This burial doesn't appear on my FHS disc. The GRO index gives Richard's age as 70.

Getting the death certificate would tell you where they died, who registered the death and the cause -- this could give you useful info but might be completely useless. it'll cost you 9.25 either way.

Whitwick/Balsall/Parkington/Packington/Shepshed/Birmingham areas of Leicestershire,

Whitwick, Packington and Shepshed are in Leicestershire. Parkington may be a variant of Packington.

Birmingham is a separate, much larger city in the West Midlands (Leic being in the East Midlands). Balsall is fairly close to Birmingham. Most of Birmingham was in Warwickshire but parts of the greater Birmingham area were also in Staffordshire or Worcestershire.

So if you think there are family connections to Birmingham, it may be worth posting on the Warwickshire board as well.

And (also from wills), that William (d 1762) seems to have had a brother Thomas (also a butcher in Desford), a brother John, a baker in Dunton, and a brother Christopher of Market Bosworth, who was a publican.

Then there was another William who was a butcher and farmer in Desford, who had a brother Richarrd, also a butcher, and whose will was dated 1788;

I don't seem to have much about the next generation in Desford, probably because my lot had left there by then.

I've got lots of jottings about Holylands and they are all rather confusing. but I can see that William H, a butcher of Desford, left his will in 1762 naming his sons Thomas, William, Richard, John and Fulshaw, and his daughters Jane Burgesse and Mary Sharpe. Not sure that that gets us anywhere but I offer it as a potential piece in the jigsaw!

My transcription of Desford records does have a Barbara Holyland bapt 11 Oct 1796, parents Thomas and Sarah, with a subsequent public baptism on 25 December.

I believe this is a different Thomas from the one bapt in Market Bosworth in 1758. The Mkt B Thomas married Eleanor Allin and moved into Leicester town some time after 1797; I've no record of him living in Desford.

My Desford transciption has the marriage of Charles Freeson and Barbara Holland (NB not Holyland) in 1813. This could be a spelling or transcription error of course.

I think it likely that there were 2 Barbaras!

Thank you!

Family History Beginners Board / Search request re Henry Wilde/ fold3
« on: Thursday 02 November 17 22:23 GMT (UK)  »
Ancestry has given me a possible "hint" re my ancestor Henry Wilde, b Curbar, Derbyshire, around 1696; it's something to do with being a Chelsea pensioner, regiment 22d Regt. Affarrell's; pension admission or examination date 9 Oct 1749.

The problem is that the link takes me to a website called "Fold3", which I don't recall having ever heard of before. I tried clicking on the "free trial" but that takes me to my FB log in then tells me that I'm already registered; I have no idea of my password for this site (if indeed I have ever registered) and I can't get past that point! It doesn't seem to offer a "forgotten password" link.

So can anyone either suggest how I can view this link (without having to pay!) or access it to tell me what it says?

many thanks in advance  :)

Can you be sure that he wasn't a widower when he married Jane? He would have been older than usual for a first marriage.

He is with his Wesson grandparents in 1861 in Nottingham.


this can't be the Alonzo that the OP wants to check, as he was born in 1868
