Kent Lookup Requests / Re: Richard Odden, baptised Jun 1747, Milton next Gravesend
« on: Friday 18 February 22 17:28 GMT (UK)  »
We've all learnt something new!

I was born in Kent, my father moved to near Sittingborne in the 70s. I knew of a Milton, Kent, but now don't remember whether it was near Gravesend or Sittingbourne.

Kent Lookup Requests / Re: Richard Odden, baptised Jun 1747, Milton next Gravesend

Thank you both for that. I was looking at St Peter and St Paul, Milton next Gravesend, so the wrong ones.

I didn't realise there were 2 Miltons so close together.

Problem solved, I have let my FindMyPast subscription lapse, will look next time I subscribe, it doesn't seem to be available at CityArk.

Kent Lookup Requests / Richard Odden, baptised Jun 1747, Milton next Gravesend
« on: Friday 18 February 22 14:59 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for the baptism of Richard Odden, said to be 28 Jun 1747, Milton next Gravesend, father James (familysearch).

I have found records at Medway City Ark for Milton, but Richard Odden does not appear in them on this date.

https://cityark.medway.gov.uk/Details/archive/110006827

Any ideas where this record would be? The ones I have downloaded don't appear to be Bishop's Transcripts, are these available anywhere and to be the likely source?

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: Kirkburton baptism 1718
« on: Tuesday 23 November 21 14:04 GMT (UK)  »
Thank you both, I agree with Latham Hall. Any suggestions as to where this might be?

I'm not sure if this is the baptism I am after or not. There was  another Ann, father John of [ ? - Hallshaw], baptised Dec 1718 in the chappel.

Any ideas as to place?

Basically, I am looking for an Ann Roebuck, born c 1719, married John Woofenden in Kirkburton in 1740, my husband's 6G grandparents.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Kirkburton baptism 1718
« on: Tuesday 23 November 21 11:25 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone decipher the attached record, please?

Very poor quality, transcribed as 'Ann daughter of John Robuck, baptised 22 May 1718, Kirkburton'.

There is something written after John's name, indicating his abode, but I can't make it out - [something East?].

And I am not sure that it says 'Ann', either.

Australia / Re: Ure Beatrice Ward, left Australia 1922 for London
« on: Wednesday 29 September 21 16:36 BST (UK)  »
Once again, thank you all. Quick update.

DNA testing has confirmed that Ure Beatrice Holden/Ward/Hubbard/Langley was not the mother of Steven Claude Ward.

An unknown lady registered the birth using Ure's name. She may or may not have been the same lady that went to Australia on Demosthenes.

1921 census should hopefully clarify things, but my Australian cousin is currently grandmotherless.
His DNA matches haven't identified her, but he has a fourth group of matches who obviously represent her ancestral line.

Sussex / Re: Milham of Hendfield, Yokehurst of Sussex

That is really interesting.
I think those were the wills I was looking at at the weekend, got as far as 1575.
Briefly looked at each one, most in very poor condition, was so near to 1586!

I might look again in the middle of the night to see if they are unlocked, or perhaps it was a different set entirely. I wish my memory would hold up better.
But Nell found some as well - was it that set, Nell?

Thanks again. Maybe worth sending off for Ann's. I am looking for some evidence that their son William Barker, 10G grandfather, was the only son, and what, if anything, became of his 2 sisters, Joane and Margaret.

Thank you. Worth a try, and good that I didn't send off for them both - might have paid for nothing.

Still looking for records for Mary Briggs/Milham/Yokehurst and Joseph, nothing found so far.

So cross with myself.

I found the right film, I think. Got as far as about 1575, going through the wills one by one.

Accidentally clicked the page off. Not quick enough to retrieve it, and can't find it again.

My concentration has been very bad over the last few months, hopefully only temporary, and I was enjoying my efforts with the original query, then searching for the wills.

As you may see by the time this is posted, I have been working on this for a few hours.
