Kent / Access to newspapers
« on: Wednesday 13 October 21 16:55 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,
Has anyone access to Sevenoaks newspapers please? I'm looking for information on Josiah Allen a fly carriage driver who died 4th Q 1870 age 34. He lived in Westerham (New Street) with wife Fanny & his family. I have record of an insurance payment dated Nov. 25th 1870 so the accident would be before this.
I just wondered if there was any information giving details of what happened.

Thank you

Sussex / Allen 1841 please
« on: Wednesday 26 May 21 09:30 BST (UK)  »
Good morning all,
Having been working backwards in 1851 I have Josias Allen \(Lossie Allen) also (Louis)/ both wrong age 15 with sister Ann age 22  - Schedule 117, piece 1636, folio 320 pg 5.
1841, I have piece 1105, book 8, pg,20 Head of house Walter Allin (Walter Allen) but I can't find Jossias anywhere he would be about 5 so should be on a census somewhere. Ann is there which is only a guess it's the same Ann. I've tried just putting in Allen but can still not find him.
I've tried Familysearch, & FreeBMD but these Allens are hard to find.

Sorry to leave this with you but I've got to go to work now, back later. Thank you

The Address, (First column) & I think the occupation is farmer.
Walter B abt. 1801.

World War One / Is this him? Lionel Albert Archer
« on: Tuesday 14 July 20 14:17 BST (UK)  »
I have been looking for years but keep coming to the same answer so is this my granddad?
Lionel Albert Archer b 1896 Tring Hertfordshire
Private WO329 Reg No. 55137
Manchester Regiment.
That's the bit confusing me, Manchester Regiment. He came from Hertfordshire I have a photo of him & his cap badge is clearly visible, two stripes on his sleeve which I believe (could be wrong) that he was injured twice.
Any info would be much appreciated.
Thank you

World War One / New Zealand Army
« on: Wednesday 08 July 20 09:29 BST (UK)  »
Good morning all,

Don't know if I'm on the right page for this but can anyone fill in the gaps?

Herbert Roy Hunt b 1897  2/3017  (known as Roy)
Embarkation 1916 A-Howitzer Battery Ammunition Column (Egypt)
Occupation signwriter.
Wounded on 15/6/18  casualty list no. 881/2

My question is, where was he wounded (country).?
I know of a convalescent hospital at Grey Friars Hornchurch, where there was a NZ base/barracks as well could he have been sent there?

The reason I think he was at Hornchurch is that my aunt, who lived in Hornchurch married him in 1920.

Thanks all

Australia / claim records
« on: Thursday 25 June 20 16:31 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,
There's a family story & I would like to find out if it's true.
James Hatch went to Australia to seek his fortune, there is a 'Hatches Creek' near Alice springs still on the map. We were always told it's near Alice Springs so maybe!

Are there records of claims or stakes or who named a creek? I have not been able to find him on any ships lists.

If he was in Australia afterwards went on to New Zealand & I have him in NZ where he married in 1868.
James Hatch born 1833, Middlesex London, I have him on the 1851 census in London.
Sorry to be a bit vague but as I said it's a story with not a lot to go on.
Thank you
