    What's your Hobby or Hobbies, besides Family History.?

    My other hobby, after family history, is counted cross stitch embroidery. I like to design my own pictures but do admit to cheating as I have a computer programm into which I can scan photos and the programme turns them into embroidery charts. Not every photo is good enough - much depends on the...

    George HAIN & Emma LAWRENCE

    The Dec 1849 birth fits better than the Sep 1850 one seeing as Mary Jane is down as being 1 year old in April 1850 when the Census was taken. Forget I ever mentioned it!

    It's no wonder we can't find ancestors

    A bit likr Census Enumerators - I'm sure poor handwriting was a qualification for getting the job. Thankfully a few literate ones slipped through the net.

    It's no wonder we can't find ancestors

    I wholeheartedly agree, Steve. We are lucky that so much has survived the ravages of time etc and my grateful thanks go to all the people who have worked hard to get so much on line for us. However it ain't half frustrating when, no matter how hard you try, certain ancestors just cannot be found.

    The ancestors certainly don't make it easy for us to find them.

    It's no wonder we can't find ancestors

    Thanks Steve. I'd found the first two baptisms with fathers Enoch and John but neither are correct as her parents were definitely William and Beatrice. They made a joint Will in which they mention their daughter Jane Seager.

    It's no wonder we can't find ancestors

    I don't think she was baptised with all three names. They only ever seem to have the one name in the 1690s. She was born in Dudley (I think) c1694, parents William and Beatrice Rollinson but I haven't found a baptism using any one of the three names.

    It's no wonder we can't find ancestors

    I have an ancestor, Joseph Seager, baptising sons in Kingswinford, Staffs in the early 1700s. According to the baptisms his wife is called Jane. After his death Probate was granted to his widow Jane and in Jane's Will she mentions her sons whose names fit with the baptisms. The problem arose...

    Devil and deep blue sea!

    Could it possibly have been a nonconformist marriage or in a Registry Office (if they did them there back then), which is why it's not showing up in the PRs .

    Devil and deep blue sea!

    Don't quite understand what you mean. In the 1881 marriage John Stock, father Benjamin Stock, is marrying Jane Rawlings, father John Rawlings.

    Elizabeth Harris

    The Wilts FHS Baptism Index has both the Elizabeth Harris baptisms down as taking place in Bradford on Avon and both baptisms give the parents as Thomas and Catherine. Not sure where they get the Catherine from. The entry just says Parish Baptisms so not sure if that is the PR entry or the...
