Is our Mary Ann Rainey actually Mary Ann Kidd?

We only have her in the records as Mary Ann Rainey (1859 -) her married name, she married Samuel Rainey. I looked up the BMD records for the area, searching for Raineys and found this.

This would be great if it's them as a) we could get the certificates and b) it's a whole new branch of the tree...

Kidd family tree, we must have some pirates in there then surely?

Thomas Christmas (1531 - 1589)

RE: Thomas Christmas (christmas tree!)

Found this post on an ancestry forum regaring Thomas Christmas:

The following information was given to me via email. I dont know who originally did the research (some was done by Henry CHRISTMAS) so I can not vouch for its accuracy without sources. It is however an excellent guideline. I do believe this family tree has gone back one more generation but I am unable to access it as I dont have the updated version to read it. I am happy to send the files I do have to you as we appear to by family. So, gday cuz.

Thomas b? d1589 of Northchapel,SSX and Binsted HAM (yeoman of Eastlands).
1st m=? (your line)
2nd m=1582 Agnes LICKFOLD (LYKEFOLD and other variations)
NOTE: Some online sources say that he only married once and that your line is from Thomas & Agnes. I have also seen various variations of how much he presumably donated to the Armada fund in 1588. Some say 瞿5 othes say up to 瞿25.

Balthasar d1603 North Chapel m=1580 Chiddingfold SRY to Margaret RAPLEY

William b1583 Lurgshall m= AGNES (dont know if this is first of surname)

Henry b1645 d?(clothier) m=1674 Farnham to Ann BRIDGER d1703

Henry b1675 Lurgashall m=?

John b1719 d1782 Kirdford (yeoman) m= Elizabeth ELLIOTT

William b1762 d1837 Pentworth (farmer) m=1785 Kindford to Ann COOPER b1761 d1828

Samuel b1799 Pentworth (carpenter) m=1820 Brighton to Elizabeth DAVIS

FREDERICK b1825 Brighton (carpenter) m=1849 Brighton to Elizabeth Ann TILL. They emigrated to New Zealand in 1862/1864

There's loads of Sherwood info that we don't have on this site

This sounds a bit jumbled, but is it really our Joseph Gross Sherwood? Well it definitely is, the names and the dates match, but does it have unrelated people's info mixed in? Are our Sherwoods originally from Northamptonshire?

Gross Joseph Sherwood was born in 1826, at birth place, to William Sherwood and Martha Sherwood (born Gross).
William was born circa 1796, in Irthlingborough, Northamptonshire, England.
Martha was born circa 1794, in Rushden, Northamptonshire, England.
Gross had 6 siblings: Edmund Sherwood, James P Sherwood and 4 other siblings.
Gross married Evelina Sherwood (born Dore) in 1847, at age 21 at marriage place.
Evelina was born circa 1828, in Portsea, Portsmouth. Hampshire.
They had 10 children: Joseph Gross Sherwood, Emma Dore (born Sherwood) and 8 other children.
TweetComment / reply has Sherwood extracts from the 1901 census

Maybe we've looked these up before but it looks like it has one of my great grandfathers Leonard SHERWOOD (1899 -), Nan's dad and his parents (my great great grandparents) Henry Sherwood and Mary Rout. He was two years old. Looks like there's more than one household here so I've added a space where I think the gaps should be as normally the head of the household would be first. Maybe they all lived next door to one another? The original data is here, well the original transcription from the census.

Confusing page mentioning our James Cole Clarke here

102016 maybe some standard format but I find it hard to follow. No new ancestors for us but some new distant Australian cousins I suppose. I will get in touch and offer them some detail updates for the Clarkes.

Just spotted today that Google is no longer reporting errors on my people pages, but only because I'm adding "home location: England" to everyone. I should not have to, and its not true anyway.

Updated info on Charles Valentine Clarke from Encyclopedia Titanica

Some updated info here, I never thought to look for him in the other censuses. There are details of other places Charles Valentine Clarke lived and who he lived with before heading off on the Titanic.

There's also a fanciful report from the Cleveland Plain Dealer quoting his wife Ada Maria saying how she parted from him, and she heard the band playing a him and saw everyone kneeling as she drifted off in the very last place in the very last lifeboat. Sounds like journalistic licence to me.

The Tee family at Worlds End

Just heard from cousin Della that the Tee family lived at Worlds End in Hampshire, that's where the Chairmakers pub is. Think I've been there though not for a very long time.

Found this interesting blog post which mentions a newspaper article. I've heard of these names while searching records, but can't find documentation for the Tee family that we do have...
