Surrey Lookup Requests / Re: Missing GRO record

One other point about Banns.  Banns may have been read in more than one parish.  So if one of the pair is shown as being of a different parish, the wedding may have taken place there.


One Name Studies: H to M / Luetchford
« on: Saturday 30 December 17 12:38 GMT (UK)  »
....   and sometimes Lutchford, Letchford, and even Leutchford

I am in the process of registering a one-name study on Luetchford (and close alternatives) with the Guild of One Name Studies.  They were nonconformists from the Sevenoaks area of Kent with a predisposition for the christian names Thomas, William, and Mary.  My maternal grandmother was a Luetchford.

I have already made a start in cataloguing births, marriages, deaths, baptisms and burials - but still have quite a way to go in doing that, and then more in working out how it all fits together.

My intention with the one-name study is for it to be a resource for all with Luetchford connections; it's not much use if I keep it to myself!

I'm not sure where this journey will take me, but I will update this post from time to time as regards status of research, website (when available) etc.  I the meantime happy to have posts on here or PMs on the topic (or via GOONS, once registration is complete)

Excellent stuff: thanks for the gap filling.

Selina and Eliza Ann:

Selina's Marriage to Thomas Robert Pratt- St Stephen Sneinton. 
In 1871 Sarah Ann Pratt, lodger, and Eliza Pratt, daughter, were staying with brother James Woodward b 1836 and his wife Maria.
1891 census Eliza Pratt has married Henry Hutchinson and Sarah Ann is living with them at 19 Providence Street [Don't know what happened to Thomas Robert Pratt]. 
Eliza (as Eliza Ann Woodward; no father shown) and Henry Hutchinson married at Peas Hill Unitarian Church, 4 Jan 1885

Many hands make light work!

I'd not got beyond the date for Rebecca and William's marriage.

Does that mean you do not have this?

REBECCA Price Baptised 5 March 1814, St Peter, Ruddington
Abode Ruddington
Fathers Occp Framework Knitter

MARTHA, 28 April 1816
CATHRINE, 7 April 1819

On FreeREG

Catharine PRICE Married John SANDAY 9 February 1841   Ruddington, Nottingham

Trish :)


Thanks for that -I didn't have Martha Price!  Not sure how I missed her on the Notts FHS baptism disc  ::)   So thank you very much  :D

By "beyond" I meant I hadn't found the actual record (as opposed to a transcript) for their marriage.

I thought I had all  Rebecca's siblings - 4 brothers and five sisters at the previous count - but Martha fills a five year gap quite neatly.

Thanks very much for that - I'd got most of that over the last 11 and a half years - but great to have a Price contact.  I'd not got beyond the date for Rebecca and William's marriage - obviously if she was honest about her age she would have had to have her parent's permission to marry.

I've got the following for their children:

Phebe (1832, Ruddington) M John Baker 8 May 1853, 4 sons D 12 Oct 1886
Sarah Ann (1833, Ruddington) 1 daughter 1857, then married Thomas Robert Pratt 28 Oct 1866 [Nothing beyond 1891 census]
James (1836, Ruddington) M Maria Phillips 2 Jul 1864 [Nothing beyond 1891 census]
Benjamin (1839, Ruddington) D 1840
Martha (1840 Worsborough) [Nothing beyond 1871 census]
Selina (1843, Nottingham) D 1873
John (1848, Nottingham) M Betsy Musson 17 May 1869 D 1929 Nottingham
Lavinia (1850, Nottingham) M Joseph Drayton 29 Oct 1871, 4 sons 2 daughters D 1926
Herbert (1852, Nottingham) M Sarah Ann Banks 2 Dec 1872 Miles Platting, Manchester, 5 sons 2 daughters D 1930
George (1853, Nottingham) [Nothing beyond 1861 census]

If you have any info to challenge my reading of events, I'd be most grateful.

If you want to carry the conversation on, you can send me a personal message on Rootschat - but I think you will have to have made 3 posts to do so (ie one more than you have already, so you would only need to reply to this post).  Keen to check out my Price info with you!


The Common Room / Re: Hatred of the new FamilySearch
« on: Friday 03 June 16 10:26 BST (UK)  »
When I read comments about familysearch I wonder if the person writing the comment really wants to search in familysearch or whether they are really wanting to search the IGI

For searches in familysearch try using

For searches in the IGI try using

It may not make a difference (depending on how you search) but you may be surprised.

Thanks, Guy.  Excellent


I think you'll have to fork out for the identified marriage cert.  How's your busking skills?

BTW on English certs, you only get a father's name (if the bridegroom knew who he was) and occupation. Don't get a mother's name.  I'll have a bit more of a look to see if there's anything I can drag up from the depths (if so will let you know).


The Common Room / Letters from the past
« on: Saturday 22 December 12 18:50 GMT (UK)  »
There's an interesting item in today's Guardian (UK) about a letter written 100 years ago for his descendants 100 years into the future by a Guy Wood.

It seems to be a fascinating combination of social history and predictions for the future

What letters do you have written by your antecedents?
