Suffolk / Re: Ipswich Probate for Kent?

Was the executor/one of the executors resident in Suffolk? If so, they'd have applied for probate at the Probate Registry nearest to where they lived.

Is there anyone visiting the Archdiocese Archive who could look up a file for me?

It's folder (g) I'm interested in: "Materials for Charles Billinge, apostate priest at Moseley"

Hi Cati

I was wondering how you got on with this. I have a relative Omar Hall who had an illegitimate child called Ann to her mother Ann Morrey. He lived with Ann Morrey and they brought up their daughter but didn't marry her until his first wife died in 1833 and died very soon after.

I think we are probably talking about the same people.


Hi Treena

i must admit I've not done much on this line for some time, as I've rather drifted into local history rather than family history, and life has been a bit fraught, so apologies for not picking this up earlier.

But YES!  This is the same woman:  I'd found a newspaper clipping reporting on the marriage of Ann to Omar Hall.  The Dominy/Dominey connection is still a mystery.  And I didn't know about the relationship before the death of the first wife, or of the child Ann.

So we're somehow related ...


The Common Room / Re: GRO Price Increase!

5.00 35 years ago is now worth almost 17.00. ;D You are paying less now  ;)

My point exactly...

The paper copies have nearly doubled in price in the last ten years or so. I'd be interested to know what's driving it. Can't be inflation or postal costs.

I started on my family tree almost 35 years ago: copy certificates were 5.00 then.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: Finding Property Deeds in High Harrogate

West Yorkshire had a Registry of Deeds from 1704, indexed under the names of the main parties as well as the address.

More details here:

So they could marry at 12 & 14 (with parental permission) and have children but were not considered old enough to sign legal documents

Same principle applies today.

Under English law, a minor does not have capacity to enter into legally binding agreements other than contracts for necessaries (goods or services deemed necessary for ordinary living).

The age of majority was altered to 18 by the Family Law Reform act 1969.


The Common Room / Re: How close to the 1 July 1837 date do you have a B/M/D?

My 3x great grandmother married her second husband on 30 July 1837.
