John Hall - Coleorton

John was likely born about 1806 in Ashby De La Zouch, Leicestershire. Perhaps in the same location where some of his children were baptized (Moor, Coleorton). I believe I have located John on the 1841 census living with his wife Mary and seven children. By 1851, Mary is a widow.

Civilian interpreter RAF Cologne

I have been researching a lady who was evidently a civilian member of the RAF in Germany. Born in London in 1909 she died in RAF hospital Wegberg in 1954 aged 44.

I have just received a Consular death certificate which gives no cause of death. The form makes reference to a death certificate from the British Medical Centre, Cologne. Would this show a cause of death and how can I get a copy?

Montserrat research? Montserrat research?

Can anyone help me with researching an English family who lived on the Island of Montserrat in the West Indies during the early 1880's?

My 2x Great Grandparents, John Chandler and Jane Bennett left the UK with their 5 children sometime around 1880 and then lived on Montserrat for about 6 years before returning to the UK. John was a farmer/gardener so I suspect he was working on a plantation on the Island.

I would ...

Birmingham publicans

Can someone help please?
On the 1911 Census my Grandfather's occupation was 'Publican' of the Cock Inn, Bartley Green, Birmingham. My mother was born there in 1909. Can I assume that 'Publican' was the equivalent of the present day term 'Landlord'?
Is it possible to find lists of publicans/landlords in the Birmingham area pre 1900 as I have another relative who was a 'Licensed victualler' at a pub in Northfield, Birmingham on the 1851 Census. ...
