London and Middlesex / Re: Lloyd London Mystery

Re Russia,
I believe that Russia may have been an English name for Heliogland. I understand it was in Prussia or he may have been visiting real Russia and died there.
The Demark records are very good for their colonies but could not find him in census or Wills. Maybe trying to keep a low profile.

Hi Guys,
Glad to see some happiness.
When "late" is used in respect of a place it means  'has been recently living' but not necessarily his original or other address. This is good as it shows he came from elsewhere(Hanley!).
If it is used re a person it means deceased ie the late Mr....
The key word is "of".
What a shame they did not say Mr B Lloyd, that would have really settled it for me.

The births I have for Benjamin snr were obtained from the private books of the Baptist Church in Upton held by a retired Rev. They were in his private home. Visited there several years ago.
I did not see a Benjamin Lloyd as one of the sons. This does not mean he was not a son.
I will be going back in Sept/Oct and will try and get another look at them.
I stressed to him they should be in the Worcester records office but he was not comfortable with that.
Need one wee bit more info to get JBL as a blood relly.

Just found some new information re Lloyds at Hanley Castle.

From the Berrow newspaper in Worcestershire.
Lloyd Benjamin 29/04/1819 @ Russia Son of My.Lloyd of Hanley Castle.
(This is probably a son of Benjamin Lloyd Snr)
Lloyd Mrs 06/01/1820 Hanley Castle Worcestershire wife of Mr B Lloyd

Benjamin Lloyd snr and wife Sophia have a plaque on the Baptist Chapel at Upton upon Severn which has:
Benjamin Lloyd Deacon Upton Baptist Church for 50 years.  Died Jan 31 1834 aged 90.  Sophia wife of above died 28 Dec 1819 age 76.
It is hoped that The Berrows death refers to the son of Benjamin snr.

To find this out the baptist records which are at the Worcester Records office:
Here is a reply from this office
"I have searched through the catalogues to our collections and amongst our un-catalogued material there is a deposit BA 14252 which contains a register of births and burials from 1694 to 1866 and minutes from 1793 to 1872. "
The office is moving and not open until July this year.

The Mrs Lloyd would seem to refer to Benjamin Lloyd snr wife whose death is recorded on the plaque.

Armed Forces / Re: South Mayo Rifles

Can someone help
I note that the South Mayo Militia was "raised" in 1793.
Can anyone tell me if a unit/militia exited in South Mayo before 1793 and if so was it the forerunner to the SMM.

I have researched the Thomas family of Builth Wells and am a descendant of John Beaumont Thomas's brother William Thomas.
Is there any Beaumont-Thomas descendant who is researching the Thomas family.

I have done research on the ancestors of Ellen Eliza Scott who married James Swinford.
I can send data if you wish. Have you also done similar work?

First time user. I am researching the ancestors of Ernest George Swinford.

How do I communicate with the person who posted his name on this site?
