Unfortunately, the records of the Episcopal Church of Scotland are not included on the ScotlandsPeople site. There are several denominations included but not the Scottish "branch" of the Anglican...

As the story goes in our family, our ancestor Moses Wilkinson and his wife Ann Bailey (1785-1860), were in Edinburgh when their son, Charles William Wilkinson (c.1813-1880), was born. He was serving...
I confirmed an old family story that an ancestor, Moses Wilkinson, served in the British Army. The December 1806 baptism of his daughter Sarah indicates that he was serving in the East Yorkshire...

Given the options of villages beginning with "B", it also seemed to me like Burstall might at least sound like "Birdle" or "Burdsdale". But I think I need to track down the marriage of a Craven to...

Ancestry.com is famous for poor indexing and transcriptions. If you look at the actual 1861 census entry, it is clearly not Busdsdale. The combination of B-U-S-D-S-D just doesn't make any sense and...

My ancestor, Ann Bailey (born circa 1780-died 1867), has two references to her place of birth in Suffolk. When her son, Aaron Wilkinson, was baptized in Sunderland, Durham in 1810, she said her...

I'm so awfully grateful for your providing the info on both Moses Wilkinson and his wife, Ann Bailey. The entire family had Ann being born in Thornton by Bradford, West Yorkshire. Knowing that she...

Thank you, Pam! I'll try the Tyne & Wear Archives first.
Moses Wilkinson was from Sowerby, West Riding, Yorkshire and Ann Bailey was from Thornton by Bradford, West Riding. So it was surprising...

I'm unable to find the baptism of Aaron Wilkinson, baptised 23 September 1810 at Sunderland, son of Moses Wilkinson and Ann Bailey. Ancestry.com only has a transcription and the Bishop's Transcript...

Very happy to help you out. The joy is in the sharing. Before I memorialize myself in bronze for helping you, however, I'm reminded that even a broken clock is right twice a day. :)

Thank you, Janet, for the marriage of Reuben Webb. I really enjoy the combined efforts of so many helpful & knowledgeable people in the B-G forums.
First, just for the sake of accuracy, I'll...

I found the 1891 census entry in Hammersmith, Saint Paul Hammersmith, you were referring to at 73 Cardross Street:
Thomas C. Webb, 26, Horse Keeper, born Glouster.
Theresa J. Webb,...

Here is the marriage information for the man you're looking for:
Place of marriage: All Saints Church, Notting Hill, Kensington, Middlesex
Date of marriage: December 16,...
Really Desley, I need to thank YOU. Here I thought I'd wasted several hours digging after these Lancletts and Wisemans. I just couldn't make any kind of connection. Your note brought a wonderful...

It didn't sound like rambling to me but then I probably ramble quite a bit...sometimes ramble...oftentimes ramble...OK, I ramble continuously.
Your research on your paternal line just proves that...

Bricklayer to undertaker? It begs the question: Why? LOL.
Perhaps the work was steadier. :)

It turns out Thomas Lewis DID become an undertaker after all:
1891 London, St. Marylebone, Rectory, District 10, 1 Bird Street:
Thomas Lewis, 62, undertaker, born...
Found the family back in Southampton in the 1871 census. I haven't yet found any connection between the Sims and Lanclett/Wiseman families.
In the 1871 Hampshire census for Saint...

Sorry about the delay. The Mrs. and I just watched the DVD, "The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" with Jennifer Garner & Matthew McConaughey. Very cute movie. Cut into research time. :)

Great follow up, Mike! I've got to get some breakfast in my gullet but that census info will be a real help when I can get started looking through baptisms and such.
Your gravedigging partner,

Sad to say I was able to discover very little about his war record. The only information available through Ancestry.com was:
Lewis, Francis John

Folks, I'm going to have to wrap it up for the night...after midnight here and my meds are slowing kicking in.
However, I'm going to bookmark this page and work on both Lewis and Lane tomorrow. ...

Appears to be 6 Hertford Place based on the following pages.

Yes, ma'am...I'll be working on the Lanes next and our fellow I hope will track down Thomas Lewis and see if a bricklayer in 1871 indeed later became an undertaker.
