Is there anyone that has the St Mary's the Virgin PR's for marriages for 21
Feb 1767 that would look to see if the name of the bride is DOdSON or
DObSON, that married John COLE on that date. Her fore name was Wilhelmina.
IGI has it as subnitted by a member of LDS, not from the PR's. Also to see
if she was born of county? Family notes did Not have her maiden name, but
did say she was "of Normandy". But I'm not sure if note meant that she was
born Normandy or if her ancestry was of Normandy. Quite awhile back on a
different list, someone mentioned that there was a 'Mayor of Nottingham that
'might' have been her father'. Anyone know anything about that? I have
parents and siblings of John, but need her parents and siblings. Need to
verify that this marriage did take place there on that date and correct
spelling of name, before can send for proof. All help or ideas appreciated.
Dont just search. Find. Check out the new MSN Search!
Many thanks for the fast response to my request. With your help I now know that Reuben Roper 1827 was the nephew of the Reuben Roper in my tree.
Especial thanks to Ron, Margaret and Joan. Sterling Stuff !!
I'm trying to trace the ancestry of a Reuben Roper born 1827 in Sutton-in-Ashfield, to see if he connects with my tree.
According to the 1881 census, a Reuben Roper born in 1827 in Sutton-in-Ashfield, was living in Hollinsend, Handsworth, Sheffield, married to Mary who was born in Sheffield.
I have a Reuben Roper in my tree who was born in 1808 in Teversal, Notts and my Roper ancestors were based in Teversal.
Although there is a generation gap, I can't help thinking that there is a connection between the two Reubens, especially as the name seems rather unusual
and Teversal is next to S-in-A.
Can anyone help ?
Cheers, Barry Roper
Please could someone help me with the baptism of a ALICE BROWNE born abt 1840 in Hucknall.
Also as anyone got access to the 1841 and 1851 for the same person to find her parents names.
I have just joined this list.
I am researching CHAMBERS and have found a Thomas CHAMBERS and Jane VERNEY marring at St Mary's Nottingham, 1811.
The date was 20/1/1811.
I am wondering if there is anyone who could possibly look at the records and tell me how old these 2 were and who their parents were?
Would the parish records have this information?
Hoping someone can help me as Thomas and Jane are my brick wall.

Please could someone look for a HERBERT SAMUEL CHARLES born in June Qtr 1884
in the district of Basford. Hope someone can find him on the 1891 census
along with his parents and any siblings. He married a CLARA ELIZABETH HART
in Basford District Dec 1903.
you'll need the marriage certificate for the fathers' names. The wedding
between William GIBBONS and Elizabeth JOHNSON was indeed 1908, Sep Qtr in
Nottingham District 7b page 793.

I have a double barrel look up I hope someone can solve.
I am looking for the parents of a Samuel Gibbons b1909 mar 1/4 Nottm.
I would like his parents to be William Gibbons bStamford, Lincs and
Elizabeth nee Johnson.
They married during 1908. Any ideas? They married Nottingham.
William's father was thought to be Irish but I have no name. I wonder if
that could be found too.
Just where does one start to look for Irish immigrants?
Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgraberfursorge.
The German War Graves Welfare Association's head office is at Werner
Hilperts Strasse 2, D-34117, Kassel, Germany.
German WW1 graves are usually flat stones with a number of men buried
together or mass graves. They also give little information.
I am not sure if they have a website but you could put in Volksbund etc and
see what comes up.

who worked a lace machine - and who worked for a firm called BIRKIN
in Nottingham and in order to 'decorate' his
page I thought I would try to track down a photograph of a
lace machine - a LEVERS lace machine.
Can anyone help please. Is there still a firm called BIRKIN
in Nottingham still making lace... their address would be handy.
Grateful for any help - thanks.

I am trying to find out what happened to Dora Baker born 1911 in Worksop, for her sister Frances born 1919. Parents were Clara Gertrude (Kirkham) and Charles Edward Baker married in 1910 in the Priory Church Worksop. Frances was sent to live with Clara's sister Mary Ann Bartrop in Accrington. Could SKS throw any light on what happened to Dora? Clara was in the workhouse in Worksop at some stage.

Is anyone researching the HORSEPOOL family - i have just found out my great
grandmother - Mary Jane Grace HORSEPOOL was born in Bingham in about 1846. I
actually visited Bingham this week and found out they were a very prominent
family in this village.
