London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / John Oliver - Apprentice ShoeMaker
« on: Sunday 30 September 18 04:24 BST (UK)  »
John Oliver was born around 1795 not sure where as 1841 census he is a shoemaker in Crayford, Kent, however not of this parish.  He died in 1847 in Crayford, Kent.  Wondering if there are any records of apprentice shoemakers that may help me locate him prior to 1830.  He married Sarah Hill in 1830 in Crayford.  I have previously posted in the Kent Forum, however thought maybe the London apprenticeship records might give me something new.

Any guidance much appreciated.

John Oliver married Sarah Hill March 1830 at St Paulinus Crayford.

A look up would be appreciated if there are any other details - parents or approximate age of Sarah.

Not sure if these details were recorded or not but would appreciate a look up or advice.

Many thanks.

Essex Lookup Requests / Huguenot Records
« on: Wednesday 30 May 12 04:34 BST (UK)  »
Hello.  Does anyone have access to the Huguenot records for Thorpe-Le-Soken?  I cannot navigate Nat. A*. :(
Research suggests that my Legender (Legendre) family came from France to Mistley/Manningtree in the 17th century and this may tie in with the Huguenot's. 
I know that Isaac Legender (dob abt 1754) married Mary Jacobs in 1773 in Mistley and they had many children (I have all details of children and the marriage).
I also think (do not have conclusive evidence) that his father was also an Isaac Legender (Legendre) (dob abt 1716 in Mistley).  Finally, perhaps Isaac's father was Jacques Legendre born in France 1680's and it was he who moved to Essex, perhaps with his parents???  Perhaps a Huguenot??

Any assistance much appreciated.

Thank you, Christay

Cambridgeshire Completed Lookups / William Peyton School Master Info **CLOSED**
« on: Thursday 12 April 12 12:09 BST (UK)  »

My ggg grandfather was William Peyton of Witchford, Cambridgeshire dob abt 1811.  My gg grandmother was his youngest child, Julia (dob 1853 in Witchford) with wife Mary (Saberton).  On Julia's birth cert William is listed as a School Master.

Can anyone shed any light on this?  Where and are there any documents about him?  Would like to know more than just dob, census data etc.

I am trying to get as far back in the family tree as possible.  I believe William's parents were William and Susanna (Langford) - but I don't have exact records.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.  In Australia, can't pop into the car and drive to local history/library.

Thanks to you all, :)

« on: Tuesday 28 February 12 10:22 GMT (UK)  »
Hello, wondering if anyone can find the marriage of William Peyton (sometimes spelt Payton) and Mary Saberton, perhaps in Ely?  I think they were both born abt 1811.  I have that the first child was Eliza born abt 1831.  I have census data for 1841, 1851, 1861.  Also the birth cert for my  3x G grandmother Julia Peyton born 4/8/1853 Witchford which states William was a School Master.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.   :)

Durham Lookup Requests / Marriage Look up please - LEGENDER
« on: Thursday 20 October 11 11:28 BST (UK)  »
Hello, I am trying to confirm the marriage of Isaac Legender to Elizabeth Henderson abt 1849 in Durham probably Gateshead.  Any help very much appreciated.

Also they seem to go missing in the 1871 and 1881 census data.  Any ideas?

What I know is that they have a son James 22/10/1851 (my 2x maternal grt grandfather) registered in Gateshead and living in High St.  Isaac's occupation is Iron Founder on the birth cert.

I think 3 other children: Chapman dob abt 1850, Ann dob abt 1854 and Alice dob abt 1857.

Many thanks,

Australia / SA 1915 birth look up please
« on: Thursday 26 May 11 12:20 BST (UK)  »

If possible could someone please look up the following birth?: Ernest Lincoln Taylor born 13 Jan 1915 South Australia.  Have no idea of parents names.  He was my husband's paternal grandfather.  The National Library says this info is available on CD rom, but although I have a National Library Card, I can't access online and obviously I don't live in Canberra or SA.

Any assistance would be fabulous as my father in law and his siblings had no contact with this side of the family.  Many thanks, Christine.
