Taking a rest, I'm brain dead now, that was so confusing! And poor little Agnes wouldn't have known whether she was coming or going with all the name changesAlma

Isle of Wight Family History Society
Folks, as the Mews were/are an Island family, you really do need to dig around in the wonderful website run by the Isle of Wight Family History Society: https://www.isle-of-wight-fhs.co.uk/.
Look at the databases, photos, members' interests, links through to IWCRO, which has some apprentice and pauper stuff online etc etc. Email questions to the Society. This FHS is a treasure trove, and always so helpful.
Swooping out for the rest of today.

It was a nice surprise to see your posting.
I got some information for John Chalmers’ Army record at the National Archives, Kew on my first genealogical search many years ago. I just wrote down the information I thought I needed. In hindsight I should have take copies or photographs but it was my first time. I have subsequently visited Kew but that time his records could not be found. He married Elizabeth Page on 28th July 1877.
Agnes Elizabeth Thompson was my grandmother and according to my mother’s diary her birthday was 24th March. Do you have any information about her adoption?
John Henry Thompson was my Father, he married my mother Helen Louise Stone in 1935.
