Thanks, Chris - it's useful to know that the database isn't comprehensive.

Cheers,

Hi Stovepipe

Thanks for the database always useful to have, my great grand father was a vicar in ringwood, I would say in the early 1930's I believe from my mother that he took over from his brother. Is there a recent database somewhere to look for this?

I don't know which religion Lydia's father preached for, in fact I am up against a complete wall on this one!

Many thanks

What name are you looking for in Ringwood?  I have a copy of Crockfords for 1865 and also 1951 in book form and also there are CDs for 1932 which can be bought from Archive Books - if they are still going.  Most big libraries have copies.
Our family vicars were not on that web site either - does it stop when Crockfords starts?  Could not see any names after 1830s or so.

Hi all

I was out last night, so missed all of this frantic activity.  Crockfords - I knew it was something like that  ::)

Have checked the Sussex Marriage Index for James Matthews but nothing.  But as Lorraine says traveller couples often didn't marry, I have some myself.   But at least neither Lydia or James are on the index so didn't marry anyone else.  :D

Hi

No Lydia & James where together until they died, Lydia in 1862 in Windsor with the fever, and James in Farnborough hants in 1890 from old age!

The surname I am looking for who was the clergy in ringwood in Viney, first name William, but as I said his brother was also a vicar do any Viney will be useful!

Many thanks

No William Viney in either 1932 or 1951 Crockfords
Two in Australia in 1951. Errol Jack Viney and Stafford Stanley Viney
Otherwise just Hallen Viney who is at a church in Marylebone.

I think Lydia's father was, but I think my Grand dad wasn't as he lived in the vicarage, very confusing  ???
