hi sarah ive got a sarah hathaway but she was born in you know your sarahs parents? susie on hubbys puter


Dawn Report 20 Jan 2004 10:35

Hi Susie I only came upon them because I am getting frustrated trying to find my Norris bunch. I misread the 1861 Census to read Sarah Norris. Some kind person did an 1851 lookup for me and said that they couldn't find a Sarah Norris, but that there was a Leah Norris, married to an Emmanuel Norris - he was born in Turville, she was born in Ibstone. On looking at the curly writing again it does look like she was a Leah. I only came across William Norris marrying Sarah Hathaway because the date of 1848 could have and still could be feasible. I get so tied up in knots doing this don't you? Regards Sarah on her own puter.

hi sarah on her own yea,i do get tied up in knots!! im getting so confused at the moment:( not only am i doing the hathaway line(nans dads line)but also nans mums line which is smith!!!!.they come from gloucester.but were in wycombe in 1881. now to top it all ive just had a breakthrough with my mums side,from london..its a good job i finish work early in the there is a norris family living in cressex rd at booker,are they related to you?? susie on hubbys puter


Dawn Report 20 Jan 2004 11:01

Hi Susie Still on hubby's puter then!!! I don't know to be honest Susie. I have a Jesse Norris as the only son born in 1852 in Ibstone. He was my G.Grandmother, Sarah's elder brother. Jesse, Sarah and my G>Grandfather Caleb Bird from 'Stokie' all moved down to Sunbury-on-Thames, Middx in approx 1874/5/. Jesse married a Sunbury girl in 1875. Caleb and Sarah married in 1876. Regards Sarah.

Dawn Report 20 Jan 2004 14:22

Hi Susie Are you still on hubby's computer? I've done quite a bit of housework and been out for a few bits of food. How long have you been researching? I tentatively started about five years ago. I was quite thrilled when 'Stokie' and Ibstone appeared on the 1901 Census stating my G. Grandparents were from the area. My dear dad always said 'no' we're Sunbury born and bred. Anyway, speak soon hopefully Regards Sarah


Terry Report 20 Jan 2004 16:17

hi sarah yes,im still on hubbys puter:( ive only been doing my tree since last year.ive been helping hubby with his for 10 years!! like your dad,my dad thought that his family were born and bred in booker,so i thought id do a bit of detective work. the keep family arrived in aylesbury in 1760 and that is where they stayed until my g.grandad moved to buckland common in chesham in the 1880s.they then arrived in booker in gramp was 2yrs old then. dad was shocked to say the best get dinner cooked now cos hubby will be home at 5.praps he can then have a look at my puter:(( susie on hubbys puter

Sarah There are still some Birds living in Stoken. Sid & Doris. They have a son Michael who must be about 37.


Dawn Report 21 Jan 2004 08:48

Hello Len I wondered where you had got to!!! I heard there were Birds still there. Do you know Sid and Doris? My brother's son is a Michael Bird too!!! Regards Sarah

Len of the Chilterns Report 21 Jan 2004 23:27

Sarah Yes, I know Sid and Doris. Saw Sid in the vilage a couple of days ago and gave him a wave (was in my car). My son and his were school friends, I was unwell for a couple of days so did not get on the pc. OK now though. Len


Dawn Report 22 Jan 2004 07:44

Hello Len Glad you're feeling better. I wonder if they are distant rellies of mine? Regards Sarah

Len of the Chilterns

Len of the Chilterns Report 22 Jan 2004 22:46

Hi Sarah Send me an e-mail that I can printout, giving details of some of your Bird rellies in Bucks, and I will ask them. Give some details of your connection. Len

hi sarah hi len sarah my puters fine now..i think!! had it all checked out ,we thought,along with everyone else that it was the mother board but it turned out to be the hard drive.aparently it wasnt compatible with the mother board. but when we went to restart it it started first time???im so sons puter didnt even recognise the h/d nor the neighbours ,so summay isnt right. its great news that len might be able to help you isnt it. ive just been contacted by a GC member.we share the same sooo susie


Trish Report 23 Jan 2004 11:33

Susie, saw you on the members board last night (before I was very rudely thrown off!) and you mentioned bacon badger. Haven't had that for years - will now put it on the menu for next week. Wish I could cook it like my mum did!
