Worcestershire / Re: Tardebigge baptisms please
« on: Monday 08 January 18 16:12 GMT (UK)  »

The subscription transcription index for Worcestershire has a single entry for a William WATTON in Tardebigge between 1790 and 1810 of 1799.

Sorry I don't have a sub, searches are free but redacted.

There's also the church cemetery of St. Nicolas on The Green in the village.

I suppose it depends on the date you are looking at.

Hi, I think that the electoral registers have been moved from Redditch Library to The Hive at Worcester.

Montgomeryshire / Baptism Abode: Prison
« on: Tuesday 17 October 17 14:51 BST (UK)  »
Hi Folks,

On my 2 x great grandfather John Richard HUMPHREYS' Baptism record in Montgomery on the 11th January 1839 is a curious Abode comment:

Meifod, but now Prisoner in the County Gaol

His parents were Robert (a farmer) and Mary HUMPHREYS.  Please can anyone tell me why he may have been there?  I'm assuming it's the father in trouble.

Lanarkshire / Re: Diamond Family Glasgow

Hi Folks,

I, too, am looking at a DIAMOND family in Glasgow.

Martin DIAMOND was a Chelsea Pensioner, born 1798 give or take 5 years, in Ireland.  His place of birth was, I think, Magherafelt, County Derry (Londonderry).  His wife was Isabella.  The family seemed to have crossed the water a few times.  In the 1841 they were in Savoy street, Glasgow and in the 1851 Dalmarnock Road.

FindMyPast have an 1851 "Communicants and Converts" record for for a Martin DIAMOND at St. Columbkilles, in Rutherglen.

The children in 1841 appear to be:

                                Age   Approx year of birth
Thos Diamond         20     1716-1721
Sarah Diamond        13    1828
Daniel Diamond       11    1830
William Diamond      4      1836

My guess is that there could be more children who did not suruve or who had left home by 1841.

By 1861 the widow, Isabella, and the three youngest children had moved to Manchester, England.

Does this family connect, please?

Derry (Londonderry) / Lost location: 'Ardhoy'
« on: Sunday 10 September 17 11:41 BST (UK)  »
Hi Folks,

I'm doing some research for a family member.  Please can anyone identify the place Ardhoy.  Martin DIAMOND was in receipt of a Chelsea Pension in Glasgow.  Later his widow Isabella moves to Manchester, England.  I'm currently assuming, with no evidence, that Martin died in Glasgow, between 1851 and 1861.

Reference:    WO 97/461/34


Born ARDHOY, Londonderry

Served in 27th Foot Regiment

Discharged aged 29
Date:    1816-1827
Held by:    The National Archives, Kew
Legal status:    Public Record(s)

Any other information would be of great help.
