This comes from a marriage certificate and I just can't seem to figure out what it says. I have attached the image.

Canada Lookup Request / Beneficiaries of a Will who may be or have been in Winnipeg
« on: Monday 18 January 21 01:35 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I was hoping someone might be able to help me. I am trying to locate the beneficiaries of a Will of a former Canadian Mounted Police officer who died in New Zealand (which is where I am). He made bequests to two women in Winnipeg, who are mostly probably deceased themselves. These women are Annie Helen Dobson, nee Jacobsen, b 1930 in Denmark. Was last heard of in Canada in 1970 after she divorced her husband (Alex Dobson) and may have gone back to the name Jacobsen. The other is June Maxworthy, who I know nothing more about. I would like to locate the descendants of these two ladies, but first I need to find where they have ended up. Any help would be really, really appreciated as I don't have a lot of experience with researching in Canada.

Antrim / Descendants of James Higginson and Evelyn Ussher of Belfast
« on: Monday 28 September 20 03:59 BST (UK)  »

I am trying to find out anything I can about this couple who were living in Sydney Street West Belfast in 1942. They had at least one son John born in 1942 who emigrated to New Zealand and died recently. I am in New Zealand also and am struggling to locate much about this family in the usual places. I cannot find any records of their deaths. Ideally, I would really like to find out if John had any siblings and whether any of them are alive and I would also like to find birth records for James and Evelyn. If anyone could offer me any help or advice I would be really grateful.



I was hoping someone could do me a small favour and look these two chimney sweeps up on the 1841 and possibly 1851 census reports.

I have these guys in some evidence to a Government committee in 1834 and I'm hoping they lived until at least 1841.

The first is John Ross, who was living in Queen Street, Greenwich in 1834. He said he was 34 so was probably born around 1800.

The other is John Richardson, he was living in Church Street, Greenwich but I'm not sure at what time this was and it is entirely possible that he was not living there in 1841. He was much older, but was definitely still alive in 1834.

I am interested in any information about them - particularly any reference to where Richardson was born. My GGGG grandfather Thomas Tyler b. 1800, d. 1835, was bound to Richardson as a climbing boy as a small child, but I have no idea of any of his history prior to that so at this point cannot take the family history any further back than him. Ross was Thomas's friend and fellow apprentice.

Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.


Kent / Workhouse Margate and census questions
« on: Friday 17 February 12 00:37 GMT (UK)  »

I have found some records in Ancestry poor laws section and the Census records that has left me with some questions.

The entry is in the Greenwich Union Workhouse School dated March 3 1865.

Henry Tyler, 12
Samuel Tyler, 10
Frederick Tyler, 7

All were in the school as their father John Tyler, chimney sweep, was in the workhouse.

The entry for Samuel says June 1, 1866 sent to Margate.
I have found a death record for him on Family Search saying he died 3 May 1867 and is buried at St John The Baptist Margate.

Does anyone know why a child would be sent to Margate from Greenwich? Was Margate a place where kids with illnesses was sent because it was by the sea?

Frederick and Henry seem to have survived the experience as I think I have found them and their mother Ann in 1871 census records. (I am guessing their father John died before then as she seems to be living with another man - also oddly named Tyler at 12 Bright Street in Bromley St Leonard). I can't find a death record for him.

Here's 1861
Collins Street, Deptford
J Tyler, head, mar, 63, chimney sweep, b Greenwich, Kent
Ann, wife, 38, Deptford
John, son, unmarried, 15?, sweep, Deptford
Caroline, dau, 10?, Deptford, Blind from birth
William, son, 12?, sweep, Deptford,
Henry, son, 7, scholar, Deptford
Samuel, son, 5, scholar, Deptford
Frederick, son, 3, scholar, Deptford

Thomas Tyler, head, Mar, 43, boilermaker, b Swindon
Ann Tyler, wife, 49, b Deptford Kent
Catherine, dau, unmarrried, 20, charwoman, Deptford, partially blind from small pox
Henry, son, unmarried, 18, labourer, Deptford
Frederick, son, unmarried, 12, scholar
George, son, unmarried, 27, boilermaker

I don't know what happened to the family after that except for John and Frederick (see below)
Can anyone with better skills than me find the others?

18? Campbell Rd, Bromley
John Tyler, head, mar, 28, sweep, Deptford
Sophia, wife, mar, 26, Deptford
Sophia, dau, 1 Bromley Bow? Middlesex

1881 (4 Summerfield St, Lee)

John, 6, Bromley, Kent
Edward, 4, Bromley, Kent
Alice, 4, Bromley, Kent
Ada, 2, Bromley, Kent
Bettie, 1, Bromley Kent,

And Frederick 1881
Living with his wife Susan in Mansell St, Aldgate

Frederick, head, 25, chimney sweep , Deptford
Susan, wife, 23, Bow, Mdsx
Eliza, dau, 3, Bromley, mdsx

London and Middlesex / Are Greenwich Pensioner Records online?
« on: Tuesday 14 February 12 23:22 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for info about my gggg grandfather Anthony White. I know little about him other than his daughter Ann (or Hannah) described him as a "pensioner at Greenwich Hospital" on her marriage certificate to James Ryant in 1852. She was born in Lambeth Surrey in abt 1806, so presumably Anthony lived there then.

Can anyone tell me if the Greenwich Pensioner records are online anywhere. I have seen the pamphlets in the National Archives, but I am in New Zealand so cannot visit to search for myself.

Any suggestions are appreciated.


Sussex / Terrill: a military puzzle I can't answer alone
« on: Tuesday 21 December 10 06:08 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All,

I am hoping someone may have a better knowledge of English military history than I do.

I am trying to track what happened to my GGGG Grandfather Collin Terrill. I am not sure where he was born, but I have a marriage record for him on 25 Feb 1770 when he married Ann Clark at St Michaels in Lewes. I next find him (named as Colin Tarrell) when his son, also Colin, was born in Ipswich, Suffolk and christened on 4 Mar 1771.

I have found an affidavit from his wife dated 1825 taken in Cranbrook, Kent, in which she states that she was born in Lewes, St John. She was a servant to the late Henry Verrall for three years. While there she married Collin Terrill, a soldier quartered there. He went to America, where she beleived he died. She married again in Bloomsbury London, St George to Thomas Bailey a tailor who lived near Tottemham Court Road. She separate from him about 20 years ago (which would make that around 1805).

I have found her marriage certificate to Thomas Bailey, which was dated 1785. (Her son Collin's marriage certificate to Sarah West in Cranbrook 1792 shows Thomas Bailey as a witness).

However, I have no idea what happened to Colin senior. Does anyone know if there were army bases in Lewes and in Ipswich at that time? Is there anywhere that records the names of the English soldiers who went to the US to fight in the War of Independence in 1776? Or the names of those killed? I have been searching for a few months now and frankly I feel like I am going around in circles!! Any help anyone could give me would be really really appreciated  :)

Thanks in anticipation

Also one contains a note in brackets under the last name which looks a little like (prio) not in caps, does anyone have any idea what this could be about. ???

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / John Tyler and his family , where did they go?
« on: Wednesday 20 January 10 05:23 GMT (UK)  »

I was hoping someone might be able to help me find the family of John and Ann (or Harriet) Tyler. I have found them in Deptford in the 1841 census living in Giffin Street, but I can't find any trace of them after the birth of their last child in 1848. I am also hoping to find a marriage record for John and Ann or Harriett (I am guessing her name is Ann Harriett or Harriett Ann) Can anyone help me?

Name   Age/Sex   Profession   Born in county
John Tyler   m/45   Chimney sweep   no
Ann Tyler   f/26      yes
Ann Tyler   f/3      yes
Henry Tyler   15 months      yes
Thomas Tyler   14   Apprentice sweep   yes
Henry Tyler   11   Apprentice sweep   yes

I beleive that Thomas and Henry are nephews so may not be with the family at later dates.

Records at St Pauls in Deptford show the Christenings of:
Henry James, son of John and Harriett, Giffin St, c 16 Feb 1840
William Thomas, son of John and Ann, Giffin St, b 27 Aug 1841, c 10 Oct 1841
John Edward, son of John and Harriet, Church St, c 23 Jul 1843
Caroline, dau of John and Harriet, Church St, b 21 Jan 1846, c 15 Feb 1846
Thomas Edward, son of John and Ann, Church Street, b 27 Dec 1847, c 6 Mar 1848

Any help anyone could give me on this would be really appreciated
