Suffolk / Eliza Clouting
« on: Wednesday 13 March 13 11:05 GMT (UK)  »
i have the marriage of Eliza Clouting & William Gibson:
Day:07  Month:Jul  Year:1835
Groom Forename:William
Groom Surname:Gibson
Groom's parish:Tunstall
Groom's condition:Widower
Bride Forename:Eliza
Bride Surname:Clouting
Place:Rendlesham  Country:England
Record source:Suffolk Marriage Index (1813-37)

they appear on the 1841 as aged 35 in Tunstall. Eliza has died by 1851.

the problem is that most sites on the web think Eliza was born 4/5/1804 Rendlesham to Robert & Amy. i can find some of their children but no sign of Eliza.

I have found a birth/bap:
3/8/1804 chr 21/7/1805 Chillesford D/O Lazarus Elijah & Margaret Brenkley

can anyone help confirm which Eliza is mine?  I have tried to find her death (i have the burial index)& have sent for one for Eliza Clouting (maiden name ) mar 1851 Plomesgate i found on freebmd.

Durham / Lingy Fine/Penny Fine, Lamesley
« on: Wednesday 03 October 12 15:19 BST (UK)  »
I have found what i think is my ancestor details:

Baptisms, Lanchester District - Record Number: 375815.0
Location: Lanchester
Church: All Saints
Denomination: Anglican
10 Mar 1767 Thomas Sanderson, of Lingyfine, son of William & Ann Sanderson

googling I think Lingy Fine or penny Fine is to be found between Lamesley & Sunniside (mentioned on sunniside site ) seemto be a farm. there is a Pennyfine rd on the google map - can anyone pinpoint Lingy Fine on an old map please.
