London and Middlesex / Ada Rose Peck bapt. 1892 Berks - married 1914 Fulham
« on: Monday 16 April 18 05:46 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,
I'm trying to find the place of marriage for Ada Rose Peck who married Frank Osborne in 1914 in Fulham, London (Mar , vol;1a, Page; 584).

I'm trying to find more about her as my wife's gran some times referred to her friend Ada.

They were both born & bapt. in Wilts and in 1911 were both nurse maids (domestic) for an Antigues Dealer in West Kensington, London.

FreeReg, Anc..y  have not provided any places other than Fulham so I'm wondering if anyone else might be able to say where they married. I have a suspicion it may have been a Registry Office wedding but nothing to go on.

As she is not in my tree, as yet, i'm reluctant to buy a marr. cert.


Wiltshire / Wilts Baptism - Nanny Sleey abt 1760
« on: Wednesday 11 April 18 00:08 BST (UK)  »
H all,

I have a marriage of a Nanny Sleey to Stephen Palmer 7-10-1777 in Purton.

I'm having trouble in finding a possible baptism for Nanny and wonder if anyone could help.
I believe "Nanny" may be a Hanny or Fanny but the original register clearly states Nanny.
H all,

I should add I have found several entries for "Sly" which could  be the correct name  but nothing comes up for Nanny only Ann.

Any most appreciated.

shown on the attched screenshot (arrowed).

It looks like "Northern Starr .....   farm was buried 5th of January, but I could be completely wrong


Norfolk / Frederick Ribbans born/bapt 1798 Norwich
« on: Wednesday 21 February 18 06:05 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,

Can anyone please help me in finding where Frederick Rebband was bapt. (I suspect his surname has been mis-read and should read Ribbans) Attached below is a screenshot of an entry from F/S.
I have looked thru all the Norwich registers beginning with St.Peter..... without any success  following the entry in the 1871 census

This person went under several name changes and starting in 1841;
1841 Edgbaston,  Warks               - Frederick Ribbans aged 40 born "in the city"                                           occu.    School M??
1851  St.Peter, Carmarthenshire   -Frederick  Bolingbroke Ribbans aged 50 born ??Glamorgan Chilton          "        School master
1861 Clewer, Berks                       -John       Bo"n??           Ribbans aged 60    "  England                                 "        Gentleman LCD??
1871       "         "                            - Frederick Bolingbroke Ribbans aged 70    "  Norwich St.Peter                    "        Land Dividends, Annuities
1881       "         "                            -Frederick Ribbans aged 80                         "  Norwich Norfolk                      "        blank

He married firstly Rebecca East 31-12-1818 in Lavenham, Suffolk under the names of Frederick Henry Ribbans.

Rebecca Ribbans (nee East is buried 20-8-1821 Lavenham, Suffolk.

They have a s/o  East Frederick Thomas Ribbans bapt 15-2-1820 Lavenham, Suffolk

Frederick Ribbans (no other names) marries Harriet Williams 2-1-1824 In St.Marylebone, Middx (she came from Salop,  and they have a daughter Arabella  bapt 4-1-1826 Hopton,

He seems to have been a school master in Lavenham, moved to London and eventually became school master at at a grammar school in Wales.
and from  1860s transferred/retired to Clewer In Berks and lived with his dau and s/o -in-law.

I'm not sure he connects to my "Ribbans" family as they mostly hail from Suffolk but with his mother's maiden name of Horsley is an interest I have because my 3 x ggrandmother also went by Horsley.

Any help will be most appreciated,


Wiltshire / looking for bapts. of children of William & Mary Chequers 1863 -1882 in Wilts
« on: Wednesday 07 February 18 12:52 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,
Can I get some help, please,  in finding the baptisms of the children of William & Mary Ann Chequer.
I have them in the various censuses 1871 thru to 1891 and in all cases they were born Cliffe Pypard;
they are;
Elizabeth aged 8    ]        (1871 cen.)
Francis       "    4     ]
Ann            "    1     ]

Frank         "    14         ]      (1881 cen)
Ann           "     12         ]
Louisa       "      6          ]
Edward      "     12 mths]

Frank         "     23     ]      (1891)
Louise        "     16     ]

I have looked thru the original registers on Ancy and did not find any baptisms entries in the registers for Cliffe Pypard, BroadTown, Lydiard Tregoze or Brinkworth.

On F/Search they have 2 baptisms in Brinkworth for George 24-3-1882 and Edward 12-7-1879 as sons of William & MaryAnn but they do not show in the original registers either.

So - where do F/Search get their info from?
Could it be they were not baptised at all, or is it that I haven't looked in the right places.

Any assistance most appreciated.


Suffolk / Charles Ribbans - m - Sara ?? , 1842 Suffolk
« on: Thursday 01 February 18 05:15 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,
I have a Charles Ribbans who appears to have married a Sarah in 1842 in Suffolk.

I'm trying to see if he fits into my "Ribbans" tree, if at all, and wondered if SKS could fill in some of the details.

Where married, when,  who  (anc...y trees say a Sarah Rozier 27-11-1842) and father's names
if at all possible.

Many thanks,


Hi all,
Would anyone please be able to help with the above marriage in the Dec 1841 St.George, Hanover Sq.
I have an old family bible listing Elizabeth Mitchell who died 210-5-1852 in London aged 42  and buried in Grove, Berks. Elizabeth was the d/o John Saunders  and it looks like she married Peter Mitchell in the dec 1841 Hanover Sq.
I have no other info on "Mitchell"  and cannot even find him in a census record for 1841 or 51.

I thought  these registers were available for viewing on Anc...y but have had no success there or on the IGI.

Elizabeth is only twig on my tree and am reluctant to  buy her cert.

Any help will be most welcome.


Suffolk / Mary Howard married 1825 Wickham Skeith
« on: Monday 18 December 17 00:24 GMT (UK)  »
Hi and greetings to all.

I have a Mary Howard who married 1825 as above, to John Berry. In all the censuses 1851,61,81 she says she was born in Cotton about c1806-8.
I have been unable to find her birth/baptism in the Cotton transcripts so I'm wondering if her name has been transcribed correctly. All I have been able to come up with is a Mary Hayward bapt. 19-9-1806 d/o Phillis with father Sam'l Stringer. These two married 2 months later in Nov 1825.

Could anyone with access to the registers please look and see if her name is Howard or Hayward?

Many thanks in advance for your help.
