    Elizabeth Roebuck nee Camden

    That is a surprise as most of his family were Unitarians.

    Elizabeth Roebuck nee Camden

    I looked through Burial records and couldn't find it. Good work. Do you know which burial ground?

    Elizabeth Roebuck nee Camden

    That sounds like her. Her husband was born in 1720. That date I know is correct as have Sheffield Parish records for him.

    Elizabeth Roebuck nee Camden

    I am trying to find details of an Elisabeth Camden born around 1815 and daughter to the Innkeeper of the Castle Inn in Birmingham. She married a Benjamin Roebuck but I cannot find when. There are conflicting accounts of whether they had a daughter Elisabeth. I don't know if she died in...

    WW1 - Restored film. by Peter Jackson.

    It is amazing and thinking that there are other film archives where such work would be great too. Such as some of the early films of UK cities and people leaving works or going on a day out.

    Shores X 3 Sheffield

    Quite possibly. My main aim was to see if there was a direct link between the three brothers who demolished the castle and Samuel son of John Shore who built a Steel works on the castle site around 60 years later. Problem is when you go into civil war period there can be gaps in registers as I...

    Shores X 3 Sheffield

    I found something that said Humphrey had a son John but I also found 2 different birth dates for John. But the date 1650 makes more sense because his wife Sarah Sims was born around that date too. I don't know Ralph. The Shores were said to have come from Dronfield but that makes no sense as...

    Ancestral Cobblers

    I've hit a new bunch of family tree cobbling ie when one family thread is linked into another thread despite the fact that it makes no sense. So people keep moving across the continent despite the trade directories showing they worked in same place for whole of their life. Their children are...

I think he is the James Bennet who was apprenticed to Edward Bennet in 1729 in Coalpit Lane though not sure if that is when he started or finished his apprenticeship. though it sounds...

    Female Radical Association Sheffield

    Back again with the 1839 female group and I have few days left to apply for funding to put a plaque to one of the women who started the Female Radical Association. The only one I have an address for that is still standing is Sarah Foden wife of Peter Foden but I know very little about her...

    A House Through Time - BBC2.

    Perhaps they could pick a house in Newcastle or Durham? We get a lot about London and the Liverpool one was a refreshing change but North East would be interesting too. Or Hull.

    Radical women in Sheffield a possible story?

    SHeffield Indexers gave me link to Newspaper article that doesn't mention Caroline Ash in 1839 when the Female Radical Association was formed although future Newspaper articles do.Unless the FRA disbanded and a new female group formed by Mrs Ash. She definitely was there in the 1840s and in...

    Radical women in Sheffield a possible story?

    The Ash entries you have that died are in same district as James Ash in Randal Street who turned out to be a pen knife Cutler. I think he is the one that was born in 1820 whose father was a scissor maker. I can't even find Randal Street in a census record. My details are from the trade index.
