World War Two / Re: Royal Artillery

Thank you Nanny Jan,

I was wondering if there was a way of discovering what section of the RA he would have been in just by the number, but looking around on the internet I don't think that is possible.

World War Two / Royal Artillery
« on: Friday 14 August 15 14:38 BST (UK)  »

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to find out the Regiment or part of the Royal Artillery someone served in if you have their soldier number?

I found this out from the RA records on Ancestry.

Arnold George Revell Soldier number: 1708145

I know he was in Italy. I think he was on the AKAK guns.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks


Shropshire Lookup Requests / Re: Marriage in Stanton Lacy Please

Just a quick update.

I noticed that they have put lots of Shropshire records onto Find My Past. I have taken out a months subscription and have now found another possible marriage.

The one mentioned previously in 1827 to Mary Hughes. Both first time married. .... and the second

in Stanton Lacy in 1831 to Mary Watkins. Both widows.

So how do I choose which one if either?  ???

Edward was born Stanton Lacy. The 2nd marriage details state that they were both from Stanton Lacy.

The Children seen to have been born nearer Ludlow though.

Any Ideas?

Hi Trish & Garstonite,

If you start looking at children it all starts to get rather complicated.

My direct ancestor was Richard Humphreys. He was born in Ludford in 1835. I have his baptism record confirmed and his parents were living at Saltmore. Now after extensive research I believe the Ludford baptism to be his even though it gives the father's name as Richard. I think this may have been a clerical error.

I too thought that Elizabeth (1832) could be the one in Richard's Castle as it's 1.2 miles from Ludford. I have not been able to find Ellen's baptism.

In 1841 they are in Cold Weston. In 1851 Edward is still in Cold Weston living next door but one to Richard (his son's) future family (the Medlicotts).

Unfortunately, this still doesn't get me any closer to finding Edward and Mary's marriage.  :'(

There is a possible marriage in Ludlow in 1827 to a Mary Hughes, but how can I find out if this is the right one?

Hi Trish,

Edward was born around 1801 in Stanton Lacy according to the 1861 census return.
They lived in Cold Weston according to the 1841 & 1851 census'. Unfortunately I don't know where Mary was from, as in the 1851 census return it just gives their place of birth as Salop, and by 1861 Edward was a widow. The 1851 shows Mary as being 7 years older than Edward.

All 3 of their children were born before General registration, so unable to make use of any birth certificates.  :(

Thanks for your time,

I'm looking for a marriage that happened around 1830 - 1832 probably in Stanton Lacy.

The groom is Edward Humphries (Humphreys etc.) and the bride was Mary.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Ciderdrinker,

Thanks for your help.

I didn't know the marriage was listed under Clandestine marriages.

I suppose although she said she was of St Margaret Lothbury, that doesn't necessarliy mean that she was born or baptised there, just that she happened to be living there at the time of their marriage.

As you say, if she was trying to hide something, it may have just been the first thing off the top of her head!

...... Oh why do we do this.   :-\


London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Looking for the baptism of Elizabeth Outhwaite
« on: Monday 09 September 13 14:36 BST (UK)  »

Can anybody help me find the baptism of Elizabeth Outhwaite?

She married in 1750 to a Henry Clements in St Georges Chapel Mayfair. The record says that she was of the parish of St Margaret Lothbury, which is in the city's square mile.

I'm not having much luck in finding her. The site that I found her marriage on, has her name transcribed as 'Cuthwaite', but the image says Outhwaite.

From the IGI Outhwaite seems to be a northern name.

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks Susan & Sharon.
