I am trying to work out what the word just before "of this parish" for the groom in this marriage record is.

I have worked out that the image says Joseph Wade (then the word I can't read) "of this parish" widower  and Martha Grubb of this parish spinster were married in this church by banns  this twenty first day of November 1831

On almost all the other marriage records for this parish at this time there does not seem to be a word written before "of this parish" so I am wondering if this groom had a prominent role in the parish or maybe some unusual occupation.

Any help gratefully received.

Hi All,

 Reposted as originally posted on wrong board.

I am hoping to trace someone who sailed to Quebec Canada in 1950 and wondered if anyone knows of any websites that may be of help to me. I already have the deatils for him from the passenger list but am trying to progress forward from here.

Oxfordshire / Anne Wood Bapt 1814-1822 Satwell?
« on: Monday 01 June 15 12:42 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to find a baptism for Anne Wood and hopefully follow the Wood line back further but have hit a brick wall.

Anne Wood married in 1843 in Surrey and on the marriage certificate it states, full age. Her father was recorded as Richard Wood occ: Bricklayer.

In the 1851census she is recorded as being born c1821in Satwell Oxfordshire. She was recorded as being 42 years old when she was buried 1857. I have found no other sources of info for a birth date or place.

I did see a baptism on the familysearch website for an Anne Wood on 13th Sept 1818 in St James Cowley with parents Richard and Sarah Wood which seems a little distance from Satwell so thought that this might not be my Anne and I can't see any parish records for Satwell online, so if anyone can help or point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

« on: Tuesday 07 October 14 15:01 BST (UK)  »

Having moved form BT to Talk Talk (normal not fibre) my pc (windows 7) is fine but I can't get connected to the internet on my laptop (vista service pack 2). My laptop states that I am successfully connected but when I try to access the internet I get server not found, although it works fine when connected with an ethernet lead. Anyone have any suggestions on how to overcome this problem.

Percy was born in 1886 in Gravesend Kent and was the 2nd son of Alfred & Elizabeth Toms.
He was living at 13 Palace Road Crouch End North London and was working as a Clerk when he joined the Royal Fusiliers on the 29th January 1916.
He  served as a Lance Corporal with the 1st/7th Battalion Middlesex Regiment and was killed on the 16th September 1916 at the Battle of the Somme, his body was never recovered and he is remembered with honour on the Thiepval War Memorial Pier and Face 12 D and 13 B

I have found a marriage for a Mary Rosendale to Alfred Christmas on 20th November 1869 in Bassingbourn Cambridgeshire on the family search website but I need to establish who Mary's father was to enable me to follow the Rosendale line back further. Does anyone have access to the Bassingbourn parish records that may be able to help me?
