London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Transcription of a doc at LMA required
« on: Thursday 30 August 18 11:30 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for someone who uses LMA archives to look at an original document for me.

An Insurance cert for Fenny Stratford, in Bucks, in the name of: "Richard Garner, Fenny Stratford, Buckinghamshire, victualler".  Reference CLC/B/192/F/001/MS11936/334/515393.

I don't think this is available digitally from Ancestry. Please correct me if that's wrong, and I will visit my local library and pull it from there.

A photo would be great, but just a full transcription would suffice.  Is anyone going soon for research?


Hi, just picked up on the Cherry Tree Cottage mention, a lot of the deeds for that building are stored at Beds Archives, under X395/93 to /97. Lots of Hutton mentions....

There are two books about Robert Salmon of Woburn in the Local Heritage Library, which is inside Bedford Library.

1.    “R. Salmon’s controversy with the Woburn Market Committee, occasioned by their having unlawfully, and unjustly, turned out and excluded part of their own members, without any authority so to do.”

Sorry, I should have made it clearer.  Mine is the North Bucks Walton, between Wavendon and Simpson, not the Aylesbury one.

I have literally just had the permission to add a photo of the Lightfoots to my page about the inn, which is here:,%20Walton.html

Bingo!  Thanks for the tip, Rosie, found as LIGHTFORT on Findmypast!  Now I can look for burials in Wavendon.

Buckinghamshire / LIGHTFOOT in Walton, North Bucks
« on: Wednesday 15 April 15 15:34 BST (UK)  »
Currently researching the LIGHTFOOT family, who ran an inn in Walton called "The Angel", later "The Pine Tree".  John took the inn with his with Martha just before 1838, he was born in North Crawley. John died 1857, wife continued with the inn until their son William took over in 1875.  William married Elizabeth EASTMAN in 1869.

William and Elizabeth had two daughers, Margaret Elizabeth and Frances Ellen.  Margaret married a George GRAVES, but there were no children. Frances married Capt. Frank POULTON of the Church Army in Luton, and had one daughter, Daisy.

I know there is a great photo of the family outside the inn at Bucks archives. The inn closed 1909, and I can't find William or Elizabeth on the 1911 census.  Any other family information welcome.

There is a whole book on the Perry family of Aspley Guise and area, by Joyce Perry.  They are expensive, if you can even find one, but your local library service might be able to get one.

Completed Census Requests / Re: 1861 Lookup please Completed Thanks
« on: Tuesday 17 March 15 11:52 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Tazzie and other Collins descendants... 

I'm looking into John Collins from the 1841 Census (married to Elizabeth Collins, 39, and had four sons, Noah, 12, Josiah, 10, James, 7 and John, 5.), and I believe he was one of three rioters convicted at the Aylesbury Assizes after the Swing Riots of 1831. 

He continues appearing in the Census in Wavendon until 1871, by which time his address is listed as Hardwick Cottage, in modern day Woburn Sands  A death of a John Collins is recorded in the Newport Pagnell area in 1879. ‘Thomas’ is used as a forename in some records.

Have you come across this event before?

Hi.  We don't have a family connection to it, just that a relative lived next door when they were very young and wanted to know about it.  If you find out anything, please let us know.
