    Updating Tombstones and Monumental Inscriptions website

    Don't think I've made myself clear. I found your website and can see three links to Cornish churches but two of them are green.

    Updating Tombstones and Monumental Inscriptions website

    I just had a cursory look at your link. Do you have some cornish inscriptions? i'm looking for family in Padstow that I've not spotted after two visits to the graveyards. We took a lot of photos which I am happy to share if you have not got them.

    John Henry Stedman

    I've just found a little more on this chap. It pays to keep worrying at these problem individuals. Walter the eldest son was born in the July quarter of 77. His birth registered as Walter Stedman Chivers - before the marriage of the parents in December. At marriage John gives his age as 26 a...

    How did you get 'addicted' to Family History / Gen

    I see no one has written on here for a while but as I'm new here I thought I'd reply. First of all I grew up in Trinidad in the West Indies . Dad was British and went out in the forties to work in sugar, mum from a mixed colonial background of settlers from England, France and Spain from the...

    Barnweel

    Gosh yes that looks right. I see from Wikipedia that there was a medievial parish church there - suppressed in the 17th century. Even pictures of the ruins. Also mentions that a village existed there. No mention of any Porters though sadly.

    Barnweel

    I also did a google search and found a directory of the town of Ayr in 1926 and came up with Thos Reid engineer 11 Barns crescent, North Barnweel, Ayr I checked google maps. Barns crescent is to the south of the town but still pretty near the city centre nowadays, but I presume Ayr would...

    Barnweel

    Oooh just found a little snippett. In an online book A general Description of the Shire of Renfew which states Mr Robert Wallace Minister of Barnweel in the shire of Air was made Bishop of the Isles. Its hard to decipher the date but it seems to be 1662. So there was a Barnweel in Scotland...

    Barnweel

    The information I have comes from a query in the Ulster journal of Archeology asking about the Knox family but stating what was known and just says he married Mary Porter daughter of the Laird of Barnweel, so I presumed that Porter was the Lairds surname. I'm not too familiar with the title...

    Barnweel

    Has anyone ever heard of this place? I have an ancestor who was called Mary Porter daughter of the Laird of Barnweel. She married in Northern Ireland in guessing mid 1600's. Was the term Laird used in both Scotland and Ireland? Her husband was of Scottish descent.

    John Henry Stedman

    I think it must be the younger Elizabeth. Her brother John was born in Newbury. You can trace him through the censuses to St Leonards where he was a gardener in care at a place called Grove house in 1871. With his wife Sarah. In 1881 he is In Archer terrace with a wife called Mary. A death of...

    John Henry Stedman

    Thanks for the suggestions. I've been mulling over this chap for the last couple months or so and still not got anywhere although at least found his wife's parents and grandparents on one side. His family is the only gap on my fan chart.

    John Henry Stedman

    Ok so are you saying that if it was an illegitimate birth he would have been registered in maiden name and might have later taken the name Stedman?

    John Henry Stedman

    Father named as William on marriage cert and John Chivers (probably brother) as witness.

    John Henry Stedman

    It just says Francis which could be even mothers name I suppose but it says Carman which sounds like a mans job. Yes the two census 91/01 give yr of birth as around 57 but marriage cert suggests earlier (51) but even putting large variant in searches draws nil. I sent for Henry John...
