Hi, I am working on the LEE'S. John LEE b abt 1775 Cheschire, Eng. Is
a brother to Edward LEE b abt 1776 md Agnes HOUSTON b abt 1782.
England. They traveled to Richmond, Quebec, Canada. Edward and Agnes
had 10 ch, some born in England, or maybe all of them. I'll send more
info later if you think you connect in any way.
It is always very interesting to find out how people organize their
filing systems. I would like to tell you about the system I have for non
electronic filing. There is always information in 'transit' to you computer
and also hard copies or documents that are in use.
I use colour coding for my four grand parents and any of their
ancestors. The main colours available in Australia are yellow, pink, blue
and green. I use the natural / buff colour for my general information.
This is a great time saver. If you are doing a spouse's family as well then
a little ingenuity is required. I use coloured strips stuck onto very pale
manila coloured folders. These coloured strips are also put on the spine
area so that they can be identified easily if the file is lying in a stack.
On the electronic front I use a genealogical program (The Master
Genealogist) that allows me to enter copious amounts of information. There
are many good programs that have this feature. My library, including books,
CDs, stored indexes on floppies and information sheets are listed in a data
base program. The information is under their appropriate headings, i.e.
CD-ROM, and I keep a hard copy for my convenience.
When dealing with general information and records don't over look your
word processor. By using the table facility on any good word processor you
can sort by various 'fields'. If your budget and computer skills are
limited it is better to invest in a good word processor and learn to use all
its wonderful features. You can use you word processor as a data base type
record keeper. The secret in this type of recording is organizing your
'files' or 'folders'. Make your main files or folders and use them to store
sub headings. This will group sets of information together and make it
easier to find. It is very simple to copy and past to other documents.
You could have LIBRARY as a main folder. Under this folder you could
then list, BOOKS, CD-ROM, MAPS, GENERAL INFORMATION. Set up your tables in
a way that suits you but here is a suggestion. BOOKS could have columns
with such headings as 1. Subject (this could be people, places, history or
indexes); 2. Make another three columns with more details of the contents,
remembering that the first word will be able to be sorted into alphabetical
order; 3. years covered if applicable; 4. Don't forget the details of the
publication including name, author and ISBN number.
This is for you and it is important that you set out your records in a
way that suits your needs. You can get lost of good ideas from others but
in the end it will be up to you.

Hello Chris, I saw your name in the Cheshire Index and must email you to see
where your family
come from. I don't think it matters a great deal as there were not many
BLEASE families and a link could take a while to establish further back.
However my BLEASE family were Butchers in TARVIN three miles about from
Chester. In 1688 JOHN BARKER (from OSCROFT) married MARGARET BETTS and had a
daughter MARGARET BARKER who married ROBERT BLEASE in 1715.
ROBERT BLEASE who was a butcher by trade, had daughters Margaret, Mary and
Elizabeth BLEASE, before MARGARET died 1.10.1730. Of these four children,
nothing is known of ROBERT BLEASE b.1729. Mary married Robert LIGHTFOOT at
Chester CAthedral in 1747 - Margaret BLEASE m.1742 to
JOHN WILKINSON and ELIZABETH BLEASE m.1742 at Chester to PETER BOSTOCK
ROBERT BOSTOCK (son of Peter BOSTOCK and Elizabeth BLEASE) married ELIZABETH
TARVIN IN 1770..........There is possibly a line from ROBERT BLEASE out
I HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF HISTORY THAT I COULD SHARE WITH ANY BODY ON THESE
LINES and of course I would LOVE TO DO SO...Thelma (Bostock) Birrell in

I'm searching for a JAMES COCK (1767-1838) who married an ANN (NANCY)
BOWKER and lived at Haughton Green but may have come from Cheshire. As the
Cheshire IGI is so sparse, could anyone help with parents and place of birth
Thanks in not-very-hopeful anticipation!!

I am looking for connections to the Houghs who came from the Frodsham area
& some of whom still live in the Norley area. I will not list all the
children except my own direct line.
Thomas Hough married Sarah
William 1803-64 married Hannah Harvey 5 Feb 1828
Thomas Hough 10 Nov 1837- married Alice Peers 29 Dec 1864
Thomas Hough 8 May 1877-12 Dec 1951 married Alice Nixon 19 Jun 1899
Arthur Edward Hough 10 Jan 1901-31 Dec 1959 married Ruthie Morgan 28/6/
John Morgan Hough 30Oct 1927-
William was a farmer, the younger Thomas & his son were butchers. Thomas
had a shop in Weaverham. I have an idea that the elder Thomas died abroad,
his widow Alice married a Richard Lewis. Arthur married in Canada but
returned to the UK about 1937.

Welcome to the list. I've been researching several lines of my mother's
family in the Romiley, Bredbury and Woodley areas (for about 20 odd years)
and have got to know the area quite well. What Lee and Ashton names are you
looking for? I don't recollect seeing the others in censuses or parish
registers etc. but that's probably only because I wasn't noticing them.

I can't really help Alan, but I recognised the name Peover, where (I think)
my KINSEYs hailed from. Is there a local expert in that area that you know
of? I am trying to link my last known ancestor, Israel Kince, who we believe
moved from Cheshire (and married and settled with Martha BURROWS ) to Old
Any advice as to finding the link?

Technically yes what you have is still GRO copyright, however if you
could change or add to the format or content then perhaps it would not
constitute an infringement. However, I understand that the PRO & GRO
are quite amenable to this sort of thing, so the easiest way may well
be to ask for their approval, and then I think they ask that you show
that you show who the copyright belongs to and that you have their
permission - reasonable straight forward I gather.

Just to introduce myself as a brand new member of this list and a complete
Newbie as far as Family History goes.
I'm Netty and although I've been thinking of tracing back my roots for many
years I've only just started to look back into my family history because of
the recent death of my grandma, Emma Hackney Nee Crowley who lived in Romily
and Marple, Cheshire.
So far having just great grandparents to present day on my list.
Although currently living In Lincolnshire I was born and bred in Marple.
So far I'm interested in the following names: CROWLEY, ASHTON, LEE,
BRADSHAW, CORBETT and possibly HORROCKS in Marple, Bredbury/Romily, Ancoats,
If anyone's come accross any of these names or is researching in those areas
I'd be very pleased to hear from you.
I have received an enquiry from a contact in Florida which I am unable to
answer and wonder if anyone else on the list can help.
My copy of "A Hundred Years of British Breweries" lists George Bell & Sons as
the proptieors of the Tabley Arms Brewery in Peover. My contact in Florida -
John H Bell vistec3d(a)peganet.com - has a George Bell as a great, great,
grandfather who was a publican who lived at one time in Edgerly Dean,

Dear Readers of the list,
Having had such helpful assistance from Denise on 30th October with MI's at
Bromborough I am now wondering if there is someone "out there" who may have
access to the St Lawrence Church at FRODSHAM? (I think from memory that is
the name of the church on top of the hill.) I am seeking the MI's for the
MANIFOLD family from 1708 to the mid 1850's.
Actually, the most important entry for me is WILLIAM MANIFOLD of Kingsley
who died 26th December 1762 (too much plum pudding?) who, it has been
suggested, is buried under the "new extension to the church" (alterations
1800's?). From memory the alterations are on the North side of the church.
Although I know he is buried at this church I cannot "find" him, except on
I have a record of William Manifold of ALVANLY (his son I think) who died
12th February, 1762.
Any advice will be welcome-
Elizabeth Manifold Landy
