Charles Jones(Born 1789)and his son Thomas (b.1829) lived at Glanmire House, 41 London Rd,. Forest Hill and had a currier/ leather merchants business. I am seeking information about Thomas Jones' date and place of death. He was at the above address in 1891, but although all his 5 children were married and living away from Forest Hill by 1901, he is not resident in any of their households.

red mail Thomas NEWTON, bc 1861 in Forest Hill
I am trying to trace the birth of my partner's gg gfather Thomas Newton. The 1871 census gives his birth place as Forest Hill, with father Thomas NEWTON and mother Mary (Unknown), which is consistent with the area (Sydenham/Forest Hill) where subsequent generations lived. Usual online sources haven't thrown up any likely candidates, and the parents are also shy in 1861. Help from anyone with local Newton connections, or access to local records for this location would be much appreciated. Regards, Meg

red mail McGregor / MacGregor / M'Gregor in Brockley Hill
Hi! I am a bit stuck with my Mc's in Forest Hill and Aberdeen... My Gt-gt-grandfather was Alexander McDonald, who was born in Aberdeen about 1855. He married Mary McGregor in Brockley Hill, Kent (later became London) in 1877. They went back to Aberdeen and had 2 children, Alexander Leslie and Elizabeth before moving to London and having at least 5 more children. Alexander was a baker and we know that his father was George, a joiner. Alexander is shown as MacDonald on the 1881 census, McDonald on the 1891 & 1901, and M'Donald on his wedding cert. (Mary is shown as M'Gregor on the wedding cert.) Mary's father was James and on Mary's wedding cert, which is a bit difficult to read, it looks as though James was a Superintendant of Police. Mary is shown on one census as having been born in Farnham, Kent, but I can't find a Farnham in Kent! On all 3 census entries she comes from Kent, though. We are unable to find Mary's father, James McGregor, anywhere. As Mary was born in Kent and married there, we assume he was a policeman in Kent, but he appears to be a little elusive. As far as Mary's husband goes, we have a couple of possible Alexanders, born around 1855 in Aberdeen, but as we know nothing about his mother, we're not sure where to look next. Any help, however small, gratefully received! Thanks and regards from Germany, Karen.
