Hi Sheila Could you please look up a marriage for Charles PATEMAN in Hertfordshire. It would be in the 1850s, and I think he married Elizabeth GLAZEBROOK, but can't be sure. The marrige could have taken place in either Stevenage or Hertford itself. Thank you so much Lisa xx

Hi Sheila, Wonder if you could do a look up on my Gt Grandparents from Newcastle. Thought my maiden name was Manning but have found my Gt. Grandparents were Robert Menham and Catherine Young. They had a daughter Margaret Menham 1849, son Robert Mennon 1853. Is it possible to find any other children born in Newcastle. They came to London around 1859 and my Grandfather William Manham was born 1860 but do not know if there were more in London. Your help would be appreciated. Regards Carol

Hi Carole I could only find Robert Menham Christened: 9/9/1853 Father Robert Menham Mother Catherine Recorded at Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland Collection at All Saints I dont know if you might be interested in these names but I found a few Mennim from the same area and the collection was all at All Saints. The only thing is they are dated 1814 - 1822 They are the children of George and Margaret Mennim If you are interested let me know as I thought the name was similar when looking through the records Cheers Sheila

Hi Shelia, Wondered if you could look up the birth of JOHN ANDREWS born 1854 in Bristol. Also the marriage of the same John Andrews with HANNAH H (she was born in Cardiff in 1854) I think the would have been married about 1877/78. Many thanks Julie

Hi Rick The only Willders I can find are in Gloucester, some of your names come up in London, Westminster, but with only one ' l ' and prior to 1740. If you want these let me know and shall send them to you Cheers Sheila


Pamela Report 6 Oct 2005 14:27

Hi Sheila Please could I trouble you with another marriage look up? John Cook/e + Susannah ? In either Hartland or Ilfracombe Devon the earliest child I have on my record for them was born c1798 so if you could please try 1795 +/- 5 years that would be very helpful. Many Thanks Pam
