World War One / Soldier's service numbers
« on: Today at 12:07 »
Is it possible to find out when a soldier joined up (roughly) based on their service number? All I can find for my grandfather is his medal card, which has no dates on at all. The only medals were the Victory and British. By Victory is written: RASC/101.B.144.14645, and by British it just says -do-
His record must have been one of the many lost ones.
He was Heber Eltham (pretty unique!) service number M2 200095 on his medal card. But on a letter from him to my great grandmother from France he quotes the number 20095.1 without the M2 prefix. So I guess he just missed one of the zeroes, but I don't know whether the ".1" after the number is significant.
He was a private in the Army Service Corps

FindMyPast has images of baptisms, marriages and burials from many Hertfordshire parishes. Unfortunately for Leverstock Green they only seem to have images of baptisms and marriages. The burials for LG are only transcriptions from the series "England Deaths & Burials 1538-1991" and there appears to be a gap between 1859 and 1862.

Are you looking for any particular burial?

It would be good if people mentioned they were modifying /updating an earlier post. Otherwise mine which appears later, but was posted before the earlier one was modified becomes totally irrelevant

Looking at the children's birth regs mm name is Appleton
Marriage 30 Nov 1850 at St Mary, Kintbury by Banns
William Barrett labourer bac s/o Thomas Barrett  married Elizabeth Appleton (X) sp d/o George Appleton - shepherd botp
Wit: James Shore; Ann Appleton (X)


Elizabeth Elmer lodger age 26 unmarried charwoman born Kings Lynn
Catherine Elmer daughter age 5                                  born London, Middlesex

Elizabeth Elmer might be a daughter of Arthur Elmer and Jane nee Hunt. Arthur from Norfolk married Jane Hunt in Birmingham in 1828. Some children b Birmingham some in King's Lynn. Family in West Brom in 1841, back in King's Lynn in 1851 without Elizabeth or Jane, although Arthur says he's married not widowed.

Thank you so much for your quick reply. It was not the answer I was looking for. As Bicester is close to Quainton, I had hoped to join the families together. Ah well, back to the drawing board. I have another to chase at Hethe, who may be the parents of my Henry. Once again, thank you so much.

I think the Henry baptised in Hethe s/o Henry and Mary, married Mary Spacey in 1763.
The record on Ancestry shows banns reading in October at Hethe, but the marriage written below is another couple. The bride was from a parish I can't read ( ??). So I suspect the marriage took place in bride's parish. There are another set of baptisms with parents Henry and Mary in Hethe following the marriage

Looks like the Bicester and Chipping Norton Knibbs  have been mentioned here

Several Chipping Norton baptisms, earliest 1736 which fits with Bicester marriage, maybe Henry was from Chipping Norton and only resided in Bicester temporarily. There's  a Deddington baptism in 1710, which might fit with date of marriage. But not related (or not closely at least) to the Quainto Henry.
