the same lady in WA.

Regarding Samuel Sleap, b. abt 1770 (he who married Mary Parker 29 Jun 1794, transcribed as Mary Part(sic) in LDS),
....well I suspect his father was not Emanuel. I suspect that that is a transcription error, and that his father's name was Samuel. (I'd like to see the document from which that was read!)

I suspect he might have been the Samuel Sleap that married Mary Ware 3 Mar 1762 Chesham, Buckinghamshire (he appears to have been a baptist preacher there). I've found a son James, and a daughter Ann (who married John Toovey), and others who could have been direct offspring or nephews. There were a whole load of Sleaps in Chesham, and they had links to tailoring too.

RE: Thomas Sleap 1829-1904
Yes (I thought I had written that):
Name: Thomas Sleap
Baptism Date: 8 Apr 1804
Parish: St Leonard, Shoreditch
County: Middlesex
Borough: Hackney
Parent(s): Samuel Sleap, Mary Sleap
Record Type: Baptism
Register Type: Parish Register

Born 2 Dec 1803, street address Bateman's Row (the same street address as for Frederic, baptised 29 Nov 1801).

The line above Thomas there is a baptism of a Parker (I wonder if he was related to Mary Parker), Sophia Parker daughter of Stephen Parker and Sophia.

In LDS he is Thomas Steap (sic):

Name Thomas Steap

Christening Date 08 Apr 1804
Birth Date 02 Dec 1803

RE: Thomas Sleap 1829-1904
Hi Gaye, I agree with your findings. What I am saying is that I cannot see any evidence that it was 'Thomas Parker Sleap' that married Sophia Goodbody. I think it was his younger brother, 'Thomas Sleap' born 2 Dec 1803 Feb 1829 Batemans Row, bapt 8 Apr 1804 St Leonard Shoreditch, who married Sophia Goodbody 6 Feb 1825 St Botolph Aldgate. In 1851 found at 16 Worship Street (b. abt. 1804), in 1861 at 11 Ware st (born abt 1804), in 1871 Crab Tree Row (b. abt 1804), died 1877.
All of the censuses hint that he was the younger of the two Thomas's in that family, the one born abt 1803, nor is the middle name Parker apparant anywhere.
I think Thomas Parker Sleap must have died before 1803, possibly to be found as Heap, Pleap, Sleat, Ship, Sleep, or whatever,... (but I haven't found him yet). I found a maybe, Thomas (illegible, could be Parker something) buried St Dunstan & All Saints Stepney 27 Jul 1798.

In 1851 next door with his wife Rebecca Sarah Trew is the son, Thomas b 14 Feb 1829 (the lithographer). He later remarried widow Jane Ann Goodbody, formerly Pyne, 24 Apr 1880.

The other interesting thing about that family is that his brother, Frederick Sleap b.1840 married their cousin, Elizabeth Sleap b.1840 (daughter of Francis Sleap & Ann Jaquiery).

Thomas Sleap 1829-1904
I think he was the son of Thomas Sleap, bapt. 8 Apr 1804 St Leonard Shoreditch, the last son of Samuel Sleap & Mary Parker (born 2 Dec 1803, street address Bateman's Row).
I think the earlier son, Thomas Parker Sleap, bapt 23 Apr 1797 probably died, enabling them to reuse that forename for their second Thomas.
regards, Barry

Hello Gaye - I believe I tried to find you earlier. I am Susan Salter, granddaughter of Albert Edwin Salter and Jessie Brookes. Harriet Hawkins is my GGM. My GF and family emigrated to Canada in 1928. Are you related to Rosina Hawkins by any chance?
Looking forward to your reply. Susan, Sylvan Lake, Alberta, Canada

I knew that was a mistake on his wife. I did not add that wife to him. Another person added it from their posting, and it showed up on my posting and I can't remove it. I have ask a couple times to remove it, but with no luck.
