Yorkshire (West Riding) / Susan Walker Ibbertson who is she?
« on: Tuesday 21 April 20 15:03 BST (UK)  »
Hi,

Wondering if anyone can help me with Susan Walker Ibbertson born around 1839 at Misterton, Notts. Well that is according to the 1861 census when she is described as daughter to George & Mary Ibbertson, living in Brightside Brierlow, Sheffield. Problem is she does not appear with them before this date on the 1841 & 1851 census (they are living in Sheffield on both census and on subsequent census), and have not found out what happened to her after 1861. As far as I know George & Mary married at Wakefield, Mary from Altoff, probably baptised Normanton (Altofts is not far from Wakefield), George being from Dalton near Rotherham (probably baptised Thrybergh) and their children that I have found are baptised at Hooten Roberts, which all seems to fit quite nicely with no mention of Misterton.

Not sure were the Walker name comes from as as I believe George ibbertson married Mary Thorpe

There is a possible Susanna Walker born 1838 at Misterton, dau of Charles and Mary (probably nee Veasey) Walker. Wondering if this could be the mysterious Susan in 1861 and she is just recorded wrongly as daughter of George and Mary, or is there something obvious I have missed?

Many thanks for any help

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / York Foresters Friendly society records
« on: Friday 07 February 20 14:28 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,

Have recently come across a newspaper report for a relative of mine:

Foresters funeral in York, upwards of 200 members of court 'Old Ebor' No 500 of Ancient order of Foresters attended the funeral of Charles Turner of Dale Street. (there's a little more in the report in York Gazette 21/5/1859)

Just wondered if any records exist and if so where they are. Would be nice to see if there's anymore information about Charles Turner in the records, I have quite a bit of information on Charles' life already, just wondered if there was a little more available.

Many thanks for any help

Warwickshire / Looking for a Birmingham burial in 1861
« on: Tuesday 14 January 20 16:41 GMT (UK)  »
Hello,

I am trying to tidy up a loose end and find a burial record for Elizabeth Allen age 42 (age taken from GRO site) likely the first quarter of 1861. The age would fit in well with other information I have. Likely will be purchasing her death certificate, but would like to find a burial record for her.

I have her husband a widower on the 1861 census living Gooch Street, Birmingham in the Ecclesiastical district of St Lukes and I know he remarries in 1863, his second bride also a widower whose first marriage may have been to a relative of Josephs (still researching this possible connection).

Any help with locating the burial is much appreciated.
Many thanks
Kev.

England / John Waite City of York Apprentice record help with latin
« on: Friday 12 April 19 14:59 BST (UK)  »
Hi,

My Latin is pretty much non existent and would be most grateful if anyone could give me a clue as to what the apprenticeship record actually says please.

As far as I can tell it is Johis Wayte son of Johis Wayte of Wigginton?
From that point I am struggling, although could have guesses for other bits.

Many thanks for any help

Staffordshire / William Green buried 1775 Alstonefield.
« on: Wednesday 28 November 18 15:51 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,

I am trying to find a first marriage (and subsequent death of her first husband) for Sarah Green who married Humphrey Ratcliffe in 1777 at All Saints, Grindon. Sarah was described as a widow, Humphrey a taylor.

A marriage that looks promising is for a William Green marrying Sarah Hulme at St John the baptist, Mayfield. William a Taylor from the parish of Alstonefield.

Hence i am looking for a burial in the Alstonefield area between 1774 & 1777. A possibility is in 1775, but looking at the listing it is for two William Green's both buried on the same day 17/4/1775 at Alstonefield, one from Warslow and the other from Shayfield (or at least that's what it looks like to me), Can anyone suggest if there is any further way I can find out any further information about this double burial- I know it could be a longshot but an MI? and where is Shayfield?

Many thanks for any help

World War One / George Sharp Allen Northumberland Fusiliers
« on: Thursday 08 November 18 15:01 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,

I am researching my great uncle George Sharp Allen of the 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers and noticed he was awarded the Military Medal, Ancestry records indicate he was mentioned in despatches. Is there any records I could look at that may indicate why he was awarded the medal. Would it be mentioned in the war diaries for the regiment? if so is there anyway of finding the date of the mention (would save a lot of time as as far as I can see the diary runs for approx 700 pages) or is there any other possible record sources?

I know he died on 14/7/1916 and is buried at Departement de la Somme.

Many thanks
Kev.

Hi,

I'm hoping someone will be able to translate a latin baptism record for me please.

It's on Findmypast Yorkshire parish registers images for a Willmus 'Kyrk or Ward' (listed as the 2 names) in 1607 at Helmsley Yorkshire (North Riding).

From the information I can work out i'm pretty sure Willmus Kyrk is an illegitimate child and probably the son of Johis Ward - but I'm struggling to understand all that is recorded.

Many thanks for any help

Europe / St Petersburg death 1866
« on: Wednesday 18 July 18 17:12 BST (UK)  »
Hi,
Probably a bit of a long shot but....

From newspaper reports & local Hull archive records I have found that my 4x Great Grandfather William Greensides died of Cholera on board the ship The Sultana in August 1866, which was heading for St Petersburg. From the newspaper reports he died in the hospital at Constadt or Cronstadt (which I presume to be Kronshtadt  St Petersburg). I am wondering if there are likely to be any local records available there, burial/grave etc.

As I appreciate it's likely to be a  longshot, but I wouldn't know where to start searching.

Many thanks for any help

Australia / Bulmers arrived on The Douglas 1850
« on: Wednesday 20 June 18 16:31 BST (UK)  »
Hi,

Hopefully posted in the right forum this time.

Just found out that my relative Mary Bulmer and daughter Rachel arrived on The Douglas on 11/1/1850 - having lost husband John and daughter Jane Ann on route (both appeared to have died of cholera - taken from a letter Mary wrote to her father Robert Wise - published in the Hull Advertiser & Exchange Gazette).

What I would like to know is, are there lists for passenger departures for 1850-1851, as I believe Mary and Rachel were back in the UK by 1851 - as they appear on the 1851 census together taken in March 1851. From the letter published it indicated that she was not wanting to stay in Australia.

Many thanks for any help
Kev.
