New Zealand / John PRIAULX death between 1902 and 1905
« on: Saturday 17 July 21 09:52 BST (UK)  »
I have been contacted by a friend asking for help to find the death of John PRIAULX.

He married her relative Amelia REID previously THORNALLY in NZ in 1892
he appears in the newspapers in March 1902 qualifying for the pension.

Amelia died in 1909 and her will is on Archway. Dated 20 Feb 1905, She is described as a widow of the late John Priaulx

Can anyone see his death?
I feel I have tried every possibly wild card variant, but obviously I have missed the crucial one!

Thank you very much

Surname of the witness John - transcribed on Freereg as Scotchmer

The "S" doesn't look the same as the S of Solomon to me.  But Am willing to be over-ruled

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / What is the mother’s name?
« on: Friday 09 July 21 02:41 BST (UK)  »
I’ve already posted this clip on another query

But…can anyone make any other interpretation of the mother’s name in this clip than the one I have. I am starting to think she is a fictional character!

Appeared personally the same day the Rt Hon’ble Jane
Countess of Levin of St James in the County afsd by virtue of her corporal
Oath Deposeth that she is Mother to the
 aforesaid Elianora Chichester & that she
 is consenting to ye same.


I don’t know what it says in the lower left corner

Would be grateful if someone could repair the rip in this photograph.

Thank you

I have a document from LMA. regarding Elizabeth MORGAN suing for restoration of conjugal rites (which I suppose is code for needing money to support herself) from her husband John MORGAN (he of the Inner Temple. (Who had children with someone named Sarah)

It says

"... in Our Diocese of London to appear personally before the Right Worshipful
John Betterworth Doctor of Laws Vicar General and Offical Principal of our
Consistorial and Episcopal Court of London lawfully apointed his
Surrogate or Some other competent Judge in this behalf in the Common Hall of Doctors
Commons situate in the Parish of St Benedict near Pauls Wharfe London"

The document with this in it is dated 26 June 1764. It was served on the 29th June, and returned on the 2nd July 1764.

Where might I find records of the hearing at Doctor's commons?   Which should have been in the week of 2nd July, if not actually on  the 2nd July (he had to present himself three days after being served

I have searched the Lambeth Palace Archives online Catalogue, SoG catalogue and looked more at LMA.  But I suspect am not searching in the right way.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Occupation of Jean Morgue
« on: Saturday 26 June 21 12:18 BST (UK)  »
This is a baptism in the French Protestant church of the Hospital in Spitalfields

The entries are in french but the occupations of the fathers are in English.

So is Jean Morgue’s occupation “turns a mill”???

Surrey / MORGAN, William: St. Thomas, Southwark, gent. 1749
« on: Friday 18 June 21 10:13 BST (UK)  »
Morgan, William: St. Thomas, Southwark, gent

The will for this man is offsite at National Archives  but it is one I have to order. Before I risk the £8.20 quote fee plus whatever the copying fee is I wondered if anyone could see anything I have missed that might  help pin his identity down a bit more.

The notes at TNA say the date refers to the date of the document, not the date of probate etc.  so he may not have died in 1749

I don't see any reference that seems to fit on London Lives, nor LMA, nor Ancestry.
On FindMyPast there is a burial 23 March 1749 at All Hallows the Great. but it is a transcription only and no help.   Isn't All Hallows on the wrong side of the river?
I cannot see a death or a report of the will (which is in Supplementary Will Series 1 "Most of these records are contentious" ) in the newspapers.

I am trying to track down the William who was father of David Walter MORGAN Baptism St George, Southwark, 1733 (died 1795) about whom there are many threads on RC.  In the hope that he is also the father of John MORGAN of the Inner Temple c 1734 - 1803

(Although the will of David Walter's uncle the Rev John Morgan who died 1776 does not mention any other Morgan than David Walter, I live in hope).

Many Thanks
