I see, also in 1861, Mary Ballern, born London in 1784, an innkeeper at St. Annes, Alderney.
Southern or Southan [Hereford , Monmouthshire & Glos], Jenkins, Meredith and Morgan [Monmouthshire and Glos.], Murrill, Damary, Damry, Ray, Lawrence [all Middx. & London], Nethway from Kenn or Yatton. Also Riley and Lyons in South Africa and Riley from St. Helena.

There is a St.Peters parish in Jersey as there is in guernsey, the one in Guernsey used to be known as St.Pierre du Bois..

I would like to thank everyone who has helped me with the search for my ancestors on Alderney.You have all found out more in minutes than I could have found in weeks.All I have to do is to send for birth and marriage certificates and that will be it. I have another family to trace so if I get stuck I hope you don't mind if I get back to you.I hope in future, I will become knowlagable enough to add a little advice to your site,but i think that may be a long time off.
By the way,I am a member of a couple of forums,I wonder if you would mind if I told them of your site.
Once again,Thank you Thank you  Thank you for your help.
                                                                                              Regards--Tibia.

Hi Tibia

Of course we'd love you to spread the word about Rootschat!  8)

If you have further questions you'd like help with that aren't related to this topic, just start a new one - pop it on the county board that seems most relevant.

Hope to see you again soon

Kind regards, Arranroots  ;)

Hello,
I just googled an old family name and found your great website!  James Ballern was my great-great-great grandfather and I have had trouble finding out what happened to him on the official genealogy websites so thank you for all the information you found for Tibia as it really helps me.  His daughter, Elizabeth, married my great-great grandfather William Boyce who was a lighthouse keeper on the island.  They named my great grandmother Helena Scott Boyce and now I see that Scott was the maiden name of Helena Ballern.  I visited Alderney in 2009 and saw James Ballern's wine shop which is now a private house.  Saw the lighthouse too although it was rebuilt in 1906.  If anyone has any details of where the other Ballern children ended up, I would be delighted to hear from you.
