I am interested in anyone researching ATKIN in Stapleford. On the
1881 census Joseph ATKIN was living in Nottingham St Mary aged
50 with his wife Marianne aged 50 born Nottingham with 5 children
Sarah 21, Marianne 17, Mary 12, Edith 10 and Joseph 15.
Missing was Nell who was possibly married at that time. She married
Joseph was born in Stapleford and the only Joseph who is on the IGI
who may fit is the son of Isaac Atkin and Martha and was christened
2 Jan 1831. There are many Isaacs in this town.
Is anyone else researching Atkin and does this family connect in any
way? Any information or records that may help would be very much
Thanks Chris Bartlett
I have some friends who have just become interested in genealogy and I
am trying to help them on their way.
I have no problems getting them started with the LEEBETTER line found in
Greasley 1881 census but am totally at a loss as to where they start
with KLIM from Poland!!
If anyone out there has any connections to LEEBETTER then I will happily
pass on information until they get online, please bear in mind of course
that this is a brand new venture which means little research has yet
The main problem I have is helping them to get started with the Polish
line born Poland in 1920's - does anyone have any idea where we could

I just noticed a posting to Notts. which I answered personally and I
then realized that should sent it for everyone to see.
It involved the name MORLEY my great grandmother was Clara May Morley...
she married an ALLEN and then had Clara May. My grandfather married
and Oldershaw and they moved to Canada from
Nottingham in 1912..

Hi - thanks to everyone who responded to let me know Warser Gate, Nottingham
does still exist. Thanks for the maps too, but no more please. Actually,
my system can't handle graphics too well - bad lines (rural), and graphics
can take up to 15 mins to come through so it's best not to send anything of
a graphic nature. Thanks also Sharon Charles for your info regarding 1871
census. I have a question concerning a marriage in Nottingham -
John HOLLOWAY & Ann HALLAM m 18 May 1833.
I found this in a book titled "Nottingham Marriages" in the Melbourne
Library. Can anyone help me in tracking down the record for this - which

Original message was about an Australian site that not only has some great Australian and international 'stuff' but also has an article on the 'Australian Society of the Lacemakers of Calais'. This has strong links to Nottingham and give some of the history of the time.
The URL's are www.angelfire.com/al/aslc/ This takes you directly to the Lacemakers article. The Australian site is genealogy online by Cora Num address is www.pcug.org.au/~dnum/welcome.htm I missed the /welcome.htm from the end
Sorry, I did say I was half asleep!
Was there not a Lacemakers Guild that might have a collection of
information to help in this matter
of Lace maker movement to other places?
Also could some wonderful person post the Nott Lookup E mail address
Thanks in advance
William Bingham, his wife Hannah ( Hempstock) Bingham and children Mary,
Jane & William Henry came
from Dunham, Clifton, and then supposedly London to America. This
happened about 1836.
The Hempstock family came as well. What was happening to make this
migration happen ?
Any connections, or ideas will be welcome.

Hi, It's early in the morning and I haven't had much sleep but I will see if I can make sense.
I have just found a brilliant (for me) Australian genealogy site called Genealogy online by Cora Num address www.pcuq.org.au/~dnum It has lots of interesting addresses etc and information for those researching Australian branches but after the discussion about lacemakers on the list recently I thought you might be interested in a page about Australian Society of the Lacemakers of Calais. You can access it by clicking on the Genealogy, Family History etc section in the above site or directly at www.angelfire.com/al/aslc/

Hi. I'm new to this list. I'm researching the CURLEY and CAMSELL families
Richard CURLEY, b abt 1855 in Ireland, died 1902 in Worksop. He was the son
of Patrick Curley, b 1802 in Galway, Ireland.
Richard's son, Albert, married Edith CAMSELL, daughter of Robert CAMSELL, a
"woodturner" from Worksop.
Any information about these families would be appreciated.
Thank you so much for the information regarding the breweries/pubs. I will
get some letters sent of in the next few days.
Once again, thank you all, you are a great bunch of folks out there :)

Home Breweries were taken over a few years ago by Scottish & Newcastle
They might be worth contacting or even try Nottingham archives. The
original Home Brewery at Daybrook has now closed.
With reference to The Badger Box, there is still a Badger Box pub at

This issue of Inn the News marks our first anniversary and in these 12
months we have come a very long way. It seems entirely appropriate
that we should once again extend our thanks to all those around the
world who have taken up our various appeals for the information on
which the Index is based. We should also record our gratitude to a
number of long-suffering archivists and librarians whose patience in
answering our questions would have impressed Job. Without them all we
would be nowhere near as far forward as we are and those for whom we
have conducted successful searches - a slowly increasing number -
would still be waiting and searching.
It was gratifying to find that we had been mentioned in a short piece
in the November issue of "Family History Magazine." Unfortunately,
they made a mistake with our e-mail address. So, for any of their
readers who have found this out the hard way, we repeat here the
We continue to receive enquiries about the availability of the Index
on-line and perhaps our first anniversary is the time to outline the
position on this subject.
Despite many suggestions on how to go about this, the fact remains
that no IP we have contacted so far, whether in the UK or overseas, is
willing to host a database as large as we anticipate ours will be upon
completion at anything other than commercial rates.
At present, the cheapest offer we have received, allowing us to retain
complete control over content and presentation, is £250 per month,
with a £250 set-up fee and a 12-month advance payment.
The inevitable consequence of this would be that the Index would have
to be pay-to-view and this would incur additional expenses to enable
us to receive the fees generated. Fees would be in the region of £5
per visit or US $10 to make this work, we would need to have a minimum
of 50 paying visitors each and every month, just to break even.
Another alternative that we investigated was to carry advertising
banners. In order to generate enough revenue to make the site
self-financing we would have to have at least 2,500 of our visitors
access the sponsors, each and every month. Each such visit would
generate a 1 cent fee but payment is delayed so this would assist only
in the longer term. Worse, there has been a recent case of an agency
responsible for these advertisements going bust and leaving creditors
We have said on many occasions - it is almost the first thing on our
home page - that the Index was conceived as a not-for-profit project.
The only fees we have ever received are those for printed reports for
which we have requested £3 or US $5 to cover the printing and postage
While we sympathise with those who would like to browse on their own,
we hope that readers will understand that we simply do not have the
level of finances to pursue this at present. The whole subject is
under constant review and if anything were to change, we will happily
trumpet it from the roof-tops.

On the subject of Submissions and Enquiries from the forms on our
site, during the past few weeks these have increased dramatically.
Unfortunately, a problems has also arisen that we had not anticipated.
A number of our replies to these messages have returned delivery
failure messages and in some cases, this is because the e-mail address
on the original enquiry or submission contained additional characters,
presumably as Spam-defeating devices.

Following last month's request for information about three Royal Naval
vessels commemorated in pub names, Kevin J. Foster has sent us the
following on the Captain, Man of War.
The time period mentioned included two losses of ships named HMS
The first was the third-rate 74 built at Limehouse in 1809, and burnt
by accident 22/3/1813 at Plymouth.
The other, more famous disaster is associated with the iron turret
ship CAPTAIN which capsized off Cape Finisterre 7/9/1870.
This one was built by Laird's and home-ported at Portsmouth. So the
two ships had associations with four ports.
Kevin goes on to say: "If the pub in question was in London near
Limehouse it may be associated with the 1809-1813 CAPTAIN". In fact
the pub we mentioned was in High Street, Poplar, which seems to
suggest this vessel. (For those unfamiliar with London geography,
Poplar and Limehouse are adjacent, the latter being closer to the
There were very busy shipyards all along this part of the Thames, on
both north and south banks, at this time.
Kevin drew on Colledge's Vol.1 and Hawkey's HMS CAPTAIN for this
This month we turn our attention to another popular name for Inns and
Taverns - The Talbot.
Many readers will know that a talbot was a breed of hunting hound and
apart from the tradition that they were spotted and are now extinct,
may not know much more about them.
The relatively few snippets of description are tantalising and paint a
most interesting picture. It was clearly large and very powerful,
since it was used to hunt wild boar. From such references as we can
find, a composite picture suggest that it would have had the form of
perhaps a Staffordshire bull-terrier but of the size of a Great Dane.
Deep-chested, square-headed with very powerful, thick legs. Colouring
was frequently spotted, rather like a Dalmation but plain and patched
colours were also known.
They were highly-prized animals - hardly pets - and a breeding couple
were sometimes gifts at noble weddings. This was a status gift at the
Incidentally, their ferocity in the field could sometimes be
misdirected, as on one occasion a talbot was deliberately set on a
peasant for some transgression and quite literally tore him to pieces.
Finally: Appeal of the Month
We are surprised to find that we have absolutely no entries for
Huntingdon (the city.) Can anyone take pity and remedy this

I'm just over the border in Leics and country people here habitually refer
to cattle (heifers, cows, bullocks) as "beast". So I bet you'll find this
term has something to do with the cattle trade.
