Armed Forces / Cathham, Kent
« on: Monday 14 January 19 15:39 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I've hit a Brick wall on Joseph John Manners born 23 Nov 1840 in Chatham in Kent.  His father David was a soldier.  There are no records(that I can find) preseeding his marriage so I thought I could try and find Dad.  I need soldiers records for Chatham Kent for the beginning of 1840 do you know where these might be.  Secondly, there is no record of his birth in BMD indexes how usual is this for a birth not to be registered?

Warwickshire Lookup Requests / Stratford upon Avon GEORGE MACE

Hi I'm looking for George Mace's parents he was born around 1560 in Stratford upon avon
I have his marriage index to Ane Ange in 1584 1nd his death index for 1648 which states his father of George.  However I would like to find His birth/ baptism to confirm this.  The problem being that it has been suggested that his Father was a James Massey and I think that is too big a jump.
