Montgomeryshire / Which Workhouse?
« on: Wednesday 29 October 08 14:06 GMT (UK)  »
We are trying to trace if members of our family went to the workhouse due anomalies in the law. The respective members of the families concerned would have been born between the years 1885 and  1895. They were born in the Parish of Blodwel on the Shropshire, Montgomery shire border at Llanyblodwel or Porth-Waen.
It is believed they may have spent a short time in the work house between 1902 and 1906. Which would be the most likely work house for them to be sent to, we understand it being linked to the parish of birth.?
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
Very many thanks, Eric.

Shropshire / Cleobury Mortimer Parish Register 1927.
« on: Tuesday 28 October 08 12:00 GMT (UK)  »

The date of marriage and any other information would be greatfully appreciated. Very many thanks, Eric.

Gloucestershire / Charfield National School 1902 to 1905.
« on: Tuesday 28 October 08 11:35 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone please help? I believe my grand parents taught at Charfield National School , Gloucester, between September 1902 and mid 1905. The address given by my grandmother at a baptism on March 31st  1904 was Charfield National School.
It is very possible grandfather Francis John Davies was headmaster  and grandmother sewing mistress. We have been unable to locate a School Log, which would be a tremendous help, grandfather had a number of his own children there at the time.
Would there be a Poll Register or some way some one could please help on this subject.
This could at the time have been a very delicate subject, grandfathers first wife died in February 1895. Sophia Dudley was his sister in law who he could not marry until after the law changed in 1907. The school house may have been for a married teacher only which could have resulted in him having to give up his post or at worst being dismissed his post.
Any help  would be greatfully appreciated. Very many thanks, Eric

Shropshire / Archiebold Dudley Davies, born autumn 1893
« on: Friday 18 July 08 20:54 BST (UK)  »
Can any one please help me trace Archiebold Dudley Davies, baptised on January 1st 1894,, in Llanfechain, Montgomeryshire. His parents were Francis John Davies and Sarah Anncutt Dudley, school master and school mistress. [ the extent of our knowledge on him]. Did Archiebold get married? If so to whom?  and when?
We believe he may have been an engineer and maybe have worked for some time in Africa. It is possible he may have retired to St Anns on Sea, Lancs. Where there maybe a record of his death.
Any information on Archiebold Dudley Davies would be gratefully welcome. Very many thanks ,Regards, Eric.

When Registration took place on 8th March 1904 2 Oldbury Wells , Bridgnorth was shown on the Birth Cert. There is a possibility he was born in Bridgnorth Workhouse, his mother was Sophia Dudley, but no fathers name was given.
