Awful but interesting!
I have tracked an ancestor's service with the 7th Dragoon Guards from his enlistment in 1831 to his discharge in 1846. I was surprised at the time that he spent in hospital over the years. This does...
Many thanks for your help.
That is the one I'm looking at (on FamilySearch) but there is no occupation or address, just 'Institution'. Could it be a transcription error? Your information sounds more relevant (and nicer!)
I have found an ancestor, David Goodhew in the 1841 census at Shorne in Kent. He is located in an 'Institution' but there are no further clues. Can anyone help me identify this institution?...
That's great - thank you. I knew I could rely on Brit-Gen t come up with the answer!!
I am trying to identify the location of a street I an old photo and the only clue I can see is a sign for S Fielder & Co Corset Factory. I have tried searching the internet but to no avail. Does...

I have loads to do in Kent as well as places to visit so will make the trip. Might check Ancestry though - some PRs are viewable online.

No one else has any notations on the burials page I have other than the standard 'widow', 'son of...' etc. No other occupations listed, but Richard is the only adult male on the page. I'll have to...

Managed to scan my copy of the PR. I can only see 'house keeper' but maybe other eyes see something else?

Love that idea :)

I am looking at the original PR. I will try and post a copy.
25-01-2017 11:47 AM
I don't think so, the writing is pretty clear.

I have found the burial entry of my ancestor in May 1744 in Mereworth, Kent. The entry simply states "Richard Goodhew house keeper".
Could this indicate an occupation of some kind or refer to his...

That looks a really good possibility, thanks. ...

Yes, quite right. A slip of the keyboard :)

That's a lovely photo of Little Earl Street almach, thank you for the link. It looks just the sort of street a jeweller would have premises.

Please can anyone help me as I am tearing my hair out!!
I have a copy of the original Baptism entry for Mary Ann Randall at St George, Bloomsbury on 25th January 1818. Her parents are Thomas and...
Thanks, but I'm not actually researching the family, just trying to contact someone who is as I have something worthless monetarily but invaluable to a descendant :)
