How did August come around so quickly? Those of us in the Northern hemisphere will  be needing the heating on any minute now!

Here is the place for telling everyone about your ancestors' anniversaries. We're not against odd bits of important historical stuff as well - it puts things in perspective if you have, for example, a forebear who was born on the anniversary of Culloden or Waterloo.

As I shall be away for the next week, I'm going to cheat and mention a few people from the first few days of August.

On August 1st 1717, my 7 x great uncle, John Bland, was born in Middleton-in-Teesdale.

2nd August 1837, my 2 x great grandfather, Benjamin Howe was born in Brightlingsea. Son of Benjamin Howe and Thirza French, he married Ermina Cant in 1862. Tragically he committed suicide in 1892, following Ermina's death and the loss of his boat and livelihood.

3rd August 1705 - 6 x great grandmother, Elizabeth Spurden was born in Great Oakley, Essex.

3rd August 1894 my grandfather, Thomas Henry Smith was born in Middlesbrough. He was the son of John Smith and Harriet Knight. He married Amelia Alice Frost ( nee Smith) and my mum was their second child ( Amelia already had two children from her first marriage). My mum idolised her father so when he was killed in an industrial accident in 1941, she was utterly devastated. Amelia only lived for another four years so I didn't know either of these grandparents, which leaves me feeling rather sad.

Over to you......

Just a reminder - I am planning to copy brief details (including submitter so you can alter/delete anything you don't like) into the new ancestral anniversaries database, not sure when I will get around to August - hopefully before next August!, but anyone who doesn't want their data copied please send me a PM to that effect.

By the way you might find ancestral anniveraries a handy diary for interesting posts for future dates.

I can't believe I've no Ancestral BMDs today. ;D   It's the only day so far since the original thread started.

Modified - I was right not to believe no Ancestral BMDs today.  I've done another search and found a few.  Back later when I've looked at them.

Born today in 1861in Woolwich, my 2xgt.aunt, Alice Agnes Pain;  daughter of Charles George and Mary Jane (nee Ottley).  1881 census finds Alice working as an assistant nurse in Woolwich Workhouse. Later that year she married Harry Lance in Lambeth.  A daughter was born in 1882. Alice later worked as a midwife.  In 1904 Alice divorced Harry and the following year married James Paling. Alice and James emigrated to Western Australia. Alice died in 1941 and is buried in Manjimup, WA.  James remarried 6 years later and died in Perth in 1960.

On 2 August   
Elizabeth Alden my half g.aunt (same mother as my gran, but different father) married George Mowforth in Hull, Yorkshire in 1896.  When Elizabeth was born in 1878 her father was shown as deceased on her birth certificate.  Iíve never been able to find a death Ė he was a fisherman so could have died at sea Ė but Iíve never been able to find him on any further census either to prove he had just left home, although my g.gran didnít marry my g.grandfather despite having 3 children with him so itís possible her husband was still alive somewhere.

May Victoria Witham (nee Pemberton) my 2nd cousin once removed was born in Warrington, Cheshire in 1900

Elsie Beryl Dwyer (nee Salter) my 3rd cousin once removed was born in Tasmania in 1912

Robert Day my 4 x g.grandfather was baptised at St Andrewís Church, Heckington, Lincolnshire in 1752.  When he married his occupation was shown as Inn Holder, which I assume is the same as an innkeeper.  Certainly his youngest son, my 3 x g.grandfather, was a brewer.

William Cawthorn my 5 x g.grandfather was buried at St Andrewís Church, Hacconby, Lincolnshire in 1782, aged 53.  He was a labourer.

Thomas Hardy my husbandís 2 x g.g.uncle was buried at St Lawrence Church, Denton, Lancashire in 1840.  He was 3 years old.

Stan worked at Liverpool Victoria insurance company, enjoyed amateur dramatics and singing with a local band. He joined the RAFVR and became an air gunner.  On 13 June 1944 his plane crashed in France killing all the crew. He is buried in a French churchyard with several other WW2 casualties.
