Worcestershire / Re: Alfred Green marriage 1848

Hello again

If you can find where the family are on the census (using occupation to get the right parents) and baptised their children, it might narrow down where they married. Especially if you can find other siblings marriages more easily. Just a thought.

Kind regards, Arranroots :)

Hi Carol

It might be that you have to invest in the certificate to solve this one. It should (no promises!) give an occupation for the father of the groom, provided he is still alive at that time.

Finding a marriage without knowing which church can be a needle in a haystack job!

Kind regards, Arranroots :)

Hello Jim

Thanks, I did have the probate record but I wouldn't have known about Birmingham library - you might well have saved me a wasted journey!

Warwickshire might just be a short step away but it's like a whole 'nother country when it comes to researching! :D

Kind regards, Arranroots :)

Brilliant - thanks, Nanny Jan!

This is a new excursion for me, so I appreciate the help & will try contacting the Archives.

Would still appreciate help if anyone has any other ideas for local resources.

Thanks again

Kind regards, Arranroots :)

Warwickshire / Coroner's Inquest for southern division WAR, 1892

Arthur Maurice (or Morris) MOORE died on 28th November 1892 at Henley in Arden.

An inquest was held and according to the death certificate it was determined that he committed suicide while temporarily insane.

I wonder whether any further details might be obtained of the inquest, which was held the same day as his death, and whether anyone can tell me how to obtain said details?

Also anything in the local press or burial records - we think he was buried at Preston Bagot, where he farmed.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Kind regards, Arranroots :)

Genius, Mike!

You'd be great at Twitter, where every character (sic) counts!

Every time I see a notification for this topic I think it should be entitled Huguenot or HugueNOT!

Sorry, just my sense of humour - it's a fascinating subject.

Kind regards, Arranroots :)

Hi Shabro

Glad you found the museum helpful. As you say, best to check before visiting, though they correspond by email at all times of the year. I hope you enjoyed your visit to the island. As you might guess, I have spent some time there myself!

Kind regards, Arranroots :)

Hello again.

I am wondering whether the passenger list has been written to fit the names that people were known by, rather than directly transcribed (though I might be wrong & am not implying anything untoward!)

Wow the Pulitzer is impressive! You could try contacting the Arran Heritage Centre to see whether they have records of the visit. Local papers might well have covered it, not sure which depending on the date as they come & go!
