Suffolk / Re: William Reynolds Blogg, born in Suffolk - help finding his family
« on: Sunday 07 February 21 00:21 GMT (UK)  »
Just seen through a FindMyPast search that there's a 1778 marriage entry for Samuel Blogge and Mary Grimsby in Laxfield in the Suffolk Marriage Index.

Suffolk / Re: William Reynolds Blogg, born in Suffolk - help finding his family
« on: Saturday 06 February 21 23:29 GMT (UK)  »
There was a Samuel Blogg farming in Laxfield around the time of William's birth. Samuel's lease on arable and pasture land was due to expire at Old Michaelmas 1788 (Ipswich Journal, 13 August 1785).

There was a Samuel Blogg b. 1786 in Laxfield and farming in Creeting St Olave, Suffolk at the time of the 1851 census. His 1852 will is available in Norfolk Record Office - as is that of Blogg, Samuel, the elder, farmer, of Creeting St Olives, Suffolk, drawn up in 1831. Could he be William's father? Both wills should be accessible through FamilySearch.

The elder: 1831; NCC will register Hart 323
The 'younger': 1852; NCC will register Latten 817

Hope this helps.

Lincolnshire / Re: Name of Inn or Public bar, 1852, Guildhall street, Lincoln.

From the clips on British Newspaper Archive, the Mason's Arms was an established inn used by the great and good of Lincoln at the time - so sounds the most likely from what Frances' death notice suggests about her background (linking to your other thread).

There are two listed on pubwiki.co.uk for 1850

Mason's Arms Inn 5 Guildhall Street landlord (appears to be) Charles Todd
Beer retailer Mary Turner 8 Guildhall Street

Not sure if these are on the 'same' Guildhall Street.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

The 1871 census has Edmund Pearce age 71, publican, b Hitchin, residing in St Marylebone Workhouse. He was baptised in March 1801, but could well have been born some months earlier.

Suffolk Lookup Requests / Re: Aileen Joy Brewster/Gale
« on: Sunday 10 May 20 17:50 BST (UK)  »
Hi,

I know you posted a couple of days ago so trust you have spotted Rose Penny and Alfred Brewster's marriage in the register at St Barnabas Sutton in 1912 and Rose and her mother Rosa in the Waveney valley in the 1911 census. My guess would be that Aileen was born at her grandmother's.

Just wanted to add that Brewster is a common surname in the area. Although Alfred's immediate family seem to be from Sutton and Essex, it would be worth looking out for some 'country cousins' link - Rose and Alfred may have met through connections in Suffolk rather than in Sutton.

Good luck with the search.

Lincolnshire / Re: 'The case is altered' public house Algarkirk Boston

There is an article in Lincolnshire Life May 1967 (Vol. 7, No. 3) (on LincstothePast) with an anecdote about how the pub was named after a confused local farmer mistook animals straying onto his land as his own. It also gives a little history of the pub.
