Does anyone have any information about a soldier named Blezard ywho was killed in the Boer War. I believe he was a Captain but as I cannot find his name in the list of officers killed he may not have been. In with the letters my grandfather wrote home during the war there are two letters from a Mrs Blezard, the mother of the soldier, to my grandfather. One is written from an address in Belgravia, London, and the other from Towneley, Burnley. Can anyone help me identify who he was please?

POUNDER family in Burnley
I am from Bolton and my grandmother being a POUNDER. They came from North Yorkshire in the 19th Century. Middleton Tyas > Kirkby Moorside > Stokesley Over the years I have often seen Pounders in Burnley but never seen a link. There is no longer anyone from my family, with the Pounder surname, in the Bolton area. But I was looking last night at the website that checks distribution of surnames and there were still 47 in Burnley, as many as some places in the North East where more could be expected. Wondering if anyone related to these POUNDER on here and whether they know anything of their originas. MB

red mail Dickson or Dixon abt 1799
Can anyone assist with the forebears or siblings of Daniel Dickson or Dixon born Burnley, LAN abt 1799 ? Daniel worked as a woolcomber in his early years, later moving to Haughton-le-Skerne near Darlington, DUR where he settled and married in 1829. At the time of his marriage he signed himself as Dickson but shortly after adopted or reverted to the DIXON spelling. It has been suggested that Daniel's parents may be the Daniel Dixon and Jane Ford who married at Burnley in 1797. Another possible connection is Francis Dixon a woolcomber from Burnley aged 17 yrs who was recorded with the Royal Lancs Volunteers in 1782.

Several members of my family (DAWE) moved from Yorkshire to Lancashire, settling mostly in Burnley and Briersfield, as verified by the 1881 - 1911 census records. From this point some of them travelled to Canada and the US. Others stayed in England. John Harris, his wife Jane Dawe and some of their children were buried in a Burnley Cemetery. Would like to hear from anyone who may be a descendant, have knowledge of any family member, or be knowledgeable about the area. Thanks.

My grand parents were Hartley SHACKLETON and Mary Catherine NORMANTON both from Burnley. They married in 1902. My father James Robert was born in 1903 and his brother, Christopher, in 1907. He and his wife may have split up around 1911. They had a son Harry Ashworth SHACKLETON born in 1912 and a further son, Albert, in 1915. Mary Catherine died in 1916. Harry A. and Albert both seem to vanish from the records after that. Hartley was a "territorial" and he was recalled to the East Lancashire regiment in 1914. He went on to serve at Gallipoli and survived that and the war but was estranged from my father. I can find no marriage or death records that match Harry A. or Albert SHACKLETON after their births. Could they have been adopted either formally or informally with consequent name change? Can anyone help, please?
