    Good website host for a one name study

    I'm beginning to conduct a one name study and want to put together a website to contain all of my research. I use Blogger and planned on writing a blog there to track the research, but I need more flexibility to produce the kind of website I want. I have some basic website building knowledge so...

    Difficult to read occupation

    Thank you both! He is 59 in the 1851 census, and it would make sense to employ someone to help on the large farm. Thank you!

    Difficult to read occupation

    That makes sense because all the people that have it are over 60 :) Thank you!!!

    Difficult to read occupation

    Difficult to read occupation - No. 2 Hi, thought I might as well edit this post with a new occupation that I can't read! I've attached the image. Someone else on the page seems to also be a farmer but underneath it says 'boy in door'. Mine says '?? door labourer' Any ideas what it means?

    Carr

    I was just wondering if anyone could find a Hannah Jane Carr in the 1911 census? I can see her name in Bridlington on the 1911 census site, but I can't find the right family on Ancestry :( Maybe she's visiting someone whose name isn't Carr? Thank you!

    Intestate/Sureties

    So the father and brother in law are backing up the wife's claim to her husbands money?

    Intestate/Sureties

    I have just received a copy of the probate (I assume). It calls the deceased 'intestate' so I was wondering what that meant? Also, his father in law and brother in law are listed as sureties - what does that mean as well? I did a quick forum search but I appear to be the only one confused :)

    Norman Elders

    I've just discovered my great grandfather had a brother that may have been born after their father died. I've ordered his birth certificate but just wondering if someone could locate him in 1911? Unfortunately it would appear after the death of John the family got split up, with the mother in...

    Harriet Pickup

    Thank you! The name just above is definitely Harriet, but all the details for this 'Hornet' are correct except the spelling! And thank you for the occupation! Could not figure out that first word!

    Harriet Pickup

    I'm trying to find Harriet Pickup in the 1891 census and I have come across a Hornet Pickup (as translated by anc..)and just want to see if anyone else agrees with my assumption this must be Harriet. The head of the household is almost certainly her brother, but I just want to make sure! Also...

    Secretary to a Public Company - Which company? (1904)

    I wouldn't have thought to look on there so thank you!

    Secretary to a Public Company - Which company? (1904)

    Just been searching the Tyne and Wear archive online and discovered lots of documents relating to Elders Walker & Co Ltd, paint, varnish and colour manufacturers and glass merchants. John's brother is a paint manufacturer, and it's been thought we had a link to that company, but today they only...

    Secretary to a Public Company - Which company? (1904)

    He is also listed as secretary to a company in that census.

    Secretary to a Public Company - Which company? (1904)

    Just got my ancestors death certificate from 1904 (aged 31, grrr pneumonia!) and it states he was secretary to a public company. I know today you have to name your secretary's at Companies House - just wondering if that database is searchable?

    John Redvers Elders

    Thanks to everyone!! If I could I'd buy you all a drink!!

    John Redvers Elders

    Hmm, I hadn't thought of that. Do you know if there's any way to find out if he did go into care? Regarding Teresa's family, her father is listed as Dick Wiseman on her marriage certificate, which is completely different to John... I'll see if the same name appears on the birth certificate.

    John Redvers Elders

    I think that may be the best plan! Thanks for your help!

    John Redvers Elders

    Is that the 1901 census? I've found that family group which I am assuming to be the correct one, but John Redvers and mother disappear in 1911... Teresa isn't to be found in the 1901 census either. Maybe I'm just related to a bunch of shifty people avoiding the census, which knowing my...
