The IGI lists it as 05 Nov 1731 in Eastwood, however, I didn't find it in

Sure enough, he is to be found at Trent College in Long Eaton. There are so
many strays here that it may be of wider interest so I am sending a copy of
this to the list.

Peter, In my experience, old sellotape (started yellowing) tends to come
off fairly easily if pulled gently. What I would advise you to do is to
scan the documents first. Then you always have a good copy that you can
reprint in colour. With a bit of practice, it is not too difficult to
restore the certificate digitally and print out a new copy. If the
certificate is in two separate pieces, it is usually easier to scan the
two pieces separately, and join them digitally.

Hello, is there anyone out there in Liverpool who can tell me anything about
John Lea, Mayor of Liverpool about 1905. This is a local history question.
He possibly came to live in the Nottingham area after that time, and we
would like to try and find out when. He was presented with a large red
leather covered bible by the corporation that year so must have been in
public service for some time.
Would be very grateful for any assistance,so that we can add a little
information about him when the bible goes on display in our church at the
New to this list, I am looking for an entry in the 1881 Census for Nottingham
for a Thomas TARPY (possibly TARPEY), wife Mary & son Thomas. The parents
were born in Ireland & the son in Nottingham in 1863. This is for a cousin
in the USA.

I wonder if someone might be able to do a look up on the 1841 census/census index for Harworth. The names in which I am interested are BENJAMIN WHITE (1779-1844) married to ANN, last name unknown, (ca 1775-1858) and their son JOHN WHITE (ca 1818-1891) married to HANNAH GREEN (ca 1820-1866).

Could anyone lookup Clement Alfred Potter born 1868 in Keyworth, Notts.
He was not with his family in 1881 census but i know he lived past this
date.He may have been at boarding school. Many thanks Linda
A couple of months ago we visited Barkerville in British Columbia. It is a
preserved Gold Rush town (mid-late 1800s) and there were several graves in
the cemetery of English settlers who had gone out to try their luck. I took
some photos and would be happy to let any descendants have copies. The
problem is their roots are a bit scattered (I didn't spot anyone from Notts)
and I wonder if there is anywhere central I could 'advertise' them. I
suppose I could drop a line to the FHS magazine, but does anyone have a
better idea please?
A bit of an off-the-wall enquiry I'm afraid, but I have obtained (from my
mother) one or two birth and marriage certificates that have worn through at
the folds and then been sellotaped together (some years ago).
The tape (luckily only on the reverse of the certificates) is badly
discoloured, and the certifiactes are a bit dog-eared at the join.
I would like to do a bit of renovation if I can, as these are originals.
Does anyone out there have any ideas about (or, better still, experience of)
removing sellotape without irreparably damaging the documents themselves?

I wondered if anyone knew whether the headstones in hockerton churchyard were readable?I am trying to piece together my LAMB family but I am missing the christening record of william LAMB circa 1774.I suspect his parents may be a John and Hannah But although they had 7 children chris at hockerton between 1760 and 1771,william is missing.william did marry at hockerton so perhaps the entry is simply missing.I just wondered theres a slim possibility that some LAMB headstones might help.Iappreciate that many people never had stones but you never know.There was supposedly a will left by a john Lamb but apparently it is missing,so i,m not sure how to proceed from here.Any ideas welcome .
A Big Thankyou to the person who told me I could load all the Excell
Marriage files into 1 Access File. I didn't believe it, but it did. I
crammed 74 meg of Excell files into one 18 meg Access File, it was like the
Black hole of Calcutta, I just kept bunging it in.
Thanks again, now I can do a search in one go, instead of about 20 go's.

Would some kind soul with access to the parish records for Nottingham
St Mary's or Selston
please do a lookup for the marriage of SOLOMON BINGHAM and SARAH FLINT
between 1900 - 1905.
Any help at all with these people will be greatfully received
We just returned to the Nottsgen mailing list and we are researching the
REVILL-MARTIN-FOWLKES/FOULKES-ROWLAND families. It is the MARTIN-FOWLKES
branch from the Nottingham area, which resided in Nottingham.
The information we have todate on the MARTIN family is as follows,
John MARTIN b. circ. 1817 married Elizabeth ? b. circ.1825.The son Thomas
MARTIN b.1847 married Harriet Fowlkes b. 1850 in Snenton. An other son may
have been Harry MARTIN b. 1850. Thomas and Harriet had some connection
(Managed) with the Sheakspeare Inn, Milton St., - The FOWLKES connection is
through Harriet (Fowlkes) MARTIN. Harriet 's parents were John Fowlkes Jr.,
b. 1825 and Susannah ROWLAND b. 1826 in Wirksworth, Derby.
The parents of John Fowlkes and a number of siblings emigrated to the USA in
1861 and settled in the Utha area.
The mother of John was a Harriet RAYNOR. The RAYNOR and the maternal FROST
family too originated from Nottingham.
Information on the foregoing would be appreciated. Herbert and Mary (REVILL)
