Hi Pauline and hanes teulu

Thanks for your replies. There is no address on the will of James Bramham or in newspaper records of his death that I have found. I do not know how to locate rate books for Greenwich or poll books as he may have been eligible to vote.

Regards

Kent / Looking for the house where Maj. Gen. James Bramham died in Greenwich in 1786
« on: Sunday 08 November 20 18:57 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Folks

My 5th great grand father Maj. Gen. James Bramham was the Chief Engineer of the Royal Engineers in the Army when he died at his home in Greenwich on 11 Nov 1786. I don't know how old he was but I believe he was born in Yorkshire about 1720. He was buried on 20 Nov 1786 at St. Alfege's church in Greenwich. He was survived by his daughter Jane, and his brother Cuthbert (of Pontefract) and his nephew also James Bramham (son of his brother William Bramham deceased) who are all mentioned in his will.

Any help to identify where James Bramham lived in Greenwich would be very much appreicated.

Thanks

Richard

Hi

I am looking for greater detail, that may be in the original parish records, than is on the OFHS baptism and marriage indexes which I have on cd. The original records do not appear to be available online.

In particular I am seeking a baptism record for Richard Goody born in Mongwell and baptised in Newnham Murren in 1817. He is my 2nd great grandfather. I believe that Richard had a middle name of William and that his parents were Robert Goodey and Mary Brownjohn who were married in Newnham Murren on 9 Nov 1805. Robert Goody was I believe born and baptised in 1781 in Crowmarsh Gifford. Mary Brownjohn was I believe born and baptised in Kingsclere, Hampshire in 1788.

Does anyone have sight of the original parish records for Newnham Murren and Crowmarsh Gifford that could help me?

Many thanks

Richard

Hi antique one

I had not seen that newspaper advert. So it appears that John Collyer's wife did not manage the pub after he died.

Thanks for your message.

Thanks Mckha and Watson for your suggestions. I've ordered a copy of the book Watson, which I didn't have.

I'm also going to try to find a source online of the rate books for the areas I'm interested in, to try to pin down where my ancestors lived more precisely.

Regards

Hi

I am seeking some advice on people who wrote diaries which have since been published concerning high society and the "well to do" esepcially of the first half of the 1800's in London, Brighton and Ireland (Dublin and Cork in particular). This is to broaden my understanding of the lives of my ancestors who lived in these places that were of independent financial means at the time.

I am particularly interested in the Chelsea, Maida Vale, Paddington and Kilburn areas of London and the home counties surrounding London.

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.

Many thanks

Richard

Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Innkeepers / publicans of Hampshire in 1760s
« on: Thursday 11 June 20 17:23 BST (UK)  »
Hi

Can anyone tell me if there is a record on Innkeepers for the New Alresford area of Hampshire covering the later 1700s.

In 1758 (following the death of her husband Edward King), my 5th Great Aunt Elizabeth King (nee Garrett) married a John Collyer (Innholder which I presume means Innkeeper) in New Alresford. John Collyer died in 1766.

I am wondering if Elizabeth continued to manage an Inn following the death of her husband?

Any help would be gratefully appreicated.

Many thanks

Richard

Angus (Forfarshire) / Re: Seeking help to find Burnett family of Montrose

Hi Colin

As you suggest I have tried surname interests. There was only 1 person with Burnett interest covering the Montrose area. I contacted hi. Unfortuately he had no Robert or Thomas Burnetts in his family.

Thanks anyway.

Hi CoIC

I created two of the trees on Ancestry with information concerning Thomas Burnett (and his wife Ann Farnham). The other two trees are mainly concerned with Ann Farnham's ancestors and dont shed light on who Thomas' parents and siblings were.

Regards
Richard
