My great great grandfather James Biggs was born in Chester on 8/8/1807, and baptised at St Marys on the Hill.

I cannot find anyrecord of them anywhere else although the 1841 census has an Elizabeth and William Biggs aged 45 and 50 living at Brooks Alley Handbridge, and William alone in the 1851 census with his birthplace listed as Howden Yorkshire.I now know that William was the brother of James and that he was born at HAWARDEN Flintshire, and not in Yorkshire,that he married in 1834 and that his wife was Elizabeth Cash.I have also found that James had a sister Ann who was born in Ruabon and who married Thomas Denson in Chester in 1821. James moved to BRISTOL where He became a Poor Rate/Tax Collector. I BELIEVE HE MARRIED for the first time in about 1835, but was then widowed.He married for a second time in 1847, to Matilda Page from Wotton under Edge in Gloucestershire. They had at least 3 children Thomas, Matilda Jane and the youngest, Job Federick who was my great grandfather. Does anyone know anything about the BIGGS family in CHESTER at that time please?

My father sadly lost his mother in January of this year. He has now found out something that has concerned him for many years, that his dad was not his birth father. It is now too late to ask his mother questions he wish he had done. In December 1943 my Nan was stationed in the ATS at Saighton Barracks, Chester, UK, she was 19 years old. My father has spoke to one of her friends whom she worked with in the Army and her name is Mari Marshall she was knicknamed Ongar. My nan's name was Tamar Garrard she came from Ongar, Essex and lived there all her life. We now know that she met a man called Mr G Moss during her time in Chester. Mr G Moss was either a Civilian or visitor to the camp and sounded like one of the beatles (accent). Mr G Moss was taken to court to pay child maintenance, which he did and never missed a payment. My father has a copy of the court hearing and how much it was back then too. There was no first name, date of birth or address to give us any clues. This is where the Trisha Goddard show on Channel five have got involved. They was intrigued with this story and asked my dad Jim and I if we would like to do an appeal on the show. A journalist has also been in contact and wants to publish the story too. Thankyou

Nagle and Crawforth in Chester
Having just discovered last month that a John Enoch NAGLE married my great great aunt Louisa CRAWFORTH. They married in 13th October 1875 in Kensington London. This information I have taken from their marriage certificate. The writing on it isn't fantastic and very hard to decipher. We've managed to make a bit of progress thanks to another researcher helping me to decipher the writing on the certificate. His profession could be a cartier. His father from what I can read is Patrick (Bartholomew) NAGLE. Again with help of other researchers we've managed to find out John was born in France very possibly Bouologne. We know both he and his father lived there. At some stage the family moved to Cheshire as seen on census again another researcher sent me this. I really apperciate how helpful people are. It does mean a lot If anyone has any further information on their children, descendants or is a descendant. I'd love to hear and get more information on this branch of the family. You may even know about branches of my family.

A TAILOR IN CHESTER & MACCLESFIELD
I would dearly love info on a tailor in Chester c. 1840-1850. My ancestor, Job Turner was actually born in Macclesfield and was a tailor but was only 16 years old when he committed a crime. He continued to work as a tailor while he did his time. I suspect he was apprenticed but have no proof. Also, I wonder if the court was in Chester but he didn't actually move there. Anyway, he was then granted a Royal Pardon but with the proviso to emigrate to Australia. He did, c. 1846.
