red mail Pope family
Researching Elizabeth Pope, born about 1819. Married Joseph Adams in 1850 in Sturminster. Her father was called Thomas, and was a blacksmith I think. Any help with name of her mother etc much appreciated.
red mail Trowbridges with Newfoundland, Canada connection
My grandfather is Henry (AKA: Harry) Trowbridge born in 1876, in Newfoundlad, Canada. I've been told that his father was one of three brothers who came to Canada from England. The three brothers were Samuel, Thomas and John. Judging from my grandfathers birth date, I would assume these three brothers were born between 1840-1860. Would anyone have any information on this family?? Church records here, for that time period have burned and I'm at a deadend!!! ************* In response to the above post, I was informed that there was a family in this community that had three sons with the names mentioned above. I am particullarly interested in whether these three brothers came to Newfoundland, Canada, If they were married at the time, if thier parents and possible sibblings also came to Newfoundland. Any info or leads would be appreciated. Thanks.
red mail Mary Elizabeth Kellaway Okeford Fitzpaine
my great step-grandmother was Mary (Elizabeth) or (Elizabeth) Mary Kellaway who was born in 1871 according to family records in Okeford Fitzpaine, Dorset, England. She was the second wife of Arthur Ridout, married and lived in Sturminster then moved to Monmouthshire. There were 12 children in all, the last 3 or 4 were hers, including Robert, Martha, Charles and Annie Ridout. I believe she is the stepmother to my Nana (Nellie) Ellen Ridout who married Albert John Frederick Williams and lived in Cwmbran on Spring Street where my father was born. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I would love to get my hands on a copy of Kellaway/Ridout's marriage certificate or find out the names of her parents and where/when they were born so I can delve further thanks

red mail CLARKE, Samuel
I'm looking to connect with anyone researching the CLARKE family in the area of Okeford Fitzpaine, early to mid-nineteenth century period. My 2G grandfather was Samuel Clarke, born abt. 1847 in Okeford Fitzpaine. Samuel's father was John Clarke (b. 1 Jan 1801 - d. 22 Feb 1853) and his mother was Elizabeth Penny (b. 5 Jan 1817, death date unknown); Samuel left Dorset for Newfoundland, Canada some time after 1861. Any connections would be appreciated.
red mail Simon Philips or Phillips
I'm looking for Simon Philips or Phillips, dairyman. His daughter Henrietta Philips married Robert Hayward (born Christchurch Hants, but lived in Durweston) on 2/11/1857 in Okeford Fitzpaine, so he would have been born around 1827. Her mother may have been Martha, but this is not sure. Henrietta's sisters were Mary Elizabeth (married name Allen) and Leah (married name Edwards). Simon does not seem to be on any of the censuses in or near Okeford. Henrietta and Robert moved to Knowle in Lancashire.
