Shortridge
« on: Saturday 24 July 10 12:47 BST (UK) »
I came across the following on this website while researching the Shortridges (related to Jane Shortridge who married a Moseley):

"The family of Shortridge is a lowland Scottish one, of which the branch under notice migrated southward and eventually crossed the border to settle amid the fells of Cumberland. "

What does the under notice part mean? and why would they have been under notice?
Wiltshire: Matthews, Cresswell, Gregory
Staffordshire: Dean

Hi Sikes,
I rather think it would be in relation to the Clearences. The landowners cleared crofters off their lands so they could graze sheep. The crofters were put under notice to quit the land. Many migrated to Canada, US and Australia.

Yep. I have a side shoot, long time back, came from Galashiels. Not exactly highlands. No actual proof that they were part of the clearences, but they moved to Edinburgh in the late 1700's  then migrated to Australia in the next generation, mid 1800's.

Hello

I'm new to Rootschat and am gradually searching some of my names.  Found this old post. Apologies if you have since found this answer...

The branch under notice means the branch of the family tree being studied.

It comes from:

Transactions of the Cumberland & Westmorland Antiquarian & Archaeological Society (Founded 1866) Volume XXXIX - New Series. Editor W.T. McIntire, B.A., F.S.A. printed 1939.....

Page 35. Art. V. - The Shortridges. The records of a Cumberland family. By M Aird Jolly

"The family of Shortridge is a lowland one Scottish one, of which the branch under notice migrated southward and eventually crossed the border to settle amid the fells of Cumberland" is the introductory first paragraph.

My Grandmother was a Shortridge. Her brother was Travis Shortridge who was the pilot of the Southern Cloud passenger airplane which disappeared in Australia in the 1930s and wasn't found until the 1950s. Our lines descend from William Shortrigg and Betty Routledge who are the head of the branch discussed in the above article.

Hope this helps.

 
Stiles/Styles - Essex, Cambs, Herts, Beds, Middx
Caldecoat & variants - Cambs (Foxton/Meldreth areas)
Chancellor - Berkshire
Mallam - Wiltshire, Berkshire
Shortridge - Cumberland and Scotland
McKew - East London (Mile End, Bethnal Grn, Etc)
Edge - Buckinghamshire
Wyatt, William - supposedly born Greenwich 2 April 1861
Seymour, Seamer, Seaman, East Sussex
