Ilkeston Registration District has only existed since June 1938. Before that
it was a sub-district of Basford. Basford was/is a registration district
covering mainly Nottinghamshire but also parts of Derbyshire.

Laudenum is a derivative of morphine which is same family as diamorphine
(heroin), pethidine etc, and also the same family as codeine. I was
involved a car accident some years ago, - I can tell you the addiction to
the codeine - which converts to diamorphine in your body - is awful -
terrible to come off. and even a long time later if I take a co-codamol
tablet I feel weird
>Also, laudanum and morphine were given to American Civil War soldiers for
>various things. Often the addiction was worse than what they were
>treated for! Many post-war doctors continued to give patients the drugs
>they returned home.

Ilkeston is a registration district in it's own right and keeps it's own
records. I can't remember it ever being part of Basford as Ilkeston is in
Derbyshire and Basford is in Nottinghamshire.

I found an ancestor in a Langar parish register yesterday - bap 30th March 1771 - Thomas son of Sapinas(?) and Mary Taylor. Has anybody come a cross this word/name before please? I have been unable to find it in lists of either English names or Latin names although my Latin dictionary shows that it means wise person. Can anyone help please?
hello List -
I wish to thank everybody who has contacted me on and off the List with regards to this note book.
The note book is a treasure in itself - I only hope that it has a long life when I return it to the rightful owner.
As for a web site for the BRAINSBYs - mmmmm - watch this space - it is only a matter of time - I have to nail down my daughter and husband.
Also - go and visit the Brewhouse Yard Museum - and ask for BRAINSBY BROS ( - hello Sue Postles!!!)

An ancestor committed suicide at Sturton, close to the county boundary with
Lincolnshire, in 1905. Have the Coroners records for the period been
retained? Sturton is a little to the west of Retford. Is there a local
newspaper that might have reported the incident.
My apologies but Im posting this on both the Notts & Lincs lists.
I note that at marriages, John Smith and Mary Brown both of this parish were married this day. Looking at the baptisms, there is no sign of either of them. I assume, therefor that they were born elsewhere.
Question:- How long must one live within a parish before one becomes a member of that parish. i.e. not liable to receive a removal order when one's world goes pear shaped.
I also read somewhere recently, that the police still have the power to remove baddies to their place of origin.
What an insight. My only question is where can I get it from. ;-)

I can remember very well my old mum doctoring me up as a child with something called 'fever drops' I've always had my suspicions about the ingredients - you just went out like a light!! Come to think of it- could do with a drop of that at night now!!
The old da used to tend to my 'bilious bouts' with vinegar cloths for my headaches - and they worked too!!
Ah happy days, diphtheria, rickets, etc.
