Lincolnshire / Coningsby Baptist MI's ....
« on: Sunday 10 June 18 08:45 BST (UK)  »
Please could someone tell me if Coningsby Baptist MI's have been recorded in the past?

I thought id seen it mentioned in LFHS publication lists but cannot find it.
I am currently transcribing registers and graveyard plans which are still with the chapel (im a member of both chapel & LFHS) before encouraging them to deposit with Archives.

Any help with previous recording of churchyard gratefully received, especially as we have a funeral on Friday 15th and trying to clarify some blank plots as well as make a comprehensible index and plan!
Many thanks.

Cambridgeshire / PEACOCK / BROWN - Elsworth & Eltisley
« on: Monday 29 January 18 12:40 GMT (UK)  »
I have 4 pages copied from a family bible / family register with a long list of PEACOCK names from 1805 through to early 1900s from the villages of Eltisley & Elsworth . They also contain surnames of BROWN, HATTON, HALL, COSENT & PAYNE.

I was helping an old friend some years ago but who has since died, so i dont know if the bible is still in her family. As I have no personal use of the list I thought it best to make it available for anyone with connections.  If anyone would like to pass on the copies to Cambs FHS thats fine! 

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Trinity Church Dewsbury & HUGGINS
« on: Saturday 14 October 17 20:12 BST (UK)  »
Many thanks to people who replied to another thread on HUGGINS family. 

I now have a marriage certificate at Trinity Church on Dec 25, 1875 for Charles HUGGINS & Mary Elizabeth BROOKE.
However its says married according to the rites of the Independents, not CofE. so I googled Trinity it came up with Holy Trinity, presumably an anglican church. So who was Trinity, or are they the same? And why Independents?

Will be grateful for info on the church and where it is/was !

Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / HUGGINS burial 1878 Dewsbury
« on: Tuesday 03 October 17 20:31 BST (UK)  »
Please can anyone help find the burial of Elizabeth Eliza HUGGINS, died Dewsbury 5 January 1878 age 23 at Webster Street, with her brother Charles present. Their father was also Charles.

Also any 1871 or 1881 census for the street if any other HUGGINS family there.
Elizabeth & Charles were both present at home in Coningsby, Lincolnshire at those times, but we have no clue why she was in Dewsbury, though she had had two illegitemate daughters in 1872 and '74, so possibly sent away.
I gather that Webster St was in a slum area.
any background info on Dewsbury and area appreciated. 

Radnorshire / GLASBURY burial 1882
« on: Friday 15 September 17 16:22 BST (UK)  »
Seeking the burial whereabouts of Ellen GRIFFITH, died 5th September 1882 in Glasbury. 
She was married to Rev William GRIFFITH, vicar at Llandewi Fach.
In 1881 census he was a visitor to Rev Thomas Williams at , "Sunny Bank" Llowes.  Who was vicar at Glasbury at this time? 

Some years ago I visited Glasbury church but no clue if she was buried there. 
Are there any MIs or burial registers for Glasbury, or maybe she was buried elsewhere?

Any help appreciated!  Thanks

Yorkshire (West Riding) / HUGGINS, Dewsbury or other areas nearby

Looking for any HUGGINS families who may have had connections to Lincolnshire, late 1800s.
Elizabeth Eliza HUGGINS died in Dewsbury 1878, age 23  or so.   She was born in Coningsby area (if the same person)  1854 and had 2 illegitimate girls 1872 and 1874, both born Boston in the workhouse and baptised both there and at St Botolph Church, (Boston Stump). Both daughters Rebecca and Eliza were raised by relatives in Coningsby and Boston, but Elizabeth disappears and I was not able to find any marriage or in census, so it seems very likely she could be this one in Dewsbury,  As there are Huggins families in WY I have wondered if she may have gone to live with them, or possibly just gone into domestic service. I havent as yet ordered her death certificate so that is the next step. 
Unfortunately there is also a gap in the Boston workhouse admission and discharge registers for the 1870s.
She came from large families, both parents and grandparents, but then that is usual for those times!
Any clues or connections welcome!!

The Common Room / What is an Assignment listed in London Gazette?
« on: Sunday 29 January 17 21:16 GMT (UK)  »
I have just found an Assignment from the Lon Gazette, but listed in Birmingham Gazette; however what is it exactly?  I guess something to do with bankruptcy or debts.   It is only a list of names and includes a John Walkerley,  Fulstow, Lincs, farmer & shopkeeper. 
Many thanks for info on what it means.

The Common Room / A 17thC Inventory.....
« on: Monday 08 August 16 20:20 BST (UK)  »
I have found a copy of a 17thC inventory for an ancestor who is on a chart as having died 1677, but the inventory date looks like "in the twentyninth year of the reign of Charles Second.  " which would make it 1689!     see attachment.
This would put it 12 years after his death, if that is correct -which seems a long time after either the 1677 is wrong or my deciphering is wrong!  I still have to try and find the death in parish registers.
Surely an inventory wouldnt be dated that long after the death?

Can anyone shed light on when inventories were taken after death!

The Common Room / How to record a person as a churchwarden.....
« on: Thursday 04 August 16 19:34 BST (UK)  »
An answer to this question is probably down to personal opinion.....I have some people who were churchwardens but im not sure where to include this info in my genealogy program (RM6) .....Occupation, Religion or otherwise  or just record it as a note for the person.   I could enter it in Rootsmagic 6 as a "Fact" and add the year(s).   It was more a position in the church than an occupation, but its a valuable piece of their life story as they are named in the parish registers under certain years.   

What would you do?! 
any suggestions?!
