William DANIELS b 1817


I am trying to find out what happened to William Daniels. All I have for him is a baptism record which states that he was born 02 Aug 1817 and baptised at All Saints, Edmonton on 15 Mar 1818. His parents were William (labourer) and Rebecca DANIELLS.

If it helps I know that his mother's maiden name was HOBBS and that she married William on 31 Jan 1815 at All Saints, Edmonton.

I can ...

Did children get moved between workhouses?

I've traced an orphan ancestor to a workhouse in Crossgate Durham, Margaret Anderson, born approx 1847. She's in the 1851 census there. I hired Durham record office but they were unable to find a likely birth/baptism and there was nothing in workhouse Master's notes.

After a long time, and trying different searches, I found a Margaret Anderson born to Ann Anderson, unmarried, in Barnard castle workhouse in 1847. This is approx 1 hr away from ...

army marriages

I've just been reminded that army marriages were recorded separately from civil registration and I vaguely recall seeing such indexes at St Katherine's House back in the 1980s. I'm looking for a couple of marriages between 1845-1875 and wondered if these are available online? I've had a look at Ancestry and FMP and most Ancestry records are behind the Fold3 wall.

Former Chapel now Private House


I’ve recently discovered the final resting place of my x3 great grandparents, Joseph and Anne Herbert. They both died in 1911, and were buried at Christmas Common in Oxfordshire. Christmas Common being a very small hamlet, I had hoped to plan a visit and see if the headstone for my ancestors survived!

Unfortunately I discovered the Chapel that was built is now a private house with headstones scattered in the grounds. Does anybody know ...

Researching at TNA

Researchers might like to see this and pre-order at least one document to get a seat ... ng-spaces/

Being rather cynical about this, why is one of the spaces next to the Reading Room, we were told the reason we couldn't have modern tables was it would reduce the numbers of seats and reducing the seats is what we are getting and still working at tables installed in ...

Richard Thomas Davison

Richard Thomas Davison, born 25.6.1847 in Chelsea, baptised at St Lukes Church 6.7.1847 to Henry and Elizabeth Davison. The next time I can find him is in the 1918, 1919 and 1920 electoral roll for 39 Culvert Road, Battersea where his brother Henry and family had also lived. He might be boarding in Shepherd's Bush and working as a wood carver in the 1911 census but I can't be certain it is him.

He is ...
