I am looking for the family of Samuel Venables who was the Master of the
Chester Bluecoat School 1802-1848. I now have his will. He is
mentioned in two old articles one of which is the Cheshire Sheaf, and it
mentions a "monument to him in the cemetery near the little stone
bridge." His wife was Sarah and he had nine or ten children, one was
my GGGF, George Samuel Venables. The only other child I have any real
details on is Sarah who married William Muckleston. They were very
musical and at least George Samuel was a church organist. Have a
flimsy clue that Thomas might have been as well.
In spite of some years of searching I seem to be the only person related
to him. With ten children there must be some other descendents. Also
would anyone know if the monument in the cemetery is still there.

please could someone with acess to the 1841 MANCHESTER CENSUS
look-up any family of TREVORS living there at the time..... im not sure what
area of they would have been though.
Carole, Michael Egerton should be able to answer your query. He is doing a
One Name Study of the Egerton family. His address is Ashridge, Edgelands
Lane, Ipplepen, Newton Abbott, Devon, TQ12 5UF. Regards, Lyn
Does any lister know where the Egertons from Oulton Hall had other estate(s) down south. I think they may have had something in Buckinghamshire(Ellesborough where ever that may be) as they family bequeathed money for an alms house there similar to one in Little Budworth. I am trying to find out where my Billingtons disappeared to for 10+ years. He was a farm labourer and I wonder if he took some of his workers down to one of his other estates.
Has anyone acess to St.John's Parish in Chester's marriage & bapt. records???
I ordered them through LDS Library and was unable to read most of the copy.
Here's what I need: Any Peacocks bapt:1780-1810. One really bad one was 1792
Son to James & Elizabeth Bapt Dec.25(Could read son's name or date of
birth).Another was Ann 1796 (Couldn't read birth date)
Also need marriage of James Peacock & Elizabeth ? 1780-1791. Would
appreciate ANY help. Lilabeth USA
Could sks with access to the 1891 census mind doing a look up for me. I am
searching for JOHN AND CAROLINE WRIGHT (NEE CHAMBERS) possibly living at 28
Fence Street Hurdsfield Cheshire.
I'll be eternally grateful.
Does anyone have any connection to Samuel, a joiner, and Elizabeth WOOLLEY
who were at Wheelock Road, Sandbach in 1881 with 4 children, and their niece
Mary BIRCHALL, born Sandbach (1869/70), aged 11.
It is Mary that I am particularly interested in. My G Grandmother was Mary
Ellen BIRCHALL. I have her marriage certificate, on which no father's name
is given. The only Mary Birchall I can find on the 1881 in Cheshire, with
no parents, or mother only is the above, and the age fits with her age at
death and marriage. I remember from previous correspondence that the
father's name is put on the marriage cert, even if he is dead, so the
absence of the name suggests she was illegitimate.
Without the 1901 I am stuck again. I see they are at the testing stage - do
you think they might try and sneak it online over the bank holiday ?
I'm going to drive myself absolutely insane trying to find the birth of my
Grandfather, Harry Porter. I know some people have access to different
Electoral Rolls. Is that something that people in the US can buy? I can't
seem to find anywhere on the Internet that offers them for some reason. I
think if I could buy a few from different years and get the addresses for
them, then MAYBE? I'll be able to find them when the 1901 comes out or even
on an 1891 census.

Not quite what you are after but it may be of interest to anyone doing a one-name study there are 27 HALL/s on the London copy of the National Roll of the Great War (Archive CD Books)
The National Roll of the Great War, was published by the National Publishing Company shortly after the Great War and I believe compiled in a similar way to the war memorials (relatives sending in details of loved ones they had lost).
It was supposed to have National coverage but I believe only 14 volumes were published.
Archive CD Books have 5 volumes of this series available on CD they are Salford (Reference #0182), Manchester (Reference #0463w), Leeds, Yorkshire (Reference #0163), London (Reference #0564)
One example of these entries is :-
HALL, C.P., Corporal, R.G.A.
He volunteered in September 1914, and after completing his training was drafted to the Western Front, where he was in action at Ypres and in other sectors. In 1915, he proceeded to Salonika, and took part in the Balkan campaign, during which he
contracted fever and was invalided home. After receiving hospital treatment he was discharged in 1918, as medically unfit for further duty. He holds the 1914 Star, and the General Service and Victory Medals.
5A, Willowbrook Road, Peckham, S.E.15.

I have just rejoined with my new e-mail address, but cannot use my old one (elaine.ainsworth(a)btinternet.com) to unsub it. I guess someone may need to do so manually, but this will at least explain any bounced mails.

Hoping SKS my be able to tell me if this Underwood Villa stills exists. On my g-grandparents marriage cert. it says my g-grandmother Emma Williams widow
was living at this Villa in West Street. Does anyone know anything about this Villa as my g-grandmother had one young son at the time she married my g-grandfather James NEWTON who was a widower (with three daughters) living at Chetswode Street, Monks Coppenhall. Is Chetswode Street still in existance?
Any assistance greatly appreciated.

A public apology to Brett - to whom I've emailed offlist too. My Thomas
Turner and Elizabeth Ibbotson marriage at St. Thomas's was in 1880, so just
outside the dates covered.
Thanks for the clarification.
NO, of course you should not throw out your old BVRI (British Vital Records
Index), if you have upgraded why not see if your local Local Studies Library
would like your original or your local Family History Society, or even post a
message offering it to someone else who cannot justify the cost of the CDs.
I am sure there are many out there who would like a copy even though it has
now been superseded, the data is still relevant.
