Armed Forces / Ernest Robert Southern, did he serve in WW2.
« on: Monday 28 December 20 21:53 GMT (UK)  »
Ernest Robert Southern was born on the 14th Aug 1922 in Durham but lived in the Cheshire area during the war years, he didn't marry until after the war in 1947.
Can anyone tell me what he did or if he served during World war two, ie where he served and any regimental numbers and so on.
Very interested in this ancestor of mine who seems very hard to find information for.

Hi, Hope this is ok, if not i will understand.
Looking for a lookup in the Fold 3 site for a person named only as E Southern, in the Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service Reserve, her rank is SISTER and there may be 3 or more records over the years 1942, 1943 and 1945, could be more.
She may be a relation of mine, i just don't know.
Hoping for a good result which if the case i will spend some dosh and hunt for some more etc.
Thanking you.

Cheshire / Marbury Hall POW camp WW2 Pregnancy ??
« on: Tuesday 17 November 20 03:51 GMT (UK)  »
There was a Prisoner of War camp at Marbury Hall near northwich during the second world war, my question is this, is it possible that a relation of mine became pregnant and the child later sent to north america, DNA has lead me to his being a possibility but with no more proof, ie the missing child would have been a girl born around 1943 and gave birth to a close relation of mine in America in 1962, my relation is searching for his biological mother and is this close now. he has a large amount of german DNA along with my british side and some other DNA from his fathers side, he has found his father since with help.
My female relation who may have been the grandmother of my close relation in america lived in the town of Marston, near Wincham which seems close enough to the POW camp for this to make it interesting.
Your thoughts on this matter would be of great interest and even any ideas of what to look for.

Was a relation of mine in the home guard, he was born in 1918 in the Durham area but could have been any other place during the time of the second world war.
His name was Thomas Alfred Southern.


Durham / The old Pot and Glass Inn , near Cross gates ?
« on: Tuesday 27 October 20 06:55 GMT (UK)  »
On a google search looking for a relation i came across an old photo of the Pot and Glass Inn, its a really bad copy or rather when i try to download a copy its awful, i can just make out a name on a sign above the door.
According to the Durham record it was taken about 1950 or so, from what i can see the building looks derelict.
I would like a copy that i can see better or any other information about the old pub.
My relation i was looking for might have been the last landlord as in 1939 lives elsewhere, his name was Alfred Southern who married May Smith and her mother Frances Hutson (Hudson) lived there for many years, Frances Hutson (Hudson) was married to Thomas Smith and he was the land lord there also many years ago

Thanking you

Cheshire / Was there a divorce for Evelyn Southern and Henry Wood ?
« on: Wednesday 30 September 20 21:11 BST (UK)  »
Hi, a brick wall of mine, Evelyn Southern ( born oct 2nd 1894 ) married in 1917 a man called Henry Wood and they had a son called Ronald Wood born 1919 in Chester and may have had another called  Harold Wood in 1924 in Manchester but other than Ronald it is uncertain as to how many children they had.
Henry marries for the second time in 1930 in Cheshire to a lady called Flora Barber and they have a few children.
My question is, what happened to Evelyn and also her son Ronald ?


The Common Room / LOOK UP please, marriage information.
« on: Wednesday 19 August 20 07:56 BST (UK)  »
Some help please trying to find just the info in the Ontario canada marriages 1826-1938 page on ancestry.
Its for a direct relation named as robert kearnes who married mary jane fulton.
What i do know is that they were married in belfast, northen ireland in 1858 but dont know what mary janes mother may have been.
Just why its recorded in a record in canada is a bit of a mystery.
Perhaps some new information can be found within this record.
Thanking you.

World War One / Herbert Southern , Royal Artillery.
« on: Wednesday 29 July 20 05:41 BST (UK)  »
Hi there
A relation escapes me as to what he did in WW1, Herbert Southern born in 1896 in the Northwich area of Cheshire was in the Royal Artillery, that much is known but not what and were he went during the war, was he gassed or something else, did he find romance during the war or any other story of interest.
Is it possible someone might be able to tell his story for me.
Thanking you.
David in New Zealand.
