red mail Middleton
This is a very long shot! My great uncle Leslie Charles Norman Middleton was a clerk in a blanket factory in Witney between 1923-1931, after he was invalided out of the Navy. He died in the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading on 2/9/1931. Has anyone come across reference to him or his wife Leah Gladys Edna (nee Mahomet and known as Edna)in the Witney area during the 1920s/early 1930s? I believe she was a nurse in the 1920s - maybe in a naval hospital? I'm also interested if there are any records on a (?adopted) son, David Ian Middleton whose birthdate on his passport application was 19/7/1931, but which I can't find on any official record. I know he died in Australia in 1991. Thanks, Helen
red mail Beechey
Hi there I have James Beechey c1796 married to Elizabeth (unknown). He was a cabinet maker and they moved to Chester and then to London. His parents may have been John Beechey 1751 and Susannah Roberts 1757. In turn John's parents could be Joseph Beechey 1715 and Sarah Drewett 1742. Has anyone any information on this? Many thanks Karen
red mail William Busby and Hannah Bridgman
It seems well-established that an Augustine Busby had a son William about 1840, and this son married Hannah Bridgman in 1860. They had a child Mary Ann (c. 1860) and son Joseph (c. 1863). In 1871, they were apart, but Hannah reports herself as married, not widowed. William never reappears, but Hannah marries again (c. 1876) to a Thomas Smith. Meanwhil, another William (also with father Augustine) turns up in the 1880s, and marries my great grandmother Harriett Hobbs in 1888. Was this a case of bigamy? I am finding this very hard to resolve.
