Europe / Help with Latin parish register
« on: Saturday 08 September 18 16:26 BST (UK)  »
Hello everyone

I'm struggling to read my ancestor's baptism record.

He was baptised 18th February 1751 in Houtvenne, Belgium.
Joannes Josephus legitimate son of Francisci Raineri Briffoz and Anna Maria Jonico.
One of the godparents seem to be Anna Maria Briffoz.

I think it says the father comes from Hoij (Huy in the province of Liège). Indeed I found the baptism of another child of the couple in Huy in 1744 and it seems like François Reinier was baptised in Huy himself.

Does it say something about the mother's birthplace? I'm not sure.
Any help much appreciated:-)

Europe / Belgium baptism - father's birthplace
« on: Saturday 01 September 18 01:30 BST (UK)  »
I have found the following baptism record for my ancester Joanna Maria Crevecoeur in Leuven St Gertrudis in 1734 but the only thing I can't read or make out is her father's place of birth. Looks like Loixom to me. Any good eyes out there?

Buckinghamshire / Tebb(e)y, Gayhurst 1791
« on: Tuesday 07 February 17 17:59 GMT (UK)  »
According to Familysearch,

William Tebbey married Mary Tompkins on 22 September 1791 at Gayhurst.

If anyone has access, I'd be interested to know if the original record contains any extra information, e.g. Marital status, abode, etc.

William and Mary seem to have baptised three children in Gayhurst and several others in nearby Hanslope. I wonder if they buried any in Gayhurst too?

Thanks for your help

Oxfordshire Lookup Requests / William Do(w)man born c. 1760
« on: Sunday 29 January 17 16:04 GMT (UK)  »
I'm tracing William Do(w)man and his wife Elizabeth.

Here's what I know:
- The earlist baptism I can find for their children is their son George baptised on 17 November 1786 in Garsington.
- William was buried in Iffley on 13 January 1847 aged 87, so born around 1760.
- On the 1841 census, he's in Iffley, age rounded to 80, and born in county.
- His wife Elizabeth was buried in Garsington on 21 April 1819 aged 54, so born around 1765.
- On Oxfordshire Record Office's Herigate Search, there's a settlement certificate for the couple, dated 14 October 1786, for William Dowman and his wife Elizabeth from Sandford to Garsington.

So, I presume William had something to do with Garsington before the birth of his son George. And that Sandford didn't want to be burdened with him and his pregnant wife.

I can't find a marriage for William and Elizabeth. Perhaps she was from Sandford.
Could William have arrived in Garsington as an apprentice?

Is anyone able to shed any light on this couple?

All the best

Norfolk Lookup Requests / 1740 will, William Matthews, Fincham
« on: Wednesday 25 January 17 16:28 GMT (UK)  »
I'm interested in this will.
William Matthews, yeoman of Fincham, 1740.
I found it on the Norfolk record office online catalogue.
Is there anyway to view it online, or does anyone have access to it?

Thanks from Germany

Berkshire Lookup Requests / Berkshire Wills Index - Brown in Frilford, Marcham
« on: Monday 16 January 17 18:38 GMT (UK)  »
Hello everyone ;D

I'm interested in the Brown family of Frilford in the parish of Marcham. Especially John and Mary Brown, having children around 1790-1805.
There's a burial for a Mary in 1811, aged 42, living in Frilford, wife of John.
I'm not sure about John.

I know it's a long shot but I was wondering if any Browns from Frilford/Marcham left wills.
Does anyone have access to the Berkshire wills index?

Thanks in advance

Glamorganshire Lookup Requests / 1840 - St David's Catholic Church, Cardiff
« on: Tuesday 10 January 17 17:12 GMT (UK)  »
Hello everyone  ;)

I have a (partial?) transcript of the marriage of Andrew Powel and Bridget Coquely on 1st August 1840 at St David's Roman Catholic Church in Cardiff.
I wanted to know any information about the couple's fathers, if this is included in the original record.

I contacted Glamorgan Record Office, and the priest seems to have neglected his duty to send in copies for the marriages for the whole September quarter of 1840, so there was never a marriage certificate at Cardiff record office.

Does anyone have access to images of the original register to see what information was recorded? I'd be most grateful.

The Common Room / The term nephew/niece and grandson/grandaughter in 1738
« on: Thursday 15 December 16 17:49 GMT (UK)  »
Hello everyone. I'm looking at wills and doing this  :D

How likely is it in 1738, someone would use the term nephew for grandson and niece for grandaughter.

It would seem, looking at other records, that the people he mentions are grandchildren, but I don't want to see things that aren't there!

Berkshire Lookup Requests / Hannah Gibbons, marriage 1838 Radley, Berkshire
« on: Wednesday 14 December 16 19:23 GMT (UK)  »
Hello everyone

I'd be interested to know a few details about this one.
Hannah Gibbons married William Wilkins 8 Oct 1838 in Radley.
I was wondering who the witnesses were and whether Hannah signed or made a mark.

There's a chance Hannah is the sister of an ancestor of mine, Sarah Gibbons.
When Sarah married in Iffley, one of the witnesses was a Hannah Gibbons.

Thanks for any help
