The Lighter Side / Information on Irvingites aka Catholic Apostolic Church
« on: Saturday 17 July 21 03:30 BST (UK)  »
I  have just come across a child baptised in 1836 in St Leonards, Shoreditch with the denomination noted as Irvingite, with the father giving his occupation as a whitesmith. By 1851 Census, father was listed as a priest.
From googling, I have found that this was named after Edward Irving  1792-1834 a deposed presbyterian minister.
Where can I get more information on this branch of the (catholic?) church?

The Lighter Side / Ancestry problem noticed on 1st April
« on: Thursday 01 April 21 01:37 BST (UK)  »
Is anyone else having  problem with Ancestry today -
a)I have been trying to look at the image of a 1839 Electoral Register for St James, Westminster and I get the comment -  this page is no longer available
b) also the image for 1813-2003 London, Church of England Deaths and Burials for the year 1849 comes up with parts of 3 images (nothing to do with the individual I am looking for)- more like the ones you might see in their ads.
I was looking for William Joseph Warren b1764.

World War One / WW1 Army Cyclists
« on: Wednesday 16 December 20 21:47 GMT (UK)  »
Have just come across a note in the October WDYTYA Magazine about the above.
Some historians are trying to contact descendants of Home Defence Army Cyclist Company. It is, I believe, part of a wider project into Army Cyclists generally, so if you are related to such a person, see the website for details:
My relative was in the Yeomanry Cyclist Regiment, but I contacted the address listed and my email was forwarded on to an interested party.

The Lighter Side / 1939 Register transcription
« on: Friday 11 December 20 02:20 GMT (UK)  »
I have just located another of the Hazlewood/Hazelwood family in this register and had to look twice at the transcription of the occupation. It read 'Tank attendant swage perfection'
The original reads 'Tank attendant sewage purification'.
Am guessing that the transcriber was not English.

The Lighter Side / An unexpected find!
« on: Monday 21 September 20 22:25 BST (UK)  »
I recently took out a short term ancestry subscription (I only intend to have it for a month or 2) to try to chip away at some of the brick walls in my research.
So, there I was looking at someone's public member tree which included my ggg grandfather - I am trying to find out where he was born, parents etc - and thought I would check that this tree tallied with mine. I got down to my father, mother and then me.
Apparently I died in 1994.
I have since sent a message to the tree's owner asking for resurrection!

Oxfordshire / Land of Nod, Neithrop
« on: Sunday 06 September 20 07:22 BST (UK)  »
In the 1841 Census for William Azlewood b1801, the address listed is
Land of Nod, Banbury. Town Neithrop. Ref H0107/873/3/13/19.
Looking at the actual sheet, Land of Nod is after Parsons Meadow, Bridge Wharf, Mill and before Back Lane.
I did look at google but could only find a place in Yorkshire with that name.
Does anyone have any idea where it is or how it got its name?  I did wonder about a pub but there are no publicans listed.

The Lighter Side / Spasa Pavlovic
« on: Saturday 08 August 20 04:06 BST (UK)  »
Another unusual name for my tree.
Spasa was the 2nd husband of one of my Hazlewoods. Apparently he was b1915 (where?) and d1984 in Dudley.
Marriage took place in 1953 in Oldbury, Worcestershire.
Is the surname from the old Yugoslavia region? Is there an english equivalent for Spasa?

England / Vanishing Hazlewood/Allitt children
« on: Friday 08 May 20 01:31 BST (UK)  »
I am going round in circles trying to locate the following children after 1861 Census:
Mother Ann Hazlewood 1828 Mollington - 1862
    William Thomas (seems to be known as Thomas) Hazlewood bc 1846 Mollington ) baptized Stoke
    John  Hazlewood bc 1848 Neithrop                                                                   )  25/12/1859
                                                                                                                         ) as Hazlewood/
    George Hazlewood  bc 1851 - ?Banbury 1851 Dec 16 19 no mmn?                    ) baptized Stoke
    Mary Anne Hazlewood bc 1855                                                                       )  4/2/1861
    Charles Henry Hazlewood bc 1856-? Banbury 1856 Jun 3a 612 no mmn?           ) as Hazlewood/
    Catherine Hallett b1860 Foleshill  Mar 6d 395 mmn Hazlewood                          )      Allitt
Ann Hazlewood married Thomas Allitt in 1861 Walsgrave on Sowe Mar 6 379 .
In 1861, Thomas and Ann are listed  as Hallett and the children as Hazlewood in Stoke, Warwickshire RG09/2200/70/28.
Ann Allitt died in 1862 Foleshill Dec 6d 299 and Thomas Allitt died in 1873 Foleshill Mar 6d 284.
I did find Thomas in 1871 , as Allett, as a patient in hospital in Coventry RG10/3182/71/2 following an assault.
Sorry for the scrappy bits of information.
