red mail Charlotte Parr married William Mullins 3 Jun 1816Saint Marys,Portsea,Hampshire,England
Hello, Charlotte married William there on that date but the records dont seem to list either spouses parents- children were Robert and George. Robert goes on to serve in navy and married an Isabella Hamilton in Argyle. In terms of the Parr and Mullins children Roberts older than George so potentially either William or Charlotte had a parent or grandparent called Robert. Any help would be appreciated thank you.

red mail Family Research
I am researching the FLORANCE family of Porsea during the 18th and 19th Centuries. There are two specific areas I am seeking information. 1) John Florance & Sarah Florance (nee Webster). John (1772-?1847) was a carpenter, as were at least two of his sons John (jnr) and Charles (1813-1883) my great grand great father. The latter identifying himself as variously as a carpenter / joiner / builder living in various roads in Portsea latterly Stanfeild Lodge Aukland Road East. I have censuses but would like further information regarding their Trades / professions. 2) Henry Florance (1844-1925), my grandfather, who served an apprenticeship (census 1861) with a John W Wheeler, draper / linen weaver High Street (near Post Office) Portsmouth. I wish to find out more about the apprenticeship and John Wheeler. Many thanks' James
red mail THOMPSON Reuban Arthur Family from Portsea
HI I am trying to find anything I can regarding Reuban and his family (my great grandfather) He was born 1891. He died later in Wakefield in 1928. Was in the army at one stage. His father was John Thompson and mother possibly Jane Cotton. It looks like his father remarried a Maria Rebecca ... They had many children so he had many siblings. He married a Lilly Wale and had a daughter Alice Lillian Thompson. His mother Jane possibly died in the late 1890's (so did a couple of Thompson babies so this may be why. Any info gratefully received.
red mail ROSS, Elizabeth
I am trying to trace a marriage for Elizabeth Ross in the Portsmouth area in 1821. So far searching through online records cannot give me a definite date/location. Online trees suggest her husband was James William Clemons, but again, no match so far. Can anyone confirm/deny this rumour? She was born in Jamaica about 1803 and after her marriage went to India with her husband. Any ideas would be appreciated. Hilary.
Albert Edwin Andrew Jordan
I am looking for help in tracing my grandfather Albert Edwin Andrew Jordan who was with the Regimental Garrison Artillery in Portsmouth when he married my grandmother Violet Kathleen Tillyer in 1907. Albert was a bombardier rising to Sgt. And survived many conflicts in WWII. I have tried to get his war record but have been told nothing is available and it is probably a "burnt record". Albert lived in Birmingham from about 1915 and they had Arthur, Edward, Peggy, Ronald and Gerald William plus one other I have forgotten. I haven't been able to get back past their wedding. Violet was a nurse at Milton the local asylum at the time of her marriage. They separated about 1925 and Violet died in 1934 in Birmingham. I have no information of what happened to Edwin after he left the family home but believe he was a Park Police Officer. Any information on either or both would be very appreciated.

red mail Jeffery Family 1901
John Jeffery (b1879) married Jane Perryman (b1882) about nov 1901. I have just checked the 1901 census and his father also John Jeffery (b1861) is a Publican and a bricklayer at The White House, Goldsmith Avenue Milton at the parish of St James with his wife Esther Fennell (b1859) I believe this local pub was handed down to his son John Jeffery and wife Jane later as i have tracked the address and they are still listed as owners until at least 1907. Do you have any of these in your family tree if so please feel free to contact me,
