Hello, I'm seeking information on a Richard Nicholson birth unknown death
July 1610. Married to an Isabel, surname unknown. Richard was a husbandman
of Treswell. Thank you for any help given!
FamilySearch.org now has their Pedigree Research File up and running. This
contains information that has been submitted to the LDS through the internet.
I did see that names that are on the Medieval Files at the Family History
Library are on there too. I had not been able to see the very old records I was
searching on the IGI before.

I would appreciate SKS checking the 1841 census to find Thomas GINEVER
in St. Mary's parish. I would like any details included in this census.
He was living at 17 Drake Street, St Mary's Parish (pg 14) St Paul's
Eccels. District in the 1851 census. Many thanks. Carol
I will be visiting England this May. I want to stay in Nottingham so I

Children from 1881 & 1891 censuses.

1891 census - Pervil St, Nottingham (RG12/2686 Folio 25, Page 43, #264)
81=on 1881 census 91=on 1891 census
1. Robert born 1Q 1868 Clay Cross, Bap Sep 6,1868 St.
2. Emily born 3Q 1870 Spittlegate,LIN -81,91
3. Eustace Herbert born 1Q 1873 Hucknall Torkard,NTT -81,91
4. Andrew born abt 1875 Hucknall Torkard -81,91
5. Albert Henry born 1Q 1878 Clay Cross, DBY died 2Q 1882 -81
6. Elizabeth "Lizzie" born 3Q 1880 Clay Cross -81 *
7. Thomas Frederick born 1Q 1883 Nottingham -91
8. George born 2Q 1885 Nottingham -91
William, who was the informant of his mother's death, is not on 1881 or
* In 1891, daughter Elizabeth "Lizzie" was with with her uncle & aunt -
Thomas & Ann WING in Allington, LIN (RG12/2715 Folio 7,Page 7, #50). In
1891 census, Ann WING was born in GLS: in 1881, Gloucester, GLS. .
Because of his unusual name, I've been able to track Eustace Herbert
(sometimes entered as Herbert Eustace). He was a Bricklayer. He died Aug
27, 1943 at Municipal Hospital, Rotherham.
On Mar 26, 1894, daughter Emily married William Hodgkinson DAWS, a
joiner (son of deceased joiner James Robert DAWS) at St. Paul's, Hyson
Green. Her brother, Eustace, was a witness.
I notice that the Nottingham FHS doesn't have much info beyond 1901.
Would the Nottingham Archives have Parish Registers beyond 1901? If not,
where can I look at them?
Also, I want to look at Electoral Rolls, newspapers for Death Notices,
MI indexes, National Probate Calendars.
I hope to photo the houses & tombstones.
Also, I'm looking for advice re accommodation. I will have a car; but, I
don't want to have to drive into downtown Nottingham each day. All I
want is a clean inexpensive room close to the Archives, library, Notts
FHS, Probate Office etc. I don't require an ensuite bathroom. I was
thinking along lines of Y, Backpackers, Youth Hostel or B&Bs.
When does Daylight Saving commence in England?

Does anyone know of records of staff of prisons (GOAL) in 1860
I am specifically looking for Jospeh Lievers and his wife Emma who both
worked in the prison service. Their son Herbert was a Solicitors clerk.
I am looking to tie these members into my Grainger family.
I have recently joined the list, here is my posting of interests:
Woolley Ollerton, Notts/ Widnes, Lancs.
Yates Warrington/Newton-le-Willows, Lancs.
Williams Wiltshire/ Bedminster, Bristol
Would be interested in exchanging information on the above.
The first group are my family, the second my wife's.
I have a listing of a relative living at Jacksdale Row in the Parish of
Selston in 1830. Where would this be located? I understand they lived most
of their lives in the border towns of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. My
guess is that this is located in Jacksdale. Any help is appreciated.
I wonder whether sks with access to 1851 or 1861 census could do a look up
My husband's gt.gt. grandparents Robert and Mary Baxter, were living in
Colewick St. Sneinton in 1841>
Robert was baptised at Nottingham High Pavement Presbyterian church in 1799
but I am anxious to find the origins of Mary.
Just had a double hard disc failure and lost all my e-mail addresses. Plus the last 5 weeks work. Luckily I had my 5000 Notts MILLS backed up on CD.
Would all my usual contacts please send a sympathetic short message such as "Ha! Ha!" so that I can log their addresses?

Researching some of the FARNSWORTH emigrants, I came across the following
info. in respect of group of Mormon's from the East Midlands and Scotland.
They were to travel on one of the specially arranged 'company ships', for an
assisted passage of ten pounds in 1853 (Liverpool to New Orleans) were given
the following information:
1. That the cost of travel would include tents and various other pieces of
equipment such as handcarts, shovels and hatchets.
2. The following provisions would be furnished for each adult passenger
sailing after 16th January 1853, and half the amount to children under
fourteen and over one year of age, as required by Act of Parliament 1852:
(note, this was after several reported incidents of near starvation caused by
unscrupulous ship owners, and an increase in cholera deaths due to
25 lbs Bread or Biscuit, 20 lbs flour, 37 1/2 lbs oatmeal, 20 lbs rice,
5 lbs sugar, 1 1/4 lbs tea, 1 1/4 lbs salt, and 3 quarts of water daily for
Makes you think, doesn't it! A later report from this group (aboard 'The
Ellen Maria') says that the voyage was so rough they couldn't cook more than
twice a week and mostly ate their food cold.
Does anyone have any further thoughts for me to follow up?
FARNSWORTH One-Name Study
My name is Ray Harvey and I am new to this list.
I am trying to find
the parents / ancestors of Ann ROPER c 1745 who
married Richard MALTBY @
East Leake, Nottingham in 1769. Her parents may
be William & Elizabeth.
In order to find Anns ancestors I am compiling a
ROPER File for Derby &
Nottingham Counties. I have over a hundred ROPER
names so far and I
will share what I have. If list members could
send me any ROPER names
they find in the above area it will certainly help
me and perhaps others
interested in the name ROPER.
Also researching MALTBY - MORRIS
Any help appreciated.

Hi Dave and all on the list,
As far as I know the site is still not up and running. I've have tried to
contact people who I think might have info but no luck yet. I think it is a
case of wait and see. Hopefully it will work soon.
As soon as I have any more info I'll let you know.

Hello listers - can anyone help me by looking on the IGI for children of
William HALLAM and Ann GOFF (m 14 Oct 1805). They married in St Mary's
Church, Nottingham and their eldest dau Ann was baptised there in 1806.
Thanks in advance,
Robyn in NZ.
Hello Rod - well, once again you have helped me. I really am grateful as I
can only get to an LDS once every few months. I am certain the HALLAM
marriage you found is correct - other info supports this!
