Armed Forces / "Firkin" barrel
« on: Thursday 06 December 07 09:46 GMT (UK)  »
Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place but here goes.

A friend bought this item off eBay.

It was described as a Naval Firkin.

It's only around 6 inches across and 4 inches high. The stopper has an anchor on it.

Could anyone help us to identify the inscription please.

Many thanks

Kent / Names in Kent
« on: Monday 09 April 07 12:58 BST (UK)  »
I have just started research into my Kent line of Grigsby.

I have a Jesse Grigsby born Marden. He married a Mary Waterhouse in Maidstone reg district 1843.

They had a daughter Mary Ann ( Ellen on most things  ::) ) who married into my Sheldricks.

Does anyone have a connection with Grigsby in Marden?

Suffolk / Death Cert - Inquest Help Please
« on: Friday 30 March 07 16:41 BST (UK)  »
I've received the death cert today of my Mary Ann Everett (nee FOOTER).

She died in 1926 in Hopton of an accidental fall. It appears there was an inquest to conclude it was accidental.

Can anyone help me with how to find if there is a newspaper story for this.

She died 16/7/1926 aged 81, inquest was held 19th.

Many thanks for any help or advice on this.

Occupation Interests / Ships steward 1840's
« on: Tuesday 14 March 06 16:36 GMT (UK)  »
If anyone can give me any advice I would be very happy!! :)

I have an Edward Sheldrick who on his sons marriage cert was a ships steward.

He appears to have died prior to 1861. No sign of him in 1851 or 1841(as yet)

I have nothing apart from his marriage cert. If I have toe correct person he was born around 1802 and a ships ticket found for me has some voyages in the mid 1840's although I can't decipher what the entries mean, so any help on that would be great.

It says he served 2 years in the Royal Navy but those records aren't online as they are too early.

The only death I found (1858)wasn't him.

So I really would like to get some knowledge on his time at sea,

Any help would be wonderful.

Many thanks

Diane :)

London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / Any ideas please??
« on: Tuesday 30 August 05 12:00 BST (UK)  »
I have an Edward Sheldrick born 1802 Stepney.

Not able to locate him on any census, died 1850's.

1841 nothing as yet. 1851 wife Janet and three sons living with another family in Stepney.

Think I may have his parents in 1841 Edward and Mary in Stepney.

On his marriage cert he is a ships steward ( 1842)

Can anybody give me any ideas how to progress with this.

Thanks for any advice
