 :)I can read some of this, but can't piece the whole thing together. You have all been so helpful in the past that I am asking again for help.
Thank you, Jo

Hi, I have a copy of a relatives application to marry another convict but can't read the reason that the refusal was given. Two weeks later it was granted and they were married!!!
Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Hi Suzey,

the lookups that you have been doing are amazing and I'm hoping that I can add my family to your list. They have many generations of watermen/lightermen on the Thames and living in Australia I am limited to the information that I can access. I was able to check the Apprentice Bindings from 1798 onwards but would love to know of family watermen earlier than that date. I would also love if you could check the The Company of Watermen & Lightermen of the River Thames Admissions List for Pensioners 1794-1837 and The Company of Watermen & Lightermen of the River Thames Reassingments 1688-1908 for me. The surname is Puplett (Paplett/Poplett) and they were all mainly living in Woolwich/Bermondsey/Mile End. I greatly appreciate the time and effort that you have shown on everyone's behalf and hope that you will be able to help. I look forward to hearing from you and wish you a very Merry Christmas,
Regards, Jo :)

Thanks Roy,

I'll keep my post up a bit longer and my fingers crossed that someone might be able to look this up for me. I appreciate your time and effort in replying.

Merry Christmas, JO :)

Thanks Martin,
I would love to have the name of your researcher, it can't hurt to get a quote and maybe my Christmas present this year can be some research funds! I too wish you lived closer - so many of my relatives come from London - including my own mum!, but no-one who lives there now to ask. If I do happen to find out more I would love to be able to forward it to you. It is always great to share all this with someone who appreciates it. I spend an incredible amount of time and money on all of this and no-one in my family appreciates it in the slightest. You can actually see their eyes glaze over as relate my latest "discovery". Hopefully one day they will see the value but for now I enjoy it immensely and find it to be a great source of enjoyment and relaxation. As a full time working mother, with three children aged three to fifteen, I need all the relaxation that I can get! So thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you again.
Merry Christmas, Jo.
