Wilks and Marven families

By Gemma Jones on 24/06/2019 at 21:42


I'm hoping you can give me some ideas of where to look to add some detail to my family history research.

I am related to Thomas Shead Wilks who lived on Pulpits Farm on 1881 census. He is my 3rd great grandfather. In one of his cottages (number 23) lived the Marven family. Thomas' daughter Harriet married William Marven who are my 2nd great grandparents. They moved to North Street in Rochford and were there throughout their lives. I'm sure there is a link to Custom House too but I don't know where to find it.

I'm interested in any information about these families or where they used to live. I didn't know whether you may know where I can find out more about these families or any contacts you might have who can help me.

Thank you for your time. And not to worry if you can't help.
