Northumberland / Foulden, Coldstream, Hutton - New Britain
« on: Tuesday 17 July 18 08:10 BST (UK)  »
Hi there
Does anyone know what the words New Britain after the above parishes refer to? In the late 1700s. Only New Britain I know of, and google suggests is New Britain off Papua New Guinea but possibly somewhere in Northumberland?

Just out of interest in some transcriptions I'm doing
Thanks

England / Royal visits to manor Charles 1 prior and during Civil War
« on: Wednesday 11 July 18 08:28 BST (UK)  »
Hi there

Wasn't sure where to put this query. Wondering if one of my ancestors, a Charles 1 supporter, and was supposedly with him at Southam the day prior to Battle of Edge Hill

I have heard at times of where Royalty visited when they moved with their Court around the country but haven't the first inkling of where to look. My ancestor was Walter Gostelow and his home was at Cropredy Warwickshire
Many thanks for any help

Northumberland / Population of towns 1713
« on: Tuesday 12 June 18 06:26 BST (UK)  »
Hi
I'm doing some transcriptions from the 17C/18C and there are many names that are frequent. Plus a few twins

Just to make it more interesting I wonder if there is anywhere where populations might be listed for some of the following please:

Flodden, Ford, Heathersland, Crookham. Eatel Cartfordlaw

Thanks

Australia / Sydney Water Police Records
« on: Monday 04 June 18 08:32 BST (UK)  »
Hi there
I wonder if anyone know of the above in the NSW Records? I have searched the website and no mention, emailed the Police Museum and they put me through to City Curators who weren't able ot help

Looking for a possible "sign-in" for my 2nd GGrandfather when he was arrested for attempted suicide (slitting his throat!") 16 Jul 1890 and sentenced to 2 mths prison in Sydney or Darlinghurst Gaol in Aug 1890. I understand that his picture may have been taken for a sentence over 3 mths but wonder if they have an sign-in or admission ledger so I could at least see his signature as I don't have nay photos

Many thanks for any guidance. His name was John GOSTELOW and there are a myriad of sp.

Baptisms, South Shields District - Record Number: 646422.0
Location: Jarrow
Church: St. Paul
Denomination: Anglican
16 Jul 1780 Margaret Anderson, daughter of Thomas Anderson, baptized at Heworth

Many thanks

Durham / Cold Knuckle near Quarrington
« on: Thursday 26 April 18 07:06 BST (UK)  »
Hi
Have the above place/town/area as birthplace for my Isabella MUSGRAVE in 1855. Have searched many maps etc and unable to find a reference. Isabella's father was a miner - was this the name of a mine perhaps? Have looked at some of the mining history/museum sites without luck. I think it may be an old mine - would that be entered as the place of birth or might there be some houses?

If anyone has some information, possibly direct me to a 1855 map, it would be great, just that it is an interesting name and must be derived from something!
Many thanks

Durham / Birth year Robert MUSGRAVE Durham ? 1832 or 1839
« on: Thursday 26 April 18 06:49 BST (UK)  »
Hi

I wonder if anyone can help please? I am looking at Robert and wondering if the transcription via An... is correct with bap 6 Jan 1839 at Stockton on Tees Holy Trinity. Son of Robert MUSGRAVE and Phoebe (various sp) HOLT

Another source (Durham Records Online) says St Thomas' Stockton 1832. This date gels with his age on his MC and DC but can only find it mentioned there and not on an PPV sites. Can understand he may be bap 7yrs after birth but would like to find a a parish register transcription/image if possible

Many thanks for your time
