red mail Peachey
We are looking for the parents and family of William Peachey (Petchy), born about 1781 in Soham. We think he married Ann Sharpe in Isleham on 17.06.1802.. One child was a William born about 1808. We believe his parents may possibly have been Thomas & Elizabeth Peachey, but not sure. Any help welcome. Bas.
red mail Stubbings
My grandfather Matthew Stubbings came from Soham, Cambs, and his family had lived around that area for generations. He was there at the time of the 1891 census, but by 1898 he was living in Nottingham where he married my Grandma. His brother Benjamin settled in Nottingham too. I've got the names and dates of the family for 2 generations back, but it would be great to find out about their lives. He lived in a place called Shade.

red mail Thomas Ellis Newton
Thomas married Sophie Canham in 1847 in Soham, then spent time in Chesterton gaol in 1851-2. Several children were born, the last being Richard in 1859 and in the 1861 census Sophie is described as a widow. Trouble is, no record of Thomas's death can be found. Does anyone know what happened to him? I would welcome any Newton contacts.
red mail Pleasance in Soham - links
I am trying to unravel some connections about my family in their various moves to London. My great-grandmother was Lucy Pleasance, whose family had lived in Soham for a couple of generations having come from nearby Burwell and later Barnwell (St Andrew the Less in Cambridge). Family tradition had it that 110 Brixton Hill was an important address for the family, since Uncle Jim and Aunty Polly lived there. It was where my aunt believed that those of her father's generation going to London for work first started out. But she hhad no idea who Jim and Polly were, except that they were from Granny Lucy's side. I have now discovered the names of Jim and who I presume must be Polly, they are James Taylor and his wife Mary Martha. James Taylor was born in the Soham area, subject to the census you read, his parents were William and Mary Taylor who lived at the time of the 1861 census at East Fen Common, Soham. William had died before the 1871 and Mary had remarried to a William Norman (1865) and they lived in Bank Side, Isleham. (They were at Hall Street, Speed Lane, Soham by 1881) In my searches in Brixton I was researching Bartley Road, which no longer exists, near St Saviour's church. My great grandparents married in that church and the address they both gave was 39 Bartley Street. In my reearches I found no fewer than four houses with connections to the Taylors and Normans of Soham and Isleham. 31 was the address of Rutter Norman and his wife Sophie and family (of Soham)in 1901 census; 35 was the address in 1901 of William Taylor and his family, he was the brother of James Taylor who was living at 39 Bartley Street with his family. This last family included 21 year old William, who was to marry a girl called Rosanna and have a boy called Stanley William Taylor - and they lived by 1905 at 33 Bartley Street. In 1911 James, his wife Mary Martha, their children, a grandson and James's mother, Mary Norman, and aunt, Sophia, were living at 110 Brixton Hill. My problem is that I know that these Taylors and Normans are linked to the Pleasances of Soham, but cannot find out how. Can anyone shed any light on the marriage between James Taylor and Mary (marriage circa 1876, probably in Soham) and William Taylor and Mary (later Norman) (marriage circa 1855-60)in Soham. I particularly need to know what the link, if any, is to thePleasance family who lived at Mere Side, and Hunt's Corner and other places - by the 1930s were near the Downfield Mill. Any help will be most helpful. John

My father's maternal ancestors came from Soham and moved to Lancashire in the middle of the 19th century. I would like to hear from any one who has links to the Mantle and Easy families of who has information about these migrations to the industrial north.
red mail HAZLEWOOD
I am looking for any information on the HAZLEWOOD family. SOPHIA HAZLEWOOD born about 1819 had a daughter called SOPHIA (possible surname GEORGE or HAZLEWOOD) born about 1837 in Soham? In 1841 Census Thomas Sophia & daughter Sophia lived in Hollen St London, she later married THOMAS WILLIAM GEORGE in 1842 in London and went on to have 8 children in all. The nmarriage certificate shows SOPHIA's father as JOHN HAZLEWOOD occupation "Gamekeeper", presumably in Soham. Any information would be greatly appreciated. UPDATED INFORMATION :- I am now fairly sure that the Sophia Hazlewood I am looking for was the daughter of John & Mary Hazlewood and she was baptised in Dec' 1817. John Hazlewood was an Inn Keeper at the Red Lion, Soham until about 1830. John & Mary had other children - Eliza born 1825 & a son, John born in 1830 (who later moved to Litchurch, Birmingham). The only trace I can find of Sophia Hazlewoods daughter in 1837 is that of a Baptism in September 1937 of a baby girl to Sophia Hazlewood a "Single Woman", however the girl was baptised "Victoria Isaacson". I think this is the Sophia & daughter that I am seeking - mother & daughter may have moved to London, where she met my Gt Gt Gt Grandfather (they may have changed her daughters name). ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED
