I'd like some help with the history of the 2nd Notts Volunteer Rifles. I have found that a company
was headquartered at South Collingham, where they had a drill field in 1869 through 1881. I have
also found reference to them as the "Retford Volunteer Rifles" in 1862 when their officers changed.
Who can tell me more?

Thank you so very much that was a lot of typing but I appreciate it so
much. Sorry it a little late in answering but had to go off for awhile.
I felt like he couldn't have owned it from his background but its nice to
have the proof and you sure found it.
Again thank you so much

It looks like James Vickers was a licensee only, and took over the licence
sometime after September 1873.

Thank you Peter and yes I should have googled it. I did the Name White
Horse but didn't think to do it for Relict.
In a message dated 6/24/2011 4:12:22 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time,
Relict simply means survivor.
You should simply try Google.
Hi I found this and was wondering if someone will tell me what Relict.
means at the end.

Administration of the personal Estate of Thomas Vickers late of the "White Horse" inn
Ilkeston Road in the town of Nottingham Licensed Victuallar and Maltster

It looked like White Horse was something special. I found a picture of it
online and what a beautiful place it is. It also says it was first built in
1661. I am sure it had to be redone a few time. How would I find out if
Thomas owned it or just was working it? Since it says Personal Estate can I
take it they owned it? It could mean only his personal Estate.

Hello: I am hoping for Information about a Welch family whochristened at least two of their children in Bawtry, Nottinghamshire.
I hope for the marriage of Edward Welch and Sarah and ofcourse hope to find her maiden name, and it would be wonderful to find thenames of their parents and the record of their births.
The first known child was John Welch, Born 15 August 1803and Christened 16 August 1803 in Bawtry, Nottinghamshire. Parents: Edward Welch(ironmonger) and Sarah.
The second is Thomas Welch, Christened 18 October 1805 inBawtry, Nottinghamshire. Parents: Edward Welch (ironmonger) and Sarah.
I did look through the online city directories but did notfind any of them, but the online that I have access to is the 1820s and unlessI am missing them, I just don’t see Edward at that time.
Both sons Thomas and John immigrated to Canada,Thomas 1839-1843 and John before 1861. I do not see Edward or Sarah that can beidentified in the 1841 and neither of the sons, so how long they stayed thereor when Edward and Sarah got there I cannot say other than from 1803-1805 forcertain. (John went to Warwick and then emigrated)
A daughter of Thomas Welch died in Canadaand she had told her descendants that filled out her death cert that Thomas Welch hadlived in Ranskill at what time I do not know.
Thank you, Cherie Lynn
Surnames: Edward and John and Thomas Welch in Bawtry and Ranskill in Nottinghamshireand Thomas Linley Lindley and Mary Briggs in Blyth inNottinghamshire and/or Yorkshire. Robert Mason and Harriet ClaphamClappin in Yorkshire.

The PR for this period was not transcribed by Phillimore. Your source is
very likely from the BT's which will almost certainly be viewable at your
local LDS Family History Centre.

Virtually all Notts marriages of that era are transcribed by Phillimore.
There is no other information recorded for this marriage.
I have in my possession a copy of the last Will and Testament of Emily
Sarah Little dated 08/03/1918 Widow of 223 New Kings Road, Fulham.
Benefactors included niece Emily Sarah Catleugh, Theodore Guillaume, nephew
William Denzil Catleugh, cousin Agnes Sarah Gobbi, cousin Emily Lindsell,
cousin Polly Brook, friend Edith Emily Phelps and housekeeper Emily Vodkins.
Should anyone be interested, I am willing to send via an Sae to the first
person to reply.
My guess is that the lack of earlier responses is that very few people
will have access to these specific PR's.
Do you know if they even exist? Might it be possible for you to order
them in through LDS. Check the Family Search catalogue.
Somebody said the other day that they will even send out a printout for
about $2 per page.
I'd help if I could, but I only have the same resources as are available
Peter in Sydney
Maybe with a quiet list I can repost a query from some time ago which
unfortunately drew no responses, possibly because the questions had
My difficulty is that the LDS have only the BT's which start in 1609, and
this period is likewise not on the Notts FHS CD. The PR's commence in 1595
and are shown as available at the Notts Archives and the SOG, but I live in
I have some questions which may be answered by viewing the PR's:
Baptism at Langar 1595-1609 of Grace Dubbledaye (or Doubleday) d of Richard
Also the burial of Richard about 1606 to 1608 (I have a possible remarriage
of Isabel late in 1608).
Also, the baptism of any Daune (or Dawne) for the same period - Grace m
George Daune in 1624/1625 in Langar.
Thanks in advance
