Durham / Re: One of my many dead ends Hugh Perry
« on: Tuesday 04 January 22 19:45 GMT (UK)  »
Thank you for your replies

I have looked for a marriage between Hugh Perry and Elizabeth Hodgson with no success or at least not so far with the records I know of.
I always felt her surname may be Hodgson because of her sons name .

I did another search for Elizabeth Hodgson on Ancestry and this popped up out of the blue
NameElizabeth HodgsonGenderFemaleBaptism Date1 Jun 1751Baptism PlaceSunderland,Durham,EnglandFatherThomas HodgsonMotherJane

I would think that there is a strong possibility this is the Elizabeth I am looking for of Hodgson was her family name. as she would of been around 20 when she had her first child.
Now I have to hope a Perry Hodgson marriage shows up

I then looked for baptisms for Hugh Perry/Parry again for the period 1730/51 and did not come up with many at all but the mothers names did not help and not a one was in the northeast of England.
I used Ancestry and the Family Search records.

As to the Deptford marriage i have put that in my records as I have learned never to suppose.
I had a very bad habit for a long time to assume that in the 1700s that people never travelled far and if it was over 20 miles it was likely not the one.  That caused me grief once computers and Ancestry and the like came into being.

I have spending my time today looking at a family journal I found that  my mother wrote and the time we lived in the UK for 3 months well they were preparing PMQs for Canadian military families at 2 fighter wing Grostenquin France near the German border.

We spent that  time with family friends in England.  He was the Vicar of Holy Trinity Church at Gee Cross near Hyde.
 We docked at Liverpool on the Ivernia,  December 31 1953. 
Holy Trinity also had a school and I  attended,  but the journal said they did not really know what grade to put me in and I did not adjust well to the change from my Canadian school.
  My mother got wind that every morning the school would have assembly and everyone would sing God Save the Queen and then we would go into our classes where the teacher would make me stand in front of the class and  sing Oh Canada.  The Vicar put a stop to that.  No wonder I didn't adjust.  :)
Its a wonder I didn't need therapy for years.
I could not make any sense of pounds pence and shillings so it was a good thing I was not there really long. They gave me a load of cardboard money and I was to learn it but it appears I never did.  during the time I was there.

I remember the Vicars daughter Lynn taking me to a Pantomime and I loved it and I also remember it was very smoggy there at that time and being taken for walks up the Werneth low. 

It was nice to read what my mother had to say about the area and our time there and put me in a better state of mind.

Durham / One of my many dead ends Hugh Perry
« on: Tuesday 04 January 22 17:10 GMT (UK)  »
Greeting from freezing Winnipeg.

I have been trying to find information on 4x g grandfather Hugh Perry.  I have used Ancestry Record and the LDS records with no success.
 
This is what I know:
Hugh Perry had 4 children  Thomas baptized 1771, Jane 1774, Hodgson 1779  and Hugh 1779-80
All we baptized in Sunderland.
All baptism records indicate the mothers name was Elizabeth.
 I think there  might be a chance her surname was Hodgson as I DNA match with quite a few people who have Hodgson ancestors in the Tynemouth area.

I have been trying to find the  marriage of Hugh Perry to a Elizabeth a bit earlier then 1771 with no success and I have been trying to find a baptism of Hugh Perry Sr. again with no luck.

Thanks for any help or advice you can give me.


Jim

The Common Room / Re: Oldest legible gravestones in England, Scotland, Wales, NI?

I googled it and got this answer
What is the oldest headstone in UK?
The oldest legible outdoor tombstone where we can read the inscription is possibly this one: It dates from 1616, and is in the Greyfriars Kirkyard in Edinburgh. The churchyard was founded in 1562 and burials have been taking place since here the late 16th century.

Hi from Winnipeg Canada.
My son and wife and our 2 kids are feeling better.   
However on the nasal test results 2 tested positive and 2 did not.
On the second  rapid test 2 tested negative, 1 tested positive and the youngest grandchild did not have the second rapid test but he is fine physically.  None of them are showing symptoms.
The one who tested positive is the one who has to work out side the home so they are finding out what to do and it appears they can go back to work after 5 days as they are not showing symptoms and wear medical mask but the Provincial Government wont answer what they mean by a medical mask and if its what we all think it is, you could not get one here.   A gong show if you ask me.
The kids may go back to school in a week but no one knows yet.

My son however is very stressed and we did facetime with the grandkids last night but that was a fiasco.  Our granddaughter is 13 and she did not want to chat with us nor did she want us to see her.   She waved her hand so we saw that :).   I hope it is just a phase she is going through as this has happened twice and she has always been very close to us.
 
Weather is very clear and very cold so there is no way you can leave a window or door open here unless you want to freeze or have a heating bill that will bankrupt you.

Happy New Years from Winnipeg.
A sunny very cold day. (-39)

My grandkids are feeling better and so are their parents.
My d in law had a rapid test so she could go back to work but I think she was to rapid getting it
as she still showed positive. 

In any case a very Happy New Years.


Happy New Year to everyone from a balmy southwestern Ontario, 3 C today.  Snow is gone but coming back soon, and colder temps.

Good to hear your family is feeling better.

One development here is that the provincial government is no longer going to report numbers of cases in schools.  Why?!
The true numbers now will never be known, as they are only testing those with serious symptoms or are in a high risk group - everyone else is to use the rapid tests, and there is no central reporting system.

We aare still reporting all cases but they are 11,000 tests behind so the figure is not close in my opinion.  Most hospitalizations here are non vaccinated

Ontario has decided to delay school reopening until next Wednesday rather than Monday.  Not sure what they think two days delay might do, but there it is.  Parents clamouring for kids to stay in school, but what happens if many staff are out sick.  They are having huge problems getting supply teachers.  I could but I won’t…too old for that now, anyway 😁.
Suddenly remembered today I have a bone density test a week tomorrow at a local hospital.  I wonder if I should postpone.  Am not worried, am solid bone wise, not in family…more worried about catching omicron.

Manitoba cant decide what they are going to do yet Diana.
My wife and I had eye checkups and my wife had a appointment with a heart specialist which is a yearly thing.   We changed the heart specialist to a phone call instead of a visit and we put the eye tests back a month.

It was a  stressful Christmas for my wife and I here in the middle of Canada.

We had not seen our son and d in law and our 2 grandchildren for 5 weeks and the Provincial Government said Families could have Christmas together if vaccinated and did not exceed 10 people.
With us  we would of equaled 6 in total all vaccinated.  My wife and I triple.  My son and his wife and their 13 year old double and their 11 year once as he has to wait for the second.  We were very excited.

2 days before Christmas our granddaughter came down with a sore throat and there was not a rapid test to be found and the Covid testing sites were 6 hour waits and then many were turned away.  I managed to get one from a relative and my granddaughter tested positive. 
Her temperature reached 102.  On the day before Christmas they all went to get Covid tested and were turned away .  If you test positive on a rapid you have to go for the PVR one.
On Christmas day when it was 30 below here they went at 6 am and got all got swabs at 8
The day after Christmas my grandson took ill with 101 temperature.
My son has a headache and my daughter in law is coughing but so far they seem ok.

Now they wait and they have a backlog of 11,000 to be tested in my Province.   I know they have it and there is not a thing I can do about it.

I am very worried for them all although they are not terribly ill, but I am beginning to get nervous about every thing.  Our front door is not fitting right and is letting in a draft which i sealed with insulation tape but it got me very nervous and I am fixating on it as the door cannot be fixed until spring which is April.   I guess I am trying not to think so much about my grandkids.

We celebrated Christmas alone and were very lucky we had each other.

I apologize for venting.

Happy New Year to all.
