red mail WARR - Buckinghamshire
I am trying to trace the parents of William WARR (born c1811),Buckinghamshire.In the 1841 UK Census he is shown with his wife,Sophia (born c1818,St Sepulchre,Mddx),and his 3 children in the Workhouse,St Sepulchre,Newgate,Mddx.He appears in the censuses until 1871 and has escaped the workhouse in the 1851 UK Census,unfortunately the censuses only ever show his birthplace as "Buckinghamshire" and I have found a few William WARRS who fulfill the criteria in Buckinghamshire,but I can't exactly say which one is my William WARR.Also,I cannot find a marriage record for William and Sophia,so that would be helpful to have.
Military wife in HM's 60th Regiment
My ancestor David MONEY of HM's 60th Regiment married Catherine GLEASON (?) in St Peter's Church, Burnley, Lancashire on 15 March 1842. The couple were married in Burnley because the regiment was stationed there at the time. By the time of their marriage, the couple had four daughters, all of whom were eventually married to men in their father's regiment. According to the record of their marriage, Catherine's father was a carpenter named Thomas GLEASON (?). The 1841 Census suggests that David MONEY (at that time in barracks in Berkshire) may have been from Ireland. I have put a ? after the GLEASON name because I am not certain that it's correct; the marriage record is hard to interpret. Can anyone help pin down the parentage of either of these people?

My father was John Beverly Holcombe. He was an optician in Poole, Dorset. He was born in 1933 and had an elder sister, Valerie. She married Roy Clift.

red mail Actor, peddler and traveller
Looking for information about the Attis / Hattis /Aittes (or any other ways of mis spelling it that you can think of) family. James was a bit of an actor and traveller going round performing plays in portable theatres mostly around Wales. His wife was Harriet Manley. They Married at st. Martins, Birmingham in 1834. A daughter, Esther was christened at Newhall in 1835 & daughter, Sarah , was born in 1839 but died aged 2 and was buried at St. Martins. Its possible that another child, James, who died in Bristol in 1841 aged 6 months was also one of their children. I can't find any death or marriage for Esther so she may also have died young. I can't find correct deaths for James or Harriett either nor are they an any census's that I can find. They moved about a bit so I assume that is why, unless they avoided it for their own reasons. The only information I have about them is christenings, marriage and an article which mentions him in the Monmouthshire Merlin newspaper in 1852. Any snippets of information would be appreciated. Thank You.
