London and Middlesex / The Whereabouts of Samuel Meredith B. 1913
« on: Sunday 08 July 18 18:42 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if anybody can throw some light on this boy please.
He was born Samuel Meredith 1913 in Wandsworth at Hazelhurst Road.
His mother was listed as Agnes Meredith Formerly Dunn.
I believe he was born out of wedlock and the certificate was a cover up.
What he told me in later life was that he was "brought up by the nuns", I wonder if anybody can find him as a young boy in an institution perhaps local to where he was born ? due to the circumstance, I believe he was not at the family home.
Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in anticipation.

Technical Help / Long Running Script
« on: Monday 20 March 17 17:42 GMT (UK)  »
My computer seems to have developed a glitch, whereby most sites that I click on take time to actually load into, when I click the mouse a message comes up below saying "Long running script" with a ok box which it invites the user to press.
Regardless, it takes its time and then goes into whatever I have requested.
Any clues whats wrong members please ??

Norfolk Lookup Requests / Wymer
« on: Monday 27 July 15 17:08 BST (UK)  »
Once again I ask for help from RootsChat.
I have an ancestor, Jacob Wymer, b.circa 1756.
He was married twice, once  to a Susannah Gilbert and then a Elizabeth Moll.
It is about Jacob that I pose a question.
Many family trees have him born in South Walsham to parents John Wymer and Elizabeth, but I cannot find any evidence to verify this, and cannot include this in my tree.
On page 7/29 in 1759  in the South Walsham St Mary Parish Records there is an entry Sarah & Jacob, children of John and Elizabeth Wymer, baptised December 23rd.
I cannot find his birth record.
On page 26/29 in 1809 August 31st there is a record that Elizabeth wife of John Wymer, died aged 27 years ( That would make her born in 1782) much later after Jacob was born in 1750's.
This suggests that Elizabeth was a second wife of John Wymer ?
Have I missed a trick here ?, South Walsham St Mary could well be where he was born (There is also a Wymer Lane locally) but can you see a link anyone please ?
Thank you.

Lancashire Lookup Requests / John Thomas Henry
« on: Monday 07 April 14 20:08 BST (UK)  »
Could anybody help me please ?
I am trying to get back to the parents of John Thomas Henry.
John's marriage lines states 22 years old when getting married in 1895, his Death certificate of 1902 aged 28 years points to a birth about 1874.
I note a John Thomas born in that year from a place named Haslingden, Lancashire.
Trying to trace his family from Census records, show many other place names in Lancashire that I am not sure if its that area or not.
On the marriage lines of 1895, it lists his father as a John Henry (Deceased) occupation, Painter.
Any possible help to put me on the right path would be appreciated.
