Worcestershire Lookup Requests / Charles Oakley, Kidderminster
« on: Monday 22 April 19 19:33 BST (UK)  »
I'm having trouble locating Charles Oakley, born approx 1836, Kidderminster.

Ive found him in the 81 and 91 Census, and know him to be in India in 61 and 71.

He married Mary Covington, born Ireland 1829. I have a feeling Covington might not be her maiden name, but instead her previously married name.

Anyway, I'm having trouble locating him in 61, and thus finding out who his parents are.

Can anyone help? Many thanks.

Other Countries / East India Company Employees
« on: Sunday 21 April 19 11:55 BST (UK)  »
Hello everyone, so yesterday I solved a mystery as to why I couldn't find my great great grandmother or her family prior to a the 1881 Census, firstly, they weren't here, secondly, her parents were Irish, which I didn't know, so chance are they weren't here either.

I finally found someone with the same name as her parents in the 91 census, same profession (bricklayer) and a younger Sibling I knew nothing of. This younger siblings place of birth said she was born in East India.

Oddly, I also found a registration for someone of the same name, and same time in Walsall, (where they were from)
Would British subjects in India be registered over here still?

Also, could someone point me in the direction of a register of employees of the EIC and its successor after it was disbanded? (whose name I forget, its been years since school)
Would a bricklayer be a desirable trade for the EIC?

Many thanks!

Norfolk Lookup Requests / Barrett - 1911
« on: Sunday 03 February 19 13:30 GMT (UK)  »
Could someone please Search for Violet May Barrett in the 1911 Census please.
She would of been based in King's Lynn and would of been around 5/6 years old at the time of the 1911 Census.

Information of her family would be a great help in determining how me and a DNA match are related!

Cambridgeshire Lookup Requests / Thorney Huguenots
« on: Tuesday 22 May 18 17:55 BST (UK)  »
Hello everyone.

I'm wondering if anyone could look up some names on the Huguenot parish records for me please.

I have Jaques Flahau, and his wife Anne Lisy who were married some time before 1668 in/around The Thorney area. They had a son, also Jaques Flahau, among others.

Wondering if someone could find marriage/baptisms for Jaques Snr & Anne.

Many thanks


Hertfordshire / Baptism Search - Thomas Rich
« on: Monday 05 March 18 10:43 GMT (UK)  »
Hello everyone.

I'm looking for some help to find the baptism of Thomas Rich.

I've found his marriage to Rose Chapman in 1704, in Essendon, but having trouble finding his Baptism.

I did find some record of him being the son of a Leonard Rich, but this would put him at 8 years old at the time of his marriage to Rose!

Therefore I think it's more likely he's a sibling or cousin of Leonard, than a son.

Any help appreciated

Norfolk / Barrett/Youngs West Rudham
« on: Sunday 21 May 17 15:23 BST (UK)  »
Hello everyone.

I've come to a bit of a brick wall and not sure I know how to resolve it so thought I'd ask for some help!

My direct ancestors married in West Rudham in 1796. However I can't seem to find them before this.

There are William Barretts and Mary Youngs in nearby Tittleshall. 3 William Barretts to William and Mary Barrett (I presume the previous two died, but can't find buriel records) and a Mary Youngs.

However this would put William at 14 at time of Marriage and Mary at 34. I thought this unlikely to be either of them.

I did however find possible the Parents of William Barrett, William and Mary, nee Forby.  And the witness was a Alies  (Alice?) Youngs.

Not really sure where to go with this without taking wild guesses!

Any help appreciated.

Family History Beginners Board / Where would I begin to look?

Not sure where to begin to look for some potentially living family - especially since I have no names!

Rumors are that my grandfather fathered twin boys in Boston, Lincolnshire, despite being married to my grandmother at the time. I have a rough idea of this being between 1946-1956

My grandparents are dead, as is my uncle who is the one who told my mother about this rumor.

Where would I begin to look?

Norfolk Lookup Requests / Hastings
« on: Saturday 03 November 07 01:36 GMT (UK)  »
Could someone be so kind to look up;

Ethel Kate Hastings, born c1888, King's Lynn or one of the surrounding parishes.

I know she married a Arthur Griggs, but was wondering if she had any siblings.

I'm trying to prove a link between me and my friend, i've known over 20 years! We could be related!!

Thanks in advance!
