The Lighter Side / Re: New series next week on the Beeb of Who Do You Think You Are?

Well ! Wasn't that fascinating ! One thing they didn't mention was that Judi's ancestor Tycho Brahe lost part of his nose in a duel, and wore a prothetic made of brass !

One of the craters on the moon is named after him (Tycho); you can easily identify it at full moon (from the UK) .... its the very bright crater near the 'bottom edge' of the moon.

I'm now in email contact with jenjoburg !   I think we must be second cousins.   How delicious !!

There is such a lot to take in, and I know some of the info you kind people have put up, is inaccurate ... so I need to climb into my loft and find the FH files !!   One trouble of having only a few Christian names in one family !    Almost as bad as my other searches for John and Mary Williams in South Wales !!

I checked on FreeBMD   and have this:

September 1908   (marriages)
HANHAM    Caroline Susan A        Fulham    1a   756   
POPLETT    Alfred                        Fulham    1a   756

I haven't checked the 1939 .....

Girl Guide .... this is getting very interesting indeed !

I need to go up into the loft and find all my FH stuff to see what I've got in the way of certificates, etc. 

Intriguing !

So should my parents when they were married be using the surname Hanham .... and thus should my birth (two years after their marriage) be recorded with that surname ?   And should I have subsequently married (and divorced !) using the Hanham surname ?   Am I legal ?    ;D    ;D    ;D

Very interesting !!!

And I see Jenjoburg has only been on here once .... pity, as it would be good to contact her as we are distantly related !

Thank you for all the additional information.

I'll add it all to the page about the plate in the church inventory ..... when the church is open post Covid !

I'll give it a go, especially as its my daughters 50th birthday on 12th May, 2021 !   

I've kept diaries intermittently for 50 years and more, so this will be a bit different.

Certainly, a reminder nearer the time would be very useful !! 

Church of ENGLAND ??    Kiltpin ?     

Church in Wales hereabouts !!
