The Common Room / Re: stuck on Fiddes family - Dr. Alexander & John Gregory
« on: Monday 09 March 09 07:31 GMT (UK)  »
on 1891 census John Gregory Fiddes was a Marine Baker ( other docs = merchant baker. Is there a differnce?) born in New York USA. married to Sarah ( in 1886 age 24) died dock labourer in 1899 .
On their marriage cert JOhns father was Alexander Fiddes Occupation. Doctor of medicine(deceased).

hope someone can help or lead me to what to look at next.

Hi Tracey.
  Re Marine Baker on British ships the 2nd. Cook always signed Articles as 2nd. Cook & Baker, whether this passed over to American merchant ships, I don't know. I assume a Baker would sign as the same on a passenger ship becuse it would be a dedicted job in that he would be Baking most of the time; I would suggest that if it was a passenger ship you look for Baker but on a Tanker or General Cargo ship it could be 2nd.Cook & Baker.

Hi Linda,
    I read about this many,many years ago from memory I recall that "A Bastardy Bond is issued at the time He/She is Baptised. The Bond is paid by the Father to Acquit the parish in the event of any changes that may arise to the Bastardy Law"  The Bond could be anything between 20 pounds and 500 pounds.  This was around 1740-1850.
  There must be a reference  to it somewhere!!
