London and Middlesex / Naomi Oldridge nee Brees.
« on: Monday 26 October 20 16:26 GMT (UK)  »

 Looking at a small diversion from my main tree.

 Naomi Brees married John Oldridge 9th August 1787.
 Their daughter Elizabeth Flower Oldridge married the brother of my 5X great grandfather.

 So can anyone help with Naomi's birth at all please.

Both appear at Whites Alley Breams Buildings Chancery Lane in 1792 during a case in which they had been robbed from their home which appears to be above a snuff shop that they own.

 Any help would be great.......having a new kitchen fitted this week so need a distraction

  Thank you

Bedfordshire Lookup Requests / Help in Harlington please.
« on: Saturday 02 May 20 21:11 BST (UK)  »
Hello all....

Well as we are all stuck at home I've gone off on a tangent with one of my lines.
 I am trying to piece together the family of my maternal grandfathers half sisters and from their various marriages backwards.
  I have John Tavaner who marries MASCILLA READ 11th December 1799 in Harlington.
 A very unusual name.....but.....where does she come from? Any ideas or other spellings anyone can come up with would be a great help.
  Thanks for reading.


The Common Room / Help with a probate record.
« on: Friday 27 December 19 19:16 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all....

I'm trying to tie up some loose ends in our project on the local war memorial. I am looking for the death of Annie Cameron. Annie was born @1872 married to Hugh Cameron and with her family in Shenley Church End Buckinghamshire in 1901 & 1911 census. Hugh in 1939 still in Shenley now a widower.
There is a death in 1925  of Annie Cameron  ST George Hanover Square age 53 so born @ 1872.
I'm using Findmypast but cannot get a hit on a probate record. There is one in 1925 that appears on Ancestry site but I changed my sub to use the newspaper archive on FindMyPast.
 Can anyone tell me what it says please?

Many thanks to all and in advance best wishes for the New Year.

Canada / Prospect Place cemetery Toronto.
« on: Wednesday 25 April 18 20:13 BST (UK)  »

We have been looking at local lads who served in WW1 and have one who has flown the nest and gone to Canada.
Sidney Thomas Lickorish b 1898 Gayton Northants.
Joined up whilst living in Simpson Buckinghamshire to Northamptonshire regiment.
He travelled to Quebec in 1922 heading to work in Markham  Toronto as a farm labourer.
Sidney died 7th April 1926 and was buried in a veterans grave on 10th April.
His death cert ......if we have the right man.....has father as William but he was Thomas. Cause given as bronchial pneumonia.

My question is....if he is buried in a veterans grave does he has a headstone? As in a CWGC one.

Thanks Tazzie
