It doesn’t say that Richard Ryland was his uncle.
It says
‘……….to my much
respected friend Richard Ryland Esquire of Savage Gardens London
The sum of five hundred pounds…..’


Hardy John H H married McIntyre / or Hardy - from the entry) Chesterfield 3a 518 Dec 1947 - is there a reson for the 2 names ?

The reason for the two surnames for the bride on the index will be that the two surnames appear against her name in some form on the marriage certificate.
For instance it might read xxxxx Hardy formerly known as xxxx McIntyre, or xxxxxx Hardy alias xxxxx McIntyre. You would need to acquire the certificate to find out exactly what was stated.

Northumberland / Re: Cemetery - Blyth or Cowpen?

I've always known Cowpen Cemetery as Blyth Cemetery. My great grandmother (long since passed) used to refer to Blyth Links Cemetery as the seaside cemetery!

Yes, this NCC link has it as 'Blyth Cowpen'

Apparently Henry of Hastings married Ada of Huntingdon.

Durham Lookup Requests / Re: Easington marriage 1846
« on: Saturday 30 March 24 15:04 GMT (UK)  »

Online tree gives date 24 Oct 1846 and witnesses William Steel (brother in law) and Thomas Harrison frustratingly not the respective fathers.
But the tree does give George Healer and William Dawson as fathers ,so presumably they have seen the marriage record and it matches with  that.

The parents names can be cross-checked on a free search on Durham Records Online, which confirms that they were indeed George Healer and William Dawson, and also that the abode for both the bride and groom was Seaham Harbour.

London and Middlesex / Re: 1939 register
« on: Saturday 30 March 24 13:42 GMT (UK)  »
It's the fact that her name was changed on the 1939 Register? I presumed it must have been done by Deed poll or why bother to amend the Register. More questions than answers!

My mother in law never changed her name by deed poll. She simply took on the surname of the man she was living with. The alteration in the register was dated October 1964, shortly after they moved to a new location. As Rosie has said, the alteration was quite likely initiated when she registered with a new doctor.

The code NR230 indicates a change of name other than by marriage, see para 2.2 here,a%20reason%20other%20than%20marriage.

As an example, my mother in law left her husband in the 1960’s and went to live with another man, taking his surname. The register was updated, using code NR230, with her adopted surname when the change came to light for some reason.
