Durham Completed Look up Requests / Godfordson(Godferson) Completed
« on: Wednesday 26 November 08 12:46 GMT (UK)  »
My gt.gt.gt Grandfather was Thomas Godfordson who married Sarah in 1808 in Sunderland.I am unable to find any reference to him other than his children.
I believe that he may have been a PRIVATEER and therefore I suppose that anything could have happened.
I have come across a marriage between Laurence Godferson and Elizabeth Wilson 0n 31 -03-1799 at St. Hilda's South Shields.
I think that Thomas and Laurence may have been siblings as it is such an uncommon name ;has anyone any ideas as to how I might prove/disprove this.
Many thanks in advance

Family History Beginners Board / Privateers
« on: Monday 31 December 07 16:40 GMT (UK)  »
Is there anyone out there who knows whether there are any registers of Privateers who operated out of the UK.
I was told by a relative some 40 years ago that there had been a Privateer in the family but all of his paperwork was thrown away after he died.
The only possible connection that I have come across is a Thomas Godfordson who was a native of Wales and was a Mariner;he would have been born in the late 1700's.He was living in Sunderland when his children were born between 1806 and 1814.
Any help would be gratefully received

Wales / Thomas Godfordson-bornc1777
« on: Tuesday 18 December 07 11:10 GMT (UK)  »
Thomas was my gt.gt.gtGrandfather and I have always believed that the family belonged to Sunderland;however I've just found out that his Daughter Catherine's (b1810 Sunderland)baptism record states that Thomas was a Mariner and was a native of Wales.
I have plenty of information on his descendants but know nothing about him ;the only thing that sticks in my mind is that I was told many years ago by one of my mother's cousins there was a "Privateer" in the family.
I may be clutching at straws linking Thomas(a mariner) to this fact and I would be exremely grateful if anyone could help me with this

I have plenty of information on his descendants but know nothing about him ;the only thing that might ring a bell is the fact that somewhere in the past there was a "Privateer" in the family.
Any suggestions as to where I might more information on this aspect would be very well received.

Canada Lookup Request / Alfred Reginald Taylor
« on: Wednesday 08 March 06 17:49 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking for help in tracing his life in Canada;Alfred was born in1875  in Stratford,London.He went out to Canada and worked on the Canadian Pacific Railway;I believe that one of his brothers worked in Canada with him-they were George John(1872),Robert J V (1877),Ernest (1879).

All I know about Alfred is that his wife to be Ellen Stenning wouldn't emigrate to Canada and he came back to England and married in 1911
