I love the alternative payment methods you have! Brilliant and very inventive, sometimes cash can be a blocker whereas something else can be of far more value to us. Feels like stepping back in time and bartering and trading much better system

Thanks, often individual family brickwalls can be very complicated, to the researcher and to others who you are sharing the story with.

Hence why 3 ancestors who were alive in 1841, put "not born in county" and died before 1851 are my 3 main genealogy goal ancestors. All 3 died within 2 and a half years of the date of the 1851 census. 2 of the 3 ancestors died in 1849, if only they had hung on for 2 more years, and the other one just 2 months to live to 30 March 1851.

Be very careful how you get paid HM Revenue may not put the same value on payments in kind as you do, this has lead many people into huge debts with them.

In theory, with every brick wall we solve, we create two more new ones 😂😂😂😂

Of course there will be many records that are not online, and many that probably never will be.

One day we may get London marriages searchable by marriage witness or a PCC wills beneficiary index, that would really help us immensley, but I cannot see such a project happening for years. FreeREG has a few London records but most from Phillimore's. The witnesses on marriages 1754 onwards are worth their weight in gold.

I think I have found a burial for an ancestor that I had been long looking for. Susannah Hollowell, I found a burial in 1826 of her in Bethnal Green in November 1826. The BG burials for Ancestry have 1823-2826 missing but they are on FindMyPast. About 20 years ago I was looking through St Matthew Bethnal green burials and never noticed any gaps, so they must have missed a book.

Susan Fradine, born in Bethnal Green wed Dennis Helsdon in 1784 then Samuel Hollowell in 1814. They lived in Northants for a time then her son moved back to London. Susan was mentioned in an 1820 will of a rellie by marriage, now I think I have finally found her burial.

It doesn't matter where they moved to, some people have surnames that give the places their ancesters lived in circa 1066

The name is pronounced as Helsdon.

Hellesdon is partly in Taverham Hundred in the county of Norfolk, and partly in the City of Norwich.
The name may also be spelled Hellesden.
The name is pronounced as Helsdon.

What a brilliant result! A good friend of mine has been talking about ‘missing registers’ in the big subscription sites for a long time, have a read of his blog it makes interesting reading

Oh so this site has also mentioned the missing burials on Ancestry for Bethnal Green. Seems people have contacted them and they give the usual bog standard reply of the registers are complete when they are clearly not. Sometimes the people you are after are right under your nose all the time.
