Shropshire / Edwards, frodesley
« on: Tuesday 19 September 17 18:06 BST (UK)  »
Hi
I am looking up our local pub, the swan at frodesley, and Richard Edwards kept it from 1913 until 1917 when he drowned in longnor Brook.  In 1934 it was kept according to Kelly by Mary Jane edwards, who died from this address and was buried at frodesley I  1938. I am trying to discern if they were married as they are about the same age, but obviously I have no place of birth to find them on the 1911 census. Also in 1911 the swan was kept by James edwards, I haven't found richard as a relation yet but could he be? Please  can you help?
Thanks

Shropshire / 1911 census
« on: Saturday 14 January 17 16:48 GMT (UK)  »
Hi.
I am trying to find Kinton Hall, Middleton Chirbury shropshire on the 1911 census. I don't think any of my ancestors were there then so I haven't got a name to search for which is foxing me rather with ancestry.
I did have ancesters there from 1865 - 1901 and thought the 1911 census would give me an indication of the size of the property - number of rooms etc.
Please can someone help?
Thanks

The Common Room / What is a Mason
« on: Saturday 14 January 17 08:10 GMT (UK)  »
Hi
One of my great ancestors was a Mason in rural shropshire. What was a mason? Was it a builder? It was generally a mining/ farming community. Also in 1872 he appeared to buy a cottage for 125. What sort of money would this be today?
Thanks

Hi
My ancestors lived at Dolfor Alehouse and Upper Aldress churchstoke for many years. Is it likely they would have owned or been tenants? Is it possible to look up whether farms were owned or on land estates,?
Many thanks for your help

Montgomeryshire Lookup Requests / Churchstoke - DAVIES, Thomas
« on: Friday 10 January 14 19:01 GMT (UK)  »
Hi

I am looking for my 2nd Great grandfather, Thomas Davies, last seen at Upper Aldress in 1901 (where his daughter continued to live for at least a further 80 years). He was then seen at Hurdley in 1911 as a servant. I cannot find him dead for love nor money!. There is a Thomas died in 1916 in Montgomery but it is not him (I have the death cert). My Thomas was born about 1841 in Kerry, Montgomery. Thomas's wife Susannah died 1894 at Upper Aldress. The younger generation who died at Upper Aldress are buried in Churchstoke graveyard so I am hoping Thomas and Susannah are there too. Can anyone help with any possible burial records?

Thank you in advance  ;D

Montgomeryshire / Dolfor Alehouse
« on: Wednesday 01 January 14 14:03 GMT (UK)  »
Hi
I have recently been given some photographs of Dolfor Alehouse. The family of my GG Grandmother kept it from 1850's but the last one I can find listed is Martha Davies in 1899 (probate). In 1901 it is then listed as an Eliza M Jones keeping it. In 1911 Census it is kept by Breese's.

The photographs I have been given would seem to be a turn of the century one (1900's), and a 1930's when the name about the door is a Allen Noel Lloyd one so I assume there is still some family connection but am struggling to find it.

Does anyone know any of the history please?
Thanks

Lancashire / Violet Constance Davies
« on: Sunday 06 October 13 18:27 BST (UK)  »
Hi

One of my ancesters, Violet Constance Davies born 1909 in Toxteth, Liverpool I believe died on honeymoon, I think she married Emlyn Jones in 1927 but I can't seem to find a death record for her anywhere? Also I thought it might have been in the paper or something.

Please help?! Thanks

World War One / Probate for WW1 Soldier
« on: Sunday 06 October 13 18:23 BST (UK)  »
Hi
In the probate records book it says that Dennis Davies died in the hands of germans. Is this likely to be literally, as in a prisoner of war, or is it likely to be a generic term/typo as he died at Flanders in 1916?

Thanks

Clare
