Wiltshire / Parents of James Gray
« on: Tuesday 02 February 21 14:16 GMT (UK)  »
Hello All, 
I'm trying to find the parents of James Gray 1816-1881.  He was born in Pertwood, Wiltshire  Mary Pike was his wife from Newton St Loe, Somerset.  They seem to have settled there and had 4 children. 
I think I've found a birth record stating James's parents as Thomas and Mary (possibly Miles) but can find nothing more about them - assuming I have the right James and assuming his parents were living in Pertwood.
Very sketchy, I know   Hoping someone will be able to find out more.  Thanks

Family History Beginners Board / Anderton family
« on: Wednesday 20 January 21 15:28 GMT (UK)  »
A chance finding of a small coin while sweeping the garage floor has led me to find out more about it!  It's a token from the 17th Century and is inscribed with the town Stony Stratford and the name Robert Anderton.
So far, I've found info from a couple of sources - (Tokens from Buckinghamshire and Civil War petitions)  Robert Anderton was born roughly 1618-1623 (Civil War petition describes him as being over 80 in 1703)  He was a mercer and married to Mary unknown.
Possible ? :She died in 1675 and he remarried to Elizabeth Ebbs in 1675.  Francis Anderson, a grocer could be a relative.  Any help would be appreciated

Back on the trail...........
I can't find any marriages between a Postlethwaite and a Palmer.  Maybe they just lived together like John and Elizabeth  :-\

Thanks John
Unfortunately, I can't download it because, although I've registered, I'm still waiting for an email verification from National Archives >:(

« on: Tuesday 08 December 20 20:35 GMT (UK)  »
I've now moved on to the son of John Postlethwaite.  Edwin  John Postlethwaite.  He was born in1851 in Clerkenwell, London.  Parents John and Mary Ann Roberts.  In 1861 he is living with his father and Elizabeth (Page)who was recorded as his wife but they never married.  Records show he was in the Royal Navy but unfortunately deserted in 1872.  I cannot find out what happened to him after this.  Thanks

Thank you for this information.  Very interesting.    I'm still thinking that the 2 John's are the same person. ( a day out on death report)   Just need help to find more evidence, if possible. 
Helen Dempster:  The only person I can find who may be tie in with the death of John is Helen wife of William.  Their first 3 children have all been born in Maryport, Cumberland.  1862, 1865 and 1867
Unfortunately, the family moved to Birkenhead in between 1861-1871 Censuses, (their 4th child was born in Birkenhead 1871) so I can't check the street address.  However, it would make them living there in 1869.  A too tenuous link?

I've just read through the thread and you mentioned the newspaper report but I didn't have the death certificate at the time.  I'm sure they're the same person, don't you think?
