Kent Lookup Requests / Re: Erith Parish Records - Baptism - BEADLE
« on: Monday 07 May 12 11:38 BST (UK)  »
Hi, my wifes family were Beadles from Erith, the John mentioned above born 1757 died 1831 is the son of John Beadle born 1730 and Mary. The "money" mentioned came from land owned in Sutton at Hone, the Beadles later became Watermen and can be found on the Kent Watermen and Lightermen records.
They also later diversified into coal supplies, aggregates and owning one of the first car dealerships in Kent which still survives today. The Beadles in Erith also started the Fire Service and provided the land for the local hospital. There are several books on the family in Bexleyheath archives library.
I have never made any connection with the Gravesend Beadles so would be very interested if anybody has any info.

Hampshire & Isle of Wight / dyzarts, Hampshire late 18th Century
« on: Monday 07 May 12 11:17 BST (UK)  »
My wife ancestors are Dyzarts who resided around Chertsey Surrey in the 19th Century and later in North Kent. The earliest Dyzart I can find is John born 1777 in Winchester according to a later census.
I have visited Winchester archives and they have only one Dyzart baptism  (not John), for that period.
The name is variously listed as Dysett, and Dysart.
Thank you.

Hi, I am new to this site but after Googling the above name it came up as a thread on the Welsh language forum. Although I am English John Harlech Jones was my Great Grandfather and I have ammassed a lot of information on both him and Nant Gwytheryn. Could someone please arrange a translation for me, I would be very interested to know the content.
