Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: Robert Parkin

I can find a Percy born 1911 registered in Thorne, mother's maiden name Baxter. Still looking for Robert.

Kerby, I have found two occasions in my tree when someone has been counted twice, both times the fathers had forgotten that their now married daughter no longer lived with him.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: Ethel Emerson death 1912

I can only find the death of 4 Ethels registered in Dewsbury in 1912 and the only one in the right quarter is Ethel Brewer. It is certainly a sad tale but a sentence of 18 months is not much of a punishment.

The Lighter Side / Re: My new favourite Christian name - Evilina
« on: Monday 23 March 20 18:34 GMT (UK)  »
My great, great grandfather's Christian name was Pulleine and as far I can find is the only person with that name which is great for tracking him. Until very recently I did not know where the name came from but I now know it was his maternal grandmother's maiden name. His mother died of typhus just a couple of months after his birth and must have wanted to remember her own mother.

My father's side has quite few Euphemias which always makes me think of music instruments.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: its all a bit squashed
« on: Monday 23 March 20 16:17 GMT (UK)  »
I think it does say minor and some of the squashed up writing seems to say that the mother and father consented.

There is a letter in The Times today from someone extremely concerned that nobody in Ambridge seems even aware of the Covid-19 pandemic. They are all still in the pub and have no loo paper crisis. He does say though that when they do find out the programme will be boring.

Never met my great grandparents and by the time I was 10 only had one grandparent left.

Suffolk / Re: Edward and John MILLS

My mother was an evacuee, one of 40,000 sent away from Leeds and she was went to Otley just 11 miles away. How long she was away and whether she got see much of her family because they did not have much money I don't know. I do know though that most of children returned home early, some more than once and eventually the council gave up sending them back.

Record number 3 says India and the one for Peter certainly looks like Africa. FindMyPast has it transcribed as United States.
