Monmouthshire / Trinant BMD's
« on: Sunday 25 February 18 17:15 GMT (UK)  »
Hello all

Not sure if I've asked this before, so apologies in advance

Why were Trinant BMD's from the 40's thru 60's registered as Caerleon, which is 16+ miles away whereas Pontypool is only 6+ miles away?

Anyone with any idea? It's very confusing for researchers if they don't know the areas

Wiltshire Lookup Requests / William Truman/Trueman
« on: Wednesday 14 February 18 13:36 GMT (UK)  »
Hi everyone

Iím looking for the death/burial of my 4xggf, William Truman (b All Cannings c1769) who married Phebe Smart in Melksham

His daughter Sarah, my 3xggm was born c1801and Phebe remarried to John Sta(u)nton in 1806 (Melksham) so Iím assuming Williamís demise occurred between 1800-1806

Thank you

Monmouthshire / "The Grove", Malpas, Newport
« on: Thursday 01 February 18 15:16 GMT (UK)  »
In the 1911 Census, members of my extended family lived in a 21-roomed house called "The Grove" at Malpas, Newport

I'm fairly familiar with Newport but have no idea where this house was or if it still exists

My family were still there in 1922

Anyone with knowledge of this property?

Thank you

Herefordshire / Sophia Thomas b Stoke Lacy?
« on: Wednesday 31 January 18 09:28 GMT (UK)  »

Does anyone know of any baptism records for Stoke Lacy from the 1810s-1820s or would baptisms have occurred elsewhere?

Cannot seem to find anything on any sites - my 3 x ggm, SOPHIA THOMAS was born in Stoke Lacy c1820, the daughter of John Thomas, farmer - I believe that she may have had a brother George

And that's as far as I can get

She married my 3 x ggf, WALTER PRICE in Llanelly, Brecs in 1847

Any advice would be much appreciated


The Common Room / Remarrying after desertion in the late 19th C
« on: Monday 26 June 17 22:14 BST (UK)  »
Hi all

My 1st cousin, three times removed was deserted by her husband in 1879

He went to Pennsylvania where he remarried, possibly before a child was born in 1884

My cousin remarried in 1897

Does anyone know the rules for remarrying after desertion in both the US and UK?

Were there such rules?

Many thanks in advance

Monmouthshire / Danks Row, Aberystruth
« on: Wednesday 22 March 17 00:07 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all

I am researching for someone in Maryland and the family are living at Danks Row, Aberystruth in the 1841 Census (Hitchins)

I am assuming that it was in Nantyglo but cannot find a suitable map to pinpoint where it was

Does anyone know?

Thank you

Staffordshire / Etruria - living conditions
« on: Friday 06 January 17 21:59 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all

My 2x great grandparents buried three children aged 8, 3 and 1 in under three weeks in Feb/Mar 1866, all burials taking place at St. Matthews, Etruria - cause of death for all three was diphtheria

I know very little of the area and I'm wondering what living conditions were like in this place at this time

Armed Forces / Alfred Walters
« on: Thursday 03 March 16 11:17 GMT (UK)  »

After quite some time I've managed to find my great-great uncle ALFRED WALTERS (sometimes Waters) in the 1901 Census with the occupation listed as "in the 41st Regiment"

I can find no trace of him on the 1911 or the 1939 Register and cannot find a suitable death for him

His birth was registered in the first quarter of 1875 in Pontypool and is listed as being born in Abersychan, Monmouthshire

I believe that the 41st Regiment was amalgamated into the Welsh Regiment before the 1901 Census

Where would be the best place to find info about him, if there is information available about this regiment?

Thank you
