Antrim / John James Belfast marriage
« on: Tuesday 06 August 19 13:25 BST (UK)  »
John James 1779-1875 married a Catherine who was born in Belfast.
He was in the 50th regiment of Foot, they were posted to Ireland May 1802 and their first child, that I'm aware of, was born in 1810 in Welshpool, Montgomeryshire.

Therefore I assume that they were married between 1802 & 1810

I haven't been able to find any records online and am hoping that someone can help me out.

Northumberland / Adam Winter marriage SOLVED with great thanks
« on: Saturday 27 October 18 16:34 BST (UK)  »
Adam & Alison Winter had three children baptised in Berwick Upon Tweed between 1787-1794 at the Golden Square Presbyterian.

However I'm unable to find a marriage, I've tried Scotland as well.

Adam was a shoemaker and had a couple of apprentices and what may be his birth in Berwick, so I would expect their marriage to be there as well.
Any ideas?


Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / 17th C deed of sale, more queries
« on: Friday 17 August 18 15:28 BST (UK)  »
I'm still plodding through this document & have come across a couple more words that I can't make sense of.

The first I believe is "courflages" which when I google it only produces a couple of other old docs, but no meaning. It appears to be describing a building or area of land, as the rest of the list is barns, stables, gardens & plots of land.

The second i think is "escripts", which i also can't find, but the second word looks to me like "minuments" I assume that this is some sort of charge against land as it's part of a list viz: fines, recoveries, counterparts of leases.

I'd be very grateful for any assistance, thanks in advance.

This is an Indenture relating to the sale of Modbury House in Devon in 1698 from Sarh Champernowne to Henry Legassicke. I'm attempting to decipher this (out of interest, no relation) and I'm getting there, despite the squirly writing & legalese  :) However there's, what appears to be, a vital word that I can't decipher & I'm hoping someone here can help. I've attached a segment of the document & a couple of shots of the offending word, or possibly words, i'm not even sure of that as it may be these something.
Thanks in advance for any help

Essex / Thomas OUNKLE absent father
« on: Wednesday 20 June 18 16:22 BST (UK)  »
I'm hoping that someone else has come across this name in Manuden

William DELLOW bap. 31/5/1767 mother Mary DELLOW father Thomas OUNKLE

There's another baptism
Daniel OUNKLE bap. 8/5/1767 mother Mercy WHITE father Thomas OUNKLE

I can find no further records for the Ounkle name. I would have thought that there should be some parish records relating to bastardy charges against Thomas.
Does anyone have access to these sort of records for Manuden?

I assume it's quite likely that the name is a mistranscription, but I can't think of what???

Thanks in advance for any assistance

I've managed to find a marriage on scotlands people, but I have a problem. The place is just given as St Andrews and there seem to be a few in Scotland  ???
There's a number reference 025/10 which may mean something.
Does anyone know or will SP be able to tell me?

This record is from Wick.
I've worked out that the first place name is Killimster, but I can't get the second Wetherilad, Wetherclad? I'm hoping that someone from the area will have an idea. Thanks Jacqui

I've managed to read nearly all of this will, apart from the name of Sir B.G. I'm hoping someone else may have an idea. Thanks for any help

I can't seem to insert the image, so I've attached it instead
