Hampshire & IOW Lookup Requests / Re: Wherwell Parish Regester Lookup
« on: Sunday 25 February 07 16:22 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Bob.
You have probably already done so, but have you looked for the 1841 census for Charles and Mary? This will list any children still at home.
Came across this......   Charles Rumbold married Mary Beavis
 13 December 1817 in Quarley, Hants.  (Quarley is about 10 kilometers from Wherwell.) Is this the family you are looking into? Dud.

Monmouthshire Lookup Requests / Re: Who did Seth marry?

Hi. Thanks for your reply.  It would appear that the only answer is to send for the marriage certificate and keep everything crossed that it is the right one. Again, many thanks for you reply.

World War One / Re: Grandads WW1 History. Help needed.

Hi Wendi.
Many thanks for your reply.  My knowledge of him is somewhat limited.
His name was Mark JACOBS.  He was born in Parkstone, Dorset 16th August 1884. When he joined up in about 1914-15 he was living in Camberley, Surrey. The info regarding his joining up
comes from my mother (aged 95). All she can remember is that he joined up, was captured, and came home.  As I said previously he was a bricklayer by trade and on returning from the war he started his own building firm.  He seemed to love naming places after his earlier years.  The drive in which he built two houses called Courtrai and Galliope  (both I assume after his war experiences) was called Parkstone Drive after his home town as a child.  I can also recall a picture he had hanging on the wall of  his dining room (I'm going back to about 1945 now) which was called Goodbye my old friend by Matania. This depicts a soldier cradling the head of his dying horse. ( can be seened on   )  Was he
conected with horses I wonder?
Thats all I know about his career in the army.  Not a lot is it??

Staffordshire Lookup Requests / Hanley.
« on: Friday 03 February 06 19:50 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Staffordshire.

Can anybody let me know where Hanley is in Staffordshire.
The only Hanley I can find is Stoke on Trent. Is this the one??
I ask because an IGI entry states he was born 1829, Hanley Stafford.

Many thanks for your help.
