Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Parish Records for St Maurice Winchester
« on: Thursday 23 September 21 13:08 BST (UK)  »
Hi

I thought I would just ask if anyone knows where I can access the parish records for St Maurice Winchester. I have two marriages I would like to see the full entry for, one 1856 and one 1858.
Neither Ancestry or FindMyPast have them, and they seem to exist because Family Search references them though I can't see the image and the transcription is not complete.
Any help before i have to buy certificates would be greatly appreciated.
1. marriage 23 Dec 1856 Peter Head / Elizabeth and Fisher
2. marriage 14 Dec 1858 Robert William Head / Mary Ann Pearce

From Probatesearch, cost is 1.50 per will.

...and the turn around at the moment is only a few days. A really great cheap service compared to hose it was a while back costing 10.

Dublin / Birth Certificate
« on: Thursday 17 June 21 15:13 BST (UK)  »
Hi
I was after a bit of advice. I have been looking for a birth of Elizabeth Josephine Browne from the Dublin area in c1920. Ancestry only has one born in 1918......
Elizabeth Josephine Browne
Date of Registration:   Jul-Aug-Sep 1918
Registration District:   Dublin South
Birth Country:   Ireland
Volume:   2
Page:   528

However when I have looked on the Ireland GRO site or equivalent, I cannot find a corresponding birth in order to buy a birth certificate.  Can anyone suggest where I may be going wrong. While I am well versed in genealogy, I have not previously applied in Ireland for certificates. Any signposting would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Neil

Thanks Bookbox thats great.  I'm not currently on FindMyPast (I was on both but had to cut down at lockdown) where these records are accessible so may have to get a visit to Kew in soon or get a month of FindMyPast.
THats great to know though and really does confirm and finish the story, thank you.

Thanks everyone for all your help.
Thanks Debra for finding that. He hadn't appeared in any searches and todays job was the old fashioned manual way, so thanks for saving that one!!

As an interesting aside if anyone is interested. It seems that Jesse did not get transported then despite his sentence. His four years or more absence however caused the expected hardship on his family.  One of his sons Herbert, turned to dishonesty burglary and thieving and did manage to get transported in 1850. Almost as if there was some preordained necessity for the genes to make their way to Australia....

Thanks for your help everyone.

Thanks everyone for these interesting pieces of knowledge.

With regard to a pardon, if it was this it came 4 years after conviction and such I wonder whether the term 'pardon' was not an expungement of conviction but maybe just commuted the  transportation having served a few years already. 

And Josey thank you, in 1851 he had no children living with him but I'll check all births against mother's maiden name to ensure.

Thank you......yes could well be another ship. great thought.   
Well he was sentenced in 1839 and received 7 years , He doesn't appear on 1841 census ( that I have found....his wife and children do) but he is back at home by 1851....so that would have been after his sentence anyway; and while I know that it would have been difficult to get home had he been transported it is not beyond possibility, though perhaps it does suggest he didn't get transported.
Thanks for the interesting thoughts, its an are of genealogy I have not encountered much.

Thanks for that, 'Paid' and Pardoned are good possibilities. Paid less likely perhaps as his sentence was 7 years transportation. THe entry above him was the thief and Jesse was the handler, and they both got same sentence. It looks like the thief entry for disposal says 'Bermuda' I wasn't aware that was a destination of transportation so again not sure.  But if Jesse's entry was 'Pardoned' I wonder where I can corroborate that. The newspapers only have reference to the convictions.
