Worcestershire / Help needed in Ombersley
« on: Saturday 20 May 06 11:20 BST (UK)  »
Help I know John MOULE was buried in Ombersley 25 Oct 1797 but I don't know his age. We have found several John bapt, who could possibly be our ancestor but the only way I can think of to sort them is to have his age at death. There is no MI list for Ombersley in Hereford. If anyone is near Ombersley can you be kind enough to see if there is a grave for him?? The Johns we have found range in birth dates from 1754- 1764 He m in 1792 to Esther who was bap  1757 first m for both. ???

Somerset / Re: Poulton or Paulton

I Know that people travelling to work had a cheap fare on certain trains. Gt Grampy was a GWR man and he told us that the train was the main form of transport in his valley. The railway was put into the valley to transport the coal out and so adding the passenger service was the next step. I think our lotcrossedthe Bristol Chanel on coasters there was a regular trade coal to the west country  gravel and people to S. Wales. Again ours seem to have gone North via a stop in the industrial mid-lands namely Dudley. The way they travelled would certainly be a worthwhile project.
Happy hunting

Hi AnnieRN,
 :)Many thanks. It sounds like the Radstock Museum deserves a visit can you give instructions of how to find it opening times etc? Do you know which company  had posted the advert?

Have recently discovered a case  of NEEDLES in my Tadmarton Oxfordshire roots! Does anyone have a similar family? The mother was from Ireland (Londonderry) and the father was a soldier not much to go on I'm afraid  ???

Leicestershire / Ann ORTON
« on: Thursday 18 May 06 17:34 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for Ann ORTON who m William WILKINS in Norton Juxta Twycross Leicester 7 Feb. 1792. Family search has two entries for an Ann 1769 in Blaby Leicestershire but one gives her parents as Thomas & Isabell and the other Thomas & Elizabeth. Can anyone confirm the mother's name? Does anyone know of any other possible Ann ORTON of a suitable age to marry in 1792?
Hoping someone can help :)
