Hi Elaine, Yes had a good 3-4 weeks in England. We stayed in a cottage in rural Northants and visited Leicester several times (had the rental car broken into on the 1st day outside Belgrave Hall). Caught up with lots of cousins and visited lots of graveyards! Paul

Hi All Update on Ellen Deacon - marriage certificate arrived - on time Date of marriage - 19/12/1844 Place - St Peter and St Paul's Church, Aston, Birmingham Groom - George Reay Bride - Ellen Varnam Deacon Both of full age (no numbers listed) Condition - Bachelor and Spinster Groom Occ - Buckle Maker Residence at time of marriage - both Duddeston (Birmingham) Groom Father - Thomas Reay - Bitmaker Bride Father - John Deacon - Husbandsman Witness 1 - Charles ?Hernemsley Witness 2 - Emma Reay Vicar - G O Fenwicke So it looks like the Ellenor you found on parish records may not be mine unless they lied about her father - What do you think??

Greeting’s Again ……..Clare § I would not dispel that certificate for now……… I’ve looked at the Batch No’s again for Deacon Baptisms in Swepstone. There is a Mary Deacon 4th.Jan.1789. With Parents :~ John & Eliz Deacon. Which would make Mary aprox 28 at the birth of Eleanor 1817.? Could this Mary be the Mother your Eleanor born out of wedlock Eleanor could well have been bought up by John & Eliz So… Eleanor would not know the truth & so put John as Father on Marriage Register ?

Morning Mike Have you anything on disc for Charles Henry Ward died 5 May 1858 19 Curzon Street Guessing St Georges as ever, father James Ward but registered by a Catherine Hart and same address given. He was aged 1, I thought it might be James brother and ordered the cert. There is a son Charles Henry of James that goes to Scarborough with them (born in Newark as they leave Leicester) and this James on the cert is a master fishmonger. Am sure he must be mine, too much of a coincidence Elaine
