Hi Natalie,

The archives may have them, give me the details of who you are looking for and I'll see what I can do.



Natalie Report 19 Jul 2012 20:15


Do you have access to Basford workhouse births?



Wendy Report 19 Jul 2012 19:59

Hi Carol,

I'll do those for you as soon as I can.

Hi John,

Leave it with me and I'll do my best to help.



John Report 19 Jul 2012 17:30

Hi Wendy,

I am trying to “prove” the parentage of John Newcomb(e) died 1808 at Barnby Moor. I have no idea of his birth year but my belief is that his parents were John and Mary Newcombe nee Hawson both of Barnby Moor married 1735.

John Newcombe married Sarah Gill at St Mary (Priory), Worksop on 21 Oct 1765. This John was my 3x great grandfather so I am anxious to ensure that I have the right parents. I have the records from the Notts FHS on CD but, for marriages, it has no additional information as you know. Also there is no baptism recorded by NFHS so I cannot narrow it down that way. I am hoping that the original parish details might have the answer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


John Newcombe

thanks Wendy


Wendy Report 9 Jul 2012 12:13

Hi Quoy,

I think you mean 1897 not 1987 and Isaac married at St Nicholas Church on 3 June 1897 so can check that marriage for you.
And will do my best to find the 1923 one.



Quoy Report 9 Jul 2012 11:23

Hello Wendy

could you please look at 2 marriages for me

1.Matthew Edward Aldred Taylor wed Thirza Garton September qua 1923 Nottingham

2 Isaac Alexander Aldred Taylor wed Ada Wagstaff 1987 June qua Nottingham

Isaac should be the father of Matthew and Peter H Taylor might be down as the father fo Isaac

Thank you
