Thank you very much Sue.

At long last I might have something on John Baggott.  Now to find the death reference.

I heard from family that there was a Cheeseley/Cheesley/Cheasley family that were "barge" people.  Do you know if that would be the same trade as watermen?

Again, thank you.  Rosie

Hi Sue

Is there any chance you could do a look up on the name Anthoney for me.

The names I am particularly interested in are George Augustus born 1796 Bankside, Surrey and also William  (his father) born circa 1766, I believe in Middlesex (not 100% where though yet), both are listed as Watermen on documentaion that I have found so far.

I would be very interested if you are able to locate any Anthoneys from Southwark, Bankside area of London as this seems to be where most of my Anthoney's are from and I have drawn a brickwall on this line.

Thanking you in advance.

Just come across your thread and wonder if you have time to look up George (William) Wright born c.1857.

Many thanks
Liz

Hi Liz

Do you know what area he is in. The only one I could find which may be him:

George Wright bound 13/02/1872 at Christchurch to Henry Reseigh completed 10/04/1877

This one could be is son.

George William Wright bound 13/01/1891 at Bromley to George Wright (DIED 1898) completed 12/04/1898

Hope this helps.

Many thanks for that.  George Wright is a mystery until he turns up in Hull as a fisherman in 1884.  He was supposed to have been born in Middlesex around 1857 so it is possible that the first person you found could be him as he would have been 15 in 1872, however, if you think the 2nd one is his son then  it's not the right person as my George didn't die until 1935.

However, I will now have another trawl through Ancestry for Henry Reseigh to see whether I can find a connection.
