Sorry to waste your time, but would someone mind sending me an off-list confirmation that this message has reached the list? I sent a test message an hour or so ago and didn't receive it from ROOTSWEB, so I guess something is wrong with the system.
I am trying to get some info about a Joseph Henry Pike, he came from a hamlet or town called Linton Doddy, Gloustershire ,which borders on Wales. He boarded the sailing ship "Mary" on the 22nd of July 1828 for Tasmania. The ship left from NEWPORT.
He settled in Tasmania and worked as a Surveyor and was given about 125 acres of land in Little Swanport (Swansea) and named it "Linton Doddy", after his home town in U.K.
Is there a mailing list for Gloustershire ???

Would anyone be able to look in the St. Catherine's Index for the birth of a
George WARD in 1881/1882 to John and Elizabeth WARD. Our George WARD born
Nottingham, died in South Africa in 1930 aged 48 years.
I have actually had someone look for George WARD
in 1891 in Nottingham and have come up with a suitable candidate with the
right parents and rough age but I am not certain of my George's birth date
which would tell me if I have the right man. I would love to say yes that
they are one and the same. This man though was
married there in Nottingham I am told and had two children and It would be
rather rash to adopt him if he is actually no real connection to my South
African George WARD's family. Dates do fit as his S.A wife was much younger
than he was.
The way I found him was by looking at suitable parents (John and Elizabeth)
from 1881 and seeing if the couple had a son called George born in the right
year. This couple did but what if his parents were young and not together in
1881? Has anyone any advice?
This problem has been worrying me for over two years so I believe the
index could possibly clear it up once and for all.
Hoping someone can help.
Anything welcomed on any Felix ALLEN and family.
Anything from 1840 to 1880. Have access to the 1881
Many thanks, Helen

I am trying to trace Albert Lindley b about 1834 in Greasley and his wife
Ann(Saxton). They married in 1855 in Selston Parish Church and had a daughter
in the same year. If anyone has either the 1861 or 1871 census and could
please lookup this family
Many Thanks Diane
I have just obtained a copy of my maternal grandparents 1927 marriage
certificate. It lists my grandmothers age as 45 years and her father as Henry
Watkins (deceased). The 1881 British Census lists a Henry Watkins married to
Eliza Watkins with five children living on Clarence Terrace, Sneinton,
Nottingham. This is definitely the right location but I cannot recall my
grandmother ever mentioning the fact that she had any brothers or sisters.
She certainly never visited them.
I was wondering if some kind person with access to the 1891 census do a
lookup for me to see whether Henry Watkins family had increased to include a
Mary (Polly) Watkins.
I am researching the following family names - and derivatives:
BANTON & LEAVERS - Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire
BULL - Hampshire and Isle of Wight
COLLIS - Hampshire and Somerset
HOPKINS - Hampshire
KNIGHT & TAYLOR - Somerset
MARTIN - South Gloucestershire and Bristol
MOODY, PERKIS, PUNCH VINCENT & WILLIAMS - Isle of Wight
PURCHES - Hampshire and Sussex
STRETTEN - Sussex
TOMASIN - Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Hampshire and Isle of Wight
If I can help you or you can help me please get in touch. There is a
'family tree' of my established ancestors available from one of the links
in the Family History section on the http://www.clevedonjazzclub.co.uk web
site and I maintain a database record of previously unsuccessful contacts
Can someone with some *spare* time please do an electoral lookup for me?
Looking for William HOLLOWAY at Bank House, Post Office Square, Beeston 1909
and prior, and
Charles Nelson HOLLOWAY, 43 Dovecote Lane, Beeston 1896 - 1920 period.
With grateful thanks to whoever can do this,

PS - William died in March 1909 - would his wife Julia then take his place
on the electoral roll? She died in 1914.

John Walker and his wife Lydia Moody, came to Selston Notts in the mid 1870s
from Lincolnshire. 3 children, George, Louise, and John born at South
Scarle, and 3, Frederick, Charles and Alice born at Fulstowe.
John died Nov. 1880 and Lydia later married John Sheldon. She was still
alive WW1 period,
Some of George's family migrated to Canada about 1930, and John with his
wife Sarah Dean and 10 children came to New Zealand over the years 1913 and
Hugh Graham Walker of Notts, still alive in the 1970s was the family
historian of both the Walker and Moody families. Lydia's parents George and
Emma are on the 1881 census at Selston, and some family members are in the
Farndon cemetery (Notts MIs)
Is anyone researching this Walker family, or the Moodys who were also
originally from Lincolnshire.

Any suggestions as to the best means of following a trail pre 1800?
Where one is following a common-ish surname, there seems to be no SURE way
of tying a bith to a previous marriage, except for proximity of date ( eg
birth 18 months after marriage).
Even harder, the birth/baptism of father and mother 18 to 20 years earlier -
but what if they were newish arrivals in the parish.
>From a distance it seems the only answer is order as many fiches as you can
and keep hunting.
