Berkshire / Herbert John Belcher bapt. 1892 East Hagbourne - where now??
« on: Thursday 17 January 19 05:40 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All,

Can anyone please help in finding  what happened to Herbert John Belcher?
He was bapt. in 1892 East Hagbourne to Frederick Belcher & Emma (nee Froude). In 1907 he joined the GWR as a clerk leaving in Sep 1911. He appears in the 1911 census as a boarder in Acton, Middx but I have no idea where he went from there.

There is a 1939 Register entry for a Herbert J Belcher running the "Marquis of Granby"  pubilc house in Lincolnshire which could be him with a wife (Ruth)  & son  but somehow I have my doubts.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any more knowledge or can find more records.
I suppose if I could find marriage for him it might reveal the name of his father.

Any help will be than appreciated.
(Have tried Anc..y, F/Search, FreeReg, FreeBMD no success)


Berkshire / Henry frude/Froud marriage about 1885-1895 approx
« on: Thursday 03 January 19 12:31 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,

In my tree I have a Henry Frude/Froud bapt. 1865 Compton, Berks (s/o Joseph & Mary Ann) who I thought had married a Ruth Brunsdon in 1887.

But the marriage cert. of Henry Frude/Ruth Brunsdon clearly shows his father as George Frude.
Unless an incorrect name has been used.
I cannot find a George Frude other than a bapt.. in 1888

Can anyone please help in finding another marriage for Henry.

Many thanks in advance


England / looking for marriage of Albert Belcher to Elizabeth (Allcock??) abt 1866
« on: Sunday 30 December 18 23:09 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All,

Hope all readers had an enjoyable xmas.

I'm trying to fill in some missing info regarding a marriage of Albert Belcher to Elizabeth (Allcock??)
about 1866 possibly in Oxfordshire.

Iv'e tried Ancy, FreeBMD, F/Search without any success.

I have Elizabeth in the 1861 census for St.Ebbe, Oxford and again in the 1871 this time with Albert Belcher, Eliza, & 2 dtrs.

Going backwards  Elizabeth's  parents came from Derbyshire, (father is John Allcock, mother Lydia and siblings) with the later children all born in St.Ebbe, Oxon.

In the 1881 she is with Albert and her father John Allcock born Derby and 5 children.

Can anyone please find a marriage for Albert Belcher to Elizabeth Alcock about 1866. He was born in Berks and spent most of his time in Oxon where his children were born (either St.Barnabas or St.Ebbe).

Iv'e tried all variations of names even just using surnames and each time have drawn a blank.

Any help most appreciated.

Happy new year to all,


Suffolk / James Ribbons - born abt 1840 Suffolk - marr Eliza ??
« on: Friday 14 December 18 04:44 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,

James Ribbans b1840 Ipswich is in the 1871 census for Kensington, London (transcribed as Kibbons)  with wife Eliza, same age, also born Suffolk (Witton?) together with dau Fanny and a Sarah Sheldrick aged 20 sister (presumably of Eliza).

Is anyone able to help with a marriage of James as I'm trying to see if he fits into my tree, please?

I haven't been able to narrow down his birth/bapt as yet nor can I find any other censues in which he/they appear. I've used Kibbons also in case that variation has been continued, without success.

Help most appreciated,


Suffolk / Charles Ribbans - marriage - to Ann ?? 1861-1870 suffolk
« on: Wednesday 12 December 18 02:56 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,
I'm trying to tidy up my tree and have a Charles Ribbans b1839 Blakenham (s/o James & Eliza) and is married to Ann ?   sometime between 1861 and 1880. In 1861 he is single aged 23 & a Thrash Mach. Driver. I don't have the 1871 census.
In the 81 census he is living in St.Pancras, as an engine fitter,  with  5 children  born either Ipswich (abt 1864) and Greenwich Kent 1867 - 1875
I'm not sure, but using FreeReg, FreeBMD, Ancy & F/s and the GRO I think he might have married an Ann Norfolk,  as that is the mmn when checking the GRO refs. for 3 children all born in Kent.

Can anyone please find a marriage for me?


Wiltshire Lookup Requests / Locating marriage Eliz Jane Chequer to ? Perk 1885-1900
« on: Sunday 02 December 18 05:16 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All,

I have problem regarding a marriage sometime between 1885 & 1900 approx.

Amongst the many names my wife has in her tree is an Eliza Jane Chequer. She was born 1872 (18-2-1872 per 1939 register) in the Cricklade dist. to William & Mary Ann).

Recently I came across a marriage certificate that lists Eliza Perk (d/o William Chequer - dec'd) marrying Maurice Twining 19-11-1901 in Wroughton, Wilts. They are listed as Widower & Widow.

I can find details about Maurice Twining's 1st wife etc. but am having great difficulty in finding out
anything regarding Eliza's 1st marriage. Initially I thought it may have been an error (widow) but
she actually signs "Eliza Perk" in the register.

I've tried F/Search, FreeBMD, FreeReg and Ancy all with no success.

Any help with this problem would be most appreciated.


Berkshire / William Elderfield - married about 1710-1714 Berks
« on: Tuesday 27 November 18 08:55 GMT (UK)  »
Help with a brick wall, please.

William Elderfield bapt. 1691 Harwell  had 8 children that I know of,  between 1713/14 and 1736 with a wife named Mary all in Harwell. Does anyone know who he married, please?

The nearest I have come up with is a Mary Hopkins who came from Lambourn but still not found a
date or any other info to confirm this.

There are some trees on Ancy who list his wife as Mary Woodley, but,  she married William Belcher in West Hanney 12-11-1711.

Any help most appreciated.


World War Two / service records WW2 - WRENS
« on: Sunday 11 November 18 09:00 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,

Does anyone know if the service records for WW2 personnel are available on-line?

I've just found out that my friends mother was a WRN and was land-based in Wales.
Like a common problem, nothing much was spoken about these years and consequently knowledge
is missing.
Any help  most appreciated.


London and Middlesex / Help wanted - Samuel Paul Hunt Hayward & Mary Ann 1840s
« on: Friday 19 October 18 10:22 BST (UK)  »
Hello all,

Help wanted - I thought I had it all sorted out correctly; In my tree I have an Elizabeth Hunt Hayward born 6-9-1847 Southwark,  d/o Samuel Paul Hunt Hayward & Mary Ann,  Engineer.

She  marries Thomas Theodore Talley in 1868 who dies in 1875 and lists her father as above but now a Printer. Eliza then marries Walter Belcher as a widow in 1879 with her father same name as above but his occupation now appears to be Stoker.

I have found a marriage for Sam'l Paul hunt Haywood to Mary Anne Musgrave in 1827 Stepney, London

In the 1841 census Sam'l Hayward is recorded as a "watchmaker" with Elizabeth aged 6

In the 1851 census for Sam'l Hayward he is an engine driver with dau   Eliza aged 3

In the 1871 census Sam'l Hayward  is with a "Viegra" family as father-in-law a retired Engineer
A son   Richard Hunt Hayward marries in 1862 with father Engineer

I've now found evidence of Elizabeth Hunt Hayward marrying a Joseph Viegra in 1862 with father as above  an Engineer.

Am I right in thinking there are 2 x families with same father & mother's name?

I'm totally confused and any help in sorting out will be appreciated.
