Hello Ryan and welcome to Rootschat.  i too am directly descended from walter & grizel and i would be interested to see your family line.  unfortunately i have recently broken an arm and am keying this with one finger.  that means i am 50% slower than usual and am getting a bit frustrated.  i have copies of the newspaper articles and you could try to get them on this site;
www.langholmearchive.org.uk/lookup.php   (SEARCH FOR UNknown Porteous).  SORRY, BEST I CAQN DO, but its a start.

cheers

Thank you for the trouble that you have gone to Wayne; I will check all that info to our records to make sure that we have it all.
I have advised you of our email address by PM.
Thanks,   Bill

Hello Wayne
I have been having computer problems so haven't replied earlier.  Your list sounds very interesting and I am wondering if my wife's relative, CLEMENT BRALLA (or VARELA), appears on it?
Cheers,  Bill

Hi Rosie
His Death Certificate shows:
Reg. District - Cambridge
Sub District - St Andrew the Less
Died at -  154 East Road, St Andrew the Less
Informant lived at - Broad Street, Cambridge
Henry was the registered publican of the Waggon & Horses, 170 East Road, St Andrew the Less from 1830 until his death in 1854.
Can't tell you much more (other than the fact that the booze finally got him!).

Cambridgeshire / Henry KING (1787-1854)

Henry was my 3rd great grandfather and he died on 28 Apr 1854 at St Andrew The Less, Cambridgeshire.  I am endeavouring to locate his grave site and, hopefully, find an inscription on a headstone.  I am wondering if someone has a publication of monumental inscriptions in the area and is prepared to have a look for my grandfather.
Thanking you,  Bill.
