Abel Whiting - Bath Runner
I read Abel Whiting's obituary. It told me he worked at the Bath Chronicle as a printer. It also said that Abel was a keen runner who won several medals. I am keen to know what races there were in Bath between 1846 and 1922.

Visiting Keevil and Sons Cabinet Makers
My father was a Cabinet Maker at Bath Cabinet Makers. One day I went with him to visit Mr Keevil at his workshop behind St Peter's Terrace on the Lower Bristol Road, Bath. I would like to know more about the links between industries on Lower Bristol Road, Bath. There are images of the Keevil workshop on Bath in Time.

Walter T Ware and Inglescombe Nurseries
Both of my grandfathers worked at Wares Nurseries on a south facing hillside between Bath and Englishcombe. Edwin Curtis Adolphus Williams was known as Ted. He went to Chelsea Flower Show, but I am not sure how many times. Alfred Sidney Allen Watts was known as Sid. Both grandfathers lived on Whiteway Road at numbers 21 and 28 / 29. I would like to know more about other people who worked at Wares, and who lived in the tied houses on Whiteway Road. Some workers may have lived in Englishcombe village and walked daily using Washpool Lane.

Kate Fox brick wall
I am researching my great great grandmother Kate Fox. She was born in Bath, Somerset in 1859/1860. I have found her in documents from 1879 onwards when she married Charles Coles, but nothing prior to that. On the marriage entry her father is John Fox. I have tried Freebmd, Ancestry, Family Search and FMP and am at a loss on where else to try. I keep putting her to one side, but every time I go back to her there is nothing. Would appreciate any help and advice, thank you, Maria

Bath Union Workhouse Burial Ground
The Bath Union Workhouse Burial Ground is a rectangular plot with little evidence of its former use. It is still consecrated ground. Situated opposite Oolite Road - it provides a short cut for many local people. Just how many of those people know there are more than 3000 people buried there? Are any of your ancestors buried there? It would be great to have some feedback from you.

Thomas WATTS and Sarah COTTLE
I am researching my ancestors Thomas WATTS and Sarah COTTLE, and have found two marriages. The first 12 April 1776 (where both are recorded as widower / widow). The second 29 November 1779. Thomas was born in 1753, Sarah in 1759. Does anyone have an explanation? It seems strange that they might be two separate couples in the same area.

John Williams
John Williams was my 2xGreat Grandfather. All the Census returns gives his birth date as 1802 and Bath as the place of birth. He married a lady named Harriet Jacobs in Malmsbury, where he was in partnership in a business. He was a master builder. His family were all brought up in Malmsbury. As Williams is a common name, he has been difficult, if not impossible to trace him back. I have taken advice and it was suggested his father would have had money to be able to pay for his indenture. Maybe a builder himself. Is there anyone out there who can help me please!

Watts / Williams / Rumming / Hamlen
Most of my ancestors lived in Bath and the villages of Southstoke and Englishcombe. An ancestor with the name Goater came from Hampshire. The Williams family came from Kent.

Daniel Whiting (Bath) A Workman's Daughter
I have at least two ancestors with the name Daniel Whiting. One worked in the printing trade. They both lived in Bath. By chance I found two articles in Bristol Central Library. Both were written by a Daniel Whiting in about 1871/2. One title was "A Workman's Daughter". The other was "A Wife at Home". Both articles were published / printed in Bath. Whilst I can only see one Whiting family living in Bath, I can't assume that my ancestor was the author of these articles - but I would like to think he was. Does anyone in the printing trade have the answer to this one?

Former Slave Samuel Thomson died 1806
Samuel Thomson (or Thompson) drowned in the River Avon at Bristol in 1806. He was aged 20 years. He had been a servant to William Thomson (or Thompson) since the age of seven. William Thomson was from Bath (and Jamaica). I am trying to find out more about William Thomson. The incident of Samuel Thomson's death is well documented at Bristol Central Library. He is buried in the Strangers' Burial Ground in Cliftonwood.
