Newfound Hope
Hello, I have an ancestor who appears in a couple of Census's with the place of birth given as Hereford, Newfound Hope. Can anyone explain what this is or point me into the right direction to find out? Many thanks
GEORGE BAKER of Hereford 1858 & 1861
I am hoping that someone can suggest a way of solving this problem. Was George Baker of the City of Hereford in 1858 & 1861 the same person as George Baker of Geneva, Switzerland, a famous musical instrument maker in the 1870s to 1890s. If you search the internet - "George Baker" musical instrument maker, you will discover several items about him - including one of his instruments dated c1893 sold by Bonhams in 2008. I believe that GB of Geneva was an Englishman. The GB in Hereford 1858 advertised that he was a watchmaker & clockmaker. In the 1861 Census for Hereford, GB was staying at a pub - 27 years old, born London, a musical instrument maker. Any suggestions about how to prove that GB of Hereford was also the BG of Geneva would be greatly appreciated. Jean.
JAMES ADDIS of Mordiford 1881 Census
Can anyone read the occupation of James Addis of Mordiford in the 1881 Census. He was a 68 year old widower born at Allensmore. Living with him was his married daughter Rebecca Bailey. James's occupation consisted of two words "? cleaner". Can anyone read the word before "cleaner". The occupation has been translated as "clock cleaner"; however, on every other document, he has been described as labourer or agricultural labourer. His father & brothers were all labourers or agricultural labourers. The change from labourer to clock-cleaner is so big that it is unbelievable. What do other people think? References: Mordiford, village Backberry, Piece No. 2589, folio 54, page 12. Jean
Albert James Adams
Does anyone have any information on Albert James Adams believed to have been born in Herefordshire. He married Annie Cartwright in Cardiff in July 1909. He was 25years old and Annie was 23 years old when they married. Alberts father was Thomas who had unfortunately passed away by the time of the marraige? I will be grateful for any information on either the Adams or Cartwright families. Thankyou.
ELIZABETH MORRIS of Hereford 1841
Can anyone read the occupation of ELIZABETH MORRIS (wife of RICHARD MORRIS) in the 1841 Census. Richard Morris was a pavier - i.e. in the business of supplying & laying paving stones & doing kerbing. His business was financial successful - so it is hard to understand why his wife had an occupation. Her occupation looks like FRUITER - but a dealer in fruit is usually called a FRUITERER. Another possibility is SPINSTER. Richard died in 1846 at Hereford. I cannot find Elizabeth Morris in 1851 Census - or Jane Morris (presumably their daughter) (bonnet maker in 1841) in 1851 Census. In 1841, family was living at Victoria Street, parish of St Nicholas, City of Hereford. Hopefully, someone with better eyesight than mine can read that occupation. Piece 433/5. Enumeration District "part of 5". Folio 8a. Page 28. Jean
Can anyone read the occupation of DANIEL GREEN (aged 30) in the 1841 Census for the City of Hereford. I found him & his wife Catherine and some of their children in the 1851 Census at Newton, Lancashire - and in the 1861 Census at Tunstall, Staffordshire. It is the 1841 occupation which is important to me. In 1841, the family were at Mountain Yard, Bewell Street, parish of All Saints, City of Hereford. Piece No. 433/1. Enumeration district 2. Folio number 11b. Page 7. I'm hoping that someone with better sight than mine can read the 1841 occupation. Jean.
Henry Powell a butcher in Hereford
Hi, I am searching for my father's father. My father was an "orphan" sent to Canada in 1937. His father is listed as Henry Powell a butcher in Hereford on dad's release form (to be sent to Canada). The form was signed in 1936, but may have referred to in 1926/1927. (No father listed my father's birth certificate) My father's name is Frederick Henry Bishop (mother's surname), he was born in 1927 in Cardiff, Wales at a birthing home for unwed mothers. Dad's mother was Violet Nellie Bishop, born 1900 in Bristol (moving to Bromyard area soon after) Her father John Bishop was born in Pencombe in 1860. (Her mother was Annie Maria Orford also of the Bromyard area. They lived mostly in Bromyard area, Pencombe (at Mill Farm) and Bishop's Frome. Violet who went by Nellie later, lived (off and on between 1927 and 1994) on Villa Street in Hunderton, Hereford. The closest to a match in the 1939 registers is a Sydney Harry, butcher in Hereford, but dad is not a dna match to his granddaughter. Any clues could be helpful. Thank-you, Lori Krogel
THOMAS INNS of Hereford, in 1841
Can anyone read the occupation of THOMAS INNS of Blueschool Lane, Parish of All Saints, City of Hereford in the 1841 Census for Herefordshire. Piece No. 433/1. Enumeration District No. 1. Folio 3b. Page 29. Also, can anyone read the first name of his 7 year old son? It is possible, that his first name was in fact a surname e.g. his mother's surname - which I do not know. Hoping that some kind person might be able to read what I can not read. Thank you.
JOSEPH HENRY BAKER of City of Hereford
Can anyone find Rev Joseph Henry Baker of the City of Hereford in the 1841 Census or 1851 Census or 1861 Census? He is known to have lived in the City of Hereford in at least 1842 (at St Peters Street) and 1863 (at St Martins Street). In 1842, he was Chaplain at the Hereford Infirmary. If he can't be found in the 1841, 1851 & 1861 Censuses, can anyone find a Marriage entry or a Death entry for him in the Civil Registration Indexes. The complication in this search is that he was usually known as Rev. J.H. Baker or Rev. J. Henry Baker. He was probably a poor clergyman who cobbled together an income by holding several curacies & official positions anywhere in Herefordshire. Hopefully, some kind person might have better luck in tracing him than I have had. Thank you.
SAMUEL PROBERT of Hereford, victualler
From about 1832 to 1834, Samuel Probert was victualler of the Rummer Tavern in City of Hereford. He became an insolvent debtor and his bankruptcy proceedings were finalized about 1837. I am trying to find him in the 1841 Census. Does anyone know if Samuel Probert, the former victualler in City of Hereford in 1830s, was the Samuel Probert of Holmer, ag lab, living in parish of Holmer, Herefordshire, in 1841. In 1841, John Probert (14) & Susan Probert (10) were living with Samuel Probert of Holmer. Rather surprisingly, the name "Samuel Probert" was unusual in Herefordshire. Any ideas about how to resolve this problem will be greatly appreciated.
Can anyone find the entry in the Index to Civil Registration of Marriage for Elizabeth Dowling / Dooling / or similar? Elizabeth Dowling / Dooling married EDWARD DEVLEN (aka Devlin, Develin, & many other variations) on 12 November 1837 at the Roman Catholic Chapel in the City of Hereford. They were Irish - and it seems that their accent caused the locals trouble when trying to spell their surnames. The Civil Registration Index has an entry for Edward Devlen but I cannot find the entry for Elizabeth. For Edward: 1837; DEVLEN, Edward, Hereford, Vol 26, Page 249. I am particularly wanting to discover the spelling of Elizabeth's surname in the Civil Registration Index. I will be so grateful if someone can find Elizabeth's entry.
HENRY MASKELL, 1841 Census
Can anyone read the occupation of HENRY MASKELL (alias HENRY MASHELL) of Eign Street, Parish of All Saints, City of Hereford, Herefordshire. In the late 1840s, he was a grocer & tea-dealer and his wife ELIZABETH MASKELL (alias ELIZABETH MASHELL) was a dressmaker. Henry's occupation in 1841 looks like "B****maker journeyman". Reference in 1841 Census: 433/1, folio 15a, page 14. Any suggestions will be gratefully acknowledged.
Thomas Fowler of Hereford, 1841 Census
Can anyone read the occupation of Thomas Fowler of Bartonsham, City of Hereford, 60 years of age, in the 1841 Census. He used to advertise in the Hereford newspapers - so he is known to have bought bones, horns and hoofs to convert into bone manure for use on farms. On the Census return, the last two words of his occupation are "bone manure" - but what is the word or two before "bone manure"? Any suggestions will be gratefully acknowledged. Reference: Parish of St Owen Parish; Piece No. 433/6. Folio 16b. Page 13.
Mrs Starie, Castle Street, Hereford
Mrs Starie's death was reported in the Hereford Journal of 3 December 1834 - but her "first name" was not mentioned. Does any one know who she was? It was also stated that she had "highly gifted mental endowments". This suggests that she was a well-educated woman who, perhaps, had written a book. Does any one know anything about this woman?
Victoria Inn, Ross Road, Hereford
Does anyone know the exact location of this inn? The first innkeeper was probably William Biggs (either senior or junior). The name of "Victoria Inn" seems to have been adopted after 1837. However, the inn probably existed at least 10 years before 1837. Various addresses seem to have been given for these two men - but I suspect that they were always in the same house. Addresses: Red Hill (which is near Grafton Lane), St Martin Street (at that time, St Martin Street included a large stretch of what became Ross Road), Ross Road. The Biggs family were growers of apples, makers of cider, and had a Cider Shop (which I suspect became the Victoria Inn). Victoria Inn itself was in the parish of St Martins but the stable & an outbuilding were probably in parish of St John the Baptist.
Rebecca Cramp MORGAN
Does anyone know anything about this woman? From at least 1835 until 1841, Rebecca Cramp Morgan, a widow, was a Fishmonger or Fish dealer in the City of Hereford. In January 1835, her youngest daughter (Mary Ann Morgan) died. In the 1841 Census, Rebecca lived at Packers Lane, City of Hereford. The only other person in her household was her 25 year old daughter, Elizabeth Morgan. Both women were described as "Not Born in County of Hereford". I can find no trace of either woman after 1841. Any scrap of information about Rebecca or her daughters Mary Ann Morgan and Elizabeth Morgan. Thank you.
WARGENT, James of Hereford
Can anyone find James Wargent, wife Ann, and daughter Sarah (about 5 years old) on the 1841 Census or 1851 Census. James Wargent & Ann Davis married at St Martin, Hereford, on 9 November 1834. Daughter Sarah was baptised at St Martin, Hereford, on 14 February 1836. If not, perhaps, the family emigrated to a British colony? Jean of Hereford
George , John and Margaret Gouldrick
Interested in George Gouldrick the governor of the City Gaol in Gaol St from 1850s till it closed and his parents who were my wife's Gt Gt Gt Gt grandparents. John Gouldrick died 1837 at home in Union st. he had been a Sergeant in Sgt 36th Regiment of foot. Margaret born c 1775 Willington, died 1861 in Hereford. Any other Gouldrick information is also of interest.
BEACH, John - of Hereford, 1841 Census
I am hoping that someone can read the occupation of John Beach in the 1841 Census. In the early 1830s, he was the innkeeper/publican of the Coach & Horses in the City of Hereford. When he voted in the Parliamentary Election in October 1841, his occupation was farmer. In the 1841 Census, the occupation of John Beach of Newton Cottage is either a very long word or two words - but I can't read it! Census reference. City of Hereford, St John the Baptist parish, Piece 433, Book 3, Folio 59, Page 31.
PROBERT, Samuel - of Hereford, victualler
Can anyone identify Samuel Probert who was the publican at the Rummer Tavern, in Bewell Street, City of Hereford - probably from 1834 to 1836. He became a Freeman of the City of Hereford in 1832 - as a yeoman. He became an insolvent debtor in 1836. I can find no mention of him before 1832 and none after 1837.
MINTON, Elizabeth - Hereford, 1841 Census
Hopefully, someone with better eyesight than mine, can read the details of age & occupation of Elizabeth Minton of All Saints, Hereford, Herefordshire. The age has been transcribed as 20 years - which is unlikely. did not transcribe occupations for the 1841 Census. I expect it to be "ind" (= independent). The reference is HO 107 / 433 / 2 / page 12. I have also wondered whether the surname of Minton is correct - as it too is very hard to read. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Jean of Hereford
PROBERT, James - child - climbing boy
Can anyone identify this unfortunate boy who died on 26 March 1829. He was one of the children apprenticed to a chimney-sweep in the City of Hereford (unnamed in the newspaper report of the Inquest). The boy, 7 or 8 years of age, was overcome by the "deleterious gas" when going down the chimney. The very young thin boys whose job it was to go up & down the inside of the chimneys were known as climbing boys. Jean of Hereford
BULLEN, James - victualler
James Bullen was the victualler at the Redstreak Tree Inn (aka Redstreak Inn), Maylords Lane, City of Hereford - at least from 1831 until his death in 1839, aged 43 years. However, he is known to have been a victualler in 1826. His widow Mary Bullen was the victualler of the Redstreak for a short while after her husband's death. Does anyone know which pub James had in 1826 - and when he became the victualler of the Redstreak. Jean of Hereford
William Moore of Hereford
Can anyone find a Will for William Moore of Bridge street (aka Wyebridge street), City of Hereford, timber merchant & auctioneer (possibly, gent)? He was alive in 1795. He died before August 1799. Wife Ann. Daughter Parthenia Moore (died 1838, spinster, Bridge Street).
BLACKWELL, George of Hereford
I am trying to trace the ancestry of George Blackwell of the City of Hereford, shoemaker - living at Portfield Cottage in 1841 Census. He was then 55 years old & wife Ann was 60 years. They may have been the George Blackwell & Ann Harper who married at St Peters Hereford in 1802. There was an entry for him in Pigots Directory 1830 but not in 1835.

red mail R.C. Boarding Schools, Hereford, early 20th Century.
During the late 1900's or early 1920's, my mother (born 1908), was a pupil at two R.C. boarding schools, run by nuns, in "Hereford". As she said Hereford, we think that she meant Hereford itself, rather than Herefordshire. Please does anyone "out there" have any information on any such schools? Any information at all will be most welcome.
