Re: Edward Jopling/Jobling 1828-1892

Have you thought of contacting the Durham Mining Museum and see if they have any information?

They have quite a detailed website as well.

Re: Arthur Kemp Norwich

I didn't have a look any further but it may be worth doing a search to see if there are any other articles about him or the family.

Re: ITV confirms the line up for the brand new series of DNA Journey

One of the celebs is Alan Carr who was featured on WDYTYA some while ago. He was one of the few celebs they had who I really didn't like. He seemed to be proud of an ancestor who was a deserter from what I remember.

Re: London Soldiers' Home

Wouldn't at least one party have to have an address within the parish the church was situated in? If they had both given addresses in Colchester wouldn't that have precluded them from marrying elsewhere?
