Hi  Tamara P,

A very warm welcome to Rootschat.

I do have many "Belcher's" in my tree as my mother was one the d/o Charles born 1889 in Hagbourne, Berks.
To enable me to look further, could you please let me have more details of Frederick, Thomas etc.
When/where born etc.
Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Hi Tam,

As some of these people are are or may  still be alive, I think you will have to be careful as Rootschat has a policy of not allowing searches for living persons.

It can be done using the private messaging system but you have to have made at least 3 messages first. By replying to this posting I see you will have made 3 which allows the PM (private messaging) to work.

There are a huge  lot of "Belcher's"  around and as you are talking about recent times it may be neccessary to purchase birth &/or marriage certificates. Mainly because the details are not freely available on-line to view.
However, if you let me know more, I'll see what can be found.

There are many R/chatters around and i have found them to be very helpful in my searches.

Hi Tam,

My PM has gone to another Rootschatter named "Trees"
Sorry if you thought it was going to you.

Whilst your on, you were going to let me know about Frederick. Because they may be living I can't reveal too many details. If you wish to send me a PM please do by clicking on my name "ribbo39" which should open up a window and from there you can send a PM.

Hi good to see the old thread wake up
Now this is my present take on the situation its full of  folk not waiting for the vicar's blessing  :o which complicates the situation
Starting with Caroline FROUD (1809) she had Esther FROUD in 1834
Caroline then married James Belcher 4 Jun 1835
After that Esther was known as Belcher until she married John LEE in 1858 as Esther FROUD
but Esther had a son Walter in 1855 before she married
WALTER is registered as Walter FROUD no mother's surname on the GRO index
On the 1851 census he is Walter F (Froud?)Belcher living with his Grandparents as their son
1961 Walter BELCHER is with his uncle Henry Belcher  (Henry was a son of James Belcher and Caroline Froud)
Walter married as BELCHER and gave his father as James Belcher not surprising as his Grandfather James had bought him up

Now as it happens there were two Walter Belchers in the area both born in 1856 one in Wantage District mother maiden name East and one in Abingdon district mother maiden name Sandbrook
