Leicestershire / Re: cooper family /woolman family and /hartshorn family
« on: Tuesday 06 September 16 17:08 BST (UK)  »
Had a quick look. I have a Charles hartshorn and an Emma Allen. Charles born 1846 and Emma 1841 I think. Living on barkby road thurmaston on 1881 census.
I'll have a look to see if i can find anything else. As far as I can tell, all the thurmaston families can trace back to john hartshorn born 1740. The families seem to move between belgrave, birstal and thurmaston.

I think we have spoke before but don't think it was the bible


Leicestershire / Re: What parts of Leicestershire are you connected with?

Hi all
I myself am from kibworth beauchamp. My Mums side of the family ended up in belgrave, but have found further back in st margrets in Leicester as well as st Leonard's, thurmaston, birstall, wigston and walcot.
Dad's family is mainly northamptonshire, but part of it goes back to tilton on the hill and halstead.

Do you know Charles and Mary's birth date and Mary's maiden name? A lady called Ann Price and myself have managed to sort out a fair bit of the thurmaston families.
I am related to a Charles hartshorn and Mary smith

Technical Help / Re: Do You Separate Your Research by Lineage or Ancestor?
« on: Sunday 03 July 16 10:07 BST (UK)  »
I have 5 seperate trees for a couple of reasons. Firstly, as I have some relatives doing other parts of the family, I was only going to do one part of the family originally. Since starting to do the others, when discussing or asking questions, I find it easier to refer to that family tree, Especialy when using the ancestry app for the phone. Another thing in favour of doing it this way is because I've used my great grandparents as a starting. Now the only disadvantage that may come later is that I have been in contact with a couple of people and it transpires that one person on his tree has relatives of mine from three different trees and another person has relatives that connect to two different trees. I have also come accross a couple of surnames on different trees that may be connected. No definate links yet though.

Northamptonshire / Re: Ishams of Greens Norton

Is Robert connected in any way to sir giles isham. If so, there have been various articles about the family over the years. I think I spotted some northamptonshire history books at our local library. If he is, I'll have a look when I go in on Monday

Thanks for that Lisa.

As I can't find his death on manatoba's vitals, still wondering where he died.

Did either Benjamin or Elizabeth have any other connections in Canada that you know of  ?


As far as I know so far Benjamin didn't. Elizabeth I don't know about tho. As she originally came from Liverpool area there is a chance that she did

Also for information. Benjamin and Elizabeth had a daughter in 1888. She was left with her aunt in halstead when they went to Canada.
