Hi Nelwild

Your Amy Mobey was baptised as d of John and Amelia, Victoria Road, Chair Caner, at St John's, Fulham, 3 Dec 1876.

The marriage of John Mobey and Betsy Hearn took place in the same church, 3 Nov 1879. He's described as bachelor, 20, Stoker, 1 Victoria Road, son of John Mobey, Horse Dealer.

She is spinster, 20, d of Solomon Hearn, Tinman.

Both signed with X. Witnesses were W. Huxley and David Shopland (who both signed - the latter looking like a regular witness)

Found these on Ancestry.co.uk - who in the past few days have made available all of London's parish registers in digitised form (bapts 1813-1906; marriages 1754-1921; churchyard burials 1813-1980) :) So no need to buy pre-1906 London marriage certs any more...!

Many thanks Both.

Steve,

I think with all reference books,the passing of time makes revised editions necessary,particurlary nowdays with info more easily shared,and new names constantly emerging.

Having said that,this sight in itself is like a constantly updated reference book.And it means Bobs info can potentially help a lot more researchers.

As always,im really grateful for your input.

And Sharon,

im equally grateful to you for confirming all that.I had no idea this info was free.

This is going to save a lot of time and money for a lot of people.

Regards,nel.

Glad the London parish register release info was useful. It's worth getting on Ancestry's newsletter mailing list to be kept alerted.

William Street, Chiswick seems to be a favourite street with the Huxleys and other Hawker families. In 1871, Venus, Union + 2 sons William and Samuel are living there, as well as, a few pages on, 51yr old William Huxley, Working Cutler, born Hadlow Kent, wife Caroline 47 b. Middx Harrow + children Ellen 16 Fulham, Arthur 13 Fulham, Selina 7 Chiswick, Liaas 2 Chiswick and Alfred 11 Fulham RG10/1321 Folio 81 Page 10 and 15

and 1861 enumerated as "Oxley"

RG9/28 Folio 79 Page 21
Russell Place North end, Fulham

William Oxley 42 "Butler" (I suspect this should be Cutler the same as 1871 occupation!) Kent Audley?
Caroline 37 Harrow
"Selinas"? son 19 Ostler Turnham Green
William son 10 Acton
Ellen dau 6 Fulham
Arthur son 2 Fulham
Dunning/Downing, Osborn/e, Astley -Cheshire/Birmingham/Middlesex
Fanthorpe/Hall/Driffill/Storm - Lincolnshire
Bower/Woodward/Bingham/Pettinger/Shaw - Nottinghamshire
Shaw, Marland - Lancashire

Catone

Many thanks for all this.

I think we can safely assume that the Huxleys in that area were either travellers or traveller connected from the names and occupations.

Now i need to find Amelia.

Ive tried the Ancestry site for the London records,but unfortunaetly my subscription doesnt allow it,so ill update it tomorrow.

Ive also now got a marriage to a Dixey/Dixie in the area,which after a few glasses of the tati parni looks very like Huxley.

You never know.

Nel.

The collins were a travelling family and still are look around travelling fairs Collins fair has been coming to Congleton in Cheshire for over 100 years now and they actually own a piece of land in the centre of Congleton which is still called The Fairground even thought the police station is now built on it after Frank Collins donated it to the people of Congleton.  Good luck with your search my Grandfather was very close to the travelling community and circus people and I know they are hard to pin down anywhere,
