Thanks John. Probably not James's father then. But not the best name to identify a specific person.

Bedfordshire / John Smith of Westoning
« on: Tuesday 08 May 18 08:19 BST (UK)  »
The recent threads by Terri Jackson on our mutual ancestor James Smith prompted me to revisit his possible ancestry.

James Smith & Ann Charlton's first few children were among the early baptisms at Westoning Baptist Chapel of which Bedford Archives states
"In June 1814 [WE1737-1738] John Smith of Westoning, yeoman, conveyed a barn "lately converted into a chapel by a society of the people called Methodists residing in or near the parish of Westoning" to Thomas Millard of Flitton, yeoman, for 80."

James Smith's parents may well have been John & Elizabeth Smith with Bedford Non-conformist records showing James born 29 April 1785.

Does anyone know more of John Smith of Westoning?

Agreed, that is the one I suspect to be the right John

Can anyone suggest where John WAGHORNE might have been born?
He married Mary BIST on 5 Jan 1784 at Ightham or Shipbourne and they had 7 children baptised at Shipbourne between 1794 and 1808

Sussex / HEATHFIELD baptism Waldron

I have been told that my 5x great grandmother Barabara Heathfield was baptised at Waldron 7 Sep 1783 but have no other details.

Is anyone able to ascertain her parents' names please?

Buckinghamshire / Lost pubs in Burnham
« on: Saturday 31 March 18 15:03 BST (UK)  »
I recently stumbled across a listing of all the pubs in Bucks in 1872. This includes 29 pubs in Burnham (encompassing Cippenham)!
The Pubshistory site provides some clues (as indicated below) as to where some of these were located but can anyone offer more information?

While I can identify many of these from local knowledge and a previous thread on here about the Alma and the Grenville Arms I am at a loss to identify the following

Boot   High Street
Brickmakers'  Arms   Church Street? (two are listed but pubhistory has a Bricklayers Arms in Church Street)
Dropmore Inn   
Jolly Gardener   
New Inn   Dropmore
One Mile House   Bath Road,
Rose And Crown   High Street
Three Horse Shoes   
The Feathers   High Street

In addition two of the pubs are unamed with licensees JH Jarret and Alfred Heald

Dorset Lookup Requests / Re: Henry WHITE & Elizabeth BROWN Preston 1790s

I assume that ELizabeth BROWN is Henry's wife, the age and location are highly suggestive

Thanks for the suggestion, sorting out these WHITEs is tricky when they move parishes
