Staffordshire / Mount Villa Werrington
« on: Tuesday 09 January 24 16:31 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone have any info on Mount Villa in Werrington,  Stoke on Trent , Staffordshire.  My great grandad lived there in the late 30s to 50s. I know Werrington but have never come across "Mount villa" and can't seem to find any historical references to it.

Staffordshire / Goddard Street Longton Stoke-on-Trent
« on: Tuesday 02 January 24 18:11 GMT (UK)  »
I was wondering if anyone has any old photos of Goddard Street in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent that they wouldn't mind sharing or know where I could find any. I've done the usual Google search but can only seem to find more recent ones or the odd one of a junction. I was hoping to find some of the actual houses.


Staffordshire / Mary Florence/Lockett age
« on: Sunday 31 December 23 17:13 GMT (UK)  »
I was wondering if anyone could help. I think I have found my great x4 grandmother Mary Lockett (born Mary Florence) as being the daughter of Richard and Amelia Florence born in Newport Shropshire in 1820 but on all the censuses she appears to have being born in around 1822-1825. She married John Lockett in Keele Staffordshire and lived mostly in the Newcastle-under-Lyme area.  I'm 99% sure it's the same person because everyone else in the household matches up as siblings etc. Does anyone know why there would be a difference in her stated age?

Looking for the parents of Thomas Hall born 1847 in Abbots Bromley. His daughter was Hannah Hall and she married Samuel Neild .

If anyone could shed any light on Thomas parentage that would be much appreciated.
