Hi Wendy

Are you able to check on a burial of a Mary Tattersall who died 1864 in Radford, any info would be appreciated.

Thank you


Derek Report 4 Feb 2014 15:45

Wendy my Angel!! x.......I would be eternally in your debt if you could perform one of your seemingly impossible miracles.............that's what you call a grovel!!

I am stymied by a Nottingham marriage between JOHN BANNER b 1804 Greasley..or nearby...and a CHARLOTTE............born about 1815 allegedly in Arnold..the only one I can find is Charlotte Shipman,but it ain't her.

They were living in Wollaton in 1861 when John upped and hanged himself. They had five children between 1840 and 1854..........but the marriage seems to have been before 1837. cos I can't find it anywhere on Civil Reg BMD,s..but you'll find the family on the 1861 Census....

Many thanks again.

Thank you so much for the info - although it is always lovely to have supporting documentation, Francis is a rather distance cousin, and I wouldn't want to put you to any expense. Would they allow you to take a photo instead?

If you could just check the images to make sure that the 1884 doesn't also name her father as Joel? The witnesses, if they are legible, would be good to know.

Because this family are so 'ordinary' I never think to check the BNA ;-)

Hi +++DetEcTive+++,

While waiting for Debbie to come round had a quick look at the 19th Century British Newspapers and found in the marriage announcements in Nottingham Guardian dated friday October 28th, 1881

On the 20th Oct at St Ann's Church, Nottingham by the Rev George ?dgcome, rector of St Peter's, Fred the youngest son of Abraham Jamison to Annie Frances younger daughter of Joel Taylor, of Mayfield Grove.

Of course I'll still check the actual Church record, would you like me to get you a copy?

Also found on my disc 2 more christening of Joel's children:
1. 18 Dec 1853 John Bennett born 27 Nov 1853 St Paul's Church abode Sneinton.
2. 6 June 1858 Mary at St Paul's church abode Parliament Street.

All the best

The baptism address matches with the 1861 census, so thank you for that!

There's no rush. After all they aren't going anywhere. ;-)
Enjoy your baby sitting duties, and thank you.

Hi +++DetEcTive+++

Had a look on my Cd's

1. Frances Annie Taylor & Fred Jamison married at St Ann's Church 20 Oct 1881.
2. Frances Annie Taylor & William Simpson married at St Nicholas Church 28 Aug 1884.
I'll look those up for you when I'm next in the archives to see which one is the daughter of Joel, will not be until Wednesday as I'm babysitting tomorrow.

Also found a christening for Frances Anne Taylor daughter of Joel Taylor a joiner of Parliament Street, and his wife Elizabeth Ann at St Paul's Church on 6 Oct 1860.

Could you look for these marriages please?

Name: Frances Annie Taylor
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1881
Registration District: Nottingham
Inferred County: Nottinghamshire
Volume Number: 7b
Page Number: 408
Records on Page:
Fred Jamison
George Frankton
Frances Annie Taylor
Lucy Thompson

Name: Frances Annie Taylor
Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1884
Registration District: Nottingham
Inferred County: Nottinghamshire
Volume Number: 7b
Page Number: 347
Records on Page:
Julia German

I'm hoping one names her father as Joel Taylor, who in 1881 was a Brewery Agent, and unless I've got muddled, a Carpenter in 1891.

Frances Ann was born registered in 4Q 1860

Thank you

Hi Wendy,

Could you please take a look at the marriage of Oliver Gilbert and Mary Ann Burrows which took place at Babbington Chapel Nottinghamshire in Dec q 1881.

I'd like to know fathers name and witnesses please.

Thank you



Derek Report 29 Oct 2013 16:31

I have ..ANN HAWKESLEY HUNT baptised 04.08.1825 to JOHN HUNT and ANN BROMLEY HAWKESLEY....who were married 17.06.1824............this all took place in and around Edwinstowe Notts.......

I cannot find Ann Bromley Hawkesley born c 1790 Edwinstowe......either under the name of Bromley or Hawkesley......was she Ann Hawkesley nee Bromley..or does the Bromley bit come from further be honest i can't even find Anne hawkesley born 1790 Edwinstowe!! see Census entry..

Can you please help??



Wendy Report 9 Aug 2013 10:59

Hi Andrew,

I cannot find a christening for Alfred Baumfield but on the census (which I'm sure you have already seen) he mother was Jane Ann but the only way for you to get his actual date of birth and to be sure of his parents is for you to buy his birth certificate.

I did find 3 christening of his siblings all at St Nicholas Church Nottingham on 1 Feb 1857: Sarah Ann, Joseph and Mary Ann children of Benjamin and Jane of Chesterfield St, Nottingham, Benjamin is down as a Hawker.

I'll look for the burials next time I'm in the archives.

All the best



Andrew Report 9 Aug 2013 01:31

Hi Wendy, writing from New Zealand, you seem like a very obliging person with your lookups for people, so I was wondering if I can trouble you to look for some details for me?

Looking for a date of birth for Alfred Baumfield, born Nottingham around 1862 - a BMD search shows 2/4 of 1862, Vol 7b, p,267 if that is any use, hoping also to confirm if his parents are Benjamin Baumfield/Jane Ann Bartlem? And if at all possible, death dates for Benjamin and Jane Ann, I suspect 1879 for Benjamin and 1901 for Jane Ann, but can't find anything to confirm it.

Would really appreciate any help :-)

hi wendy
not seen you around for a while hope things are ok

edna johnson buried 1 dec 1928 church cemetery interment no 31737 grave number 11602
albert kirk grave number 11602
and i think also ednas mother lily kirk
if they have the same grave number does it mean they are buried together

take care
