Raven/Crowden marriage 1830's
Hi, I'm looking for info about the groom ? Crowden who married Emma Raven in Oakham (I think! At least their daughter Emma Crowden was born in Oakham in 1834.) in the 1830's. He is reputed in the family to have been the son of a Chief from Sierra Leone (changed his name, obviously!). Does anyone know where I could find old newspapers from that time which might have details?
Many thanks for any help you can give.

Confusion of Spouse
Can anyone solve this puzzle for me. John Barfield born c 1830 Oakham married an Eliza from Stamford, Lincs born c 1826 ( see 1851 & 1861 censuses). According to familysearch.org John Barfield married Eliza Lockwood Isitt in 1850 at Oakham Rutland. However the free BMD entry shows that John Barfield married Q2 1850 Oakham 15 1095 to 1 of 4, the only eliza being Eliza Stimpson. Meanwhile Q2 1850 Oakham 15 1105 records that Eliza Lockwood Isitt married 1 of 4 but no Barfield or even a John in sight. I have tried to find a connection between Isitt and Stimpson in case there had been a previous marriage but to no avail. According to famsearch Eliza Lockwood Isitt was born c 1826 Stamford. Also there is a Eliza Stimpson christened 3rd August 1828 in Stamford. Anyone throw any light on the subject? Who did John Barfield marry? Was Eliza Lockwood Isitt the same person as Eliza Stimpson Many thanks for any clarification.

Hurst Michael, Oakham
Looking for information about Michael Hurst and wife Elizabeth in Oakham, Rutland. I believe he was buried at All Saints in 1858. Also their eight children.
I am seeking all details of the Kemm family in Oakham up to around 1825 - but in particular I am searching for the baptism/parentage of William Kemm, born around 1816. William later lived in Paddington, Middlesex and appears in the Middlesex Censuses of the 19th century. Any leads would be really appreciated.
Any information on the Sharpe's of Oakham, they had a shop on the high street called Sharpe Bros, they were bakers and confectioners?
Does anyone know where the Hollis family came from? They came to Cottesmore in the 1790's or the 1800's. They have all stayed fairly local since then but I cannot find where they were before. William married Elizabeth Laxton both born in 1820 and were lodging with the Garfoots when first married. William's parents were Thomas and Elizabeth Bex from Rotherby,near Melton Mowbray,Leics- they were married in Melton. Thomas was born in Cottesmore in 1791 and he was a blacksmith and Elizabeth was a draper and she kept the shop in Cottesmore and later her daughter Harriet ran it. William and Elizabeth had several children, one was Samuel a butcher there and one was a builder said to have built Barnsdale Hall and several large houses. His two sons wanted to join him but he said he never got paid for most of these lovely houses and made the boys go into carpentry. They later started Hollis flooring in Leicester specialising in parquet floors.I think one had a second marriage to a Annie Ashby, My G Grandfather married Mary Tidd from Ashwell. Any help please!
