How many quirks / traditions have we inherited from our various ancestors?
I just wrote " fingers crossed" and started wondering - wandering off track
I know that the taboo of not putting shoes PARTICULARLY new shoes on the
table has come from my Australian born but pure Welsh grandmother.
The ideas of New Year ; first footing etc comes from my Scots heritage.
Where from comes :
Tossing spilt salt over the shoulder?
Crossing fingers for luck / when telling lies as a child?
How many other inherited traditions do we use without thinking ?
(or believing - but follow anyway)
Are they particular to one area of UK or another?
I do hope I don't offend by going too far from pedigree-type family history

Thank you so very much for the information contained in the 1841 census for the SALTER family . I appreciate your time

Has anyone got any information on Gladys Beatrice Yeo, she was born in Plymouth in 1897. She married William Binmore in 1920 in Withycombe Raleigh, Exmouth and her father was John Yeo - he was a Petty Officer in the RN and unfortunately died before the marriage. I am trying to find out who her mother was.
I have just found a connection to a new name COPP. All the children, well I only have three at the moment, Henry 1832, James 1832 and Sarah 1834 were christened in 'The Point In View Chapel-Independent'. Their parents are Josiah & Eliza Ann COPP nee CABE. But I just wondered if anyone knew anything about the 'The Point In View Chapel-Independent' in Withycombe Raleigh. Infact their father Josiah was christened in the 'Glenorchy Chapel-Independent', Withycombe Raleigh, that was in 1804. So if anyone has any details or anything about these two Chapels, I would be more than interested.

My great grandmother Elizabeth Sanders Elliott (1851) was born in what looks
to be "Kelladiera Hall" in Torquay, her father's address, (the copy is not
very clear). This address does not seem to appear on modern maps of Torquay,
does any ks with access to an old map of the area have any suggestions as to
where this might have been?
I have a close colleague who is entering the 1861 Cornish census details
onto computer for them who informs me he has located this family on the
1861 Cornish census and I can have a copy tomorrow.Person who has
transcribed the entries has however entered the name as League
Incidentally no sign of Mahalah`s death in the death register in the period
1871-1878 When exactly was the second marriage
Later tonight I will email all Brend deaths I have recorded for the period
Sorry I gave the wrong information.
I am looking for a Piper family (possibly a John
and Mary) with a son born near Plymouth in 1757,
his name James Nutter Piper. He was born to an
aristocratic and wealthy family.
James went on to own sailing vessels. He was an
educated man and a navigator. He made voyages to
East and West Indies as well as China and India.
Making port in England as well as eastern ports of
the US, particularly Boston, NY, Savannah, and
He married a "Pennsylvania Dutch" girl Catherine
Vineyard in 1794 in Pennsylvania, PA.
John, his father was in his thirties when James
married. John and Mary lived near Augusta, GA.
Mary could not speak English plainly.
James "Nutter" took his family of 11 children from
GA to Madison Co., IL as early as 1817 maybe
Is anyone familiar with this Piper family from
Plymouth?? Any ideas how I could find out about
the sailing vessels that this family owned. I
would think they would have to be registered in
the Plymouth area???
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly
Thank you -

Hi, Hoskins "DEVON" says the church at Harbertonford is St.Peter, built
in 1860 when Harbertonford became a separate parish.
The church at Harberton is St. Andrew, a splendid 14/15th century building,
but much restored in 1861 and again in 1871/2.

The name doesn't look 'right' somehow. It may be that the name was
originally FARWELL; I have noticed people of that name in east Devon in the
early 18th century, so it might be worthwhile looking for that spelling as
well as FAWELL.
