London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / Help I made a Boo Boo
« on: Saturday 29 June 13 15:32 BST (UK)  »
Hi,

Can anyone help.

I've looked up a record in the past at "st. George" parish, but omited to note where st. George is. (It doesn't say on the image of the record I have).

It's the baptism of Elizabeth Louisa Clement 25 Dec 1817. Father Richard Clement, mother Mary Clement.

Elizabeth was born 19 April 1817.

My guess is it's st. George in the East.

Regards,

Linda    :-[

Hi Jo,

I have been and had a quick look at London Lives. It seems to be a good site.

I think Henry may have died in 1787 as there is a will for a Henry Clement of St. John Berkeley Square, Victualler on the National Archives website.

I'm on a bit of a fishing trip at the moment. My last positively identified ancestor is Richard Clement born 1767. The birth date I got from an old government paper listing pension records for excise men on Google books ( you can get some good leads on there if you're lucky).

It has been difficult to trace Richard as he seemed to have moved about a bit. Although he died in Whitechapel, I think I can place him in the Marylebone area for the early part of his marriage and I have found a possible marriage for him in St George Hanover Square. With a birth of a Richard Clement in exactly the right year in this parish also, it is beginning to look more certain that this is the right family.

Would an occupation in the Excises and that of a licensed victualler go together? or would they be on opposite sides of the fence?  :-\
I have traced Richard's career back to 1799 in the excises when the money ran out for the researcher. He would have been about 32 up to this point. What he did earlier, I don't know.

Still this is all part of the fun.

Maybe I'll take a punt on the will, although the last one I did that with didn't produce anything useful.

Anyway,

Thanks again.

Linda

Wow, thanks Jo.

Were all these children Clement or Clements? As Richard Clement was without the 's'.
I suspect that this was a variable thing, but I have noticed that both variations occur in the indexes for this parish.

The warrant from London lives, do you think this may be a coroners inquest?

Do you know what this is?

Hi,

Dawn was kind enough to look up the birth details of:

Richard Clement bapt 3 Nov 1767 in St George Hanover Square, Westminster for me yesterday.

Could I impose further and ask if someone could look for possible siblings for him for me please?

Parents names are Henry & Elizabeth Clement.

Also are there many Clement families there, or are they limited to a couple.

Many thanks,

Linda  :)

Hi Jess5athome,

If it's from WW2 then the likelyhood is the badge is my Grandfathers. I don't know if he was a sergeant as he died in 1945 when my mum was 6.

Here is the only picture I have for him.
