Glamorganshire / Re: Fire Man
« on: Yesterday at 08:34 »
If you check the article at #*1 about Cefn Cribbwr Iron Works you will see reference to Cefn Cwsc Iron Works

Check it out on Welsh newspapers eg
https://newspapers.library.wales/view/3294126/3294130/22/cefn%2BOR%2Bcwsc

Where he did work can only be speculation.

Cambridgeshire Lookup Requests / Re: Find parents
« on: Wednesday 17 July 24 19:06 BST (UK)  »
His convict records state his native place as Cambridgeshire, the 1828 census gives his age as 40.

Debra  :)

So he was 40 in 1828 and not 40 in the year he arrived (1812)

At post #4 I spelled out how age had been calculated. It wasn't clear whether it applied to year of arrival. I had looked at others listed on the same page, which did point to year of arrival being the fixed point. For example, I recall children age 3 appearing in the column "Age" - which had been created 1827 or later..

Glamorganshire / Re: Fire Man

A "fireman/fire man" can be found in a range of employments - railways, ships, colliery and iron works etc..
The old map identifies the Cefn Iron works - so why plump for a colliery?. If you search Welsh newspapers you will find "Fire man/Fireman" in in various "Works" - not collieries.

What does come across in searching is just how dangerous this job could be, wherever employed.

Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Re: Audley Surname in Portsea 1856 - 1880

Elizabeth Cole married a Thomas Audley. It has been transcribed as Andely by FindMyPast - but it reads as "Audley" on the marriage cert.

Thomas Andley (quite clear on 61 Census - not to be confused with Audley) is aged 39.

So, who are you chasing - Thomas Audley age 49 at his marriage to Elizabeth Cole in 1863 or a Thomas Andley aged 39 on the '61 Census.

Her marriage cert is on FindMyPast. Couple of issues -

Status is transcribed as "spinster" - I see "widow". .
Father transcribed as "Robert Cole - laborer" - I see "Robert Atkins - laborer" (a witness is Eliza Atkins).

Her age is given as "51". Thomas is a Greenwich Pensioner.

Her death notice in The Portsmouth Times and Naval Gazette, 21 July 1866, gives her age as 47.
