  2. Jurisdiction in Dutch Ports?

    I was looking at the HO 27 series "Home Office: criminal registers, England and Wales, 1805-1892" and was surprised to see in the County of Lincoln in 1823 under the July Session for the "Ports of Holland". Presumably this goes back to William of Orange, but when did it cease? Or am I just...

  3. Clerk of the Peace / Sacrament Certificate

    I am now in the middle of the 18th century, and struggling with terminology so I hope some wise heads will be able to help with this. The Reverend Francis Matson, c1700-1782, served as 'one of the justices of our said lord the king' in the East Riding of Yorkshire. From that I assume that he was...

  4. Inquests

    Some of you may have realised that I like delving into old newspapers and looking at what that says about those times. Recently I conducted a little review of reports of inquests between 1800-1809, and I thought people might be interested in what I found. I used the newspapers available from...

  5. Smile HMS Charlotte

    In 1800 HMS Charlotte caught fire when a simple accident, a flame kept alight for signal purposes fell onto some straw. The crew and officers battled the fire for 5 hours before the ship exploded. It was a horrendous accident and of its 900 complement only about 160 survive. One of the survivors...

  6. Army of Reserve, 1805, John Baker

    John Baker married Elizabeth Petrey in 1800 in Durham. Their third child was baptized in the same church, St Oswald's, in 1805, when John Baker is " a soldier in the Army of Reserve, native of North America". Other baptisms give his place of birth as New York and his occupation as "carpet weaver". ...

  8. Alternative sources to Parish registers?

    What other sources can you recommend, other than wills, for identifying the maiden names of wives when the parish marriage register (of Bardfield Saling, Essex) for the period 1713-1790 is missing and assumed deceased and unlikely to be resuscitated? I'm pretty new to the early Georgian period...

  11. Female Literacy in the 18th Century

    I am curious as to whether it would have been unusual for a woman to sign her name in the marriage register if her husband did not. Would this suggest she was a higher class than her husband, or just willfull. I was under the impression that women were expected to make their mark, especially if...

  14. Georgian kindness for an unknown man

    This is an excerpt from a burial book at Bawburgh, Norfolk in 1813. I wonder if they ever endeavoured to discover the identity of the unknown man.

  15. Literacy

    There are many differing sources on levels of literacy in the 19th century - and while no means definitive, perhaps not even objectively assessed, I nevertheless was interested to read a snippet in TNA's catalogue. I like to trawl the catalogue, I think it's a great resource and in particular...

  18. Birth to Baptism

    Hi! I am keen to find information on the world my ancestors lived in during the pre-industrial period. This would be up to the late 18c to middle 19c ie 1770s to 1850s. During this period there was a massive change to working the land for the "Lord and Master" to working in Factories. ...
