Worcestershire / Re: Thomas Cooper & Elizabeth Wright

Hi, is a pay to view site which has the Worcestershire Baptism Index on it.  Transcriptions only - no images.  Open access to the search results however gives 8 names of children baptised and 3 names of those buried.

There are images of Bishop's Transcripts on Ancestry.  A quick check indicates that there was more than one COOPER family, so take care.

Thanks Andy,

I thought it would be something like that.  Just didn't expect he would have been on such a good wage.

Hi Folks,
I've just discovered that my grandfather (a joiner & builder) was renting a Furnished Bedroom from his father in 1910.  He was paying 12s 6d a week, and would have been aged about 23.

The Resource is the Lodgers List for Parliamentary and Parochial Electors.

Under what rules would he have been given the vote.


Worcestershire / Re: birth of andrew evans worcestershire

Hi Willowbeth,

According to the county baptism index ( a pay to view site but with a free search there are only two Andrews within a period of 15 years either side of 1779 in the whole of Worcestershire

  • Tenbury Wells in 1788
  • Rock St. Peter & St. Paul in 1794

FamilySearch also finds the above two.  Bur FreeREG finds neither - probably through lack of data.

Norfolk Lookup Requests / 1940s POWELL deaths in Norwich
« on: Monday 23 May 22 16:30 BST (UK)  »

In 1939 Anthony Powell and his wife Annie (or Anne) nee THOMAS were living in Chapel Alley, Queens Road, Norwich.  Anthony died in the summer of 1940 (aged 80) and Annie in the second quarter of 1944 (aged 85).  They were both in the circus as Equestrians, often working internationally and possibly with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show.  I'm currently not aware they had any family in Norwich, but work in progress.

I don't know Norwich at all.  Where, please, is the most likely place they would have been buried?  Also, did the local newspapers carry any announcements?

Described as "La Belle Duchess" there are 4 photographs here

The first one could now be Annie whilst "Belle 2-4" is probably her daughter.

Kind regards


If you need to know about Walter's life try searching for "The Stage" and "The Era".  They both have on-line archives  through the British Newspaper Archive.  Try also Local newspapers for adverts and reviews.

Just checked FindMyPast has access to The Stage.
