Derbyshire / Parish records
« on: Monday 14 December 15 15:29 GMT (UK)  »
I am researching the name Higinbotham and its various spellings, the family I am after come from Chapel en le Frith.. I am having trouble finding images of the parish records for Chapel en le Frith on line, there are some on the IGI but not the early ones.
Does anyone know where I could view them or  buy a disc or microfiche with them on? I have tried Ancestry and  FindMyPast.

Can someone please explain, when the MOD say next of kin when applying for RAF service records do they include the eldest son/daughter as next of kin when both parents are deceased. I am trying to get  my fathers service records from WW2

Thanks Steve

London and Middlesex / William R. L. Hannam
« on: Monday 18 May 15 19:22 BST (UK)  »
I have a potential relative, a William Ray Lasselles Hannam. From his Will in the name of William Hannam dated 19th Aug 1814 I discovered that his "Acknowledged" wife was Charlotte Guest and that he was an Attorney working from Piazza Chambers, Covent, Garden.

On 15th June 1820 William Hannam married Charlotte Guest at St Brides, Fleet St using his full name on the record entry.

In June 1823 William Hannam died noted as living at James St, Covent Garden aged abt 55. His wife Charlotte paying his death duties and noted as living at 27 James St, Covent Garden.

I cannot find any birth for his or parents or other family, can anyone help?

Thanks   Steve
