Williams and Crabb family
My ancestor Robert John WILLIAMS (born Gosport 1872) and married Mary Elizabeth STOKES (born 1875) in 1893. On documents relating to Robert Williams military service his mother is named as Hannah Williams. On his marriage certificate his father is listed at Charles Williams. I have previously understood that his parents were William WILLIAMS (born Weymouth 1851) and Emma Jane CRABB (born Bridport 1849). I had several census returns that support the Weymouth / Bridport connection. I am wondering whether someone has an explanation.

red mail Balston family Dorset
Has anyone got any info on this family. I am particularly interested in Ann Balston who would have been born in the 1820's (LDS have one born in Poole in 1824 but I am not sure if it is the same person). She may have been the aunt of Kate Balston born c 1855 in Weymouth, Walter b c1858, Sidney b c1860, Thomas b c1862, James b c1870, all born in Weymouth and living there 1871 (can't make out the address 2 Albeck Lodge?). Ann married John Messenger Lake q3 1847 in Weymouth and they had a son born shortly afterwards, possibly registered in Dorchester. There is a record of the death of an Ann Lake (as she would have become) in Dorchester q1 1851 so she would have just missed the census (but is it the same person?). Son Walter was living with his wife and his 2 young sons, it appears in the same dwelling in Weymouth mentioned above with the Balston family.

red mail The Davage family
I am researching the Davages of Dorset, particularly Weymouth.

red mail Scattered Leaves & Tangled Weymouth branches
since last visiting this site, it is interesting how many additional name connections that I could add. Looking back through the White - Brown family of Wyke Regis, how many branches are there with Thomas White and Anne Charlotte Bellamy. In Weymouth, we can visit Trinity, Hope & Cove Row but look again after awhile and another citizen that we overlooked on our last visit is likely connected to one or more of our tangled branches & scattered leaves. I began my Weymouth journey with Zelley, then quickly got a Lovell, White and Bellamy. Then slowly gathering more names such as Mabb, Vallens, Baker. Fast forward and we can connect to the children of a David Gray, or a Pearce, Flisher or a Randall and Purchase. Then circle back for a Noble and a Silvester.

red mail Elizabeth Hilton
Elizabeth was brought up in Weymouth and became a state registered nurse in the early 1960's. Her mother was a J.P. in Weymouth. She has a younger brother whose name I believe is Sean. I lost contact with her in 1966 and came to Australia in 1967. She may have married and therefore be known by a different surname. She did meet a fellow called Robert in 1966 after we split up. I think he was an Oxford Don but I cannot be sure. It is unlikely that she is now living in Weymouth. Elizabeth was my first love. I would love to know how life has treated her,whether she has a family etc. I am happily married with children and grandchildren. Please contact Roy. Today is the 24th January 2012. I believe that this is Elizabeth's birthday. Many happy returns.
