There's the weirdest thing on the Notts FHS 1851 census CDs - on the place
name index Sneinton is listed as piece no. 2130, which is allegedly on disk
3 going by the disk labels. However, it's not there, although when you open
piece no 2131, the first page is a header for 2130, but then nothing else!
Maybe someone else on the list can clarify, as there are some BARROW names
indexed for 2130 (or it could be that it's just too late at night and I'm
not thinking straight).
I did find this family which I thought might be of interest:
Folio 458/9 Page 87, Schedule 202
14 Queens Row, Nottingham St Mary
Thomas BARROW, Hd, Md, 31, Silk Glove [Fingerer?], b. Tewkesbury
Matilda BARROW, Wf, Md, 30, Embroiderer of Hosiery, b. Radford, Notts
Mary A BARROW, Dau, U, 9, Scholar, b. St Mary, Nottingham
Eliza BARROW, Dau, U, 6, b. St Mary, Nottingham
Henry [?S] BARROW, Son, U, 4, b. Sneinton, Notts
Elizabeth BARROW, Dau, U, 2, b. St Mary Nottingham
Hello, I've done it again - lost the name of the person researching
Gabbitas. I have some info which may help. I have found on the 1871 census
a Gabbitass family listed as Pabbitass, as follows
Ref RG12 2644 9 34 19
George Gabbitass Head 60 b Drayton, Notts
Frederick Gabbitass Son 23 b Worksop, Notts
Clara Gabbitass Daur 19 b Worksop, Notts
Charlotte Gabbitass 12 b Worksop, Notts
They were sitting right between two of my Blower families at 10 Prospect
Cheers, Liz in NZ

In december of 1851 John Ellis ,widower,married Ann Notman.
John gave his occupation as Victualler.
I have found a John Ellis as Publican of the Black's Head in 1858 but by
1862 he could be at the Windmill Tavern on Market Street.
Any one have further info on the publicans at these public houses.
In December of 1857 William James Notman married his cousin Sarah Notman .
He of Walker street Sneinton and she of Woolpack Lane. William gives his
occupation as Victualler.
A transcription i have been kindly sent from the 1861 census gives the
13 Garner hill Eagle Tavern St Peters exchange Ward
William James Notman 33 Licensed Victualler Nottm
Sarah Notman 42
Hannah Smith 24 house servant Chesterfield.
I have been tying to figure out where on Garners hill the tavern might have
In 1895 the Eagle tavern is at 4 Garners Hill with Mrs Emma Whitehead.
In 1858 its with Joseph Wright but although it appears to be in Garners hill
it seems to indicate that it is in Narrow Marsh and Drury Hill.
Is it possible that it did move around?
1895 is the last mention i can find . When did Garners hill become as it is
today . I seem to remember it as a flight of stairs or was that middle hill? I
certainly don't remember buildings there in 1965 and later.
Both William and Sarah were dead by 1863 and there is no sign of william in
1851 . I think he may have gone to London.
Can any one shed any light on either Garners Hill or the Eagle Tavern?
I am wondering if sks has time to look for a family on the 1851 for me. They
BARWICK Emma age about 22 b. Nottingham
There is possibly also a son Samuel who was baptised at St. Mary in 1851
when they were living on Pomfret Street. I suspect Samuel to be a late
baptism. Unfortunately St Mary's is spread over several pieces but from the
NFHS index I have the following references.

I use Archive CD Books to do my family history research,
Can someone help me with my gg Grandmother Ruth COOK.
She married George COOK in East Retford 1872, and produced two daughters, Mary Annie (1879), my gGrandmother, and Sarah Jane (1873).
The 1881 census also has two other daughters, Martha (b 1866) and Hannah (b 1867) WHITEHEAD both born in Cottam. I have been told of a Billy WHITEHEAD, but nobody in the family knows who he was. I have a marriage of a Ruth HERRIOT to James WHITEHEAD at Edwinstow 24/2/1859.
I think Hannah was born c 1840 in East Markham.
Can anyone find any of these characters in the census for 1841 - 1871, or any other information?
Thanks in anticipation Ed

Is this your family?
1871 England Census
Hannah Whitehead 61 Codnor Wash, Derbyshire, England Mother-in-law Sutton
in Ashfield Nottinghamshire
James Whitehead 37 Leinsmith, Derbyshire, England Head Sutton in Ashfield
Ruth Whitehead 36 Skegby, Nottinghamshire, England Wife Sutton in Ashfield
Sarah Whitehead 38 Tibshelf, Derbyshire, England Visitor Sutton in Ashfield
I have an entry on the 61 census for a William TOPLISS and family. William
is shown as a Joiner and publican living at 'Bur House', Barnby Road, Newark.
What I am wondering is, could Bur House be the name of the Public House.
Also is Barnby Road and Barnby Gate the same place.
There is a website to find old pubs and inns. I wonder if someone can remind
me of this site.
Thanks to all those who tried to answer my lost marriage of my Gt
Grandfather Charles Capewell to Margaret Mary Betts c1897 from the marriage
index. No result as yet.
I was in two minds whether to buy the cd myself and I needed to test the cd
for myself so I went to the FHS fare at Loughborough University today (Sun
29th Aug) and requested a search on Margaret Mary Betts they have a new
updated cd/report (which will be out shortly) and she still doesnt show on
this will I be throwing good money away in finding the marriage?
I also searched www.1837online.com <http://www.1837online.com/> from 1890 -
when the couple would have been 14 years old - to 10 years after the last
child born 1913 (to 1923) - no luck there!
Maybe they were never married it wouldnt have been the first time!
So do I still need the Marriage Index? Is it
worth the £20
Is the Baptism Index any better?
The Burial Index is another one up for renewal soon
Can someone else (except Nottingham FHS staff) please advise are these
cds worth there weight in gold?
Has someone got these cds and have had their use and want to sell on at
reduced price? (Answer direct please)
Please unsubscribe me for the time being, my research has turned toward
Leics, but I'm far too busy with other stuff at the mo.
Thanks for all your help,
This is my first letter to this list. Some time ago I was in
Nottingham to see where a distant aunt had lived in Mansfield Road
(number 6) in the 1860's. Mansfield Rd was rather narrow and it
appeared to me that the road was the tradesmen's entrance and the main
road was below the house. The road below (I don't have its name was
closed to vehicular traffic and was wide and picturesque. In fact it
reminded me of a Pissario painting of Sydenham which is in the National
Does anyone know the name of the lower road andhow these houses would
have been and whether this was the main road servicing the houses
listed as being on Mansfield Road.
I may have already asked this but the grey matter has been affected by all
this rain !
Apologies for any duplication - does anyone know the answer to the
If a person died in June 1896 and their death was subject to a Coroner's
Order, when would the death be registered ? I cannot find a record of it in
either the June or September quarter of that year. Do I need to be searching
further afield ? This person died in Bulwell so where would the nearest
Coroner be? I know how the system works these days, but what happened to
dead people 100 yrs ago?
Sorry to be so morbid but it had to be asked.
Would anyone have access to the 1871 census for St Mary's Nottingham? I am
trying to find Joseph SKIDMORE and his wife Matilda. They were married in
Nottingham in 1864 and I have been unable to find them until they appear in
Rotherham 1874 when my grandfather William SKIDMORE is born. Why or when
they moved from Nottingham is unknown. Any help very much appreciated.

This is my first letter to this list. I am looking for information on
my family of Bennetts who lived in the Papplewick, Hucknall and
Mansfield districts at the end of the 18th century.
My ggggrandfather John Bennett was later transported to Australia for
embezzlement from the Manufactory of James Watt's son in Birmingham,
but I have been unable to find out more about the Bennett family, even
not being able to find the registration of birth of John Bennett, the
son of Joseph Bennett and Hannah Hankin.
Does anyone have any more information?
