I would love to be able to show my lovely future daughter in law, her family in the above, Italy.

Her grandmother was Maria TARDELLI born 19th Nov 1924 in Ghivizzano, Lucca, Toscana, Italy. That is all the info we have.

If there is anyone who can help find more about her family it would be marvellous.

Thank you.

Hampshire & IOW Lookup Requests / Mary Whitear of Preston Candover.

Sorry people its me again.  ???  ???

I am trying to find the birth record of my Gt Grandmother Mary Whitear. She was Christened on the 2nd Feb 1854 at Preston Candover her parents were William and Ann Whitear MMN Patience.

I have tried every spelling that I can think of. Either the birth was never registered or I am doing something wrong.

I don't need anything else about her, I have all the other info. It is just her birth registration that I am stuck on.

Can anyone help please.

Hampshire & IOW Lookup Requests / Marcy PATIENCE b1835 in Brown Candover
« on: Friday 07 May 21 16:11 BST (UK)  »
Hi everyone,

I need some help with Marcy Patience born 1835 in Brown Candover.

The only reference that I can find to her is in the 1841 census when she is living with her parents James and Johanna Patience and Marcy is aged 6 years in Brown Candovcer.

I cannot find a birth record, Baptism, Marriage or death for her.

It is possible that her name was Mary or similar. I have searched through the whole of Brown Candover in the 1851 census and there is no trace of her.

Any help gratefully received.


I have now found  a birth record of a Maria Patience, parents Jacobi Patience and Joannae Burke.
In Titchbourne. The names of the parents are about right they were James Patience and Johanna Burke

Armed Forces / 39th Foot Regt
« on: Monday 19 April 21 14:07 BST (UK)  »
Would anyone know if the 39th Foot Regt Dorsetshire's would have been in Ireland between 1815 and about 1828.

I have a rellie who was married to a lady from Ireland, but I have no idea where in the country she comes from. I cannot find a marriage for them in England, so am assuming now that they married in Ireland.

I have just found attestation papers for a boy of the same name and age joining in 1815 aged 15 years in Winchester.

The eldest child that I can find for them was born in 1828 in Hampshire.

So if I can fit this Regiment into Ireland at about that time and where they were, it might give me a clue as to where my 3 X Great grandmother was born.

World War Two / Member of the 10th Hussars in India.
« on: Tuesday 13 April 21 12:19 BST (UK)  »
Trying to help some friends with family history.

They have a J or Joe GAINES who was in the 10th Hussars during the 1930s in Calcutta area of India where he married Muriel WOODS and had two daughters there. Sadly his wife who was born in Calcutta in 1908 died there in Dec 1939.

It is believed that on leaving the Hussars he became a member of the Calcutta Police.

They have no idea where or when he was born or died. Is it possible that the 10th Hussar records would have any details. Would it be worth them spending 30 to see if his Army record could be found with such scant detail.

Any help very much appreciated.

Other Countries / Calcutta, India help please

Trying to help friends with their tree.

They have a Muriel whose surname they believe was WOODS born on 13th July 1908 in Calcutta to parents believed to be Henry and Jessie WOODS.

Muriel married they believe a Joe GAINES who was in the 10th Hussars in Calcutta probably in the 1930s as they had two daughters Margaret b 1937 and Wendy 1938. Believed in the Eden Hospital, Calcutta.

Sadly Muriel died 13th December 1939 in Calcutta. Joe or J GAINES her husband went on to join the Calcutta Police apparently. They have no other information on him at all.

That is the only information they have so any help would be most appreciated.


Hampshire & IOW Lookup Requests / Marriage of a William BLAKE in Hordle, Hampshire
« on: Thursday 25 March 21 17:15 GMT (UK)  »

Looking please for a marriage of William BLAKE in Hordle, Lymington, Hampshire to a Phoebe. He was born I believe in 1794 and she was born about 1797.

It would have been prior to 1831 when they had Maria who I believe was the first child. But obviously could have been earlier.
