Staffordshire / William Alfred WILLIAMS, 1, 2 & 3. Wolverhampton
« on: Thursday 06 August 20 09:02 BST (UK)  »
I have a number of questions regarding 3 men named William Alfred WILLIAMS


Modified to delete question 1

William Alfred WILLIAMS the husband of Emily Jane LOTE
he is fairly consistent about his place of birth being Tamworth, Warwickshire about 1837 (except in 1871 when he is a coalminer and says he is 29, so b about 1842) At his marriage to Emily Jane LOTE in 1886 he said he was age 40, a Carbolic Acid maker and  his father was William Alfred WiLLIAMS an Engineer. 
He also says he is a widower

I have been unable to find the first marriage
I have not been able to find a birth/baptism or 1841, and so of course, no mother.


in addition, at his death this notice appeared

Modified to remove that question to military board.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Bs & Vs 1600s

What is the rule (is there one?) for B & V

I ask because I am looking at records for SIVORN,  but it is clear that earlier it is SYBBORN and similar.

So is it that a BB = a V sound?
Or...?

What is a Gaun in this context?

Google tells me it Scots for going or a Gown! But obviously neither is correct in this context

"Two Logg Chiars & a Little Wheel one Churn & a pail & gaun"

Added - there are also some 'little gaun'  in the buttery

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / What is the name of Elizabeth’s father?
« on: Monday 03 August 20 03:17 BST (UK)  »
Would be grateful if someone could tell me what Elizabeth’s father’s name is.
I don’t believe it’s an abbreviation for John, given the appearance of the other Js.
I think his wife is also Eliz.? Does that Thomas below, belong to the next entry?

Elizabeth filia...............  Blake-
more & Eliz ux bapt fuit.

The Lighter Side / Parish Register comments
« on: Wednesday 15 July 20 10:53 BST (UK)  »
I am looking through a parish register and in an otherwise bland document was this comment next to Hannah Humpage who was buried age 54

Quote
"This woman without a minutes previous illness, while she was making hay fell down and without uttering a word expired immediately. Whoever thou art who readest this prepare to meet thy God.”

So.. I've read it! Now what!
