Europe / Re: German Pork Butchers in Britain - 2

Hi LouRoll

Frederick Roll married Dorothea Fisher on 10 March 1844 at St John's Church in Wakefield.  Frederick's father is noted as Henry Roll, Gentleman and Dorothea's father as Charles Fisher, Grocer.  Witnesses were Louis Sehwald? and P Septinstall.  Source - Ancestry
Frederick/Friedrich is included on the german pork butcher database under ID 679 and Dorothea Hoffmann ID 357 with a note that this couple married.  Both entries by Histres. 
There is a citizenship declaration for Francois Roll born 17 November 1820 with a birthplace Saverne in the Ancestry records in the Alsace-Lorraine, Germany, French Citizenship Declarations.  This is dated 22 September 1872.  I cannot see any UK Naturalisations for Frederick Roll.

Hope this may be helpful.

Thanks to you both for your help.  Yes, Georg was Brucker originally but after he married he seemed to be known as Brooker.  Maybe people just thought it sounded like that as some records have him as Brucker and some as Brooker. 

M_ONeill - That Red Cross knowledge comes in useful when you least expect !

World War One / Red Cross WW1 Internee Records
« on: Tuesday 23 June 20 12:22 BST (UK)  »
I have the record for german born Georg Brooker in the Red Cross WW1 internee records as follows

Georg Brooker age 31
Art-Rgt 65 Res
Edinburgh 137 Morrison Street
Döttingen, Württemberg (B)

George was a butcher/sausagemaker in the 1911 census married to an english lady.  He was interned and his last address was in Morrison Street.  I do not know what the second line of the record entry relates to i.e. Art-Rgt 65 Res.  Could anyone help?

Does anyone know if records for the Home Guard in Peckham exist or are available in a local archive office?
Thank you for any help.

Thank you again!  I have both records now.  I had seen a marriage between John Hill and Mary Kirby on trees on Ancestry but wanted to confirm how this came about before accepting the information.  Mary Kirby married cheesemonger Stubbs Bond in 1778 at St James', Westminster.  He died in April 1783 and Mary remarried again to John Hill.  Those treeholders were correct but no sources! 
Thank you for all your help.

Bookbox you are wonderful!  Mary Bond is the one.  Thank you so much :)

Does anyone know if the marriages records for St James the Less in Westminster are available anywhere for the 1780's.  I have been told that John Hill married Mary there but want to confirm her surname.  Any help would be appreciated.
