James heath
My many times G Grandfather James Heath was born about 1670. The Parish record of his death states "shotte to death at Stone" and he was buried on 20 Nov 1714 at St Giles Church Newcastle under Lyme. I have been trying to find out the circumstances surrounding this entry. Can anyone help? Also he married an Alice or Ann ( possibly Alice Stimson) but I have seen and now can't find again an entry of a record that stated she was "born over the water". I have taken this to mean in Ireland but again any help would be appreciated in unravelling. Sue
red mail Ireland as a location Newcastle ?
Some Newcastle BOULT ancestors are listed in the UK, Poll Books and Electoral Registers, 1538-1893 under Staffordshire, 1832, as freemen. While most others in the pages I have seen online are listed as "place of abode" in recognisable Newcastle Addresses, like Stubbs Gate and High St, these two ancestors and one other person on the page are listed under "place of abode" as Ireland. Was there an old place name of Ireland in Newcastle ??

red mail Hulme/Pick - marriage of
Really stuck on this one, desperately need help. My great grandfather, James Hulme b. Ipstones, Leek 1864, married Rachel Pick, b Jansie, India, 1865. They married in June 1890, Newcastle Under Lyme, Staffordshire. I can go way back with the Hulmes, but I am totally stuck on Rachel. All that I know about her is that her father was Henry Pick, and that he was a soldier, presumably serving in India in 1865. I have no idea where else to go with this. It has come as a complete shock to the family because none of my elderly relatives had any idea until I searched the 1901 census of the India connection. Because my dad was very dark, we do not even know if Rachels mother was Indian or British. Are there any other descendants anywhere who could help? I know this is a long-shot, but i've exhausted all options.... ...By the way, we believe Rachel died quite young, and that James went on to marry a lady called Mary. This would have been in Wolverhampton, where James and Rachel had moved to by 1901
I was a very young boy when i last saw my Grandad alive in the 1950`s his name was JOHN LINDOP AGED ABOUT 80/90 when he died so he must have been born around 1860/70 and he had moved from NEWCASTLE UNDER LYME to MACCLESFIELD he was an x Railway man.
