Australia / Re: 1873 Migration to SA - BILLIATT
« on: Monday 28 March 22 23:18 BST (UK)  »
He seemed to like attending public meetings and appear in newspapers.

It would appear that John William BILLIATT and Ann Elizabeth (nee KING) were the "Mr. and Mrs. BILLIAT and servant, in the cabin" who arrived in South Australia on the 14 July 1874 aboard the "DARRA" which departed London on the 24th April.
Their two daughters are not mentioned in the shipping news. They would have been aged 10 & 6.

All good. You caused me to double check my results.

My interest descends through Mary, daughter of Thomas CURSON and Agnes HUSSY.

I have accumulated various wills etc, so if I can help, then send me a personal message and we can chat via email.

That memorial of Agnes doesn't include her husband Michaell WENTWORTH. His 1588 will includes "To Agnes my wif my goodes at Bistor church hile and Montlawe, and the wardeship of Marye CURSON her daughter"

Hi Nigel and thankyou.

As it transpired Dame Agnes SAUNDERS was the daughter of John HUSSEY of Shapwick, Dorset.

Her sister was Margaret, the first wife of John MAYNARD (will 1557, buried Stepney)

John MAYNARD's daughter Fraunces first married Walter ROBERTS and second to William BIRDE. They appear in Dame Agnes SAUNDERS 1588 will as "my neece Ffraunces BIRDE . . . . and her husband Mr William BIRDE".

Dame Agnes SAUNDERS mentioned in her 1588 will that if she died in Stepney, then she wished to be buried by her late brother John MAYNARD. Wills of long ago rarely included the words "in-law", like we do today.

Dame Agnes SAUNDERS ended up being memoralised in St Etheldreda's Church, Hatfield, Hertfordshire with her daughter Elizabeth BROCKET. Her memorial confirms that she was the daughter of John HUSSEY.

This is my transcript of the memorial stone ;

It is rather obvious when someone points it out.

Thank you. I just couldn't see it.

I wish to expand "Reg. Mon. Winch. ii, pp. 51114."

It appears as the footnote 139 in A History of the County of Gloucester: Volume 7, ed. N. M. Herbert (Oxford, 1981), pp. 218-227. As transcribed on British History Online http://www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/glos/vol7/pp218-227.

Can anyone help me as I am trying to view that source.

The "Winch" could be Winchcombe.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: 1620 Visitation

Thank you for your thoughts.

In this case, "without date" seems to suit the pedigree submitted.

I appreciate your help.

I am looking at a pedigree in the 1620 Visitation of Cornwall. One line reads ;

Ricus GRENVILE filius Rici GRENVILE sans Dat. =

What does the "sans Dat." mean?

Can anyone help me please.
