red mail Abbots Langley Scout Group Formation 1909
We have information on those boys who formed the first troop of Scouts in what was then known as the 44th South West Herts Scout Group. Many of these boys went off to flight in the 1st World War, but of the 40+ boys we have traced, only 4 of them were killed in action. I think that says something for the lessons learnt within Scouting at that time. Please contact me if you would like to know any more. There are too many names to put here.
red mail WEEDON family 18th Century
My g-g-g-grandfather Samuel WEEDON was born in Abbots Langley 1788/89, son of John and Elizabeth. He had younger siblings Hannah, Charlotte, Elizabeth and Susanna. There were also a number of children born in the village prior to Samuel with father John Weedon who may or may not be siblings (no mother's name given). I am unable to identify or find any marriage for parents John and Elizabeth. Weedon was quite a comon surname in the village in the 18th century. Would like to get in touch with anyone with similar interests.
Appreciate any feedback on my G/Grandfather ALFRED REIS WINTER (b) abt 1854 Bristol who m MARIA ALPASS April 1877 Gloucestershire. He is listed 1881 Cenus as a Police Constable. In the 1891, 1901, & 1911 census he is listed as a Detective Inspector Railways. Have searched records via Metro Police & others to find him to no avail. He is listed 1911 census as visiting his daughter EMILY MARIA EVERITT, her husband HARRY & her son CRYIL FREDERICK STEPHEN PRIDGEON from first marriage. Alfred m OLIVE M VALLANCE IN 1926 @ Newton Abbott, Devon 1926 after his wife MARIA dies in New Zealand without Alfred. It appears he remained in England whilst his wife MARIA emigrated to New Zealand to join her other siblings. He died @ Watford 1930 aged 76. Can anyone shed any light on any of the above information & share any pictures they may have of him. I would be most grateful for any clues. MaryBeth, New Zealand

Looking for Descendants of Thomas Dickenson and Ann Judge. I believe my GGGrandfather Thomas b.1814/15 may have been the illigitimate son of Amelia their first daughter.

On his Army records Thomas is stated as his father but I do know by the IGI records that he had a son born in 1816 who lived and was in later Census records.
