Maybe they tried and it was difficult. Perhaps it was more about the man rather than the child.
I enjoyed Jamaica  :)


Oh yes I enjoyed Jamaica but its not as if the programme has not been there several times before and they didn't unearth any scenarios that haven't been discovered before. Meanwhile I feel there is more to the story of Frederick than we were told, and yes it is difficult to search.
James Stott c1775-1850. James was born in Yorkshire but where? He was a stonemason and married Elizabeth Archer (nee Nicholson) in 1794 at Ripon. They lived thereafter in Masham. If anyone has any suggestions or leads as to his birthplace I would be interested to know. I have searched for it for years without success. Thank you.

Do you mean to go back into the ancestry of the Buckinghams?

Yes. e.g for a start where is his birth registration?

One program that held my interest from beginning to end and many of them don't.

I have no research in Jamaica however had an assumption of where it was going ie slave ancestry, what they found surprised me ( and him) and I think because of his mixed emotions it reminded me of researching an ancestor I really decided I didn't  like very much however I changed my opinion the more I researched and found out about him.

Really enjoyed this episode. He seemed genuinely interested in his family history and I think he and his mum might carry on doing a bit for themselves.  I don't think it really matters if you haven't heard of the celebrities, their stories are often very interesting and his definitely was

Yes. e.g for a start where is his birth registration?

I noticed on one of his naval documents his name was George, I think this was his second name. There's a registration for a Frederick George Buckingham at Hendon, 1888. A possibility maybe? I can't bring up the episode on iplayer to check where and when Marvin's Mum said he was born.

I wasn't expecting this episode to be that interesting, but it was good to see the Jamaican side from a different perspective. And it 'blew me away' when the Dunkirk connection came up. Marvin can be very proud of these ancestors on both sides of his family.

I doubt that is him.
1891 1050/130

Shows a Frederick G Buckingham 2 yrs living in Hendon with parents and several siblings. The siblings do not have the same names as Fredís in Workhouse records.

That is if I am looking at the right w/house records though.
