The Common Room / Glover - would there be any listings of these anywhere?
« on: Tuesday 12 March 19 09:43 GMT (UK)  »
My great grandmother, Anna Lush Roberts is shown on the 1851 Census as a glover.  I have info (I can't remember or find the slip of paper) that she went on to run a shop, maybe near her home in Fontmell Magna in Dorset.  So I'm wondering if there are any listings of shopkeepers etc in 19th century archives anywhere.
Help please, I am in Western Australia and a bit far away to search on the ground.

The Common Room / UK Wills - 19th Century
« on: Saturday 31 March 18 09:30 BST (UK)  »
Can someone please tell me if there is a site I can use to check out a will - my great-great-grandfather - who died sometime after 1861?
I'm sure there would have been a will, he was from a 'comfortable' family.  My great grandfather, his son, left a nice amount between his three daughters.
All help really appreciated.

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me - approximately - the current value of 2116 pounds in 1891.  This was from my great grandfather's will.

Canada Lookup Request / Look-up death 1903-1909 Cole, please
« on: Saturday 30 August 14 09:51 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to find a date for the death of my grandmother, Maria Louise Cole (nee Mulliner).  I have her in England with her husband Owen Joseph Roberts Cole and 2 children in 1901.  She had another child in that year.
A very helpful Rootschatter found the family arriving in Canada in 1903 heading for Winnepeg.  Later Owen and the three children returned to England and from there on to Australia.  So Maria must have died in Canada.
Any help on this puzzle will be very much appreciated.

Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Work House records Hampshire
« on: Monday 28 April 14 04:29 BST (UK)  »
This has probably been requested before, but I hope someone can help me.  Where can I find records of the Workhouse in Stockbridge, Hampshire - 1881 onwards?  My great great uncle, Joseph Mulliner was in charge there with his wife Emily for some years.
Thanks in anticipation,

US Lookup Requests / Look-up please on 1920 Census - Mulliner
« on: Monday 28 April 14 04:19 BST (UK)  »
I would appreciate very much if someone can look up the 1820 Census for my great-aunt Charlotte Elizabeth Mulliner, born 1873 in London, England.
I have her still in England in 1901 and then sailing to the US in 1912 on the "Caronia" arriving at Ellis Island in April where she is shown as heading for New Orleans to the Presbyterian Hospital as a nurse.
I would like to know if she stayed in America permanently please.
Kind regards,

Armed Forces / Royal Marines, 1861
« on: Friday 25 April 14 07:00 BST (UK)  »
I am searching for Joseph Mulliner, born around 1829.  On his marriage certificate to Emily Mary Mills in 1861 he is listed as a corporal, Royal Marines Artillery.  Where can I look to verify this information?
Both Joseph and Emily are shown on the 1881 Census in Hampshire.  There is no sign of him on the 1871 Census so I'm wondering if he is overseas.

All help in this will be really appreciated.

Armed Forces / 76th Regiment in 1870's - looking for Thomas Hedges
« on: Wednesday 23 May 12 14:08 BST (UK)  »
In 1877 my great grandfather, Thomas Isaac Hedges was a Lance corporal in the 76th Regiment.  (This was on his marriage certificate).  I have been unable to find Thomas on the 1871 Census so am wondering if he was abroad with his regiment.  Can someone help with this query please?  I would like to know when he enlisted and then left the Army.  He was married in Kent and was still in England in 1881 and thereafter.

Hoping to tie up some loose ends with this info,

Kind regards,

Lincolnshire / Parish Records search for William Simons please
« on: Monday 25 July 11 13:31 BST (UK)  »
I am wondering if someone could please look up Parish Records for any information on William Simons. I have his birth as 'around 1811' at Denton, Lincolnshire.
I am trying to get further back with this branch of my husband's family.
He married Elizabeth Peach - born 1811 at Fulbeck, in 1831, also at Fulbeck.
I would really appreciate details if any of William's parents.
Thank you,
Kind regards,
