Further to my post, Iíve worked it out now  ::)

It was the reference to WhatsApp that threw me.

Technical Help / iPhone favourites problem
« on: Thursday 23 September 21 11:35 BST (UK)  »
I wanted to add a friendís mobile number to my favourites list, which Iíve done before with no problem. This time when I clicked on Add to Favourites the three  options that came up were Messages, Call and Video WhatsApp. My friend doesnít use WhatsApp so I chose Messages and clicked on her mobile number.

When I checked, there was her name with messages alongside it but when I clicked on this instead of ringing her mobile the only option was to send her a text.

The other names on my favourites list have an indication whether a home or mobile number, no mention of messages. Iím assuming this is a change since the last update.

Iíve tried the web but havenít got any answers there so Iím hoping someone on here will know a way round this.

Thank you for that, something else to look into!

Norfolk / Note on bottom of the page re Banns

Searching for a possible relative's marriage, I came across the following:

These Banns were discontinued on account of the Affinity of the parties.

Anyone any ideas on what it means?

Might even be me!

To be honest it looks as though George simply moved to where the work was. He went from an ag lab to stoker at the paper mill, which is where his future wifeís father and brother worked.

The surname is a coincidence I think as his family seem well rooted in Buckinghamshire while mine were all Norfolk born and bred.

Sorry, that should be looking at the 1851 census.

Many thanks for all the information Trish. It is very kind of you to take so much trouble, however at the moment I am only interested in the son George.

He married and had children in Drayton, Norfolk, which is where my Howards are so I had assumed he was part of the family somewhere. I was therefore most surprised to find his birth place on the 1881 as Woburn sic, so that is why I was looking at the 1841. He is still at Wooburn in later census.

The parish relief and split family set me wondering which is why I posted originally, just curiosity.

Iíve only just started looking at George so as yet I know of no connection to my family. I feel there must be though as itís a bit of a coincidence leaving Buckinghamshire and moving to a Norfolk village where there are a lot of Howard families.

Regards

Definitely a possibility.

I have been searching for them on the 1861 but with no luck so far. Presumably deceased by then.

Something else to check but tomorrow now.
