Shropshire / Re: Stoke ?? Shropshire (HAMLET)

Not yet Trish. Looks like they were married in Liverpool in 1849 but I need to check this.

This branch of my family weren't very good with dates - according to the '71 census he was -5 in 1816! I've not actually checked 1861 - where was he?

Thanks for looking

Shropshire / Stoke ?? Shropshire (HAMLET)
« on: Wednesday 13 April 11 17:27 BST (UK)  »
My GG Grandfather was John HAMLET. According to the 1871 census - by which time he had moved to Birkenhead - he was born circa 1821 in "Shropshire - Stoke". I'm no expert on Shropshire but I am aware there are various "Stokes" - Stoke upon Tern, Church Stoke, Stoke Heath etc.

Is there one simply called or known as "Stoke"?  ... or can anyone suggest how I might narrow my search down?

On second thoughts, that's obvious Alan - I gave you the number!

Unfortunately I didn't make a note of the page I just took a couple of photos. It could be "Moss" but the first "S" isn't the same as the second. What do you think?
Yes, it is the Hamlet family, Alan - do you have a connection?

Can anyone tell me where Mop Street, Oxton (Birkenhead) might have been, please?

I have a family living at No.6 in 1871. I assume it was one of those unpopular names which people decided to change to something "posher" - (e.g. Button Lane, Hazel Grove to Chester Road)

Thanks both. There are umpteen places called "Newton" and I wasn't sure which one. I think the Ancestry reference mentioned Lancashire so I'll try Wigan first.

Could some kind soul with an ancestry subscription please check an entry for me so I can order a death certificate?

I've just checked this at the local library and can't work out whether I've written the details down incorrectly.

I'm looking for the death of Minnie M[aud] H[amlet] SWIGART. Ancestry gave me april/may/june 1952  at Newton - aged 25 - and a reference of 10f 23. I assume its Newton, Manchester but I can't find any reference to "10f" and consequently don't know where to send to for the cert.


Depends on your priorities. Its only money! Some people spend it on fags, some on drink. Many people spend it on cars which tend to rust and wear out and some people think they can take it with them.

There are loads of free programmes around which do much the same as those you can buy. I bought Photoshop to save me frittering the money away on something else and because it translates easily from the way I would have done things in the darkroom.
