The Common Room / Census Help
« on: Tuesday 26 March 19 19:17 GMT (UK)  »
I've stumbled across a quick issue when looking through the census for my relatives. As you will be able to see in the picture below, there are a few cottages and farms with one family occupying each one, yet there is "Ash Hill Common" which has 3 families occupying it, one of which is my relatives. Could someone please tell me what they would live in on "Common Land".

Looking into some of my relatives, and came across a census but I am unable to read the handwriting on some of it. If anybody could please identify what the census record says, it would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Travelling People / John Cash or John Doran
« on: Saturday 16 March 19 14:33 GMT (UK)  »
Hello, today I am requesting some help with going further back from some of my distant relatives.

1. John Cash
John Cash was a famous traveller and piper sometimes known as "Cash the Piper". His father was also John Cash who I am attempting to go back from.
John Cash, born about 1791, Wexford, County Wexford, Ireland. Married Elizabeth Ryan who was born 1795, Enniscorthy, County Wexford, Ireland. Death was 1870, Wexford, Wexford, Ireland. Elizabeth's parents were John Ryan and Susy MacNelly.

Edit: John "Cash the Piper" Cash has two recorded wives. Mary Conners (family search) and Polly Conners (read from the internet). Not sure which one though.

Further Edit: Polly could be a nickname for Mary, read on ancestry.

2. John Doran
Johnny Doran, another famous traveller and piper was the great grandson of John Cash on his grandmother's side. On his Doran side however, it goes up to another John Doran.
John Doran born 1823, County Wexford, Ireland. Married Jean Breen about 1847 in County Wexford, Ireland.

Any information on either of these families would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

You may have seen a few posts out there from me, but I'm just wondering if anybody would be able to help me look into my family for gypsy/traveller heritage that I believe I have. I managed to trench through many familysearch records and find an Augustine Bearse, who was apparently a Romany gypsy, deported from England because of that and married a native american girl Mary. If anybody could please help me with this it would be extremely appreciated, I'm not looking for much help just someone who I can through things with.
Thank you.

(If we could perhaps work on something, then there could be a reward for you, not really anything in terms of money though).

Does anyone have any information on Hillier gypsies in Hampshire?

I've managed to go up through the ages and not through direct relation, but they are indirectly related to Augustine Bearse, and I have also managed to link them to some families such as Gray, Lovell, Keeping, who are not confirmed gypsies but most likely.

Any information is appreciated, thank you.

Travelling People / Southwell
« on: Saturday 02 March 19 18:43 GMT (UK)  »
Just wondering if anyone might have any information on a traveller/gypsy family known as Southwell. They were primarily around East Wellow of years about 1800-1900 and some immigrated to Australia. I believe them to be gypsies/travellers because I have found on the records occupations like "Hawker" and "Dealer" etc. and a lot of them seemed to move around a lot without any records of addresses.

Also, I am not sure if this is another indication, but using FamilySearch, there is an affiliate record type, and in some it says Household and this is in the residence records. I am not sure if this means whether they are living in a house or not but if anyone could help me on this then please do.

Thank you.

Hello, Iíve been looking around and cannot seem to find anything on my ancestor William Webb. Could someone please go back on him a bit. He was born 1716 and died 1790. He was married to an Elizabeth Webb, and was most likely around Hampshire, but Iím not sure for certain. One of his sons was Thomas Webb, born 22 dec 1753, died 10 mar 1793. Thomas was married to Mary glarle and there is a record of him being an innkeeper at the Fox inn in 1784.

Thank you
