  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: General Family History

    Hello folks. This is just a reminder that this forum exists. As well as general questions on family and local history; it's as good a board to use as any if you've 'lost' someone, somewhere and want to begin tracking them. I'm sure that you know the sort of thing I mean, an ancestor was...

  3. London street descriptions

    Does anyone know if there are any publications that gave a description of London streets from early 1800's? Something along the lines of Booth's poverty maps but earlier in date.

The couple's first child was baptised on 14 October the same year - I don't know the date of birth so it's possible that they married because she was pregnant and...
