Re: Thomas Eli Green - missing baptism

Those two were very much afterthoughts in terms of baptisms and probably prompted by the baptism of a cousin. The following generations were all duly welcomed into the CofE right through until me. We didn’t bother with my brother for some reason. :D

Re: Thomas Eli Green - missing baptism

Thanks Jon. No idea about the A. I only discovered the poor chap by fluke - he's born and died between census and I've never seen a tree mention him. I was curious about the gap between the wedding and my ancestor's arrival in 1864. If you can't find a baptism then I can be sure there isn't one to f...

Re: Thomas Ward marriage

Verbal history is very often all we have to go on but it can confuse things as I know very well. But then again the ‘facts’ on certs and other official records aren’t always accurate either. Family history isn’t a precise science, more a game of odds I think :D

Re: A genealogical new year's resolution or two

Resolutions for this year: 1. Stop trying to understand DNA connections! My matches are all minuscule so nothing useful will be revealed. I only wanted to know if I had Viking roots. 2. Write up the stories I’ve uncovered from a social history perspective. No one really wants to know about great unc...

Re: Notable ancestor via adoptive relatives

I haven’t any notables in my tree but I do have more than a handful of examples of ‘adoption’ glossed over ie children brought to a marriage and then assuming and passing on the family name. The facts haven’t always been obvious leading to a certain sense of disappointment and frustration on discove...

Re: Jane Elizabeth Jeffs/Juffs 1858-

I think that’s her too. Elizabeth had been born and raised in Milton Keynes. But her parents had married in the 3rd quarter of 1858 so her death could have been registered as Jeffs surely?

Re: Jane Elizabeth Jeffs/Juffs 1858-

Oooh, it’s very possible, jonwarrn. Interesting! But where was she in 1861?

Daniel is my direct ancestor, he’d just lost his wife (complications from childbirth I think) and had his eye on wife no. 2 who worked nearby.

Thank you.
