One Name Studies: A to G / Boulcott
« on: Tuesday 27 April 10 20:55 BST (UK)  »
I have some data on the Boulcott name, mostly from the Birmingham area, with links to London and by 1911 to other areas as well. The name appears to be concentrated originally in Worcestershire and Herefordshire. No doubt related to Bowlcott but I don't have much on that one.


Essex Completed Lookup Requests / Cowland
« on: Friday 27 November 09 10:03 GMT (UK)  »
My great x3 grandmother was Lucy Cowland, born in Moreton, Essex about 1799. I'd be interested to hear from anyone with knowledge of this surname in that area.


The Common Room / Getting around
« on: Monday 09 March 09 21:25 GMT (UK)  »
Dear everyone,

Is there a place where family historians get together to offer and request lifts? There must be a number of people travelling to archives who might be happy to offer car space to a fellow traveller.

Any ideas?


For Sale / Wanted / Events / Wanted: lift from York to Lincoln
« on: Monday 09 March 09 21:15 GMT (UK)  »
I want to visit Lincolnshire Archives some time this year; I live in York. Anyone going my way who would like to offer a lift?

Cork / Aghadown: McCarthy
« on: Monday 02 February 09 23:02 GMT (UK)  »
My ancestors appear to hail from Aghadown near Skibbereen. Those born in Ireland, before they moved to London, include Catherine about 1842, Honora about 1848, and Michael about 1851. Their father was John, born about 1814. He married a Jane (possibly Regan) from Dublin. Does anyone know how I can move forward (or, rather, backward) with this family?

US Completed Requests / Askwith in Nebraska census look up
« on: Tuesday 27 May 08 21:23 BST (UK)  »
I have a hand drawn family tree which says that one of my great great grandmother's (un-named) brothers emigrated from Lincolnshire to Nebraska, where he lived with his children. The name is Askwith, sometimes spelt Asquith. My ancestor was born in 1818; I don't know when the brother was born. The family came from around Tattershall in the south of Lincolnshire. If anyone can find any possible details of this family in the Nebraska census I would be really interested. But perhaps there is not enough information here to make a search?

United States of America / Law and Baker: Lincolnshire to Michigan
« on: Saturday 24 May 08 09:32 BST (UK)  »
Joseph Law, born Surfleet, Lincs c. 1837, emigrated to Michigan about 1869 with his wife Mary Baker and son John. They settled in Lapeer County. I'd be delighted to meet any descendants.


Unwanted Birth, Marriage, Death Certs A to G / BARBER/CLARK Marriage 1848
« on: Friday 04 April 08 23:21 BST (UK)  »
I have a copy of the marriage licence allegation for George Clark of St. Martin in the Fields to marry Martha Barber, widow, at St. Alban in the city of London, dated 17 August 1848.

The Common Room / Catholic registrations of birth
« on: Friday 04 April 08 22:57 BST (UK)  »
I have several Catholic ancestors born in London between 1837 and 1875 for whom I have not yet found a birth registration. I wonder if anyone else has the same experience? I suspect that it wasn't part of the culture of poor Irish Catholics at that time. I asked Michael Gandy about it; he didn't like this explanation and suggested I look in the local register offices. This would imply that a number of local registrations did not make it into the national indexes. Any comments, anyone?
