I would appreciate a look-up for Northwich, Cheshire, on the 1841 census.
Is there a Thomas HODKINSON listed?
Is Thomas HODKINSON married to a Mary BENNET?
What is Thomas HODKINSON's occupation and if he was married to Mary BENNET---did they have any children?
Thomas HODKINSON's father's name was also Thomas HODKINSON. The father was a salt dealer in 1873. Is there any listing for the father's wife? Children?
Any information on the above names would be greatly appreciated. This family has been quite a mystery for years---especially when they lived in Northwich.

Hi List, I am new to your list, but I am on others.
I would like some kind person to help in any way with this family please.
I am looking for in the main; Wyatt - wife ?, John - wife Margaret, Enoch-
wife Margaret and later Sarah, Reuben - wife Martha and later Sarah (Beeley,
or any spelling there of). They seem to be from the Dunkinfield, Marple,
Mottram in Longdondale, Staleybridge, Stockport areas. I have lots of info'
after 1871, but need the earlier details if poss' (however I do have birth
and marriages dates for both Enoch and Reuben) .
I say any spelling because Enoch and family are on the 1881 Cen' as Bailey
and on the 1901 Cen' Enoch and his son Ernest have swapped places. Ernest
has been written in as being older than his dad (and that is on the original
doc not a transcript. Shades of the 1987 Movie 'Like father, like son '
As I say any help would be appreciated thank you.

RE The Gardening Notes
If you cannot find an owner or link to this book , it may be of value to the
Museum of Gardening History in Lambeth. This is a wonderful museum and one
of those hidden gems. I had read the Phillipa Gregory novels about the
Tradescant family, followed some Google links and found the Museum. A visit
there was a highlight of my last trip to England. I live in sub tropical
Brisbane Australia but have a love of English Gardening history and garden
design and read avidly about the Plant Hunters who risked life and limb to
discover new plants to bring to the great gardens. Discovering the tomb of
William Bligh of Bounty fame and Governor of New South Wales in the Museum
was an added bonus.

Have I got this right? You are looking for Wyatt, John, Enoch and Reuben
with surname of BEELEY/BAILEY? Not the surname WYATT?
I have ancestors with surname WHYATT, which became WYATT (as per ship
Peruvian's manifest in 1887). My great-grandfather John WHYATT was born in
1849 Stockport, but he didn't have any brothers by those forenames.
Unfortunately I've no idea of any nephews g-gf may have had. Our WHYATTs
are connected to surnames HADFIELD, SMITH, TRAVIS and possibly BARLOW.
Margaret Brennan, who use to post to this list and the Cheshire/Lancashire
boards, also has a WHYATT (and CROCKETT, I believe) connection to Stockport,
around the time frame you are looking at.
All the best,
Toni ... Ontario Can.
If some kind sole could do a look up for me it would be most appreciated

Under the UK Freedom of information act it was expected that it may be
possible to access the original files for commendations, awards etc. However
I have received recently a reply from the Home Office which informed me
that the actual files concerning the awards will remain confidential. It
would have been nice to have been able to read what the actual
recommendations made to the King/Queen actually said and also what the
King/Queen wanted to know about the incidents etc. Now we will never know.
Thanks and well done to all involved in making yesterday's Fair such a
As last year, there were a number of relevant and useful stands including
the Cheshire-L stand - but mainly it is the chance have face-to-face
discussions with people offering such a concentration of helpful expertise
and experience, not to mention putting a few faces to names, which makes a
day like that well worth a 200-mile drive to get there.
Could any one look up the family of James Wellings and Elizabeth in the 1841, 1851, and 1861 census.
I have James Wellings christened 1805 in Liverpool, Lancashire, married to Margaret Chidlow 1829 in Malpas, Cheshire. Margaret died 1837 after giving birth to 2 sons -- Joseph 1832 and Thomas 1837. Thomas died in 1838. James Wellings then married Elizabeth Edge in 1839. I am trying to put together the families of James Wellings. In 1871 I can find an Elizabeth Wellings in Shropshire -- she is listed as widow of blacksmith -- which I think James may have been as James' father was blacksmith.
Great - found interesting information

Does anyone have the burial records or stone inscriptions for the parish
church at Delamere? I am specifically looking for William Walker died 1907 and
Elizabeth Walker 1917.
On a tour of the churchyard two years ago I found so many of the Walker
graves but did not find my great grandparents.
I am also interested in anything on a Mary Walker died probably 1828 or 29.

I also have a John Barlow who married my great great grandmother Ann Lewis
of Crowton at St John's Norley in 1853.
This was her first husband. John Barlow died in 1854 and she married my
GGrandfather Joseph Clarke at Witton in 1856. .

Hello Dave, So far as I am aware, the land registry is a more modern invention, for £2 you can download the details of any properties registered file copy, its supposed to speed up the transaction process.
A few years back I bought some woods of the forestry comission, eventually the land registry file copy arrived, it gives a map of the property and details of any charges on the property etc. However it does not give much away in a historical context, I too contacted them, they said they could dig deeper if I dug deeper into my pockets!!
