The Common Room / Marriage venues in 1849
« on: Yesterday at 09:16 »
I have been searching for a marriage which took place in the Swindon area in Q3 1849 without success. Searches have all been in the 17 Church of England parishes concerned. At that time where else might one be permitted to marry?
Thanks, Toby.

Wiltshire / The Pinnocks of Hannington
« on: Sunday 19 August 18 12:01 BST (UK)  »
I would welcome opinions as to ages of the 2 last entries (ages always seem to be suspect in 1841) and the name of the last. I suspect that the last is also not a Pinnock but maybe that is wishful thinking.

Dorset / Osmington Baptism
« on: Tuesday 14 August 18 12:06 BST (UK)  »
In the margin of this register appears the attached. I have seen this space used for date of birth but this is something new for me.  An earlier page suggests this may mean 'received into the church'. If so what does that mean? Doesn't baptism mean being received into the church. Thanks, Toby.

Family History Beginners Board / HO 107 etc
« on: Monday 13 August 18 11:49 BST (UK)  »
We now have 2 instances where people trying to help us find something quote e.g.
" see HO107 1861 429 p5".
We would be pleased to know how to go about opening that page on Ancestry.
Thanks, T & daughter.

Dorset / Parish of Symondsbury
« on: Monday 13 August 18 09:54 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if anyone can put  me in the right direction for this parish in the 1851 Census. Lists of parishes don't show Symondsbury nor Chideock for that matter. Thanks, Toby.

Cornwall / Rule Family from Camborne
« on: Wednesday 08 August 18 10:23 BST (UK)  »
I have found several William Rules from Camborne but would like to link one with the William who settled in U.S. The ship's manifest doesn't show very clearly William's second initial. Does anyone recognise this Rule branch?
Thanks, toby.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Samuel Hornblow Will of 1671
« on: Friday 03 August 18 17:20 BST (UK)  »
I am concerned that the underlined name may be transcribed by me to suit other facts. I would be very pleased therfore if other opinions could be expressed.
Another interesting feature of this Will is that it states "after the decease of my father". This suggests that Samuel was not very old when he died. This supports the nmes of his sons that I would like to see. Hence again my wish for an unbiased opinion. Thanks, Toby.

London and Middlesex / Bethnal Green Order of Removal
« on: Wednesday 01 August 18 22:13 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if anyone can guide me concerning the codes written on this Order of Removal from Bethnal Green Poor Law Union.
Thanks, Toby.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / 1671 Will of Roger Hornblow of Thacham, Berks.
« on: Wednesday 01 August 18 11:58 BST (UK)  »
Would anyone agree that this is the start of a will for it seems rather different from anything I have yet seen? It is also more of a scrawl  too making it quite difficult to read. Thanks, Toby.
