Lanarkshire / Re: William Grant McKee, born 1888 in Glasgow
« on: Monday 07 November 16 10:32 GMT (UK)  »
Thanks Jonn. Based on that I found that Henry McKee was born in 1835 in Ireland, and Ann/Annie Reynolds was born 1837 in Ireland, the daughter of Esther, who was living with them in 1881.

I have found out a bit more. Agnes Elizabeth Grant's parents were William Grant (born 1819 in Bothwell, the son of Alexander) and Agnes Pollock. In the 1861 and 1881 census, William was a Railway engine driver.

Lanarkshire / William Grant McKee, born 1888 in Glasgow
« on: Monday 31 October 16 12:07 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking for the ancestors of William G. McKee, born in Glasgow, born 1888, given as about 1889 in the census.

I'm pretty sure I have the right person in the 1901 and 1891 census. His father was James McKee, born about 1861 in Glasgow, his mother was Agnes Elizabeth (Grant) McKee. They were living in Pollockshields in 1901 and in Govan in 1891. Judging from the age of William's older sister Agnes, James and Agnes must have been married in about 1884.

Before that I'm not sure. There are some James McKees in the 1871 census, but I can't be sure which one might be the right one. James was born in Glasgow but I have been told that the family came from Ireland.

Buckinghamshire / Re: Mead, Meade and Mede, 1600 and before

There have been Meads there back into the 15th century, as well as in nearby Ilmer and Saunderton, though itís not possible to be sure about the relationships for the first couple of generations.

First, John Mede of Towersey, husbandman, in the Court of Common Pleas:
1472 Hilary/dorses 1313
Bucks. Thomas Hampden, esq, versus John Mede, of Toursey, husbandman; John Baker, of Toursey, husbandman. Trespass: breach of close at Toursey.

Then, a generation later, William Mede, of Towrsey, husbandmanm in CP:
1501 Easter/dorses 484
Bucks. Nicholas Bonse or Bouse versus Nicholas Brytwell, of Charsley, gent; Richard Hykkes, of Crendon, husbandman; and William Mede of Towrsey, husbandman. Debt.

1503 Trinity/fronts 120
Bucks. Thomas Ingylson versus William Mede, of Toursey, husbandman; John Sprygyns, of Parva Kymbyll, husbandman. Debt.

A generation later, John Mede, of Toursey, husbandman, in CP:
1518 Trinity/dorses 891
Bucks. Thomas Boller versus John Mede, of Toursey, husbandman; Robert, Bayle, of Toursey, husbandman; Thomas Ravenyng, of Toursey, husbandman; William Webbe, of Toursey, husbandman; Thomas Darell, of Toursey, husbandman; Trespass: breach of close.

This must be the same person as in the 1524 lay subsidy and 1522 muster rolls:
1522 musters, John Mede of Towersey Goods £6
1524 lay subsidy John Mede of Towresy £4

William Mede of Towersey Grange, yeoman, is identified as the son of John in Common Pleas:
1550 Michaelmas/fronts b 2113
Bucks. William Fylde and Maude his wife versus John Belson, of Towersey Grange, gent, and William Mede of Towersey Grange, yeoman, son of John Mede, on a plea of covenant.

1552 Hilary/fronts 162
Bucks. William Fylde and Maude his wife versus John Belson, of Towersey Graunge, gent, and William Mede of Towersey Graunge, yeoman, son of John Mede, on a plea of covenant.

I also have some parish records of baptisms and burials, but only starting in the 1590s for Towersey (and ending in 1638):

I have wills and other info about Meads nearby, in Ilmer, Saunderton, etc:

Buckinghamshire / Re: Annie Louisa Mead
« on: Wednesday 20 April 16 07:08 BST (UK)  »
Annie Louisa Mead is in the 1911 census:
Age 19, born 1892 in Aylesbury, Bucks
Living in Thornbury, Gloucestershire
Occupation: Domestic help

Working back from there, Annie L. Mead was the daughter of Matthew (born 1868 in Dodderhill or Dodershall) and Annie (born 1869 in Claydon)

In 1871 and 1881, Matthew Mead, born 1868 in Doddershall, is the son of Richard Mead (born 1826 in Mursley or Swanbourne) and Susan T. Mead (born 1840 in Newton Longville)

In 1851, Richard Mead, born 1826 in Mursley, mother Mary, born 1794 in Stewkley.
Siblings Joseph 36, Susan 19, Catherine 17, William 14

This must be the same family in 1841, in Swanborne: Joseph Mead, 50, and Mary Mead, 45,
children Joseph 25, Mary 24, Sarah 19, Catherine 7, William 5, George 15

Before that, there were people named Mead living in Murlsey, Soulbury, Stewkley, Wing etc for hundreds of years.

This is what I have on them.

First, this is written by  Henry J. Mead, in 1918. The first few paragraphs are nonsense, but he has good information about the descendants of Richard Meade of Soulbury:

https://sites.google.com/site/meadfamilyhistory/home/counties/bucks

I have taken their ancestry back to about 1480, using wills, lay subsidies (tax records), etc:

https://sites.google.com/site/meadfamilyhistory/home/counties/bucks/soulbury

The wills are here:

https://sites.google.com/site/meadfamilyhistory/home/wills/bucks/wills

Especially William Meade in 1558, Richard Meade in 1645 (Matthew's father), the inventory of Joan Meade (his mother) in 1670/71, and Matthew's will in 1699.

Hertfordshire Lookup Requests / Re: Thomas Newell c. 1620
« on: Wednesday 29 July 15 06:25 BST (UK)  »
The place to start is Hertfordshire Names Online:

https://www.hertsdirect.org/ufs/ufsmain?ebz=2_1438146915909&ebd=0

If you search for Newell 1550 - 1650 you will find several in Hertfordshire. With luck one of those wills in the early 17th century might mention a son named Thomas, though there would be no guarantee that he is the same person as your Thomas.

There is also an account and one inventory, of Richard Newell of St Albans, 1563. Inventories, listing all the person's possessions and their worth, are very interesting but have little information about other family members.

In the absence of Parish Registers, you might try manorial records. These are for Royston Manor, records at Hertford.
