I am trying to track down my grandfather, Frederick William Hunt about whom I know very little and who is proving very elusive. I know his father was called George and his mother (possibly) Ann Banfield. He worked as a water inspector at Catterick garrison and married my grandmother, Margaret Douglass in 1922. They lived in the Richmond area until her death 6 years later when he disappeared leaving my father to be raised by relatives. He appeared on my parents' wedding photos in 1949 and then disappeared again. He died in Hertfordshire in 1965, aged 73. Dad has mentioned a Middleton connection and also a Hertfordshire link but is unclear about details. Having hit a brick wall over this one, I now feel I am slaowly being driven up it!! Any information would be most welcome. Frei

red mail FAWCETT
Seeking information on the Fawcetts of Richmond.
red mail WARING
Looking for information on Joseph WARING who married Ann RODHAM at Richmond on 12 June 1832. They had the following children: Jane, born at Gilling on 13 November 1832 and baptised at Richmond on 7 December 1832; James, born at Richmond in 1833; Sarah, born at Richmond in 1837; Mary A (Ann?), born at Richmond in 1842; Hannah, born at Stockton in 1844; Ellen, born at Stockton in 1845; and Emma, born at Stockton in 1849. The baptism register entry for Jane gives Joseph's occupation as 'malt-maker'. When Jane married Thomas COULSON, a ferryman, in Hartlepool in 1853, Joseph's occupation was given as 'brewer'. On his death certificate he was listed as a 'labourer'. Information in the 1851 census indicates that Joseph was born c1805 in Ripon. Joseph died of heart disease at Stockton on 8 December 1855 and his wife Ann died of cholera in Stockton in 1849. At the time of Joseph's death there were a number of children who would have been dependent and I am particularly interested in finding out what happened to them. The eldest child, Jane, had only married a couple of years before, but Ellen ("Helen") is enumerated as living with Jane and her husband in Hartlepool in 1861. James was 18 at the time of his father's death and was probably independent but it's possible the youngest children may have ended up in the workhouse, at least for a while. Does anyone recognise any of these people, pls?
