« on: Monday 12 October 20 20:45 BST (UK)  »
I’m looking for information on my great, great, great grandfather Joseph Gaunt, born in Staffordshire, married Susannah Long in Stretton on Fosse Warwickshire. Joseph was blind & he & Susannah & his 5 children went to Wawanosh, Huron County Canada. I’d like to be able to prove who Joseph’s parents were.

My great aunt was a foster carer in Sussex in the 1930’s. Is there any way of finding out who she actually fostered?

Cavan / Nixon family, Nixon Lodge & Nixon House in County Cavan
« on: Saturday 16 November 19 11:44 GMT (UK)  »
i am a descendant of Thomas Nixon born abt 1792 & his wife Isabella Reed born abt 1804. They lived in Tawnymakelly in County Cavan & I believe he owned land & paid tithes on it. I know that both Thomas & Isabella died in Ottawa Canada but I have no idea when they emigrated but it must have been after 1836 because he is still paying tithes in that year. I believe they lived in Nixon Lodge & I think there are ruins of it still on site. Does anyone know anything about Nixon Lodge or have any photos or drawings of how it used to look or how what’s left of it looks now?
Any information on the Nixons of that time will be gratefully received.

Now searching for Captain Edward Norris who was possibly Canadian but was in the UK in 1943. His birthday was 9th February but I don’t know what year. He gave me “Now We Are Six” by A.A. Milne on my 1st birthday. I would love to know what happened to him.

Artemisha was my great, great, great grandmother & apparently, her grandfather submitted his Georgia land petition from Augusta in April 1784. Would really like to find out more about her.
