Family History Beginners Board / Accuracy of 1939 Register Added Notes?
« on: Monday 21 May 18 11:07 BST (UK)  »
While browsing I came across an unknown daughter of one of my distant relations (I'd thought they'd only had children that died in infancy).  Checked her out and she is definitely theirs :-)  However theres a handwritten note giving her married name which is fine BUT when I checked this the spelling of her first name is different in the records.   I can find an alternative marriage with her name spelt correctly to someone else.  So how much reliance can I place on the note?  (Both marriages took place in the war years)

Opinions /advice please

Armed Forces / Court Martial
« on: Saturday 28 October 17 12:51 BST (UK)  »
Richard Colchester Pitt born 1843.    I find him being court martialled in Bangalore India in 1862 for insubordination and getting 4 years penal servitude.   It seems he was shipped back to England and in 1864 was in an asylum.  Indeed he went to Broadmoor in 1868 !   

I wondered if there was any way of seeing a record of his court martial.  I'd be interested to see if there was any sign of his mental issues then ( his Broadmoor record makes very sad reading)

after a couple of years having a relative just hanging there with only the barest info, suddenly a tiny snippet has been added and using that found her marriage, children and death.  Her son died in his 20s, her daughter emigrated to America, and I've managed to close off that particular branch. Absurdly pleased..........

Family History Beginners Board / Out of Ideas
« on: Wednesday 28 August 13 20:10 BST (UK)  »
I've lost track of my G Grandmother Elizabeth Bown.  In 1841 shes living with her family in West Cranmore Somerset, and the next time I find her is in 1862 on her marriage in London.
I've checked her address as shown then on the '61 census but shes not living there.
 Any ideas please as I'm getting frustrated  ::)

Family History Beginners Board / Broadmoor Records
« on: Tuesday 06 August 13 12:40 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone tell me if/where I would be able to access details of an inpatient of Broadmoor.
It was over 100 years ago as I seem to remember that such records are sealed for that time.
Thanks in advance

Occupation Interests / Portrait Painter
« on: Thursday 15 November 12 18:40 GMT (UK)  »
My GG Grandfather James Begbie is listed as being a portrait painter or artist on various census throughout his lifetime.  He lived near Regents Park London which I would have thought was a  fairly prosperous area.  Googling him doesnt have any results, but I wondered if anyone could point me in the direction of someone or somewhere who may have some knowledge of his paintings?

Many thanks

East Lothian (Haddingtonshire) / James Begbie
« on: Tuesday 02 October 12 13:22 BST (UK)  »
Is my GGG Grandfather.  I've found him marrying Isobel Cockburn in 1804  at St Cuthberts Edinburgh, and his son (another James) being born the same year in Haddington. 
I'm stuck now as I dont know how to find any more info.
Any guidance would be great
