London and Middlesex / administration Anthony Camp index SoG
« on: Monday 31 May 21 06:58 BST (UK)  »
does anyone know how to find the actual administration for Filida du CROZ?  1782

Prerogative Court of Canterbury administrations 1750-1800

the info says the originals are held at National Archives [CLASS PROB 6]

But my brain is failing me. I cannot find it.

Ancestry doesn't seem to have it  in "All Index to administrations in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury"

Thank you as always

Other Countries / Netherlands. Henry du CROZ. living The Hague 1772
« on: Saturday 29 May 21 06:43 BST (UK)  »
Entering completely foreign territory for me.

on 22 Feb 1772 James du CROZ (of Lamb Conduit Street, in the parish of St George the Martyr, London). wrote

Item I give to my brother Henry du Croz
now living at the Hague, the sum of twenty pounds to
be paid him Six months after my decease .

I am hoping that if Henry could be found his records might give information about their parentage.
James was buried at the Austin Friars Dutch Church in London, so I am assuming (but you know what they say about that!) that they are of Dutch origin.

All guidance gratefully accepted!

Suffolk / looking at records on Suffolk Archives Website
« on: Tuesday 25 May 21 12:08 BST (UK)  »
I have registered on the Suffolk Archives website. and I can search, but when I try and look at a document eg no matter where I try and log in,  (so far I have found three places to do it) , it seems to accept my username and password OK, but nothing happens.

What is the trick?

Norfolk / Maude Gleane's marriages say 1650 - 1686
« on: Tuesday 25 May 21 07:20 BST (UK)  »
When Elizabeth Gleane (of Saxlingham, Norfolk baptised 1636) made her will

in 1657 she named a sister

Maude Gleane, my eldest sister
now the wife of John Sharbury (added, now think this is Shawbury)  of Rayne Thorpe   (of the county aforesaid which is Norfolk)

1. where is Rayne Thorpe?
2. Can anyone see a marriage for Maude Gleane to John Sharbury?
3. Can anyone see a death for John and a subsequent marriage for Maude to Robert HORNOR

Robert died 1686  - so the last marriage must be between 1657 and 1686

Heraldry Crests and Coats of Arms / 1654 - impales three garbs 2 and 1.
« on: Tuesday 25 May 21 06:22 BST (UK)  »
British History online ( says of St Mary's Church, Saxlingham Nethergate

"Gleane impales three garbs 2 and 1"

Gleane is the surname, but can anyone describe the rest of what I assume is a coat of arms to me?

Thank you.

What is the word after Gleane?   it is his marriage. It clearly doesn't say Bachelor, nor Freeman
but something man?
