Title: Surname Interests - Hertford / Hertford Heath
Post by: dane-enders on Wednesday 31 January 07 00:18 GMT (UK)
Hi,

I would like to get any information with regards to the following surnames from the Hertford / Hertford Heath area;

(My fathers side - Reginald Brian PORTER)

PORTER (Hertford Heath)
COX (Hertford Heath)
ANDERTON (Hertford Heath)
MEDCALF (Hertford)
JARMAN (REDBOURNE / ST ALBANS)


My mothers side ( Hazel Marion PORTER nee GOODSON/TUCK)

TUCK (EATON)

My immediate family emigrated to Brisbane, Australia in 1973.

I currently have a wealth of information regarding the MEDCALF name if anyone is interested.

Cheers
Laurie Porter

I know that fellow Rootschatter `Lady Di` has an interest in the Medcalf family so it might be worth sending her a PM if you havnt been in contact with her already!!

PS I was born in Hertford Heath and still live nearby if you need any local information. Happy to help!

Regards, Linda.

Someone mention my name  ;D

Hi Linda and Laurie,

Thanks to noticing Laurie's post Linda. Laurie and I were in contact about 12 months ago but I haven't heard from him in a while - some people think that work comes before Family history  ::) ;D


Laurie - nice to see you online again (and still searching for the Medcalf family) I'm still at a very solid brickwall in the late 1700 with my Medcalf's and haven't moved in years - so all the best of luck in the world.

Give me a call if I can help in any way

Di

Have you checked and entered your names in the Surnames Interests Table?

The link is via "Your Surname Interests" at the foot of every page

Hi Andrew

Welcome to Rootschat

Have you followed your father's family tree back thru the years in Herts or are you looking for some assistance with that?

I have considerable information about various Medcalf families who were resident in various parts of Herts back to the 1700's at least. If you'd like any help please provide further details about previous generations of your Medcalf family (excluding living people of course).

Good luck and happy hunting

I have a very brief record of your grandfather, Cecil Percy who, I believe, died in 26 Aug 1992.

He was the son of Percy G H MEDCALF and Bessie RICHOLD of Hertford.

You will find quite a few Medcalf family trees on the web that have documented the "Driver Medcalf" family of Ware & Hertford dating back to the late 1700's. Percy is one of the numerous descendants.

Happy to provide further details if required but you may wish to follow your own family line back thru the generations.

Hello,
         The Porter, Cox, Anderton, is a mix of early deaths, remarriages, further information can be gleaned from the headstones in the Heath church yard.   As aside my wife is a Heath Anderton who married a Medcalf.    Small world.
