Worcestershire / Re: 1927 census of Blockley Worcestershire
« on: Thursday 25 January 18 23:36 GMT (UK)  »
Thankyou PaulineJ and Greli. I of course meant Rev Eyre's 1827 Census of Blockley, which I have now found online. I found two Taplin families living in Blockley and Paxford. My x3 ggrandma was Hannah Taplin born 1800 in Paxford. These most likely were relatives. She had married Charles Rose and moved to Mickleton by 1827. Their son, Robert Rose, was born in 1827, and was buried the same year at Weston Subedge. This is another piece of the family history jigsaw.

Is there an online version of the Rev. Soden's Blockley Census of 1827? Looking for Canning, Purser, Taplin and Rose.

Thanks ShaunJ - I'll definitely pursue this. I have a few details, see below, but not the cause of his death or any other details.

I know his ship, the John and Robert arrived at Tobago on 17 March 1825, referring to the Master as Scott (Lloyds list).  Lloyds list for July 15 1825 reports the John and Robert returned to Bristol on 13 July 1825, referring to the Master as 'late Scott'.

'Records of Bristol Ships 1800 - 1830', by Grahame Farr, indicates that George Mason was appointed Master of the John and Robert at Tobago on 10 May 1825.

Thomas Scott's burial record was dated 28 April 1825.

Many thanks and Merry Christmas.

Family History Beginners Board / UK Death Record for Tobago 1825
« on: Friday 22 December 17 03:51 GMT (UK)  »
Hi

My GGG Grandfather died in Tobago in 1825. I discovered this by a lucky chance as I searched for his son's name at the National Archive and discovered that this boy applied to attend Greenwich Hospital School. I purchased the record and the application gave details of his father's maritime career.

I followed up with an enquiry to a family history researcher who photographed the burial record in Tobago. He was 32. From this information I was able to pinpoint his likely baptism and parents.

Does anyone know if there would be an official record of my GGG Grandfather's death, as a British Citizen who had died abroad? He was a Master Mariner working between Bristol and latterly Tobago. I'm keen to find out more about the circumstances of his death (probably fever) and what happened to his family back in Bristol. I know they returned to North Shields.

Thanks in anticipation.
