Hi Wendy,

if you have any time when you next visit the archives, could you have a look at Newark on Trent. Seeking pre 1599, Aches/Arch/Atch/Etche/Etches. There is an Edward Arch/Atch having a daughter Alice 1608, looking for him and any others of those names. Many thanks

Please could you have a look on your bmd disc for Notts. for the baptism of a Thomas Foster Haywood who was born in the June quarter of 1871. I've no idea where he might have been baptised so if it's a long job don't worry.


Elizabeth Report 14 Feb 2013 14:22

Hi Derek,

Hope you are well, I've got you marriage so if you pm me your email address I will get it sent to you.



Moira Report 10 Feb 2013 21:09

Thank you so much Wendy


Wendy Report 10 Feb 2013 13:04

Hi Moira,

Yes I'll have a look for you but as the full Will is at the Prerogative Court of York Nottingham archives wont have the full Will but just part of it and may not tell you who was mentioned in it but will see what we find.



Moira Report 9 Feb 2013 21:28

Hello Wendy, I rang Nottinghamshire Archives today and was told

We have checked our various indexes and wills and have found the following reference to George Ince within the index to wills proved at the Prerogative Court of York.

Ince, George, stone cutter of Mansfield; will registered 20 Jun 1812
could you take a look at it for me to see if it says who inherited from him please.
They have said that I should be able to get a full copy from Wakefield, I don't need the will, just trying to find where my Gx3 Grandmother got her wealth.
I would be most grateful


Derek Report 9 Feb 2013 14:54

Thanks Wendy......first class as usual......would love a copy of the entry if you can manage it.......perhaps by PM so I can download it??



Wendy Report 9 Feb 2013 14:02

Hi Derek,

Marriage of Robert Goodwin & Florence Walker was at St Leodegarius Basford on 6 June 1892 I'll have a look for details when I'm in the archives, would you like a copy of the marriage record.



Wendy Report 9 Feb 2013 14:00

Hi Reggie,

Leave it with me and I'll look for you when I'm next in the archives next week as my CD's don't cover Granby.



Reggie Report 7 Feb 2013 17:13

Hi Wendy

May I impose on your generosity and ask for a baptism lookup for Thomas Harvey c1768 in Granby, I believe, and for his wife Anne Widdowson c1768, probably in Kneeton.

They married in Kneeton 26 Nov. 1793, but I haven't thus far been able to trace either of them prior to that.

Anything you can find will be much appreciated


Derek Report 7 Feb 2013 16:07

Wendy m'duck.........I know most of the story, and i could probably go to Notts Archives myself if i weren't so lazy..but would be grateful, yet again, for your help....

Robert Goodwin married Florence Walker June Qtr 1892 Basford District...I know all about the weirdness of the Basford District.but this really was Basford...Old Basford.
If it was a Church wedding it was probably either St Aidan or St Leodegarius.and of course it may have been \register Office.

The couple and theri children lived in Old Basford on successive Censuses..He from Kenton Norfolk, and she from lenton Nott'm..would be nice to just tidy it up with date and place.

As always, my disgustingly sychophantic gratitude.

Derek. xx

Hi All,

I'm back to going to the archives now if anyone wants a lookup doing.

All the best



Wendy Report 18 Oct 2012 11:03

Hi Chris,

Yes I'm much better now Thank you. I wasnt sure if it was a S or T in Sherard but I'm glad I got it right but had never seen it as a first name.

Wendy :-D :-D :-D :-D


Wendy Report 18 Oct 2012 10:59

Hi Jan,

Yes I'll have a look for you next time I'm at the archives maybe next week.



sydenham Report 18 Oct 2012 09:54


I wonder if on your next Notts archive visit you could check a marriage for me. In June qtr 1920 Alfred Herring married Edith Bentley. They both lived in 1911 in Nelson Rd Daybrook. Also in that same qtr Mary J Herring died. it is suspected that Alfred, who was Mary's widower , then immediately married Edith who was 25 yrs younger! If the record says who Alfred's father is then that would answer our suspicions. The family used to use the church at Arnold pre 1911 although Daybrook might have been nearer. if you can find the marriage and burial easily, that would be wonderful.

Kind regards

Hi Wendy,

Thank you so much for the above info, I really appreciate it. I've checked the 1851 census, Sherard is correct

I hope you are feeling much better than you were. I will probably come back to you to go further back with the Pashley's if that's okay.



Wendy Report 17 Oct 2012 09:58

Hi Chris,

Sorry to have taken so long. Here's the marriage details you asked for:

William Pashley aged 21yrs a Labourer of Clumber father Joseph Pashley a Labourer.
Ellen Gott full age of Clumber father David Gott a Labourer
witnesses (not sure of this first name) Sherard Lamb and Mary Ann Pashley.

If you what a copy of the marriage let me know and I'll get it next time I'mkin the archives.
