The Common Room / Is it possible to be baptised twice?
« on: Monday 30 October 17 18:23 GMT (UK)  »
Not sure if i've gone wrong somewhere?
Wondering why he would be baptised twice, & the cloth draper/labourer profession makes me wonder if i have 2 families?

I'm looking at the baptism/s for John Hall Parkin  at St Mark, Woodhouse Leeds
there are 2:  10 Dec 1850 to John Parkin Cloth Dresser & Elizabeth
then 8th June 1851 to John Parkin labourer & the Late Elizabeth
There is a birth for John Hall Parkin 1850 Leeds mmn Hall, this matches a Marriage between Elizabeth Hall & John Parkin Cloth Draper. 25th December 1840
there are 2 other baptisms for John & Elizabeth cloth draper at St Marks, Emma 9/3/1845 Alfred 24/12/1848

Then at St Marks there is a baptism for the John Hall Parkin to John & Elizabeth Parkin labourer & James Parkin 22/5/1843 (died 1843) checking on the gro James mmn is Hall. Alfred & Emma also have Hall as mmn

Does any one know if what would be the local paper for Pilning circa 1918? I'm trying to find out the story of why local lad Gilbert Rowland Humphries was awarded a Military Medal for Bravery, all that i can see documented is a mention in the London Gazette 13/9/1918.


Armed Forces / Gilbert Rowland Humphries .. Bravery Medal???
« on: Tuesday 15 August 17 13:53 BST (UK)  »
/Hello all,
A friend has me looking up a relative who they are convinced received a bravery medal during WW1. I am not so good at looking at Military records but i can't see one, wondering if i missed something? I checked the Gazette but again couldn't see anything.
Gilbert Rowland Humphries DOB  29/9/1898, i have him being in the Machine Gun Corps as a Pte serial number 142829 10/Glouc
i can see that he had the star, war & victory medals.
There is another Gilbert R Humphries who has me a little confused He was with the Worcester 40239 after transferring form the Gloucester Yeomanry 3289. He also received the usual medals.. i wondered if this could be the same chap but then he wouldn't receive the same medals again would he???

I am awaiting a picture of the medals, but thought i could get a heads up with your help.


The Common Room / John Dodd, Druggist Chester
« on: Friday 02 June 17 15:21 BST (UK)  »
Hello, i am trying to look for details on John Dodd.
I have 3 baptism records for children of John Dodd & Mary. All the records are for St Oswald in Cheshire & say that John is a Druggist from Northgate Street.
The children are
John 1819
William 1821
George 1822
looking at records, i can see a John Dodd of Northgate St in 1841 who is a School Master, news paper records 1806 John Dodd Northgate St flour dealer, 1851 Johnn Dodd  Northgate St confectionery manufacturer, I can't find any mention of a druggist though. Can anyone see if they can find him?

I have another link on the Dodd's here regarding William Dodd & his family missing in census returns.
but it won't apply to this.

Armed Forces / mothers death cert in WW1 records
« on: Wednesday 31 May 17 20:02 BST (UK)  »
Just curious, any idea why a mothers death certificate would be in the son's WW1 records? He enlisted 1915 & she passed 1916.  There is also a memo asking for reimbursement of the certificate as well.
