    SPARROW in Portsea/Southsea, Portsmouth

    Derek If you want any of the Portsmouth births confirmed let me know, I can pop over to the central library and look them up for you one weekend. Not sure about Gosport, I don't know if they keep those records in the same place, but I can check it out. I don't usually go to the record office...

    New to this forum

    Hi Derek Welcome to the forum. You don't happen to have a Henry Way listed as an ancestor do you? He was a tobacconist living in Portsmouth in 1841, not born in Hampshire. Jules

    a little bit of help please

    I had a look at 1881 and it seems to me that he is saying he is born somewhere else, trouble is the writing is so bad I can't read the name of the place. He is a coal miner on this one. Hope I'm not going over old ground, but I get confused by all the posts :)

    Skeletons in the cupboard

    apart from a couple of illegitimate births, the only skeleton I've uncovered was gg grandad serving time for the murder of his wife, they were both very keen on the drink, and that all came out in the court case. The wife had tried to committ suicide several times over the last 10 or so years...

    My First Car

    I just goggled 'bee's knees' and it wasn't very helpful lol. You must have had the streets pretty much to yourself, and everyone would have watched you with envy as you went by.
