Suffolk Lookup Requests / Re: Look up for a QUINCE Marriage Please
« on: Thursday 12 January 12 16:40 GMT (UK)  »

I have searched the Suffolk Marriage Index 1813 - 1837 which is complete for those dates and there is no sign of a marriage for John.  So he either married outside of the county or before 1813 or he did not in fact marry.

Currently the SRO are only selling PR microfiche to 1901 so you may have to wait for sks to look for you when they visit the SRO because I believe you can access later records there :(

Suffolk / Re: William JAMIESON born 1746 in Suffolk
« on: Monday 09 January 12 13:53 GMT (UK)  »
Hi there,

I am seeking information about an ancestor William Jamieson, who according to my research was said to be born in Suffolk in 1746. He died in Sydney in 1802 being a member of the 72nd Regiment, also known as the NSW Rum Corps.

Regards, Adebec

Hi Adebec

The IGI at familysearch is incomplete, but luckily most of Suffolk's parish records are available on microfiche and many RootsChatters have copies. However, there is not a central database so you really would need a parish in which to search. :(

Hi Coreen

Only marriages and not births or burials are online at HALS though there are lots of other useful indexes included on their database.

As the marriage index for this time period is complete, I think that we can disregard the 1752 marriage as Benjamin would have been too young and assume that the 1762 marriage to Mary SALMONS is the right one.

I've unlocked this post because someone has some information that may be useful to you. It would probably be best if it was passed on by Personal Message but you need to make one more post so that you can access the system.

You could just reply to this thread.

Hertfordshire Lookup Requests / Re: Look up request SEABROOKE in Redbourn
« on: Saturday 31 December 11 16:42 GMT (UK)  »
I too am descended from George SEABROOK and Elizabeth HUMPRHEY of Redbourn through their eldest son Michael's daughter Mary Ann.

George and Elizabeth had so many children it seems that their descendants could populate a small town!

Hi Peter

According to Chris Reynolds on his Genealogy in Hertfordshire site who is a very reliable source.

Elstree (or Idlestree) is a village, in Cashio hundred, Barnet Union and county court district, rural deanery of Watford, archdeaconry of St Albans, diocese of Rochester, and North-Western Metropolitan postal district, 5 miles north from Harrow railway station, 5 south-west from Barnet, and 11 from London, through Edgware, situated at the intersection of the road from London to St Albans (the ancient Watling Street) with that from Bushey to Barnet; the later road divides the county of Herts from Middlesex: the four parts cut off by these roads are in four different parishes and two counties; the north-eastern portion, in which is the church, is in Elstree parish and Herts county; the north-western in Aldenham, Herts; the south-western in Little Stanmore, Middlesex, and the south-eastern in Edgware, Middlesex. The church of St Nicholas is a handsome building, with tower and spire and 2 bells, having been rebuilt by private subscription. The living is a rectory, annual value 804, arising from 200 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor, and held by the Rev. Charles John Plumer, M.A., of St John's College, Oxford. There is a National school. The area is 1370 acres, and the population in 1861 was 402.

Thus if Thomas lived in the north eastern portion near the church he was in Herts.

Well done Jan. I couldn't agree more. I have more ancestors waiting for attention on the back burner than I care to mention!

Suffolk Completed Lookup Requests / Re: Burial look up : Hannah BUCKE
« on: Tuesday 13 December 11 11:54 GMT (UK)  »
The Suffolk Burial index does not list any likely Hannahs. There is only one likely John BUCK (not Bigsby BUCK). This index contains all Suffolk entries on the NBI.

John BUCK buried 29 Jun 1843 aged 39 - Lowestoft St Margaret
