Sussex / Franci(e)s Shorter . Burwash area
« on: Tuesday 20 October 20 09:57 BST (UK)  »
Hello
 I am hoping someone can help me with my mystery women Franci(e)s  Shorter .
 On 7 Nov 1823 in Burwash she marries John Pennells  a agr labourer and they live in the area till at least 1871. First at Key Lands ( sorry dont know what that means) and latter  at Barn House Burwash.
But on the census returns from 1841-1871 no location is given for her place of birth.--Just not known . I have not found a death record either . After Johns  death she is working as a char women.
Her age from the census returns suggest a birth  between 1807-1811 but of course these  could be wide of the mark.
 There are a few baptisms on Ancestry  in the Burwash area but the the dates dont really tally. Also a number of trees but the majority have  her as the daughter of a Charles and Sarah Shorter --but that family appear to  be well to do farmers in the Edenbridge area although Charles family are from Burwash.

It seems strange she didnt know from were she was born --could this suggest the workhouse ?

Interested in your views and if we can find a death record. Have only found 2 sons for her shown as Thomas b 1824 and Henry  Pennells 1829. Both stay in Burwash for most of their lives. Henry dies Cranbrook .

Many thanks .

Hello
Just picked up these posts. John Joseph Victor Boyd is a very distant relation through a Latham link in Ireland  very many years ago. I am the family history nut.  Will send Rwebbie a personal message. Many thanks

London and Middlesex / William Burnett sentenced to death.
« on: Saturday 03 October 20 15:29 BST (UK)  »
 Hello
I hope someone with better eyes than me might be able to  work out what is on the Criminal Record sheet for William Burnett in 1804. Record on Ancestry. He was born 1776 in Kent but is tried in London on 11/4/1804. Sentence is death but i can read he was Pardoned but not why.
Many Thanks.

Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Jane Giles ran a Guest House on the IOW
« on: Saturday 03 October 20 14:05 BST (UK)  »
Hello
Hoping someone may be able to Help. The  family story is that  Mrs Jane Elizabeth Giles nee Baker was said to have run a guest house on the Iow after 1944 and before 1960. Born in 1889 she dies 21/6/1963 at Alver Bank Rd West London. She was widowed in 1940. We know she was living at 51 Stanmore Rd Stevenage in 1942 and at 7 Julian Rd Stevenage in 1944--both addresses taken from her will. Another address lived at was 71 Shirley Way Croydon sometime during the war with her daughter  . Sorry no clues on the IOW property.
Grateful for any information
many Thanks .
