Pembrokeshire / Information on St Florence please
« on: Friday 18 July 08 16:08 BST (UK)  »

I am going to be visiting Pembroke in August for 4 days and I would love to know a little bit about the village of St Florence,   my ancestor lived there from 1861 - 1901  and on the census it states that they lived at St Florence Village, Mill House and the Sun Inn,  in 1851 he also worked at Poppy Bush farm.

What I would like to know if possible is,  where are these places and do they still exist today ? and is the Parish Church open every day for visitors or must we phone ahead and book an appointment.

Any help on the above will be brilliant.

Thank you for your help.

Dorset Lookup Requests / Arthur William Bridle 1844 Wimborne
« on: Thursday 05 June 08 19:43 BST (UK)  »

I may have an ancestor that was registered in Wimborne in 1844 to parents Robert and Caroline nee Barfoot,  I managed to find births, marriages and deaths registrations on the Shillingstone website for the rest of his family,  which has been brilliant  but unlucky for me,  I can not find Arthur's  as he was registered in Wimborne.

Would anyone who has the Wimborne Parish records would you  mind doing me a look up please on this person,  I would be so grateful.

Thank you for any help given.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Blea Moor Tunnel, Parish of Chapel le Dale
« on: Friday 16 May 08 14:00 BST (UK)  »

I've just made out the name of the place where both my ancestors were living at the time of their marriage in 1873, Chapel le Dale,   Blea Moor Tunnel,  I've also just seen a photo of the tunnel,  but can anyone tell me what houses there would have been for the Miners & Railway workers and are they still their today,  another query is,  they would have to have paid rent so would there have been any documentaion that is still available today for us to search.

Thank you in advance.

Rutland Lookup Requests / Baptisim Robert Maden, Morcott, Rutland
« on: Friday 16 May 08 13:41 BST (UK)  »

I have a birth certificate of my ancestor  Robert William Maden,  he was born 12 May 1878 Morcott, Rutland in the sub district of Barrowden, Uppingham,  his parents names were Arthur Maden and Elizabeth Ellison.  ( Arthur was a Railway Labourer )

I have had a look on the IGI site only to not have found it.  I am not sure if Maden,  is their correct surname so I am hoping that there is a Bap date for my ancestor and a surname that might be the same or different.

I will be very grateful for any help.

Thank you

Leicestershire / My ancestors living in Woodsville, Blackfordby
« on: Friday 16 May 08 10:59 BST (UK)  »
Hello Everyone,

I'm after a bit of knowledge on the above area,  my ancestor Caroline Midden ( surname maybe wrong as siblings have different variations )  was born there in 18 Feb 1881,  her mothers name was Elizabeth Ellison and the father was called Arthur, he was a Railway Labourer,  not knowing the area personally  could anyone tell me a bit about the place and if there was a railway line near by that was being built at that time,  would there be any records that are kept that I may search for my ancestor,  just to confirm the spelling of his name.

Any help given will be brilliant.

Thank you

Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / 1873 Marriage Chapel le Dale, Settle
« on: Thursday 15 May 08 18:43 BST (UK)  »

I have the marriage certificate of Arthur Needham and Elizabeth Ellison and they were married on the 30th Nov 1874 in the Parish Church, Chapel le Dale,  Arthur was of full age and Elizabeth 18,  I think his fathers name was George but I'm not 100% sure because of the writing and Elizabeth's father was called Richard both were labourers and Arthur was a Miner.

I am a bit concerned about Arthurs fathers name and  surname,  because if I have the right  couple Arthur & Elizabeth,  by the 1881 & 1891 census and of that on their children's birth certificate goes by the surnames of,  Maden, Meyden, Midden and Maiden.

Would anybody who have access to these registers  could possible check their names for me please.  I am having great difficulty finding these people before this date,  I have checked the census but I am failing.

Any help would very much be appreciated,  anything at all.

Thank you


I am trying to find a marriage between  John Davies ( Blacksmith ) and Jane surname unknown,  the marriage would have taken place about 1830,  this is when their first child Emma was born  I know they lived in Fitz, Shropshire from 1841-1971 and the children were all born and registered in Atcham.

I will be very grateful for any help given in finding this marriage.

Thank you so much.

Merionethshire / Information on Glan-y-Gors, Llandanwg
« on: Tuesday 06 May 08 14:55 BST (UK)  »

I have ancestors that lived in Glan-y-Gors Llandanwg from 1841 - 1871,   my ancestors name was Humphrey Humphreys and was married to a Jannett Edwards Humphrey later went by the surname of Williams,  I have the census for this time period and I was wondering if anybody lived locally would you happen to know anything about the history of the place,  I know at this moment it is a Guest house and I have spoken quickly to the Lady that lives there.

I've tried looking for information but nothing has come up.

I will be very grateful for any insight on this place.

Thank you very much.


If it is possible can someone please do me a look up for my ancestor that died 5 March 1893, his name was Arthur Maiden and was age 41,  he was living at the time at Caerau Huts, Maesteg and was working I presume at the local Coal  Pit Caerau.  He died of Pneumonia.

What I would like if I am not asking too much trouble is,  are there any names mentioned for example family members.

I am trying to determing if this is my correct ancestor.

Thank you so much for what ever help anyone can give me.
