Staffordshire Lookup Requests / Re: Burslem & Rolleston burials - WALKER
« on: Monday 22 October 12 21:34 BST (UK)  »
Hi Geoff

Just back from holidays so just seen this - sorry for delay in replying.

I'm going to rule out the John born 1825 - he was just on the edge of potential dates anyway as "my" John is having kids with a 24 year old by 1841. Plus I think given baptism / burial info he is in all liklehood not still around by then.

On the others / Rolleston deaths have so far ordered one certificate which is for a joiner but who was in his 50s so again not "my" John - I think the father of the John on the census. Am still trying to work out if this excludes the younger John from my possibles!

Thanks you for your help and confirmation of the baptism - much appreciated!

There is a Holly Lodge on Peel Street, just off the High Street. If you look at that address / postcode on then there is a Wood Terrace showing running along the High Street so I think the PP may be correct in saying it was a range of houses on the main rod, maybe given the Holly Lodge in that general Peel Street area?

Thank you GR2, and for such a quick reply too. Doubt I would ever have got all that on my own and would have gone with batchelor so is much appreciated.  :)

Sorry should have put up what I know.

It's Thomas Archer of Welford in Northants and I think it says batchelor (but could be butcher??) and Edward Clark of West Haddon, Northants who was a schoolmaster. Date was 25 Nov 1722.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / 1722 Marriage Licence in Latin - help?!
« on: Friday 21 September 12 16:58 BST (UK)  »

would be very grateful for help with this one or a pointer to a source where I can work it out? My schoolgirl latin isn't up to the job at all (fluked my GCSE in it!). It's two extracts from a marriage licence from 1722. Have had these before but they have been all in English and am struggling.

If I have missed an easy way to work this out myself then am more than happy to be pointed that way and will have a go at it but a browse through the resources didn't seem to find anything?

Hi pigmoss

If you are still around and looking into this branch I have Thomas & Catherine's family and two generations further back. Happy to share info.


Staffordshire Lookup Requests / Burslem & Rolleston burials - WALKER
« on: Monday 10 September 12 14:44 BST (UK)  »

If by any chance anyone has access to the parish registers for Burslem and / or for Rolleston I would be very grateful for any info on the following:

BURSLEM - IGI lists burial of a John Walker aged 1 in 1825. Am hoping to find parents names.

ROLLESTON - Looking to trace the death of a John Walker in the period 1841 - 1851. He was a Joiner and born abt 1818 (+ or - 5 yrs). Free BMD lists 3 possibles for this period registered in Burton on Trent in 1841, 1844 and 1847. John is on the census in Rolleston with wife and twin daughters but gone by the 1851.

Need the above as am trying to trace which of the 5 or 6 John Walkers baptised in Burslem between 1810 - 1825 is "mine". Am working through the baptisms and the census to rule all possibilities in our out. Is proving quite some task!

I have "my" John for certain on the 1851 in Carlisle but so far not found him on the 1841 though gradually ruling out the possibilities. He dies in 1857 and I suspect never formally marries his wife with whom he has 7 children. I have been able to verify that she left her husband and young child to be with John so potentially he did the same. Would love to know the full story behind it but will settle for proving his parents.  John was a joiner, and the John who disappears from Rollaston was also a joiner. The only one listed on the 1841......

Grateful for any help with the deaths / possible deaths. If not then will go down the record office and ordering death certificate route but trying to reduce the cost! Thanks

I didn't realise that they did not do a research service  :( However it looks as if the parish records I would require do not exist early enough. Thanks for the advice.
