I've recently found the same term (Nurse Child) against one of my ancestry infants, living with a related family to that child. This infant was 4mnths old. I presume that the birth mother either died at the birth or perhaps was too ill after the birth to care for the babe. The...
It's so long since I last logged on that I'm pretty much like a new member! Traumatic times intervened but I'm now trying to get back into family investigations and wonder if you are still researching the Trodds. I have to backtrack through all my information but hope to add and...
Some of the following might be of interest:
WILLIAM: born 1842 and baptized 30/1/1842 at FROYLE HANTS.
PARENTS: William (Shopkeeper) & Harriet.
MARRIED: 1865 to SOPHIE (or Sophia).
1881 Census: living at 5 Bellevue St. Southampton. Sophie from Portslade...
Apologies for not having replied regarding all the above information for Laz Steel Roberts etc.
I can't yet tie 'my' Laz in with these folk but may be able to do so after more research. Or maybe after reading the information which you now have!
It's great that new information can...
Thank you Rob and your research is very much appreciated.
The more I research my Laz the more complicated becomes the problem! I seem to be permanently stuck with the 40 odd years of his life between his youth and up to when he disappears from Wycombe.
If you look back over the entries you...
Laz born Chard and Laz born Stonehouse are both on my shortlist for being father to my Laz. No proof for either.
In case you haven't already seen the following, which may interest you, have a read as it all still holds good.
Laz and Sarah Burns marriage certificate:-
It's good to hear from you as every scrap of information helps and new contacts might just have that bit of the puzzle which fits it all together! Apart from which, the more Laz hunters the better for seeking out what might help at least one of us as these Laz's are proving a bit...
Having trawled through every Lazarus entry I could find, even making allowances for incorrect name spelling, I had not found any of the information you have so many thanks indeed for this data! I'll check these through and will let you know the outcome.
Even if they prove not...
Hope the heatwave is not being too unkind to you all! Phew!
The marriage certificate for Laz Roberts has arrived. The plot turns to treacle! eek) Three years research is now in doubt. Genealogy ebb and flow; but even having to start again can become an adventure (I tell myself)...
Back to Trodds for the moment and the missing Abraham.:(
There are several Abraham (possible Trodds?) to be found in the Channel Islands; mostly Guernsey. I say 'possible' as the surname is Torode.
Would you agree it feasible that Torode could have become Trodd when it reached...
I thought we were known to each other on Genes Maggie which means that I know how thorough you are with research; and you've very quickly proved that with what you've already found regarding Laz & Sarah. Appreciative thanks indeed as it's a completely new angle.
What you have found...
As promised I've returned to submit more of Laz. Yet again I've checked 1841 & 1851 census but no Laz; not even as Lay. This doesn't really surprise me as it's strongly believed he changed his name for two reasons; Laz Roberts was probably deemed far more sophisticated for a professional...
A little more on Kenith via biographical data:
Apparently, he hates his name being incorrectly spelt (not that it looks correctly spelt!).
For many years he and the writer Dennis Potter were best of friends but they had a falling out and the relationship was never repaired. :'(...
Hello Maggie and Hammy,
I'll check Wills but don't hold out much hope. At least, not under his alias but under his birth name it could prove very interesting if there is a Will!
We have a letter written by his first wife (my great grandmother) in which she doesn't mention her husband but she...
Like you Ed, I've been keeping an eye open for updates though it's been like glimpsing a ghost site!
I'm probably as green with envy as you Maggie; I would love to explore Cornwall and see its beautiful views.
Hope you don't overfill on clotted cream and pasties Ed! Sounds like a...
Is there anybody there? :(
Very much hope that you are all okay and still growing those trees. I'm thinking I've lost you all to 1911 or maybe you've all dived into another thread!
Look forward to your being here again soon!
I've just now been able to look at Emma's Sampler and am bowled over by it!
It is so neat and complex for a nine year old. Taking into consideration the lighting available at the time it is extraordinary work. It certainly helps in visualising Emma as a person rather than just words...
Hello Clare, Ed and all on this thread :)
A little extra information which you might not have.
Charles & Charlotte also had: Thomas born 1832, Emily born 1838 & William born 1843. This from a descendant contact on Genes R.
John born 1847 was born in Sholing. His spouse was Sarah Norgate.
