The William that Pam has found in 1871 looks very much like the one who is with Eliza in earlier censuses. I have a couple who separated, and one census has them in different places with the husband...
Don't forget Durham Records Online, which has lots of register and other transcripts. It's growing all the time, so worth checking back later if they don't have what you're looking for. Basic search...
Because of the East India Company connection, some St Helena people and events can be found in the databases on the Families in British India Society's website:

I've sometimes found that local register offices offer a more personalised service than the GRO - one that I've dealt with was happy to discuss on the phone details such as an occupation or a...

Some photo/imaging software can convert multiple JPEG files to a single PDF. I've just tried it in the ones I use most - FastStone Image Viewer and IrfanView.
In each case there's a menu item for...
In the 1950s there weren't as many crematoria as there are now, and councils may have operated them jointly - if they had them at all. Based on my own family it wouldn't have been thought odd to have...
I thought it looked more like
as nothing of the kind took place
My understanding is that if the parents aren't married, the only way for the father to be named in the registration is for him to go to notify the birth, along with the mother. Seeing both parents...

According to the entry in Grace's Guide (link provided by Steve), the Manchester address was just offices. Jones Brothers' mill was known as Bedford New Mills in Leigh, a town about 20km west of...
I've found an image of the book at the following site (Image 9/21), where you can also enlarge it and see more of it:
I agree that the...
Fair enough - but remember that between 1752 and 1837 the only non-conformists that could legally perform marriages were Quakers (Jews could too), so most non-C of E people will show up in C of E...
If he did work for the Archbishop of Canterbury, you might not want to rule out the one in Lambeth, since the Archbishop's official residence is Lambeth Palace.
What do you have to indicate that...
There are trancripts at the Lancashire OPC site:
I've never used the Kirkham ones, but others there are very full and very useful.

The information I've given relates only to Church of England registers, so if they were Wesleyans they might not appear much, especially for baptisms.
However, between 1752 and 1837 the only...

FindMyPast has images of the original registers, or you can buy a transcript from the site below - it's in their 'Huge Parish Registers' section:
I'm not 100%...
On the Children's Homes page I gave a link to it says "This is not a comprehensive list of Charity Schools but focuses on those which provided residential accommodation for at least some of their...
Thanks for mentioning the item about the "David Clark" - it adds something to what I know of my relatives who were on board.
From what you say, it sounds as though you will need to get to grips...
If you can find out which registration district it was in, you might be able to find it in one of the National Archives' census street indexes. They're no longer being updated, but the archived...
I'm not a London expert, and the only Caxton Street that Google maps has brought up for me is in Westminster, quite close to St James's Park underground station.
If that's the one you're thinking...
It's some time since 97Annie posted here, so there's a chance she may not see this.
In case she doesn't, I've found the 1841 census for Christ's Hospital by looking for the name she mentioned -...
I think I might mean Infant.
Anyway, I suspect the John born in Sheffield may turn out not to be yours, since (if I've been following correctly) there seems to be evidence that he went to America....
When you get back to the early 19th century, it's very common to find surnames spelled in a variety of ways. You'll know better than I do, but I suspect McNay and McNey are pronounced exactly the...
Thanks for finding the Hyderabad, grisel - I couldn't spot it at Ancestry and didn't have time earlier to look at the government archives site.
I'm a bit inclined to wait for Marc's return before...
Hi Marc, and welcome.
Your mention of the "David Clarke" caught my eye, as some members of my family were on the same voyage. The arrivals list for mine gives their native place, so I thought I'd...
