An interesting story......
« on: Monday 28 November 05 16:45 GMT (UK) »
....... Not my intention to make this a Rootschat challenge but found this whilst browsing around and thought good enough to share.
http://www.castle-combe.com/  If it doesn't open directly into the page, go to Village Museum & then 'Castle Combe sampler discovered in New Zealand'.

If anyone does find out anything please contact the museum directly & of course let us know what's been found ;)

Well there's someone on GenesReunited with a Samuel in Castle Combe about the right age for Hannah's father.

Have messaged him with a link to this topic.  Hope he replies cos now I'm curious ;)

Thanks Goggy & Helen. Helen, many thanks for contacting that GR member, fingers crossed ;)
Well, as I said, I had no intention of making this a Rootschat challenge, but the lure of the chase proved too much for me & I was off rummaging through the internet :-[  This is what I've found;
IGI - Samuel Wallop bap. 25/6/1815, Chippenham, Wilts.  S/o James & Sophia. Possibly her father baptised as an 8 year old?   Married (1) Sarah Broom 5/5/1834 Castle Combe.

1851 at Pig Hill Castle Combe  HO107/1836/53/12
Samuel Wallop  42  tailor & drappers appren.  born Castle Combe
Susanna  42  born Bath
Mary  15  born Castle Combe
Hannah  13     ditto
Eliza Ann  10   ditto

1861 - still at Pig Hill (forgot ref)
Samuel tailor & collector of taxes
Susanna
Eliza Ann  18 unm  pupil teacher


I found Hannah in 1861 by putting in her details but no surname and found,

1861 - Brightling Sussex (forgot ref again :-[) Brightling St, School House
William Briely 23 school master born Bath Somerset
Hannah Briely  23 school mistress born Castle Combe

Marriage found courtesy of Allan on the Wiltshire board,
September quarter 1860, BREYLEY, Chippenham (5a 69)

Went back to 1851 HO107/1836/51/9  Castle Combe
John Breley  48  police officer  born Devon
Catherine  48
William Breley  13  born Bath Somerset
Elizabeth  11                       ditto

So, if Hannah went to NZ it was in the name of BRELEY and after census night (7/4/1861) but before census night 2/4/1871 as I can't find them there 'nor in 1881.

I've tried a few sites for NZ immigrants but they're normally indexed ship by ship so quite a task!

Any brilliant ideas warmly welcomed ;)

Hi
Found Hannah age 3 in Bath in 1841 with Susanna Ashley 30 Dressmaker (full details over on Wiltshire board)

Also
Death Sarah Wallop Mar qtr 1841 Chippenham

Marriage Samuel Wallop with Susanna Ashley on same page Sep qtr Bath 1841

No sign of Samuel in 41 or William Breyley (various spellings) are they hiding somewhere together ???.

Don't see how this helps with your quest but difficult to stop looking ;D

Thanks Goggy,
Usually Google is my first port of call in matters such as this, but found zilch :(

Have established from Kelly's Directories 1866 & 1867 that William Breley & Hannah were not school master/mistress at Brightling National school as they were in 1861.  In the above dates, it was a William White.  Of course they could have moved on to somewhere else in the UK, not necessarily packed their bags & sailed for NZ but I'll be bearing that information in mind when I search passenger lists,
