World War One / 1/19th Battalion London Regiment information?
« on: Friday 08 August 14 21:50 BST (UK)  »
For the centenary of WW1 I am researching my Grandmothers favourite Uncle; George Herbert Hayward of the 1/19th Battalion London Regiment who died 12th july 1917. He is buried at Bailleul Cemetery, France (info I found previously through the CWGC.) I have spent a thrilling afternoon reading the Battalion War Diaries downloaded from the National Archives which seems to suggest he may have died of wounds received in the trenches at Battlewood on 11th July. From scouring the internet this seems to be an area near Hill 60 at Zillebeke, Belgium. (I knew none of this this morning!) I've been looking for further info and have come across two different regimental numbers for him (or perhaps there were two George Herbert Haywards in the 19th London!) From his grave I have 613240 and from a medal Roll Index card I found 613050. This is my first dable into Military records, can anyone with more knowledge of the London Regiment help me find anything more or solve the two regimental number mystery? Thank you.

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / James Conrad Flood 1865
« on: Sunday 11 December 11 10:16 GMT (UK)  »
Hi rootschatters, I've been asked by a family member to research her grandfather James Conrad Flood (b; Jun (qtr) 1865 W. London) but I no longer have an ancestry subscription so was wondering if you kind people would take a look at the 1871, 81 & 91 census's for him. All I know is that he was born 1865 as above and died in Watford in 1894. I also found a marriage date of 1888 in Chelsea to either an Ellen or a Lucilla Sarah. He was a publican in the Rickmansworth/Watford area around 1890 and had a son also named James. Any help would be gratefully received.

Would any of you kind & gifted souls please crop & soften the edges (is that called feathering?) of my sons playgroup photo. I am planning to give it as a prezzie to his grandparents but I dont like the bottom half of the photo with the giraffe. The frame has an oval aperture 4"x6" and ideally I'd like head & shoulders. Many thanks in advance.  :)

Hampshire & Isle of Wight / St Michaels? Where?
« on: Tuesday 26 June 07 17:23 BST (UK)  »
On the 1851 census one of my 3x GRt Grandfathers birthplace is given as St Michael, Hampshire, born 1799.
He and his family lived in Portsea and from the census he will have been a sailor as he is a Greenwich pensioner. Does any local Hampshire bod have any idea where St Michael would have been or indeed still is, is it maybe a parish in Portsmouth or another place altogether?  I am struggling to understand or find anything conclusive that pin points where it is/was.
His wife is from Liss and they married at St Thomas's Portsmouth if that helps at all :-\

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / My Grandad and Grt Grandad.
« on: Thursday 21 June 07 23:19 BST (UK)  »
Hello again to all you talented photo restoration peeps, sadly no glamorous Romanian parents in law today :( this one is maybe only the second known, and before today, totally unknown to me, photo of my Grandad who sadly died 27 years before I was born. My Aunt unexpectedly produced it for me today and then very kindly handed it over to my care  (how happy am I :)) sadly it is a little the worse for wear, well it would probably have been the only snapshot my Aunt had of her Dad (my dad has the other 1!) who died when she was just 1, so it is quite precious.
My Grandad is the one in the middle with his dad to the left of him and I think one of his brothers to his right.
Will you kind souls have a go at mending the creases and perhaps brighten it up a little so we can see their faces a little clearer? I would love to thank my Aunt by sending her a restored copy which I am sure she would love. Thank you so much in anticipation.

The Lighter Side / Disappearing Britain
« on: Tuesday 29 May 07 11:15 BST (UK)  »
Not sure if this is a new series but the episode shown yesterday on History channel with Sarah Lancashire was a very warm look at the annual seaside holiday with some fabulous old footage of Blackpool and Wales in the early 1900's and the Lancashire Mill towns. It appears there were 2 more programmes made and I would definitely look out for them if they are as nicely made as the first  :).

Just returned from visiting my Father in Law and managed to acquire a couple of beautiful pictures of him and my late Mother in law in their younger days. Could you kind souls give them a clean and repair, not a lot needed doing but think they could both look better. If someone feels generous would love for the B&W one to be similarly tinted or the colour one to be made B&W so I can frame them sort of matching side by side. Many thanks.... JK

London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / What was Ann HAYWARD's Maiden Name?
« on: Thursday 09 November 06 13:43 GMT (UK)  »
I am framing a 6 generation 'Ancestral Arc' for my parents for Christmas and now have just one missing surname! >:( Can anyone help me finish my quest? I am looking for the maiden name of Ann Hayward or perhaps Mary Ann Hayward. This is what I have so far;

Ann (c 1811 middlesex) and her husband William Hayward (c1809 cheshire), occupation Tailor are on the 1851 census in Holborn, St George the Matyr with children
Edward 1833,
Charles 1835
and Agnes 1848
and wifes Sister Sarah Hunter 1813.

In 1861 I find Sarah Hunter, widow at 34 Phoneix Street in St Pancras with
Charles Hayward, son, Tailor (should be nephew!),
Agnes (now Hunter), daughter 1847,
Claria Hunter, niece 1855,
Henry Hunter, son 1853.

RG9/piece 173/folio98/page22
On the 1861 I also found a William Hayward 1809 Knutsford Cheshire with a Mary Ann Hayward 1810 but Sunderland Durham not Middlesex in Bloomsbury but with no other children!!  He is however a Tailor.

RG10/piece 227/folio75/page54
In 1871 Charles Hayward is the head in Stanmore Street St Pancras with wife Elizabeth,
Agnes Hunter 1846 cousin,
Clarice Hunter 1855, cousin
and Henry Hunter 1853, cousin.
So assume Sarah has died.

I have Charles and Elizabeth Haywards wedding certificate which confirms the Phoenix Street address. I also found 7 Hayward children including my Charles Samuel to a William and Mary Ann Hayward on St Pancras Pallots baptisms between 1827-1835 but can not find them on 1841 census!! The family occupation was Tailor and I know they were mainly from the St Pancras area, Charles Samuel went on to be tailor at St Pancras workhouse. I have been unable to find more and as it is all before the 1837 start of certification am beginning to think it is impossible. I have tried tracing the other children but am not getting anywhere. Any help ideas greatfully received.
