Subject: NOTTSGEN-D Digest V99 #332
I am planning to visit the Worksop area in the near future, and would like
to know where/what records are held, and also what the parking arrangements
are. I live within an hours drive of Worksop.
My first task is to try and trace a family in the 1871 Census, in the
Worksop area, and then search local church/chapel records for deaths,
baptisms and marriages, for the period of 1860 to 1877.
I am researching Samuel STOTT, Engine Driver in Pits, (born in Haywood,
Lancs, not yet traced) who moved to Worksop, sometime before 1864, and
subsequently moved to South Wales between 1877 and 1881. He had 10 children,
6 (maybe 7) of whom, according to the 1881 census, were born in Worksop,
Luke (1864), Elizabeth (1866), Sally (?), Jennet (1873), Jenkin (1875),
Gwendoline (1877). His first wife is thought to have been Harriet PRESSLEY,
and his second wife has not yet been traced. He took a third wife in Wales.
I think his first wife died between 1860 and 1864, and he remarried about
John Wilkinson - from Yorkshire (i.e. - a Scotsman with the generosity

The 1891 Census for Nottingham, to which I have access through our local LDS, is presented "As Enumerated". That is, one must know the address or at least the Parish in order to find, with some degree of ease, the name of the person / family being researched. However, it seems to me that I have read that there are copies of the Nottingham 1891 Census that are indexed by Surname. Is this true, and if so, how can one obtain access to it???
I am trying to locate a Charles Garner (36ish), wife Sarah Ann (34ish) and family on the 1891 Census for Nottingham in order to find other family members. I know they were living in Brewitts Yard in 1887 as my grandmother (their daughter) was born there and later (1904) married in Nottingham giving Rancliffe Terrace as her residence, but I could not find them on the 1891 microfiche that is available to me.
I look forward to your reply.
Hi Bev and others,
I live in Australia and, when I buy goods or services from the UK, I always
forward funds in pounds sterling. There are several ways of doing so. I
don't use a credit card or the internet, but I could use:
* transfer funds to the UK people's bank account (too expensive),
* buy an international draft through some financial institution, or
* find a local (UK) intermediary.
The cheapest and simplest way is to pay the fee for an international draft,
which is a cheque bought at your local bank, in their local currency and
drawn on a bank in their local country. It pays to shop around as the fee
varies from bank to bank, anything from AUD$8 (Suncorp-Metway Bank) to
AUD$20 (Commonwealth Bank). Needless to say, I choose the AUD$8 option.
Well, I've left it as long as I could, but I'm really going to have to unsubscribe from
the group for now. :-(
I must have been hanging around for over a year and a half, and my Nottsgen digests are so
familiar that I'm going to feel lost without them. However, tides and new babies wait for
no man (or woman) and when the little one arrives (either the 11th or 18th August we
think) then the computer will - for once - have to take a back seat.
I've learned a lot from the list and it's subscribers, even though I had been "doing the
tree" for over 10 years prior to subscribing, and I've made many friends through this
I would like to think that once we've got our sleeping patterns organised I'll have time
to start reading digests again - perhaps before Christmas? ;-) I don't think I'll be able
to stay away too long!
Good luck to eveyone in their researches!

Yes... you are on the right lines of thought.
1. check the burial records at that church between 1609 and 1634
2. check for marriages for him
3. if so, check for his children here too
4. find his brothers and sisters too
The whole point being that family *groups* are easier to identify than
individuals. Checking that an individual "disappears" is not easy as it
could be that you just can't find a subsequent record, but if a family
group disappears then you have corroborating evidence. Even if the rest
of the family group remain here in subsequent records, you can make an
educated guess that your man really did disappear, because if he had
stayed here, then it is likely that he *would* appear in the records.
Would just like to throw in my two-pennyworth here,hopefully to assist my
fellow Canadians and our US friends.
I recently called the Basford Register Office to enquire about correct
pricing of certificates, and as previously reported on the list, they are 6
pounds and 50 pence.
However, you must add 99 pence for return air mail postage, making a total of
7 pounds 49 pence.
The lady I spoke to emphasized that it must be that exact amount, do not
round up to 7.50, otherwise the government wouldn't know what to do with the
extra penny. I had to smile to myself !!!!
Hope this helps.

The Law has ever had any church in England or Wales register births.
Churchs, then as now, record Baptisms or Christenings.
Having said that, the law did require marriages to take place according to
the rites of the Church of England. There were only 2 exceptions; one for
Jews & the other for Quakers who kept their own rites & registers.
The major change occured in 1837 when marriages at Register Offices and
licenced non-conforming Churches became legal. Not all such Churches
applied for a licence.
Hope this helps.

I would love to hear from anyone who has an interest in any of these names.
My ISP is changing systems so I have not been able to send or

I'm new to the list and have a question perhaps more suited for a more
general geneaology list than this, but here goes:
My Clifton family history is fairly complete from 1635 (when Thomas Clifton
immigrated to the US) to the present. Until recently, all I knew of said
Thomas was the year he immigrated, where to, on what ship, and that he was
born ca. 1610 -- possibly in Nottinghamshire.
In the last week I've found a Thomas Clifton of Nottinghamshire christened at
St. Mary the Virgin church on 17 Sep 1609 -- the only Thomas Clifton I've
been able to find record of matching the ca. 1610/Nottinghamshire criteria.
While my instincts tell me this fellow just may be the one I've been seeking,
I'm concerned that it may be next to impossible for me to prove the
connection unless I'm able to conclude that he "disappeared" from
Nottinghamshire after 1634.
I welcome any advice on linking immigrant ancestors to the "old country."

Yesterday I went grubbing around in graveyards looking for rthe graves
of my seven times great grandparents and associated relatives. I was
very lucky and found them, in legible condition and well cared for
(Bramshall Parish Church in Staffordshire). On one of them was the
"In my wifes grave I am laid and by my sun (sic)have my daugh left
behind. I hope she will (or with?) us forever find "
The rest is now buried under the ground, bevcause the ravestone has sunk
slightly since it was put there 250 years ago - it is the grave of james
DUROSE, a carpenter who died in 1764.
My question is what does "daugh" mean? I don't think it means
daughters, because there are no other abbreviations, and if the
stonemason has missed out a letter he has added it above, for example
the name Jmaes appears as Jame with a small "s" at the top.
Could it be a misspelling of door? Some of the spellings in the
graveyard are very creative by modern standards, and a stonemason would
be used to the word daughter and so might thiunk door was spelt
Or is this an old word I have never come across.
I don't know if James had any daughters by the way, I just know that one
of my ancestors of the correct period had a brother James, and assume
this to be him.
Thanks in advance

The following is copy/pasted from my web site:
RUESCH International Monetary Services, Inc., are recommended by many
people as providing the cheapest and most convenient way of sending
small payments abroad from USA and UK. In USA they have offices in
Washington, D.C. New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. Phone
1-800-424-2923 and tell them what currency and how much of it you
want and they will inform you of the cost. The conversion fee is
three dollars. You then mail them a cheque for the dollar amount and
they will send you their cheque in whatever currency you have
requested in return.
Their UK address is: RUESCH International, 18 Saville Row, London
W1X 2AD (tel: 0800 424292). You must send them the money as a UK
cheque or postal order. They will not accept credit card payments.
Conversion fee (when I last heard) was 3.00 pounds per currency issued
by them. They will supply you with a cheque drawn on a bank in the
following currencies among others: US, Aus, NZ dollars, S African
in Luton, Beds, UK.

Found today in the index of Archdeaconry wills at Nottingham
Margaret Farnworth, widow, of Nottingham . Will dated 1764 Proved 1765,
''Son to forfeit share of estate if he marry Ann Taylor (£2000 bond) ''
''having as well by his late dear father in his lifetime as also by me
been frequently admonished against keeping company with or marrying the
said Ann Taylor and told of the ill consequences that would attend him
if he did''
See Records of Nottingham vol vii page 11 for reference to Ann Taylor.
Feb 3 1772 Paid Richard Bonington, gaoler for branding Ann Taylor in the
hand at the last assizes , Five shillings.
Bleeding Ann Taylor one shilling.
Paid the midwife for delivering of Ann Taylor , a prisoner, five
Seems like a case of 'lock up your sons' Ann Taylors about

Can anyone help?
I have copies of the marriage records of my gt gt gt grandfather -
Christopher Nicholson, Farmer. The first says Christopher Nicholson of the
Parish of Dunham and Mary Spyve on 12 April 1810. The second is in the
Parish of Babworth where Christopher is named as Widower of the Parish of
East Retford to Mary Rolls on 20 November 1827. I think Mary Spyve is my
ancestor. Has anyone seen a record of baptism or death of Christopher or
Mary Spyve in the parish records for the areas mentioned? Are there any
Spyve's out there? One of the witnesses to the 1810 wedding was Caleb
Nicholson, obviously a relative of Christopher's. Caleb is an unusual name
so does it 'ring a bell' with anyone?
Any information would be welcome.
I agree with you Jamie
