Lancashire Lookup Requests / Re: Accrington St. Ann's baptism please
« on: Wednesday 26 November 08 10:56 GMT (UK)  »
Hello Roland,

Thanks for your message. This certainly sounds like a connection if your grandfather was from Accrington. My husband's grandfather was Joseph Kenyon who was one of Roland's elder brothers (born 1893). (Roland was born 22 October 1898 and baptised on 3 November 1898.)

The only thing that puzzles me is that the marriage entry in Q4 1918 definitely gives Elizabeth's name as Smith (which obviously fits) or Snowden rather than Parish. Could she have been married to someone before Rev Smith? I can't find that marriage.

The birth date of Elizabeth sounds right as my mum-in-law remembers her being "a lot older than Roland". Do you know where she was born?

I don't know if you know Roland's parents, but they were Edwin Kenyon and Ruth Bimpson Shuttleworth. We have quite a lot of information on this family tree. (It's on Genes Reunited.) Let me know if you want any information!

Thanks Carole.

It's looking like it was fairly bogus information or else I completely misread the date, which is why I was hoping that someone had access to the baptism and could see what the date might be...

Thanks anyway.

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Accrington St. Ann's baptism please

If anybody has access to baptism records for St. Anns (RC) in Accrington, please can they look up the baptism on 3/11/1898 of Roland Kenyon?

I viewed this years ago at the county records office and there was a note written in the margin about Roland's subsequent marriage. It looked like he married Elizabeth Joanna Burowden (?) on 18/2/1930 at St. something in Sheffield - where the something could have been Weld/Vincent or, with hindsight, possibly Wilfred.

A helpful person in the West Yorkshire forum has spotted that there is an entry on FreeBMD in Q4 1918 in Sheffield for the marriage of Roland Kenyon and Elizabeth Smith or Snowden. This seems very promising, so if anyone can see the scribble in the margin, please can they tell me whether this is right??

Thanks very much

Thanks again, that sounds promising. I've obviously been taking that scribble in the margin too literally!

I will put a request in the Lancashire forum to see if I can get a better view of the info and to check whether the name could be Snowden.

Thanks again  :)

Wow, that was quick - thanks!

Roland was born on 22 October 1898, so I suppose I could have mis-read 1920. It's slightly odd that he was married in Sheffield at all as he was born in Accrington and I'm not aware of any of the family in Yorkshire.

I'm afraid I haven't got access to the original baptism record that I got this from (St. Anne's) and I wrote it down a long time ago. It might be better if I ask for a look-up on his baptism first, I suppose, in case the image available now is of a better quality.....

Thanks for trying anyway!

I'm trying to track down the marriage of Roland (or Rowland) Kenyon to Elizabeth Joanna Burowden(?) in 1930 on 18th February. The only details I have are from a small scribble in the margin of Roland's baptism, so it's really difficult to read, I'm afraid.

It looks like either St. Weld or Vincent or maybe Wilfred. The last one may be the best place to start as I have at least confirmed that it exists and is the correct denomination (RC).

Elizabeth's surname is also difficult to read, so "Burowden" is the best guess at the moment!

Thanks very much,

Thanks Janis!

I've started the registration process - that was a new website for me and I thought I'd found most of the useful ones!

Thanks again,

Durham / Re: Red Robin Rogerson

... sorry... that wasn't quite accurate!

He was apparently beaten to death with his own crutch not his wooden leg! (although it appears he only had one leg so I was close!)

Durham / Red Robin Rogerson
« on: Wednesday 16 January 08 19:43 GMT (UK)  »

Does anybody have any information about Robin Rogerson (Red Robin) apart from what can be found on the Gateshead History and Tomorrow's History websites?

He was apparently the landlord of the Coach & Horses in Wrekenton and a colourful character by all accounts (especially with the red wig!) but I can't find out when this was ... or when he allegedly met his death by being beaten with his own wooden leg!!

I'm particularly interested because Rogerson is a family name and includes at least one Inn Keeper plus my late father-in-law reckoned he was an ancestor.

Any information would be great.
