Heraldry Crests and Coats of Arms / Re: Fowke of Elmsthorpe
« on: Sunday 05 August 18 13:00 BST (UK)  »
Hi,

I can't find a picture of the arms but as no one else has replied ... here is what they would look like. Also, here is the entry in Papworth's Ordinary which suggests they were originally granted by William Camden who was the Clarenceux King of Arms between 1597 1623 so a bit earlier than you were thinking!

Thank you for all the replies ... I know what I'll be doing this evening and it won't be watching the football!

I only mentioned Elizabeth Ewing because she was a servant in the Barber household in 1911 (sorry not 1901) (Margaret Jane Barber (nee Ewing, John Lipsett Barber). Margaret is definitely related to my b-i-l - I am not sure how common a name Ewing is in Ireland so I guess she could just be a red herring.

Charles Ewing sounds very interesting  ::) though I'm not sure what B-i-l's Mum will make of him if he turns out to be one of her relatives!

Thanks again,

Liz

Have you not looked at Links posted?

She was born in Sligo!
I'm very sorry  :-[ - yes I did look at all of them and have been making a note of all the information but somehow missed the ref to Sligo as place of birth.  :'(

At the risk of sounding really stupid I am now intrigued by Elizabeth Ewing on the 1901 Barber household census - she is Catholic and 16 - the Ewings are C of I and the only Elizabeth I have found so far was born 1874 so too early - and if she were the illegitimate daughter of one of the Ewing sisters she would surely take her mother's denomination? I'll have a look for her later as i have to go out now.

Thanks for all your help,

Liz

Wow!!  :o

My b-l's Mum will be so thrilled when she sees these records!

Thank you all so much!

I'm just wondering why a girl from Dublin would end up in Rosses Point, Sligo - but then maybe Thomas Ewing was also from Dublin and they moved together?

Thank you for all the replies!

Of course - I am so sorry - Thomas is Samuel Matthew JACOB's father - Anna never married him but I had the wrong page of my notes open  ::)

 :o I never saw the "image" thing at the bottom!!  Oh dear ... so much information at the click of a button - what an idiot I am :-[

I am very grateful for all the help ... perhaps Ireland isn't quite as scary after all!  8)

Ireland / Anna Sarah EWING birth record 1885
« on: Monday 09 July 18 15:21 BST (UK)  »
Hi,

I have zero experience of Irish research but have come across Anna Sarah EWING (my b-l's GGM) who was born in 1885 in Sligo according to Familysearch.

I checked this on the www.irishgenealogy.ie site and sure enough, she's there, but it says "Mother's Birth Surname N/R". Does this mean it won't give me any information about her mother? What about her father? I know about her life after her marriage to Thomas JACOB in 1905 and her descendants in England but would like to try a bit of Irish research and seem to have fallen at the first hurdle (well, second, as I did get Thomas' family back a couple of generations  ;D ).

If it is worth me getting a copy of the birth / marriage records would I be right in thinking that the site I've referred to above is the best way to do it - although there doesn't seem to be an online option?

Thank you very much,

Liz

 ;D Thank you - I think you're right - it certainly looks like Trusler but agreed it is difficult to read!

Hi Jan,

No, I haven't found him in 1871 - the family are easy to spot when they appear as they seem to be bricklayers for several generations but annoyingly elusive at other times!
