I've got a query regarding the National Archives website.  I'm trying to find out more about Charles Nicolas D'Aubusson de la Feuillade who came to London from France sometime between 1753 and 1783.  I've done an online search and there's no trace - does this mean that he definitely didn't adopt UK nationality and I should stop looking?

Many thanks,

Nick

Hi Nick,

Welcome to RootsChat.

AS far as I know, if he was naturalised, then he should be on TNA, but... it wouldn' be the first time that "should be" doesn't mean "is"  :(

He may not have been naturalised, especially if it didn't mean any advantages for him.

Check out the Book-Link on the "Immigrants Resources", board:
BOOK: Immigration and Aliens: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,45248.0.html
it is a very comprehensive description of all aspects of Immigrants, Alien, Naturalisation and the TNA.

and the link: LINK: Naturalisation Notices in "The London Gazette"

Good luck,
Bob

Hi B.Bob
How I wished I had read these messages sooner!!! I have been to Greece a couple of times  to try and find out when my gt.gt.grandfather came to UK. Now with thanks to one of your links,  I know, well at least I know when he got his nationalization. THANKYOU     :-*

My mother came to England in 1930 from Austria, aged 20.  As I understand it she was 'naturalised' when she married my English father in 1837.  She was lucky and was not interned during the war. 

Do you think there would be any records/documents of her arrival and subsequent movements until marriage? 

Any thoughts gratefully received... :)

Hi sussexgirl,

my relatives were refugees, so their situation was a bit different (as enemy aliens they definitely had to be registered). I don't know about peace-time registration but I found a book about Alien Registration in the library, from the TNA in KEW.

Check the link
BOOK: Immigration and Aliens: http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,45248.0.html

with luck you can order it from your library.

Good luck,
Bob

I have moved my bibliography on WW1 internments to a separate thread so that it will be more accessible and easier for me to find when i want to update it, which I will continue to do.

You're most welcome.
If anyone can help me find any record after the beginning of WWi for Peter KREIN, born Germany, settled in England before 1901, who was interned somewhere in Britain, I'd be thrilled.  In early 1914 he was a 48-year-old master baker living in Camden.  There is no record of him at Isle of Man; and Kew is thousands of miles and a big puddle of salty water away, alas.  Perhaps I'll find him somewhere in my own bibliography, once I have time to read it all! 
So much research, so little time!

P.S.  One of the archivists at Kew told me by email that just because it says "naturalised" on the census doesn't necessarily mean that it's true.
