Glamorganshire / Ted and Walter Wood
« on: Saturday 11 August 12 18:29 BST (UK)  »
I am seeking information about the musical "careers" of Ted and Walt.
Born into a Salvationist family in Midsomer Norton Somerset (1886 and 1894)
Edward was apparently a cornet player of some dictinction and Walter a euphonium player and along with their father Matthew played in the Midsomer Norton SA Corps Band.

They were both coal miners in the North Somerset coalfield but left the area sometime between 1915 and 1920 for the Rhondda.
Ted had married Beatrice Padden c 1908 and they had four children, Arthur, Ernest, Glyndwr and Nora, the two latter being born in S Wales.
Walt maried Evangeline Fullalove in Pontypridd c 1917-18. They had one son, Ralph, subsequently to become a Marine Bandsman and lost at sea after the attack in the Mediterranean on HMS Arethusa.(1942)

We are not sure whether they moved to the Rhondda primarily as miners (to continue their musical life in a local SA Corps Band) or musicians - to join one of the Colliery Bands.
We believe they lived in the Porth /Trealaw area, although Walt returned to the Bristol area before the start of WW2 and worked at the Mullers Orphanage.

Any information regarding their musical/SA contacts in S Wales would be welcome.

Occupation Interests / James william julnes - "mariner"
« on: Sunday 05 August 12 15:39 BST (UK)  »
How can I  find information regarding the above (my wife's g gfather.)He lived in Sunderland from about 1870 having been born in Kings Lynn,and has been described on all relevant marriage and birth certs of his family as a mariner.
I have no knowledge of where he signed on at various times or indeed what rank he might have held, but imagine it must have been in one of the North East ports.

Can anyone please guide me?

Thanks

Wiltshire / Maplecroft (House) Bradford on Avon
« on: Friday 03 August 12 19:51 BST (UK)  »
Looking for information as to building dates and ownership down the ages . I know where it is but have drawn almost a complete blank on its history.
Most of the standard reference books on Bradford on Avon history have no reference to this property.
About the only positive thing I have established is that it is Grade 2 Listed and a reference in the 1886 BoA directory to Capt Blount.

Any help, leads, pointers would be appreciated.

Somerset / Re: Clutton - Wesleyan Chapel
« on: Tuesday 31 July 12 14:31 BST (UK)  »
Better late!!!
The Wesleyan Chapel is still in existence although now not used for worship.Now in the North East Somerset and Bath Circuit. It is on the main A37 road to Bristol, just south of the Warwick Arms. Not sure who you would seek information from regarding records but there is I believe a Methodist District Archivist- try Methodist Church Bristol District website.

There was also a Primitive Methodist Church which closed many years ago.

Hope this helps
