Re:~ the lookup for Wills in Rutland…….

I’m sure you have been given the wrong information regarding theses Wills.

ALL those ref No.’s you gave me in fact was the ref No’s for the two marriages of Dorothy Godgebrooke née Gower.

These came from a Disc that the Latter day Saints used but it had wrong Ref No’s on it which has caused total confusion. ……..

The details read thus :~

North Luffenden Parish Church Rutland.

Registers reads thus :~

MARRIAGES ANNO DOMINI :~ 1824.
Page. 11.
Entry. No. 31.

William Godgebrooke of the Parish of Normanton Bachelor.
Dorothy Gower. Of this Parish. Spinster.
Married in this Church by Banns
With the consent of her Father Thomas Gower.
This Fifteenth day of November.
One Thousand Eight Hundred and Twenty Four.
By Me W. Hardyman. Rector.
Both signed by Marks
William = + Dorothy = X.

Wit’s :~
Thomas Gower by mark = X
Rebecca Gower.
Ann Beasley.
Ann Hales.

ANNO DOMINI :~ 1828.

Page. 13.
Entry, No. 37.

Henry Broughton. of the Parish of Edith Weston. Bachelor.
Dorothy Godgebrooke. Of this Parish. WIDOW.
Married in this Church by Banns
By Me :~ W. Hardyman. Rector.
This Twenty Eight Day of January.
One Thousand Eight Hundred and Twenty Eight.

Wit’s :~
Rebecca Webban.
William Broughton. By Mark = +

Also checked out if any wills did exist for any of the above
But drew a blank I’m afraid. ……..
The Head Librarian said that that area would have had the Quarter sessions in Stanford. Which would come under Northamptonshire Records Office.

Sorry. ……..

Hi again Mike,

Would you be able to look up somebody's workhouse record for me please?

Joseph Wells was born in Husbands Bosworth in 1811. In 1891 he is still living in Husbands Bosworth and by 1901 he is in the Market Harborough Union Workhouse. He died later in 1901.

I did go to the records office on Wednesday, but they were too short staffed to get the records for me to see and I can't go again for another few weeks.
