Armed Forces / Next of kin
« on: Friday 13 November 15 11:14 GMT (UK)  »
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

Thanks dantemortem
 My 5x g grandfather had 7 children all born in St James's Westminster between 1758 and 1769.
The problem that I have is that although I have a considerable amount of information about his later life  I can find nothing about when or where he was born.
The only connection I have to the name Delme is one of his third son has it as a  second Christian name and I thought it may be his mothers maiden name.
The name du Mez I have not come across.
If his wife Elizabeth was a Delme she would have to have been born around 1735 give or take ten years.
Do you have any other info on the Delme family or know were I could find some more info. I am in London for a few days at the beginning of September.

Thanks again  Steve

Thanks chempat
                        Yes I think they are the right person, the dates match, he did work out of Piazza Chambers.  There is also another document on-line (Ancestry) dated 1800 relating to William Hannam which I do not understand, it seems to have something to do with Williams indenture.


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

Thanks for the help with the first one.
This one may not be quite as easy. Still the Will of a  Solicitor based in Covent Garden London

The words I cannot make out are underlined in blue

Thanks  Steve
