Henry Powell a butcher in 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
THOMAS INNS of Hereford, in 1841
Can anyone read the occupation of THOMAS INNS of Blueschool Lane, Parish of All Saints, City of Hereford in the 1841 Census for Herefordshire. Piece No. 433/1. Enumeration District No. 1. Folio 3b. Page 29. Also, can anyone read the first name of his 7 year old son? It is possible, that his first name was in fact a surname e.g. his mother's surname - which I do not know. Hoping that some kind person might be able to read what I can not read. Thank you.
JOSEPH HENRY BAKER of City of Hereford
Can anyone find Rev Joseph Henry Baker of the City of Hereford in the 1841 Census or 1851 Census or 1861 Census? He is known to have lived in the City of Hereford in at least 1842 (at St Peters Street) and 1863 (at St Martins Street). In 1842, he was Chaplain at the Hereford Infirmary. If he can't be found in the 1841, 1851 & 1861 Censuses, can anyone find a Marriage entry or a Death entry for him in the Civil Registration Indexes. The complication in this search is that he was usually known as Rev. J.H. Baker or Rev. J. Henry Baker. He was probably a poor clergyman who cobbled together an income by holding several curacies & official positions anywhere in Herefordshire. Hopefully, some kind person might have better luck in tracing him than I have had. Thank you.
SAMUEL PROBERT of Hereford, victualler
From about 1832 to 1834, Samuel Probert was victualler of the Rummer Tavern in City of Hereford. He became an insolvent debtor and his bankruptcy proceedings were finalized about 1837. I am trying to find him in the 1841 Census. Does anyone know if Samuel Probert, the former victualler in City of Hereford in 1830s, was the Samuel Probert of Holmer, ag lab, living in parish of Holmer, Herefordshire, in 1841. In 1841, John Probert (14) & Susan Probert (10) were living with Samuel Probert of Holmer. Rather surprisingly, the name "Samuel Probert" was unusual in Herefordshire. Any ideas about how to resolve this problem will be greatly appreciated.
Can anyone find the entry in the Index to Civil Registration of Marriage for Elizabeth Dowling / Dooling / or similar? Elizabeth Dowling / Dooling married EDWARD DEVLEN (aka Devlin, Develin, & many other variations) on 12 November 1837 at the Roman Catholic Chapel in the City of Hereford. They were Irish - and it seems that their accent caused the locals trouble when trying to spell their surnames. The Civil Registration Index has an entry for Edward Devlen but I cannot find the entry for Elizabeth. For Edward: 1837; DEVLEN, Edward, Hereford, Vol 26, Page 249. I am particularly wanting to discover the spelling of Elizabeth's surname in the Civil Registration Index. I will be so grateful if someone can find Elizabeth's entry.
HENRY MASKELL, 1841 Census
Can anyone read the occupation of HENRY MASKELL (alias HENRY MASHELL) of Eign Street, Parish of All Saints, City of Hereford, Herefordshire. In the late 1840s, he was a grocer & tea-dealer and his wife ELIZABETH MASKELL (alias ELIZABETH MASHELL) was a dressmaker. Henry's occupation in 1841 looks like "B****maker journeyman". Reference in 1841 Census: 433/1, folio 15a, page 14. Any suggestions will be gratefully acknowledged.
Thomas Fowler of Hereford, 1841 Census
Can anyone read the occupation of Thomas Fowler of Bartonsham, City of Hereford, 60 years of age, in the 1841 Census. He used to advertise in the Hereford newspapers - so he is known to have bought bones, horns and hoofs to convert into bone manure for use on farms. On the Census return, the last two words of his occupation are "bone manure" - but what is the word or two before "bone manure"? Any suggestions will be gratefully acknowledged. Reference: Parish of St Owen Parish; Piece No. 433/6. Folio 16b. Page 13.
Mrs Starie, Castle Street, Hereford
Mrs Starie's death was reported in the Hereford Journal of 3 December 1834 - but her "first name" was not mentioned. Does any one know who she was? It was also stated that she had "highly gifted mental endowments". This suggests that she was a well-educated woman who, perhaps, had written a book. Does any one know anything about this woman?
Victoria Inn, Ross Road, Hereford
Does anyone know the exact location of this inn? The first innkeeper was probably William Biggs (either senior or junior). The name of "Victoria Inn" seems to have been adopted after 1837. However, the inn probably existed at least 10 years before 1837. Various addresses seem to have been given for these two men - but I suspect that they were always in the same house. Addresses: Red Hill (which is near Grafton Lane), St Martin Street (at that time, St Martin Street included a large stretch of what became Ross Road), Ross Road. The Biggs family were growers of apples, makers of cider, and had a Cider Shop (which I suspect became the Victoria Inn). Victoria Inn itself was in the parish of St Martins but the stable & an outbuilding were probably in parish of St John the Baptist.
Rebecca Cramp MORGAN
Does anyone know anything about this woman? From at least 1835 until 1841, Rebecca Cramp Morgan, a widow, was a Fishmonger or Fish dealer in the City of Hereford. In January 1835, her youngest daughter (Mary Ann Morgan) died. In the 1841 Census, Rebecca lived at Packers Lane, City of Hereford. The only other person in her household was her 25 year old daughter, Elizabeth Morgan. Both women were described as "Not Born in County of Hereford". I can find no trace of either woman after 1841. Any scrap of information about Rebecca or her daughters Mary Ann Morgan and Elizabeth Morgan. Thank you.
