I have noticed the medallion to the left of a subject area under Forum, e.g. The Common Room or Armed Forces, will be lit up indicating there are unread posts.  Sometimes they are colored brown and sometimes green.  What is the difference?

I am trying to follow the Rumley family in the Dartford area c.1700s and 1800s.

Any interest out there?

Kent Lookup Requests / RUMLEY surname in Kent
« on: Monday 20 August 18 16:02 BST (UK)  »

My 2nd great-grandparents were Charles Rumley and Elizabeth Nigh.  I have his father as James Rumley who married Mary Ann Sharp in 1808 but because the first child showed up in 1813 makes me wonder if I have the correct parents.

Any Rumley researchers out there looking at Kent, especially Dartford?


The Common Room / Welsh School in Marylebone
« on: Tuesday 24 July 18 22:43 BST (UK)  »
My second great-grandparents died in Chippenham, Wilts in 1836 leaving 4 children, 3 boys and a girl named Sarah Ann[e] Jones.  I think I have traced the boys in 1851 to Kensington and Hammersmith (being a non-Brit I see from maps that they are very close, so that makes sense).  It's their sister that I am trying to find.

I found a Sarah Jones on the 1841 census living with other children at Welsh School in Marylebone.    I think I have found 2 of the boys living in Finsbury in 1841 as well.  Those locations are very close.

What I don't understand is the nature of Welsh School.  Was it exclusively for Welsh children or could a Jones from Wiltshire be admitted?  I found the youngest boy in a workhouse in Lacock in 1841 and guessed the authorities had placed him there (he would have been about 11).  Could the authorities have placed Sarah Ann Jones in Welsh School?  A little insight would be appreciated.

Incidently I found a marriage of a Sarah Ann Jones in 1850 at Holy Trinity Church in Holborn.  (The father's name and occupation matched the information I had).  The church was on Gray's Inn Road.  So was the Welsh School.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Tracing the SCALES family

Ann Scales was my 2nd great-grandmother.  She married Thomas Fevers in 1814 in Doncaster.  I have an 1841 census that indicates that she is about 50 years old which has her born around 1791.
I also have a death certificate which says she died in 1848 in Doncaster at age 60 so we are a little off but nothing serious.

The Scales name is common in this part of South Yorks and there are several Anns and Hannahs (and Williams).  One Ann was born in Armthorpe in 1791 and that is the one I am interested in because the timing is reasonable.  Her parents were William and Ann.

From FindMyPast I found a William Scales who married an Ann Scoles in 1785 in Doncaster.  It appears as though this couple had the following children:
1785 - Mary
1789 - Thomas
1791 - Ann
1798 - Harriet
1801 - Hannah
So this might be my Ann.  But what do you think?

Thanks for any input you have.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Tracing the FEVERS family

My great-grandmother is Charlotte Fevers who was born in Barnsley in 1831.  Her Father was Thomas Fevers (1781-1846) and her mother was Ann Scales (1791-1848).  At least this is the current information that I have.

I have no other information regarding the Fevers line.  Are there any Fevers fans out there?


Can you explain how that "Quote" button works?  If I wanted to only include a portion of a message do I just delete the rest that shows?  Or are there some other tricks?
