Bradshaw of Wendover
I have read that there is a brass in the South aisle of Wendover church memorializing William Bradshaw (d 1537), his wife, nine children and twenty three grandchildren. Is there a kind person who can tell me what exactly is on the brass? Does it name William's wife or his children of his grandchildren? Does anyone know where an illustration of this brass has been published?

red mail Amer, Henry Mark c. 1858
1891 census for Nine Elms, London gives birthplace of Henry Amer, then aged 32, as either Berks Windsor or Bucks, Wendover. No probability that either was correct!
red mail Abraham Williams
Looking for my G.G.Grandfather, Abraham Williams.I only have his Wedding Cert. on which he states that he was born on the Isle of Wight in 1856. I can find no proof of this. He says also that his father (also Abraham Williams) was a Baptist MInisterand his mother was named Clara Dixon Collicot. I have found a couple with these names who married in Wendover on the 5.3.1857. I do feel that they might be the right couple as two of his seven daughters, have middle names of Dixon and Collicot. All Iknow for certain is that he married Catherine Truscott in Melbourne in 1882 and had seven daughters. He is a mystery as I do not know why he came to Australia or if he came alone or with family. I do not know when or where he died. I do know that Catherine left Victoria (where she had family )and moved to N.S.W. with her seven girls and there is no mention of Abraham. Did he go back home? I can find no record of him dying in either Vic. or N.S.W. Possibly someone might let me know if I am on the right track, I do wish to find my mystery man.
