Antrim / John & Samuel Mayne of Ballyboley
« on: Monday 15 October 18 08:31 BST (UK)  »
I am researching the family of Thomas & Martha Mayne of Ballyboley.
I am trying to locate the birth details of a son John Mayne. He is mentioned in his father Thomas Mayne’s Will along with his brother James.  There is a death of a John Mayne in 1886 (age 63) whose brother James was at the death. There is also letters of administration for John which mentions James.  However I have not been able to locate a birth record for John.  Any assistance would be appreciated.
There is also another son, Samuel, born in 1825 (we have the record). Samuel is also listed in the Revision Books in 1887, however his name does not appear in the 1893 revision book. This is the last trace of him.  I haven’t been able to locate a death record or a trace of Samuel.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

I located a death notice for an Eliza McGookin on page 6 of the Belfast Newsletter for 3 Dec. 1947 on the British Newspaper Archive site.  However only half the notice has been scanned.  Would anyone be able to suggest where I might be able to get a complete copy of the notice from? 

Devon / Clark family in 1841: Lookup request
« on: Thursday 07 July 16 10:35 BST (UK)  »
Trying to locate John & Elizabeth Clark on the 1841 census.
On the 1851 Census, John (born abt 1814 Sidmouth, Devon age 37) & Elizabeth (abt 1818 Exeter) Clark are located at Bloomsbury street, Aston near Birmingham. (HO 107/2061/73).  Daughter Elizabeth (11) is listed as born in Exeter.  So are they in Devon?  There may be another daughter Ann born 1835. Any assistance appreciated.  Thanks

I am wondering if these pieces could possibly fit together to support John Brookes Manning and Eunice Ring as the parents of “Eunice Mary Manning”.
Here are the pieces:
Piece 1. There is a record in “The-Register-Book-of-Marriages-Belonging-to-the-Parish-of-St-George-Hanover-Square-in-the-County-of-Middlesex-1824-1837”    London Diocese: Stating that on 10th August 1826, APPEARED PERSONALLY  The Reverend John Brookes Manning, clerk, of the parish of Saint George Hanover Square in the county of Middlesex, bachelor of the age of twenty one years and prayed a licence for the Solemnization of Matrimony in the Parish church of Saint George Hanover Square between him and Eunice Ring of the parish, spinster, of the age of twenty one years.
Piece 2. A Eunice Ring, father Henry Ring, mother Susannah Wood was born 1 Set 1798, christened 29 Nov 1798 at Mt Ephraim, Lady H  Turbridge Wells Kent.  (Source: England & Wales, Non-Conformist and Non-Parochial Registers 1567-1970) Countess of Huntingdon’s Connexion.
Piece 3. There is an article from “The Gazette” Heading:  “THE COURT FOR RELIEF OF INSOLVENT DEBTORS”  At the court-House, in and for the City and country of the city of Bristol, on the 2d day of July 1827 that states:
John Manning (sued by the name of John Brooks Manning) formerly of Ashton-Place, ‘then of No. 15, Carolina-Row, Hotwells, since of dowry-Square, and late of No.2, Clifton-Place, all in the Parish of Clifton, Gloucestershire, Linguist.
Piece 4. Baptism of “Eunice Mary Manning”  on 2 Sept 1827, Saint Mary Magdalene, Bermondsey, London.  Father John Manning, Mother: Eunice   John & Eunice are listed at Great George Street. John is listed as a linguist.
Piece 5. On the 1841 Census, John(33) & Eunice (44) are listed at Richmond Place, Tower Hamlets.  John is listed as a Linguist.  HO 107/ 698
Piece 6. I think John died on 29th August 1850 in Westminister England.
Piece 7. “Eunice Mary Manning”’s marriage record in 1851 has John Manning (deceased) Private Tutor.
Piece 8. There is a record for Eunice Manning marring William Stephen Bungey on 30 Sept 1847.  Eunice’s father is listed as Henry Ring. 
Piece 9. 1851 Census, RG09  1317/100  Eunice Bungey (widow) is listed in Wiltshire.  Her birth year is 1797 and birthplace is Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

I would be interested in people’s thoughts on the possibility of these pieces matching.

Lancashire / Margaret Darwin (Darwen) from Preston
« on: Monday 05 October 15 04:28 BST (UK)  »
Looking for help to locate parents/family of Margaret Ann Darwin (Darwen).  She travelled to Australia.  Headstone says born in Preston, Lancashire 25 Dec 1840.  Death records say parents are Joseph Darwin, Mary Waring.  Immigration to Australia in 1869 on Royal Dane has Margaret Darwen age 26.
I am trying to confirm parents and locate them and Margaret on 1841, 51, 61 census.  Possible lead is a Margaret Darwen age 9 Pauper Inmate at Penwortham on the 1851 census.
Would there be any records for Penwortham that might show details?  Any leads welcome?

England / Wives of Richard Heyward (Hayward)
« on: Saturday 28 December 13 02:36 GMT (UK)  »
I am not sure which county to post this too.

I am chasing the surnames of two wives of Richard Heyward (Hayward/ Haywood).
Richard was born in 1855 in Lower Quinton, Gloucester to Richard and Sarah.
On the 1871 census  RG10/26, Richard (Hayward)is listed with his parents Richard & Sarah at Paddington, Marylebone.
On the 1881 Census RG11/4297, He is listed at Ingleton, Midland station with wife Margaret age 27 (born abt 1854 in Wennington, Lancashire.)  I have a Lancaster Gazette article from 20th Nov, 1881 that says Margaret Heyward wife of Stationmaster dies at RibbleHead.
In 1886, Richard travels to Australia with a wife Annette Jane Heyward.  She dies in 1890 and Richard marries again.
Richard and his father were connected with the railway and moved around.

I am trying to determine the two wives surnames:  Margaret and Annette Jane. 
Any assistance would be appreciated.

I am tracking a Robert Morice (born abt. 1834) who travelled to Tasmania, Australia on the Broomielaw arriving 26th Nov. 1859.  I know that he came from Aberdeen.  I have been told that he could have changed his name from Morrice. Any information or ideas on how to track back further would be appreciated.

« on: Wednesday 27 November 13 07:33 GMT (UK)  »
I am tracking a Janet Anderson (born abt. 1838) who travelled to Tasmania, Australia on the Broomielaw arriving 26th Nov 1859.  I know she is presbyterian, comes from Kilmarnock and possibly had a sister Mary (born abt. 1826) who travelled with her.  Details of parents and life in Scotland would be appreciated or ideas on where to look.  I have details of her life in Tasmania.
