Wiltshire / The Friary, Salisbury
« on: Monday 26 March 18 21:21 BST (UK)  »
My great aunt and uncle (Dorothy and Les Hatcher) used to live in The Friary in Salisbury (before it was demolished and the flats were built), which I used to visit when I was young.  Does anyone have any photos, or know where I may find some, of The Friary as it used to be, ie the terraced houses which were on the left as you entered the road.

Can anyone please help. My great aunt used to live in The Friary in Salisbury in the old cottages which were demolished and replaced by flats. I have been trying to find any old photos of how it used to be. If anyone can assist I would be extremely grateful.

Sussex / Chickers Lane, Bosham/Westbourne
« on: Wednesday 29 August 12 18:22 BST (UK)  »
Is anyone able to confirm the existence of Chickers Lane, either in Bosham or Westbourne in 1846.
I have a copy birth certificate for an ancestor stating this address in 2 places, but I cannot locate it on any map.  The registration district is Westbourne but I believe the birth to have been in Bosham.
I have also looked under Chicken and Chickens in case this is a misinterpretation, but the writing on the certificate is very clear as "Chickers".


Kent Lookup Requests / Woodnesborough church records - Pay and Mount
« on: Saturday 05 May 12 21:35 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone have access to Woodnesborough parish records please?  I have found reference to a marriage between Thomas Pay and Sarah Mount at Woodnesborough 1811.  In my tree I have Thomas Pay born Woodnesborough 1812 and am hoping these may be his parents.  I cannot find a baptism/christening for Thomas jnr.  If anyone could find any info at all on any of the above for me I would be very grateful.

Could anyone kindly assist with Census lookups in the name of Hayward.
I have 2 sons George (b1839 Cranbrook) and James (b1846 East Ashford) - believe James born in Brabourne.
Mother's name Elizabeth (b1816 Brabourne).  Father's name James (birthdate unknown).
I have Elizabeth (a widow) living with George in 1881 Census, but would appreciate earlier Censuses to establish any other family members.
Any assistance greatly appreciated.


London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Grimshaw Murder in Epping Forest c1928
« on: Monday 19 December 11 16:10 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone know where I might be able to find out any information about a murder which supposedly took place in Epping Forest c1928 (or anytime during the 20s).  The victim's surname was Grimshaw, unsure of his christian name - I only have very sketchy information at present.  There were 4 brothers in total (Ernest, Bertram, Arthur & Randolph), one of whom was the murder victim, another was believed to have been a Metropolitan policeman.
Any ideas at all on how I may be able to trace this info would be appreciated.

Does anyone have any burial records for St Mildred's Church, Canterbury?  Am trying to find out whether the following burials were at St Mildred's or in Canterbury Cemetery.

George Horton died 28.01.1855 (aged 28) (buried 04.02.1855 Canterbury)
(Son) George Jamieson Horton died 24.10.1855 (aged 6 months) (buried 28.10.1855 Canterbury)

I wondered whether they may have been buried in same plot.

Several of his wife's family were buried in St Mildred's (Bennett Andrews and Effield Maria Andrews) hence the reason for wondering if they may have been also - the records for St Mildred's seem to go up to 1855 and presume after that year they are in Canterbury Cemetery?
