Nottinghamshire / Re: Armstrong C? - shell factory circa 1914

There was the Armstrong Whitworth company in the Tynside area making munitions at this time. They merged with Vickers around 1927. However, it's a long way from West Bridgford.  :-\

This may be the source of your information -

"BALLARD - on the 8th inst., at Gorleston, Suffolk, aged 85, Mary, relict of the late James Ballard, Esq., who with his son, and the greater part of the crew, were drowned in the month of October, 1822, by the sinking of the "Ranger" Revenue Cutter, off Hasbro' - a tremendous gale blowing at the time."

I can't help with a burial, however this article about the destruction of the Ranger states that the first mate was "Mr Bellard" (also called "Mr Ballard" later in the article). One of the survivors (there were 8 in all who were not actually on the boat when it broke apart) was Joseph BALLARD.

Norfolk Chronicle, Saturday, October 19, 1822, Vol. LIII, Issue 2744, p.3

The article is quite long so I won't transcribe it, but I could send you a copy if you don't have access.

This map (1876) shows Tranmere Vale just south of the Birkenhead brewery

(Move the map a bit to the right - to help find it, Tranmere Vale is also near Tranmere Park and Clifton Park)

There is also a lovely item about the funeral of Henry JOSLIN of Upminster in 1833 if you're interested.  ;)

Records suggest that Isabella was born in Canada.

Family History Beginners Board / Re: Eric Guy Hampden GREEN

Thanks Maddys52, did not find those 2 can you send me copy of each please, just trying to fill in the gaps of his life, must have had problems in India?

No worries, I'll pm you as I think the attachments are a bit big for here.

Whilst I have no idea what happened to Eric in particular, I often think it must be very difficult for those born into high achieving and well known families as his was. Living up to expectations must put a lot of pressure on individuals, especially if they don't necessarily wish to follow the path laid out for them by family and tradition.

Do you have his army records? I see mentions of his various promotions in newspapers, and of his retirement:

"Capt E G H Green retires on account of ill-health; July 9, 1928"
The Daily Telegraph, Saturday, July 14, 1928

"The following pupils of Cheltenham College have been successful in the several entrance examinations named:- ...
Indian Army Cadetships, Wellington ... E G H Green"
