Methodist minister
« on: Thursday 06 September 18 20:52 BST (UK) »
My grandfather was illegitimate and he had nothing to do with his father (or his father had nothing to do with him.)  I was on ancestry.co.uk during the free weekend and it now brings up a potential father.  It doesn't show, as far as I can tell, the source of the information.

The suggested man is Frank Hughes, born 01/01/1890.  I tried searching under Frank and Francis but as I've no clue where he was from I didn't get anywhere.  Obviously I don't know how close the suggested birth date is.

When I was younger I remember being told my great grandfather was connected to the church.  He was later described as being a Methodist minister.  (Is there a way to track down a Methodist minister?)

My great grandmother was Margaret Emma Rossington and she was born 8 Oct 1890.  She lived in Lincoln at the time.  I've know idea how long her relationship with Frank Hughes(?) lasted.  Her first marriage was in 1912 when she was 21 (my grandad was about 3 then).

Can any of you sleuths help?

Thanks

No idea (not know idea)!!  All week I've had to proofread more than once and still I'm writing rubbish like that!

If I have the correct person i.e. Arthur Rossington and his biological father was in the Methodist Church why -although born 1909, why was Arthur not baptised until 1951??

Suzard - the family became friendly with a clergyman at that church and got baptised.  (That info threw me when I came across it but my Dad confirmed it was accurate.). I never knew him as a churchgoer.  I saw the Frank Randall Hughes but had nothing to link him as I could find no occupation.  I'm not sure if people were Methodist ministers alongside their days jobs.  At least the Randall part might help if Candleflame's link proves productive.

Candleflame - I'll take a look at that this evening.

Candleflame - I couldn't find info via that link but they do have an online chat option.  Questions go abroad outside of UK office hours and the librarian from Nebraska wasn't familiar enough with the resources to help.  They've saved my question for next week so fingers crossed for then.

Wow!  That is perfect.  Thank you so much.  Do you think it's an error that Emma Rossington is described as the mother of the defendant?  (Emma Rossington, nee Burr, was Margaret Emma Rossington's mother.)

Thanks Eilleen
