Florence Williams (Sprigg)
I am trying to find relatives of Florence L Williams (nee Sprigg). She was born in 1922 and married Victor Williams. They had four children - Susan (1951), Peter (1952), Sylvia (1954) and Karen (1961). I am not sure if any of them have married but if anyone can help me to contact one or all of them, I would be very grateful.
red mail BALL family, Boxmoor, Hemel Hempstead
It appears my Great Grandfather (Alfred Ball, 8 yrs) and his two brothers (William Ball, 14 yrs, and John Ball, 11 yrs) were sent to Canada in 1887 and 1888 respectively, through Fegan Homes. I am hoping to find their parents' names or any information on their situation before leaving for Canada.
red mail Monk family
I am searching for any information on the descendants of John Monk, born 1818 at Bierton. He was married to Mary Ann Janes from Ivinghoe. Their eldest daughter Sarah, born 1851 at Hemel Hempstead went on to have two children - Romilly Thomas Sampson born 1873 and Evelina Thomasina Sampson born 1875. There is no father's name on either certificate. One born in Watford and one in Camberwell. Any info would be welcome.
red mail Edmond Abbott
On 1881 census Edmond ABBOTT is shown as born in Hemel Hempstead in 1841. At that time he was living in London and was shown as a widower. Cannot find trace of him in the 51, 61 and 71 cenuses nor of his marriage.
red mail Catling Early 18C Pocket Watch Owners
I have two pocket watches with the names George Catling and James Catling printed on the chapter rings of the dials in lieu of numerals. The watch cases are hall marked 1814 and 1815 respectively and both watches were retailed in Hemel Hempstead as evidenced by the retailer's name and address on the movements. The James movement also has an engraved stringed musical instrument(ukelele or similar) superimposed on what appears to be a musical score. Such watches at that time would only be available to wealthy people and invariably custom made to order. The musical engraving suggests the owner had some relationship to music. Being retailed in Hemel Hempstead suggests the owners were from the town or the surrounding district. The records show a George Catling born 10th March 1799 and a James Catling born 12th September 1800 to John and Mary Catling. This would mean the watches were given to the boys when they were 15 years old (coming of age at that time possibly?) assuming I have the correct information in respect of the owners. If anyone has any info re Catlings at that time in the HH/Hertfordshire area that can help me in tracing the original owners of these fine watches and their address/occupation I should be very grateful. July 23rd 2012. Thanks to an amateur genealogist, Chris Reynolds, the owners were identified as the sons of a wealthy innkeeper, John Catling who ran the Swan Inn (still standing but now an antiques centre) in Boxmoor, Hemmel Hempstead. John's will of c1826 stated that he had £10,000 pounds (c£750,000 at today's value) invested with the Bank of England. Also, thanks to Chris I was put in touch with Sue, a direct living descendant of George Catling, who subsequently put me in touch with her brother Mark who still retains the Catling surname. With the info provided by Chris, I was then able to go on and establish and visit where the watch owners are buried along with other members of the Catling family and their spouses. Sue has a large number of Catling documents going back as far as George which provides info about what was George's occupation; unfortunately there are no documents in Sue's collection to establish what James did with his time. The only reference that has been found is the census for 1841 which identifies him as an Independent which I understand means that he was a person of independent means. Chris Reynold's has also speculated that there may have been a third personalised watch for John Catling, the brother of George and James, born 2 years after James. Be nice if there was and it could be retained with the other two watches.
Looking for any information on a boy born around 1943 to 1946 , surname Tomlin, possible first name Brian. No other information known, except the surname Carter connects as does the place Billingshurst.

red mail James HARRIS b. c1816 Hemel Hempstead
I am trying to prove the parentage of James above. According to his marriage certificate his father's name was John. A witness to the this marriage, which took place in 1847 in Independant Chapel in Hemel, was a Sarah HARRIS. Sarah could be his mother but I need more proof like his baptism. I have trawled the film of the PRs for St. Mary's without success and it isn't on the IGI although they do have some nonconformist baptisms. There is a John & Sarah baptising children but no sign of a James! Can anyone help who has access to baptismal records for Hemel Hempstead? I live in Suffolk and I do not drive. Many thanks
