As I have it on my tree, Frederick married Eliza Sutton on the 3rd September 1849 in St Bride, Fleet Street and they then went on to have my 2 x great grandmother Elizabeth Sophie Compton. I have all the marriage records, baptism records and censuses attached that seem to corroborate this but I may be wrong as London obviously is a big place and my knowledge of London districts is not the best 🙂

Thanks for the reply, he is very difficult to pin down. Frederick is my Great x 3 Grandfather 🙂

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Henry Compton
« on: Sunday 21 January 18 12:57 GMT (UK)  »
My Great x 4 Grandfather Henry Compton marrried my Great x 4 Grandmother Theodosia Smith (born 1786 in London)  on the 16th April 1808 in St Mary, Putney, London. I have managed to find quite a few records for Theodosia but cannot find any for Henry apart from christening records for their children. I donít know where/when he was born or where/when he died. On one census entry for Theodosia in 1861 she is listed as married and not widowed. I was just wondering whether anybody could shed some light on Henry for me..

Many thanks!

Cambridgeshire Lookup Requests / Page family Great Shelford
« on: Monday 15 January 18 20:09 GMT (UK)  »
I was just wondering whether anyone local to Great Shelford would be so kind as to pop into the churchyard if they are passing and see if there are any gravestones for any members of the Page family from the 1800ís. I have Page family ancestors who lived in Great Shelford and I have toyed with the idea of visiting where they came from and I was just curious if there are any gravestones. I donít think there would be as they did not have much money but you never know. I live close enough to be able to get there in a few hours but just wanted to check whether there would be anything to see as it is a long journey if there isnít.

Oxfordshire Completed Look Up Requests / Re: Barguss Marriage look-up

Brilliant thanks for that! i didn't realise you could do that on the GRO website now so I will definitely be using that again in the future.. that is her, they did have a son called Jesse. Also I do believe James and Elizabeth are Jonathans parents so thanks for sharing they marriage record as well 😊

Just wondering if anyone can help at all.. I am struggling to find my Great x 3 Grandparents Jonathan and Harriett Barguss's marriage.. I have searched on Ancestry more than once and just can't seem to find it, I would love to find out what my Great x 3 Grandmother's maiden name was. I have Jonathan's birth year as approx 1808 in Clifton, Oxfordshire and Harriett approx 1810 in Oxfordshire. Their first child is born in 1832 in Clifton Hampden, Oxfordshire so I would imagine they were married shortly before that. The problem I have quite often is the spelling of Barguss.. i have seen so many variants in my research..I think this could be one of the reasons I cannot find it. Many thanks for any help you can give me.

Thanks everybody for all your help and for the clean up which is fantastic  :) I have attached a picture of the back however I am not sure if it is original or not.. It looks like my granddad has written a shopping list on the back bless him.. I can't quite make out all the writing but I am pretty sure it is nothing to do with the photo!.
I have got another picture of another relation in a pretty similar dress, I am pretty sure it is not the same person but I have attached it to see what you think. It is so sad when you get photos handed down and no way of knowing who it is 100%.

I was given a photo the other day by my Auntie which was amongst my Grandad's possessions.

As usually seems to be the case with photos I acquire, there is no name or date written on the back so who it is is a bit of a mystery, I have an idea it may be my Great Great Grandmother Emily Hudson who was born in 1858 in Norfolk. I think this photo may possibly be the late 1800's early 1900's making her about 40. Would this be the right sort of time period?

Many thanks
