Norfolk / Re: Photo wanted of the old Blacksmiths forge in Wortwell
« on: Sunday 12 January 14 14:01 GMT (UK)  »

just got hold of an old family photo album which has a lot of post cards in. none of them are marked up as such and it has been around the country - starts in wortwell , starston and redenhall with what i think is postcards of the 1912 floods. also loose in the album is postcards from Halstead in Essex from about 1920's. one of The Bastion Westfield (to be investigated as to where this is) a photo of a large stately home (no idea where it is) , boys school photo around 1918-1922 from where i dont know but it has my grandad on it (he moved around alot) and a post card of a Smith Farrier where its from i don't know. but the details on the sign out the front are as follows:-

Late R Foster
Smith & Farrier

I know the photo album has also been to the chichester area .

Have you had a look on ebay as people are selling all types of old postcards?

If it is the one you are looking for i will gladly copy it and send it to you.

kind regards


World War One / HMS King Edward VII
« on: Sunday 12 January 14 13:02 GMT (UK)  »
Hi to all

I have just come across an old postcard of men loading ammunition on board HMS King Edward VII in an old family photo album.
I am looking for the crew list / records for people who served on board from 1905 to 1916 when she sank.
The surnames i am intrested in is Fairhead or Strotton. I know one of my family Thomas William Strotton died on HMS Bulwark in 1914.
Forces war records do not list HMS King Edward VII.

has anybody got any ideas as to where i need to start looking? Any help or pointer will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

This maybe the missing child of James Edward Fairhead and Eliza Harper from the 1911 census but i am wondering if anyone can look up the baptism and burial to shed more light on it or i may have to get a birth / death cert. The person i am looking at is:- Charles Edward Fairhead Born Q1 1878 in Hoxne District and Died Q3 1880 in Hoxne district. I suspect that he will be found in the Weybread parish or Mendham parish.

I suspect that he maybe the person as his sister Beatrice has a son when she was unmarried and she called him Charles Edward Fairhead (my grandfather).

Also has anybody got an actual marriage date for James Edward fairhead and Eliza Harper married in Hoxne in Q2 1877. again i think this is in either Weybread or Mendham parishes.

many thanks

Hi to all

Thanks for all your efforts

The James Edward Fairhead and Eliza Harper are from the Norfolk / Suffolk boarder area (Jame's father is William Edward Fairhead) they married in Q2 1887.

The other pairing of James and Eliza Fairhead are from the reg. district of Smallburgh (north of Norwich). Mary Ann Fairhead born 1873 is their daughter.
I also believe that the male fairhead that was born and died in 1880 in the district of smallburgh is more than likely the son of James and Eliza of smallburgh due to location. (posted kindly by ChrissieL ).

Still hunting

Hi to all
I need some help tracing one of JAMES EDWARD FAIRHEADS children. From the 1911 census you will find that he and his wife ELIZA HARPER had 4 children 3 alive and 1 died before the 1911 census. I have the following children ARNOLD MAJOR FAIRHEAD born Oct - Dec 1879 in Weybread Suffolk. GEORGE EDWARD FAIRHEAD born 6 April 1882 in Wortwell Suffolk. and BEATRICE LOUISA FAIRHEAD born 13 May 1887 in Wangford Suffolk. The unknown FAIRHEAD does not appear on any census records so I suspect that the unknown fairhead died as a infant or a child.
If anyone has any info on the unknown Fairhead or the birth / baptism of ARNOLD MAJOR FAIRHEAD it would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks for reading this

Norfolk Lookup Requests / Samuel FAIRHEAD
« on: Saturday 29 December 12 15:46 GMT (UK)  »
 I am looking for the marriage between Samuel Fairhead born / baptised in 1729 and Ann Hall. I think Hall is her surname. I believe they where married between 1760 to 1781 in Norfolk. They may have been married in Bedingham, Bungay area.

I believe Ann was born in 1743.
They has a son James Fairhead born 1781 in Bedingham.

Many thanks


Devon / Re: James Albert Cranfield 1831 in Chard

Hi Pels

I think it is Sarah Wootton as James Albert Cranfield lives at no.79 West Street along with his brother Alfred William Cranfield and Sarah lives at 108 West Street as you put.

I also found on the same 1851 census Ruth Jeffery. She lives at no.80 West Street and she married Alfred William Cranfield.

its right about the old saying "the girl next door"

many thanks :)
