Family History Beginners Board / Payne family in Sydney, New South Wales
« on: Tuesday 25 August 20 17:33 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone have a connection to James Henry Payne born 1828 in Kent, England and died in Marrickville, Sydney in 1891? He was a brickmaker from Upton cum Chalvey near Slough in Buckinghamshire and he took his second wife, Elizabeth (Harris) and children to Australia in about 1875. He had two younger brothers, also brickmakers from Chalvey, George and Joseph who may have joined him later. Their mother was Susannah Payne nee Kennett and their father was Joseph Howard. The boys may have had Howard/Payne as their surnames. With the help of Familytreedna I think that one of them may be the father of my illegitimate g. grandfather. Any clues very gratefully received! Thanks, Sue

John Peter Massey my father,  was born in September 1910 in Vancouver or Kelowna. Also his brother 1909 and sister, 1912. Their father Hugh Alexander was an Insurance Agent working in Vancouver.
Is there any way I can find their birth information without having to pay 50 dollars for each certificate?I would be so grateful for any suggestions.

Thanks, Sue Humphries, Canterbury England

« on: Monday 07 November 16 22:00 GMT (UK)  »
Edward Albert Giles born 19 December 1872 in Chalvey, Slough. Mother Charlotte Deverell born 1846. Charlotte was married to Alfred Giles but she had Edward by another man.
Edward (or Albert) was in the Army then the Police in Hampstead but didn't turn up for work in July 1898 and disappeared from all records. 

Charlotte had a previous child when she had been married to Alfred Giles for 2 years. This boy - Henry Charles was also illegitimate.  Can anybody help please?

Essex Lookup Requests / St Andrew, Hornchurch - Marriages 1725
« on: Sunday 07 March 10 16:57 GMT (UK)  »
I wonder if someone could possibly look up the following please:

Marriage of William Massey to Margaret Overton in Hornchurch, Essex 1725.
This info is from the IGI and does not give a date or specific church. I presume it is St Andrews.

I would like to know if the entry states where William Massey is from and names of witnesses, if any.

Thanks so much,

Sue, in Kent
