Do we think this is the same Phoebe or a different one? 

Don't suppose we have her father from the marriage to Sylvanus to compare.

There's a Benjamin WELLS and family on the 1861 enumerated on the line above Sylv* and Lucy.


EDIT: Sorry - I meant Sylvanus and Phoebe. ::)

Buckinghamshire Completed Look ups / Re: New Road Prison - William Roberts Stokes

Sorry-kind of a poor attempt on my part!

April 4, 1891 - Buckingham Express   FMPast Newspapers
William Stokes, labourer, Buckingham, was charged with stealing from the taproom of the Royal Oak inn, on the night of March 28th a pair of shoes, value 3s. 10d., the property of Joeeph North, hay-tyer, Buckingham.----

It seems the police tracked him down (with the help of his brother of Mitre Street) at the home of Robert Brooks of Bone-hill. William had the boots but claimed,"I know nothing about them;they told me they were mine".

At the court hearing William's employer (Mr H G King) said he'd always found him honest but after a pint or two or beer he was quite dazed and did not seem in his right mind.

Committed to Oxford for one month's hard labour and but for his previous good character the sentence would have been severer.

Hi Lizzie,

 I think you may be correct about the Charles BLACKBURN (stoker).

  The UK, Royal Navy Registers of Seamen's Services, 1848-1939 on Ancestry:
Lists his birth as 18 June 1858 Crigleston York.
(isn't Crigglestone where the family were living in 1881?).

The 1881 census seems to have him in 2 census records-both in Portsea. One is for a stoker-NOT on board the HMS Asia-born Crigleston and the other is the boarder b. Wakefield.

I guess the birth/marriage certs are out of the question?


Armed Forces / Re: What infringement is this?

In the RAF we were issued with 'housewives' in 1952!

A 'housewife' was a small cloth wrapper containing needles, thread, a thimble etc.


Love this thread!

 ;D ;D

I think the address for Charles is 50 Grove Street Southampton.

Look for a John PIKE with wife Caroline in Southampton on the various census.

That 1901 looks awfully good to me,Jen!

Also-the other servant-Elizabeth M Brown just might now be the wife of Walter BENNETT on the 1911 census where Elatch is described as "aunt".

I think the other challenge is working full time - I wish I could swap to this being my full time job!
I will keep going but Iím going to need to start a file or scrap book!

 :) :) :)

Hi Mel,

Welcome home!

Kind regards,
Maureen (nee SMITH)
