Cambridgeshire Lookup Requests / Whittlesea - Gutridge / Guttridge / Gutteridge
« on: Friday 26 February 21 18:10 GMT (UK)  »
Thomas Gutridge was born in Whittlesea round about June / July 1819 (worked out according to dates on his regimental papers)

I have searched everywhere I can think of, using each of the different ways of spelling the surname, but have had no luck.

I would really appreciate any assistance in finding his baptism / names of his parents. 

Many thanks.

Armed Forces / Service records 1840 - 1858 - COMPLETED
« on: Friday 26 February 21 18:02 GMT (UK)  »
Thomas Gutridge enlisted in January 1840 with either the 45th Regiment of Foot or the 45th Regiment of Infantry.  His service number was 1667.

I have his regimental papers from FindMyPast which are dated 1858 when he was discharged.  However these do not show where he served.

Would a service record be available anywhere, and would this possibly give his next of kin?

This is a topic I know next to nothing about, so would appreciate any assistance.  Thanks

Surrey Lookup Requests / John Pontifex 1771-1841
« on: Monday 20 July 20 18:39 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to trace the marriage of John Pontifex 1771-1841 to Ann Barnard born between 1786 and 1779 who died in London on 10 November 1863.  Ann Barnard was born in Denston, Suffolk, and John was born in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.

Their only child Ann Pontifex was born in Mitchem, Surrey on 14 April 1810, so I think it is possible that they married there round about 1808/1809.

There is another Ann who married a Pontifex born in 1779 but she was not born in Suffolk and died in February 1863 not November 1863.

Any help would really be appreciated.

Other Countries / Fred Wood - Mexico City
« on: Wednesday 03 June 20 18:05 BST (UK)  »
I would appreciate assistance in finding a death notice or details of the death of Fred Woods who is recorded in the British Consular Deaths 1936-1940, having died in Mexico City. The death is recorded as being in Volume 30 page 210.

He was possibly married to Maria Villar y Gonzalez, and had a child with her - Maria Elvira Woods Villar who was baptised on 28/1/1912 in San Miquel Arcangel, Miguel Hidalgo, Ciudad de Mexico.

His full names were Frederick Florestan Tresviso Woods, born about 1882 in Spain, but he used either Frederick/Fred/Florestan.

Many thanks

Evening.  I would really appreciate it if someone could give me an idea of the possible year that these  were taken.

My family has no idea who the people are. There are a couple of names on the back, and I would like to try and trace the family instead of just tossing them in the bin.

Many thanks

Surrey / Found photographs
« on: Wednesday 06 May 20 10:46 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone  recognise these names ..... Eva who had a son Oscar?  Or a Noel Sytas/Eytas/Sykes? We have found two wedding photographs which mean nothing to us. Photographs were taken by Phox Studio, who were based in Mitcham, Surrey.  Don't want to destroy them.

Suffolk Lookup Requests / John and Oscar (Oskar) Hatch - Wiston (Wissington) Suffolk
« on: Friday 21 February 20 08:41 GMT (UK)  »
I would really appreciate finding the parents of John and Oscar Hatch. John was born in Wissington December 1853 and Oscar in June 1855.
In the 1861 census they are both listed as the sons (?) of Robert Radley, and in the 1871 census as boarders in his house.
Robert married a Francis Mills in Wissington on 1/1/1829. I have checked their three daughters (Mary 1830, Amelia 1832 and Eliza 1836) and none of them married a Hatch. Looking at the various census records for Robert Radley it appears that he fathered children with his housekeeper, so could possibly have fathered the two Hatch children out of wedlock as well.
I have looked at billiongraves and findagrave and cannot find a Hatch buried in Suffolk.
John died in South Africa but did not leave an estate, and no parents were listed on his death certificate.  Oscar died in Chatham, Kent in 1936.
I have looked at FindMyPast and familysearch and found nothing!  I would really appreciate any help in finding their parents.
Many thanks

Down / Millisle Mills
« on: Monday 03 February 20 06:41 GMT (UK)  »
My great grand uncle James Fulton purchased the Millisle mills in 1888 from the Carmichael family. According to the Millisle Walking guide James and his brother George made their fortunes in South America.

I would dearly love to know how they made their fortune, and whether there is any paperwork in this regard.

Down / Amelia Fulton
« on: Monday 16 December 19 15:21 GMT (UK)  »
Amelia Fulton was born on 17 November 1879 in Donaghadee to a John Fulton and Agnes McMachon Fulton. Although I do not have a marriage for John and Agnes, I am pretty sure that he is my great-grandfather.

Agnes McMahon came out to South Africa with John, and died there in 1888 with her surname being spelt without the "". Her death notice states that she had no living children, so I assume that Amelia died in Donaghadee.

I would really appreciate it if someone could give me her date of death. I have been unable to find a gravestone anywhere for her.

Many thanks
