Worcestershire / Re: Agriculture in 1894

Ancestry have the "Return of Owners of Land" for 1873. Although many years ago it was a free transcription and may still be findable on the Internet.  Worcestershire and Warwickshire are on it.  I could only see one GOULD.  An Elizabeth in Rowington.

It might be worth checking the Petty Sessions as the magistrate(s) issued the licenses.

Local newspapers may also help.  A bar room brawl or coroners court may mention the inn and it's landlord.


Worcestershire / Re: Birth parents help!?

Hi Zoe,

This may not help.

If you try FamilySearch (search parameters: Alfred;ALLEN;Worcestershire;1850-1855 with all boxes left unchecked) then a number of possible characters turn up.  Among these is a "Thomas Alfred ALLEN" - St. Peter, Worcester.  There's a christening  as well as the GRO birth index.

If you think it's worth pursuing then the mother's maiden name can be found on the government's website

You don't need to purchase a certificate to see the index, but you will need to register.

I know use the National Library of Scotland maps.  This link gives a 1883-1913 map with  Geo-Referenced link to a modern street map side by side with the older map.

Have fun


Worcestershire / Re: Gross Road, Redditch, Worcestershire

Next to try would be commercial directories.  But do remember they took 12 to 18 months to be published.

You don't say the search terms you used but I found this London Gazette reference for some one changing their name:  so you're not cracking up.  I used: "gross road" and Redditch.  The double quotes are important.

If you can't find a directory then try getting to The Hive record office in Worcester and looking at the electoral register.

Failing that try contacting the good people at Redditch Local History Society:

Hi Bobcats,

Do you know what part of Redditch Gross road was in?  There's been an awful lot of new housing going up.

Could the name have been Headless Cross or Crabbs Cross.  Both areas within Redditch.


Worcestershire / Re: Edward Whitney (1867- ) of Redditch

Hi Stephen,

Just to muddy the waters there was an Edward C. WHITNEY registered in Birmingham in the 2nd quarter of 1968, aged 89.  Who would be around to know what was his actual DoB if he had gone to a nursing home?

You'll probably need a death certificate, and/or a Monumental Inscription.

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.


Worcestershire / Re: Kings Norton Cemetery/Old Kings Norton Cemetery

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.
