The Common Room / London Electoral Register 1847-1913 Annotation L.S.
« on: Thursday 27 September 18 19:29 BST (UK)  »

Kent / Rush Green ?near Wittersham Kent
« on: Saturday 07 July 18 21:34 BST (UK)  »
There is a baptism entry transcribed on the Freereg site for Wittersham, St John the Baptist, for an ancestor of my partner bap. 3rd April 1796. There is a very helpful note made by the vicar at the time. Can anyone help with the exact position of Rush Green ?
"The parents of the above were travellers. He was born upon Rush Green. They were married as appeared by a certificate at Otham by William Horne the rector 1794. The father said he belonged to Erith."
I have found two transcripts of the marriage at Otham  to a May Len or alternatively Mary Lew and I understand the Erith registers were burnt . So it looks like I have come to a dead end .
So any help about Rush Green and whether it was a traditional travellers site would be most welcome.

Lanarkshire / Worlds End, Barony, Glasgow
« on: Saturday 05 May 18 14:46 BST (UK)  »
Could anyone please give me an idea where Worlds End Barony was (or is?) . I am tracing the homes of my gg grandfather who lived at number 23 World's End in 1851. I have tried looking at some old maps but my knowledge of the geography of Glasgow is so poor that I am getting  nowhere. Any help gratefully received!!  Barbara

Can anyone please translate these headings from POW papers 1918 . Or would it be better if I posted this on the Handwriting Deciphering page ?

Cheshire / King's School Chester during ww2
« on: Sunday 25 February 18 14:44 GMT (UK)  »
My brother attended King's School Chester briefly during ww2 . I wonder if anyone knows whether the school was still in the original buildings near the cathedral at this time or was it moved elsewhere before its final move to the Wrexham Road ?
 I am making a collection of photos of places where he lived, went to school etc   I looked at the online school archive catalogue but couldn't work it out. Any help most welcome as I was born at the end of the war and we moved away soon after that,  so I have no memories from that time.

Northamptonshire / St John the Baptist Tiffield access
« on: Monday 31 July 17 15:20 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone know if there is a way to visit St John's Tiffield in mid week?  My daughter and I would like to see inside the church but we are aware that many village churches are locked up unless there is a service on. We are thinking of making a trip from Berkshire in August and it would be really helpful if we knew what to expect before we get there.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help please with this line from will
« on: Thursday 27 April 17 21:42 BST (UK)  »
I would be most grateful for help with this line from a will of 1648. Any of the line from after "houseroom lodgeings" to the next line up to "fitt for my degree"
I think I understand the general gist  but would very much like to know the exact wording.
Thank you for any input.
