The Common Room / Who was the Doctor?
« on: Thursday 14 May 20 10:30 BST (UK)  »
Just trying to fill some gaps in my g'aunts history....
Elizabeth Armer was born 28 March 1886 in Dalton in Furness. Her mother was Mary Maria Armer, her absent father was William.
In 1891, Elizabeth is with her g'parents, the Colbecks, in Toxteth, Lancashire.
I can't find Elizabeth in the 1901 census.
By 1901 her mother Mary Maria Armer had moved to Kendal and was now a 'McNamara'.
Elizabeth Armer moved to Devon (date?) with her employer - thought to be a Doctor - and married Fred Ash Davis in Brixham on 16 Aug. 1906.

Who was the Doctor? Where was she in 1901?

Family History Beginners Board / Can't make Cowling connection...
« on: Monday 30 September 19 08:13 BST (UK)  »
I can't find early records regarding Daisy (aka Margaret) Cowling, born ~1893, the daughter of Fred Cowling and Lillian Andrews - as stated in her marriage certificate to Nicola Amicangioli in 1913 in Toronto. She states she was from Liskeard in Cornwall and appears to have been born before her parents were married. Her claimed parents and siblings appear in the English 1911 census, sailing to Canada later in the year.

But - I can't find Daisy/Margaret's birth/baptism/travel records anywhere. I am a distant DNA connection to the Amicangioli's through the Cowling line and would like to prove the connection through records!


Westmorland / Kendal Yards
« on: Thursday 23 August 18 19:57 BST (UK)  »
Am I correct in thinking...

.... ?? Yd 161 Highgate, Kendal is the same place as ?? Jennings Yard, Kendal?

I've been quite confused by the numbering scheme...!


The Common Room / What is a 'portean jet'
« on: Monday 26 February 18 22:02 GMT (UK)  »
I can't find out what a 'portean jet' is - as written up in the following newspaper article. Any ideas?

Ambleside Petty Sessions - Monday, Oct 15 1860 (Before J. Davy, Esq.)
- William Thompson, who had the appearance of a tramp, was brought up in custody of Mr. Superintendent Hibberd and two other officers, charged with stealing a copper kettle, the property of James Dodd, of Troutbeck, and a portean jet with fittings, the property of Mr. Wrigley; and John Heaps, of Kendal, tinner, brazier, and grocer, was subsequently charged, at the instance of Mr. Hibberd, with receiving the above mentioned articles knowing them to have been stolen. Mr. R.F. Thompson, solicitor, Kendal, appeared to watch the case on the part of Mr. Heaps. James Dodd said that, to the best of his belief, the kettle now produced was his kettle, that he saw it on the 19th of August last, at his bog house, where it was left. Police-sergeant Hoggarth deposed that he found the property at Mr. Heaps's. He produced the kettle, but said that he had nothing else from the prisoner. He found the prisoner in one of the lodging houses in Kendal, and on asking him where he got the property, he replied that he had bought it at Bowness. He told the officer he had bought both copper and lead, and that he had sold it all to Mr. Heaps for 7s. The officer then took the prisoner into custody for stealing them. He next went to Mr. Heap's shop and told him that the prisoner was apprehended, and that he must give up all. Mr. Heaps appeared excited and trembled, and said to his wife, "Go and fetch them up." Mrs. Heaps went into a room and borought out the copper measure produced. He next went into the cellar, followed by witness and police-constable Fawcett, when the lead produced was found in a corner under some shavings. Witness asked if that was all. Mr. Heaps said yes. Witness then took the articles away in his posession. By Mr. Thompson. - Mr. Heaps was a respectable man for anything he knew. On a former occasion some time ago he assisted to search Mr. Heaps's premises under a search warrant, but found nothing. Did not search under a warrant this time. Did not hear police-constable Fawcett say anything to Mr. Heaps about transportation or imprisonment. In the second case, Mr. Bonney, a plumber at Ambleside, proved selling the portean jet to Mr. Wrigley; that he had used it; and that the one produced, thought broken and incomplete, was to the best of his belief, the one sold. Thomas Holmes, under gardener to Mr. Wrigley, further identified the jet....................etc...etc
