red mail DANIEL ADDIS of Hereford & of Olveston, Glos. Herefordshire (County, HEF)
On 5 June 1718, Daniel Addis, cooper, was admitted & sworn a Freeman of the City of Hereford  for 20s  late apprentice to Richard Phillips of Herefordshire, cooper. In 1741 & 1747, Daniel Addis of Olveston, Gloucestershire, voted in the City of Hereford Parliamentary Elections. Does anyone have any information about Daniel Addis. Jean.
red mail GEORGE BAKER of Hereford 1858 & 1861 Hereford
I am hoping that someone can suggest a way of solving this problem. Was George Baker of the City of Hereford in 1858 & 1861 the same person as George Baker of Geneva, Switzerland, a famous musical instrument maker in the 1870s to 1890s. If you search the internet - "George Baker" musical instrument maker, you will discover several items about him - including one of his instruments dated c1893 sold by Bonhams in 2008. I believe that GB of Geneva was an Englishman. The GB in Hereford 1858 advertised that he was a watchmaker & clockmaker. In the 1861 Census for Hereford, GB was staying at a pub - 27 years old, born London, a musical instrument maker. Any suggestions about how to prove that GB of Hereford was also the BG of Geneva would be greatly appreciated. Jean.
red mail JAMES ADDIS of Mordiford 1881 Census Hereford
Can anyone read the occupation of James Addis of Mordiford in the 1881 Census. He was a 68 year old widower born at Allensmore. Living with him was his married daughter Rebecca Bailey. James's occupation consisted of two words "? cleaner". Can anyone read the word before "cleaner". The occupation has been translated as "clock cleaner"; however, on every other document, he has been described as labourer or agricultural labourer. His father & brothers were all labourers or agricultural labourers. The change from labourer to clock-cleaner is so big that it is unbelievable. What do other people think? References: Mordiford, village Backberry, Piece No. 2589, folio 54, page 12. Jean
red mail Albert James Adams Hereford
Does anyone have any information on Albert James Adams believed to have been born in Herefordshire. He married Annie Cartwright in Cardiff in July 1909. He was 25years old and Annie was 23 years old when they married. Alberts father was Thomas who had unfortunately passed away by the time of the marraige? I will be grateful for any information on either the Adams or Cartwright families. Thankyou.
red mail ELIZABETH MORRIS of Hereford 1841 Hereford
Can anyone read the occupation of ELIZABETH MORRIS (wife of RICHARD MORRIS) in the 1841 Census. Richard Morris was a pavier - i.e. in the business of supplying & laying paving stones & doing kerbing. His business was financial successful - so it is hard to understand why his wife had an occupation. Her occupation looks like FRUITER - but a dealer in fruit is usually called a FRUITERER. Another possibility is SPINSTER. Richard died in 1846 at Hereford. I cannot find Elizabeth Morris in 1851 Census - or Jane Morris (presumably their daughter) (bonnet maker in 1841) in 1851 Census. In 1841, family was living at Victoria Street, parish of St Nicholas, City of Hereford. Hopefully, someone with better eyesight than mine can read that occupation. Piece 433/5. Enumeration District "part of 5". Folio 8a. Page 28. Jean
red mail DANIEL GREEN of HEREFORD Hereford
Can anyone read the occupation of DANIEL GREEN (aged 30) in the 1841 Census for the City of Hereford. I found him & his wife Catherine and some of their children in the 1851 Census at Newton, Lancashire - and in the 1861 Census at Tunstall, Staffordshire. It is the 1841 occupation which is important to me. In 1841, the family were at Mountain Yard, Bewell Street, parish of All Saints, City of Hereford. Piece No. 433/1. Enumeration district 2. Folio number 11b. Page 7. I'm hoping that someone with better sight than mine can read the 1841 occupation. Jean.
red mail Henry Powell a butcher in Hereford Hereford
Hi, I am searching for my father's father. My father was an "orphan" sent to Canada in 1937. His father is listed as Henry Powell a butcher in Hereford on dad's release form (to be sent to Canada). The form was signed in 1936, but may have referred to in 1926/1927. (No father listed my father's birth certificate) My father's name is Frederick Henry Bishop (mother's surname), he was born in 1927 in Cardiff, Wales at a birthing home for unwed mothers. Dad's mother was Violet Nellie Bishop, born 1900 in Bristol (moving to Bromyard area soon after) Her father John Bishop was born in Pencombe in 1860. (Her mother was Annie Maria Orford also of the Bromyard area. They lived mostly in Bromyard area, Pencombe (at Mill Farm) and Bishop's Frome. Violet who went by Nellie later, lived (off and on between 1927 and 1994) on Villa Street in Hunderton, Hereford. The closest to a match in the 1939 registers is a Sydney Harry, butcher in Hereford, but dad is not a dna match to his granddaughter. Any clues could be helpful. Thank-you, Lori Krogel
