The Common Room / Help with deciphering please
« on: Thursday 02 October 08 18:51 BST (UK)  »
I have a letter written by an ancestor in 1886 is anyone able to fill in the blanks† :-\

† † †When I left the Congo we were paying
From Luk to Pool† † † † † † † † †8 ? pay 1 1/2 ?
From Mat to Luk† rations† † †8 ? pay 2 1/2 ?
† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †1† 1/4 ?† † † † 4 ?
† † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † Total 5 1/4 ?? at 2/6 £ 13.1 1/2
The Kps? cost net 1/8 1/2 gross about 2/6 per piece
reckoning Kapetas pay & ferry about 15/- per load.
Then you have to calculate upon the cost of white men.
† † † †If the State could do it, it would
be cheap at £1 per load to the Pool I think, or at any
rate that would be a reasonable price.



Luk is Lukungu and Mat is Matadi

Antrim Completed Look up Requests / Burial Templepatrick - Completed thank you
« on: Monday 18 August 08 18:42 BST (UK)  »
My 2 x great aunt died in 1895 Templepatrick after giving birth to her first child, a son.† Her name Lottie Tapping (nee Ingham) wife of Thomas Edward Tapping (sometimes noted as Edward Thomas Tapping).† Lottie was born in Wellingore Lincolnshire.

Lottie's son, Cyril Edward Tapping, was accidently killed in 1918 whilst serving in France WW1.

What I would like to know are there any Memorial Inscription transcriptions available for Templepatrick?

Kind regards

World War One / Which American Base was Grandad at?
« on: Saturday 19 April 08 14:53 BST (UK)  »
Trying to find out to which American base my grandfather would have been sent after he was injured.

Stanley Edward Knight served in France with the 2nd Worcestershire Regiment (33207).† He was helping to dig a trench when a German bomb exploded nearby, as a consequence suffered damage to his hearing and was sent to an American base to convalesce where he made many friends among the American Officers, he used his skill as a carpenter and joiner to make articles for them.

I have his MIC;† a visit to Kew a couple of years ago found no trace of his records.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to find out which base he was at?

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Tradesman's Homes Manningham do they still exist?
« on: Thursday 10 April 08 23:05 BST (UK)  »
I have just received the death certificate for my 3x great grandfather, he died at 7 Tradesman's Homes, Heaton Road, Manningham, the informant was his daughter of the same address, year 1887, his occupation was joiner and builder.

Were they built for tradesmen as the name implies and do they still exist today.

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Fire damaged family portrait
« on: Friday 04 April 08 18:17 BST (UK)  »
This portrait was badly damaged by smoke after a fire in the 1950s.† Since then it has been in the frame, behind glass, hidden away in a cupboard by an elderly relative.

I've had to scan in two parts as the original is 14" by 11" mounted on card.

Would be very pleased to see it in a cleaner state† :)

Hope the attachment is not too big  :-\

Radnorshire Lookup Requests / Baptism Knighton c1794
« on: Friday 18 January 08 17:09 GMT (UK)  »
Hi

Would be grateful for a look up of the baptism of Samuel Langford c1794 Knighton, there appears to be two born c1794.

Have followed one through the census 1841-1871 in Knighton, this Samuel died in 1873 aged 79, in the workhouse.† In 1841 he was living with Ann Langford, 70, (mother?).

The other Samuel Langford baptised 10th December 1793, Knighton, father William, mother Anne. (This is the one I believe to be mine).

My Samuel Langford moved to Gloucestershire c1820 and have him on all census until his death.
The names William and Ann pass through the family but need to double check that we are following the correct parents back!

Regards

Susan† :)
