Anglesey / Gravestone translation
« on: Thursday 13 July 17 15:40 BST (UK)  »
Hi, Thomas Roberts (1802-1860) was my ggggrandfather. He was a blacksmith in Newborough. I found his gravestone behind the Ebeneser chapel in Newborough. I think it says C Jones was his mum, who died 1849 aged 99. This would have her age 51-2 when he was born. This doesn't sound right (?)
Also, who would Catherine Pierce be?

In welsh it says-
C Jones / mam T Roberts Gof / a fu farw 16 lon 1849 / yn 99 oed/
Hefyd T Roberts / a fu farw 5 Mawrth 1860 / yn 58 oed

Hefyd/ Catherine Pierce / yr hon a fu farw yr 51 O / Gorphenaf 1886 yn 38 / mlwydd oed

Hope someone can help me understand things better.

Anglesey / Newborough 1890's
« on: Sunday 05 February 17 12:44 GMT (UK)  »
My nan was enrolled into Newborough school in 1896 when she was 4.

Anglesey School admission register -
date of admission 31/1/1898
Anne E Williams
16 Harp St
father Robert
date of birth 12/1/1893 (?)
previous school Newborough
transfer to girls dept 1898

Newborough school (in Llanfairpg)
Date of admission - 26/10/96, Ann Ellen Williams
Father; Robert, address ; shop isa
Date of birth; 12/1/92
Her half-brother John Hugh Williams was admitted at same time.

I'm hoping someone will be able to help with a few questions I have:-

She enrolled in 1896 when she was 4, and the school was apparently in Llanfairpg. Did the school move to Newborough in 1898, or did my nan move from infants to juniors?

In 1896, her dad lived at "shop Isa", anyone know what this would be?

In 1898 they were living at 16 Harp Street, anyone know where this was, as I can't find it on Google maps.

Thanks, John

Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / Richard Deville of Spalding
« on: Friday 23 December 16 03:55 GMT (UK)  »
Richard Deville (sometimes Devol or something inbetween) was my ancestor who died in Spalding in 1616 and is said to be buried in Spalding churchyard. He's my farthest back ancestor that I know of and I'm looking for any birth details (around 1530-1540 ?). I think he married in Spalding about 1560-5. In his will, it says he was a yeoman and sounds like he was well-to-do.

Any help finding information on him would be much appreciated.

Cumberland / Muncaster marriage bond
« on: Friday 12 December 14 12:18 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I have a marriage bond for the marriage of John Ramsay and Jane Brown in 1787. I can't make out a bit of the handwriting. It looks to me to read "Jane Brown of Wholes (?) in the parish of Muncaster"
Perhaps someone with local knowledge or better eyes can enlighten me?

Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / Messingham marriage 1755
« on: Saturday 22 February 14 17:14 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, found a marriage on Familysearch site between William Templeton and Eleanor Foster at Messingham (in North Lincolnshire, I believe) in 1755.
The William Templeton in my tree was a tailor, born about 1735, and later had children Mary (1756) and William (1762) while being a tailor in South Lynn, Norfolk.

Does anyone have marriage records for this parish at that time, because hopefully they would include the grooms occupation.
Any other thoughts on this family would be appreciated.
Thanks, John

Anglesey / Bodfean, Caernavon
« on: Monday 17 February 14 12:54 GMT (UK)  »
Hi I have two ancestors (Thomas Roberts & Catherine Jones) who, I think (on Ancestry), were married in Bodfean, Caernavon in 1803. If they were my relatives they lived in Newborough (on Anglesey). I know a lot of Newborough registrations were made in Caernavon around this time, but can anyone tell me where Bodfean, Caernavon is please?

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help needed with latin (?) portion of 1616 will
« on: Thursday 27 December 12 13:42 GMT (UK)  »
With the help of experts on here, I am able to understand the body of this 1616 will, but it has a latin (?) piece at the end which I would love to be able to understand. Any help would be much appreciated.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Need a 1616 will reading
« on: Wednesday 26 December 12 13:27 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I've obtained a 1616 will of my (about) 11x ggrandfather but can hardly understand a word. It's over 2 pages, with a final piece in what maybe latin.

For copyright reasons I can't post the will, so please PM me if you can help.
Thanks, John

The Common Room / Reading a 1600's will
« on: Sunday 23 December 12 11:34 GMT (UK)  »
Just received a will of my 10x ggrandfather Thomas Devol (spellings vary) of Spalding, Lincolnshire. Unfortunately it is written in 1600's english. I can make out a few words, but wondered / hoped that someone in this forum can help with what is written. My ancestor is his son William, who I believe was left 8-5s and (further down) some other stuff. The will says that Thomas was a labourer - does that mean a farm labourer, or something else?

Also recieved a will of his father Richard, who was a yeoman (?) - but the wills are not on A4 size paper (!) so it's taken a while getting this first one to a size I can upload (much help from my daughter). Second will will hopefully follow - it's also got a bit in what looks like latin.

Any help gratefully received  :)
