World War Two / service records WW2 - WRENS
« on: Sunday 11 November 18 09:00 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,

Does anyone know if the service records for WW2 personnel are available on-line?

I've just found out that my friends mother was a WRN and was land-based in Wales.
Like a common problem, nothing much was spoken about these years and consequently knowledge
is missing.
Any help  most appreciated.

Hi Marg 16,

The nearest I can come up with is a "Nether Wallop" a village in Hampshire  but adjacent to Wilts. Apparently there are other villages similarly name;   "Over Wallop and Middle Wallop"

If you do a Wiki - search you may find more info.

Hi Jamjar,

Many thanks for those records - I did have most of them.

Caroline Ethel Belcher went on to marry a Maurice Alexander in 1913 West Ham, Essex

Hi,
Eliza and Elizabeth round the wrong way

So I did!! Its confusing all the same.

What about the occupation of engine driver?  A stoker on a census seems to tie in.

Hi all,

Many thanks for all your imput.
The consesus seems to suggest it was one family with two Elizabeths.

The Eliza born about 1835 who married Joseph Vieyra was still going in 1881 living in Bermondsey whereas
the other Elizabeth  (bapt 1847) is the w/o Walter Belcher and I believe she died in 1908.

What is still a puzzle is the wide variation in occupations.

London and Middlesex / Help wanted - Samuel Paul Hunt Hayward & Mary Ann 1840s
« on: Friday 19 October 18 10:22 BST (UK)  »
Hello all,

Help wanted - I thought I had it all sorted out correctly; In my tree I have an Elizabeth Hunt Hayward born 6-9-1847 Southwark,  d/o Samuel Paul Hunt Hayward & Mary Ann,  Engineer.

She  marries Thomas Theodore Talley in 1868 who dies in 1875 and lists her father as above but now a Printer. Eliza then marries Walter Belcher as a widow in 1879 with her father same name as above but his occupation now appears to be Stoker.

I have found a marriage for Sam'l Paul hunt Haywood to Mary Anne Musgrave in 1827 Stepney, London

In the 1841 census Sam'l Hayward is recorded as a "watchmaker" with Elizabeth aged 6

In the 1851 census for Sam'l Hayward he is an engine driver with dau   Eliza aged 3

In the 1871 census Sam'l Hayward  is with a "Viegra" family as father-in-law a retired Engineer
A son   Richard Hunt Hayward marries in 1862 with father Engineer

I've now found evidence of Elizabeth Hunt Hayward marrying a Joseph Viegra in 1862 with father as above  an Engineer.

Am I right in thinking there are 2 x families with same father & mother's name?

I'm totally confused and any help in sorting out will be appreciated.

Hi Laura,

That was much quicker than I expected. Now you have posted 3 postings you can now use the PM system.

To send a PM all you have to do is click on the name to the left usually in green, this will then open up a new window
into which you can send a PM.

I will send one to you which should show up in "My Messages".

Meanwhile I will pass on the info to my friend.

Hoping to hear from you soon

Hi Judy,

The other children's bapt. I found are as follows;
All Shrivenham
20-12-1781 John Looker             s/o Wm. & Elizabeth
30-11-1783 Thomas  "  (8 days)   "      "             "         (formerly Lock)
10-7-1785   William   "  (2   "         "      "             "                 "         "
13-4-1788   Robert    "  (9   "         "      "             "                 "         "
4-9-1791     Jacob     "  (13 "         "      "             "                 "         "  (bur. 15-7-1792 (10 mths)
    "               Isaac      " (13  "        "      "             "                  "         "

Although it doesn't say so but, going by the ages of the last 2 children would think they were twins.

Hi Laura,

Welcome to Rootschat where I think you will find many members willing to help.

Firstly, the  John Harley and his family history is not connected with me in any way. I was doing searches for a close family friend whose grandfather happened to be  John Harley born 11-4-1892 in Barrhead, Renfrewshire.

Fortunately, I saved all  the records I obtained on my computer and have just found  them again. There  were at least 2 x John Harleys that I know of but, the one above is my friends direct ancestor. He married Annie Minery 19-7-1915 in St.Johns (RC), Barrhead, Renfrewshire.

Does the above help in any way?

Can you say who your g.father is and any info your prepared to give?

I have spoken to my friend and she would interested in making contact directly - she is not on Rootschat so I will not post her email address here for safety reasons..

Rootschat operates a  "Personal Messaging system"  (to exchange email adds. etc)  and you will need to make a total of 3 postings before you can use the "PM" system on R/Chat. Reply  to this message and another,  will allow you to use it.

Anything you can give by-way of ancestry would be most welcome and we look forward to hearing more from you soon.

Alan
