I am afraid I didn't find out much, as I am LNER inclined, here is what I
the grouping of the companies including the G.N. took place in 1-1-1923, &
by the centenary of 1925 the LNER was already 2 years old.
All GNR wheel types 4-2-2, 2-2-2, & 0-4-2, had disappeared before the
grouping, in fact, Flying Scotsman, built April 1922, while still G.N. took
the vacant "A" class that the Stirling Singles held.
Locomotive Engineers of the G.N.R.
1850 - 1866 Archibald Sturrock
1866 - 1895 Patrick Stirling
1895 - 1911 Henry Alfred Ivatt
1911 - 1922 Herbert Nigel Gresley
of course Gresley carried on as the Locomotive Engineer of the LNER until
>From June 1900, classes were as follows :
A = 4-2-2, B = 2-2-2, C = 4-4-2, D = 4-4-0, E = 2-4-0, F = 0-4-4,
H = 2-4-0, G = 0-4-2, H = 2-6-0, J = 0-6-0,
Renumbering of G.N. locos, all GN No.'s increased by 3,000, when
incorporated into the LNER.
That's about all I could find.
Try searching the web for GNR uk, or go to admin(a)onelist.com to become a
member of the LNER mailing list, there are a lot of clues to be had there.

I'm a newcomer to the list and have been searching for the birthplace of my
HENSON ancestors. My GGGrandfather was Alfred Henry HENSON who married a
Harriet KIPPEN -when and where I don't know. Their son, Alfred George
HENSON was married in Edinburgh in 1861 aged 30 at which time his father was
deceased. A search for his parents' marriage in Scotland was fruitless so I
went back to my search in England. Noticing that many HENSONs were from
Nottingham on the IGI , I decided to try here. My grandfather Henry was born
in South Shields, Co. Durham ( as my father and I were) in 1881 but
unfortunately they were not on the census for that year. No one in the
family knows the HENSON background either.
Anyone searching this name or has any suggestions or info. I would
appreciate any help.

As a new subscriber to the list I've been watching with interest for a couple of weeks, now its time to ask for some assistance.
I'm researching the JOHNSON'S from Cuckney, North Notts and Creswell,North Derbyshire from 1800 to 1900.
I would particularly like to know the whereabouts in 1851 of Hannah JOHNSON born Creswell, baptised in Elmton 7th March 1822,
she was at home with her parents in 1841, in 1861 she was newly married and living with her husband William RICHARDSON in Elmton, she stayed there until her death in 1891. I have searched the 1851 census but so far failed to find her, if anyone has any information I would be pleased to know. Maybe she was working somewhere as a house servant.
I believe there is an LDS Family History Centre in Nottingham, which is not
too far from you. Pay them a visit and order the Parish Records (probably
on microfilm) for Ramsey, Hunts, covering the required years. It will cost
you about £2.70 to hire a film for a month.
I suggest you phone the LDS first as these centres are staffed by
volunteers and you will need to know in advance when they are open. (LDS =
Latter Day Saints, the Mormons.)
Could SKS inform me how to trace the parents of William
Godfrey, born Ramsey Huntingdon 1818,he was married to Edith ? abt
1835.and still living there in 1881. His son Charles Godfrey born 1848
married Harriet Boon 28 Aug 1868 in Ramsey and later settled in Radford
Nottingham. Harriet Boon's family also settled in Nottingham, living
next door to Charles,7, knights place Radford.
does anyone have access to the PR of Hayton. I am looking for the birth/baptism of George STANSER or STANCER or maybe STANCHER. this should be around 1775/6. any news of any STANCERs would be welcome.
thanks in advance

I was interested to see your query about the LEAKE family as I have been
researching the same name for some years. However my husband's ancestors
came from Barrow on Soar in Leicestershire and did not move to Nottingham
until the late 19th. century.

Is there anyone at all out there who is researching DUROSE/DEWROSE in
Notts in 1800 to 1890ish?
They were lacemakers, originated in Uttoxeter in Staffs.
If you have nayone, even it isn't a direct line, please contact me, I am
getting very lonely, hardly anyone anywhere is researching this name,
and it is one of my main lines,
Would anyone be aware of a FITZWALTER, ca 1730 Nottingham Wood carver?
Nottingham City Museums has an example of work by this man given in 1922
by a local collector. The collector dated the work to 1739.
Pamela Wood, Keeper of Decorative Arts states: "According to the
accession register, the carving was bought from Middlebrook, carver,
Parliament Street 1890. It was given to the Museum in 1922.
The object is a wooden panel, carved with a design of a vase with
figures, cherubs and scrolls within a gadrooned border. It has been
dated to c.1739. The panel measures 10"high and 21"wide.
The local studies directories refer to a Thomas (Hounds Gate) and a
Francis (Bridlesmith Gate) Fitzwalter in the 1820s -carvers and gilders.
There is also a reference to a Joseph Fitzwalter as a carver and gilder
in 1795. Joseph would seem to be a bit late for our piece, if the date
Other than this information from the directories Local Studies do not
have any other references to the Fitzwalter family."
Please let me know if you can shed any light on the Fitzwalter family
and/or the woodcarving trade.
Ron is too modest - it was a team effort. He also sent me a number of
photographs of Nottingham from circa 1900. These too are available from
the Nottingham page from the link below. If there is any interest in the
photo's I will put up the zip file which has them all in. Alternatively
they can all be viewed and saved individually from the page.
If anyone else has 'stuff' of interest to the list, I am only too happy to
collate it where everyone can get at it.
