Cornwall / Re: PENFOLD-1918 absent voters list
« on: Tuesday 19 May 20 16:42 BST (UK)  »
Hi achoo,

I recently found that William Penfold served with the Army Service Corps (ASC) as a private. He was discharged on 25 Feb 1916 due to "sickness". He enlisted on 15 July 1915.

Lydart ... it's so great!!!!

Britgirl and I have connected through DNA tests. Plus I have had connections on DNA matches to the Palmers and a whole LOT of Penfolds ... my Gypsy heritage.

How many years ago did we find your Peter Peters (I think) who died tragically from being run over by a carriage or pony trap?

RC members are amazing!

Ho Bob,

I'm trying to get a grip on all of these people.

So William b 1763, mason is s/o Samuel and Wilmot Bawden and
John b 1762 is s/o William and Mary Bond

Are the father's Samuel and William related?

added ....  I can't find the record of James Thomas Traies s/o John and Betty. What year was he born?

Hi Bob

Haven't been here for a while but as usual found my way back to the Traies family.

I have been wandering around your site for hours haha ... and Came to the same conclusions you did re: Samuel T who married Wilmot Bawden. That baptism of 1726 where Sam is s/o Sam and Sarah could be incorrect as there doesn't seem to be any others being born to that couple..... OR was there another married Samuel in Crediton at the same time?

Anyway I wanted to know who John Traies b 1762 living in Crediton belongs to? On IGI they have him as s/o William and Mary.  In 1841 he is transcribed as John Traces, 79, shoemaker living with Elizabeth A Traies 72. Both born in county.
BTW there is also a William "Traces" b 1794 also living on the same street ...High Street. His age is hard to read me it looks like he's 77 so bc 1764.

Could John (1762) possibly be the son of William (s/o Samuel and Elizabeth Creese) who was mentioned in the Will but no baptism has been found.

OR is John b 1762 s/o William and Mary Bond OR s/o John Traies (m1760 Mary Porter) who became a shoemaker in Soho, London.

Well I've certainly entertained myself this afternoon   ;D

Best regards

South Africa / Death in Cradock 1853
« on: Tuesday 19 January 16 16:15 GMT (UK)  »
Hi everyone,

I hoping someone can help me with details of a death.

George Thorne Huxtable was b 1822 in Devon, England. According to family notes he died in Africa, date unknown. I'm assuming they meant South Africa  ;D

He is last seen in the 1841 census with his parents and siblings living in South Molton, Devon.

Yesterday I found an article in the Grahamstown Journal:
"DIED at Cradock on the 29th Aug. 1853, George T. HUXTABLE, after a short illness of four days."

I am hoping that this is my George. Is there anyway I can find/order a death cert?

I would appreciate any leads.

Thanks  :)


The Common Room / Re: The Diary of Nathaniel Bryceson Revisited Again
« on: Tuesday 15 September 15 02:31 BST (UK)  »

I only decided to look up the Parson's diary as I had been investigating NB again on Saturday (before you posted) and had seen something you had written about the weird is that?! Siamese Girl had stated how she had been reading the diary of Thomas Turner and Sarah Hurst. I have no idea why I decided to look NB up again.

I still have blackboard in the garage with this on it: "Ruskie, (your phone number), Nathaniel Bryceson born 1826 Middlesex, DO NOT ERASE" ............ How funny is that?!

Hi Ruskie  :)

So great to see you too!

I reread some of our threads and found that what I had posted today had already been found.... Just Google Mrs. Sanigear.  :)

I also saw that we are on another thread although drykid has posted stuff regarding Nat and his bookshop on Percy Passage here. Regardless it's fun to be back on the hunt.

Another thought ... we have missing people and their deaths:
We have never found out what happened to Ann Fox (she still drives me nuts to this day LOL), or Mary Shepard/Bryceson/Ward, her death registration or Matthew Ward, his burial or death reg. I recall that 'granny' Mary Shepard's death reg was found but we didn't buy her cert.

I found this today whilst looking for Matthew Ward.
He was apprenticed in 1803 to a Mrs Blackaller, milliner ...maybe that's were his trade as tailor stems from. Apprenticed 19 Jan 1803 - Strand

Also I wonder if this was him, Matthew Ward, Limehouse, and out of the workhouse. At one time he was in as a result of a 'bad leg'.
Mile End Old Town Workhouse
Tower Hamlets, Stepney
2 Jul 1849
26 Oct 1848
23 Jun 1849... discharged.
We can't find him in 1851.

Matthew Ward was a tailor and Ann Fox lived in the same flat/room as Sophia olive did in 1841. Sophia was a dress maker as was a Female Powell (can't recall her name) ... I wonder if this was how NB met AF through MW and the dress makers?
