Hello

I would be very grateful to anyone with access to the parish registers for Edmondthorpe who could look up this marriage which appears on the IGI:

Robert Pollard and Mary Kettle on 1 January 1835

I am hoping that the entry may give details of the groom's parish.

Thank you very much :)

World War Two / Royal Signals - France May/June 1940
« on: Tuesday 12 October 10 15:15 BST (UK)  »
My father (born 1899) served in the Royal Corps of Signals during WW2.  Initially he joined the Supplementary Reserve of Officers of the RCS as a Second Lieutenant in 1924, was promoted to Lieutenant in 1927 and in 1936 was transferred to the Regular Reserve of Officers. 

At the beginning of the war he was attached to 1st Operators Training Battalion based at Catterick where he remained until June 1941 except that his records also show that during that period he was posted from ‘1st S.T.C’ to the BEF on 14 May 1940 and that he returned to the UK from the BEF on 24 June 1940.

My father never mentioned being in France during WW2 and I had always understood that he was too old to be posted abroad.  The only other clue was that my father once told my brother that he had set up communications for Winston Churchill at some point during the WW2 (was this at the time of Churchill’s visit to France on 31 May or his two visits around 11- 13th June 1940?).

I am wondering if anyone can suggest what section of the RCS my father might have been attached to when he was in France as I would like to find out more about what he was doing.  It appears he was in France for almost 3 weeks after the Dunkirk evacuations and I appreciate that this period of history is not so well documented but I would be grateful for any insights or suggestions.

Australia / WA State Prison Records - YEMM Howard Thomas
« on: Tuesday 24 August 10 13:21 BST (UK)  »
Is there anyone who regularly visits WA State Archives who would be able to look at series 672 which is a register of prisoners who were at Freemantle Prison?

I am seeking information concerning my great uncle Howard Thomas YEMM who was born in Leicestershire, England in 1891 and who served several prison sentences in WA during the 1920s.

I believe that Series 672 is indexed by prisoner number so that it is first necessary to use a nominal card index to discover the prisoner's number.

I would be very grateful to anyone who is able to help  :)

Thanks very much

Esau (occ needlemaker) was baptised at Long Crendon on 26 Oct 1795 and was buried there on 25 June 1826 age 30.  He had a daughter Catherine born c 1826 at Long Crendon who later married Henry Edwards (of Chilton, Bucks) in 1853 at Long Crendon.  Catherine died in 1865  and the couple do not appear to have had any children.

I would like to find out who Catherine's mother was but Esau's marriage is not on the Bucks or Oxfordshire marriage database/index  There is no baptism recorded for Catherine and so far I have been unable to find any other children for Esau.

Is anyone able to add anything to the information which I already have?

Thanks very much
