Nottinghamshire / A lost Charlotte
« on: Tuesday 22 October 13 16:16 BST (UK)  »
Charlotte Hannam Baptised 2nd Feb 1795 at Our Lady and St Cuthberts (Priory) in Worksop. Parents Richard and Ann Hannam, Richard lived in East Retford with his wife  until his death in 1838.
I can find no trace of Charlotte after her baptism or the death of Ann ( who may have been Esther Ann). Can any shed any light on them please.

Can anyone tell me what the last word in the first line of this address reads, it looks like ????chatel but I am unsure what the first letters are.

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Illegible grave marker
« on: Thursday 27 June 13 15:16 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone improve the quality of this photo please I think it reads

The beloved wife of
Thomas Hannam Esq
of Middlesex Place   ( where he lived)
Who departed this life

That is as far as I could get there should also be the mention of a Mary E Edmonds and a Susan James in that order.

Thanks        Steve

Nottinghamshire / Missing baptism
« on: Tuesday 11 June 13 16:45 BST (UK)  »
I have a second G Grandfather Richard Fitzwilliam Hannam married to an Elizabeth Dunk, they had as far as I know nine children born between 1861 and 1879. During this time they lived at East Retford Nottinghamshire according to the Census, but I am unable to find baptisms for any of them. any suggestions?
Their names were
 Agnes b 1861, Ada Charlotte b 1863, Charles Richard b 1864, Frederick Henry b 1867, Samuel Fitzwilliam b 1869, John Richardson b 1871, Augustus Fitzwilliam b 1873, Tom b1876 and Francis b 1878.
They all seem to be missing

Thanks Steve

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Trouble with a word
« on: Wednesday 22 May 13 11:31 BST (UK)  »
I have a letter of Administration which is quite legible with the exception of one word . It may be because I have not come across it before but I would like some help with it, it is the word underlined in red. The line reads " Probendary of the Probendary ?????????  Jurisdiction founded of Caistor founded" any offers?

Thanks Steve

The Common Room / Will or not
« on: Tuesday 21 May 13 13:14 BST (UK)  »
I recently purchased what I thought was going to be a Will from Lincolnshire Archives, it duly arrived an excellent copy and very legible, so far so good. After spending several minutes trying to make sense of what I had got I realised that it was not in fact a Will but what seems to be a letter of administration for someone ( the document was for the right person) that has died intestate.
Does anyone know what these are called or know where I can find any information about them? I would be grateful for any information

Thanks   Steve
