Loveless family
One of my direct relatives is Elizabeth Loveless, who married Charles Stickland in Piddletrenhide in June 1818. The witnesses were Frances Loveless and John Vincent. Can anyone tell me which branch of the many Loveless families Elizabeth belonged to? She was born in Piddletrenthide around 1795-7.
Roberts, Inkpen,
My father told me many times that he used to visit his "Uncle"in Piddletrenthide during the 1st World War and early 1920s. Does anyone have information on Inkpens or Roberts who were residents in that village or vicinity at that time?

red mail Taylor Catherine b 1871
Taylor Catherine Fanny b 1871 in Piddletrenthide. I am looking for any info at all on Catherine Taylor or her father who was born 1828 in Bruisyard Suffolk and moved to Dorset having married her mother Emma Cornish b. 17.1.1828 from Bruisyard. They had 5 children Samuel John David 1859, Edwin 1861, James 1864, Alfred 1869 & then Catherine Fanny. They appear on the 1861 census as living at Piddletrenthide, Dorset, then in the Chaldon Herring 1891 census.. I would appreciate any help with their roots in Bruisyard, great grandparents Samuel Taylor, Hannah ? John CORNISH (1796) etc. Thanks
John PHILLIPS or John PHILIPS appears to have married a MARY around 1807. According to the PIDDLETRENTHIDE BAPTISMS, BISHOPS TRANSCRIPTS they baptised James 1807, George 1818 and Elizabeth 1821. The 1837 Wyke Regis marriage certificate of a Barbara PHILLIPS (to Benjamin HANSFORD of Puncknowle) states Barbara is 21 years old giving a birth year of about 1816. The Baptisms for 1816 are missing from the Bishop's Transcripts. The marriage certificate says that Barbara's father is John labourer, the transcripts for the three christenings show a father JOHN and those for George and Elizabeth say he is a labourer. Barbara Hansford (nee PHILLIPS) appears in the 1851 to 1891 censuses. Her ages as declared in the censuses all point to around 1816/7 and she declares her birth place as PIDDLETRENTHIDE. Her death certificate of 1893 declares she was 77, again giving a birth year of 1816. Does anyone have any more details about the PHILIPS/PHILLIPS family of Piddletrenthide?
red mail STURMEY
I have been given a "wild card". I believe that a SUSAN STURMEY born around 1811 who married a John Allen (Allan) may have been my grandmother. Please has anyone any info on either of these? All I have to go by is that my grandmother's name was SUSAN or SUSANNAH, that she came from Piddletrenthide and was born around 1811 and married John Allen and that she had a son called George. They were blacksmiths and moved to Sydling St Nicholas where George was born. They later lived at Stratton. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Sharon
Looking for any info on the family ALLEN, Susanna, in particular. She was listed on the 1881 census as having been born in PIDDLETRENTHIDE in 1811 and was a blacksmith by trade. Her son George, Born Sydling St.Nicholas, was my GtGt Grandfather. All info much appreciated Thanks
red mail Connections With Old, Hooper, Iles, Davis, Etc Families
Hi my Great Gandfather, Albert A. OLD, was residing in Piddletrenthide in the 1851 Census :-) He had/has very strong family ties with the HOOPER family also ILES, DAVIS ...this was pre 1819. The connections with MEADER, BERSEY,PHELPS/PHILPS families come from his sister's children and later generations after 1835. This 'branch' moved around, up to Buckinghamshire to Berkshire to Hampshire and back to Dorset by about 1901 Census :-) My G/Grandfather Albert A. OLD immigrated out to Tasmania, Australia in 1853, I am 3rd generation born Tasmanian OLD, and we have been pretty 'thin on the ground' out this way :-) My family here in Tasmania would very much like to hear from anyone who may be connected.
