« on: Sunday 04 March 18 19:59 GMT (UK)  »
Like you, I have come to a stop at

my other GEORGE interest are my great x 4 grandparents
Dorothy George born 1811 -
married Benjamin Thomas in 1831 in Llanwnda
They lived in Trellwellyn.
Dorothy's father possibly called William, but so far I've not found Dorothy anywhere!

Have you made any progress?

It is beginning to make sense now.


Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Will of 1727
« on: Thursday 08 June 17 19:05 BST (UK)  »
I have a will that I am having trouble deciphering. It is not so much a matter of letters or words but the quality and inconsistency of the handwriting.

What I have so far:

In the county of Glous. I imholden being sick in body but of a sound & disposing mind
& understanding do make publish & aver this to be my last will & testament

I give & bequeath to my son John bed bedstead blankets sheets rugs and pillows
bolsters & appurtances there to belonging as my brothers herein after named shall
choose out for him. Item all the rest & residue of my goods chattles & personale
estate I give after any just debts paid to my daughter Mary to hold to ??her exe
adult & asignes. Item In case my son John and my daughter Mary should both happen
to depart this life before they either of them shall or dose attain to this after
age or ages of one & twenty years without issue then I give devise & bequeath the
messuage tenement org in whence I now dwell situate in the burrough of Wickwar
afford in the county of Gloust commonly called or known by the name or sign of
King Georges Head with the outhouses stable garden ???? & appurtances
thereto belonging and also a messuage or tenement thereto adjoining now in the
possession of Elizabeth Bright? Widow with the outhouses garden wordittants &
appurtances thereto also belonging and the ??? & ??? ??? & ????
this of and ab my estate right title & I ? therein & thereto unto my three
brothers Thomas Witts William Witts & John Witts & to my sister Sarah Witts to

kind & loving to his sister whom he rows to age. If he shall live to see his sister
marryed or rous to age to give to her out of the above mentioned messuages the sum
of twenty pounds and lastly I do nominate & appoint my said daughter Mary &
my two aforesaid brothers Thomas & William executrix & executors of this my
last will & testament revoking all wills by me formely made and I desire my
father John Witts & appoint him my trustee to see this my will duely performed
in wittnesse whereof I have hereunto set my hand & seale this one & twentieth
day of May anno dom 1727.

If anyone can fill in the gaps or correct my guesses so far it would be appreciated.

Thanks Megan,

I have other Berridges in Leicestershire.

Can you list some early dates and names?

Hi Megan,

First see the Victorian County Histories

For more details you need to see the plaque, but you will find this quite difficul whre you are. I have a photo somewhere that has escaped my filing system but I wrote the text down and with the help of friends translated most of it. It goes:

Hic sepultus est =  Here was buried

Iohannes Beridge s Theologie Professor Ecclesie Cathedralis B: Marie Lincoln Presentor ATQ HVIVS Ecclesie par annos 30 pastor Eivsdemq patronus QVI Londini Animam deo. Reridit 12 Die MAII ANNO. D.M. 1632 Etstis ( may be AE diphthong latis) suc sixagesimo

John Beridge teacher of theology, Precentor of the cathedral church of the Blessed Mary of Lincoln, and pastor of this church for 30 years, and its patron, who died in London the 12th day of May in the year of our lord 1632, in his 60th year

Coningem sortitus dorotheam filiam Fermandi Fielding Armigere a quam ei nati Suat 3 filie Maria Festino et Grodhilha omnes ante patre defunde et 10 filii Basilius Gulielmus Ferdinandus Georgius Basilius Michael Jacobus Ignathius Samuel Johannes quos omnes (Basulio Seniore et Michaele exceptis) una cu bxore superstites

Married to Dorothy the daughter of ?Ferdinand Fielding esquire by whom
were born 3 daughters, Mary, Festina and Grodhilla [?] all died before
their father and 10 sons, Basil, Wulliam, Ferdinand, George, Basil,
Michael, James, Ignatius, Samuel, John who all (Basil senior and Michael
excepted) together with his wife he left still living.

Spero videre bona tm in terra viucutiu

I hope to see ?you ?well in the land -?-

Hi Megan,

The Beridges go back a very long way near Kibworth. Look at St Wilfred's Church website

There is a plaque in the church low down just to left of the altar which is to Will am Berridge 1565. They are are very well connected family and you trace them back to Kings and Queens.

Of course there are many other Berridges on the IGI that may not be connected to this branch.

Also search the National Archives for Berridges in Leicestershire. Lots of documents.


Technical Help / Re: HD or HD Ready
« on: Tuesday 15 May 12 14:20 BST (UK)  »
mshrmh is correct HD ready needs an external source particularly a HD set top box to receive and display a HD picture. A HD set already has a built in HD tuner so you save on a bit of kit and the wiring. Just pplug in the aerial and go.

The current good televisions have a built in computer that "upscales" ordinary signals to false HD on the set. Some of these are very good and unless you are sitting very close to the set or have very good eyesight it can be hard to tell the difference. My cable installer guy certainly couldn't when he installed my new HD cable package.

As the cost differences are small by the time you add in a HD set top box and HDMI lead go for the full HD

Better to look for the name.

There must be dozens if not hundreds of laundries in Surbiton & Kingston.
