Devon / Coroner's Inquest records, Brixham.
« on: Sunday 13 February 11 15:55 GMT (UK)  »
I have been told that a child in our extended family was killed in a hit and run accident in Brixham, possibly around 1927.

The child is thought to have been about 3 years old and might have been called Diane, no idea of surname as complicated "adoption" situation often come across at that time!!

This was told by an elderly relative who has never lived in Brixham - so quite possibly faulty memory AND Chinese whispers, but how could I find if there are surviving Coroner's records to search?

US Lookup Requests / Susanna PULCIFER / PULSEVER b. about 1729 MA or ME.
« on: Friday 11 February 11 12:27 GMT (UK)  »
information taken from “Genealogical and Family History of the STATE OF MAINE” Vol. III [Transcribed by Sandra Boudrou] it seems: John Pulsifer, immigrant ancestor, born about 1650-60, in France, settled in Gloucester, Massachusetts  in 1680, and married Joanna Kent on December 31, 1684. 
John and Joanna had eight children, their youngest son being Jonathan,  b.July 30, 1704, who married Susanna Hadley on  December 11, 1729, and they had three children: Susanna, Jonathan, Samuel.   
I would very much like information if any marriage or burial of Susanna Pulsifer (b. about 1729) can be found in American archives.
?? Not clear why if John settled in Mass, the extract is from Maine??
I would REALLY welcome some help here please, really need to know what happened to Susanna Pulsifer/Pulsever.
Many thanks.   :D

Many thanks. I do have a copy of John's book, in fact I collaborated with him quite closely for the Brixham chapter, but the story is not finished - and there surely MUST be someone out there who is interested??  Somewhere??

Sorry - I am no relation at all.
I just thought you might not be aware you can access Brixham Parish Record transcripts on line.
Good luck with your research.

Devon / Re: ORANGE Devon Middle Names Traditions
« on: Thursday 10 February 11 15:31 GMT (UK)  »
Hello, I was browsing and found this thread. Funnily enough I had never come across the use of Orange as a given name previously, but only last week I made contact with the OPC for Halwell (Coleridge Hundred) and here follows part of our dialogue................

"I have no break down of where names were used mostly. Except to say that Susanna was not favoured in that time frame as a name in Halwell.  In my Halwell Parish the name Orange is used a lot yet never found in Stokenham/South Pool."
So perhaps that might be of help??  :)
I also wondered if it was Dutch influence - any advance on that?   ???

Did you know there a many parish records transcribed for Brixham St Mary's on-line at Genuki, and also on the Brixham Heritage Museum site?

England / Re: Early 1700s births

Is anyone out there who has had ANY success with such early research??

I have got back to a marriage in 1603, but I am not having any luck in finding out about status and occupation. 

Documents such as Protestation Returns and Oath Rolls mostly do not give occupation, and the parish registers rarely give much away, so has anyone found a source that DOES put flesh on the bones??

I will keep my fingers crossed.................   :-\
