Padmore's in Worcester
I'm looking for a certain Thomas Padmore who got my paternal 3rd great grandmother, Hannah Lawrence (formerly Blount) pregnant in 1835, her husband John Lawrence only being deceased some 2 years previously. The subsequent child being illegitimate was 'adopted' by Hannah and brought up as a Lawrence, albeit in truth a Padmore. Can anyone help please? Thank you in anticipation.

Churches Together
Do you have any information about this group, that replaced Worcester Council of Churches in the 1980s? I am researching St Paul's Hostel Worcester history (set up by WCC) and hope someone may have some documents relating to their early years.

Worcester Council of Churches
I am researching the history of St Paul's Hostel for the Homeless, Worcester, which was set up by Worcester Council of Churches about thirty-three years ago. It was established following a speech made by Captain Kath Stobart of the Salvation Army to Worcester Council of Churches. She challenged the churches to address the problem of people sleeping rough around the city. As a result, St Paul's Hostel first opened its doors in the city in 1977. It's first home was in Studdert Kennedy's old vicarage, in St Paul's parish in the Blockhouse, hence the name. Shortly after that, it moved up to Tallow Hill. I wonder if any curious foxes out there could help me track down the committee minutes of Worcester Council of Churches around that time. W.C.C, an ecumenical organisation, was disbanded some time ago, and replaced by Churches Together in Worcester, which has also ceased to exist. The minutes or committee notes of that time (c. 1976-77)would give valuable information about the founding of the hostel. If I could track down the person responsible for keeping the committee notes or maybe they were passed on to someone involved with Churches Together. If anyone could help me locate these documents, I would be most grateful.

Viking Ancestry via Ydna Test
Since my last entry with information regarding my Williams ancestors I have been tested by a Ydna company.I felt certain the results would show that I would be of Celtic ancestry.Surprisingly they show Norse or Viking ancestry. Please contact me if you are of Cornish ancestry and your family name is Williams for any help with Y dna research. Gerry.

Henry Hick Williams-Tinsmith Brazier.
Henry H Williams was my G. Grandfather.He was born in Falmouth,Cornwall.1814. His father Philip Williams died in 1817.Somehow Henry arrived in Worcester and married an Ann Williams in Claines in 1840.They had five children Thomas b.1842, Joseph,b.1845,(My Grandfather)Mary b.1848.Charles,b.1850.Harriet,b1852.Sadly Ann died ,Henry then married in 1855 Elizabeth Dawson.Four more children were Alfred b.1856,Henry b.1858,Sarah Elizabeth b.1862,and Alice b.1865. Joseph Williams married Frances Webb at Little Malvern,1871They emigrated to Brooklyn,USA,Joseph may have worked on the Brooklyn Bridge as he was also a Tinman Brazier.They had three children,John b.1874,Joseph H.and Frances Ann b1880.The family returned to England and settled in Colchester Essex,circa 1881 Two more chidren were born,Edward b.1882 (My father) and Henry Leonard b..1884 The family moved to Newcastle upon Tyne,after a severe earthquake damaged Wivenhoe and Colchester in 1884. It is possible that the family had Williams relatives in the Colchester area. I have traced the family back to the 1700's in and have established that we have Norse/Viking ancestry via Y dna testing.
