The Common Room / A quick bit of Latin naming...
« on: Friday 09 July 21 22:46 BST (UK)  »
I'm having fun with Latin at the moment  ::)

Walterus (Walter...) and Johannula had a number of children. I made the mistake of assuming Johannula was probably Johanna, but have since found out she's actually Jennett. Provided I have the right family, I know her brother's name, his wife's first name, her two sisters' names and who they married (can I find any of them? No... no I cannot)

The children are:
Johannes, Peterus, Thomas, Jacobus, David, Johanes, Hester, and Unknown.

I have been poking at this and found a burial for a Jonah. I had to then wonder- what would Jonah latinise to? Would it go to Johannes (or variations) or would it have a different one? It might mean that I actually have a John and a Jonah.

I have a few Jacobs dotted around the Welsh lines but I just realised that on this occasion it could well be James instead (that took me a while!) I'm assuming Jacob would also become Jacobus so could be either.

This lot are a nuisance no matter which language, frankly  ::)

There's no need to ridicule me for saying that. I'm also, unsurprisingly, not responsible for the actions of our government or any other government.

Thank you. I took a couple a few hours ago. I got a little bit of a headache but no idea if that's coincidence or not since I'm prone to them anyway and it has been hot today.

12 is still good!

I had my first vaccination today. So far so good, I feel fine- and now I've said that perhaps by the time I wake up tomorrow my body will be in a state of all out war  ::) That was the one thing I was wary about, because it is so unpredictable. Some of my coworkers have been fine, others have been quite unwell for days.

It might be around somewhere, just hiding! In my family I have such things as 'missing' birth records because someone pretended to be married to someone else, or wasn't quite married yet or, in one notable occasion, gave birth two years after her husband died (baby later took her maiden name and was raised by other family members, hence the confusion). Other times the records don't make it easy- I lost my CARTER family until I eventually painstakingly went through the census by hand and found them transcribed as LEOTA (how was I supposed to find that??)

I can't find any children either (or the 1881 census). How annoying.

Can anyone find out who was living at 7 McKerrell(?) Road in 1891?

I thought I was onto something for a bit there but my suggestion appears to be on the 1939 with a dob of 5 Jan 1883  >:(

So if I'm understanding, this Daisy was a name you found on the register and you are trying to find more information about her rather than knowing about her first? Do you have any suspicions about who her mother was (particularly maiden name)?

I would expect that "Chasmer" could be spelled various ways as well.

Edit-
What about this one for investigation?
