It is a bit of a long shot but but I am trying to get in touch with a
Martin Neeham, who sometime in the past, posted his family tree on
Ancestor.com. He has since changed his E-mail address. Eight of my own
family tree members are in his, and I hoped he might be able to help me.
I have assumed that he is or was somewhere in the
Derbys/Lincs/Notts/Leics. area as the family is the family tree is based
there. Can anyone help?
Thank you in desperation

My name is KEN DAVEY. I am searching for any gen on the surname of
HOULT. Particularly LEONARD HOULT born in Beeston, Notts, who was
married to MAY (maiden name unknown). LEONARD HOULT was killed in in
action Flanders, France 1918.
Sorry I can't provide any further information,
I've learnt from David Millott - thankyou David - that my Lamb folk were in
Brickyard Lane, Farnsfield in about 1840-1850 - would SKS please advise -
was Brickyard Lane near brickworks??
was Brickyard Lane primarily for the poorer members of the community??
does Brickyard lane still exist??
what sort of housing exists in Brickyard Lane??
does anybody have pictures of Brickyard lane??
what else can be said about Brickyard Lane??
Robert - in Ferny Creek Victoria - a long way from Brickyard Lane.
researching Lambs in Farnsfield and Fotherly from ???
Forgive me for an ad but I think it is warranted. I see this sort of thing
daily (people losing data). I know this is a genealogy group and I am
possibly breaking one or two "rules", but if I could share one thing with
you it would be this product. All of us I am sure either don't back up
properly, or if we do, I bet it isn't as much of a timesaver as this. You
all fit into one category - you have either lost data before - or if not
there is one thing guaranteed - you will.
Before I begin, I have nothing to gain, and am no way related to the
software or author I am about to recommend - I am just a VERY happy user.
The software is called Mr Mirror and you can get it from
It is mailware - it doesn't cost any money - just an email to the author to
let him know you are using it.
Now - what it does for me:
I have started some study this year and very wary about losing my documents.
Mr Mirror was recommended to me and I have set it up so that every hour, it
automatically makes a backup copy of:
programs and their settings
What is more important to the online genealogist than these??
The first time it runs it takes a while ( as long as it would to actually
copy this stuff), from then though, every time it runs it just copies the
stuff that has changed. It does it in the background - you don't even know
it is running.
You can set it up to do this as often as you want - one hour is probably
overkill but I like it. You can obviously also select how much or little
you want to back up. A different hard drive to back up to is optimal but
if you don't have one, then same one would suffice.
As they say on telly - Do yourself a favor!!

I don't think this is strictly correct. I believe all census since 1801
have involved schedules of individuals in the preparation. The problem (as
far as we are concerned) is that the schedules were destroyed after the
statistics had been prepared.
In fact some schedules have survived and can be found in various random
archives. Those which had been discovered up to 1980 were included in the
second edition of the Gulliver Press/Federation of Family History
Societies' publication "Census Returns 1841 1851 1861 1871 on Microfilm"
(ISBN 0 906428 05 X or 0 9505986 9 0)
For Instance, it list the Bodleian Library, Oxford as holding the original
schedules for various Oxfordshire parishes. From those surviving it appears
the those to 1821 included Heads of Household only, 1831 was for all

It was statistical only. The first to list names was 1841, although
there were local censuses for tax purposes at earlier dates for some
places, usually with very limited information.
in Luton, Beds, UK.
Was the first official census in 1801 just
statistical or did it give names? If only
statistical, when was the first one that listed heads
of households? Thanks, Randy Ingham

In following my ancester's CARSON, I found my great-great grandmother was
Sarah NUTTALL married John CARSON 1835 in Mansfield. I found other members
of the family, in checking on baptisms.
John NUTTALL married to Patience
Charles NUTTAL married to Amy
Abraham NUTTAL married to Anne
John NUTAL married to Frances
John NUTTALL married to Laury
Charles NUTTAL married to Amelia
William NUTTALL married to Anne
This is the first time I have seen anyone searching the surname NUTTALL.
So I thought I would just take the chance and see if the names were
familiar to you.

My copy is too poor to scan for you. And I have another list that came out
of a Nottingham Family History Soc. journal - I'm sorry, it's undated. The
title is: PATENTS LODGED BY NOTTINGHAMSHIRE RESIDENTS AT THEPATENT OFFICE,
LONDON 1884, and it was written by Grant Harrison, 10 The Close, Muswell
Avenue, Muswell Hill, London N10 2ED. I'll search them both tonight for
