Lancashire / Occupation Query
« on: Wednesday 05 August 15 21:40 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone tell me what a Roller Turner did please? This was my gfather's occupation on the 1901 census in Bolton and there was the word 'fitter' after it but I think the enumerator (or whoever categorised the occupations) wrote that on afterwards.
Many thanks.

World War One / Unknown Soldier
« on: Tuesday 31 August 10 15:39 BST (UK)  »
 I hope someone can help with this photo. I've no idea who this young man is, or what date the photo is, although for some reason I think he's dressed to go off to WW1. I found his photo in a 'scrapbook' that was given to my Aunt-in-Law by her mother, on the Aunt's second birthday in 1918. The photo was next to a photo of the Aunt's mother, but I don't think he is the Aunt's father if I compare him to the few photos we have of him.

If anyone can date the photo and tell me which regiment he belonged to I'd be very grateful.

Many thanks in advance.

Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / BMD lookup - William Charles HUNT
« on: Thursday 08 January 09 20:33 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone find a birth record for William Charles HUNT in 1846 or 1847 in North Rauceby please?

His marriage certificate (1869 in Digby to Jane East) shows his father was John Cook, so it may also be an entry from William Charles COOK. No idea who the mother was, although at a wild guess it could Ann Hunt.

So far I haven't been able to trace his birth, so any help gratefully received.

Many thanks

Bedfordshire Lookup Requests / Maulden Look up - SHARP
« on: Sunday 30 September 07 18:33 BST (UK)  »
I'm trying to find the parent of Francis Sharp b abt 1812 in Maulden. I'm having no luck so far, he seems to have got lost in the change over of parish registers in 1812 but maybe someone can find something for me.

I know he married Elizabeth Roberts in Clophill on 29 August 1831 & have all census details & children, it's his parentage I'm stuck on. I'd love to find out more as his great-grandson is still alive and knows nothing of his family.

Thanks in anticipation
