    Philips marriage

    Hello, I would appreciate some help looking for a marriage between John Philips and wife Mary. I have no maiden name. It is likely the marriage took place at St James Clerkenwell, London about 1760. Their first child was born 1762, and all were baptised at St James.

    Just a quick question...

    Hi everyone, I just want to ask for your opinions. I am searching a particular line and believe I have the right people; for instance, all the dates are feasible and the occupations of fathers support what I know so far etc. I have also found the other children of various sets of parents and all...

    London Streets

    Have I got the right page?

    Hi, I'm ordering a cert and I remember ordering this one once before but they said the page was incorrect, despite copying it straight from the transcription on a****try. I know it sounds like a pretty simple thing to do by oneself, but the page number is a little blurred on the document, so...

    Trade Directory Look up

    Wasn't sure where to put this but would anyone be able to search the trade directories for London? I have never used them and don't know where to find them, so if anyone could help that would be great. I'm not even sure the record I'm looking for exists as the year concerned is 1737. I'm...

    Ritchley Fannon Marriage

    Hi, just a quick lookup request. I'm looking for a marriage in London between Annie Mary Fanny Ritchley and William Thomas Fannon. I think it was 1893, or certainly around that time. Annie was born in Berlin so her maiden name might be a slight variation of Ritchley before Anglicising it...
