Worcestershire / Re: Gross Road, Redditch, Worcestershire
« on: Monday 25 June 18 17:04 BST (UK)  »
Next to try would be commercial directories.  But do remember they took 12 to 18 months to be published.

You don't say the search terms you used but I found this London Gazette reference for some one changing their name:

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/40523/page/3761/data.pdf  so you're not cracking up.  I used: "gross road" and Redditch.  The double quotes are important.

If you can't find a directory then try getting to The Hive record office in Worcester and looking at the electoral register.

Failing that try contacting the good people at Redditch Local History Society: http://www.redditchhistorysociety.org.uk/

Cheers

Hi Bobcats,

Do you know what part of Redditch Gross road was in?  There's been an awful lot of new housing going up.

Could the name have been Headless Cross or Crabbs Cross.  Both areas within Redditch.

Worcestershire / Re: Edward Whitney (1867- ) of Redditch

Hi Stephen,

Just to muddy the waters there was an Edward C. WHITNEY registered in Birmingham in the 2nd quarter of 1968, aged 89.  Who would be around to know what was his actual DoB if he had gone to a nursing home?

You'll probably need a death certificate, and/or a Monumental Inscription.

Worcestershire / Re: Tardebigge baptisms please

Hi,

The subscription transcription index for Worcestershire https://www.fhs-online.co.uk/ has a single entry for a William WATTON in Tardebigge between 1790 and 1810 of 1799.

Sorry I don't have a sub, searches are free but redacted.

There's also the church cemetery of St. Nicolas on The Green in the village.

I suppose it depends on the date you are looking at.

Hi, I think that the electoral registers have been moved from Redditch Library to The Hive at Worcester.

Hi,

Just Googled the surname, Pershore and genealogy and found this http://www.armadale.org.uk/wellsgenealogy/apperley/apperley.htm  It's a worldwide researcher portal so you can contact others.

Montgomeryshire / Baptism Abode: Prison
« on: Tuesday 17 October 17 14:51 BST (UK)  »
Hi Folks,

On my 2 x great grandfather John Richard HUMPHREYS' Baptism record in Montgomery on the 11th January 1839 is a curious Abode comment:

Meifod, but now Prisoner in the County Gaol

His parents were Robert (a farmer) and Mary HUMPHREYS.  Please can anyone tell me why he may have been there?  I'm assuming it's the father in trouble.

Regards

Mike
