Bedfordshire / John Smith of Westoning
« on: Tuesday 08 May 18 08:19 BST (UK)  »
The recent threads by Terri Jackson on our mutual ancestor James Smith prompted me to revisit his possible ancestry.

James Smith & Ann Charlton's first few children were among the early baptisms at Westoning Baptist Chapel of which Bedford Archives states
"In June 1814 [WE1737-1738] John Smith of Westoning, yeoman, conveyed a barn "lately converted into a chapel by a society of the people called Methodists residing in or near the parish of Westoning" to Thomas Millard of Flitton, yeoman, for 80."

James Smith's parents may well have been John & Elizabeth Smith with Bedford Non-conformist records showing James born 29 April 1785.

Does anyone know more of John Smith of Westoning?

« on: Monday 02 April 18 17:11 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone suggest where John WAGHORNE might have been born?
He married Mary BIST on 5 Jan 1784 at Ightham or Shipbourne and they had 7 children baptised at Shipbourne between 1794 and 1808

Sussex / HEATHFIELD baptism Waldron
« on: Saturday 31 March 18 15:54 BST (UK)  »
I have been told that my 5x great grandmother Barabara Heathfield was baptised at Waldron 7 Sep 1783 but have no other details.

Is anyone able to ascertain her parents' names please?

Buckinghamshire / Lost pubs in Burnham
« on: Saturday 31 March 18 15:03 BST (UK)  »
I recently stumbled across a listing of all the pubs in Bucks in 1872. This includes 29 pubs in Burnham (encompassing Cippenham)!
The Pubshistory site provides some clues (as indicated below) as to where some of these were located but can anyone offer more information?

While I can identify many of these from local knowledge and a previous thread on here about the Alma and the Grenville Arms I am at a loss to identify the following



Boot   High Street
Brickmakers'  Arms   Church Street? (two are listed but pubhistory has a Bricklayers Arms in Church Street)
Dropmore Inn   
Jolly Gardener   
New Inn   Dropmore
One Mile House   Bath Road,
Rose And Crown   High Street
Three Horse Shoes   
The Feathers   High Street

In addition two of the pubs are unamed with licensees JH Jarret and Alfred Heald

Dorset Lookup Requests / Henry WHITE & Elizabeth BROWN Preston 1790s
« on: Thursday 15 March 18 14:44 GMT (UK)  »
This couple married by banns at Preston on 13 Jan 1788 and had 4 children baptised there before Elizabeth died in Jan 1800. Henry appears to have been buried in Weymouth in 25 March 1832 age 70.

Their surviving sons Robert (1789-1873) and Thomas (1793-1873) were both sailors and both lived in Wyke Regis & Weymouth although Robert moved to Mylor then East Stonehouse ca.1840.

Does anyone know more of Henry or Elizabeth? I've seen the threads on Thomas and his family at Cone Street, Weymouth

Somerset / BISS- Stoke Lane near Frome
« on: Sunday 30 July 17 15:50 BST (UK)  »
Having identified Hiram BISS (1757-1796) as the father of Elizabeth it was easy to identify his baptism, in Stoke Lane as the son of Edward. However, Edward appears elusive with no other children baptised in Stoke Lane and no readily identifiable marriage or burial.

Hiram was otp when he married Martha Fry in Frome in 1781.

Any suggestions for this family?

Somerset / Elizabeth BISS born Frome ca 1781
« on: Wednesday 26 July 17 15:22 BST (UK)  »
Elizabeth BISS married Thomas Witcomb in Frome in 1802, both described as OTP
The 1851 census has her place of birth as Frome (then living with her youngest son in Stepney) and gives a year of birth of 1781.

However, neither Freereg nor FreeBMD provide any plausible baptisms. Does anyone have a BISS family in the Frome area to whom she might be connected?

Norfolk / Henry SISSEN (or SISSON) 1710-1792
« on: Monday 11 April 16 11:41 BST (UK)  »
did this Henry marry both
Sarah Sparke (1707-1751) on 24 Nov 1734
and Lydia Locksmith (1725-1812) on 30 September 1751?

Henry's burial entry describes him as a married man.

Any suggestions as to where he originated?

John BAILEY from Aylesbury married Rebecca from Cuddington ca. 1820-1821, presumably in Cuddington where their daughters were born. (Eldest I know of was born ca 1822).

Can someone locate the marriage please.
