I joined this mailing list a few months ago and have really enjoyed reading all your messages.
We took our very first Family History research trip earlier this week. First stop was Walkeringham in the north of the county to visit the Churchyard of St Mary Magdalene's Church where I knew there were some headstones relating to my Pyecroft family. After some searching we eventually tracked some down and took lots of photos - by the way, what is the form on cleaning off a headstone to make the inscription more legible?
I have since discovered that there are quite a few more headstones than the ones we found, so a return trip may be needed one day!
Unfortunately the church itself was closed because of health and safety concerns. I couldn't find any details of services that are held there so I do hope this isn't a permanent closure.
Then on Tuesday it was off to the Nottingham Archive. We had never visited an archive - or in fact anywhere like this where records are held so this was very exciting and we had a wonderful day. I'd already seen from their website that there were 3 wills that might be worth looking at, and these were far more enlightening than I'd expected and really gave me a wealth of new information. Two were on microfiche and one was in the document store.
But that wasn't all - there were numerous files of index cards to search through to find more records on microfiche and in the document store and we ended up staying there from 9am until 5pm only leaving when our brains were too befuddled to take any more!
If you haven't been to the Archive I would really recommend it, the staff are so helpful and it's wonderful to think of all that information being catalogued and maintained for posterity. We chose the Pyecroft line as a good place to start as it's a fairly unusual name and I already had quite a lot of information but I'm amazed at how much more there is to discover.
Has anyone else got any experiences to share on going on research trips?
hi thank you for all the help.could i assume that a child born on the 28th on Dec 76 (that's the one with the S next to it) and the other first quarter of 77 without the s,(which i think are the same child) .i suppose what I'm asking is would the S be on the 77 registration. thank you again.margaret.
hi can someone tell me if a birth registered in 1977 1st quarter could also be a a registration in the last quarter of 1976 but with an s by the side of it and another name as the maiden name be the same one please.hope that makes sense.thank you.Margaret.
Alfred george Williams married Helen Agnes Dawson in 1872 in Suez, Egypt. He was a telegrapher and worked in Scotland, Aden, Newfoundland, and Brooklyn, New York. He gave his birthplace as both Hull and Gateshead. He said his father was born in Wales.
Mary Harriet and Edmund were boarders at Helen Dawson’s house in Nottingham in the 1871 census.
Our family records have Marie Sybille Van Den Resch as the mother. She was a midwife in Bruges, Belgium. She died and Henry married Mary (Polly) Taylor. The marriage didn’t last. He abandoned the family, either to become a monk or commit suicide.
Our records have Walter marrying Rachel Pepper and having a son Walter Hedley Williams and a daughter Annie Van Den Resch Williams.
Supposedly Edmund emigrated to Australia.
Family stories said that Henry Williams had a brother who was a coffee, tea and spice merchant and one who worked for the Bank of England.
Sorry for the odd posting. I'm sorting through some papers and clearing stuff out. I've found a death certificate I ordered a couple years ago, but found that it wasn't for one of my ancestors. It was while I was looking for my own 3rd great grandfather's death (which I subsequently ordered).
Anyway, here's the details for the incorrect certificate in case anyone finds them one day while searching the list archives:
Registration District: Basford
Death in the Sub-district of: Beeston in the: County of Nottingham
When and where died: Fifth September 1916 21 Stoney Street Beeston UD
Name and surname: John Walker
Age: 84 years
Occupation: Tailor (Journeyman)
Cause of death: (1) Senile decay Certified by William R Smith M.D
Signature, description and residence of informant: B. M. Hawkes present at the death 24 Stoney Street Beeston
When registered: Sixth September 1916
Signature of registrar: F. Rolling Registrar
Hopefully this can be of use to someone! No doubt this John is one of my relatives somehow through the Walkers of Wollaton and Beeston, but he wasn't the one I was looking for.
Hello from wintery Melbourne, OZ
I recently subscribed to your List and I am looking for the family of Thomas & Elizabeth Towe about 1790 and their family some of whom moved to Portsea. Hampshire about 1803.
Not sure where they came from in Notts, but out GG Grandfather indicated that HIS PLACE was Nottingham, on his children’s birth reg’s.
Thank you in advance for any advice.
