On the tracer card there is an entry which looks like X hiot (11): India.  Do you have any idea what this may mean?

Lancashire / Henry Parr 1724
« on: Tuesday 25 August 20 14:40 BST (UK)  »
I have the Baptism: 20 Sep 1724 Parish Church, Newchurch in Culcheth, Lancashire, England for Henry Parr with his father stated as Henry.  I have been unable to find a definite tie but provisionally I think his father is Henry Parr born circa 1678 in Cadishead being married to Ann Salesbury (Ancestry Family Trees).  They all suggest Henry senior's father is Thomas Parr born about 1650 in Worsley but I have been unable to substantiate this as I can't find any evidence linking the three other than those on Ancestry which do not have any sources.  Can anyone help me with this dilemma?

Lancashire / Re: Emma and John William Hendley circa 1862
« on: Wednesday 19 August 20 16:29 BST (UK)  »
The 1841 census has  Rebecca married to William Price, one of their children being Sarah Price.
The 1851 census has Rebecca Price a widow and Sarah Price her daughter is living with her.
The 1861 census has Rebecca Price a widow living with her daughter Sarah Price and a lodger John Lines.
he 1871 has own Ines and Rebecca Now given as Head and Wife now living with her daughter Sarah Whippy (nee Price which ties in with the birth registration as mmm) and her husband or partner William Whippey.  I cannot find a marriage for John Lines and Rebecca Price or for William Whippey and Sarah so while things are clearer there are still some key data missing.

That is great but I can't find any evidence of a marriage between either Emma Hunt, Ward or Wippey to Hendley or Handley and that is my frustration.

Lancashire / Emma and John William Hendley circa 1862
« on: Wednesday 19 August 20 14:06 BST (UK)  »
I am at a loss to know which forum to post this question so I am starting with Emma.  The 1911 census has Emma Hendley born circa 1862 in Ince, Lancashire - married.  Her husband is given as John William Hendley born circa 1863 in Staffordshire.  The 1901 census has Emma birthplace Wigan, Lancashire, England and William Handley birthplace Oldbury Staffordshire and shows their first son William born circa 1884 in Killamarsh Derbyshire.  I have checked the births of all their children and they all have the mothers maiden name given as Whippey.  I have tried to find the birth of Emma and her marriage either to John William Hendley or Handley or just William with her surname as Whippey with no success.  I am now at a loss so if anyone can give me a glimmer of hope I will be very happy.

Suffolk / Re: James Grimwood 1781
« on: Friday 07 August 20 08:29 BST (UK)  »
I must have something wrong as the marriage of Francis and Mary is Francis Greenwood and not Grimwood.  I can't find any reference to James being born in Cavendish but there is one for James being christened in Ipswich on 5 October 1777 to Richard and Martha (familysearch).
