There was certainly a severe epidemic of smallpox in London in 1863,
and probably throughout the country. A letter dated 15 April 1863 to
the Times newspaper refers to the Smallpox Hospital being full, and
'people walking about the streets, courts and alleys with the disease
fully developed, and propagating it in all directions'. The writer
suggests taking over the Queens Bench Prison for a reception house,
and later demolishing the building!
G.g.grandfather William Giles died of smallpox on the ship 'Tyburnia'
en route for Auckland, New Zealand, under the Albertland emigration
scheme, on 24 August 1863. There were 36 cases of smallpox on board,
William being the only fatality. The outbreak of the disease began
with a soldier on board who was returning to his regiment in NZ. The
ship was in quarantine for a month.
Hope this is of interest,

These are an early 17th-century survey of copyhold land ownership in the parish (a map may follow one day, but a lot more research is needed), an index of local references in Quarter Sessions minutes from the same period, and a listing of owners and main occupiers of houses in the town, made in the 1730's.
The page design isn't exactly state-of-the-art, so do let me know if you have any serious problems.

My g g grandfather Richard WHITE was baptised in Southwell in 1798,
son of John and Mary WHITE. He moved to Darrington, Yorkshire at some
stage where he was a farmer/bailiff and died in 1873 having married
Mary (surname unknown who died in 1865) and Sarah GOUGH
who was the mother of my g grandfather, also Richard WHITE.
I am looking for the Southwell Richard's antecedents. Have the parish
records of Southwell been transcribed? if so where can I see/obtain
It is possible that Southwell and Darrington are linked by the estate
interests of the SAVILE/ LUMLEY/SOTHERON families. Does anyone on the

I have a copy of a birth certificate for Mary Jane HOGGET, born Saint
Mary's, Nottingham on January 5, 1855, daughter of John Hogget and Ann
Hogget, late KIPLING, formerly CULLEN, address given as 3 Pomfret
I have so far been unable to connect this to any of my ancestors, but it
was found by one of my aunts, the copy was requested in 1924 so I assume
there must have been a reason for this.
Questions - can anyone suggest how I might go about connecting the
dots? I have the 1881 census for Midlands and East Anglia but can find
no reference for John HOGGET or Ann HOGGET or Mary Jane (but she would
have been 26 at the time and probably married).
Does anyone know where Pomfret Street is (or was) so that I could try to

Yes.... The PLUMTRE family, originally "de PLUMTRE", were of Norman
origins and show up in the very early records of Nottingham and then
right through the ages! There is so much in the Nottingham Date Book
about them, the first reference being in 1173, and then lots of others,
including a mayor of Nottingham in 1437. The Nottinghamshire Archives
has so much information and documents relating to this family! Pure

Please can anyone help me to find out where HENRY BLORE/BLOWER was born?
I have him on the 1841 census:-
Henry Blore -40 -Lace Maker- N
Susannah 41-Lacerunner Y
Henry 15 Y
William 13 Y
Louisa 10 Y
Samuel 6 Y
Rueben 2 Y
So Henry wasn't born in Notts! But he died in 1856--so must appear somewhere
on the 1851 census. But I can't find him!!!
Can anyone help?
They live in and around Radford and Mansfield--I have looked in those places.
Any help would be much appreciated--as I can't go back any further!
