Hello Everyone

I am very new to this but recently replied to a post on HEKIN/OWEN in the hope that I could connect with someone with the same ancestors.  Unfortunately that drew a blank so I have been tempted to try a post of my own!

Richard Heakin was born approx 1842/1843 in Worthen.  He married Caroline Swain on 19th November 1863 at Hope Church.  His father was Samuel Heakin.  Both he and his father were lead miners. He died on 5th June 1914, aged 71, at The Hill, Pontesbury.

Caroline Swain was baptised on 25th September 1842 at Worthen. Her father John was a farmer and her mother was Margaret (I believe her maiden name was Downes and that she was baptised on 19th September 1819 at Churchstoke, Montgomery - but I have not confirmed this).  Caroline died on 21st January 1899, aged 56, at Lordstone Lane, Worthen.

Richard and Caroline had the following children: 

Margaret Swain Heakin, baptised 25th April 1864,

Susannah, baptised 24th July 1864,

Mary, bap 3rd July 1870,

Richard, bap 6th November 1871,

Samuel, bap 18th February 1873,

Martha, born 7th October 1878 at Pentervin(?), Worthen, died 3rd March 1912, aged 33, married George Edward Pugh on 9th November 1898 at Pontesbury Church,

Caroline, born about 1877.

If this is familiar to anyone I would be delighted to hear from you.

Regards, Sue

Many thanks Margaret.

I forgot to add to my previous post that I have been unable to find Richard Heakin - no birth certificate or entry in parish record - very frustrating!

However, if I find any more I will be in touch.

Regards, Sue

Hi Sue

I too have researched Heakin family history. My husbands grandmother was Edith Heakin and her father was Richard Heakin (born 1871). His parents were Richard and Caroline (nee Swain). I have more information if you are still interested email me on Wystan1@aol.com. We still live in South Shrophire.

Samuel Heakin's gravestone is in All Saints Church in Worthen. If you ask in the local shop they have a transcript of the inscription.

My Mothers Mothers father was  Joshua Heakin of Pennsyvania who passed around 1960.  He is related to Samuel Heakin). I belive maybe Samuel was his grandfather.  Joshua settled in the Pittsburgh area and had many children. He went out West in the early 1900's to Colorado Springs to check out a gold mine, but , only stayed a short time and retuned to PA.  One of his daughters, Violet, married into the Gray family in PA, who were from Thuso- Perth ares of Scotland traced back to 1600 there.

Hello gonewest7

Thank you for replying to my post. I am afraid I have been working on other parts of my family and have not looked at the Heakins for a while.  Leave it with me and I will take a look and see if there is a connection.  

Regards, Sue
