Bedfordshire Lookup Requests / Original marriage record in Maulden Bedfordshire 1856
« on: Thursday 08 March 18 23:54 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone have access to, or know where I can see online, the original marriage registers in Maulden, Bedfordshire?
I need to see the original register copy for the marriage of David ODELL to Ann(e) COLEMAN.
They married on the 8 Mar 1856 in Maulden.
In case someone says it is on familysearch, I cannot see the image on there, someone has the transcript of the marriage attached to the tree on there but I need the original image in order to verify I have the correct one.

Can someone please tell me the name of the street that St Nicholas Church, Cherington, Gloucestershire is in? I know the postcode is GL8 8SN, but I can't seem to find a name for the street that it is located on.
Thank you.

Hi there,
I have a place I cannot decipher or find on a death record from Headford, Tuam, Galway, Ireland.
I think it begins with an 'E'.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Canada Lookup Request / FEE family in Dunham, Quebec
« on: Friday 14 January 11 19:50 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me ?  ???

I am trying to find out what happened to Patrick and Margaret FEE, who came to Canada from County Fermanagh, I believe they went to Dunham, Quebec-this is what I have:

Patrick FEE (born Dec 1888) and Margaret/Maggie/Marguerite GREENE (nee CRODEN/CRUDDEN) were made to marry others despite them being in love. They apparently left their spouses in the 1920's and eloped together with her children. I can find no records of their journey on the passenger records sites that I have access to.

There is a burial of a Patrick FEE, age 18 months, son of Patrick FEE and Maggie CRODEN at Ste. Croix, Dunham Catholic Church, Quebec in 1925, which I am sure is their son.
Following this, I found baptisms for children of this couple at this church from 1924 to 1936. The father is always Patrick FEE, and the mother is listed as Maggie/Margaret/Marguerite CRODEN/CRUDDEN.

I wonder if anyone has access to any other records of the area or church to see if there is a burial/death record of Patrick & Margaret FEE from 1936, or any other information. If the ages match, then I can be sure they are the correct couple.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Other Countries / Nukuʻalofa, Tonga-Government Printers & Post Office
« on: Sunday 22 March 09 00:06 GMT (UK)  »
Hi there,
Does anyone know where I can find records (or if anyone has access and can look it up for me I would be grateful) of who were the Government Printers and the Post Office Owners/Staff in Nukuʻalofa, Tonga in the 1920-1950's? I believe from family hearsay that they were relations somewhere along the line-so if I can find them in an index or directory etc. it would help immensely.

Many thanks, haliared

« on: Tuesday 18 November 08 01:42 GMT (UK)  »
Hi there, :D
I wonder if any kind and clever person can tell me what the following mean on a Medal Record Card I have for World War One.
I have the Rank as Gnr (I presume Gunner), and the Corps RFA. (I presume Royal Field Artillery)

Under the medal section I have listed :
Victory : Roll =RFA/152B ; Page 10373
British : Roll = RFA/152B ; Page 10373
Handwritten in red the number 15 by Star: RFA/23 A+B ; Page 7928.
Theatre of War first served in = (5H)
Date of entry therein: 17.8.15

If anyone can decipher the above it would help me immensely. Many thanks for looking, and for any help with this.

Sussex Lookup Requests / Marriage Look-up Please ELPHICK William to POLHILL Annie
« on: Thursday 23 October 08 02:32 BST (UK)  »
Hello there, I am trying to find the marriage of William ELPHICK born c. 1841 in Hastings, Sussex to Annie/Anne/Ann POLHILL born c. 1841 Sedlescombe, Sussex.
I did think that it may have been Jul 1860 Hastings 2b 30, but this was not the correct one, the GRO did the check for me, but although the bride was Annie POLHILL, the groom was someone else.  :-\
Their (first child that I know of) son William was born in Sedlescombe, Sussex in 1860, and William senior had died when his son Sydney was born on 14 Jun 1876 in Hastings, so they must have a rough marriage date range of 1856-1876.

I have both of them in censuses from 1861 onwards, when they list themselves as a family and married but without the fathers names from the marriage I find it hard to track back further to be certain. I am sure that Annie's father is Spencer POLHILL, but I need to confirm this, and there are too many possibilities for William for me to make a guess and spend a lot of time and money tracking the wrong branch !

Thanks for looking, haliared

Scotland / Marriage Look-up in Scotland please COMPLETED thankyou Gadget
« on: Tuesday 21 October 08 16:22 BST (UK)  »
Hi there, I wonder if some kind person can look-up a marriage for me in Scotland.
The person I am looking for is Emily Beatrice DERMOTT, and in 1901 she was at 736 Pollokshaws Road, Kinning Park Burgh, Govan, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland, but by Jan 1941 she was surnamed WHITTLE and was living back in England.
I have searched all of the GRO index marriage records for England and Wales but she is not on there ( I have the certificate for Emily DERMOTT to Charles EVELEIGH in 1919, as I thought that she could have been married first, but this is not the correct Emily ).
Many thanks for all your help.
