Tipperary / Anne's Mother?
« on: Thursday 18 November 10 13:54 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to help a friend discover who her 2 x g. grandmother was.  I have heard that Irish family history can be difficult but didn't realise quite how difficult! Please can someone help us?

Anne Noonan [Servant] married John Finn [Foundry Man], on 29 February 1876 at Nenagh Church, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary.  Anne's father is shown as being Jeremiah Noonan [Nailor] but the family suspect he could actually have been her step-father.  No details of her mother are given on the Civil Marriage Record.

We have a Church Baptism Record for Jeremiah Noonan, Roman Catholic, on 5 April 1835 at Nenagh, Co. Tipperary.  His parents were Maurice Noonan & Margaret Hehir.
Can anyone help by finding a baptism for Anne, probably in the 1850's, hopefully showing her mother's name, or even a marriage for Jeremiah Noonan around the same time?

What follows is from

Inquisitions & assessments relating to feudal aids, with other analogous documents preserved in the Public record office; A.D. 1284-1431

It seems to be a list of people who were tenants of land at certain times, how much land they held and who the owners of the land were.  Unfortunately, when copying text from websites such as this, it becomes distorted and you often get symbols rather than letters or numbers!  If it makes it any easier my first priority isn't how many carcurates or bovates of land they held, I'm more interested in the people! 

I'd be most grateful if someone could make some sense of it all for me please!

The Common Room / Glover's Visitation of Yorkshire
« on: Saturday 14 November 09 15:48 GMT (UK)  »
As there isn't a board for 'Yorkshire General' and my request indirectly covers the whole county, I'm putting it here!

Does anyone have a copy of "Glover's Visitation of Yorkshire" and if so would they kindly look at pages 215 and 602 please?  I understand that these pages give pedigrees of 'DEYVILL OF CUCKWOLD'  (Deyville of Coxwold) and I would dearly love a copy of them if possible, please, please, please!

The information is taken from VISITATIONS OF THE NORTH  - DAVELL.
[Ashmole MS. 834, part iii ., folio 4b . Heralds' College MS. H. 19 ,folio 15 . ] which states:

There is a pedigree of Deyville of Cuckwold by Glover which gives some additional information as to the descendants of the third George Deyvill above-named (second son of the second George Deyvill above -named . An additional pedigree from M .S . Hari ., 1571, gives the descendants of that George's elder brother John . Foster, Yorkshire Visitations, pp. 215, 602


Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Old Numbers
« on: Friday 13 November 09 12:54 GMT (UK)  »
Please can someone help me with an old numbering system, presumably Roman but including letters I haven't come across before, like 'j'and 's'.  I keep coming across what are obviously numbers in various documents, i.e. wills, visitations, etc., such as 'ijd','ij'.  Sometimes it is clearly an amount of money, sometimes the number of children in a family.  This website:  illustrates the problem.  Does anyone know of a chart to help work out which numbers the letters represent?

Many Thanks.


Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help with Latin please

What follows is from a Google Book excerpt and I'd be most grateful if anyone could translate the latin part for me please:



In Dei nomine, Amen.  Tercio die mensis Januarii, A.D. Millesimo cccc.lj.  Ego Johannes Maleverer,* compos mentis-Lego corpus meum Sepeliendum in ecclesia Sancti Francisci.  Lego vjlb. ceræ ad comburendum circa corpus meum in die sepulturæ meæ.  Presbiteris et clericis existentibus ad exequias meas pro anima mea.  Fratribus Minoribus Doncastriæ ubi corpus meum erit sepultum vj marcas.  Fratribus Carmelitis Doncastre’ vj s. viij d.  Fabricæeccles. B. Petri Ebor. vj s. viij d.  Ricardo Rawlyn capellano ad celebrandum pro anima mea per tres annos xxj. marcas.  Item volo quod dictus Ricardus habeat in custodia sua calicem meum deauratum, dum celebret pro anima mea, et deinde remaneat Aluredo** filio meo apud Cusseworth.  Lego Edmundo Dayvell *** pece argenti cum coopertorio.  Willelmo Mawleverer j. pece argenti.  Alueredo Mawleverer j. pece argenti, j. hallyng pantyd, j. contyngburde, pewdyr wessell.  Isabellæ Dayvell unum equum nigrum, Edmundo Dayvell unam togam optimam penulatam, Laurentio Holyngworth unam togam penulatam et unum equum.  Residuum distribuendum inter filios juniores et Edmundus Dayvell, Isabella uxor ejus et Ric. Rawlyn executores mei, et quiscunque contradixerit voluntati meæ anathema sit.  [Prob. 8 May 1451]

*   The testator, a scion in all probability of the great family of Mauleverer, was connected with one of its flourishing branches, which was settled at Letwell.  In the year 1403 John Mauleverer (the father of the testator?) and Joan his wife obtain the manor of Cusworth from Richard Leeds.  This manor was now in his possession, and descended to Alured, his son.  Cusworth passed from the Mauleverers in the reign of Edward V.

**   Alured Mauleverer, the testator’s son, to whom the manor of Cusworth descended, died in 1455.  On the 5th July in that year, the administration to the effects of Alured Malyverer, of Cusworth, was granted to Walter Calverley, of Calverley, Esq.

*** The family of Davell, or D’Eyvile, was for a long time in possession of the manor of Warmesworth.  On the 7th November, 1466, Sir Edmund Mountford, rector of Warmesworth, administers to the effects of Edmund Davell of Warmesworth, gen.  Mountford was presented to the rectory in 1432, by Thomas D’Eyville, the patron of the living; and he held it until his death in 1471.  There was a family of Davell at Bilton, and another at Coxswold, in this century.  From the latter descended the Davells, of Kirkby Fletham, in Richmondshire.

Many thanks.

Please can anyone translate this for me.   I think I can get the general gist of it but I'm not confident enough to go with my guesses!


Many thanks.

Derbyshire Lookup Requests / Marriage Look-Up - Little Hallam area
« on: Sunday 24 February 08 17:20 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All,

I am trying to find a marriage, possibly in Little Hallam or somewhere close by, of an unknown Frances to an unknown DABELL (possibly George) of Nottingham.  Frances was born in Little Hallam and the couple had four known daughters;  Martha abt. 1829, Lydia abt. 1831, Ann abt. 1833 and Elizabeth abt. 1837, all born in Little Hallam.

Widow Frances and the girls appear on the 1841 and 1851 censuses and I know her husband must have been a DABELL because other family members were with them.

To anyone kind enough to search for me, please bear in mind that there are numerous spelling variants for the name DABELL, i.e. DEABELL, DEABILL, DABLE, DAYBELL, DAVILL, DEAVILL, and many more!

Many thanks.
