Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Parish Records for St Maurice Winchester
« on: Thursday 23 September 21 13:08 BST (UK)  »

I thought I would just ask if anyone knows where I can access the parish records for St Maurice Winchester. I have two marriages I would like to see the full entry for, one 1856 and one 1858.
Neither Ancestry or FindMyPast have them, and they seem to exist because Family Search references them though I can't see the image and the transcription is not complete.
Any help before i have to buy certificates would be greatly appreciated.
1. marriage 23 Dec 1856 Peter Head / Elizabeth and Fisher
2. marriage 14 Dec 1858 Robert William Head / Mary Ann Pearce


Dublin / Birth Certificate
« on: Thursday 17 June 21 15:13 BST (UK)  »
I was after a bit of advice. I have been looking for a birth of Elizabeth Josephine Browne from the Dublin area in c1920. Ancestry only has one born in 1918......
Elizabeth Josephine Browne
Date of Registration:   Jul-Aug-Sep 1918
Registration District:   Dublin South
Birth Country:   Ireland
Volume:   2
Page:   528

However when I have looked on the Ireland GRO site or equivalent, I cannot find a corresponding birth in order to buy a birth certificate.  Can anyone suggest where I may be going wrong. While I am well versed in genealogy, I have not previously applied in Ireland for certificates. Any signposting would be greatly appreciated.


The attached refers to a 1839 conviction for Jesse Johnson (bn 1795). This document is the Prison Hulk Leviathan and the two column refer to Gaoler's report and How disposed of.  Jesse's is the bottom entry and I am trying to understand what the comment is for the right column 'How disposed of'.  I don't actually know where he was transported to either and can't find reference to that. Is anyone familiar with what looks like 'Paw' as a disposal? 
Jesse was from Sutton Mandeville in Wiltshire and not to be confused with a convict of the ame name from Wells Somerset who was sent to Tasmania the following year.
Any help understanding this entry would be greatly appreciated.


The Common Room / Sunday morning transcription
« on: Sunday 07 October 18 10:23 BST (UK)  »
I just wanted to compare my slightly uncomplete transcription of the attached will and to see it through fresh eyes which mine are far from....
If anyone is more accustomed to reading the old script I'd love to know what you see here, I think I have most but certainly not all....

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help to read a name- COMPLETE (THANKS)
« on: Monday 13 August 18 12:42 BST (UK)  »
I am having difficulty reading a name on a marriage entry of 1865 in Dundee and wondered what your views were on it.  It is the names of the parents of the bride.
For the father it says, George Limerick, soldier, deceased. For the mother it says Emma Limerick, MS Mc????? deceased. 
I wonder if anyone can decipher this surname for me please.



I was wondering if someone is visiting the Wellington Archives they wuld be kind enough to look up for me.

PM me for email address.

Thank you very much.

New Zealand Completed Requests / John Leonard Clegg RNZAF
« on: Thursday 05 July 18 18:06 BST (UK)  »

I don't currently have international access, and was wondering if anyone has a little time just to have a little look for me....I am trying to establish if a John Leonard Clegg John who served in the RNZAF and became a prisoner of war in WW2 with the Japanese and was repatriated back to NZ in 1945 is the same John Leonard Clegg who was born 1906 in West Derby England.  I was wondering if anyone could perhaps find his death in NZ (I don't know when) and see if the date of birth tallies up.
He is not to be confused with an eminent mental health doctor of the same name born 1906 also in West Derby Lancs. 
I recognise this is a shot in the dark.  I would like to contact any descendants of his and so finding his death is a start.  His father was John William Clegg the brother of my Great Grandfather. 


Lancashire / Burials for Edge Lane West Derby
« on: Tuesday 10 April 18 13:30 BST (UK)  »
I've been trying to find a burial for my 2xGreats James and Sarah Ann Clegg.  They lived at 11 Edge Lane West Derby.
James died 21st January 1897 at the address, and Mary Ann died on 21st April 1905 at a no1 same road, but still lived at no11. (not to be confused with a Mary Ann Clegg who died the same day in Bolton)
I am obviously hoping as ever for a stone as my family history is stubbornly devoid of them.  I have looked at available records of St Mary's locally, but only those on Family Search, and also there is nothing on OPC.  I was wondering if anyone could point me at any other possible places to search for them.
Thank you

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Lancashire archive visit
« on: Sunday 08 April 18 23:01 BST (UK)  »
I'm not sure if this is the place for this, or indeed if it is allowed to ask.....I was wondering if anyone if anyone goes to a Lancashire archives in Preston if they could look up a document for me and get a scan or photocopy and scan for me at all.  I can ask them directly but it seems quite expensive for one document.
If anyone goes there and is happy to do so PM me. The reference is QSP/2751/82  and the document entitled “Windle. Order of filiation and maintenance of Thomas, bastard child of Samuel Pickavance, watchmaker, and Jane Pickavance, singlewoman.”  I'd been looking for the baptism of Thomas my Gx5 Grandfather for a long time before coming across this document which matches him perfectly.
