New Zealand Completed Requests / Arrivals James Hatch
« on: Wednesday 24 June 20 15:35 BST (UK)  »
Hi to all,
Several years ago I researched James Hatch, I have now decided to have another go, I'm still off work so have the time.
James John Hatch b. 1833 Middlesex London. I have him on our 1861 census.
1868 he married Jessie Thompson (widow) August 6th.Charleston
James died 26th Dec. 1886. Baker.
I also have all the children, & Jessie's 3rd marriage to Barclay Mouat 1894.
James was a Baker with a shop on Princes St, Charleston.
So I have a 7 year gap.
I am trying to find when he left England & arrived in NZ what ship etc. I've spent hours going through ships lists, I did find 'Derwentwater' left London July 1861 to Lyttleton Cpt. Thompson & again 1863.
Could it be possible Cpt. Thompson had his wife with him (Jessie) & died.
Any help/suggestions much appreciated.
Thank you

Buckinghamshire Lookup Requests / Father of Henery 1710
« on: Monday 21 January 19 13:31 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All, Just picked up my folder after many years as I hit a brick wall,not surprising really as I'm after info from a long time ago.
I have traced family back to 1710 Henery Archer (yes that's the spelling I have)birth 1st May 1710 Christening 17th May 1710 at St. Mary Aylesbury, father Clement Archer. 
I cannot find anything on Clement or a mothers name, birth, marriage, death. I know they moved from Bierton to Wilstone Tring but this was much later. Any info pre 1710 would be much appreciated.

Thank you. Missmuddle

World War One / Granddads records
« on: Saturday 25 March 17 18:53 GMT (UK)  »
Hi All, I have been researching my family for several years but try as hard as I can, I cannot find anything about my granddads service history. I have all his brothers but nothing about him except a lovely picture of him on horseback. I believe he was in the Herts Yeomanry. His name is Lionel Albert Archer born 3.7.1896 in Sawbridgeworth. I know about the destroyed records in 1940 bombing raid, but with the army usually doing everything in triplicate there must be something somewhere. Would there be records held at the enlistment station ? where would they be kept?. We believe he was gassed & posted missing turning up a couple of weeks later at a dressing station. Would there be hospital records, where are they kept? or should I say hidden, both my sister & I keep looking but coming up blank. He is not the one in the Manchester reg. with the same name. Any suggestions please.

World War One / missing records
« on: Saturday 26 July 14 13:07 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone find any info for me, I've look all places I can think of but nothing comes up.
Lionel Albert Archer, born Tring Hertfordshire, 3rd July 1896, I believe he joined Herts yeomanry. He married 1st Dec 1918.
I have info on his 3 brothers, one died age 17 in Cambrin (17.2.1916).
One of flu (7.11.18) at Shorncliff Hosp. 
The other survived.
I have 2 photos of him in uniform, one on horseback the other looks like a wedding photo with what looks like the Herts emblem on his cap.
Any WW1 info on him would be very helpful,

Thank you

World War One / WW1 aerodrome
« on: Monday 26 August 13 16:18 BST (UK)  »
I have the death cert of my relative, but cannot read the 'stationed at'.
He was a cadet in the RAF stationed at (looks like) sandl-rig R.D. He was at Shorncliffe Military Hospital when he died & buried at Huntingdon. Could anyone tell me where this, I guess, 'aerodrome ' was.

Thank you

World War One / last letter home
« on: Tuesday 12 July 11 15:39 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,

I wonder if anyone can help me. A letter has come to light from a cousin who was clearing out some old papers. I have tried some searches but cannot find any war records for him.
The letter is typed from Mediterranean Expeditionary force Sunday 22/15 from David James Lewis 4th Welsh Regiment. He was killed in action August 23rd 1915 at the Dardanelles.
In the letter he tells us that he at base & has been since Friday with diarrhea, he is feeling a bit better 'only a bit weak' & he expect to go back to his pals in a day or so. he then says again that 'he is a bit weak though.' He then goes on to say about conditions lack of cigarettes & poor food.

What I am trying to find out is did he make it back to the trenches or did he die at base either by shelling ( he says the Turks are shelling the base) or from his diarrhea. I wondered if he did type the letter himself or if someone done it for him, if he was too weak, considering he died the following day, did he know it would be his last letter home.


Pembrokeshire Lookup Requests / 1861 lookup please
« on: Tuesday 07 April 09 14:08 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if someone would look for George Phillips b. abt 1823 Narberth (or Wiston) occupation Schoolmaster, on the 1861 census. As he was the schoolmaster I wondered if he was the enumerator as well?
Thank you Missmuddle
