I've just picked up this thread after discovering my ancestor Hannah (Anne) Moxley of Denham

m Matthew Bethwind, also of Denham, in 1724. Hannah was b 1675, the d of Peter Moxley & his

wife Hannah, previously Trenley, nee Newman.

Hi Everlea

What information have you got for Isaac so far? On a General search for Isaac, the only births around that time are in Lincolnshire at either Welbourn in 1745 or Welton Le Wold in 1736.

Regards Jon

Hi Jon,

         Thanks for taking the trouble to look. I've no information at all about my Isaac before his

marriage in 1776 to Sarah Trenley at St George, Hanover Square, London. Sarah was from

Denham, Bucks & in 1792 he was working as a carpenter in nearby Uxbridge when he was

declared bankrupt & sent to Newgate Prison. In 1800 Sarah made a claim as a pauper, saying

Isaac had left their house off Tottenham Court Road, London, twelve months before but gives no

more details of his departure. That's the last trace of him as far as I can see.

I've been unable to rule out the two you mention, but neither have I been able to rule them in.

I've no proof he was born around 1750 - I just presumed he might have been as Sarah was b

Thanks so much - that would be great. Isaac is my most stubborn brick wall.

I hope you don't mind if I join in here, but I've reason to believe the Headlands from the Souldrop

area might be linked to my Headland ancestors but I've been unable to make the connection so far.

I'm looking for the origins of 4xg/grandfather Isaac Headland, b abt 1750.

Thanks - and apologies for the intrusion(!)

The following is from the National Archives, but not available to download. I wonder if anyone

might have information regarding the nature of this case?

Ref: C11/1884/19

Description: Newman v Newman

Document Type: Bill only

Plaintiffs: Thomas Newman of Denham, Buckinghamshire, and Sarah Newman of Denham,(son

and daughter of Thomas Newman, yeoman, deceased of Denham) infants,(by John Wilkins, gent

of Chalfont St. Peter, Buckinghamshire.)

Defendants: George Lack and Sarah Lack his wife and John Newman.

Date of Bill(or first document): 1740

Note: The naming of a party does not imply that he or she will appear in all the documents in this

cause (after the Bill.)

Date: 1740

The infant Sarah was my 5xg/grandmother. Her mother, Sarah Snr married George Lack after the

death of her husband Thomas the yeoman. John Newman was his brother & the children's uncle.

John Wilkins is not a relative as far I can establish, but an official of some kind within the county.

In 1740 Sarah Jnr would have been about 12 & her brother Thomas Jnr, 9.

The best suggestion so far is that the adults were not looking after the children's interests in

following the terms of their late father's will.

If anyone could add anything or has any information about this family, I would be interested to

hear from them.

Thanks in anticipation.

I'm trying to find the origins of 4xg/grandfather Isaac Headland who I believe may have come from
In 1776 he married Sarah Trenley at St. George, Hanover Square,London so I presume he was around the same age.Their children were born at various locations around Middx, Herts & Bucks.
In 1792 he was bankrupt & described as a carpenter,chapman & general dealer of Uxbridge.
His only other appearance is as witness to a wedding at St. Botolph. Aldgate, London in 1797.
Sarah's 1800 Pauper Settlement says that he had rented a house in Tottenham Place for four years
but had left twelve months previously - not sure whether that means he had "done a runner" or
just relocated the family.
The name Isaac was very popular for the Headlands in the Welbourn/Potterhanworth areas &
my late father certainly believed there was a Lincolnshire connection.
There is one candidate - Isaac, son of John & Catherine Headland bap 14 Aug 1745(they appear to have had another son of the same name bap 1745 who probably died) but I've been unable to rule him in or out.
I wonder if anyone with local knowledge or a special interest in the families of that area might be
able to help with this stubborn brick wall?
Thanks in anticipation.

The Worshipful Company of Stationers has details too. The address was 3 Fleet St & the family

was certainly there from at least 1794 as there are refs to them in court cases.

Good luck!

Have you tried the Richmond and Twickenham Times, a weekly newspaper started in the 1870s?

They may be able to help if you contact them. Good luck!

Did those people, men & women, who worked at Bletchley Park live in digs close by, if so, how did they keep their coming & goings so secret? Just curious!

Around 1990 I spent a week at Bletchley on a course run by BT. We spent our days in the main

house, but slept in the original huts used as on- site accommodation for these workers during WW2.

Ashamed to say I knew very little about Bletchley before then.
